Wolf with Benefits: Pride Series, Book 8 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
There's nothing like a good-ol'-boy wolf. And ace security expert Ricky Lee Reed serves, protects, and seduces with all the right moves.... Sure, Toni Jean-Louis Parker has to be the responsible oldest sister to a crazy-brilliant clan of jackal siblings. But now she's cutting loose for some hot, sweaty, no-commitments fun - and the sexy, slow-talking, swift-moving predator assigned to keep her family safe is just the right thing to shapeshift her love life into overdrive. Trouble is, he's starting to get all obsessive wolf on her every time he looks in her direction.
Getting serious about anyone isn't in Ricky Lee Reed's plans. Hell, even now he doesn't really have a plan - outside of catching whomever is threatening this dangerously brilliant family. But the more he sees of Toni, the more he's howling for her. And whatever it takes to convince her that what they have is everything, well, this wily wolf is down for the sizzling chase.

She gets a job with a pro hockey team as sort of a problem solver and travel and public relations coordinator. When she has to go on a trip, Bo (the OCD Polar Bear Lion hybrid) and Blayne (the chatty and lovable wolf-dog) step in to organize the family while she's away. Even more hilarity ensues.
This book is fun from beginning to end.
My favorites so far have been the MANE EVENT ; BEAST BEHAVING BADLY & BIG BAD BEAST ( which caused me to laugh out loud many times). Ricky just seems to "float" along w/Toni w/out a real purpose for most of the book.... she seemed attracted to him mostly because he was just there!
I think the PRIDE SERIES still has many good stories left in it.... maybe Laurenston should take a break until she has her creative mojo back.... the prides, clans & packs deserve better. Personally..... I just love the pride w/their obsession w/eating & their hair/mane!!!
Toni, has been taking care of her siblings who are all prodigies & there are 10 of them; but now it's her time to shine & shine she did.
Ricky Lee Reed is calm as entertainment will come to him no matter what & when he 1st meets Toni he is very entertained. He has been following her around from the 1st time that they met & then became her friend, her bodyguard, her lover & then the love of her life.
With all of the things thrown at them this was a very good book; it also had some funny parts. & I really enjoyed Bo's parts in this book because it showed some caring tendencies about him. I also enjoyed seeing Irene & Miki in this book & I think that this is an excellent series as soon if not now that all of the characters in the previous books will all soon be related to each other by marriage/mating.

As for the characters, the only two who seem not to be either one dimensional or badly written caricatures are Toni and her friend Livy. Even the main make character comes off as a stalker who's seduction technique seems to be stalk the girl until she inexplicably falls into bed with him.
There are way better shifter romances out there, go find them and leave this book where it belongs. In the unread pile.
The summer in which the book is set has the clan arrive in New York and renting a house across the road from the Wild Dog pack. Jackie Jean-Louis Parker wants to mentor Johnny, the adopted son of the wild dog alpha female. Through Jackie’s machinations gain this mentorship Toni keeps bumping into Ricky Lee Reed a wolf shifter from Tennessee, who works as security and protection in the shifter world. Ricky Lee instantly finds Toni and her family fascinating and goes about trying to gain her interest.
I love that this book is about Toni finding her way apart from her family and that Ricky Lee does his best to help. However, he does not want to separate her from her family and really does like them and her devotion to them. He just wants her to have her own life too.
There is actually quite a lot of plot in this book to keep you interested and as always there is tonnes of banter. I love all the characters in this book, just like I knew from the glimpses I’d seen in the Honey Badger books. I’m glad I got a chance to find out more about them.
Toni's family annoyed me, except Freddie and Dennie and the older two but the rest... oy!
Ricky and Toni's romance wasn't forced and flowed well, loved it.
I'm glad one of the Reed boys got some loving, although I was hoping Rory would get a book too. (I'm rooting for you!)
The plot was well written too and flowed well.
If you're new definitely read the other pride series books first as this one is one of the last. Everything will make more sense that way. Also check out the Magnus trilogy which is the trilogy that started this shifter journey.
On the plus side: I loved Antonella J-L Parker. Her efforts for her crazy family made me smile. On the minus side: there was a lack of some of the action we have seen in earlier stories. Additionally, I did not feel the chemistry between Toni & Reece at all. The book did leave me wanting more though. What will happen to all the wonderful 'new' characters we have been introduced to: such as Livvy, the strange but interesting photographer (funny & scary at the same time). Then there is Vic Barinov, the Russian Bear/ Tiger hybrid.
The story gets 3 1/2 stars from me, not because it average, but because for the first time I was reading a Laurenston book that felt like a 'filler': a book written to fill in the gap between the next important book. All the previous books in the Pride series get 4,or 5, stars from me.
compared to other books in this series this one was perhaps slightly more sedate,but nevertheless still a great read.as always laurenston's characterization was brilliant,with so many diverse and colourful characters within the story.
if your looking for an in-depth intricate shifter novel,this probably wont be for you.however,if your looking for a lighter paranormal romantic read, with diverse characters and a huge dose of humour, then this book could be right up your street!
