Shelly Laurenston’s spicy and elaborate shape-shifter novels featuring the ultimate alpha males and mounting danger really burn up the pages. Laurenston’s prior novel, The Mane Squeeze, brought a curious grouping of shape-shifters into focus, with one its two primary storylines being about hybrid shifters kidnapped for human fighting rings. Beast Behaving Badly continues the story with hybrid wolf-dog Blayne Thorpe at the center of all the excitement.

Professional hybrid hockey has never had a more vicious or more loved player than polar-lion Bo Novikov. Blayne Thorpe, a much smaller hybrid wolf-dog, however, can take him down with a single a blow — a sure sign that there's more to this little woman than meets the eye. When the two are attacked nearly fatally, it is obvious that the humans have targeted Blayne for their next ring-fighting contestant. Luckily for all, Bo’s uncle is prior Unit (the most feared of all shifters). In his territory, Blayne not only feels safer than ever before - she actually is.

Bear country. If you’re not a bear, you’re not welcome. Blayne, however, has that mirthful spark about her that makes everyone around her like her whether they want to or not. After a few days in bear country, she’s been fully accepted, and everyone even goes out of their way to make sure she’s happy. But despite the fun days and passionate nights Blayne enjoys with Bo and his townsfolk, danger lurks much closer than expected.

A growing number of mauled homeless dogs are finding their way to Blayne and raising warning signs. Bear country is safe, but what lies beyond its well-guarded borders? After sniffing out their trail, she discovers where the dogs are coming from, but it may be too late. She may have just walked right into the den of the enemy and out of Bo’s life forever.

The second novel in Laurenston’s burgeoning series, Beast Behaving Badly has high standards to meet after those set by its predecessor, The Mane Squeeze. Laurenston incorporates steamy romances into her novels in addition to well-developed external plots. Action and drama are at the forefront throughout the storyline, while the romance is built up more gradually. The unique and genuinely delightful characters make the story all the more inviting. Beast Behaving Badly is the perfect book to lose oneself in for a night of laughs, action, passion and compassion.
