Title: Bear Meets Girl
Author: Shelly Laurenston
Series: Pride #7
Lou Crushek is a bear who hates change. Unfortunately, he is being transferred to the Group’s law enforcement unit which includes a crazy she-tiger who won’t leave him alone.
Lou and Cella’s relationship starts as a fake relationship to get her family off her back. As with most fake relationships, it leads to feelings and to a true relationship. While I liked both Lou and Cella, I found their relationship a little flat. I think this is because they didn’t really spend a lot of time together outside of work or sex. I did really like how adorable Lou was, especially when it came to his “foster” dog.
The thing I liked most about this book though was the relationship between Cella, Dee-Ann, and Desiree. Those three women are crazy and make a great team, when they aren’t beating the crap out of each other. I also enjoyed that Laurenston did not make Cella’s daughter into a copy of her. She was different from her mother and was a great character in the small scenes she was in. Overall, this was a good book but not one of my favorites in this series.
