Hot and Badgered (Honey Badger Chronicles, #1) by Shelly Laurenston

Hot and Badgered (Honey Badger Chronicles, #1)

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.   Honey badgers are sur...

  • Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

    This was only a sneak peak....the first chapter from Netgalley, but that first chapter has me wanting more! It was so good, and I'm hooked. I loved Bite Me from Shelly Laurenston's Pride series. I fell in love with her awesome Honey badger shifters. So finding out she was writing more honey badger goodness got me so excited. I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

    I'm gonna admit something. I thought this was a porny honey badger book when I got it. 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 ...

    4 Stars!Hot and Badgered is the first book in author Shelly Larenston's newest series entitled Honey Badger Chronicles. We are introduced to the MacKilligan sisters and from the start there is no doubt that we are in for a fun ride when it comes to this trio.This book deals with the story of Charlie MacKilligan, the eldest sister. She is the one who always steps in and takes care of things, particularly due to their sorry excuse for a father. Cha...

    Funny and weird. This book reminded me of the "Call of Crows" series by this author. It has the same hilarious and frenetic storyline. There isn't an ounce of down-time, just crazy hijinx constantly. The jokes never stop either. Along with the killing and bloodthirstiness. "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 S...

    If I could give this 10 stars, I would! I absolutely loved this book. I don't think I have laughed so hard as I did with these characters. As crazy as the antics these ladies got themselves into, I never felt like the humor was too much. Yes, it was silly but in the best way possible. There are so many quotes I would love to display in my review but then I would be copying pretty much the whole book. Shelly Laurenston is my kind of humor! Hot and...

    I’ve been a fan of Shelly Laurenston’s work for years now. But when I found out that she decided to end her popular Pride Series I was crushed. After nine books of fun, over the top characters, hilarious laugh out loud moments – I felt bereft and if I’m honest I was in denial. So, when I found out she was releasing a new series, I was all over it. Color me surprised and absolutely in love, when I realized that her new book Hot and Badgere...

    They’re all crazy...in a psychotic but funny way.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 as...

    4 Honey Badgers are bloody brilliant Stars!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 ...

    Just got the first chapter, but I am completely and totally hooked. Berg, the marvelous grizzly, is body guard to Cooper, the pianist prodigy character that we previously adored. AND IT HAS HONEY BADGERS, quirky, quick and completely cute these viciously hilarious characters are going to make for some fantastic break from reality book time!I received chapter 1 ONLY ARC copy of Hot and Badgered from Kensington Books. This is my honest and voluntar...

    4.5 starsCharlie 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, ...

    RTC=====So I opened the book to this “Berg just closed his eyes and came out with it, “I love you and I want you to stay.”Charlie let out an annoyed sigh. “Well . . . that’s all on you.”Eyes snapping open, Berg demanded, “What the hell does that mean? You don’t love me?”“Of course I love you.” She glared at him and added, “Idiot. But I’m just saying, if you’ve chosen to fall in love with a MacKilligan, after everything...

    Hot and Badgered is the first in a brand new series and it was so much fun to read. I love the silly snarky humor, crazy characters, and laugh out loud moments. This book is a wild ride from start to finish with people trying to kill Charlie and her sisters, a father who’s pretty much the black sheep of the family, and larger then life characters. If your not familiar with Laurenston and her Pride series, well that’s ok, you can still have f...

    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 definitel...

    I’m Shelly Laurenston’s fan!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 ...

    I finally got my grabby hands on the full length version of this book ! Having previously read the first chapter tease that the publisher released I was extremely keen to know just what was planned next for the honey badgers in this book. We meet three sisters who are all so very different and yet believe me when it comes to protecting their little family they will do absolutely anything. I've long been a fan of the authors dragon shifter books a...

    FULL REVIEWCharlie 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 ...

    I prolly had high expectations from SL and they were not met in this book.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 romancedefinitely not my fave in her Pride world.

    Really funny read (listen)! I enjoyed the narrator a lot. This one was looooowww on the romance, but the story was funny and entertaining.

    Please note that this is my first Laurenston ever, so I am not familiar with her voice or how she writes. However, I genuinely cannot remember the last time I have so much FUN reading a book that features CRAZY characters, unlike I usually encounter. Because that's what this book is.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 thei...

    Well the new series based on the Honey Badgers is here and it was like reading a cross between Dragonkin and Pride series (since you will see several characters from that series in this book).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 ...

    I had a laugh-out-loud, super fun time reading this book. It was a crazy storyline in the best way possible. 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...

    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 ...

    Berg Dunn is a great at his job, in the personal protection agency his family runs, a family of grizzly shifters. While protecting a world renowned child prodigy, pianist, and shifter a naked woman lands on their hotel balcony. That is nothing new with woman throwing themselves at his charge but what is new is she is a shifter and being chased by a bunch of human assassins.Honey badgers are a class unto themselves, fearless and ready to take on t...

    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 o...

    ***ARC received for an honest review***"'Sociopath is in the eye of the---''---forensic psychologist working for the prosecution?'"Right book. Right time. Life has kicked my butt this week - work and family and stress. And in the midst of a messy house and 12 hour days I found a book that made me love everything about it.There's a lot of world-building here. And enough characters that it should be obnoxious and confusing. Laurenston made it work....

    I almost didn't get this. I was not thrilled at all with Wolf With Benefits because I did not like the heroine Toni or her family. And I didn't read Bite Me at all because it starred Livy and i wasn't a huge fan of hers either.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 differ...

    Any time Shelly Laurenston puts out a new book I'm immediately excited for it, but this one I was even more excited then usual because this is a whole series about Honey Badgers!! My favourite characters from the other books are the Honey Badgers, they are completely batshit crazy and hilarious. And I could read 100 books about them. This series starts with Charlie, who's the oldest of 3 honey badger sisters, and Berg a 1000 pound grizzle shifter...

    I have a shelf totally devoted to Shelly Laurenston's books title psycho female, because that is the kind of women she writes. And I love it. Her characters are crazy, over-the-top, and intense. Although I've come to realize her stories don't strike me as romance. I know who will get together because they are the two main characters, but there is rarely a spark between the two of them, no sexual tension, yet I'm fine with that. Her stories enthra...
