***13 Authors put their brains together to write ONE story***
Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen a cab is not a normal way to meet someone. Damn it if that tattoo-covered would-be felon isn’t everywhere now, and lighting everything on fire under her skirt.
His name is Hudson Fenn, and he’s frustratingly impossible to pin down. He works as a bike messenger, but has the manners of a prince—along with a strange tendency toward breaking and entering. As much as Verity knows he’s not her type, and likely to land her in jail, she can’t help but find her truest self when they’re together.
Can she be brave enough to give Hudson a real chance? Will he be bold enough to reveal the man beneath the ink, or will his secrecy doom their connection? Also, WTF is the deal with Verity’s boss? No less than thirteen of your favorite romance writers have teamed up to tell this sexy, wacky, snort-inducing tale. With them you’ll visit the world’s most irritating office, a VIP room of questionable cleanliness, and the fanciest apartment a bike messenger has ever inhabited, but you’ll still never see this ending coming.
I am a huge fan of madcap, caper movies with big casts that include superstars in cameo or supporting roles. The enjoyment of the collaboration shines through and makes the experience all the more amazing for its audience. Now, apply that same principle to the new release — Felony Ever After. THIRTEEN famazing authors writing one book – each taking a chapter, then passing the story on to the next person. They, in the process have to manage not only continuity, but the flow of the story and giving voice to the characters. See where I’m going here? It’s the best game of literary hot potato that keeps you laughing and swooning for chapters on end.
Can you just imagine being the proverbial fly on the wall as Debra Anastasia and Helena Hunting were planning this project out? Holy. Crap. This group of authors is a reader’s wet dream!!!!!
But the story is the star – I fell in completely and utterly in love with Verity and Hudson. They were everything and more about what I love in a New York romance – it takes on the personality of the city. It’s is big and loud, but it has these quiet moments where it’s just these two sweet and funny people have connected, in that space and time, they are the only two people in the world. Sigh.
This book is a true caper that will have you laughing until you cry. I totally loved what each author brought to the story and these characters. Felony Ever After is never for a single second predictable – you are on the edge of your seat as the story unfolds.
Don’t even think twice – one-click this book and savor every word like the best piece of chocolate.
