Book Review: Armed & Fabulous by Camilla Chafer
First things first – I’ve heard tons of negative comments about this series. Why? Simply because some people feel that it is TOO much like the Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich. Since I am one that has read the ENTIRE series so far, I can say with certainty that Chafer has written very original characters with their own fascinating stories & plot lines. While I can see why there may be some comparison – it pretty much ends with her being conflicted a guy. Seriously though; name one time where you haven’t been conflicted when it comes to a male. Yea.. I’ll wait . (:
Lexi – I freaking love her. She reminds me of me sometimes.. Well; really just her smart-ass attitude, but still! She is smart, sassy, head strong and is completely aware of her flaws – yet she uses them to her advantage instead of letting them get the better of her. Yea. Smart Cookie. She works as a tempt at an Insurance Company. Why? Who knows – she comes from a family FULL of cops.. maybe she wanted to be different! Anyways – she’s working late one night in the basement library and on her way to drop some papers off on one of her bosses desk – she finds him dead on the floor . Thinking that the killer may still be in the building, she hides in the closer. To her surprise, she isn’t alone.
Enter Adam – Lexis direct boss. (Who, might I add – has a SERIOUS Swoon Factor going on!) He’s not exactly the person he’s been letting everyone believe he is. You know, typical, boring Insurance Company Boss Man. Nope. Not this guy . Try bad ass undercover cop trying to catch a fraud ring – and now – his lead suspect is dead. He’s having an AMAZING day. As if that wasn’t complicated enough, Lexi is now a key witness and it seems that someone wants her dead. The kicker? He’s got his hands full with Lexi since she has this uncanny ability to find dead bodies.
Then you have Solomon (working the Serious Swoon Factor himself!) – who is working the case with Adam, and now – Lexi. You also have Lily, Lexi’s best friend – who by all accounts is NOT being left out of the fun! With the four of them going at this, the book is filled with page turning hilarity . Watching as they tried to uncover this ring and who was after Lexi proved amusing – especially since Lexi and Lily decided 1 too many times to play detectives without the big boys.
Then you have Lexi’s family. Especially her brothers! They really know what it means to protect their sisters honor!
SEE! They are an epic kind of awesome!
The chemistry in this book is amazing. The story line flowed effortlessly. I LOVE me a good love triangle & it seems that this serious is shaping up to be just that! Seriously; it makes for some awesome story lines! In my opinion, Camilla Chafer has a hit on her hands. I can’t wait to read book 2 – Who Glares Wins – which I purchased earlier today! So be looking for that review!
Thanks for stopping by!
