    No No No I hate to even think about it.NO I hate to say it.

    R J Blain is a very hit or miss author for me When she s writing about crazy situations that the characters get themselves into, the stories can be hilarious When she s writing dialogue, they are torturous And when she tries to explain how the magic works, the contorted explanations don t always make sense I like the world she s built, and I like the slapstick, crazy mishaps humor I HATE the repetitive dialogue If two characters have a conversation, then one of the characters calls a thi R J Blain is a very hit or miss author for me When she s writing about crazy situations that the characters get themselves into, the stories can be hilarious When she s writing dialogue, they are torturous And when she tries to explain how the magic works, the contorted explanations don t always make sense I like the world she s built, and I like the slapstick, crazy mishaps humor I HATE the repetitive dialogue If two characters have a conversation, then one of the characters calls a third character, under no circumstances should the reader be subjected to the first and third character having the exact same conversation the first and second character JUST HAD The author does this ALL THE TIME It s infuriating to read Every time I read a passage where she makes this mistake, I waiver on whether it s really worth it to keep buying and reading the stories in this series When she does focus on action, they can be really funny, but ONLY when she cuts down on dialogue and focuses on action Her dialogue is MUCH too repetitive and all the characters have the exact same sense of humor I m on the fence This one is about a mixed breed man and his FBI former fiance reconciling There are angels and devils involved, as well as a kitten and puppy, a kidnapping, a plane crash, wrongful imprisonment and exoneration, and learning sword fighting from an elf

    About 3.4 Goodreads stars for an entertaining story I liked it, despite some proofreading glitches This is a comedy, but the hero s backstory and lifestyle mindset at the beginning are pretty bleak undeservedly abysmal self image, frequent anxiety attacks, and no emotional connections support The blurb doesn t mention that he let himself be jailed in solitary, no less, due to his not fully human status by means of telling the truth but far from the whole truth, in order to spare a young About 3.4 Goodreads stars for an entertaining story I liked it, despite some proofreading glitches This is a comedy, but the hero s backstory and lifestyle mindset at the beginning are pretty bleak undeservedly abysmal self image, frequent anxiety attacks, and no emotional connections support The blurb doesn t mention that he let himself be jailed in solitary, no less, due to his not fully human status by means of telling the truth but far from the whole truth, in order to spare a young victim additional trauma, thereby losing everything, even after he s released His angelic ability to see someone s deepest desire when he meets their eyes the reason he rarely does meet people s eyes reminds me of both Harry Dresden s equally troubling soulgaze and TV s_Lucifer_ s machinations Oh, incidentally, the naginata reminds me of Keladry, in Tamora Pierce s YA leading to NA Protector of the Small series she wields a glaive, a very similar weapon, and had early training in an oriental tradition I suspect RJB is also a Pierce fan The irresistible pets, bizarre misadventures, self defense training further along, and even to an extent the anxiety attacks, are played for humor Getting back together in forgiveness andthan just ex sex with Kennedy also involves banter and bad puns, but is believably complicated and tentative.There s an unusual version of elves introduced here, scarily bloodthirsty but possible to deal with if you dare I ve only been occasionally reading impulsively selected RJ Blair stories, since those in the MRCwaBC series are stand alones, so I m not sure whether these elves have appeared before I highlighted one passage in particular which finally aided my suspension of disbelief about the magical genetics of this verse It explains that humans contain all possible potential, for angelic good order all the way through devilish demonic chaos evil, their natures determined only by their free will, which is why when magical and or divine beings who lack such potential and will mix in their blood, their resulting offspring seem plain human.The way the final confrontation went down, and some of what his angelic grandfather said, also worked well The wedding epilogue was fun.I enjoyed much of the story, though I m still not 100% clear on a few things Why is money not an issue for Reed now Did he get a settlement when he was cleared pardoned, or is it just the good contract negotiator job he managed to get And, BTW, cleared and pardoned do not mean the same thing re whether he did or did not commit the crime, so which is it, officially And just when was he pardoned He got early release when the courts were belatedly convinced that he was too human for his totally isolated incarceration to be other than unjustly cruel, but that was before the girl and others came forward, right What is the demon s role in a case of angelic human procreation, or shouldn t I ask This is a general question re the MRC verse, possibly answered in a story I ve skipped These angels are weird enough, keeping their heads in a different dimension, since mortals couldn t survive seeing them in most verses it s the wings that are usually kept hidden What was the cryptic angel Luna s initial motivation, back whenever her connections and plans truly began II ve tried to avoid major spoilers, so I think I ll leave it at that If anybody can clarify some of these points, please do.Finally, I unfortunately feel obliged to mention what I have before with this author underthan one of her pen names her betas editors need to takecare There are comma errors, the majority of which are never putting a closing comma after the often used parenthetical of Kitten, Destroyer of Worlds s jokingly given name, including twice with a doubly wrong possessive written World s and then the puppy was brought in, with the same situation Several sentences have mismatched syntax or other confusion, such as It took me several readings to figure out that the only problem in at least Kennedy s instinct was to slam a pedal put her foot on the brake instead of the gas is an extra was , but what s going on with it amused a smile at me B equeathing me with is a double misuse both of meaning and of preposition endowing me with or bestowing X upon me would suit better, since the giver s not gone The subject and object in I m wasted on this sword are inverted A couple homonym ish errors also slipped through blacksmiths use bellows, not billows, and I believe inclusions in a gemstone can cause it be occluded clouded.Some of these issues probably resulted from the editorial process itself, possibly arising only in the final draft , but that just means it needed onepass I know many people can happily read right past these sorts of goofs, but I m far from alone in being distracted by them They re not enough to keep me from reading fun tales with sympathetic leads, but they will keep my ratings below 4.5 5

    Up to date, I finished two of this author s books and loved them I also like that this series are truly stand alone They are a series because they happened in one created world.Still this one is not my cup of tea I dig the H from the very beginning and wants him to have that happily ever after Wrongful imprisonment and emotional torture inserted here Then we are introduced to his ex who abandoned him like garbage when he needed her the most and is being set up to be his happily ever after Up to date, I finished two of this author s books and loved them I also like that this series are truly stand alone They are a series because they happened in one created world.Still this one is not my cup of tea I dig the H from the very beginning and wants him to have that happily ever after Wrongful imprisonment and emotional torture inserted here Then we are introduced to his ex who abandoned him like garbage when he needed her the most and is being set up to be his happily ever after Ah, NO Maybe if I was shown the shitty ex perspective first, maybe I can swallow this set up Right now, I have my own crazies in real life to relive them in my readings Clearly, I am in the minority here since a lot liked this book

    3.5 stars Rounded down because I didn t care for Kennedy She did very little to redeem herself in my eyes Reed could have done so much better.

    Uneven, with chances for brillianceReview by Carolyn Bragg 2 1 2 StarsThere were parts of this book that I really liked, but they got lost in the grand scheme planned for the whole angel devil demon thing Reed had so muchdepth to plumb, giventime to work through his issues Instead, everything shifts into fast forward and the story skips over big chunks of time I would have enjoyed exploring It felt like I was watching a condensed movie of a book Explanations for things seemed a Uneven, with chances for brillianceReview by Carolyn Bragg 2 1 2 StarsThere were parts of this book that I really liked, but they got lost in the grand scheme planned for the whole angel devil demon thing Reed had so muchdepth to plumb, giventime to work through his issues Instead, everything shifts into fast forward and the story skips over big chunks of time I would have enjoyed exploring It felt like I was watching a condensed movie of a book Explanations for things seemed a bit over done and confusing sometimes as though attempting to make up for wiping out big swaths of events and time that had actually passed.In my opinion, a heavy edit of angel content and parental heritage angst would have improved the book immensely We were SO clear about the 6 grandparent thing that I didn t think we needed to go over it again and again and again copy and paste a fewand again s to insert there , but what do I know And yes, the happy couple were hot for each other It was crude in places, honestly, when I was trying so hard to see them as affectionate, and humorous, and loving And the f bombs sad stage props whenthoughtful writing would have beeneffective.There were some funny things, and I wanted so much to like this book I do like Reed and Kennedy, and Samantha, but the negatives were stacked pretty heavily on the other side of the balance With the disappointing wrap it in a bow battle, and the I won t spoil it pet events along with the author s penchant for fake gritty language and endless repetition of certain details, I don t think I could survive another book I s too bad

    I will admit that the beginning of this was on aserious note than the other books before it I was pretty sure there was nothing the author could do to get me to like Kennedy I really liked Reed and didn t think Kennedy deserved a second chance But somewhere along the way, I ended up forgiving for Kennedy and then rooting for these two as a couple The build up to the final battle was awesome but the actual conflict wassubdued than I had anticipated I really like how each book we I will admit that the beginning of this was on aserious note than the other books before it I was pretty sure there was nothing the author could do to get me to like Kennedy I really liked Reed and didn t think Kennedy deserved a second chance But somewhere along the way, I ended up forgiving for Kennedy and then rooting for these two as a couple The build up to the final battle was awesome but the actual conflict wassubdued than I had anticipated I really like how each book we explore different parts of this world Great series
