Come Alive (Experiment in Terror #7)
by Karina Halle
It’s one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It’s another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray, convincing Perry Palomino to open herself to their burgeoning relationship has been more challenging than hunting ghosts, battling demons and stalking Sasquatch combined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Experiment in Terror show running is to take on a third partner in the form of the mysterious Maximus Jacobs — all while investigating a sinister voodoo sect in New Orleans — and you’ve got the perfect Southern storm and a recipe for disaster. Luckily, Dex has never been one to back down, even when his life –and heart — are on the line.
The real plus of this book is that it is told from Dex's point of view this time, something that doesn't happen very often. Being inside his head is awesome. He honestly reminds me of a few of my guy friends, there is something totally hysterical about someone that can't go more then a few minutes without saying something perverted. This could just be me, but that stuff cracks me up. That said I do have to say I liked the books told from Perrys point of view more. It just seemed that after a while I craved Perrys thoughts on everything. It is probably just because I'm used to reading from her point of view though.
The story itself was more then what I was expecting honestly. I can't say I was to surprised when the zombie master was figured out, but I was starting to doubt myself for a while there. That is enough to make a book great in and of itself. Just when you think you have it figured out something pops up to make you rethink everything.
The side story of Dex's and Perry's relationship was like riding on a roller coaster. After getting this far I just wanted to bang their heads together and make them just get over everything else and be happy. But of course we can't just jump off the ride, we have to take all the scary but exhilarating dips with them. But it is always worth it in the end.
Would I recommend this book? Oh yeah, I'm totally and completely in love with Perry and Dex. I can't wait to see what other crazy stuff they are going to go through.
On a side note here, Karina you have giving me so many fun names to call people that piss me off. I caught myself calling a driver that pissed me off a douchecanoe not to long ago and the shocked face my husband gave me was priceless.
Also I want to kick myself for not writing a review for every book. . .I think there is only 2 others out there from me. But it is all because as soon as I finished one book I started on another and I just didn't have the will power to stop myself to get to a review.
