Review: Felony Ever After by Helena Hunting et al


About The Book

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.

What I Liked: 
Pretty much all of it. 
Multiple authors writing various chapters of a book with just a vague outline to hold the entire story together should have been a disaster but it wasn't. It was actually awesome. The whole thing worked incredibly well, the characters were well written, it was funny, off the wall weird, fast paced and unpredictable. 
I really enjoyed it and I found myself laughing out loud more than once and reading with a huge grin on my face. 


What I Didn't Like: 
The time it took for me to settle into the switches between the different authors. 
I don't know if it was just in my head or not but the subtle differences between each chapter seemed obvious in the beginning - and bugged me - but after a few chapters I stopped noticing and the feeling of 'meh' turned into 'me likey'.

Other Thoughts:
You can't take this book too seriously. It's entire premise is nuts and if you suspend any kind of reality and just roll with it it's great. Otherwise I think it'd be hard to really sink into and enjoy.
