A MONSTER AND A GENTLEMAN
In Dubois’ fifth entry in the Monsters in Hollywood series, heroine Cali is blunt and direct, to the point of rudeness, so it comes as no surprise that relationships are tricky territory for her. There’s something compelling about the fact that she uses this quality as a shield against getting hurt — but deep down she yearns for someone to love. Seling fits that bill perfectly. The secondary relationship between Oren and Maeve is just as fascinating and equally sexy, and both romances mix well with the overarching mystery. The monsters showcased here are different than the usual vampires and shifters, with an interesting lore that is easily explained throughout the story.
