Lust can be downright lethal.

Thanks to her freakish, satyr-like power, Jessica Moore was denied her dream to join the Gryphons, the magical law-enforcement officers protecting humanity from the pred races. But after the Gryphons tried to arrest her for murders she didn’t commit, Jess is no longer interested. Too bad—they are.

Now that they know what she can do, they want J

Jessicas not as stupid this time, but she’s meaner. These people are your friends! They helped you! Could you get off your moral high horse and be nice for a change Jess?

Also the author decided to add in sex, which got a bit repetitive after a while. (Also the case she was investigating was sexual in nature.) At least the romance didn’t take over the plot.

The mystery was upped a notch. I didn’t know who’d done it until they told me!

Bored in the beginning, exciting at the end.

The Good

I really enjoyed Wicked Misery, the first book to this story, so I jumped at the chance to try out the second. Though it wasn’t was exciting, the overall story arc for the series is getting good.

Jessica is being forced to help the Gryphons, something she waned to do all her life but not anymore. The Gryphons are not as great as she once thought, but she helps them to stay out of jail.

Happy book birthday to my book! Hope everyone enjoys it!

After her rather public exposure last book, Jessica receives an offer from the Gryphons – they want her to work with them as a consultant, using her unique gifts to catch criminals. For which she will be paid a generous salary – and not go to prison. It’s less an offer and more a demand with menaces.

And part of her “unique gifts” involve exploiting her friendship and connections with the satyrs – who are currently prime suspects in a series of grizzly, sex related murders.

The satyrs are not happ

Dirty Little Misery is the second book in the Miss Misery series and just as awesome as book one.
We pick things up pretty much straight away following book one and Jess is dealing with the aftermath of her clash with Victor and the Sylphs. The Gryphons are all in Jess’s business as they try to get answers about why she was at the centre of the war, what her powers are, what she can do and also about her side business… making her ver

Dirty Little Misery, Tracey Martin
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I’ve had a slew of paranormal romances recently that have been fun, but a bit fantasy lite type reads. Here we’ve got something with a bit more depth, more to get your teeth into, plots that need to be worked out, rather than those which are easy to predict. I’d not read the first book, or the novella but I still found it easy to pick up – I read the samples and some reviews to get a general idea of the story. Its one for my

'Dirty Little Misery' is the phenomenal second book in the Miss Misery series. The book continues to follow main character Jessica "Jess" Moore as she still tries to figure out her powers (or curse, in her mind) along with figuring out who is killing women in her town. The Gryphons threaten to charge Jess with all types of magical crimes if she doesn't agree to help them find the killer - and fast. After figuring out that the women are being given illegal magical drugs that are tainted - and ...more

Blackmailed into working for the Gryphons, Jessica finds herself torn between the humans and the preds. Her first case really tests loyalties because it may involve her lover and as she’s delves into the Satyr’s business she uncovers a scheme more sinister than dirty drugs – one that may tear her and Lucen apart completely in this mesmerizing urban fantasy romance.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with suspense, excitement and romance. The author brings the stor

Dirty Little Misery was an amazing sequel to an amazing first book. I am in love with this series, Martin has created an incredibly interesting world and I cannot wait for more books set in it. One thing that I really loved was that Martin did not forget about the larger plot that we got the start of in Wicked Misery while the individual plot for this one played out. She did a great job of balancing both without one feeling like it was overpowering the ot

We start off DIRTY LITTLE MISERY with the Gryphons calling Jess in and blackmailing her into working for them. As you can imagine, not everyone in her life is happy to have her on the inside, and it just so happens that not everyone on the inside has Jess's best interest at heart. I thought that Jess handled the situation and being in the middle of two different worlds pretty well. It definitely isn't easy but she pulls through and everyone is better for it by the end of the book.

There are a lot

Let me start with saying I did it again, I didn't read book one. I think this may have hurt me a little bit. LOL I need to go back and read it because some of that back story is there. And though I know that, I still really liked this one. Jessica is being blackmailed to help the Gryphons. She use to want but not anymore. She had her expectations with them be let down, and so she helps them stay out of jail. Then she's got a case that involves a lot of sex and the Satyrs, which causes a rift ...more

I picked this book up immediately following Wicked Misery. While it was a good read with a good storyline, I don't feel it had the same intensity as the first book. Since I normally don't pay over $5 for an eBook, I won't continue with the series (for pricing reasons only), as this wasn't as good as the first.
