Honey Badgers are not usually the most revered when it comes to shifters. They are generally thieves and grifters and one would be wise to watch their backs when Honey Badgers are concerned.

At least that is most Honey Badgers, then there is Livy. Since meeting her still best friend Toni as a teenager, Livy has been more interested in taking pictures, then stealing paintings. She isn't anything like her relatives—whether it be Kowalski or Lang.

Vic Barinov is a hybrid shifter. Part tiger, part bear he's big and many fear him. He is also a pretty good tracker and is doing pretty good working on his own.

Livy has found that she likes breaking into Vic's house, as only a Honey Badger can. Mostly because she can usually be alone there as Vic is often out of town, and also because he has some great honey in his cabinets.

When Vic asks Livy to do a little breaking and entry for him to find some answers about a full-human who is hunting shifters, it sets off a chain of events that sends Livy's mostly boring life into a dangerous search and into the arms of Vic. Can a Honey Badger from a dysfunctional family like Livy's ever find a mate of her own to love?

Without much of funny comeback lines that I so adore with Shelly Laurenston's work, this story was a slight disappointment in the beginning, however keep reading this is a great story filled with  exciting story line. Fans of other Pride Series books will find lots of old friends and those looking for something different will meet the crazy Honey Badgers that are completely different personalities than the other shifters from the series. I'd love to see some of these new Honey Badger characters have stories of their own.


Livy Kowalski has no time for idiots. When you shapeshift into a honey badger, getting through life's irritants is a finely honed skill. Until she gets stuck housing her nutso cousin and dealing with her dad's untimely and unexplained demise. That's where Vic Barinov comes in - or his house does. Vic can't step outside without coming back to find Livy devouring his honey stash and getting the TV remote sticky. It gets his animal instincts all riled up. But he'll have to woo her at high speed: all hell is breaking loose, and Livy is leading the charge...
