Felony Ever After - ARC Review


***A Domino Anthology: 13 Authors ONE story***

Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen cab is not a normal way to meet someone. Damn it if that tattoo-covered would-be felon isn’t everywhere now, and lighting everything on fire under her skirt.

His name is Hudson Fenn, and he’s frustratingly impossible to pin down. He works as a bike messenger, but has the manners of a prince—along with a strange tendency toward breaking and entering. As much as Verity knows he’s not her type, and likely to land her in jail, she can’t help but find her truest self when they’re together.

Can she be brave enough to give Hudson a real chance? Will he be bold enough to reveal the man beneath the ink, or will his secrecy doom their connection? Also, WTF is the deal with Verity’s boss? No less than thirteen of your favorite romance writers have teamed up to tell this sexy, wacky, snort-inducing tale. With them you’ll visit the world’s most irritating office, a VIP room of questionable cleanliness, and the fanciest apartment a bike messenger has ever inhabited, but you’ll still never see this ending coming.

Kristine's Review:
Reviewed: March 2016.
 It's an interesting concept, one story written by thirteen authors, sure I've read plenty of anthologies - compilations of several authors individual work, I've even several co-written books, those written by two authors under a pen name and others written by two established authors who for whatever reason have decided to come together for a project, but even with all of that, thirteen authors writing together to form one cohesive story is ground breaking, taking those build your own stories from primary school where you would write a line before passing it on to your friend to continue around a circle a whole new meaning. Creating a fun adventure seemed possible with the calibre of authors taking part, but having Verity and Hudson's voices consistent through out well that was another ask entirely.
From the very first page Verity with her quirky and sometimes downright odd work place was endearing, her boss while exceptionally good looking was creeptactular in the best possible way, never freakishly scary where the hairs on your neck stood up, but so odd that he almost seemed normal...almost.... every interaction with Larold Lay had me twitching and yet desperate to know what was in the this isn't reminiscent of SE7EN but my curiosity was most definitely piqued, everything about him screamed that he was hiding secrets that would ultimately leave me with widened eyes crooning ewwwwww....
Where Lay was intriguing in that odd way, Hudson was the kind of hero you couldn't help but want to know more about, with his bright eyes and charming smile, arms full of ink that gave him just enough of an edge to match that smooth criminal, sure he seemed to be hiding his own secrets but instead of creeping me out or making me twitch all it did was make me more curious for what was to come next.
Felony Ever After was a fast paced, sexy romp into the life of Verity, a young woman who was stuck in a job she didn't enjoy and with a boss who annoyed her at every turn, a run in with a man covered in tattoo's and a taxi cab one night had the propensity to alter the course of her life, and gave her a reason to think outside of her less than exciting life and imagine something better. Verity's voice was delightful, with a perfect blend of humour and steam this book had me giggling through out, as well as reuniting me with authors I love and introducing me to authors I had never read before, seamlessly executed Felony Ever After was the perfect easy read, that left me sated, with a smile on my face.
