Bite Me by Shelly Laurenton

I asked my best friend, librarian at my local library, what to read. Her response, would you like something fun? Of course I read for entertainment. I want something that will keep my attention, I have a short attention span. Ms. Laurenton got my attention with the first act with two women fist fighting on top of a coffin, one the ex-wife the other the sister, the comment from the daughter of the deceased, (paraphrased) she figures she deserves the life insurance since she didn’t kill him herself. Bite Me is a shape-shifter, romantic suspense that is witty, intense and full of action. The characters, a honey badger who loves honey and being naked usually while eating honey and a half bear- half tiger hybrid with his own issues. They weren’t looking for love, didn’t really want it but watching this couple fall in love, fight bad guys and live full lives even if half the time they are furry, was an exciting thrill ride with hot sex and bad attitudes. I loved it and I’ve recommended it to friends.


I write suspense with a hot romance and a southern accent. I like strong characters with attitude and charm. Heroines who can rescue themselves and heroes who aren't afraid to love them.
