Dana has never been able to let go of her first love, Ray, a married man she was dating after she graduated from college. Now, 20 years later, Dana has begun dating Hank. To complicate matters, Dana has begun a flirtation with a 25 year old crossword puzzle writer named Billy, who she has an instant connection to. Through out the book Dana is trying to decide what to do with her messy love life. She gets into some comical situations, backed by a charming supporting cast of characters. Its fun to follow Dana while she puzzles her way through her romances and eccentric job. I would recommend this book to readers who like their romance novels with a side of comedy.

This book was a good read it has a some what unique story line that involves witches, and vampires. I think having the main character as an FBI agentThis book was a good read it has a some what unique story line that involves witches, and vampires. I think having the main character as an FBI agent was new but the concept of supernaturals using there abilities to help investigations I've read before, that doesn't make this story any less enjoyable. The main character is hunting a serial killer when she unravels a connection from her family to the case and meets a security specialist that she immediately forms a strong connection with. I don't want to give away to much of the story and spoil it for a new reader but I will say it was fast paced the romance was hot and passionate. It left me looking for a second book already...more

Some of it did make me laugh, but mostly it was like no other poetry I have actually read and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. I'm still trying to figure out if it was meant to be funny or serious. It closely resembled someone's status up date on facebook you know just random rambling. But just because I didn't quite get it doesn't mean others won't, this was a free book I won off of a Goodreads contest thanks for sending me a free book. I wouldn't mind reading something else this author has written just so I could get a better feel for his style I might have liked the poems better if I could tell what tone he had meant them to be read....more
I'm going to try not to write any spoilers in my review since I know its irritating. This is a great third book in the Charley Davidson series. AnyoneI'm going to try not to write any spoilers in my review since I know its irritating. This is a great third book in the Charley Davidson series. Anyone that enjoys paranormal romance, or just a kick ass take no prisoners main character will fall in love with this book series. I highly recommend you start at the beginning or you will miss out on very important situations, information, and character development. This book is an edge of your seat fast-paced read. The characters are all well rounded and have substance. I find myself wishing I could have coffee with most of Darynda's Characters. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this original take on the supernatural world. It will grab you buy the seat of your pants and not let go even when the book is finished I find myself wondering what's going to happen next. I want to tell you about the story line but I don't want to give away anything about the book, so I will just say this its a shocking read for Charley Davidson's fans and the situations and ending will blow you away. I find myself irritated and fascinated all at the same time. This book took me less than a day to read I just couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the 4th book to come out!! I'm going to end up rereading the first 3 books to tide me over until the 4th book comes out, then I will have to find something else to distract myself cause I'm sure her book won't be out next month no matter how hard I wish. :) If you've never read this series before what are you waiting for you won't regret for one minute picking up the first 3 books you might even thank me for telling you about them. :)
I love this series I randomly found the first book at the grocery store first grave on the left, thank god for my addiction to books and the fact thatI love this series I randomly found the first book at the grocery store first grave on the left, thank god for my addiction to books and the fact that I needed cash back or else I don't know if I would have discovered this series. This is a refreshing spin on paranormal romance, Charley the main character is a grim reaper with a sarcastic personality, and a kick ass out look on life. Charley's sense of humor really made me love these first two books this one is a short story but its a nice feeler if your waiting on a new book to be published you can get your Charley & Reyes fix while you wait. The authors writing style really sucks you in and makes her world and characters more realistic and well rounded I felt like I was tagging along with friends instead of reading about fictional characters....more
I am in love with this series!! I read the first two books in the past two days and I'm totally addicted. The sarcastic sassy main character just hasI am in love with this series!! I read the first two books in the past two days and I'm totally addicted. The sarcastic sassy main character just has such a great personality and the way every situation she can find a bit of humor even if it's dry is just great, the surrounding characters all pretty much make this book too. I find myself saying something I never thought I would...I'm totally in lust with the son of Satan lol at least Darynda Jones descriptions of him. I'm sure in the 3 weeks before the 3rd book comes out I will have major withdrawal symptoms....more
