Dungeon iThe Loots a tough book to rate and review As a thriller the plot Rabiosa is fairly run of the mill but Schaefer s writings engaging so the story still ended up being a fast paced and fairly compelling read which would make Sculpting Making a Toddler Doll it a successf I was only rating Soldados del Multiverso: Guerreros del pasado (Guerras del Multiverso n 2) it against the other thriller books I ve read Unfortunately for The Loot I m not just comparing this story to the stuff I ve readn the thriller genre over the years but I m also comparing On Disgust it to all the other Schaefer books I ve readn the fantasy and urban fantasy genres The bad news for The Loot A Dirty Wedding Night: A Dirty Rockstar Romance Collection (Dirty, Book 2.5) is that whilet was a decent thriller New Menopausal Years it was a fairly weak Schaefer book compared to what we can normally expect from him The plot and set up was fairly run of the mill and cliche for the genre Sergeant Charlie McCabe had just returned home after serving 8 years fightingn Afghanistan for the US army She takes up a gig as private security for a local firm Her first assignment Faja (Naslouchač, is as part of a team tasked with keeping a shady executive safe after he and his firm are blamed for deaths after a mine collapsen one of their operations As an extra complication Charlie also has to deal with some personal stuff as her father has fallen nto debt with the local branch of the Boston Mafia The story was engaging enough and Charlie was a likeable enough lead character so t was easy to root for her as she sought to keep her scumbag client safe and keep the thugs from breaking her deadbeat fathers legs The big problem Dirty Work is Schaefer stories are usuallynteresting than just decent and the plots are usually a lot less run of the mill We did get a bit of Hearts Farthings intrigue as Charlie snvestigation did get them caught up The Mount Shasta Mission in solving a jewel heist from yesteryear but even that felt like something I ve readn 100 other thriller stories over the years rather than anything fresh or original The biggest flaw this book suffered from when compared to Schaefer s other series was the lack of memorable or fun secondary characters Charlie herself was nothing special but I liked her well enough and found Little Darlings it easy enough to root for her but the rest of the cast were a bit of a bust The other members of Charlie s security team were so forgettable I can barely remember their names and I only finished this book yesterday Worse was the fact that the villains were eually dull and forgettable Schaefer villains are usually a ton of fun and so are the secondary back up characters sot was a real weakness for this tale that they all bombed Greenwich in this book Hopefully the seuel will see fun charactersntroduced to add some much needed depth to the story I also found the humour to be a bit lacking compared to regular Schaefer books I think this a common flaw when Schaefer writes n the third person I find I enjoy his first person stories better He just just does that style of story much better even f he seems to prefer writing third person POV stories All Your Name Here in all this was still a good and enjoyable story butn the end I was still left a bit disappointed as Mate Me [If You May] (The Millennium Wolves, it was not great when compared to Schaefer s other books This felt a bit like a cheapmitation Harmony Black book with all the fantasy elements the humour and the fun villains sucked out of the tale Rating 35 stars I m rounding down to 3 stars here on Goodreads That feels harsh #as True if this was a regular thriller #if this was a regular thriller I probably have rated A Fairly Honourable Defeat it 4 stars Its a Schaefer book though so Fucking Trans Women it suffers from being judged against his other books thant does being compared to your average thriller tale Audio Note I m a fan of Susannah Jones and feel like she gave a good performance of this one If she has a flaw Slavery Reborn its the fact that when I listen to Schaefer books narrated by Susannah Jones I tend to find them less humorous than normal I m not sure f
