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. . .

Plot all but vanishes behind character interaction and romantic comedy in Laurenston’s seventh Pride paranormal, following 2011’s Big Bad Beast. Lou “Crush” Crushek —were–polar bear and undercover cop—wakes up after a wild party to find Cella “Bare Knuckles” Malone—were-tiger and infamous hockey player—in his bed. Sparks fly as personalities clash, but initial irritation turns into tentative friendship. Soon, Lou’s acting as Cella’s not-so-pretend boyfriend, to the amusement of their friends and families. Their inevitable romantic pairing is only somewhat slowed by side stories involving Lou’s evil foster mother and other threats to New York’s shifter community. The real focus is on the sprawling cast of shifters and their complex social dynamics. Quirky characters, madcap antics, snappy dialogue, charged love scenes, and sitcomesque humor keep things moving at a breakneck pace. Agent: Ethan Ellenberg, Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency. (Apr.)
