Badger to the Bone

Kensington. (Honey Badger Chronicles, Bk. 3). Mar. 2020. 400p. ISBN 9781496714404. pap. $15.95. PARANORMAL ROMANCE
Zé Vargas was undercover with a group of kidnappers; the last thing he expected was for their target to come to them. But that was before he met Max MacKilligan. Now he’s caught up in a world he never knew existed. Max insists that she’s actually a shapeshifter—a honey badger shapeshifter—and that he can shift into some kind of jungle cat. She’s definitely crazy. Except that she’s right. Now Zé is trying to figure out who—and what—he really is, all while helping protect Max from the people who are trying to kill her. It would be nice if there weren’t so many of them. Lucky for him, and Max, honey badgers are hard to kill.
VERDICT Although the writing is uneven and new series readers may find it hard to keep track of all the characters, the dialog is funny and the story is enjoyable once readers let themselves go along for the ride. This book will appeal to fans of Laurenston’s (Hot and Badgered) earlier work. Purchase where the author or other shifter romances are popular.
