Breaking Badger (Book 4 of the Honey Badger Chronicles) by Shelly Laurenston

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It’s instinct that drives Finn Malone to rescue a bunch of hard battling honey badgers. The Siberian tiger shifter just can’t bear to see his fellow shifters harmed. But no way can Finn have a houseful of honey badgers when he also has two brothers with no patience. Things just go from bad to worse when the badgers rudely ejected from his home turn out to be the only ones who can help him solve a family tragedy. He’s just not sure he can even get back into the badgers’ good graces. Since badgers lack graces of any kind . . .
Mads knows her teammates aren’t about to forgive the cats that were so rude to them, but moody Finn isn’t so bad. And he’s cute! The badger part of her understands Finn’s burning need to avenge his father’s death—after all, vengeance is her favorite pastime. So Mads sets about helping Finn settle his family’s score, which has its perks, since she gets to avoid her own family drama. Besides, fighting side by side with Finn is her kind of fun—especially when she can get in a hot and heavy snuggle with her very own growling, eye-rolling, and utterly irresistible kitty-cat . . .

My Review

I received a paperback copy of this book from a Goodreads giveaway and was delighted to give it a try.

So this story is a little different. I don’t know much about honey badgers, but the way they are characterized here makes me glad they don’t live where I do. Anyway, this story centers on a group of lady honey badgers and their kick ass antics.It’s listed as “A Hilarious Shifter Romance” and it is hilarious. I laughed out loud several times and decided to have a lazy reading day so I could read most of it in a sitting.

There are a lot of POV characters to start so it was a little hard figuring out who was who. Once I got the hang of them though, it was fine and I had no trouble keeping up. This book is technically a romance but that is not the biggest part of it. I mean, it happens: boy meets girl, they snappily get to know each other as only two of the crankiest species on the planet can, they slowly fall in love, have their moment and keep right on going with the rest of the story. I would classify this more of an action / adventure with some romantic elements than a straight up romance.

The characters are pretty well drawn and I enjoyed their violently carefree method of dealing with things. They are so hard to kill that I wonder why anyone tries. It’s a testament of how much the bad guys hate these chicks that they are willing to put so much effort into it. 

I really enjoyed this book and have started reading book 1 so I can catch up. It is for mature audiences both for romantic scenes and graphic violence. Highly recommend! You can purchase this book from Amazon.
