Publisher's Summary

She's the woman he's been hired to kidnap. But ZeZe Vargas has other ideas...like getting them both out of this nightmare alive. Just one problem. She's crazy. Certifiably. Because while he's plotting their escape, the petite Asian beauty is plotting something much more deadly....

Max "Kill It Again" MacKilligan has no idea what one of her own is doing with all these criminal humans until she realizes that Ze has no idea who or what he is. Or exactly how much power he truly has. 

But Max is more than happy to bring this handsome jaguar shifter into her world and show him everything he's been missing out on. A move that might be the dumbest thing she's ever done once she realizes how far her enemies will go to wipe her out. Too bad for them Ze is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her alive...and honey badgers are just so damn hard to kill!

Contains mature themes.

Loved listening to this in audible.

Loved listening to this in audible. Narrator did well and was good as there was a lot of voices to deal with but not fantastic. Just so enjoyable and quite a few laugh out loud moments that had my husband looking at me strangely. BOOK REVIEW Yes, I had some wonderful laugh out loud moments reading this, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride right till the end but I just felt it missed the mark by a small margin. There is supposed to be a romance between Max, the third sister and Zeze, a cat who didn’t know he was a cat. What we didn’t get was a romance. What happens between Ze and Max was just pitifully poor. No sparks, no heat and just no connection. That will not stop me getting the audible version though. Though I did thoroughly enjoy this story and appreciated how well everything came together in the first half, the second half, though entertaining to the end, just lacked romance and connection between Max and Ze. A twist at the end I didn’t see coming, one or two problems dealt with, unfortunately Freddie was not one of them and new characters to be written about. You really cannot appreciate this book as a standalone. There are too many pop in characters that will mean nothing, if you have not first read the Pride series to understand some of the other characters and the then the two previous books in the Honey Badger series. Read through my local library.

Max "Kill It Again" MacKilligan

I love shifter books, and I always look forward to this author's new releases. Badger to the Bone was exactly what I was expecting - fun to read and listen to, filled with crazy characters, Max...... and where there's Max violence is sure to follow. She is one tough honey badger shifter willing to dish out retribution to whoever deserves it. Or maybe just because she's in the mood and she loves messing with people's heads.

Badger to the Bone has so many secondary characters from this authors previous books - so there are a lot of characters to keep track of for someone maybe not so familiar with her other books. Having read them all, I love seeing all these characters pop up through the storyline. Overall the storyline is very light from the romance angle, but Ze' adds a lot of amusement to the storyline with his personality and mannerisms ( I love how he messes with Dutch ). Charlie is still my favourite character of the 3 sisters, but all 3 books in The Honey Badger Chronicles are really good.

Charlotte Kane, I have loved listening to her narrate books 2 & 3 of this series - I really enjoy listening to her, she performs all of the characters really well. 5/5 for her performance!!

Badgering LOL

This story is a wonderful ending to the trilogy of the unfortunate daughters of the most f*ck up Badger in history. Without giving away spoilers I can only say that there were some inconsistencies between the back story given to Max for this book that don't exactly agree with the back stories developed for the three girls in the other books in the series.
I happen to think that the changes in the back story make Max a more well rounded character so I question the need to subtract a whole star 🌟
so I really only want to subtract 1/2 a star. My reason for the 1/2 star deduction is because those times when SL was attempting to smooth away those inconsistencies in the story were not up to her normal eloquence.

Of course this storyline had unexpected plot twist that has let it be known that we were not done seeing/reading about our favorite three badger sisters in future.

I love all of Shelly's books.

Her characters are strong and they stay themselves. They make me laugh, even in public.

Don't you just love the Mckilligans

Another great read from Laurenston, I'm glad you added another sibling cause I would hate for their story to end.

The ending seemed to come out of nowhere.

I love this book and these characters but sometimes I get whiplash from the sudden scene changes, lol. Ze is so hilarious but the three guys didn't seem to serve much purpose unless they're being set up for their own stories. I'd love to see them really lose their attitudes.

Love the badgers

Heck yeah! Love me some crazy honey badgers. This is Max’s story, and it’s a great one. Funny and outrageous as all of Shelleys books are. Maybe next time we could see how the Smiths pack is doing? I believe Reed needs
a book?

Love these crazy shifters

Another great installation in the lives of the sisters. Won’t post spoilers but I hope this isn’t the last in the series.
