Drea's Review:

Emma hears a voice in her head. It's a hot, demanding male who claims he's just trying to protect her whenever he tells her a guy isn't good enough for her. She wants rid of him and is willing to do anything to make that happen. Even travel to Mexico to free him from some magical prison. But when her "Guy" turns out to be a god, Emma's life will never be the same.

This heroine had me laughing at the start. Unfortunately, though the story is fairly solid all the way through, the humor petered off for me. Humor is so hard to keep going through an entire book, so it's understandable. The hero's yo-yoing, supposedly for the heroine's sake, drove me a bit bonkers. I probably would have given this a higher rating if it hadn't been for that (or if the humor had carried through to the end). Though there is plenty of reason for both characters to whine, we don't get much of it. And last, but not least, we get a nice resolution at the end.  Mechanics wise, the writing is good. So this get's a solid 3*.

  1. I love humor in books too, as long as the book can keep me laughing, it doesn't matter if the plot makes sense or not. But I do agree, humor is tricky and it is harder to make someone laugh than make them cry... Or horny.

  2. I have this on my tbr pile. I read a short from her earlier this year and it was hysterical and the humor carried through the whole time but, yeah, it was a short so not too hard on that front. Glad it still worked for you a bit.

    1. I'm reviewing #4 in the series, too. It was a little funnier. But I think I missed a lot in 2 and 3 (plus a few shorts).

  3. I keep picturing someone saying in a creepy tone "I hear voices..." :P Sad to hear that the humor didn't make it all the way through.

    1. lol! The voice started on like page 2, so I had plenty of time to get over that. But yeah, I was like o_O really? And then I was like Ooohh, this could be good ;)
