review 1: The cover for Boyfriend from Hell threw me. It brought to mind this sultry vixen who's a bitch, and has a lesson to learn. That impression could not have been farther from the truth. The heroine is humble, intelligent, caring and in the midst of magic and mayhem she doesn't understand. Throw in a hot boss who isn't what he seems, a boyfriend who needs help and a group of crazy friends and it was a fast paced, unique read. I can't wait to read the second book in the series. The world Ms. Quaid has created is original and quirky.
review 2: This book was entertaining as long as I read very quickly. The premise - that in this alternate universe, chemical pollution had caused mutations of the super/supernatural kind in those who live or work in "the Zone," where ch
... moreemicals had spilled - is interesting and allows for many potential characters and events, exciting and/or funny. The protagonist is a fairly appealing woman in her mid-twenties who is self-reliant and mouthy. If the writing were better - a lot better - I would have happily given this book 3 1/2 stars. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the "Jamie Quaid" is apparently the pen-name of a New York Times "bestselling author," the writing is pretty bad and I give it 2, maybe 2 1/2 - reading at a fast clip. less

ugh so wanted to like this book, but it felt like as mash up and no smexy scenes :(
If I could give a book more than 5 stars this one would get it.
Fun read! I am definitely getting the next.
Extra half star for fun.
