Felony Ever After
A Domino Anthology by 13 Authors Release Date: March 22nd, 2016 Add to Goodreads Source: Authors eARC received in exchange of honest review Synopsis:
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.
Thirteen authors. One story. What a fantastic project for this crew of talented authors! I was super excited to find out that some of my favorite authors were writing a story together. Felony Ever After was so much more than a romance book! I got to fall in love all over again with the authors that I already follow and love so much, but I also got the chance to discover some new authors. This book is pretty crazy good and a reading journey that will leave your heart bursting with joy and a permanent smile on your lips. Verity and Hudson are THE couple to meet if you want a romantic, sexy and fun reading escape. A sassy country girl living in the big city meets tattooed bike messenger who not only steals a cab on the first night they meet, but every one of her single thoughts after that night. Verity is nervous about sharing a cab with a stranger, but she agrees to it. What happens next between them takes Verity by surprise. She never expected Hudson to be so charming. As days go by, Verity and Hudson share many moments together, but there is something Hudson is hiding from Verity. Will Hudson be ready to trust and reveal is secrets to Verity? I loved every single minute of my reading journey! Verity and Hudson are EVERYTHING!!! They make such a great couple and no matter where they are, sparks fly! Their chemistry is blazing hot and their banter is super addictive! I loved how each author wrote a part in this story. Each chapter comes with the name of the author who wrote it. That was super awesome because it gave me the chance to discover the writing style of the new to me authors. I’m definitely keeping and eye on them #BecauseNewAuthorsFeedMyReadingAddiction. This story was super sexy with a good dose of humor. I really loved the main characters of this story from the moment I met them. Verity is the kind of heroine I love to cheer for and I laughed so much with everything that she did or said. Don’t even get me started with Mr.Tattoo!!! Be prepared for a major swoon fest. You will be swooning left and right and will not be able to resist him. Book Town just got a new prince charming and he’s all kinds of sexy! I also the mystery behind the boxes Verity’s boss was getting. Oh my world!!! When I found out what he was receiving in those boxes I was left speechless!! Verity’s reaction to this whole situation made me laugh so hard I was crying #FreakyBoxes Felony Ever After, is the kind of story that you pick up when you are feeling down, want to come out from a major book hangover or when you feel like laughing out loud. Felony Ever after is filled with memorable characters, epic tweets and a story that would be epic on the big screen! OMG!!! That would be amazing!!! I can already see myself fangirling at the movies. I would bring my virtual pompoms to cheer for Verity and Hudson’s HEA. It was such a fun story to follow. I needed this story to balance all the emotional reads I have been reading lately. I highly recommend Felony Ever After. You are seriously missing out on a bunch of talented authors if you don’t pick this one up!
I give, Felony Ever After, 5 hilarious, romantic, swoony, sexy, fun stars!

Tijan I didn't start writing till later in life. I hope I'm doing it right, and if not, I'll continue to keep trying! Nothing special about me. I've got an English Cocker that I absolutely adore, a man I couldn't be without, and this insatiable need to keep writing the words, all the words! Katherine Stevens When Katherine Stevens isn’t writing, she can usually be found opening juice boxes and looking for lost shoes. Her kids keep her quite busy and always zig-zagging across the line of sanity. She is a lifelong Texan with a terrible sense of direction and even worse memory. She thinks life is entirely too hard if you don't laugh your way through it. As a child, she dreamed of being the most sarcastic astronaut in history, but her poor math skills and aversion to dehydrated food kept her out of the space program. Now she writes to pass the time until NASA lowers their standards. Your move, NASA.

She lives in West Virginia with her toddler son and husband. Her addictions include books, Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy, coffee, and Rock Music. Leisa Rayven Writing has always been a passion for Leisa, and even though she originally intended to be an actress, it wasn’t long into her time at drama school that she began writing plays.
Those plays were bad. Very bad. Well, her friends thought they were good, but that’s because they were always cast in them and any opportunity to be on stage was met with an obnoxious amount of enthusiasm. Since then, she’s honed her craft, and several of her plays have been produced and toured throughout Australia.
These days, playwriting has given way to fiction writing, and Leisa’s debut novel, BAD ROMEO, was published through Macmillan New York in December 2014. The sequel, BROKEN JULIET was released in April 2015, and the final book in Leisa’s Starcrossed series, WICKED HEART, will hit bookstores and kindles on May 3rd, 2016. The Starcrossed series has gained hordes of passionate fans all over the world, and the books have now been translated into eight foreign languages. Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet have also featured on international best seller lists in Brazil and Germany. Leisa Rayven lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three cats, and a kangaroo named Howard.
(Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.) Liv Morris USA Today bestselling author, Liv Morris, was raised in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. She now resides on the rock known as St. Croix, USVI with her first and hopefully last husband. After relocating twelve times during his corporate career, she qualifies as a professional mover. Learning to bloom where she's planted, Liv brings her moving and life experience to her writing. S.M. Lumetta S.M. Lumetta was born in Detroit, MI, and now resides in Brooklyn, NY. Since she was small, she has adored storytelling in all its forms, especially books and films. Sooner and later (yes, both), she figured out that since her love of words was overwhelming, she had no choice but to take the words in mind and put them onto paper, ebook, and the like. Romance is her favorite read, generally, but horror and crime novels are a close second. Ms. Lumetta has plans for future books in the former two genres. She also has a plethora of unnecessary t-shirts, a penchant for sarcasm, and a unholy love for the oxford comma. Her first full-length novel, YOU ARE HERE, is expected to release fall of 2016. Vi Keeland Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is an attorney and a New York Times, Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling author. Over the last three years, ten of her titles have appeared on the USA Today Bestseller lists and three on the New York Times Bestseller lists. J.M. Darhower J.M. Darhower is the USA Today Bestselling Author of paranormal/erotic/romantic suspense novels about the baddest bad boys and the ladies who fall in love with them. She lives in a tiny town in North Carolina, where she churns out more words than will ever see the light of day. She has a deep passion for politics and speaking out against human trafficking, and when she isn't writing she's usually ranting about those things. Nina Bocci Nina Bocci is a novelist, publicist, eternal optimist, unabashed lipgloss enthusiast, constant apologist, and a hopeless romanticist. She has too many college degrees that she's not using and a Lego addiction that she blames on her son. Bella Aurora USA Today Bestselling author Bella Aurora was born in the land down under. At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown’s Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance. Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love. Humorous romance novels. Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles. Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February this year Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love. With words. With writing. With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored. Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author. Bella has since published nine books including the Friend-Zoned series, Willing Captive, the Night Fury serial, Raw, About Last Night and Lev.
