Hello lovelies! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog, I have my book review of:
Outfoxed, by Skye Cavanagh.
Trigger Warnings: Fighting, Blood, *lots of* Sex Scenes, Drugging, Kidnapping, and Murder.
Please note that there may be possible triggers that I’ve missed.
Little fox shifter in a big bad wolf’s world.
My day started like every other day, my colleagues laughing at the tiny fox while I took down a red cap twice my size. It ended with an undercover job with three incredibly hot guys who are now my fake husbands.
This was the stuff of dreams. If the job went well I’d get a promotion and the big undercover jobs would become my norm. Except things never go quite to plan do they?
We were supposed to watch the pack dealing in a deadly and highly illegal drug. Except I spotted something else, something much bigger and more far reaching. Soon we were pulled into the fae courts, the elite dragon houses, and worse; there might be ties to the agency I’d dreamt of working for since I was a little girl.
Time to show the world just how well this tiny fox kicks ass.
This is a standalone reverse harem romance with fake relationships, three smoking hot shifter guys, and a tiny fox heroine with a point to prove.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
Let’s start off with mentioning that there quite a few sex scenes within Outfoxed. For real. And the last sex scene in the book (pretty much the end scene to this first novel) is one big incredibly detailed and unnessecarily descriptive sex scene that I honestly skimmed over. Now…I’m all for sex scenes in books. However, the last one that I’m mentioning was too much for me. Yikes.
There’s a lot of fighting/action scenes within this novel too (though there seems to be more sex scenes). I found the fighting scenes were alright, but maybe a little lack lustre in some aspects.. I will say that there are moments in these fighting scenes that I definitely found interesting because of what supernatural each character ends up fighting. A conundrum, I know.
Within Outfoxed there are a total of 4 view points that are read/seen. I actually kinda enjoyed reading all of them. A great thing about each different view point is that they were so easily distinct and discernible from one another.
The plot itself is incredibly quick, so it’s easy to miss something that could happen. I don’t suggest skimming over the non-sexual parts of the story.
Nevertheless, with that premise that we’re given, I expected more from the book. More from the story, and the characters. I didn’t particularly like how sex-focused this book is, but I can’t change that.
All in all, I ended up giving Outfoxed, 1 star.
