Review: Breaking Badger by Shelly Laurenston

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 have to admit I was a little nervous to read Breaking Badger. I was so worried that it wouldn't live up to the prior books in the series. I love the MacKilligan sisters and wasn't sure how I'd feel about a book that wasn't all about them. I guess I should say all about them and the characters we've come to love so much from the prior books in the series. 

Well, guess what? I loved it!!! That is right, I couldn't put it down once I started it and when I finished it all I thought about was reading it again. I love when that happens.

The good news is that there are enough of the sisters to keep this book fun. Add in the Malone brothers and you have a recipe for laughter. 

I just love Finn and Mads together. It's almost like they don't know they should be together. Their love affair isn't some big deal, it kinda just happens. I really liked that about them. They just worked so well together that they just became a couple. 

This is a great story that will pull you in and at times make you laugh with both happiness and shock. Some of the stuff that happens in this book is crazy. Sigh, I really want to read it again. Maybe the whole series in order. 

You'll love learning more about Mads and her teammates. Laurenston gives you enough about them to leave you wanting more. You'll also learn more about the Malone's and why they are the way they are. 

So much happens in this story and even though you'll love it you will kinda miss so many characters we didn't see in this story like Max's best friend. I'm hoping he shows up sometime in this series again.

After reading Breaking Badger I want more of the teammates and the Malone's. I can't wait for the next one and sadly this one doesn't come out till tomorrow. It's going to be a long year. Are any of you reading this series? And if that's a no, then why the hell not!


  1. Great Review. I am so happy to see that it lived up to your expectations of it.
