GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Big Bad Beast by Shelly Laurenston

Description

When it comes to following her instincts, former Marine Dee-Ann Smith never holds back. And this deadly member of a shifter protection group will do anything to prove one of her own kind is having hybrids captured for dogfights. Trouble is, her too-cute rich-boy boss Ric Van Holtz insists on helping out. And his crazy-like-a-fox smarts and charming persistence are making it real hard for Dee to keep her heart safe...Ric can't believe his luck. He's wanted this fiercely independent she-wolf from day one, but he never expected teamwork as explosive as this. And now is his last chance to show Dee what she needs isn't some in-your-face Alpha male - but a wily, resourceful wolf who'll always have her back in a fight...and between the sheets.

MY THOUGHTS
REALLY LIKED IT

This is such a fun and sexy read that is perfect for the beach.  It is part of a series, but it can easily stand alone.  I have read some of the previous books and had no problem catching up with this one.  Dee Ann is part of shift protection group that protect their own and when their own are being captured for dog fights (well, with weres) the fur flies.  And yes, there is snark, oh my is there snark!  Dee Ann always has kept her heart safe, but now she is having problems with Ric, who she has known for years and avoided just as long.  There is a lot of heat and action in this one.
