Special Offers by M.L. Ryan

So, this book is written from the point of view of the main character, Hailey, who is a 30 year old woman three years removed from a divorce with a fairly boring life. She’s become complacent, working a stable job and associating with coworkers, but no longer dating after a failed marriage that ended horribly (and frankly her ex husband should be thrown off a cliff). She’s an avid reader and finally decides to join the new age by purchasing a kindle at the reduced price, the basic one with special offers on it.
Upon receiving it, she gets a slight shock, which she thinks is static. Then she receives strange calls from a person claiming that she’d called him, when she’d made no calls at all. On her morning run, she meets a man named Alex, who she encounters again at a bar one night and for the first time, hears a strange male voice in her mind. This freaks her out and she runs, only for Alex to follow and she is brought into a world she’d never dreamed of. The voice in her head is Sebastian, something like a detective from the alternate world, in charge of hunting down others of his kind, Courso, that violate their laws. Alex is his partner and apparently Hailey had really made those calls, only Sebastian was in control and she had no memory of it. So through some means they now have to find Sebastian’s body to get him back into it.
Along the way, we are treated to the personalities of the three main characters. Sebastian is the average single male, I suppose, very sexually active and never exclusive with a seriously high sex drive that makes some awkward moments for Hailey. Hailey is a natural smartass, which makes me love her more. Alex is a bit old school but charming and loyal. We discover that Hailey actually gets Sebastian’s urges,which translates to her eating and drinking things she normally wouldn’t, and also having to deal with his overactive libido. It makes for some hilarious moments before we hit the seriousness of getting Sebastian’s body back and the struggle.
The only thing I had a problem with is the cliffhanger ending. Now I absolutely must read the next book because I didn’t see that ending coming.
