Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
3.5 Are You My daddy? Stars

 photo toni4_zpszuheuerm.gif

Wolf with Benefits is the 8th book in the Pride series and it was a little better than the last one, but no where near as good as the other ones. I again found myself getting bored at parts of this book. It got better towards the end when there was a little more action. I like Ricky Lee okay. There is nothing real special about him that stands out and makes me take notice. He is just kinda there. Toni is okay I guess. I went back and forth on her between her annoying

Blog rating: A-

“Your charm makes me want to punch you in the nose.”

That made Ricky chuckle. “I’m not trying to piss you off, darlin’. Just trying to get you to give me a chance.”

“Why?” she had to ask. “I’m really not that interesting. I’m cute but not stunning. I’m not excessively tall. And sexually, I’m rather vanilla. So then what is it?”

Rickey decided to be honest with her. “I like your hair.”

She suddenly went tense. “You don’t have to be mean.”

2 Stars…An Unexpected Letdown

Wolf with Benefits is the eighth book in Shelly Laurenston’s hilarious and sexy Pride series. The female and male shifters – sometimes human mates – battle wits, pour on the charm, karaoke, race cars, display peculiar traits (love the bears!), and enjoy rigorous love lives. Set in modern times, the focus is primarily on the romance with an ongoing mystery-suspense involving human/shifter violence. This paranormal romance book has some of the ingredients Laurenston u

3.5 stars

So when Sara recommended this one to me, I wasn't sure what her motivations were.
I mean, maybe she was trying to get back at me for some of my recommendations to her.
Evidently, I almost ruined Wonder Woman for her...
Pshhht. As if!

Anyway, I went into Wolf with Benefits with my fingers crossed, hoping that it wasn't some sort of a clever prank.

It wasn't! I thought this was a pretty cute story about a family of crazy prodigy jackal-shifters, and the normal sister who keep them all from imp

I went into this book blindly. Yes, I decided that it was a good idea to jump into a well established series on book number 8. I knew that this was going to be a book about a werewolf (I figured that one out from the title) but that was about the extent of my knowledge. Believe it or not, everything actually turned out okay and I didn't feel too lost. I did find that there were a whole lot of characters to try to keep straight that I would gu

Beginning I would like to make clear the fact that I liked this book and it needs to be emphasized because my thoughts may point to the opposite!:P



My main problem with the book? I couldn't find the romance. I looked hard, tried every corner but it just wasn't there... I didn't see any great feelings developing, I didn't see how they went from friends to f*ck buddies to mates. I just couldn't see it! I want some relationship development, I want to be able to discern the point were they go from fr

I love Shelly Laurenson. Rarely has a book by her failed to make me laugh and make me feel good. Here-I did laugh. Facing the crazy Parker brood, who wouldn't? But, the romance was severely lacking. Frankly I was happier to read about EVERYONE other than the H/h. I mean, on one side, we have crazy genius kids, Bo(BO!) and bunch of characters we all know and love, and on the other two very, well, boring characters (And I can't even remember the names) whose love affair was very much in th

Review originally posted on Demon Lover's Books & More


I breezed right through this one, even though it’s over 400 pages. With Shelly Laurenston’s trademark sense of humor, her shifters are always fun to read.

Toni Jean-Louis Parker and Ricky Lee Reed are fun characters to read, and they’re fun to watch fall in love as they are so incredibly opposite.

Toni is the only non-prodigy in a family full of child-prodigies. When she was younger her dad used t

Ricky Lee Reed feels life provides enough entertainment and if he waits long enough it will come to him. Seeing the adorable woman with a gaggle of children waiting at the arena looks like just what he is looking for, especially those beautiful curls he would love to put his hands into. Toni Jean-Louis Parker is the queen of organization and being able to handle any situation put in her path, when Ricky tries to pick her up she has the help of her brother and sisters to keep him at bay, should w ...more

This is the Pride book I've been waiting for. Beautifully paced action, hilarious dialogue, and just the right amount of shifter mayhem and violence mixed in with the romance. I've always preferred the bear books, but Ricky Lee is right next to Bo and Crush on my favorites list.

Toni's family of prodigies brings all the crazy fun of the wild dogs, but with a sweet, centered heroine who is a pleasure to read. And as

Grown-up world was a little depressing these last few days, so I wanted to read a fun book that would cheer me up a little bit and that's why I picked Wolf With Benefits by Shelley Laurenston. I've been reading her Pride series for years now and the one thing they always never failed to do is to make me laugh.

It was the same with this installment- super-fun paranormal/shifter story with witty, playful and endearing characters. I highly recommend readin

Once again, something was missing in the romance department. I still laugh like a loony with the craziness that only Ms. Laurenston can create, but I miss the love that made me sigh like a ninny in the first books of the series. Is it time to end it?
Tina
I love Shelly Laurenston's books like crazy. Crazy! So it pains me very much to say how much I did not love this one.

One of the things I like the most about this series is the sense of controlled chaos. The characters are over the top, the relationships are all intertwined and so many characters from previous books appear that it almost feels like this series is one long continuous narrative. However I think in this book the author lost control of that chaos.

It has been a long time since I laughed this much while reading a book. The characters and their interactions with one another were fabulous. Wolf with Benefits has a great mix of humor, romance, and an awesome cat of charters.

Antonella Jean-Louis Parker is the oldest of the Jean-Louis Parker children. She is also the only non-prodigy of the bunch. Her loving and slightly psychotic and certainly high maintenance siblings remind her of all of her short comings as often and snarkily as possible. I

3.5 out of 5. Liked this one a lot but Ricky Lee got lost amongst his love's stronger personality and the other much stronger characters. Still. Yeah. Lots of fun to be in the middle of the crowd of shifters again. :)

Wolf with Benefits is the 13th book in Shelly Laurenston's Pride/Pack series.. Technically there are three books in one and ten in the other but that line got blurred a while ago and you will find characters from both series popping up on occasion. So as far as I am concerned, it's one series *grins* yeah I know but it makes it easier for me.

The most remarkable thing about any book I have read by Ms Laurenston is her insane sense of humor. Her ability to make these characters believable through

Her work is snarky, outrageous, off the wall and hold your sides funny. Shelly Laurenston’s shifters are some of the funniest creations in literature and that holds true for her latest effort, Wolf with Benefits.

Toni is a jackal shifter, and the caretaker for her impossible family. Her ten siblings are all prodigies, and Tony, although wickedly smart and organized beyond normal, feels just average. When the opportunity comes along to

Annette  Dahl "Old Vicarious Reader"

I have nothing but praise for another delightful read by Shelley Laurenston. She always makes me giggle with her Pack, Pride, and Clan storytelling. In the words of the Tennessee Pack, Y’all, this one was a hoot an a hollar.

I don't think anyone should start out thinking this a regular romantic paranormal story. Because, most of it was stupid funny. And, if you loved the Beverly Hills Hillbillies and Cheaper by the Dozen, you'll really enjoy this story.

I haven't been impressed by the last few books by this author, this one seemed so seamless and flowed. Yes, the romance came out of the blue and was underdeveloped, heroine's family was weird and so was the hero following her but hell this is the Pride series which is nothing if not weird.

I'm done.

For me this was just a mess. Way too many character cameos from previous books and too many new characters introduced as well. Three or four different storylines to navigate. Some meshed and some didn't. There was the classic pride humour but I found that grating and repetitive.

LOVED IT (in sing songy voice) from beginning to end LOVED it! I so love Ms. Laurenston’s sense of humor, it has you laughing from beginning to end. In the book we met Toni Jean-Louis Parker and her incredible family. A family of 10 prodigies, Toni is the 11th and oldest sibling and the only non-prodigy. She is in charge of all the progeny and that is a full time job. The siblings crack my ish up! All of them, they are just so bratty and narcissistic just the kids alone make this book worth a re ...more

This author rarely writes anything that doesn't overflow with humour and this book is no exception. Wolf with Benefits is part of the Pride series and features a rather persistent Wolf shifter Ricky Lee Reed and Toni Jean-Louis Parker the Jackal shifter who can organise just about anything. Now that's important to remember becase Toni has ten siblings and they are all tremendously talented prodigies who rely on her for everything. A chance encounter with a particulately angry ice hockey player s ...more

I have been eagerly awaiting this installment of the Pride Series. I knew by page nine that I would not be disappointed...why? Well by page nine I was laughing out loud (literally). Oh how I love Shelly Laurenston's voice and her wicked ability to cause me to laugh out loud (not chuckle) AND not be embarrassed when people start staring at me like something is wrong.

We are introduced to the Jean-Louis Parker Pack. They are a family of prodigies- and that my friends is where the fun begins...

Looking for a laid back alpha? Then look no further than Shelly Laurenston’s Wolf With Benefits. Ricky Lee is different from what we have seen to date in this series but oh my goodness he is just as sexy. I love a man with a sense of humor and appreciation of the ridiculous and Ricky Lee had that in spades. He had a manner that was low key yet he still managed to get his point across. I found myself charmed by him even though Toni took a bit longer. He supported her and respected her equally. I ...more
