Don’t Cheat Me (Nora Jacobs Book Two)
One month after Nora’s violent induction to the dangerous supernatural side of Detroit, she’s finally settling into her new life as the underworld’s token human. All she wants to do is mind her own business, enjoy her new friends, and stay safe. But that’s easier said than done when she’s such an enigma to everyone around her.
Thanks to her unique psychic abilities, she’s garnered a reputation for being mysterious and powerful. When the alpha of a local werewolf pack asks her to help him figure out who is stealing from him, she can’t say no, even though getting involved in pack business could have deadly repercussions.
While tangled up in a heap of werewolf troubles, Nora can’t quite shake her old vampire problem, either. Henry is practically stalking her, Parker is breaking down the walls around her heart, and Nora’s blatant fear of the blood-sucking monsters is a delicious temptation for the natural predators.
Nora’s succubus friend, Cecile, believes throwing her a “coming out” party into underworld society is the best way to solve all of her problems. Nora disagrees. If the vampires and werewolves don’t kill her, Cecile’s party planning definitely will.
* This is book 2 in the Nora Jacobs series and should be read after book 1. It is a slow burn reverse harem series.
Tina J.’s Review
The second book in the series sees Nora up to her neck in werewolf politics and she has a crime to solve with the help of her new love interest Rook(as if she didn’t have enough men sniffing around) Rook is Wulf the bartenders brother and has a troubled past of his own that seems to call to Nora and lowers her guard enough for them to make a connection that believable and quite touching.
I gave it 4* because in comparison to the first one this wasn’t quite as good. Don’t get me wrong it’s a good read but Nora’s self doubt and inner monologue is a little repetitive. I loved T- man in the first book and was disappointed that he totally faded into the background in this book. I was left feeling slightly frustrated about Nora’s character development. She learns a lot about herself and how she feels for some of the men but her doubts mean it felt almost Ghostbird slow. I still have no idea who’s going to be in the harem I hope she’s a bit more feisty in the next book because I will definitely be reading it.
