A Review of Kiss at Your Own Risk by Stephanie Rowe

4.5 Fangs for Kiss at Your Own Risk

He needed a killer woman...

Blaine Underhill is one lucky man after having recently escaped a century and a half of imprisonment at the hands of an evil witch. Now he's determined to save his still-enslaved friend, but in order to do so, he'll need the help of one of the world's most lethal women.

She was drop dead gorgeous, literally...

Trinity Harpswell is sick and tired of being a Black Widow. Having managed to go three years without accidentally killing anyone she loves, she's one short week away from freeing herself from this killer curse forever.

When Blaine tracks her down and convinces her to help him, little does Trinity know that the next seven days are going to be murder!

My review:

If you like your paranormal romance served with a side of wit, a dash of danger and mixed up with killer humor then this is the book for you.

Stephanie Rowe has introduced us to a wicked cast of characters who are willing to do just about anything for love- including kill.

Trinity was kidnapped as a baby- by who or why no one knows. After missing for six months she was found in a pet shop snuggling with puppies none the worse for wear- at least they didn't think so until Trinity turned sixteen fell in love...and killed the poor guy.

After adding another three corpses to her pile Trinity has managed to go almost five years without killing. She has one week to go. If she lasts the week the curse is broken. If she kills again- she'll never be free of the curse. Five kills and you're a Black Widow forever.

She's sure she can make it through this one last week without falling in love and killing the poor guy.

Then all hell breaks loose and her dad gets turned into bubblegum. To save his life she's offered a deal.

Enter Blaine.

He's just escaped from the clutches of a crazy evil witch- that's had her nasty mitts on him for 150 years forcing him to do all sorts of emasculating things- like cross stitch and knit. In a escape attempt he and his fellow prisoner/friend Nigel escape but their bud Christian gets sucked back into he clutches of evil witch Angelica- death's grandma. They want Christian back but how?

Trinity. If he can get her to kill the witch he can have his friend back.

The two of them falling in love never occurred to either one.

Will Trinity kill for love?

The story is sometimes humorous, the situations the characters find themselves in can get downright bizarre and the whole book is a tad bit zany... in a fabulous way that'll keep you turning the pages just to see what mayhem and mishaps will happen next.

An excellent, fast paced, high energy read full of twisted and wild characters that end up in really weird situations. You'll love it.
