Bear Meets Girl, Shelly Laurenston


He's big, burly, and way smarter than your average shapeshifting bear. He's also about to get trapped by own his game. . .
Lou Crushek is a reasonable, mellow, easygoing kind of guy. But once someone starts killing the scumbags he works so hard to bust, that really gets under his fur. Especially when that someone is a curvy she-tiger with a skill set that's turning Crush's lone-bear world upside down--and bringing his passion out of hibernation. . .
As a member of an elite feline protection unit, Marcella Malone has no problem body-dropping anyone who hunts her kind. But Crush is proving one major pain in her gorgeous tail. The only reason she's joined forces with him is to track down the wealthy human who's got her entire species in his ruthless sights. It sure isn't because Crush's stubborn and contrary attitude is rubbing Cella in all the right ways. . .
I always try to review and rate a book within its  type - it is not possible for me to compare books such as this with, for example, a huge classic like Crime and Punishment. Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong - it's still my right to do it, I will review my guilty pleasures any way I want. :D

This is a fun, spicy, well paced book that made me laugh, as Shelly Laurenston always does. The characters are great, unique and absolutely insane, especially the women. They fight, they swear, they have sex, they fight again. They're fierce.
Many dialogues and situações are crazy. Period.
The world building (realistic and at the same impossible, because these are shifters) is soo much fun. There's family, there's love, there's sex, there's violence... a lot of violence, these are predators. Funny violence. A really good guilty pleasure.
Em Português:
Tento sempre apreciar os livros dentro do seu tipo, porque não posso comparar um livro como este com um clássico importante, como Crime e Castigo. Posso estar certa ou errada - mas estou no meu direito , e vou opinar sobre os meus guilty pleasures como quiser.
Este é um livro divertido, picante e com ritmo, que me fez rir, como acontece sempre com Shelly Laurenston. As personagens são fantásticas, únicas e completamente doidas, em especial as mulheres. Lutam, praguejam, fazem sexo, lutam outra vez. São ferozes.
Muitos diálogos e situações são loucos. Ponto final.
O mundo que Shelly criou, realista e ao mesmo tempo impossivel, por se trata de shifters, é ultra-divertido. Há família, amor, sexo, violência... muita violência, são predadores. Violência divertida. Um belo guilty pleasure.
Sim, definitivamente um guilty pleasure.
