After Dark Review of Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Synopsis: "He's big, burly, and way smarter than your average shapeshifting bear. He's also about to get trapped by own his game. . .

Lou Crushek is a reasonable, mellow, easygoing kind of guy. But once someone starts killing the scumbags he works so hard to bust, that really gets under his fur. Especially when that someone is a curvy she-tiger with a skill set that's turning Crush's lone-bear world upside down--and bringing his passion out of hibernation. . .

As a member of an elite feline protection unit, Marcella Malone has no problem body-dropping anyone who hunts her kind. But Crush is proving one major pain in her gorgeous tail. The only reason she's joined forces with him is to track down the wealthy human who's got her entire species in his ruthless sights. It sure isn't because Crush's stubborn and contrary attitude is rubbing Cella in all the right ways. ."

My Review: Again it was difficult to place the main characters at the beginning. You start reading from the view point of a character that was maybe mentioned once in the series, and just in passing. The other main character is completely unrecognizable because she was originally portrayed as a lethal killer not a fun loving, carefree character. So I had to really put my previous experience with Cella completely out of my mind in order to enjoy the book, once I did that I really had a good time with Cella and Crush. I also enjoyed the developments in the storyline, Laurenston continued the trend set in the previous book to bring the story more to the front instead of just the characters and bedroom scenes (but don't be mistaken, those are still prominent).
My Rating: I really enjoy seeing how Laurenston has grown as an author throughout this series.  There is so much more substance to this book than there was at the beginning of the series.  I particularly enjoyed this one. I give it a rating of Four Paws.
