Elements of Mischief
C.M. Stunich & Tate James
(Hijinks Harem #1)
Publication date: October 4th 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Four hunky, supernatural plumbers.
One reluctant, slightly drunk human.
A match made in heaven…or in the bathroom, rather.
My name is Arizona Smoke, and I’m the proud owner of a house haunted by my dead Gram, best friend to a cocktail dress loving werewolf, and apparent soul mate to four plumbers who also happen to be elemental dragons. Besides rippling pectorals, tattoos, and…uh, nice, long pipes, the guys also have control of the elements.
Supernatural law (whoever heard of such a thing anyway?) dictates that since I stumbled upon the guys in their alternate forms, I have to marry them. All four of them. Oh, and apparently one lousy (okay, awesome) night of sex means that I’m an elemental, too—and no amount of magical penicillin can cure this disease.
All I wanted was hot running water and toilets that flushed, but now I’m dealing with monsters lurking in the sewers, supernatural politics, and four penniless (but totally hot) plumbers living in my crumbling old Victorian.
I’m Ari Smoke, wine aficionado, ex-barista, and a girl who is completely out of her element.
Having four hot husbands is nice…but the death threats, not so much.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
So I can fully admit that is was the cover art that drew me to this book but after reading the synopsis I got really curious. This made me decide why not and give it a try though this is a new genre to me that I was not sure I would be comfortable with. To make a long story short I loved every single minute of this book (though less plumber jokes would have been useful as this seemed a little overdone) and was upset when I ran out pages. Meet Arizona who due to circumstances is stuck in her dead grandmas rundown house with no working plumbing. Broke she calls for an estimate but since she cannot really pay he refers her to another group that may be able to help her. This leads to some crazy stuff as the plumbers are really part of the supernatural community that she has no clue exists. What follows is a crash course of this new world mixed with some really steamy (yet remarkably well done) sex scenes to create a fast paced story that I was unable to put down (I only went to bed because I had to but it made me sad to do so). Ghost granny had me cracking up and Arizona's reactions throughout the whole thing are so realistic are I couldn't help but giggle or agree with her. This is a great team of writers that can obviously write an incredible book together. If you enjoy steamy supernatural romance novels you have to give this a try even if you are new to reverse harems in general. I loved it so much I have to give it 5/5 stars. Now to get my hands on the next installment in the series so I can keep up with what is going on.....
Tate James was born and raised in the Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand) but now lives in Australia with her husband, baby and furbaby.
She is a lover of books, red wine, cats and coffee and is not a morning person. She is a bit too sarcastic and swears too much for polite society and definitely tells too many dirty jokes.C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind – especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.
