Elements of Mischief - Tate James and C.M. Stunich

Elements of Mischief

Four hunky, supernatural plumbers.
One reluctant, slightly drunk human.
A match made in heaven…or in the bathroom, rather.
My name is Arizona Smoke, and I’m the proud owner of a house haunted by my dead Gram, best friend to a cocktail dress loving werewolf, and apparent soul mate to four plumbers who also happen to be elemental dragons. Besides rippling pectorals, tattoos, and…uh, nice, long pipes, the guys also have control of the elements.
Supernatural law (whoever heard of such a thing anyway?) dictates that since I stumbled upon the guys in their alternate forms, I have to marry them. All four of them. Oh, and apparently one lousy (okay, awesome) night of sex means that I’m an elemental, too—and no amount of magical penicillin can cure this disease.
All I wanted was hot running water and toilets that flushed, but now I’m dealing with monsters lurking in the sewers, supernatural politics, and four penniless (but totally hot) plumbers living in my crumbling old Victorian.
I’m Ari Smoke, wine aficionado, ex-barista, and a girl who is completely out of her element.
Having four hot husbands is nice…but the death threats, not so much.


My Review

I have to admit that when I first started this, I wasn't convinced. Everything seemed to be happening very quickly with copious amounts of alcohol. I did think that maybe this just wasn't a book for me, but I was wrong. I'm glad that I didn't let that initial thought put me off because the more that I got into the book the more I enjoyed it.

This isn't a hugely intense, character-driven, complex novel. It doesn't take itself too seriously and to be honest, neither should you. Once I got into the swing of the style of the book and the almost continual plumber puns, then I found I actually quite enjoyed it. 

If you're looking for a serious romance, with deep and complex characters, then you might be a bit disappointed. If you want something fairly fun, then I think that you'll probably enjoy this. From my initial misgivings, I actually reached the point where I was dying to know what was going to happen next and can't wait to read the next book in the series.
