Publisher's Summary

Neecy Lawrence, winged warrior for a Viking goddess and second-in-command of the fierce Crows, doesn't know what to do with a nice guy. As it is, making up for a past she'd sooner forget leaves her barely polite most days. But Raven leader and loyal Odin warrior, Will Yager, isn't just nice. He's gorgeous, hot, and a distraction she simply can't afford.

Yager has wanted Neecy in his life - and in his bed - for a long time. Not just for a night, but forever. And, like any self-respecting Viking, he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants. So what if she's the most difficult, complex, never-gives-him-a-break woman he's ever known? She's more than worth the effort. In fact, she's worth everything.

And if it turns out that 24 hours of non-stop, any-way-she-wants-it sex doesn't work with Neecy? Then it looks like he'll just have to get a little more creative.

What the Critics Say

"The hilarity and the laughter that comes with a Shelly Laurenston book gets better and better with each story that I read from her. She is a master magician with her words and knows how to draw you into the story and have you laughing yourself silly in the first page that you read." (Fallen Angels Reviews)

    "Another great INCLUSIVE bwwm paranormal love story"

    Shelly Laurenston does another excellent job with writing diverse, inclusive paranormal stories. Her stories ALWAYS have characters (main & supporting) with different skin colors, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations & various age ranges ( females not all under 30 or for breeding) I give loud applause to the snarky comments, witty one liners & great drama with wonderful fight scenes. Shelly Laurenston stories are Always a great choice for the money/credit.. thumbs way up.. I wish more paranormal female writers wrote characters similar to THEIR own age & surround their story characters with diverse LOOKING individuals . Can't older females have Adventures & lovers also????? Erotica stories don't ALWAYS be for females that can have or want children . Older female warriors with various skin tones can have kinky & exciting diverse SEX & love interest just like the majority of the readers & audible listeners (want to have). hint hint.. Great job S.L. MORE PLEASE .. Loyal fan.. ME

    "Just ok"

    Shelly laurenston is one of my go to authors for fun sexy reads. This one was just ok in my opinion. It is set in the same universe as a couple others about the crows and ravens from Norse mythology set in modern day. The others were more interesting and definitely more funny and kept my attention well. This one not so much. Honestly there were times I fell asleep and nothing much had happened and I didn't even bother to

    "Great book, despite narration."

    The narrator was horrible, but the story was so enjoyable she didn't ruin the book. She wasn't consistent with the voices she chose for the characters so it was hard to tell who was speaking at times. In some instances it was bad, I couldn't tell if it was a male or female and had to rewind to figure out who had spoken. I really like this series and hope the original narrator returns for the next book; or, at the very least someone more consistent that doesn't read every character like they're doing a bad impression of Joe Piscopo.

    "I'm a fan! Good story and narrator"

    I hadn't heard Alexandra Shawnee before but I really like her! I love her voice and she had such a great mixture fun (the characters rocked) but made this story super absorbing. The story was very unique.

    "Disappointed"

    I really enjoyed the other two books set in this universe. They were well plotted, written, and enjoyable. This book had poor transitions between sections, poor editing, lackluster romance. The sex scenes were too descriptive and not particularly enjoyable. I felt like I was in a sex ed class with teens who got off on saying "pussy". In fact I stopped counting after the word "pussy" was used 15 times. It felt like an outline with poorly written sex scenes. There are a few likable characters and plot potentials but overall not realized in this book. I wish I hadn't read this one as the other two books really were worth a read. This one I wish I hadn't purchased.

    "STOP!! BY THE BOOK!! SAVE UR $$$"

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Shelly Laurenston's books; but after 20mins into this narration l had to stop!! This narrator's voice is perfect for "Curious George" type books that you take your kids to public library for storytime or as a the sugary sweet lady none of the kids really like in Sunday school. She COULD NOT even make it as elementary school librarian or 2nd grade teacher because her sickly sweet voice is all super monotoned, and as a veteran elementary teacher myself, I can honestly say would drive the students into boredom rages of misbehavior.
    I just automatically bought the book, l mean why not? Shelly's stories rock! l owned half in long before l got addicted to Audible, & then purchased all of them on Audible because narration in other series was FANTASTIC!! I have DEFINITELY learned my lesson!! What a sorry waste of a credit/ $, especially since I'll be buying this book on kindle or from bookstore. [** For the skeptics ** After my 20 mins of narration torture & before completely giving up all hope of making it through the so-so & not-so good audio because some books are worth trudging though -- I jumped ahead & listened to other parts throughout the novel in hopes of finding some redeeming anything to the narration, but alas dear fellow Horatio readers/listeners who live for Audible.....there wasn't.**]
    TRUST ME, SKIP THIS AUDIBLE!!!!!

    Story
    "Sass and Crass."

    As usual Shelly Laurenston has plenty of quirky characters and a lot of fun and mayhem happening in her book. Not sure why she decided to start a spin-off of the Crow's series when she only has two books out from that series, which I recommend reading those first before this book. It gives a better view of the world SK has built. This book was good and it passed the time quickly but I will admit that Neecy kinda drove me crazy with her always running from Yager. I would have liked there to have been a little bit more chase in the romance before jumping into bed, and not so much after. There is also a lack of story line concerning the bad guys and what exactly they were after, maybe it will lead up to more in the next book, but in this book it is a very thin plot. This book works good as a fantasy romance but not so much as an action/adventure. Since SK is an automatic download for me I look forward to her next addition to this series and hopefully more pride stories. I liked the narrator her Jersey accent wasn't to obnoxious.

    "great book terrible narration"

    The narration was poorly cast. Her voice was too childish and high pitched. Real shame. I love the author and the story but couldn't get over Neecy sounding like a character from Glee.
