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. . .

~ 5 Bear Meets Girl Stars ~

Bear Meets Girl is book seven in the Pride series by Shelly Laurenston. I love the cover for this one.

Lou “Crush” Crushek, is a polar bear who is a cop. He is one sexy bear. I just love bears and reading about them. Crush is pretty laded back and likes things to not change, but his world is about to be turned upside down by one crazy she tiger.

Marcella “Bare Knuckles” Malone is a tiger who works for KZS (organization that protects shifter cats), she is also a former Marine and a pro hockey player for a shifter team. She is one bad ass chick and I just loved her. She really put Crush through some fun times.

This one was so much fun. It’s quick, light hearted, and enjoyable. I love the characters, the secondary characters, and seeing the other couples come back into play. They enjoy life, family, and protecting those that they care about. The family feel always warms my heart each time I pick up a Pride book. I also can’t forget the one liners that Ms. Laurenston is so good at doing. Malone and Crush worked as a couple, balancing each other out. It was fun to see these two together.

If you love sweet, light heart romances, and humor then the Pride series is right up your alley. I love this series and will be re-reading it over and over.

**Note: This series needs to be read in order especially if it is your first time reading it. I have stated in other reviews that you can read them as standalone. It is true, but once you have read this series before. I love this series and have read it many times, though the first time I read it was in order. I am very particular in that I prefer to read a series in order to get the full effect of the world, characters, and shorelines.

    • This series is fun and love reading it over and over. It has a way of picking me back up. It’s a series I like to fall back on when I’m in a rut or just need something light heart and funny. Hope you get a chance to pick this series up again. As far as I know it’s complete, but I would like Ms. Laurenston to write more in this one. ^_^

  2. I love the humor in this series! I need to get back to it. I think I’m 2 or 3 behind.

  3. I love this series too. I am behind and only have a few left. This one is the next one on my list. I can’t wait to hear more about “Bare Knuckles” Malone.
