Synopsis (Goodreads):
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 whoever 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…
Thoughts on Wolf With Benefits: This series just keeps getting better. More entertaining, more insane, more more more. And I LOVE IT!

I don't know what it was about Ricky Lee, but I ended up adoring him. Maybe it was his determination to see things through. Toni needed him there, he was there. Maybe it was the way he kept following her around and lending a hand in his easy-going way. All I know is that he might seem like a laid back guy on the surface, but he was adorable and he grew on me in a big way.

Flat out, Toni's family is terrifying. From the twins right on up, they're little monsters. Cute little monsters, but monsters all the same. Breaking away and living her own life wasn't easy, but Toni did it. Sure, she still have to wrangle Novikov (who is SO MUCH like her siblings it's hilarious), but she found her niche and (after a few false starts) dug in good.

And Toni and Ricky Lee were so cuuuuute.

(Totally loving all the face time with Novikov, too. I like that guy and his seriously OCD ways.)

The saddest part about ending this book is knowing I only have one more to go before I have to stop my reading binge. I wants more. MOAR.
