Since coming home from Afghanistan, finding himself in a motel room with some random guy he’d picked up in a bar was nothing new for Jason Burge. To have the random hottie say he was an elf…yeah…okay, that was different. Sex on two feet or not, the whole thing was just too weird for Jason’s tastes. But, just when Jason decided it was time to leave, things go from weird to just plain crazy when Guy, a real live elf with pointed ears and all, appears out of thin air.
Jason suddenly finds himself embroiled in a war involving elves, demons, fairies, and – who can tell one from the other when they’re all glamoured? – dragons. One thing is sure, Jason wants nothing to do with any of it. Well…maybe there is one thing he wants – a sexy elf named Guy.
I’m going to be kind and make this short. If you looked at this synopsis and thought wow, that’s a lot of elements to balance in a plot, you are absolutely right. It’s a fantasy narrative sink full and here in Oh Yeah, An Elf by L.L. Brooks it feels as though the author put them all on little plot cards and tossed them into a bag, then wrote them as them were pulled out. It’s all very hodge podge, starting with the beginning. Throw in a nonsensical bdsm thread, characters with no depth or development, and you pretty much have this story.
I hate it when this happens and don’t like to write these reviews.
I haven’t read anything else by this author so I’m hoping to give other works by this author a try. But Oh Yeah, An Elf? Give it a pass.
Cover art is ok, but again a jumble of fonts and elements.
