Vic is a hybrid grizzly bear/tiger that works sometimes for the Llewellyn Security Firm. & had been working with Ricky & Toni when they needed someone who knew how to deal with bears in Russia. After Russia Vic found himself liking Toni's friend Livy; & as she likes him too not only for his honey supply.
Vic asks Livy to help him on a case & she does however, she finds something going on with that case that just became personal. She found her father stuffed & mounted in the person of interest's home & after finding that out she called both sides of her family together to find the culprit.
This book has lots of fighting scenes, sex scenes, honey eating scenes & some jousting. It also had some funny parts in it. Overall this book was very good.
Livy Kowalski showed up in previous books as the best friend of Antonella and frankly, when I found out what her shifter animal was, I howled! it was so appropriate! Livy Kowalski is a honey badge, and she is badass. I love the way her character can't be bothered with any social courtesies. I liked her in previous books, but as the main character, she stole the show. There are a LOT of PNR series where I love all the men and can't stand the women (Lords of the Underworld? I finally had to stop reading the series I love because I simply couldn't take another word out of a Harpy's mouth - you know what I'm talking about).
The other thing that made this book stand out in my opinion, was the slow development of the love story. Vic Barinov was also introduced briefly in a previous book. Vic and Livy start the story as friendly acquaintances who tolerate each other's quirks. That acquaintance very slowly develops into a true friendship, and it's fun to see how surprised they are when they realize that somehow, their friendship snuck up on them. I love the way the author built their relationship one quirk and one smile at a time. Awesome. There was no insta-love, my mate, MINE! moment. In fact, they didn't even realize there was a physical attraction. That built slowly as well.
The final thing I loved about this book was the writing. Yes, the rest of the books in the series have the same feel, but as I was reading lines in this book, I kept saying - man, that's funny. I even looked up in the middle of reading and announced decidedly to my husband - this book is funny. Then looked back down and continued reading. I believe that the author has matured in her writing style because the Magnus Pack series, while decent, was definitely NOT this good.
As long as Ms. Laurenston continues to make me love both her male AND female characters, I will continue to read her books. Okay - except for Blayne. She is the WORST CHARACTER EVER. I wonder if Bo got brain damage from a flying hockey puck because I do not get what he sees in her. And Bo is AWESOME.
I only WISH WISH WISH that this publisher would stop charging an arm and a leg. Each book is going up in price. This one finally came on sale at Amazon for less than $8.99 which is my benchmark price for buying an eBook. I waited months before I would buy this book. I still REFUSE TO PAY MORE THAN $8.99 for an eBOOK! I WON'T DO IT! DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR!!!
The plot revolves around the death of Livy's father. A honey badger being murdered and stuffed leads to drama and hijinks that only the Kowalski/Yang felonious family could bring about. "A Kowalski never forgets, but a Yang never forgives." This has got to be one of the few series where you love love love the psycho's(yes young Kyle is back!!!) I commend how the author keeps all the prior cast of characters in the new stories without it ever feeling old or tired, instead it's like visiting old friends again and again.
Livy's family is also complex and interesting. Who knew that a good Honey Badger party included poisonous snakes as the entertainment and food? Shen, the bamboo addicted panda, is also a great addition. He and Vic make a good team. Now I want Shen to have a nice female who can accept the bamboo crunching.
