Publisher's Summary

I ate six seeds. Now I owe six months of debt to a dangerously sexy Fae hitman.

I'd had everything a dryad could want - a job, an apartment, and a scandalous human boyfriend-

Until I stole the wrong fruit from the wrong Fae.

Dragged into the Seelie underworld of deception and lies, I do anything he commands: steal, spy, even fight as we hunt down a notorious Fae fugitive.

Not exactly the fun I was looking for, despite the intense attraction between us. Between my new boss, the cold-as-ice Unseelie fixer, and a gorgeous Wild Hunter, I'm pulled into a world where danger is the only guarantee.

But when the mission ends, I may not want to leave.

Contains mature themes.

❤❤❤

I love this book by Cate Corvin! What's even better is Amy narrating this book making it come to life. Definitely recommend giving this book a listen to and can't wait for more in the series to see what journey the author takes us on next!

YA story trying to pass as an adult novel

Mediocre at best. I really couldn’t enjoy this book. The writing was juvenile at best. The sex scenes were done terribly and awkward, it made me feel uncomfortable listening.m so much so I had to skip. I NEVER had to do that before. The MC was naive and fell into each males arms like a love struck puppy. She was weak and naive, just not the type of women I like my MC’s to be. She is supposed to be this agent that spies but she’s clumsy and awkward, nobody would meet her and think “yes she’d make the PERFECT SPY!”. Her first mission she took a roofied drink ON PURPOSE and had to be rescued, of course, by the manly man that is much to possessive for knowing the MC for a day. And the boys, I mean “men”, just fell to easily “in love” with her. As soon as the main men meet the MC, they were instantly intrigued by her. Why?? She’s not interesting?? Not in a world full of beautiful high blooded fae??? The author makes it seem like the men have never seen a women before meeting the MC. Having her turn strong powerful men into boys, because that’s how they acted around her. Like teenage BOYS. High school crushes. Also, Was this suppose to be a reverse harem? I have no idea. Some of the story made absolutely no sense like the author was trying to throw in YA info because she could. For example, Robin gave the MC a potion so she can’t speak his name to his enemies but she instantly tells Gwen, another man, who he is the second time she meets him. But then she couldn’t tell any of her friends and would think “oh I can’t speak of Robin because of the potion”. It made no sense. The narration was ok but it made the MC sound younger and therefore dumber than the author was trying to accomplish. She also has no clue how to do male voices. She put on accents for different females but all the males sounded the same.

surprised

I wasn't expecting to like this book as much as i did. The story flowed really easily for me.
The narrator was excellent! She really gave personality to the characters. A bad narrator will make a good book too hard to follow.

Fae and Humans living together... oh yes!



This is the type of book I would list as "easy". The concept isn't too overly dramatic or complicated. You start reading and you're there in the city with Fae everywhere and human tourist being annoying. This book doesn't have the Fae following the common faery rules such as not being able to tell a lie. I'm OK with that but I think at least that one rules makes the Fae cone off as more clever. They trick you without lying.

The main character, Brialynn, is an outcast from her home and is really looking to fit in while working in this new city. With all Urban Fantasies, there is a mystery to solve. Enter our male characters.

The males are where I had issues with this one. I don't like when authors use Famous Fae names but give them menial roles. The characters names being Robin Goodfellow and Jack Frost... too famous for their roles ... especially for a book where humans are aware of magic. Everyone has read or saw movies about Goodfellow and Frost. Unless you make it so those things don't exist, it just feels odd that these characters would be doing what they are assigned in the story. But I'm picky... I know it. I ignored it and still enjoyed the book.

Other notes:

Female: I am not sleeping with you!... but three chapters later they sleep together... smh

The Left Hand of the Queen tells Brialynn that after drinking this potion she won't be able to speak his name to his enemies... well that's dumb... she can tell every other person in the world??? What if someone becomes your enemy later or what if someone not your enemy tells someone who is your enemy???

Overall, I liked the story and plan on continuing the series.

Narration was good.
