(W)REC(K) A BOOK: Come Alive

It's one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It's another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray, convincing Perry Palomino to open herself to their burgeoning relationship has been more challenging than hunting ghosts, battling demons and stalking Sasquatch combined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Experiment in Terror show running is to take on a third partner in the form of the mysterious Maximus Jacobs - all while investigating a sinister voodoo sect in New Orleans - and you've got the perfect Southern storm and a recipe for disaster. Luckily, Dex has never been one to back down, even when his life - and heart - are on the line.

*seriously, there's only like- six sex scenes at the most and the book's only in the POV of a pervert...*
Okay, so not exactly the right book to start with, but start with Dark House! No sex, I swear.
It's kinda like Heller... ich glaube.

Karina Halle, my lovely, you did not disappoint!!!

Dex and Perry are high up on my Favorite Couples' List, right next to Barrons and Mac from the Fever series, and Bella and Edward from- well, I'm sure you know where.

Come Alive is from Dex's POV, and he is still the perverted asshole who's completely, whole-heartedly devoted to getting the lovely Perry to trust him again, and I just wanna devour the whole concept, it's so yummy. They've both matured so much in this book, and it definitely shows at the end. They go through a lot in New Orleans, but the draw to this book isn't the zombies or crazy-arse women with wide loads: it's Dex's devotion of disgustingly sweet and soul-deep love for Perry. And the appeal is that he isn't Prince Charming, he's rough around the mental edges and is such a major perv, but in the good sense, the sense that makes someone like him so devoted to such a good person like Perry. Kinda like Persephone and Hades meets 50 First Dates, except she remembers everything and they're American, not Greek Gods.

I don't know about the other editions, but my kindle version had a few errors and missing words, but the book was great, nonetheless. It flowed so nicely and there weren't any unnecessary details that sometimes drag on for so long that eventually you forget where it's going... but that's just me.

The only thing I didn't like was when that bitch Afro-something or Asmonia---whatever the hell her name is---used subtle magic to get him to feel attraction towards her during their short meetings. T_T Shame on your Rooster for even thinking of parading anywhere near another woman's backyard. Keep that thing under restraint. And as usual, Perry suspects the woman's bad, Dex thinks she's jealous, and what do you know? She's the bad guy. Boom.

Other than that, this book left me laughing and crying. Mostly crying. In the end I was all gushy on the inside so that makes up for the dehydration. :) Personally, some of her other books were creepier, but who cares about the creepiness when you're in Dex's mind? XD


My favorite quote from this perv:

I love you Perry. I love you so fucking much. And I'm losing myself. I'm losing myself to you
and I don't care anymore because there's never been a better feeling
in the whole fucking world. I love you.
So much. Too much.

Happy Reading :)
