50 words or less: Bitchin' ain't easy, as Angelina Santiago well knows. So when she wakes up in North Carolina having previously been in Texas, wearing a sheet, and getting looks from a tiger shifter who's way too good looking for his own good, she figures it's nothing she can't handle. Oops.
The Magnus Pack series rolls on with this third installment that features the third member of the terrible threesome, Sara and Miki having found their happily ever afters in the first two books. I was extra happy to see the setting and cast of characters in the book widen, as Angelina is kind of a larger than life character, which in the context of these books is really saying something.
Nikolai Vorislav isn't thinking about forever when he meets Angelina Santiago; in fact, he tries to avoid thinking about forever in any capacity. Tiger shifters aren't supposed to mate for life; they're supposed to have a whole bunch of kids with other tiger shifters and get the heck on with it, his dad being the one notable exception to that idea. Nope, Nik thinks that Angelina is a hottie McHotPants and that that's all there is to it. When his brothers decide that bringing Angelina to Nik's house without asking her first is a good idea, he figures he'll just keep an eye on her until the folks at the Magnus Pack can come get her. It sounds simple, but from the moment Angelina's eyes open at Nik's house he's is immediately relieved of that delusion.
Angelina does not take crap from anybody, thank you very much. She's immediately drawn to Nik and his miscellaneous charms but he definitely has to work for her affections. However, once she's decided to give those affections, she gives them completely and without reservation, which is nice. She adapts well to his crazy family (the family dinner scene and the part with the One Eyed Grandma were hilarious. Seriously- One Eyed Grandma.) and doesn't mind that his brothers are nosy and enjoy yanking Nik's chain. Her loyalty to her friends never wavers but she understands that she can be best friends with Sara and Miki and have her own life too.
This book, and every other book in the series for that matter, gets a Scandalous Books mention, just because the potty mouth is present to an almost comical extreme- seriously, if four letter words bother you then you might want to miss out on the rest of the awesomeness of this book, because they are there in force. Likewise this book doesn't shy away from adult content and if that's something that you don't care for, again, it's here in force.
If those elements are fine by you though, and you're looking for a book that will make you laugh-loudly-, then I definitely recommend this one and the two others before it as well.
Overall Grade: A
