Publisher's Summary

Black Friday, book 1:   
In his junior year at college, the only things on Sean's mind are doing his homework and getting out of college to get a real job. A gamer and a bit of a nerd, Sean's philosophy in life has been to keep his head down and get his work done: He doesn't have the time or money for anything more after his father died in an industrial accident when Sean was eight.   
But when a failed kidnapping attempt leaves him with a gaping hole in his memory, his oldest friend dead, and his mother missing, Sean suddenly finds his whole world turned upside down as he's thrust into the hidden world of magic and the supernatural. Apparently he's now wanted, dead or alive, by all of the magical societies, though he has no idea why. About the only thing going for him is what his friend did for him just before he died and the cute track star who lives in the room next to his, who has suddenly taken a very personal interest in his problems.   
Perfect Strangers, book 2:   
During his junior year in college, Sean finds himself suddenly dropped into the middle of a world that he didn't even know existed. A secret world of magic and magic users, lycanthropes, goblins, and all the other things that go bump in the night. To make matters even more difficult, the very same magic users who had Sean's father killed now believe that Sean will somehow inherit his father's work when he turns 21, which is just a few days away. 
Needless to say most of the magic users' councils seem to be in two camps: The first camp wants him dead. The second camp wants him captured and will probably kill him after they've learned his secrets. The only solution Sean sees to any of this is to finish his father's work, the very thing that got his father killed. But in order to do that, Sean must first find out just what his father was working on! He's also going to need to learn magic himself, find a safe place to stay, raise some money, and gain a lot of allies.   
Fortunately for Sean he's got two good women at his side: Roxy, a cheetah lycanthrope with a lot of experience in fighting; and Jolene, a tantric witch with more than a few connections in the supernatural black market.

Sumtime' s you just want to have fun!

This is a fun, sexy male fantasy, with I believe tongue firmly planted in cheek! That being said I found the plot interesting, and the characters (if a bit two dimensional) entertaining. I found myself wanting to know what happens next!. I think another reviewer described it as fast food literature in the best possible way, and I find that I agree in the fact that sometimes you just want a good burger and fries. not every thing has to be China plates and 13 pieces of silverware. Just as not all books need to be To Kill A Mockingbird. it is a fun romp, yes this book has adult material in it so please know that going in. I hate when people bag on a book or movie when they know, going in, they will find some of the themes offensive. just relax and don't take yourself or the book to seriously, and enjoy.

Wow, I want the next one.

This is a cheap, cliche, fast-food driven work of erotic fiction. I mean this in the absolute BEST way possible.

The characters are a little 2D and the writer knows it. But I still end up caring about what happens to them. This is partly due to the excellent narration.

I honestly wish each individual book was longer and more fleshed out with action/ erotic scenes. And other species interactions could be played up a bit. That said I'm happy with it and I will buy the next one.

It's no Bill the vampire. No real humour.

This book is honestly very slow and quite forgettable. I didn't care about any character.
