Suck It Up Buttercup: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel (First Fangs Club Book 2) by Kristen Painter - Review
At this point I think anyone who has seen anything about me anywhere probably knows I LOVE Kristen Painter books and this one was no different. Although some of her other series are very dear to my heart, this particular heroine definitely resonates with me in a different way, as I am sure she does with many "not 20 something anymore" women out there.
Book 2 picks up literally right where book 1 ends, which doesn't always work, but in this case it really allowed me as the reader to feel that I was getting to follow Belladonna's complete journey and transformation. I LOVE that with the vampire stuff being all new to her she asks the questions that often we as readers want to know to (especially as most paranormal worlds have their own unique rules). She's not afraid to let people know that "There should be a handbook for that!". Fans of book 1 will definitely appreciate where book 2 leads you. Personally I prefer it as with all the background set the book is able to move at a faster pace, and I do love a little action (of the fighting kind in this case), and showing that although family is important, sometimes that family can be formed from the outside.
I do feel the need mention that this definitely has a little more of a cliffhanger than the first, which is different from the Nocturne Falls series with each completely wrapped up with an HEA - but the main story is completed and it definitely isn't one that I would classify as "throw the book worthy" (I know you readers all know what I mean) - more like just hurry up and get the next one out required!
An easy, 5 stars from me and my official Melanie's Muses Approved status! (Yes this is new - Yes this is the first time I am posting it - Yes there will be more details soon!)
How To Enter
I love unusual swag giveaways - and it doesn't get more unusual that 1 of a kind! That's right - this is a one of kind collectors swag item! (And comes with a letter stating so!)
During the Live on Sunday April 19th we revealed the title for Susan's Ever Chase Book 7 (You can see the clip of when it happened below).
And that led to this - a very special giveaway! Musers are a very unique fandom (I think) - so we thought why not offer the chance to WIN the actual announcement and envelope (With Melanie's Feur De Lis Wax Seal).
To enter - leave a comment ON THIS POST ON THE WEBISTE (comments left on shares around other social media WILL NOT COUNT) - Telling us why you want to win the swag!!
The winner will be the person in the comment we think is most deserving and will selected by Susan and Myself . Winner will be announced during the Live show on May 10th (and then posted here on the blog as well on the 11th). Full rules listed at the bottom of the post. Good luck everyone!
