Review: "Special Offers" by M.L. Ryan (The Coursodon Dimension Series)

About the Book:

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 and stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is?


My Review:

I have to admit, I wasn't so sure the book would be something that interested me, but within just a few pages, I was pretty into it and laughing right along with Hailey! I'm not someone who likes a book that takes forever to get to the point. Books like that force me to put them down (or in this case, delete them from my Kindle), and never bother with attempting to read more.

In all honesty, I loved this book - part of this could be the fact I didn't find many, if any, typos. This makes me a VERY happy reader! The storyline was realistic, there was research done about Arizona (the Arizona-Sorona Desert Museum) as well as the inhabitants of the desert. I loved when Sebastian would silence Hailey with his quick retorts to her self-consciousness. The fact she would keep her eyes closed when changing or taking a shower the moment she realized he could see what she saw had me laughing out loud each and every time!

Alex and Sebastian make a great team. Both are stunningly handsome - Alex has a swimmer's body (lean and fit) with blonde locks, while Sebastian has that rugged, chiseled, and muscular body we all dream of - and both have very different personalities even though Sebastian is Alex's mentor. Of course both tend to be smartasses, which makes them a great addition to Hailey's witty personality. You can't help but fall in love with them!

I wasn't thrilled with the fact I was left with a cliff-hanger because I enjoyed the book so much, but it was a good place to end. :)

So I give it a 5 star review, not only for the spectacular writing skills M.L. Ryan offers, but for reeling me in to all the fun and chaos that is "Special Offers". I just wish the Kindle I'd been reading on had been nice enough to share the entertainment that is Sebastian. ;)
