Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston

Paranormal Romance

From Goodreads:

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.

This on has been on my wish list for quite awhile so when it appeared on Netgalley I quickly put in a request.  It sounded like a fun book and it is.  Be warned though.  It does contain a lot of foul language and physical violence.  It did not turn me off.  The violence was a character trait of the difference shifters and the language matched the situation.  Both Bear (Lou Crushek) and Girl (Marcella Malone) are interesting characters who are opposites in many ways.  It turns out that makes the perfect for each other.  Of course that does not become apparent at once.  It takes the interference of her family and a very dangerous situtation to finally bring them together. 

This is part of the Pride series and is book 7.  It does stand along but I often knew I was missing the background on some of the secondary characters.  I think it would have enjoyed parts of the book more if I had know that background.

Brava published Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston in 2012.

I received an ARC of Bear Meets Girls from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
