Beast Behaving Badly - Shelly Laurenston Even though Blayne and her incessant hyperactivity/perkiness/chatter got on my nerves with irksome frequency, I generally found this story and the characters very enjoyable. Bo, the OCD and neurotic seven foot hockey playing polar/lion shifter hybrid who gives new meaning to "strong and silent type," was strangely appealing in his intensity and single-minded pursuit, whether it be of Blayne or the hockey championship. I liked him a lot, and I'd say 3.5-4 overall.

I'm surprised to say I am somewhat less eager to dive into Ric and Dee Ann's story after reading about Dee Ann's hard-assedness in this book. Hopefully she will be a more sympathetic and relatable character than as portrayed here.
