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.

Paranormal Contemporary Romance
January 12, 2016
Paranormal romance is one of my favorite genres, as well as urban fantasy. I absolutely love this authors urban fantasy series, Madison Fox, Illuminate Enforcer, so it was a no brainer that I wanted to read a paranormal romance by her.
Eva has lived with a curse her entire life. She drains energy from anything electrical that she is anywhere near. This means she doesn’t own a tv, cell phone, regular phone, computer, or car. Her appliances and lights runs off of gas. She has guarded her secret her whole life for fear of someone wanting to use her gift or that the government would want to do tests on her. To make things even more interesting, the energy she drains, fuel the the things she sees surrounding people. Like little moving cartoons that show off a person’s emotions. Her life hasn’t been easy because of all this, but her Aunt Sophie raised her, and helped her control her “gift”, although it’s a gift nobody would ever want.
I am not sure exactly what I was expecting. Maybe something more like her UF series, but that is not what I got. The author completely changed it up. And actually I ended up enjoying the ride. And that’s because this was a totally wild ride of a book. I needed to totally suspend any sort of reality because some of it was a bit hard to swallow(the cartoons), but once I decided to just go with it, I had fun reading it. Ms. Chastain wrote a completely unique read for me and that’s really hard to do with the amount of paranormal books I read.
As far as the premise, it was so complicated that I don’t want to ruin anything. I will say that Eva ends up having to care for a baby elephant, one that she has to hide before it gets stolen. And that’s because there’s all kinds of groups that want the elephant. I totally fell in love with that elephant! And Eva totally fell in love with Hudson, an electrical engineer(of course)who manages to get involved with the elephant as well.
The humor was almost slap stick at times. I laughed out loud too many times to count, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was a romance, and a comedy, but it was also a mystery and a light thriller, as well. It’s not young adult, but I highly recommend it to adult romance fans that like a unique, funny, and yes, even sexy at times, read.
The review copy of this book was supplied by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
