The one thing you're guaranteed to get with any Shelly Laurenston book is a ton of humor centered around many different character interactions. I look forward to revisiting all the series characters with any new book as well as getting to know how our new leads will fit into this crazy world. BEAR MEETS GIRL gives us Cella Malone, a psycho, aggressive, playful at times, feline whose great loves in life are her daughter, her position as enforcer on the hockey team and her job. In that order. And her man is a polar bear shifter, Lou Crushek (Crush), who is just the sweetest bear you'd ever want to know. He hates change and the book opens with Crush hung over after drowning his sorrows in a tray of jello shots, as he frets about his new job transfer that will now partner him up with Dez and her police force. He's a guy who likes his nice, quiet, simple life. He comes home to a quiet house, with his foster dog and just is. Until Cella sets her claws on him and turns this bear's life upside down.

The suspense storyline takes a backseat to all the character interactions, but I love it that way. Although, this particular suspense plot involves Crush's foster mom, and her need to stop Crush from finding out a truth that could and will ruin her. In order to get him off her back, she orders a distraction that impacts Cella and her future. In that sense, the suspense portion plays a big role in the direction Cella's life is going to take at book's end.

What I always look forward to most about this series are the characters and their insane personalities. Every single person is different, and I love the mix that Laurenston always gives us.

OK! I pre-ordered this book and read it almost as soon as it downloaded to my Kindle. From 11:30 p.m. until 7 a.m., I was stuck to this book like glue... except for bathroom and food breaks... and below are the reasons I gave it 4 stars (novel length, about 407 pages [e-book], 5723 marked locations, Table of Contents included):

1.) I actually would like to give it 3.5 stars instead of 4 stars... I liked it, but it was not as funny or engaging as other Pack/Pride books by Shelly Laurenston. The intimate encounters between Lou "Crush" Crushek and Marcella "Bare Knuckles" Malone are pretty hot, but not as romantic or emotionally engaging as in previous books. The story line intros a shifter "group" seemingly from no where, and although this is much more of an ensemble cast of characters, details of each character -- except Crush and Cella -- are slim... you will have to read other Pack/Pride books for their details. Cella's family is pretty detailed, but Crush's family is only moderately touched on. Crush's character also starts out with another nickname: Lou "By The Book" Crushek, but by the middle of the novel, he's pretty much given up his moral high ground. Not even sure why, other than something to do with shifters versus humans and Crush starting out as a under-cover vice cop for the NYPD (human division). Oh, and his foster mother is a crazy bear shifter with her fingers in a lot of illegal honey pots, and Crush enjoyed being on the good side of law which drove her even more crazy. The only other detail you'll find is that Crush has two brothers... but I don't want to spoil that surprise, which is a little bit of a funny read.

Well I have to say after waiting and waiting with bated breath for the next Shelly Laurenston book I was a bit disappointed :( The charcters just didn't have the chemistry, they weren't even in the same place for half the book and the humor I just love from Laurenston just wasn't there either. Oh well I think I will go back and re read the earlier books so I can remember why she is one of my favourite authors.

I really wanted to love Cella and Lou, but ultimately couldn't really connect with them. They just didn't have the right chemistry and all I really walked away thinking about Cella is that she's insane. Not that she has any reason for the insanity or even connecting with her insanity in that way that Shelly writes that makes me love her her insane characters. Sadly, that didn't happen in this book. So I've gotta deduct two stars: one for the romance and one for the main characters.

Overall the book was only fun because of the supporting characters. I really liked that Lou and Bo became friends and that was the highlight of this book for me. And though this book was lacking a lot of the humorous scenes that make Shelly's books so much fun to read, it did have one fabulous scene where Blayne is talking to Lou about how he feels about Bo and she want to make sure that the miracle of someone liking Bo has really happened so she's interrogating Lou and she asks: Do "you ever want to stab him in the face or set him on fire or go back in time and destroy the origin of his bloodline?" Classic.
