The Kiss That Isn’t / Review: Every Which Way But Dead, by Kim Harrison

That alphahole I mentioned last week, J? The two-hundred-plus pounds of muscle who showed up ranting and raving and acting like I was the worst piece of cat scat to land on his territory?

He just almost kissed me. I think.

Incredible. This massive, drunk-on-his-own-power, commanding guy. His face next to mine. His lips…close to mine.

I don’t even know what to think.

I have no other words for this, which is fine, because what I really came here for was a book review!


Every Which Way but Dead is the third book in Kim Harrison’s Hollows series, but even reading it without the others, I was completely invested and in love. After finishing it, you can bet I ran right out to buy the first two books–which I also loved. This is urban fantasy with tons of suspense, danger, humor (always a plus), and incredible characters. I was envious of their friendships and I really really wanted to live here in this amazingly well-constructed world.

A world where alphaholes don’t randomly almost kiss you and then run away.

This calls for hot chocolate. Lucky for me, I did a grocery run and I have big stash of that instant gourmet stuff.

Until next time,
