Sara's Review: Don't Cheat Me (Nora Jacobs #2) by Jackie May
REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: Bluefields RELEASED: May 21, 2018 GENRE: paranormal, romance LENGTH: 297 pages FORMAT: ebook, paperback
One month after Nora’s violent induction to the dangerous supernatural side of Detroit, she’s finally settling into her new life as the underworld’s token human. All she wants to do is mind her own business, enjoy her new friends, and stay safe. But that’s easier said than done when she’s such an enigma to everyone around her.
Thanks to her unique psychic abilities, she’s garnered a reputation for being mysterious and powerful. When the alpha of a local werewolf pack asks her to help him figure out who is stealing from him, she can’t say no, even though getting involved in pack business could have deadly repercussions.
While tangled up in a heap of werewolf troubles, Nora can’t quite shake her old vampire problem, either. Henry is practically stalking her, Parker is breaking down the walls around her heart, and Nora’s blatant fear of the blood-sucking monsters is a delicious temptation for the natural predators.
Nora’s succubus friend, Cecile, believes throwing her a “coming out” party into underworld society is the best way to solve all of her problems, but Nora disagrees. If the vampires and werewolves don’t kill her, Cecile’s party planning definitely will.This is book 2 in the Nora Jacobs series and should be read after book 1. It is a slow burn reverse harem series. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
The description of this one is a “slow burn reverse harem series” I can see that. With Nora unusual ability to lure men to her she seems to be stacking up suitor and protectors left and right. So far I still wouldn't call it a romance, it is an Urban Fantasy. One that I am LOVING. Nora is settling into her world and starting to come into her own. Dare I say it? Starting to become a kick-ass chick? She isn’t there yet, but she is on the way. She still has to work through past trauma and learn to control her abilities. Yet, the mystery that Nora helps solve with her gifts is one that kept me guessing. I love it when I have no clue who the bad guys are. I love all of the characters but especially Nora, she is going on the mantle with all my other kick-ass ladies which include Rylee Adamson, Kate Daniels, Mercy Thompson, and Kara Gillian just to name a few. This is quickly becoming my new favorite series, and Jackie May can’t write it fast enough. I am giving it 5 Boundless Stars.
