RATING: BUY IT
With the long list of well-known authors attached to this book, I don’t think there is a single person I know that reads this genre that didn’t hear about Felony Ever After. Off the bat, what makes this book so interesting is that, “13 authors put their brains together to write ONE story.” And these are not just any authors. These are authors that many of us pre-order and devour each and every book they release: Helena Hunting, Debra Anastasia, Nina Bocci, Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward, Leisa Rayven, Liv Morris, Tijan, JM Darhower, Belle Aurora, KA Robinson, SM Lumetta & Katherine Stevens.
Felony Ever After was WAY up on my TBR list, but when I heard that it went KU, it shot to the top of the list. I couldn’t wait to read it and write a review for the blog. At first, I was excited. Very excited. Right up until the moment that I went to read the first page. Then, I got nervous. Would these voices all make sense or would each chapter force me to find my footing over and over again? I knew I loved these authors, but they’re all so unique, I literally hesitated for a moment before diving in.
Was my worry all for nothing? Abso-fucking-lutely!
This book is everything I hoped it would be and more. It’s fun and funny. Sexy and fast paced. It’s also kind of ridiculous in parts, in a REALLY good way. And, it’s interesting and not at all predictable. Funny, sexy, interesting and unpredictable? Seriously, what more could a girl want?
What really impressed me, even more than the fabulous story, is the consistency. Definitely in the writing, but most notably in the humor. The truth is, not all writers are funny. I know MANY of these authors are, however, not all writers are and not all writers aspire to be. Yet, so many of these chapters were written in the same deadpan, sardonic way that actually made me snicker out loud. I knew, based on some of these authors that I’ve read, to expect that, but it went so beyond my expectations. Color me impressed!
Have I even mentioned the actual story whatsoever? Nope, looks like I haven’t. That wasn’t intentional, but truthfully, I’ve said everything that I wanted to convey (um, except maybe tattoos and cock piercing *swoon*). This book is truly so damn good. Download it now. You’ll likely devour it in one reading as you won’t want to put it down.
As of 4.18.16, Felony Ever After is available on Kindle Unlimited.
