Special Offers by M.L. Ryan
Hailey Parrish lived in a one-bedroom guesthouse that was quickly becoming overtaken by her paperback collection. So, in an effort to conserve space, she impulsively purchased a Kindle to help her conserve room. The Kindle included “Special Offers,” meaning she saved money by allowing it to show ads while charging. Hailey was a chinchilla milker, which paid pretty well, but she still didn’t see the point in senselessly wasting money.
When the Kindle finally arrived, she immediately downloaded a free classic book so she could try her new device out; when she prepared to read the book, she felt a strange surge of something akin to static electricity course throughout her body. While she thought this odd, she thought no more of it as she began to read. She felt kind of sick for the next couple of days, but was feeling a bit better by Monday, in time to go back to chinchilla milking.
Shortly thereafter, she began to hear a voice in her head – not HER voice, but a man’s voice. After a rather interesting conversation, Hailey discovered she was playing host to the spirit of a Coursodon man, a person from a magical alternative dimension whose body had been killed, but who had managed to divert his living spirit into her Kindle. The man’s name was Sebastian Kess.
Soon, Sebastian’s friend, Alex, appeared on Hailey’s doorstep. Hailey, Alex, and Sebastian began working to find a way to get Sebastian out of Hailey and back into his own (hopefully salvageable) body.
M.L. Ryan created a story based upon a very fresh and extremely provocative premise. With the introduction of an alternate dimension and modern technology, an amazing adventure was born. The characters were all very interesting, with each possessing very specific personalities. Hailey was an exceptionally brave, snarky, and engrossing character. She rolled with the punches – and there were many.
Sebastian was known as a womanizer, thus it was interesting for him to be stuck in a woman’s body. The descriptions of man’s experiences inside a woman (literally inside and not in a sexual nature) were often amusing, and sometimes enlightening.
Alex was one of those heroes every woman wishes existed in the real world. He was patient, loving, a good friend to both Hailey and Sebastian, a great listener, and loyal to both.
As demonstrated in Special Offers, M.L. Ryan has the ability to create a tale that wraps the reader in wonder. This author has created a story that is funny, touching, sad, and simply enjoyable to read. Special Offers is written in such an enthralling manner that before the reader realizes what happens, all the pages are gone. That is the saddest part of the book – when there are no more pages to turn. On the bright side, there are more books in this series to read.
I rate Special Offers 4 brilliant stars out of 5 stars!
