Synopsis:Life isn’t exactly normal for Eva Parker: the stronger Eva’s emotions, the faster nearby electrical devices die. Eva can’t have a cell phone, use a computer, or be in a car for more than a few minutes without killing it. Dealing with her electricity-killing curse makes living in modern-day Los Angeles complicated enough for Eva—and that was before she was blackmailed into hiding a stolen baby elephant and partnered with Hudson, a sexy electrical engineer Eva just met.
Dodging repeated attempts on her life made by ruthless corporations hunting the elephant is easier for Eva than quelling her growing affection for Hudson, and while protecting an elephant is hard, controlling her curse is a lot harder. However, Eva must do both, because if she lets her emotions free and falls in love with Hudson, neither of them will survive.
Enchanting and quirky, Tiny Glitches fuses electrifying romance and high-voltage suspense in a rollicking adventure.
3 out of 5 (good)
This book promises "electrifying romance and high-voltage suspense in a rollicking adventure." What I read had the potential to be great, but in the end, it all became just too chaotic and confusing, and the rollicking adventure became farcical as Eva got kidnapped or put into cuffs again, and again.
There are many stories within this one book, all overlapping and jumbled together, so it is hard to stay on track. You have the supernatural element of Eva, the hotness of Hudson, the craziness of Kyoto (the elephantini), and that's without even mentioning Atlas, Edmond, and the ninjas! There are also the surrealistic divinations that Eva sees, which just helped to confuse me even more.
If you are after something that is completely different, and full of humour, then I can recommend this book. I will say that although most will enjoy it, it will take a specific reader to LOVE it.
