Bears Behaving Badly by MaryJanice Davidson
Bear shifter David Auberon appreciates Annette's work with at-risk teen shifters, but he's not sure if her latest charge is so much a vulnerable teen as a predator who should be locked up. All that changes when he, Annette, and her motley band of juveniles find themselves dodging multiple murder attempts and uncovering a trafficking cartel that doesn't just threaten the kids but risks discovery of the shifters by the wider world of homo sapiens.
It's been a while since I've read a book by MaryJanice Davidson. When I saw this I knew I had to give it a try. Those of you who follow me regularly know how much I love me a bear shifters. So in my mind, I had to try this one.
It turns out that there was much of this book that I really enjoyed. I liked the humor even though at times I felt it was a little forced. Enjoyable just a bit too far.
The sad thing is that this book starts off very rough. I felt like I was thrown into something and I was the only person that wasn't getting it. It did level off and I started feeling the flow of the book and was enjoying it. I just wished that lasted.
I did really enjoy the characters and the whole idea of the story. I think what got to me was the writing. I felt it was like she used to write, just not well. I think part of the issue is with the hero and heroine. The author makes it where they fight their attraction but I think it went too long. It makes for funny moments and some tense once but you don't see their growth as a couple enough. Sometimes I felt like I wasn't reading a romance.
Then something would happen that I really liked and it pulled me back in.
As a whole, this is an okay book. I didn't love it but it wasn't all bad either. I might try to read it again in a few weeks when it's out of my mind. Have any of you read her before?
