Life isn’t exactly normal for Eva Parker: the stronger Eva’s emotions, the faster nearby electrical devices die. Eva can’t have a cell phone, use a computer, or be in a car for more than a few minutes without killing it. Dealing with her electricity-killing curse makes living in modern-day Los Angeles complicated enough for Eva—and that was before she was blackmailed into ...more

I love Rebecca Chastain's Madison Fox urban fantasy series so when she contacted me about reviewing her new paranormal romance I jumped at the chance. This story has all the humour of her previous books but with added sexy times so of course I loved it!

Eva Parker has a very unusual ability: her body absorbs electricity. That might not sound too bad but whenever Eva is feeling any kind of heightened emotion (from happiness or attraction right through to anger or fear) she has no control over he

( romance is one of my favorite genres, as well as urban fantasy. I absolutely love this authors urban fantasy series, Madison Fox, Illuminate Enforcer, so it was a no brainer that I wanted to read a paranormal romance by her.

Eva has lived with a curse her entire life. She drains energy from anything electrical that she is anywhere near. This means she doesn’t own a tv, cell phone, regular phone, computer, or car. Her appliances and lights runs off of gas

I loved Tiny Glitches!

Tiny Glitches is a unique story with a lite paranormal element, lots of action, humor, romance, and a delightful cast of characters. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this but I can say I'm thrilled to have taken the chance on it.

Eva is an interesting young woman. She's a feng shui consultant, is very close to her aunt, and she has this amazing gift/curse. The only drawback is that it drains electricity. This prevents her from riding in cars for long, owning/>Tiny

This is paranormal romance with a punch. Tiny Glitches, Rebecca Chastain’s latest work is by far her most ambitious novel to date. It literally is a post-modern take on the genre. A killer plot, emanating from a series of “tiny glitches,” quickly rollercoaster into a web of intrigue, thrilling mystery, and, of course, romance. It’s

I became a fan of Rebecca Chastain after reading "A Fistful of Evil;" so when she alerted her fans that "Tiny Glitches" was being released I knew I wanted to read it. In all honesty, this book had the potential to be 5 stars for me but what brought the rating down was the author included one too many supernatural aspects that interfered with the story line and reading enjoyment. I will explain in a minute.

This is my third book by the author and I want more! I utterly enjoy the writing style and the voice the author uses in her stories. Even though her stores deal in the paranormal/supernatural world, it feel real and I connect with every character.

I really liked the Eva, the heroine, even though I wanted to kick her! Duh Hudson really, really likes you you daft girl! Would he be at ALL helping you with the whole elephant fiasco if he didn't? I do feel bad that he IS an electrical engineer and sh

Jenny has blackmailed Eva into hiding a baby elephant, yes, I said a baby elephant! Since running into Jenny, Eva feels like nothing could possibly go her way, cursed in fact and I mean that quite literally.

My Review:

I loved the idea of this book. The cover is beautiful and the synopsis caught me almost immediately. I'm buried to my neck in review requests but took this one for that very reason. I needed to read this. I mean, who wouldn't want to read a contemporary paranormal romance that involves an elephantini?!?! What's an Elephantini? You'll have to read the book to figure it out!

At first, I was a little worried that Tiny Glitches wouldn't quite live up to the Madison Fox Series because, let's face it, they're some of my favorite books. I was so worried by this that I went to my mom and asked her for advice. She, of course, said I had an obligation to be honest, even if I adore Rebecca Chastain (she is honestly so nice). I knew she was right, but it turned out to be something I really didn't need to worry about.

This was the second book I have read by author Rebecca Chastain although the previous read was more Urban Fantasy and definitely had a different vibe.

This story is lighter, and funnier, although at times felt a little confusing to me with so many different things going on. That being said the overall read was a good one with some very interesting characters. Having crashed my fair share of electrica

Tiny Glitches was an entertaining hard to put down read. It had its moments of absurdity and one of complete craziness, but all in all I truly loved this book. It kept me wanting to know more and wanting to know how it ended. Rebecca Chastain has written this world where Eva has this ability and curse all rolled into one and then a woman from her past drops a load of crazy on her doorstep and the action never stops. But it did bring her Hudson the very hot and funny security expert.

This has to be the weirdest book I've ever read and that's NOT a bad thing. In fact, I couldn't stop myself from reading page after page until I reached the epic conclusion.

Throughout Tiny Glitches, there was absolutely no boring moments and enough humor to keep a smile plastered onto my face.

From the get go, Rebecca brought the fun when Eva and Hudson began their unwelcome job of elephant sitting. Yup, you read that right..... ELEPHANT SITT

This quirky paranormal story kept me reading from beginning to end. This story was very entertaining the "curse" that Eva must endure is her ability to "Kill" any electrical device. This story gets more interesting when she and Hudson realize that they have more than electrifying chemistry, such as the elephant. It's a well written story, but there are some stale or unnecessary moments, but all in all, I enjoyed it. Chastain does a good job at the balance of "danger" ve

Quirky and ridiculous in a good way. It’s a good thing about the electricity or else everyone would put it down to mental illness. After cute gargoyles nothing should’ve surprised me from this author, but yep. Elephant. Hudson didn’t really grow on me. I was more focused on what the sombrero meant. I liked the support and the cousins were funny. I wouldn’t say fast paced but a light hearted and easy read.

"Tiny Glitches"

Ok, I am still reeling from this book and laughing to myself when trying to formulate a review. I am not sure where or how to start describing my reading experience. I had a similar feeling when I conquered "Guide to the Galaxy"; exhausted, fascinated with the author's imagination and truthfully glad it was over and done with! Let me try to summarize: Eva Parker is a young woman with a gift that is more like a curse with some advantages (few, in my

This is a wonderful and quirky romance. I loved it!

Eva Parker is an unusual character. I liked her a lot, but wanted to shake her at times. She is a Feng Shui consultant with an unusual gift. Unfortunately, she has a problem with electricity - she absorbs it. This powers her ability to see the emotions of people as pictures/hallucinations. This makes it awkward when getting from one place to another, or staying in one place too long, which leads to batteries dying and power cuts. Whe
REVIEW: As far as Eva is concerned, she is cursed: she can’t own a phone, a car or even a home with electronics. Her curse prevents her from being in close contact with anything electronic. Within an hour or even less, cars breaks down and phones die. Her home is fitted with gas appliances only. It’s all tied in with her emotions, strong emotions bring out the curse.

Her only joy is her job. She is a feng shui consultant, and a damned good one. Feng Shui restores her inner peace and p

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Eva was born with a gift, or curse as she calls it, where she basically sucks out everyone’s electricity. Not even cars are safe from her uncontrollable ability. She hates it, but she and those closest to her have learned to adapt. Of course those who don’t know her suddenly believe in curses of bad luck.

I enjoyed the unique concept and plot of this book. The character development progressed nicely with a lot of fun endearing quirks that helped endear the supporting characters.
I would have really liked to given more than 3 stars. Alas, what kept the rating at 3 was that I found myself lost in the extreme amount of seemingly random a images in the main character's visions.

This book promises "electrifying romance and high-voltage suspense in a rollicking adventure." What I read had the potential to be great, but in the end, it all became just too chaotic and confusing, and the rollicking adventure became farcical as Eva got kidnapped or put into cuffs again, and again.

There are many stories within this one book, all overlapping and jumbled together, so it is hard to stay on track. You have the supernatural element of Eva, the hotness of Hudson, the cra

This is one of the best fantasies I've ever read, and I suspect it would cross over well to science fiction readers as well. It is fast paced, unique, and absorbing. If you like stories about people with unusual powers, you will love this one.

I mostly liked it, but at some point it got tedious and reiterative. Like trying too hard to be upbeat and fun, but getting messy and forced instead. Yes, there is certain suspension of disbelief involved (it's a touch paranormal, after all), but what does it say of it that I ended up believing the electricity curse way more than the relationship with the male interest?. Besides, 70 pages less wouldn't have hurt it.

Again, it may have been me.

A charming, light read.

This book won me over. I will admit to starting this not thinking I would like it, but as more and more quirky, fun characters were introduced and the plot started to unfold I was hooked, and who can resist an eliphantini? You're correct, no one! This is a fun, quick read, and well worth your time.

Refreshing & Original

Loved the change of pace and change of plot from many other books I've read recently. In fact the other titles I've read from this author right before this were very original and kept me glued right to the book until there was nothing left....I'm off to find more of her refreshing reads right now.
