***A Domino Anthology: 13 Authors ONE story***
Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen 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 was thrown for a loop when I read that 13 authors participated in writing this book! How could they each, with their own ideas, write a story that blends well with what was written before them? I don’t know how they did it, but it sure made for one hell of a book!
First off, the hashtags at the end of each chapter had me laughing hysterically. #TheBoxesMustDie #PoundHudson #Honeybee #HudsonWantsToPound #IDidn’tSignUpForThis #VodkaIsMyBitch #RageDrinking
#NowYouWannaKnowMoreDon’tYa Hudson Fenn (@tatwhiteknight) or also known as Tattoo, is a bicycle delivery man in New York City with a few of his own secrets. He looks like a thug (must be the tattoos) but has a heart of gold. He is a little on the rebellious side, sexy and but not exactly what Verity Michaels is looking for. Verity Michaels, (@VerityPics03) or Honeybee to Hudson is a photographer who had to put her love aside after a failed business brings her from Florida to New York. She is working as a receptionist for Larold Lay, a strange, strange man.
Verity and Hudson meet in a cab. The hilarity ensues with the cab ride and just keeps on going from there. They end up going their separate ways (because you know, he’s a tatted up thug and all) and she thinks she will never see him again. Wrong. Of course he’s going to end up delivering secretive packages to her boss. Hudson programs his number into her phone and away we go. He shows up when she is out with her friends and lets her know just how far he takes his #Stalker abilities by tracking her on Twitter. Of course you know she talks about the fact she wants to #PoundHudson. There were some steamy sex scenes, and along with some splinters, too!
I don’t even know where to begin with Mr. Larold Lay. Instantly, you knew something was just seriously wrong with this guy #EyesUpHere. Until you get to the middle of the book, you really have no idea just how creepy he is!
Verity feels that Hudson is mysterious and is keeping secrets after speaking with her boss, Mr. Lay. If I were Verity, I’d be more worried about Mr. Lay than Hudson. Hudson finally reveals his “secrets” and I really didn’t think it was that bad. I had come up with way worse scenarios as to what exactly he was hiding. #SorryNotSorry I enjoyed this read immensely. There was some romance, some office hijinks, and yet hilarious with a lot of laugh out loud moments and of course those swoon-worthy moments throw in for good measure. This book was very well done by all the authors involved. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope they do it again. I admit I have only read a few of the authors that participated in writing this book, but I will definitely be adding the rest to my TBR list!
I give Felony Ever After Anthology 5 stars!
