I originally read Shooter – another book by this author that apparently has Preacher as a background character – a while back; however, I have NO recollection of said “cameo” and no real recollection of that book in general. In fact, according to GR, I finished that thing in January of 2014.
Which might have well been the English Regency period as long ago as that feels.
Actual depiction of me reading that book:
Obviously, my highlight game was suffering here as evidenced by my lack of bottle blonde.
Anyway, that truly might as well have been a million years ago as far as I’m concerned, being that I have LITERALLY read close to 700 books since then.
1) This book can be read as a standalone.
2) I didn’t remember anything about Preacher or what a complete and utter asshat he was.
He was a totally disgusting asshole at the beginning of this book…
…which made his character progression throughout this story even more delicious.
If you like anti-hero books and situations where the H and h are “forced” to live together, this is your kind of book.
The MC doesn’t really play a major role here at all if you are someone who doesn’t love reading about that life. I AM someone who loves reading about that life – which was why I picked this up, as it was on my friend Bev’s (thanks Bev!) MC shelf – but I didn’t feel played for not really getting any of that here.
I really liked the h here too. Whenever the lead h avoids being a TSTL airhead, I consider that a win.
In short, I really loved this book and will probably go back and read more from this author.
Except for Tex, which I heard is a bdsm-ish train wreck gone bad.
