Summary

All Shane wanted was to get away from the wreckage of his career for a while. He picked New York City to provide him with a distraction from his early, unwanted retirement from the police force.

New York City delivered, distracting him with three corpses and a miniature llama with a spitting problem and an attitude. If he wants to return to a normal life, he’ll have to face off against a sex-trafficking ring targeting the woman of his dreams, ancient vampires, murderous criminals, his parents, and an FBI agent with a hidden agenda.

Some days, it isn’t easy being an ex-cop.

Warning: This novel contains excessive humor, action, excitement, adventure, magic, romance, and bodies. Proceed with caution.

great crazy book

This was my first book by this author and series and i got it due to reading the reviews.The beginning was a little confusing for the first couple of chapters; till you figure out what's going on. After that you get the gist of how an ex cop became involved with an alpaca. Bodies seem to fall dead everywhere. It has great twists and turns that I didn't actually figure out all the bad guys until the fight at the end. The FBI, the mob, shifters, vampires, werewolves, and plenty more supernatural creatures are involved. Settle down and prepare to enjoy lots of laughs. The narrator does a great job of distinguishing the different characters (male and female).

Torn on my rating.

This book was funny, however making light of sex trafficking is not.

“You’d probably make a good sex slave...with appropriate training.”
“...add in the scar and your probably classify as exotic.”
“You should pose for us to see if your physique is good enough for the sex trade.”

These were one part lines between the main hero character and his parents and god father. There were other times were it was made light of as well. Forced into sex and drugs against ones will is never funny, nor should it be made light of. It’s a real and raw epidemic. Shame on RJ Blain for that.

If you can get past that element of the book, a sheered werewolf dad with a bikini line, a spitting POed alpaca, and parents that are over the top, this book was funny.

The narrator Wesley Nelson was amazing at the voices and good at capturing the humor and moods. I’ll definitely be looking up what other books he narrated.

Awesome book

This was my first experience with a book that was a magical romantic comedy with a body count. I laughed. I enjoyed this book a lot. I look forward to the next one I relisten to them often

Good Book and Good Listen

I really liked this book. It was an interesting story and at times weird but a good weird. There were a couple of instances where there was a jumped in the story that was confusing but overall I enjoyed what I listened too.

I loved this narrator. he did an excellent job with pacing/timing even at 1.5 speed.

Unique world building, great story.

This book is great. Unique world building, interesting 3-D characters, snark abounds (yay!), unpredictable - a plus for a woman who's read (listened to, same thing) at least a book a day over some 60 years, great story.
I keep trying to figure out how to describe this book, and the series, without spoilers. if you want spoilers, read most other reviews. I can't. I can say that this has become one of my few re-read series.
The narrative is very well done except for one thing, learn how to pronounce lycanthropy and Hecate, among others.

great book made even better with this narrator

I have actually read this book and I thought it was pretty good but it was so much information and hard to understand. but with this audible and this narrator it was fantastic. it made the book so much better and this narrator has all the different voices I thought he did a wonderful job and he even made the book that much more.

Ummmmm.... No.

I really tried with this book. I liked the quirky premise, llamas are fun and the guys attitude was alright. But the parents were annoying and over stereotyped and a story that makes light of human trafficking is not for me. So. I returned it.

I think this story is my favorite of the MRCwBC

I love this book and Shane is one of my favorites from this series.

The narration could have been better it was a little on the serious side for the light moments. I did not like the voice he decided on for Ernesto at all. And i think he confused Quinton and Larry.

That said it is still one of my favorite stories. RJ Blain did so well with this one.
