I have read a few of Eve Laglais books and most have been either real hits or real misses. This fell in the middle with a sorta shrug on if I liked it.

So the paranormal world has outed themselves and things have not been the same. Now I am not saying every type of paranormal being has been outed, but shifters definitely have. They now have to register to get some protections.

Chloe is a public defender and you wouldn’t really believe the cases she gets like this one: Pete is a shifter who’s peeing on his neighbor’s landscaping because he thinks she is a witch going after his birds. Why her? After talking him down he asks her out and Chloe won’t go for that even if he is tall, dark and handsome.

Throw in she hasn’t won a case against her nemesis, Anthony, the District Attorney. When they meet by chance at a bar, it leads to some hot sex with someone she believes she detests.

But that’s not the end to Pete who tracks her down and gets in good with her parents, but also gives her an experience in bed to rival Anthony. What’s a girl to do when she doesn’t want commitment, but has two males sniffing her way?

Something’s suspcious about Anthony and we all know what Pete is so who’s killing all the witches, even Pete’s horrible neighbor?

Oh, did I mention men outnumber women so there are tax breaks on taking more than one husband? And that Chloe has two dads?

This was full of fun moments, but it got old fast as Chloe kept fighting her attraction to the two until they got her to bed. It got tiring and I never felt there was any rhythm to them all falling into each other to make a HEA of the menage kind.

While shifters are a known species, everyone seems shocked when they meet up with other paranormal species like demons and vampires. While I liked this world Eve created, it never really developed into a world I could understand or want to be apart of. Mostly I ended up being annoyed with Chloe. Oh, but I could keep her snarky best friend who seemed to find some man meat to fill out the sandwich.

So if you love snarky females, this one’s for you. If you like denial and avoidance, yep, you guessed it, this one is for you. If you want a funny, story of lovable characters who kick ass, then I think you might want to skip this one.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • I’ll take your advice and skip it, even if the idea of a shifter peeing on someone’s lawn was kind of funny !

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Sorry to do that. The peeing was funny, but it just took a turn that left me feeling blah about the entire story.

  • lol the shocking part made me laugh, i dont get that either. If shifters exist in that world, kinda have to accept that other things do too. Sorry the actions of the character got old

    • Shari Delighted Read

      This one just didn’t do anything for me. The sex was awesome, but I didn’t like the characters.

  • Sounds like it could have been a good one. Sorry it turned out not to be a great one.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      The intrigue was weak and the characters really unlikeable. I just didn’t fall in love with any of them.

  • Huh, now I get the point of the title. That is hilarious about the peeing, but I can see how too much denying would get old.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I am a hit or miss on Eve’s books. Some really floor me and others have me going “meh” so it started off strong, then just left me wanting to put it down.

  • I haven’t read this one by Eve. There are so many, and she writes so fast,I don’t think I’ll ever be caught up. Sorry this one didn’t work out. Better luck next time.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      She has a ton of books! She is a wonderful woman I met at RAGT, but I am hit or miss on her books. This one was a miss. Can’t like everything.

  • I never say no to snark

    • Shari Delighted Read

      There is plenty of snark in this one. I like snark, but it can get old also if it never really resolves itself.

  • The title of the book makes more sense after reading your review. Not sure if I would like this one with her fighting her attraction until they get her in bed, sounds like there is a bit too much sex compared to story.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      They seduce her left and right into bed where she has no willpower. This reminded me of another book of hers that I couldn’t like either. The sex was written pretty well, it was just outside of bed about half way through the story that I wanted it to all stop.

  • I found this one pretty middling too. I prefer her Freakn’ Shifter or FUC series.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I like her Hell stories. The Lucifer is a hoot.

  • Menage stuff just doesn’t do it for me in any way, shape, or form. I have read one of her alien books and that didn’t do much for me either. I do have a shifter one to read so I hope that one is better-I am not rushing to read it, however. Sorry the heroine annoyed you-probably would annoy me too. Very honest review-thanks!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I am hit or miss on menage. I think a lot of it is over done for shock value. Readers really like her shifter series, but I still didn’t like the two I have read. I just wanted them all to talk without snark and secrets, but I guess that would have been too heavy for a short story.
