He’s just about the hottest warrior she’s ever seen…
Reina Fleming really appreciates a man who’s on a mission-especially when he’s a badass warrior doing his best to impress her. And Jarvis is charmed by the way Reina’s magic touch can soothe his dark side. But when Jarvis’s attention puts her job, her home, and her family in danger, Reina has to decide whether love is worth the price…
This is one hard book to describe because so much is going on and it’s crazy in a good way. But first, yes this is book two but it can be read as a stand alone novel too.
Where to start now. Jarvis has been tortured for decades by one crazy woman who wanted men to be in touch with their feelings; she just used a bit too much torture and was just way too insane to get it right. He and his buddies are now free and he sure feels that he can never go near a woman again. Not to mention that he is the Guardian of hate and spreads hate wherever he goes. He is as manly as they get (since he must make up for all those lessons in colour appreciation and knitting.). Sure at times he is a bit too much but who can blame the poor guy.
Reina the heroine is working for Death harvesting souls. But she also has family trouble as all the women in her family are now dead after being bitten by one nasty creature. This makes them feel more powerful and free during their last days (one climbed Mount Everest and fell down). Now she wants to protect the only sister she has left. Jarvis will help her as he also needs help getting his brother back. And of course sparks fly since she was attracted to him from the moment she saw him and he can’t help feeling things he never thought he would feel.
Honestly the books just have to be read to be understood. There is so much going on, so many beings out there. Like the Beedubs who killed her family because they are Sweets (make the best chocolate), The Godfather who is so good that women die when they orgasm. And of course Death, I love him, he is a total ass and playboy but you got to love him. And here we see that there is something more to him. I can’t wait for him to fall in love with a girl and love only her (oh please please give me that book!). And many more. The characters in this book are just the best.
The style is kind of snarky, ironic, sarcastic humour, dark. What I am trying to say it is not haha funny, but funny and incredibly amusing none the less.
How to wrap this up then…The book is amusing, rich in its world and there is passion and romance that threatens to explode off the pages. it is just one of those books you have to read to fully understand what it is all about.
