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

My review on Goodreads + pic

The creation of such a book – 13 Authors, 1 story – is an amazing idea. I think it came out really great. It is remarkable, hilarious and lustful story. It doesn’t have an ordinary plot, you need to approach this with an open mind and you will have lots of fun.

“Are we breaking into somewhere else, Tattoo? I swear you’re determined to give me a Felony Ever After.”

It begins in the usual, unusual way (at the end of this story you won’t find anything unusual in this beginning simply). Verity creepy and weird boss kept her working late and she instead of subway picks taxi to get back home. Just to let another creepy tattooed man stopped her at the car door, and wants to share the ride. During the road when the taxi driver stuck and argues with another driver, handsome stranger jumps into the steering wheel of the taxi… and takes her home. Horrified of her desire for him and an unviable adventure with a stolen taxi she will be even more freaked out when he appears in her office as a new bike messenger with a mysterious box.

Hudson Fenn isn’t only tattoo bike messenger. He hides some secrets that you have to discover yourself. He is a prince charming and a bad boy in one person. Is it really possible to resist? I don’t think so! Verity is an hilarious character, and her posts on Twitter are simply the best. Their common chemistry flashed from the beginning, and then it only got better. Hot scenes are off the charts. And I found their relationship really enjoyable ride.

Then there are great secondary characters and, of course, a sparkly box. It only makes the reading even more addictive. And if you ever have any doubts about what a shortcut VIP means, here it is explained very well and in an interesting way.

It develops in an unexpected and surprising way, the merit of so many people who write the story, you never know what to expect in the next chapter and the ending is impossible to predict. Therefore, in my opinion, good advice is not to treat this story too seriously. The authors jump in ideas and pull such a web, that each next chapter is more difficult to untangle and to predict. I really admire those who had to get out of certain situations. And it really was entertaining to read and see how they handle it.

My personal feeling is that the more scene after scene was a direct continuation of the moment, it made reading better and better. I am happy to read more such books in the future.

If I’d recommend? Yes. Especially if you feel like read something modern and fun.
