Release Blitz: Who's Afraid, Too? Maria Lewis

Title: Who’s Afraid Too?
Series: Tommi Grayson #2
Author: Maria Lewis
Publisher: Hachette Australia
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 10, 2017


Tommi Grayson: all bark, all bite . . . and now she's BACK! She’s never exactly been a normal girl. Bright blue hair, a mysterious past and barely controlled rage issues have a way of making a woman stand out. She really wanted to find out about her father’s side of the family, but now, after the sh*t show that was her family reunion, Tommi needs to get gone. She's spent the last few weeks trying to understand her heritage - the one that comes with a side order of fur as well as her Maori history and how she can connect to it.

But she can only escape for so long - when an unspeakable evil, thought long destroyed, returns, Tommi needs every bit of the skills she's learned. With the help of allies both old and new (including the immortal and incredibly attractive Lorcan), she's going to take the fight to the enemy …

From Scotland to New Zealand and on to Berlin, Germany – wherever Tommi goes the fur is sure to fly.

Mixing elements of urban fantasy and paranormal romance with an adrenalin-infused shot of adventure, Who’s Afraid, Too will delight fans of Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Keri Arthur and Darynda Jones.

I’m always up for finding a new urban fantasy author so when I came across Maria Lewis’Who’s Afraid, Too? I was practically salivating.  I couldn’t wait to dive in.  And I did, without reading the first book.  I know I know, this is bad juju especially in this genre.  But Lewis didn’t leave me hanging much, I had a few questions about what was going on but overall it read almost like a standalone within a series.  That being said, I still want to read the first book.  This was a brilliant work with some amazing world building but I can’t help but feel that I missed out on some great stuff in the previous book.

Tommi Grayson is a werewolf, apparently a rather new one at that.  She’s a soul sister in that she’s rather sarcastic, a bit of a lone wolf and pretty independent.  I liked her immediately.  And I loved that she could kick some major butt.  We need more books with strong heroines in them.  I loved the secondary characters as well.  Lorcan seems like the brooding, silent type.  He definitely comes off with some alpha tendencies that make me drool.  And I loved getting to know the Rogues.  Each character was complex with their own intricacies that brought them to life in my head.  Clay was definitely a favorite of mine.

All in all, this was a fabulous read.  Plenty of action, intrigue and mystery to keep me engaged and captivated.   It was like taking a rollercoaster ride in a labyrinth.  Action-packed, fast paced and full of twists and turns.   It was definitely a nice switch up from all the romance I’ve been reading lately.  If you’re new to the urban fantasy scene, this might just be a good series to wet your teeth on.  If you’re already a fan, it’s definitely worth a look too.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J
