Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Reviewer: Kati Lear
Katie’s Rating: 5+
I have a wonderful surprise for followers of Rage, Sex and Teddy Bears. On most Saturdays, I will be posting reviews from a wonderfully fresh new voice and YA blogger from Jagged Edge Reviews, Kati Lear. Katie is going to be posting a few of her adult reviews here and giving you guys a break from my ramblings. She also covers books that I haven’t or most likely won’t read. (although after reading this glowing review, I'm giving this one a go) I am absolutely thrilled for her input and need everyone to show her much love. Without further adieu, I give you Kati Lear.
Life in Marblehead has had a pleasant predictability, until Diesel arrives. Rumor has it a collection of priceless ancient relics representing the Seven Deadly Sins have made their way to Boston’s North Shore. Partnered with pastry chef, Lizzie Tucker, Diesel bullies and charms his way through historic Salem to track them down—and his criminal mastermind cousin, Gerewulf Grimorie. The black-haired, black-hearted Wulf is on the hunt for the relic representing gluttony. Caught in a race against time, Diesel and Lizzie soon find out that more isn’t always better, as they battle Wulf and the first of the deadly sins.
I love, love, love this book. One of the best Janet Evanovich books I have EVER read and I have read them all. It is an adult novel, but it is paranormal (Not sure of the rated R level). I love how Wicked Appetite is like a spin off of a Stephanie Plum novel (from a side novel within the series). She brought in Diesel and Carl the
monkey! (love them, my favorite characters out of all the Stephanie Plum novels! Except Ranger…) Of course you would kind of have to have read Plum Spooky to understand who Carl (A monkey that likes to play video games and flip people off) and Diesel (hot with a strange power) are, but the book is beyond worth it! It’s amazing and hard to put down, as well as fast paced. I am in love with the storyline. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series! (Unsure when that will be)
