Abby is having the worst day of her life and finding out she is cursed and once a month she will turn into a creature she has no control of is just the icing on the cake of her crappy day. After a run in with the new sheriff she wonders if her luck might be changing.
River, the new sheriff in town, isn’t exactly what you see. He has a bigger job. Find monsters and kill them. He was sent to the small town of Harbor Cove to do just that. When River takes one look at Abby and he forgets what he is supposed to be doing.
When the Jersey Devil and the Gnome start causing problems River calls in a friend to help him hunt down the Crypdides. When the body count starts rising, when secrets are revealed, and when someone he cares about is at risk River must make one of the hardest decisions of his life. Do what he is in town to do, kill the monster, or go after the person he loves.
The book is amazing and funny right from the start. I’m glad I discovered this wonderful new author. Bonnie Gill propels us into the world of live Gnomes, tampon genies, and Jersey Devils, and makes it so you never want to leave.
What if you could live your life for the first 25 years happily but with mildly bad luck as the norm. Then on your 25th birthday you get a visit from your very own cursed genie. Who lets you know that from now on (once per month), you ll turn into a very cursed demon — mythological, but demon none the less. This happens once and the young lady is determined to escape the curse.
Would you hook up with anyone? Romantically? Old best friend? Live life the best way you can? Or try to hide, and disappear?
When a script or book is well written, I become involved in the story itself. That is how it was with this book. Right from the start, I was able to visualize the plot, location and what each person looked like. I was hooked.
One day when I was about two-thirds through the book I resumed reading and read into the night until I finished it. Every time I was at a point where the pace slowed, the author inserted a new twist. I was like “Wow, I wasn’t expecting that”.
The book was a good blend of romance, sex, fantasy and humor. Especially the Tampon box. That was a different twist. I became so involved in the story that I was disappointed to see it end. I hope the author is considering a sequel or series.
Any man who has ever considered reading a paranormal romance book should read this one.
Gill set her story in contemporary New Jersey where Abby Fitzgerald finds herself living out her family’s notorious curse. And the worst part isn’t that a tampon genie cursed her on the first day of her period every month – no, the worst part for Abby is the man she’s fallen in love with is the one man who’s been sent to destroy her thanks to her damned curse.
River Stone works for the Legends and Myths Paranormal Squad hunting Cryptids and keeping humans safe. When he takes a new assignment where he must stop or kill a man eating gnome and the legendary Jersey Devil, the last thing he expects is to fall for the lovely Abby. She’s entranced him, yet she changes into the notorious Jersey Devil.
I loved this story. How can these two lovers resolve this impasse? Will Abby find a way to stop the curse? How will River resolve his professional duty with what his heart tells him must be? They garner some help from their friends Pepper and Ottar, secondary characters who are hilariously drawn and promise a future story of their own, I hope.
No spoilers here. You’ll have to nab yourself a copy and see how Abby and River resolve their impossible dilemma and deal with their inevitable romance.
I laughed all the way to the end. If you love paranormal romance, have a soft spot in your heart for animals, love a happily ever after yet yearn for a twist of humor to lighten the mood, treat yourself to a copy of this book.
I’ll be looking forward to more from Bonnie Gill and the L.A.M.P.S. sexy Cryptid hunters.
I was given an ARC of the novel in exchange for my honest review.
