Felony Ever After…Release Day Event and Review

Profile portrait of businessman working on laptop in black suit at studio


Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen a cab is not a normal way to meet someone. Damn it if that tattoo-covered would-be felon isn’t everywhere now, and lighting everything on fire under her skirt.

His name is Hudson Fenn, and he’s frustratingly impossible to pin down. He works as a bike messenger, but has the manners of a prince—along with a strange tendency toward breaking and entering. As much as Verity knows he’s not her type, and likely to land her in jail, she can’t help but find her truest self when they’re together.

Can she be brave enough to give Hudson a real chance? Will he be bold enough to reveal the man beneath the ink, or will his secrecy doom their connection? Also, WTF is the deal with Verity’s boss? No less than thirteen of your favorite romance writers have teamed up to tell this sexy, wacky, snort-inducing tale. With them you’ll visit the world’s most irritating office, a VIP room of questionable cleanliness, and the fanciest apartment a bike messenger has ever inhabited, but you’ll still never see this ending coming.


My Review:

Ok, so I’ll admit when I read that 13 individual authors were writing one story, I was a tad nervous.  I mean how could they make that work?  Each author has their own voice and puts their individual flavor into their characters, so how could 13 people write two main characters and two secondary characters?  Well, I’m not sure of the how but I can tell you they freaking nailed it! This book was so damn good and the characters were amazing.  I loved it all from start to finish and I’m so sad I’ve already finished it.

This group of authors, many I’ve read and am a huge fan of, created a hero and heroine I just adore.  Hudson is such a dichotomy and the layers that make up his being are complex and amazing.  Sure he’s hot, sexy, tattooed, and charming but he’s also got a huge heart and a hidden side I swooned over.  The authors did an amazing job at revealing what makes Hudson Hudson.  We were introduced to so much but kept in the dark about a few key parts of his life and I loved the pace in which we get to find out what makes him tick.  SO good! Verity is equally fabulous.  She’s funny as hell and is also wonderfully multifaceted.  I loved her relationship with her friend and co-worker and her insane work situation.  She had me laughing too many times to count and I loved it.  Together these two are off the charts smoking hot.  But where they really shine is in the quiet and tender moments.  When they’re getting to know each other.  Those times are both sweet and at times funny but make up a twenty-first century fairy tale like nothing I’ve ever read.

The extra added touch was the twitter convo between Verity and Hudson that end each chapter.  I loved it so much and it totally gave this book and extra oomph that made it even more special.  But the best part about that?  Getting to the end of the book and seeing that I can actually follow them on Twitter and enjoy more interactions even after finishing the book!  So amazing and so much fun!

From beginning to end this was a unique and enjoyable reading experience. The collaboration went off without a hitch and I highly recommend this book to any romance fan!  Thank you, ladies, for one hell of a read!
