Breaking Badger by Shelly Laurenston
Honey Badger Chronicles #4

Fans of Thea Harrison and Nalini Singh won’t want to miss this exciting, funny, and sexy novel in the mega-popular series.

It’s instinct that drives Finn Malone to rescue a bunch of hard battling honey badgers. The Siberian tiger shifter just can’t bear to see his fellow shifters harmed. But no way can Finn have a houseful of honey badgers when he also has two brothers with no patience. Things just go from bad to worse when the badgers rudely ejected from his home turn out to be the only ones who can help him solve a family tragedy. He’s just not sure he can even get back into the badgers’ good graces. Since badgers lack graces of any kind . . .

Mads knows her teammates aren’t about to forgive the cats that were so rude to them, but moody Finn isn’t so bad. And he’s cute! The badger part of her understands Finn’s burning need to avenge his father’s death—after all, vengeance is her favorite pastime. So Mads sets about helping Finn settle his family’s score, which has its perks, since she gets to avoid her own family drama. Besides, fighting side by side with Finn is her kind of fun—especially when she can get in a hot and heavy snuggle with her very own growling, eye-rolling, and utterly irresistible kitty-cat...

I absolutely love this series! The books are over the top, zany, hilariously fun. The outlandish events are rather implausible for the sheer absurdity, and yet it more than works. I can't say just how many times I burst out loud laughing audibly to the point where my family looked at me like I was nuts. They are just that funny, and the absolute perfect pick-me-up for anyone in need of a good laugh. You could be having a terrible week, and these books will be the perfect cure. There's just something so heartwarming about this insanely dysfunction but utterly close knit rag tag group and all the hijinks they get involved with.

This time around featured Mads, one of the badgers on the basketball team. I really enjoyed getting a deeper look into the players and the dynamic of the team, especially Mads. She's just as "feral" as Max, and I loved it. Seeing the lions dance around her was nothing short of hilarious, and I really enjoyed the romance overall. 

If you're looking for a laugh out loud escape, look no further than BREAKING BADGER and the entire Honey Badger Chronicles series. Trust me, you'll want to grab this one!
