This book, in which Breena, the main character, gets into a whole lot of trouble, whether she asks for it or not, feels soooooo true to how “one of us” would handle situations, making her more relatable to the women who mostly sit around and read these books. She still has a crush on the hot guy, but thinks that he is too hot for her, so she is suspicious, like she should be. None of her usual friends/cohorts are acting normally, so she has to depend, somewhat, on a new cast of characters who make her realize that she doesn’t need that job, that she thought she needed, nearly as much, and that she can form her own “merry band” of supernaturals who will be much more honest and faithful. I won’t talk about the facts of the book, but this second book is even better than the first one, and THAT would have been very difficult. RUN TO READ ALL OF MAYER’s books, if you like fun and laughter along with your paranormal action!
When I read the first book in this series, I liked it. I liked it a lot. But this second book has really fired me up! Breena is starting to find out what she is made of, and it’s not all sugar and spice – she is kicking it and taking no prisoners! As she is getting stronger, her group of trusted friends grows as well. And those friends are seriously a lot of fun – an emotional River Maid, a gentle Bigfoot shifter and a coquettish half siren to name some – and just add just enough humor to balance out the dark magic swirling around. It is whetting my appetite for the next Breena’s mission!
My one critique is some of the little details that were missed prior to publication which I’ve pointed out to Mayer through correspondence. Usually her books are so polished by the time they published that this took me by surprise. But aside from the few inconsistencies I found, the plot twists and intrigue of the story kept me hooked until the very end. Can’t wait to read the next one, and I’m especially excited to hear from Shannon that there will be at least 6 books in the series, if not 9.

This second book in the Forty-Proof series starts five days after book one, and though you don’t have to have read that, it enriches this one if you have.
Breena is a middle aged misfit, recently moved to her hometown of Savannah after twenty years, to try and get back her dead granny’s house that her ex husband stole from her whilst Bree was incarcerated in a mental health institute he’d put her in - because she could see things that don’t exist - according to ‘Himself’. The ex.
He gaslighted her, emotionally abused her and still won’t let her live life now they’re divorced. And to be honest he’s a weakly weasle of a man with a superiority complex - don’t worry, he’ll get his ‘reward’ as due.
There’s magic in Savannah and Bree now believes in it.
She’s smart, can fight, tell off werewolves and is not afraid to own her mature, burgeoning hormones and man-crushes.
Add in the fact she is a kick-ass, snarky forty-plus woman with curves and baggage - who adopts people wherever she goes - it’s a very fun read. And I love that #PWF is a new emerging sub genre - about time too.
I can also relate to the hot flashes.
Holy Hell this was fab and I know some future bad guys I think; enough bread crumbs and red herrings left scattered to form book three.
So many things were answered in this one; why Crash * a very hot, dubious smith * is, well, complicated, the why of Sarge’s aggression, the importance of the house and - what you really do with boy butter.
Those scenes. OMG I laughed so hard at this.
To top it off, the ‘supporting cast’ includes her ex’s cousin Corb, ridiculously hot and young, a water maid Feish, who looks more than a bit like a fish, Eric the gentle shapeshifter’Bigfoot’ who bakes and gardens, and a wobbly dead skeleton called Robert, and this ensemble rocks.
There’s plenty of tension, action, emotion, laughter and surprises to be had.
I absolutely loved this.
Now go buy it.
Story continues where it finished in first book and it's non stop action packed, full with dangerous twists and craziness. Can't wait for the next book in this series! I highly recommend this series to everyone, no matter how old you're.
