In a Badger Way (Honey Badger Chronicles #2) -  Shelly Laurenston

I really love this author. I haven't read a book by her that wasn't good. I love how her books make me laugh. I especially like her characters, each and every one of them are crazy hilarious in their own unique way. There shifter breed greatly influences how their human side acts.


This one features a giant panda bear, Shen, and a honey badger/tiger hybrid, Jenny.


Jenny is a genius, this helps to contribute to her being very socially awkward. She has super anxiety, especially confronted with bears in anyway, but not pandas. She can't control her freakishly large, extremely strong animal form. Her sisters keep her close in order to stop her from destroying the world and try to shelter her from everything acting as a buffer between her and real life. Shen is an extremely patient man. He loves bamboo, has a lot of friends, and is typically levelheaded no matter what situation he finds himself in. He somehow finds himself in the position of being Jenny's protector.


At first I didn't like the idea of the the two of them being a match. I really wanted Jenny to end up with one of the bears that terrified in the begining of the book. I am happy to say that by the middle of the book I was rooting for Shen.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a light romance that will have them laughing out loud. I do recommend tat you start from the beginning where thus world that the books is set in began, The Magnus Pack series, but starting with the first book in the Pride series works almost as well.
