Beast behaving Badly- Shelly Laurenston (book 5)

Ten years after Blayne Thorpe first encountered Bo Novikov, she still can't get the smooth-talking shifter out of her head. Now he's shadowing her in New York-all seven-plus feet of him-determined to protect her from stalkers who want to use her in shifter dogfights. Even if he has to drag her off to an isolated Maine town where the only neighbors are other bears almost as crazy as he is...
Let sleeping dogs lie. Bo knows it's good advice, but he can't leave Blayne be. Blame it on her sweet sexiness -- or his hunch that there's more to this little wolfdog than meets the eye. Blayne has depths he hasn't yet begun to fathom -- much as he'd like to. She may insist Bo's nothing but a pain in her delectable behind, but polar bears have patience in spades. Soon she'll realize how good they can be together. And when she does, animal instinct tells him it'll be worth the wait...
Ok first I have to get this out of the way- stupid cover!! Yeah the guy is big and tall like Bo in the book but that is where it ends- and Yes I am discussing the cover before I get into what I thought about the book- stupid cover... umm Blayne the lead female is black, does that chick look black to you??? NO, me either. I want my covers to look somewhat like the characters in the book.... Steps down from her soap box
Ok loved the book in some aspects and not so much others. Blayne is funny and goofy which makes you kinda love her no matter what she says or does. She talks and talks and talks oh and she cries too, big puppy dog eyes leaking everywhere! Ten years before when Bo first spotted her on the other side of the glass he was a goner, lol not so much for Blayne. She screamed and took off running. Blayne is a wolf-dog, which is a hybrid wolf and wild dog mix. Bo is also a hybrid but he is a bear-cat, polar bear and lion mix. I loved the fact that he was a hockey player and a polar bear- haha too funny. Blayne is one who wears a watch but it is a broken watch and she's not much on being on time or being orderly and Bo is just the opposite, he lives by his watch and his schedule. I think he is OCD and that just makes him funnier to me. He is the meanest player on the ice and actually not the nicest person off the ice until Blayne shows him how to live and to be loved. The characters from the other books are of course in this one and Lock along with Ric are on the hockey team with Bo, they also get a huge thrill out of messing with his locker and rearranging the contents of the locker. I have to say that I really enjoyed this book but he is still not my favorite bear but he comes in a really close second.
My Rating: 4.5


  1. I was thinking last night that I really didn't say much about the story in my review so I thought I would add a comment.. In the previous book they discovered that someone was kidnapping hybrids and using them in pit fights. The Group is a private military-like organization that is made up of shifters and the asked Dee Ann, she-wolf to watch Blayne, who they are using as bait without her knowledge. Blayne and Bo are attacked and Blayne is taken, with a little help from Bo she escapes and they end up in Maine, in Bo's home town that is full of bear shifters. They find out that someone has put a tracking device in Blayne and the Group has to explain everything to her. While in Maine, Bo and Blayne get busy lol, so much more to the story so read it!!

  2. Michael Vick in this book?
