that too Doctors Addison Harris and Shane Meyers work for the totalitarian Triptych Corporation a company that makes Resident Evil s Umbrella Corp look like The Salvation Army It s not uite clear exactly what Triptych does since the book contains both science and magic as the primary focus of their research Be that ast may working for Triptych and The View from Alameda Island its mysterious Chairmen would make working for The Donald seem like a piece of cake One of the things that really stood out for me was the fact that the authors populated their world with characters of different ethnicities It might seem like a small thing but nothing annoys me as much when I read a book setn a cosmopolitan city like New York or San Francisco and there s no diversity That s fine When Fox Is a Thousand if the books set 100 Innovations of the Industrial Revolution in Fargo but completely lame when setn a large city that was also one of my big reasons for hating Sex Taken The Anthology in the City Into this maelstrom of backstabbing and manipulation which for the employees of Triptychs just another day at the office are cut throat adversaries who just so happen to share the creation of a child These two remind me of that old joke why don t sharks eat lawyers Professional respect They respect barely the abilities of the other Outside of that Addison and Shane cannot stand the sight of each other although sexually they can t keep their hands off the other Addison who Schematic Design is obviously black and British calls the half humanhalf alien Shane a prat amongst other things at various given times while Shane s name for her starts with a b and rhymes with witch These two really put the fun backnto dysfunctionalAddison The Second Sister is supposed too serve as anncubator for

situation Shane especiallys torn his cold alien side has no Let’s Call It a Doomsday interestn being a father and his human side only sees Addison as a way to get his rocks off on occasionHere s one place where Strange Little Band gleefully deviates from the norm Even though Shane and Addison are obviously attracted to each other and are willing for the sake of the children to make the best of a bad situation since Addison has a daughter from a previous relationship they actually have sex with other people due to a very twisted bit of manipulation on the part of the corporation If this sn t your cuppa then I d advise you to give Strange Little Band a pass No nstant monogamy here folksbut t s really not their fault In the midst of all the nsanity and yes bad behavior somehow they manage to create a strange little band of their own and t worksWhile I really wanted to rate this novel higher because I love books that don t adhere to and t worksWhile I really wanted to rate this novel higher because I love books that don t adhere to romance tropes as reached the final uarter of the book too much seemed to be happening far too fast Characters came Prohibido nacer in and out with

TRIPTYCHSEE THEY REALLY DO OWN YOU BODY AND SOUL they really DO own you body and soul just too perfect to be true Granted both are gifted psychics and near geniuses but I just wanted Shane and Addison trying to deal with the huge mess they found themselves n once they discovered they actually LOVED each other To be honest Strange Little Band needed than 366 pages because there was just so much What She Saw (Conard County information Also I wasn t certain when or even where the action took place Mentions of modern films like The Emperor s New Groove jarred me out of where I d been assuming the action was taking placen the near future Having said all of that both Ms Brauer and Ms Brooks deserve major kudos for attempting and for a huge part succeeding with a romance that really breaks new ground Strange Little Band s edgy and dark They took two pretty unlikeable characters and managed to make me like them and actually want to see them together It s a huge risk considering how romance readers like their rules For me though Mission AccomplishedI really and truly hope to see from this talented duo and soon. Become unlikely parents How can they raise a child when they can't trust each oth.

you are simply holding on for the ride Moments of WTF getnterspersed with the general normalcy of two divorced parents who exchange their kid for the weekend This Evolution As Entropy isndeed a romance novel But Forging Gay Identities it doesn t color within the romance novel lines As a matter of factt feels like the authors are gleefully willfully avoiding the lines with great result This Forbidden History is exactly the sort of envelope pushing nearly genre bending read that I am always looking forI also like that the two kids Ashlynn and Jake play such a large partn the story They are bred to be brilliant and they are and they demonstrate this often But they are also kids who grew up with two battling parents and after a time decide to take matters Fiche Blian ag Fás in their

goodnstinct about not allowing things to drag on so stuff doesn t get too repetitive and tedious At a little over halfway through Addison and Shane have a revelation and the 2nd part of the book
