Bite Me by Shelley Laurenston

Livy Kowalski has no time for idiots. When you shapeshift into a honey badger, getting through life’s irritants is a finely honed skill. Until she gets stuck housing her nutso cousin and dealing with her dad’s untimely and unexplained demise.

That’s where Vic Barinov comes in—or his house does. Vic can’t step outside without coming back to find Livy devouring his honey stash and getting the TV remote sticky. It gets his animal instincts all riled up. But he’ll have to woo her at high speed: all hell is breaking loose, and Livy is leading the charge…

***I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review*** 

Now really confused, Vic walked to the cabinets over his stainless steel refrigerator and opened one the wood doors. Opened it and stared. A naked Livy Kowalski, comfortably curled up inside his cabinet, held out an open jar and softly asked, “African honey?”

“Livy isn’t a strange thing.  She is currently however, suicidal.”

So hard, so mercilessly, that Livy started coming again. And at this rate, Livy wasn’t sure she’d ever stop.

“Okay, then. Although, you know going soft is a risk when you fall in love.” “Really? I’ve always thought of love as rage-inducing.” 

Honey Badgers are the thieves of the shifter world?  Our heroine is a badger that does not fit in with her crooked family at all.  Living as a law abiding citizen and succeeding as world famous photographer, has her family up in arms.  When her father is hunted, killed and stuffed all stops are pulled out to find out who did it!  Our hero, a shy hybrid tiger/grizzly bear cross, assists her in locating the bad guys. He may be shy, but he has the skills and contacts to get the job done! It doesn’t hurt that you have a criminal network of honey badgers that never stop and are hard to kill…
