    1. Prickly By Nature is the sequel to Prickly Business and starts some months down the road. Our boys are in love, but there is still a mystery to solve and relationship dynamics to work through.The highlights:*Dylan. He just pushes ALL my buttons. I just love his protective instincts, he's so dominant. He makes me gush and feel all warm and fuzzy.*Avery. I was very excited to read a more mature Avery. In the first book, he was borderline unlikable. There was lots of growing done.*Their relationshi [...]

    2. ***3.5 Stars***Reaching for the bond, Dylan made sure Avery felt what he felt, in his heart. In his soul. That this was what they were. Two halves of a whole. Two hearts beating in time.This sequel follows Dylan and Avery as they continue to navigate their relationship. Avery is still on the hunt for the missing Lacey, but now he's also juggling his private investigator apprenticeship. And with that comes Dylan's struggle with his protective instincts, Avery's busy schedule, and his depth of his [...]

    3. Full review originally posted at SinfullyThe story picks up a few months after the end of Prickly Business. Avery is now an apprentice to private investigator Corbin Reid, a falcon shifter, working towards his own license. In addition to his work with Reid, he is continuing his hunt for missing pack member Lacey. All of this is taking its toll on his ability to spend time with his mate, Dylan. While Dylan is supportive of Avery, he misses his mate and the constant worry over Avery’s safety has [...]

    4. Gimme gimme gimme!*grabby hands*Oh no, November?!? *faints********************ETA:4.0 StarsI enjoyed revisiting with my favorite hedgehog shifter. (Okay, Avery Babineaux is the only hedgehog shifter I know of but still he's my fave!) I love revisiting with established couples that I like and Avery and Dylan fit that bill. I liked the give-and-take of their relationship and the love that shined through as they worked towards compromise. I also enjoyed the resolution of some of the outstanding is [...]

    5. As funny and imaginative as the first story about prickly hedgehog shifter Avery and his protective wolf shifter mate Dylan, this sequel also focuses on the unsolved mystery of the disappearance of a young female werewolf. Her having vanished still bothers Avery, and now that he has his own issues with loan sharks and petty criminals resolved and is firmly mated to Dylan, he can focus on the case. Dylan, for his part, isn’t really happy about Avery putting himself in danger, but for the sake o [...]

    6. So, I really liked the first book in this series. I thought it was charming and adorable, and I loved the unique premise and AVERY IN HEDGEHOG FORM and wolf/shifter and just, yes. I liked it a lot, it kept me smiling and I liked the mystery and the world building. So all of that is still true (I love how PLAUSIBLE the authors make this premise), but this one is my favorite in the series. I really like Avery, and his character growth through the two books was believable and well-done, and also ke [...]

    7. I love reading continuation story about this two shifters cute prickly hedgehog Avery and his mate Dylan, a strong possessive wolf. They got hotter and the sex is getting better, and of course knotting is the best course meal. Although sometimes it's getting me on my nerves when these two being stubborn fighting coz of their pride, I still loved them, can't blame them of their gorgeous faces on the cover.

    8. Not gonna lie, I kinda had to force myself to finish this. It's not terrible. I just don't care. The plot is stagnant and not that interesting anyway. The relationship is kinda like cardboard. Reliable but bland, and every side looks the same. I'm not feeling a lot of depth from them as individuals, or as a couple. It's the second book and I know the minimal about Dillan's family, upbringing, the Pack. I know no more than what I learned at the beginning of the first book. It feels weird. I was a [...]

    9. 4.5 Stars for this paranormal M/M shifter romance. It's the second book in a series and should probably be read in order.Dylan and Avery have been together for a few months. Avery has moved into Dylan's home and they are building a life together, but it's not easy. Avery is working long hours in his training as a private investigator. He comes home late and doesn't see Dylan a lot. Dylan's very protective, and often shadows Avery when he's out on a case--it's caused friction in the past, but I t [...]

    10. REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCELife is moving on for Dylan and Avery the newly mated Wolf and Hedgehog.Avery is more than a little obsessed with finding missing wolf Lacey and bringing her home. He is learning the skills needed to become a Private Investigator under the watchful eye of Corbin Reid. Nothing else seems to matter to Avery until he has found Lacey and Dylan is feeling lonely and a bit put out, this is not how a newly mated pair should be living.When they are together everything wor [...]

    11. First read Nov 2015second read Jan 2018rating and comments standFun sequel for Avery the hedgie shifter and his mate. Concentrating on Avery's new job as a trainee PI and his continued attempt to find the missing wolf shifter girl. The ending was a little weak - leaving unanswered questions about who is behind the human trafficking ring. Also leaves the issue of Jaden and the new police officer's mating bond and whether Dylan's friend Louis will return from Louisiana with his new mate.

    12. I wanted more, Lucas, Jadenbut after re-thinkingI so enjoyed this read!Nice plot, interesting storyline. A little off path of a traditional wolf theme, but it worked. Made me wonder how Dylan got any work done in his shopend the end this was a cute read.

    13. 4.3 StarsHA! I knew I'd love this one, and I did, for some of the same reasons as I loved the first oned for plenty of others. First off, the sex is always smoking hot (KNOTTING!); secondly, their animal characteristics coming through in their human personalities.But what I adored about this one was how much work they both put into their relationship. They initially fought the mating bond (first book) and never really got the time to know each other well after hooking up. So, this book was more [...]

    14. Review @scatteredthoughtsandroguewordsPickly by Nature is the second book in the Portland Pack Chronicles series by Piper Vaughn and Kenzie Cade. As I already mentioned in the review of the first book, Prickly Business, I love that this series is not the typical Piper’s work. I’m not very familiar with Kenzie writing yet, but I don’t miss a story by Piper and the mystery is a new theme and so welcomed.We meet Dylan and Avery again months after the ending of Prickly Business, that left a lo [...]

    15. I really liked the relationship development in this. Whereas in Prickly Business Avery and Dylan didn't communicate well at all (and that might be the understatement of the year), they definitely put forth more effort in this installment. Which went a long way to mollifying my ire over the last one.The mystery is well balanced with the romance, and character growth and introduction makes this seem like a series that could really get some legs.The narration by Iggy Toma is wonderful! Iggy has a t [...]

    16. I'll admit I struggled to get into this book. Maybe that's because of the holidays or general end of the year blehness but it was hard. Avery really annoyed me. I don't know how much of his behavior was because he's a hedgehog shifter, and how much is because his insecurity, or how much is him just being a jerk. But I thought he treated Dylan pretty badly, or was just very short with him for no reason. But also, Dylan has his own set of issues. His "protectiveness" is really overbearing and suff [...]

    17. I'm reading this now. one irritating note. having lived in pdx, nobody in Portland calls the max, MAX. like, you don't say, I'm going to take MAX. you say, I'm going to take the max. it's not a horse, it's a train. like you take THE subway, not take subway.ok, I just finished. issues as follows1. Sven, you are too stupid for words2. Avery, borderline too stupid for words3. Dylan, please smack Avery.4. I really want to read about Lucas because I'm done with stupid Avery and Sven.

    18. Great sequel!What a great continuation of Avery and Dylan's story. Full of mystery, action and angst, Avery is learning the PI business. He's so caught up in it, he's been neglecting his mate and Dylan is feeling left alone. Both of them need to work through their feelings, and with a tragedy looming ahead of them, they must work together and be together to come out on the other side. Brilliant storyjust perfect!!

    19. 4 Heart Review by VickiBack to the world of hedgehog and wolf shifters we go! I loved the first story in this series and I’ve really been looking forward to this one.This book picks up not too long after Prickly Business took place, and follows the same two characters. Avery the hedgehog shifter, and his mated man, Dylan the wolf shifter. In the first book the two had issues bonding and cementing their fated mating. Neither wanted a mate, much less one of a different species. It took some time [...]

    20. y Review:I thoroughly enjoyed the first installment of this book which is always a worry when it comes to a second book featuring the same couple. Sometimes it's hard to maintain that same quality of story line into the second and subsequent books. For this series that was especially true just because the conflict between the two MC's was their inherent differences that kept them apart. But the authors used those differences brilliantly in this book to maintain the same style of conflict without [...]

    21. We met Dylan and Avery in book one, they’d finally admitted they were mates and are willing to make a go of it. Meanwhile, Avery is hot on the case of a missing wolf shifter and it’s turning into a career. Dylan supports Avery, but hates the time he’s away from home and the danger he’s in.Meanwhile, people involved in the shifter case keep ending up dead and this makes Dylan all the more worried. But… the tension from the case and the unexpected reception they receive at Avery’s brot [...]

    22. Good conclusion for Avery and Dylan. Nice progression to their relationship and wrapping up some things from the first book. I'd like Lucas's story and Jaden & Heath's now please!

    23. Puas dan lega melihat ending-nya. What a great ride. Begitu padat isinya ketimbang shifter romance lain yg kubaca. Aku suka melihat bagaimana Avery dan Dylan membangun relationship mereka, bagaimana keduanya belajar utk berkompromi, Dylan yg overprotektif (sifat natural wolf shifter) dan Avery yg gerah dgn posesifnya Dylan, kisah cinta mereka lebih dari sekedar bonding dan mating lantas HEA ikat pake pita merah.Akhirnya masuk buku 2 ini the bad guys ketangkap semua, dan akhirnya Avery bisa berko [...]

    24. I really liked this book. Avery is still sassy and spunky and Dylan is still the protective, hunky, motorcycle-loving mate of his. Opposites really do attract. Life is never dull for this couple.In this second book of the series, this pair has turned domestic. In the first book, Avery was portrayed as a guy who loves shoes and has a huge collection as well as a very expensive wardrobe and is the "southern belle". Dylan is the Macho Man. In this second book, Avery is now a detective-in-training a [...]

    25. I loved Avery and Dylan. Dylan's little freak out when they were in the grocery store was funny, and Avery's responding one after they got home was, too. Can't wait to see what Piper and Kenzie give us next!

    26. I thought I had already read this book. It’s in my ebook library. I’ve read the first book in the series. I assumed I had consumed the second one as soon as I purchased it. And yet, somehow I managed not to. I didn’t catch on until about two hours into the audio, when I was trying to figure out WHY DON’T I REMEMBER ANY OF THIS?! And you know what? I’m thrilled that I got to experience this book for the first time in audio. Thanks, past me, for being a ball dropper because this audioboo [...]
