My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Fast Burn, Paranormal RH

Down and Dirty

Interesting start to a new series, worth picking up on Kindle Unlimited.

What is it about?

(Blurb from Goodreads)

I was just minding my own business, trying to win in life (while in reality just barely passing) when I discovered the existence of a secret race, who think I’m the answer to their prayers.

The Mazza, they called me. Someone who bears the marks of all four houses of this mysterious people, holding untold powers. Every time a Mazza has appeared in their history it has signaled great change. Change they so desperately need when they are on the brink of war.

Their savior. Their Messiah.

More like scale tipper for whatever side holds the Mazza. I just wish I knew what this war is about and who the players are. Everyone is out to get me, manipulate me, own me.

Navigating the minefield I just stumbled into could very well cost me my life. Good thing I stumbled into a mistaken Uber full of men of said race who I can trust to help me navigate my new normal. Or can I?


I’m not 100% sure what my feelings are about this. There are plenty of humorous moments that made me laugh right out loud, but just as many that made me roll my eyes. She capitulated into the situation a bit too fast for common sense or reason, and the narrative is fairly weak in explaining why.

It’s steamy, though not stand out. I liked it, and I’m going to read book 2, if only to see the Sage/Rand situation resolve… but it’s not amazing, at least not yet. Maybe book 2 will change my mind?


First Person, Single POV

Ending Type


Steam Level

Fast Burn, not boiling but steamy.


  • Intriguing plot.
  • Sage… he’s awesome. And the only guy that really stands out.
  • Enough questions to lead well to book 2.


  • Girl…. seriously? What ARE you thinking?
  • Fated mates (even if they aren’t quite fated?) or not, things are just a bit too fast.
