Review: Parts & Wreck by Mark Henry

Parts & Wreck (Parts Department #1) by Mark Henry
Paranormal Romance, Demons
Ebook $2.99 (200 pages, ENTANGLED COVET)
Wade Crowson, a brutish and brooding playboy and veteran vivisectionist for the Parts Department, runs into more than he bargained for in new partner, Lucid Montgomery, a quirky beauty with a bizarre secret and a string of psychiatric diagnoses she tries hard to keep hidden. Loving Luce will stamp a demonic target on her back and thrust Wade into a frenzied whirlwind of hilarious misunderstandings and, quite possibly, a stripping gig for emptynesters. Can they withstand the savagery of an exorcism (with or without the split pea soup) and come out alive and …in love?Author Site: website

Get your weird on with PARTS & WRECK (3 stars)

Ya know how sometimes you have this friend who loves a book and she's so vehement that you must read it that you cave and do it only to wonder what the heck she was smoking when she read it? PARTS & WRECK is so that kind of book. There's no pretending it's going to appeal to everyone... not even most someones. It's just that special.

From the get-go I was pretty lost. Luce is one hard fish to pin down and I was immediately confused who the guy, Hitch, following her around was. There's just something about Henry's writing that made me feel like I was in a fever dream being narrated by Hunter S. Thompson that never let up. Wade was a little less hard to figure out but I never quite felt as sympathetic to him as I usually do with romance heroes. If you like your heroes large and well... in charge... you'll probably dig Wade. There's a weird push and pull between them as a couple that I never quite bought as love but was definitely feeling as bed-buddies.

As newly minted partners tracking down demon organs they had a pretty interesting world building concept going but there was just something off-color about it all that never quite washed with me. I have a pretty twisted sense of humor and I like weird but unless you find fetish funny you should probably find a different Covet to read.

While I never quite rose above a 'it's just okay' blandness with PARTS & WRECK, I really love that it gave me a chance to read another guy author's take on romance. I'll be picking up the next Part Department series installment for sure because hey, it ain't every day I get to read how a priest's glass eyeball was replaced by a dirty jawbreaker in a strip club bathroom... at least, I think that was how it went down... I gotta go figure out what I was smoking when I read that. Enjoy! ;)
