{Blog Tour: Review Giveaway} Dirty Little Misery - By Tracey Martin


Author: Tracey Martin 
Release Date: 8/12/2014  
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N  
Thanks to her freakish, satyr-like power, Jessica Moore was denied her dream to join the Gryphons, the magical law-enforcement officers protecting humanity from the pred races. But after the Gryphons tried to arrest her for murders she didn’t commit, Jess is no longer interested. Too bad—they are.
Now that they know what she can do, they want Jess on their side. If she doesn’t agree to help them solve a new case, they’ll charge her with every magical crime she’s ever committed.
Nine people are dead. The cause? Exhaustion. The activity? Never-ending sex. Someone sold them tainted F, an illegal aphrodisiac made by satyrs. No surprise, Jess’s satyr allies aren’t pleased with her investigation. Worse, it strains her tenuous relationship with Lucen, the one satyr she counts as a friend.
As Jess delves into the shady satyr business world, she unravels a scheme more sinister than dirty drugs—and her relationship with Lucen unravels right along with it. Only the truth will save their friendship. But not before it turns Jess into an ambitious killer’s next target.

Warning: Contains blackmail, betrayal, and sex that’s literally to die for. Plus plenty of bad stiff jokes to go with it. Remember, just say no to magical drugs
Hot steamy action, and it was just my cup of tea!
Oh how I've missed your Urban's been far too long since I've read a book that had me enthralled like this one.
Jumping into this series I was blindsided with how gritty it was, and I mean that it a great way. Jess the main character was smart, frustrated, witty, sarcastic, truly all the things that I love in a heroine. Getting to know her was fantastic, even if she has some issues with self hating. I mean her gift, or curse, is going to be such a great asset for her as this series goes along. Having a trick like that up your sleeve is going to be something to watch for.
Besides the thought out plot line, let's talk about the way females are dropping like flies....exhaustion...from sex...I mean sounds like the best way to go, but not necessarily when you're being drugged into it. As Jess learns more and more about this case, where these tainted drugs are coming from she truly starts to shine. Using her gift allowed her to own her uniqueness, it was awesome.
Lately I've been finding quiet a few series' that I would follow to the ends of the literary earth, and this is one that I'm adding onto that pile. Writing style, fast paced, edge of your seat writing is something I admire so much, and Tracey was able to combine all of these things into this action packed book.
About the Author:
Tracey Martin grew up outside of Philadelphia, the lucky recipient of a drama-free childhood, which is why she spent so much time reading about other people’s lives. It was while she was working on her doctorate in psychology that she had an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she began writing. Never able to choose just one of anything, she currently writes both urban fantasy for adults and contemporary stories for teens.
She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn't understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets.
