HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!

You reap what you sow...
Saying Nate Grimm has a dark past is an understatement. Fortunately, no one's bothered to look too closely at the Fairytale Management Authority's lead detective and part-time Reaper. And that's the way Nate wants to keep it. For after centuries of torment and loneliness, he's finally found happiness with the hot and hard-charging love of his life, Tess "Red" Little.
Of course, his love for Tess is the reason there's a posse of Reaper judges after him, led by a sadistic bastard acquainted with Nate from once upon a time. Now, Tess will pay the price for Nate's transgressions unless Nate severs his ties to the transplanted Tales--and Tess--forever. His enemy has the advantage in speed, malice and brutality. But the Reapers have underestimated the depth of Nate's love and devotion. And the fury of his wrath. . .
This is a novella that adds a bit to the story of Red (Transplanted Tales #1). There are already three books in the series, with another to come later this year. I haven't read the first one, but I had no problem getting caught up with Red and Nate's story.
He has secrets. Lots of them! And he keeps thinking that when Tess Little "Red" hears them all, she's going to clock him one. She really should have! That boy had piles of secrets. BUT she just kept taking them in stride. She's one tough cookie.
Nate's job as a Reaper is seriously difficult. While he kept thinking he was a bad guy, I could see just why Red stayed with him. She sees what we do. He really is a good man...reaper...whatever. There is a bad guy here...and he was total loony tunes. My guess is that Ms. Serine had a blast writing him...and the Jaberwocky, too!
Lots of great supporting characters in this one. And I'm sure they have, or will have, their own Transplanted Tale at some point. This is the series that you want to read if you like snark, adventure, romance, and a twisted view of fairy tales.
*Thanks, NetGalley and Kensington, for the opportunity to read Grimm Consequences
