  • I Fell in Love with a Felon, and You Will Too.

    Felony Ever After isn’t just a masterpiece of romantic comedy, it’s an EPIC collaboration – there’s no other way to describe such a seamless, perfectly crafted novel, created sequentially by thirteen separate authors. Having read books by several of them, I could detect traits of their personalities and writing styles as I read their respective chapters; but the differences were so perfectly subtle, they gave each chapter a unique feel without interrupting the flow of the story. Each chapter and each contributor built on – and blended seamlessly with – the previous one. Each plot point carries forward effortlessly, from the story’s crazy beginning to its perfectly satisfying end. I’m simply impressed beyond words. Honestly, I’m not surprised, because with Deb Anastasia and Helena Hunting behind this quirky and ambitious project, there’s literally no way it could be anything less than stellar. We’re talking about several well-known, best-selling authors, and a few truly talented debut authors as well. The story is tender and sweet in the right places; crazy-outrageous when you least expect it; a tiny bit angsty when it’s appropriate; hilariously funny at every turn (I could write an entire review on the humor alone); and off-the-charts hot just when you need it the most. You can literally feel the fun the authors had passing along the chapters and setting each other up for the next turn in the story. What wicked fun it must have been. Honestly, I would give up a minor appendage to have witnessed their writing and editing process – and a vital organ for the privilege of a being part of a writing team with such incredible talent. And now, about the story … Verity Michaels and Hudson Fenn are officially one of my all-time favorite romantic couples in the comedy genre. Verity is the safe, rational one; Fenn is the spontaneous, reckless one; together, they are a couple you’ll remember long after you finish their story (especially if you follow their accounts on Twitter). Verity is small-town Florida ‘transplant’ working as a receptionist for an export company in downtown Manhattan. She has a tedious job and a misogynistic creeper for a boss. She’s all but given up her dream of being a professional photographer, after failing in a start-up business in her home town. She moved to New York when her too-helpful father set her up with an interview with a former fraternity brother — the soon-to-be-infamous creeper/fetishist, Larold Lay, CEO. After working late one evening, she reluctantly shares a taxi with the enigmatic Hudson Fenn, aka ‘Tattoo’ – a bike courier who looks like a thug and doesn’t fit any of her notions of a potential romantic partner. She assumes he’s a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks; assumes he lacks ambition because he’s content riding a messenger bike around town all day; and assumes he’s a felon because of his penchant for secrecy – and, well, breaking the law. One could hardly blame her for having more than a few reservations. And yet… She knows she shouldn’t want him, but she does. She quickly realizes she has an adventurous side, but is reluctant to let herself go, until Fenn gives her no choice. Fenn’s challenge? Convincing her that he’s more than he appears to be. Earning her trust, while keeping his secrets. Therein lies the internal and external conflict, the mystery, the angst, but also some of the funniest, steamiest, and most moving moments in their story. She’s powerfully drawn to him, and he to her; but how can she be expected to freely give herself to someone who can’t, or won’t, let her in? The conflict is central to the story, and beautifully developed, at just the right pace to keep you glued to your Kindle from beginning to end. It’s best that you discover his secrets – and other, even more outrageous and unpredictable aspects of this love story – for yourself. Seeing how Fenn romances Verity, and handles the challenge of winning her heart, will make you laugh, possibly cry a little, and laugh again. It’s all part of the magic. I promise that the answers will surprise and totally satisfy you – they delighted me. I also guarantee you’ll fall in love with this “smooth criminal” before that first cab ride is over, and fist-bump the nearest bystander when Verity finally finds her feet and stands up to her dirt-bag of a boss. Fenn’s spontaneity, his reckless sense of fun, his passion for life, his devotion to Verity, his tattooed bad-boy persona – not to mention his sexual prowess – make him one of the most unique and disarming heroes I’ve read in quite awhile. He brings out the best in her, she brings out the beast in him — and it’s a wild, wonderful journey to see how it all plays out. I certainly hope this isn’t the last of the Domino novels. I want more, and more, and more. Don’t wait — buy it now and read it all night if you have too. #TotallyWorthIt #PoundHudson #WhatsInTheBox.

  • A fun, funny, sexy and all around great read

    **the authors provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review Rating 4.5/5 (rounded to 5) I loved this story! It was exactly what I needed for a fun weekend read (that started on Thursday because I couldn't resist). It was fun, funny, sexy, and a great read. The book is written by 13 (!!) authors and it flows seamlessly. I don't know how they managed to pass the story thread from one to the next and not lose the details or plot but it is brilliantly done. The story line was great. It's funny and sweet and sexy. So, so sexy. I just need to take a moment to appreciate how delightful the mysterious Hudson is. Tattooed taxi thief, bike messenger, master of break and enter. Yet you know there's got to be more to his story. And Verity. Working as a secretary for the sleaziest of bosses. For a book that could be classified as New Adult, I was impressed that I really liked Verity. Too often I find that early twenties character to come off as a bit of a vapid party girl, and while there was definitely drinking, Verity had much more substance to her character. Verity and Hudson both have some trust issues and what could be a lighthearted story took the time to address them. There are also lots of great laugh out loud moments throughout the book. Hudson can be especially cheeky ;) We're also left wondering for a large part of the book "what's in the box"...no seriously, what's in the box? And the eventual reveal is not a disappointment!! And the tweets....oh the tweets. Embarrassing, hilarious, sometimes sweet and all of them are #awesome My only complaint (and it's a minor one) was, I found the twist at the ending to be a little too pat. Not that it couldn't happen, life is full of strange coincidences, but it felt like just tying up one of the remaining story lines. Since it wasn't a major one, it really didn't have that much of an impact on the overall story. If you're looking for a fun, funny, sexy (make no mistake, this book is definitely rated M for mature) read or to bust a reading slump, Felony Ever After is the perfect choice.
