Goodreads Synopsis:

My name is Arizona Smoke, and I’m the proud owner of a house haunted by my dead Gram, best friend to a cocktail dress loving werewolf, and apparent soul mate to four plumbers who also happen to be elemental dragons. Besides rippling pectorals, tattoos, and…uh, nice, long pipes, the guys also have control of the elements.
Supernatural law (whoever heard of such a thing anyway?) dictates that since I stumbled upon the guys in their alternate forms, I have to marry them. All four of them. Oh, and apparently one lousy (okay, awesome) night of sex means that I’m an elemental, too—and no amount of magical penicillin can cure this disease.
All I wanted was hot running water and toilets that flushed, but now I’m dealing with monsters lurking in the sewers, supernatural politics, and four penniless (but totally hot) plumbers living in my crumbling old Victorian.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

Honestly, I read the synopsis and just knew that I had to read this book. I always seem to have such a great time reading these types of books. I cannot wait to jump into this book!

Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy for this book! I cannot wait to jump into this book. Just a small little disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing is good but I have definitely read better from one of the authors but it doesn't stop the writing from being addictive. I loved the dialogue. There is definitely a lot of swearing but it is very entertaining.

Plot Thoughts:

The plot is very unique and kind of messy but, oh my gosh, I love it. It's funny and everything that I expected. It is highly entertaining, the plot is just in tense in terms of that everything happens straight after each other. It definitely makes for a light and fast read. It can be difficult to read in terms of what your prefer. I would definitely not recommend this book for younger viewers. 

Character Thoughts:

I don't know how I feel about the characters. I guess that they were alright. They were definitely a crazy bunch and they all had their problems. The main character drank a lot of alchohol and there were some things that I didn't agree with. But they were an entertaining bunch.

Final Thoughts:

Overall,  I liked this book. This book is definitely problematic. There are definitely some things that a lot of people would have an issue with. There are a few things that I have a problem with. The writing was good but I have read better writing from one of the authors. The plot is kind of crazy. It is fast paced, filled with in tense moments that are sometimes cheapened or heightened by the excessive swearing. This book is in no way appropriate for younger readers. Despite the negatives of this story, I did enjoy what I read. Thank you so much to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy go this book!

About the Author:

C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind – especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.
She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.
Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.

Author links:

Tate James was born and raised in the Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand) but now lives in Australia with her husband, baby and furbaby. She is a lover of books, red wine, cats and coffee and is not a morning person. She is a bit too sarcastic and swears too much for polite society and definitely tells too many dirty jokes.
