For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been completely stressed over work, school, and a million other miscellaneous dramas that just will not leave me alone. I knew I either needed a month at the beach with several cabana boys waiting on me hand and foot, or a really good book that could keep reality at bay for several hours. Well, I have neither the time or the money to run away to the beach (no matter how much I want to) so instead I read Kiss At Your Own Risk by Stephanie Rowe and I have to say, it was better than the cabana boys.
He needed a killer woman…
Blaine Underhill is one lucky man after having recently escaped a century and a half of imprisonment at the hands of an evil witch. Now he’s determined to save his still-enslaved friend, but in order to do so, he’ll need the help of one of the world’s most lethal women.
She was drop dead gorgeous, literally…
Trinity Harpswell is sick and tired of being a Black Widow. Having managed to go three years without accidentally killing anyone she loves, she’s one short week away from freeing herself from this killer curse forever.
When Blaine tracks her down and convinces her to help him, little does Trinity know that the next seven days are going to be murder!
A humorous, fast paced novel, Kiss At Your Own Risk takes everything you thought you knew about paranormal romance novels and turns it upside down. Trinity Harpswell has spent her life trying to seduce and be with (but never fall in love with) men she is absolutely not attracted to. That way, her Black Widow curse won’t be invoked and she won’t murder them. (Murder never really was her thing, not even killing innocent bugs.)
Blaine Underhill thinks that the only way he could ever figure out how to finally kill the evil witch who held him captive and tortured him for the past 150 years, is through the Black Widow. So it’s only logical that he kidnaps her and forces her to do his bidding. But even the best laid plans never work out. Like, he didn’t expect to have to save Trinity from her own mother’s attempted kidnapping. Or that she might not actually want to kill anyone (at least for the next week).
The evil witch Blaine is so desperate to kill, just so happens to be Death’s Grandma. She wasn’t exactly trying to torture her boys (well mostly, sometimes it was required). No, she was trying to turn them into the perfect men. Think hunky, manly warriors who like to cross-stich and paint and aren’t too afraid to talk about their emotions.
I was laughing from the first sentence. (And anyone who has ever been stressed knows, one of the best cures is laughter.) Kiss At Your Own Risk is a wonderful, unique, hilarious novel that can and will keep reality at bay while it takes you on a wild ride.
