***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Welcome to Gate City, Virginia, a small town with literal charms!
When the firehouse manned by winsome Weres, sexy Shifters, and delectable Dragons
requires a new engine for their truck, sultry Siren and local bar proprietor Rena Karahalios,
offers to organize a benefit to help raise the money—and perhaps spread some harmless
community-wide debauchery in the process…
I WANT IT ALL, AND I WANT IT NOW…
It took some doing, but Rena’s schedule would provide the perfect balance for commingling mortals and Supernaturals without overtly risking exposure to the mortals. Then, days before the event, Rena finds herself in need of two extra bodies. Luckily, the lure of alcohol and a well-played hustle allows her to draft her two best friends, Leine O’Quinn and Ava Nassar, a Pooka and a Succubus respectively, and the crisis was averted. So, what’s the event? Speed
dating! The epitome of a little less talk and a lot more action! And when the room is filled with
hot men and gorgeous women, the possibilities are endlessly…steamy!
I love most anything supernatural and I was really excited to read this one. While I enjoyed having the short dictionary in the front of the book to reference when I wasn’t sure about characters, I feel that it was distracting to have to go all the way to the beginning of the book and then find my place again. I also feel that the book was too short to really warrant having the dictionary. Descriptions could have been added when a new character/species was introduced.
I also felt that since it is so short, the author pushed too many different elements into the story. I think that had the book been a full length novel, or even one hundred pages long, it would have worked better. There were some phrases in a different language I wasn’t sure of the meaning so I feel like I missed a few things.
