It's hard not to see Guy Fieri on the cover of this book, but I think that Brett is a much different character than him. Looking past the looks (though Brett talks about his looks continuously throughout this book). Brett is a self-described "unscrupulous" male who has an above average sex drive among other things.
I would warn you away from this if you don't like sexist remarks towards women -- there are a lot of them (even if made in a joking way). And Brett himself could be offensive to... most of the women that I know. I think that he is written for a very specific inner male voice (and sometimes outer depending on the guy).
Looking past the sexual remarks and the personality issues that I had with Brett -- this story was better than I expected. I wasn't sure what I was getting into especially when the first hour was basically about his sexual prowess. After we moved past that, the story took a turn for the good. It got interesting and actually pulled me in. The "whodunit" aspect of a book about a private eye always intrigues me and this book had a good amount of it.
The narration was done by Travis Henry Carter -- who did it in what I would call a Boston accent. It seemed to match Brett's personality, though not the place that he resides and works. I don't know if this was covered in book one, but if it was that would make more sense to me. His narration was good though and his female voices were much better than most male narrators can pull off.
Overall, a book with a few flaws in it but something that I did enjoy reading. Something that was a little out of my wheelhouse with books and I'm glad I took a step out to enjoy it.
I was voluntarily provided with a copy of this book. It has not affected my review in any way.
