And I was dying to read it....because...
The hot times don't even happen until 75%..and it's just one time. *Insert sad face here.*
But all was not a total loss. This book is about the three MacKilligan sisters. They all are kinda crazy. I like that in my characters so I settled in to see what they would get up too.
The sisters are all half sister shifters. They all got the honey badger part from their worthless ...more
"Okay, you know the drill.."
Max said, in a flat voice,"Go in, kill everybody, get Stevie out."
"That's not the drill!"
"It could be..."
I like Max. Oh, and Max is a girl. So is Stevie, and our main character, Charlie. They are s ...more
Hot and Badgered is Charlie and Berg's story but it felt ...more
This book kind of like the paranormal shifter version of Becoming A Vincent, a book I really enjoyed so it's a positive comparison. It has crazy antics, nutso family members, and funny repartee. It's great! But, and of course there is a but considering my rating, it does drag on a bit long at times. Especially when it's suddenly introducing a whole bunch of secondary characters, most of which I never end up caring much about. Luckily, the MacKilligan sisters are endlessly entertaining. ...more

Such zany and crazy characters, it was simply impossible not to love this animal-shifter romance and the humor was definitely "right up my alley" as well.
I am so looking forward to the next installment of this ongoing chaotic story.
Wow, these MacKilligan sisters were certainly something else.
Lesson learned here: Don't piss off a honey badger if you want to keep all your body parts intact.
I totally adored Charlie (the heroine) and I can't wait to read Stevie's story next.
When I received my approval for an ARC of Hot and Badgered I did a wee bit of a shake and shimmy happy dance. After a stressful few days in real life, reading this story was like a breath of fresh air. I laughed, smirked, squirmed and sighed throughout the whole story. I also did one of those silent laughs that ends in a snort trying to be quiet because it was 4:00 in the morning and hubby was asleep beside me. Yeah, yeah, I should have been aslee ...more
The MacKilligan gals are a riot all three of them. The sneak peek enticed me and the prologue hooked me. Charlie, Max and Stevie are the best. The BEST.
Charlie MacKilligan is the oldest of the sisters she is the calm one, the worry wort, the one who gets shit sorted out and with their POS father there is a lot of shite for Charlie to get sorted. She is a honey badger/she wolf hybrid shifter who can’t actually shift but she is totally kickarse, well all ...more
I'd rate the narration at a 3 Stars.
Hot and Badgered is the first in a brand new series and it wa ...more
I received chapter 1 ONLY ARC copy of Hot and Badgered from Kensington Books. This is my honest and voluntary review. Hot and Badgered is set for publication ...more
What I didn’t like:
- too many side characters
- so many hijinx happening
- book was trying so hard to be funny
- took too freaking long for the mc to get together
- honestly, not enough focus on the romance
definitely not my fave in her Pride world.
Charlie MacKilligan, a honey badger/wolf hybrid, has been shot, fallen off a balcony, and is running away from armed military types that want to kill her. She’s not sure why but she’s pretty damn sure her father Freddy is at fault. She and her two sisters, Max and Stevie, haven’t had the most normal of lives, but once they meet Berg Dunn, grizzly bear, they start to realize that normal isn’t what’s important - family is. Well, the ones you don’t want to kill, at least. And yes, eventual ...more
Charlie Taylor-Mackilligan is the protector over her two sisters. She has had to be, thanks to her cursed father. Her sisters can take care of themselves but together three of them are a force to be reckoned with and unstoppable. When she lands on a balcony after being attacked she gets assistance from Berg Dunn a grizzly shifter, it is short, bloody, and sweet but Berg can't get Charlie out of his mind.
Back home Berg finds himself in front of Charlie again. Realizing her family needs ...more
Or should I say this reads more like honey badgers on crack!!!
This reminds me of what I don't like about Shelly Laurenston's books. There were too many characters, crazy shenanigans, and a love story that was not the primary plot. Oh and the plot was sooooo convoluted that I kept forgetting what was the purpose of the book.
The book starts out great with three young female honey badger shifters manipulating the wolf shifters. I was immediately intrigued!! Then it devolved ...more
The first in this brand new series by Shelly Laurenston is just as fun and crazy as her other books. When Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan comes running into Berg’s life, he simply cannot just let her go, especially when it seems like she is in trouble. Running from people trying to kill her, you can already get the feeling that this book is going to be a wild ride. With larger-than-life characters and hilarious jokes, these characters will definitely make you laugh and steal your heart at the same ...more
There you go, my review probably bias but from few authors who specialise in writing funny shifter storylines out there, she is on top of the list for me! Her books always made me 😂😂😂 so hard.
However I also realised, few of my friends don’t like her style of writing. It seems chaos and all over the place sometimes but for me is well organised chaotic storyline, and her characters are so crazy funny, you don’t even realise how brutal these non humans behavior can be!
I've long been a fan of the authors dragon shifter books and think this story had all the same elements goin ...more
I couldn't stop reading because of what was happening and the pace is fast!
Btw, this is not an insta-lust, fated-mate book so if you want a book heavy on romance and sexy times, I'd suggest you look somewhere else. In fact, I would say that the romance between Berg and Charlie is more of the backstory of this book. It's so subtle --- which, in itself, is wonderful and refreshing!
At it's ...more
I had a review. It might have just been a series of gifs but they were the perfect way to review this book and now they're gone. And there is no way my lazy ass is gonna try and write it all over again.
Safe to say, I can't believe a book like this exists let alone a human had some hand in writing it. Also, I am never calling my self a crazy ass bitch cause there is no way I can ever meet the standards these MacKilligan sisters have set.
In terms of plot my head is still trying to find the right s ...more
I cannot even try to explain what the plot is. It's basically three half honey-badger sisters: Charlie, Max, and Stevie, who get into heaps of trouble because of their fucked-up dad. But don't feel sorry for the MacK ...more
Honey badgers are a class unto themselves, fearless and ready to take on the world so when assassins kick in her door, Charl ...more
As you would expect there is a ton of insanity and mayhem, I loved every page of it. The sisters are possibly the baddest things on the planet when together and not far from it going solo.
The plot is too convoluted to even try to explain but there is almost non-stop action and humor on every page and so you ...more
I had enough. 52% and still no romance. And I thought I was reading a PNR Romance.
From the first page I was reading just how everyone is chasing the three half breeder sisters to kill them or what so ever but they are strong, so strong that no one can kill these three sisters and everytime they got away.
Then there are lots of side characters that sometimes I lost track, who is who and what they do or doing. And with lots of multiple POV this book left me totally confused.
Romance par ...more
Hot and Badgered is the first book in Shelly Laurenston’s Honey Badger series and if the rest of the series continues to be as hilarious as this book I will definitely need to stock up on Depends due to uncontrollable laughter while reading.
We are introduced to the MacKilligan sisters, Charlie, Max and Stevie, the sisters are hybrid shifters who each have different mothers/breeds but share the same honey shifter dad. The women may be different mixes of honey badger hybrids, one is full honey bad ...more
But this is a start of a new series --- yes it is really just a continuation of the Pride series but I figured there was a new plot arc happening. And I was right.
I centers on the three MckIlligan sisters who al have different mothers but share a father, an amoral loser wh ...more

Shelly Laurenston has not lost her touch. Not only that, but I think this has beat her other series all to heck and back. Definitely Off The Charts fantastic read.
The world build and flow of the story was shear perfection.
The humor has you laughing out loud.
The romance is adult and perfectly written. It is not erotica nor porn. It is adult.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Ms. ...more
Charlie, Max, and Stevie are half sisters who share the same dead beat father. They were raised by a wolf pack, but not being wolves, they didn’t fit in. They are all they have.
Charlie is the oldest, half honey badger and half wolf. She is more responsible than the others.
