Hailey Parrish is quick-witted, irreverent, and hasn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the “special offers” that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?
This was a fun and humourous story. The humour often runs to sarcasm and one-liners, which kept with the light mood.
The cover looks YA, but this is definitely an adult romance. It was almost a clean story, except there is one scene that is decidely not clean. The rest of the story is so light and clean feeling, that I wish the romance was too.
The ending had a good conclusion, and a good opening for the next book in the series. My exact thought at the last scene was “ooh, that can’t be good”.
Overall, this was a highly entertaining story. I wish it was completely clean, but other than that, I enjoyed it immensely as a great getaway story.
