Hot and Badgered (The Honey Badgers) - Shelly Laurenston

Mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand, it was fun to visit the NY shifters and all their zaniness. On the other...I'm not as sold on the honey badgers as well, the rest of the world seems to be. I just kinda find the whole criminal family bit...bothersome. Or is it tiresome? Because really, how many petty thieves, serial killers, and mobsters does a particular species need? And I really was unimpressed with the Kicking Dee-Ann's Ass bit. Because I like Dee-Ann.


I like the H, and his family, his neighbors, the old friends (Bo and Blayne have 3 kids? Guess she really did get his attention. Hahaha!). The prodigy jackals are a bit irritating in their self-absorbtion.


I like the h and her sisters. I just...don't care much for the criminal elements, and really don't care for the idea that suddenly all these badasses we've met in previous books are defenseless against two of the three (kinda leaving Stevie out since she's so neurotic she's more inclined to run).


Also not pleased that we have a story arc - the girls' father disappeared, as did their serial killer cousin, and twin aunts.  So you know they'll be back in the next round.
