Midlife Fairy Hunter (Forty Proof, #2)
Over the hill, all outta ducks to give, and suddenly life is looking up . . .even if you're living with a ghost and fighting off werewolves.Moving back to Savannah changed my life in all the best ways. New job. New friends. As far from my ex-husband as possible.I didn’t count on the Shadow World intensifying its hold on my life.Color me surprised, when a new job lands in my lap watching over a fairy ring. Worth ten times what I’d make anywhere else, it seems too good to be true. I take it anyway.And that’s when things get weird.Spells are cast on my friends that seems to make them lose their marbles.I’ve got a Bigfoot baking in my kitchen.And a skeleton is quickly becoming my go-to guy. Which is silly because the eye candy strutting around in front of me is drool worthy. (I’m looking at you, Crash. Really looking 0_0)Nothing in Savannah is what it seems, and the magic and undercurrents of this city are pulling me onto a dangerous path.But with a Fae Queen begging my help, and the darkness closing in, I can only do one thing.Pop a couple Advil, and kick some serious ducking butt.

    Everything I needed and moreThis book was awesome. It was a adrenaline rush. I was waiting for the end to smack me. It did. I felt the ending all the way to my bones. I can't wait for more of this story. The new twist is going to be interesting to see play out. I also love the different people that are going to make up this group of friends. Well done

(now the publication dates vary but it was great to see them all drop at once) If you love Paranormal anything, then you should check these ladies out, seriously.Life isn’t really slowing down any for Bree since days after her last… encounter somewhat concluded she’s soon pushed right back into the craziness of the Shadow World, Savannah (although a Savannah that most tourists will never see), dealing with the Hollows Group and still trying to get her Grandmother’s home back where it belongs – with her as owner. No, not slowing down but perhaps changing directions a bit as we delve deeper into the world of Forty Proof and even more danger heads straight for Bree and her friends.I don’t give away more information than can be found in the Cover Description (that’s just my way) – but Midlife Fairy Hunter is a fantastic journey back into a world that I’m quickly becoming addicted to. Established relationships change, new ones form, and yet more dangerous entities emerge from the Shadow World to make certain that Bree actually gives no ducks whatsoever about how she solves this one. With twists, turns, a few surprises, and an ever-expanding crew of her own, Bree sets out to not only solve one mystery but to continue her journey on learning more about her own destiny, her abilities, and secrets she never expected to uncover.I most definitely belly-laughed, I might have snort-laughed, too as Midlife Fair Hunter tossed the unexpected at me constantly, and I loved it. It’s going to be torture to wait until July of 2020 for Midlife Demon Hunter, but I’ve no doubt that it will be well worth the wait. I had a blast back in this world once again with a story that kept me turning pages, characters that I loved, liked and loathed depending on their actions, and a story that is fast-paced, detailed, and engaging throughout. If you love anything in the Paranormal world (no matter your age) then you should be picking up the latest story in the Forty Proof series. I’d recommend reading in order since they build on the previous ones but.. that’s me.I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription (But I’m not sure how long it will be there)

    Even Better Than the First Book! Many series stay almost as good as the first book, but not better, and that is why, if I dont like the first book, I dont bother reading the rest of the series. Shannon Mayer is one of the FEW authors who start out books at a full run, and who ALWAYS delivers on her promises of saucy, smart, and capable heroines who hold their own, sometimes not so gracefully, but what would be the fun in a lead character who is perfect from the very beginning? Who listened to Even Better Than the First Book! Many series stay almost as good as the first book, but not better, and that is why, if I don’t like the first book, I don’t bother reading the rest of the series. Shannon Mayer is one of the FEW authors who start out books at a full run, and who ALWAYS delivers on her promises of saucy, smart, and capable heroines who hold their own, sometimes not so gracefully, but what would be the fun in a lead character who is perfect from the very beginning? Who listened to everything told to her? As a 53 year old woman, I am IN LOVE with the PWF group of authors/books. These heroines are even more relatable - they have many of the issues we “grown ass women” have (a quote from this book), and STILL get the job done, often BECAUSE they are “grown ass women” and know the world isn’t the one you see through rose-colored glasses, and neither are the men. This book, in which Breena, the main character, gets into a whole lot of trouble, whether she asks for it or not, feels soooooo true to how “one of us” would handle situations, making her more relatable to the women who mostly sit around and read these books. She still has a crush on the hot guy, but thinks that he is too hot for her, so she is suspicious, like she should be. None of her usual friends/cohorts are acting normally, so she has to depend, somewhat, on a new cast of characters who make her realize that she doesn’t need that job, that she thought she needed, nearly as much, and that she can form her own “merry band” of supernaturals who will be much more honest and faithful. I won’t talk about the facts of the book, but this second book is even better than the first one, and THAT would have been very difficult. RUN TO READ ALL OF MAYER’s books, if you like fun and laughter along with your paranormal action!

The Midlife Fairy 🧚‍♀️ Hunter This second book in the Forty-Proof series starts five days after book one, and though you don’t have to have read that, it enriches this one if you have.Breena is a middle aged misfit, recently moved to her hometown of Savannah after twenty years, to try and get back her dead granny’s house that her ex husband stole from her whilst Bree was incarcerated in a mental health institute he’d put her in - because she could see things that don’t exist - according to ‘Himself’. The ex.He gaslighted her, emotionally abused her and still won’t let her live life now they’re divorced. And to be honest he’s a weakly weasle of a man with a superiority complex - don’t worry, he’ll get his ‘reward’ as due.There’s magic in Savannah and Bree now believes in it.She’s smart, can fight, tell off werewolves and is not afraid to own her mature, burgeoning hormones and man-crushes.Add in the fact she is a kick-ass, snarky forty-plus woman with curves and baggage - who adopts people wherever she goes - it’s a very fun read. And I love that #PWF is a new emerging sub genre - about time too.I can also relate to the hot flashes.Holy Hell this was fab and I know some future bad guys I think; enough bread crumbs and red herrings left scattered to form book three.So many things were answered in this one; why Crash * a very hot, dubious smith * is, well, complicated, the why of Sarge’s aggression, the importance of the house and - what you really do with boy butter.Those scenes. OMG I laughed so hard at this.To top it off, the ‘supporting cast’ includes her ex’s cousin Corb, ridiculously hot and young, a water maid Feish, who looks more than a bit like a fish, Eric the gentle shapeshifter’Bigfoot’ who bakes and gardens, and a wobbly dead skeleton called Robert, and this ensemble rocks.There’s plenty of tension, action, emotion, laughter and surprises to be had.I absolutely loved this.Now go buy it.

    Another smash hit!I especially loved the reference to The Princess Bride, one of the best movies of all time! And the movie, Beetljuice. This book is action packed, with new friendships for Breena, Feish, & Eric. Everyone in the Hallows gets spelled. Of course, when everything starts going weird at work. They decide to do more training, like always. Thinks go from normal to crazy fast. The auction at Grans house turns into a disaster when you know who shows up. That's all I will say.

Breena takes a job on the side that turns out to be very dangerous & confusing as she trays to figure out what is going on with the fae. Oh, I forgot to mention a very snarky & sometimes sweet fairy named Kinkly becomes friends with Breena. You have got to read how brilliantly Shannon unravels a complicated evil scheme at the end. So many parts & people involved I couldn't tell who was good or bad until the end. Except for one person I've had a guy feeling about for a long time! Shannon please get up the next soon, this world calls to me!

    I love this bookThe author did an amazing job with this book. Our heroine is strong and fiesty but has a heart a mile wide. She draws the under dogs to her side and helps make them stronger. She is flawed but she is trying and never gives up. The world building is rich and complex. The author makes you care about other characters in her book almost as much as you care about the main characters. You want them all to succeed and find happiness. I laughed out loud at some of the scenes in the book. I love this bookThe author did an amazing job with this book. Our heroine is strong and fiesty but has a heart a mile wide.

The flare of creativity doesn't just stop at the worlds but also the unusual characters, we have your classic fae and werewolves but we also have skeletons, skeletal horses, yeti and whatever the hell else is lurking around yet to be discovered. But let's not forget the hotness that is Crash adds dramatic sigh for the bad boy.These books are just a fun read especially in these dark times of uncertainty. So sit back get comfy and take a journey to the shadow World.

There is so much true life in this fantasy series. The relationships are real; friends, people, discerning romantic endevors from being used. I find myself agreeing with takes on the after effects of action scenes and discovering there is more to a person to always be discovered.Book 2 is an incredible addition to the series.

And honestly, nothing makes up for the shitty way they have treated her. I will never like Corb - never - because of how he treated her in book 1. So I am just absolutely not here for him as possible love interest. I really dislike the way she allows her ex to still treat her as a doormat. In this book, after taking nearly everything from her, he comes back and tries to take more. She catches him, and rather than a host of good responses - calling the police (since she caught him breaking in and stealing her shit), or just fucking beating his ass - she just gives him a stern talking to and lets him leave. Are you kidding me with that? This doesn't make her look like a strong female lead. It makes her looks like a spineless moron who is still letting her ex get away with treating her like shit. It undercuts her character badly.Her character is also badly undercut by even being interested in Corb, who treated her like complete shit from beginning to end of book 1. Seriously, just no.I like Crash. I like Gran. I like the mystery unfolding about who/what Breena is. I like the idea of this series - the world it creates, and the complicated natures of fae. Big points in this book for Karissa. So ... I'm giving it 4 and going forward, with some concerns.

    I absolutely LOVED book 1 and was stoked to jump into book 2 headfirst. The plot throughout the book becomes a bit more elusive and mysterious as the story continues. Breena is just as kick-butt as before, though the story takes a turn for the unexpected away from her job at the Hollows group. To be honest, it shouldnt be that surprising considering Mayers other works. The quirk where she changes the F word to ducks continues and makes it even more endearing to the story.

As for the plot, nothing is truly everything as it seems, and Mayer loves to keep you on your toes. Breena’s also quickly assembling her own team of supernaturals to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves while living in the grey area between the Council and the Hollows group. It’s refreshing that Breena develops nicely as a character without sugar-coating anything. Yes, she’s now been in Hollows training for weeks, and has made some improvements in the physicality of the job, but her abilities don’t magically improve astronomically. There are subtle changes which makes it even more realistic. My one critique is some of the little details that were missed prior to publication which I’ve pointed out to Mayer through correspondence. Usually her books are so polished by the time they published that this took me by surprise. But aside from the few inconsistencies I found, the plot twists and intrigue of the story kept me hooked until the very end. Can’t wait to read the next one, and I’m especially excited to hear from Shannon that there will be at least 6 books in the series, if not 9.

Breena is back and I love that this book picks up where the last one left off. Of course, the hilarity quickly ensues when a fairy comes asking for her to meet with her lady, but she also has a small issue that needs some attention as well. I had to stand up Welcome back to Shannon Mayer's Forty Proof Series. Midlife Fairy Hunter continues this fun romp of a series and let me just tell you right now...buckle up and strap in because this book is full of laughs, danger, and nothing but trouble. Breena is back and I love that this book picks up where the last one left off. Of course, the hilarity quickly ensues when a fairy comes asking for her to meet with her lady, but she also has a small issue that needs some attention as well. I had to stand up because I almost fell out of my chair. I think that it is pretty safe to say that the author had a blast writing this book and it shows. Inbetween Breena trying to ignore the overwhelming hotness of certain characters you're swamped with jawdropping situations that will have your eyes bugging out of your head. I probably swore out loud like three times in the first 5 chapters alone. LOL! The ins and outs, the ups and downs, kept me page-turning to know what was going to happen next. I absolutely love that Breena knows enough to not make too many missteps with the supernatural creatures that she deals with...too much. Haha! But let's be real...some stuff...she just can't seem to be able to avoid, but that's what makes this book so great. As there is nothing that I don't like about this book, I am rating it 5 out of 5 stars. If you loved the first book then you are going to really enjoy this one as well. So I highly recommend that you grab this book because you really don't want to miss out on any of the fun that unfolds within these pages.

This new series is one of forty new books about a strong female lead that is over the age of 40. I love reading about someone closer to my age. These women and their books rock! Make sure to check outsome of the other women in this new group of authors known as the PWF. Ms. Mayer has another great series on her hands and this time the main character is someone I can really relate to. From a bad choice in a spouse, aches and pains, and even a quirky way of using profanity, Breena O’Rylee had me grunting, laughing and swearing right along with her. I also enjoyed new paranormal creatures and I cannot wait to get to know so many of the characters and the locations. I received an early copy of the book electronically in exchange for a fair and honest review. This electronic version had no glitches andI did not notice any grammer, spelling, or formatting errors. https://www.amazon.com/Midlife-Fairy-...

    Bree's adventure continues. Still a little sore from saving Eric from becoming the main ingredient in a spell to summon a demon, Bree is going to need a fresh bottle of Advil, because now the Fae need her help. Something big is going down in Savannah, and everyone is after a fae relic Bree has been hired to surveil. The question is who can she trust? The Seelie who hired her, but omitted details to the job, the Hallows Group that are all acting a little out of character, or the incredibly hot Bree's adventure continues.

The Seelie who hired her, but omitted details to the job, the Hallows Group that are all acting a little out of character, or the incredibly hot blacksmith with questionable morals? With her rag tag team of friends, Bree will work to stop the baddies in their tracks and deal with some life altering news. Time to pull up those big girl panties and grab some Advil. This book is non-stop action or major revelations. I couldn't put it down. In fact, I read it twice already. I love how relatable Bree is despite the supernatural aspect. I really enjoyed how conversational the book felt, like I sat down with Bree for some sweet tea to catch up on all the happenings. I highly recommend this book. There is no lull in the story and I highly anticipate the next book.

Hired by the Queen of fairies to watch over the Unseelie and let her know when they're getting close. Close to what, you might ask?? That is not my place to say. But Breena's promised to be well paid for her efforts. VERY well paid. Of course, this is a Shannon Mayer book, so you can imagine the twists and turns that go along with the watching of these Unseelie fairies.I love Shannon Mayer and all her books. They're very dear to my heart

    More Suspense and More Thrills!This series keeps getting better and better with every book! This one has more action, suspense, thrills, murder and mayhem, which kept me captivated and highly entertained from the very beginning to the very end. Breena is still amazing, still kicks ass (and getting better at it) and is still as witty as ever. She seems to be collecting more friends and enemies as the story progresses and there is some serious sexual tension and intense chemistry going on between More Suspense and More Thrills!This series keeps getting better and better with every book!

You need to read it to find out, but buckle up and hang on when you do because this series is definitely a wild ride. "What can I say? I'm a woman of mystery and full of plot twits you'll probably never see coming."This phenomenal story keeps pulling you in begging for more! Absolutely fantastic series and I can't wait to see where this amazing author take us next. Highly recommend
