Special Offers by M.L. Ryan
Hailey Parrish is quick-witted, irreverent, and hasn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?
Hailey doesn't date all she does is work and read. Coming home one day she realizes books are taking over her apartment and she decides to take advantage of a special off and buy an ereader. When she gets the ereader she realizes she has gotten more than she bargained for. It has the essence of Sebastian Kess in it. He is a man with magical abilities from another dimension that just loves women. Now he is trapped in her body and she has to find a way to get him out before he drives her crazy. If he doesn't drive her crazy Alex Sunderland will. He is another supernatural and is out to help Hailey free Sebastian and to find where Sebastian's body is. They have two problems criminals want to stop them and Alex and Hailey are attracted to each other. With Sebastian in her body things soon become strange.
Hailey is a character any book lover can feel in common with with some things. All us book lovers have books that can lead to sometimes them taking over our house. What I liked about her is you felt connected right away with her. When faced with the fact that she has a spirit trapped in her body she didn't freak to bad. She accepts things and sometimes the banter between her and Sebastian can be hilarious. She does some crazy things to try and keep him from seeing more of her than she would like. Sebastian is a funny character he is a womanizer all the way and some of the things he says will have you laughing so hard. Then we have Alex. He is the perfect man for Hailey even if she doesn't want to date this guy makes it hard not to want him. He is smart, sweet and very sexy. I love the chemistry between these two.
I will just say this is a wonderful idea for a book. A spirit trapped in a ereader that gets pulled into a body. That is so awesome and it gets your attention. The story is a very smooth read that has a little bit of it all magical abilities, comedy, some romance, a mystery and action. You know who the criminal is but you have to figure out where the body is and who to trust. this book will show you can't always trust the people at your side. I really enjoyed watching Alex and Hailey fall for each other while trying to hold back because of Sebastian. If you want a different book that you can't put down I would try this one. The author does a fantastic job with the whole thing and it is a magical read.
