I kept waiting for Erick Von Zipper to show up!
Lyric’s Accidental mate was recommended by a Goodreads friend as a fun, sexy, paranormal biker lite type read but this was not like any other MC I’ve ever come across.
It was entertaining in its own way, but this MC was just different. In fact, instead of an MC vibe going on, this gave off more of a California surfer club vibe. Think back to the old Annette Funicello/Frankie Avalon Movies. The one that most came to mind was Beach Blanket Bingo with The Ratz MC and their fearless leader, Erick Von Zipper.
Lyric I liked at first since she was presented a heroine who could take care of business, but she absolutely imploded when the chips were down and it completely ruined her for me. In fact, her implosion was so out of the blue and unexpected, it completely caught me off guard. I had to read the passage twice to make sure I didn’t miss something, like a massive head wound. It was bizarrely out of place.
I kind of felt sorry for the poor girl who got kidnapped by the rogue wolf pack. It felt like the rest of the group were constantly talking about who was playing grab ass with who instead of being real concerned about whether she was being made a chew toy or being violated while they decided on what to do about getting her back. Since they didn’t seem to take anything seriously, well anything but who was banging who, I had a hard time taking them seriously.
Barring the heroine’s implosion, the book had a certain campiness to it that I wasn’t sure was on purpose, but that did have me smiling a time or two. Even with all the issues, I can’t tell you I didn’t enjoy the book, I just thought it was…odd.
