What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
It’s not my fault!
My “Dizzy, time to get the heck out of dodge” senses are well-honed, so can you blame a gal for pounding pavement when a herd of hunks are hot on her trail?
Okay, maybe you can. Maybe it’s your dream to get tackled by a heaping helping of beefcake; hopelessly pinned beneath them, at the mercy of multiple sets of hands and lips and eyes trapping you and demanding attention. Me? I just want to make it through the day without doing too much damage.
Tornados, sinkholes, lightning strikes, explosions, a drain pipe full of bees… I’ve been there though them all. But it’s not my fault!
You see, I’m cursed to always be cursed. Somebody wants to get revenge on you when I’m in town? Well TOUGH LUCK because they’re getting revenge on me instead! Thank you for that weekend of all-foods-are-extra-spicy, unknown stranger. No, that’s okay, person-who-tried-to-make-someone-else-unable-to-wear-clothes-ever-again, I don’t mind a fine breeze between my lady bits. And to you, asshole casserole who tried to literally kill me last week? Well… you can get bent. That’s honestly just rude.
Usually my curse comes with a side of disaster, and after really, really hurting more than one person… well… I’ve been on a never-ending, cross-country, don’t-look-back-just-keep-on-running-away tour for pretty much forever. Sure, it’s lonely, but never setting down roots means never getting caught, or killed. At least I’ve got my furry best friend Aria-don’t know what I’d do without her.
Per usual, my hotel just happened to burn down this morning so it looks like I’d best get to gettin’ while the gettin’s still good, ya get it? Just one itsy-bitsy-teensie-weensie-purple-haired-and-no-bikini problem…. I may have accidentally sort of kind of tied myself to those hunks I mentioned earlier and may or may not literally be unable to go anywhere without at least one of them. Oops! And maybe I sort of kind of like them enough to not want them to get murdered in my superstorm of chaos. Double oops.
Sigh. Friggin’ Tuesdays, am I right?
This is a medium burn paranormal reverse harem romance with explicit scenes of violence, sex (all sex in this book is consensual), and abuse that may be triggering for some. There is mild M/M included in this book and will progress as the story does. It is the first book in a series within an overall world epic, but it does not end in a cliffhanger. Hope happily for now is your jam! Please be aware that this is recommended for readers 18+
Thoughts on I’m Cursed
There is sooo much to unpack in this novel. From a Female Heroine who is three shakes shy of sane to a grouping of men with more baggage and issues than their house can hold. Add in the pre-requisite curses, a stalking shadow, psychics and a wily waitress with just the right amount of humor and you have I’m Cursed…. a laugh a minuted, irreverent Reverse Harem that makes no apologies and offers no excuses.
Part of me LOVED this book, while another part of me was too busy shaking my head or trying to keep up to actually form a defensible opinion. Dizzy is a mind blender, meaning, her thought process wrecks your own and leaves you wondering just what you read… and why.
Despite that, or perhaps because of it, this was an engaging read that promises a bright future for Book 2. Happy reading!
I’m beaming as this chick sort of skips away because she’s weird, and I like me some good weird. (4%)
It’s a good thing I’ve got cutoff shorts on today, because running and getting all sweaty while wearing a dress is just asking for chub rub. Fucking hate chub rub. You ever had it? It’s like diaper burn for your inner thighs and it will RUIN your life. (11%)
We’re alive, we’re free, and we’re only a little bit sweaty. (35%)
Scars are proof we’ve survived something that tried to break us, but failed. (80%)
