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…


Bite Me is Shelly Laurenston’s ninth installment in her Pride series.  Bite Me focuses on Livy Kowalski, a honey badger shifter and Vic Barinov, a bear/tiger hybrid shifter.  Although this is the ninth book in the series, this is the first book I have read and I am confident in saying that it worked as a stand alone.  Although…now I do want to immerse myself in this fantastic world by laying in bed all day and starting with book #1.

Bite Me is just what my freaky nerd self was craving.  Liv is balls to the wall and I think after reading this my spirit animal might be a honey badger.  😉  Liv’s quick mouth and wit work compliment her artistic side in a brilliant way.   I caught myself bursting out laughing on more than one occasion and Bite Me was just what I needed to get out of my little reading slump!

The chemistry between Liv and Vic had a unique feel to it.  It was not the normal flow you see in romance with some great evil conflict in the way of their Happily Ever After.  THANK FREAKING GAWD.  I am sorry, but really?  Does the conflict always have to be some divine conflict to keep two people apart?  Well, obviously not because Laurentston did a great love story with an awesome back story without this trope – and it was hot as hell.  THANK YOU.

Although I have not read any of the previous book in this series, I didn’t feel lost.  There is a huge amount of characters in the book that I could certainly feel had their own stories, but Laurenston does a great job keeping you informed without being overwhelmed.

I rate Bite Me (Pride #9) By Shelly Laurenston 5 out of 5 Bullets!
