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.
