I downloaded this book when it was released Friday and devoured it that day. We met Rhett briefly in Stud In The Stacks and Eloise in a couple of Pippa’s books. This can definitely be read as a standalone, though, with no feelings of “I’m missing something here.”
Rhett is a Navy SEAL, sidelined Stateside by a mission that went bad. Eloise is drummer for Bro Code, the all-girl boy band cover band made up of Rhett’s sister Parker, Sia from Mister McHottie and Willow from Rockaway Bride. Her bandmates/friends know she is an Internet wizard, but not a lot about her life or her story. They don’t even know where she actually lives.
Eloise and Rhett hook up at Parker’s wedding reception, because Eloise assumes Rhett is leaving town again and she won’t have to deal with him and deal with messy things like feelings. Rhett is staying, however, and is fascinated by her.
“Fucking her would probably be like fucking a sugared-up elf from an alternate dimension where Santa was actually a motorcycle-riding badass with vigilante tendencies.”
Eloise uses the Internet to go after bad people. She discovers that the “lady” behind the latest direct sales craze is really a skeezy man who is charming the desperate housewives out of their money and ruining hundreds of lives, and she gets revenge by reallocating his money to charities and exposing him for the fraud he is. Suddenly, she is being threatened and must depend on Rhett to keep her safe.
What I liked: This is the funniest book I have read in a long time. I literally laughed out loud throughout the entire thing. Eloise is a firecracker, in a very good way. I also loved finally getting to learn a little more about her, and her relationship with her brother is heart melting.
What I didn’t like: It ended! Why did it have to end??
