Elements of Ruin - Tate James & C.M. Stunich

#Review: Elements of Ruin by C.M. Stunich & Tate James @CMStunich @TateJamesAuthor


WARNING: This book contains romance (and sex) between one woman and six men, and she doesn’t have to choose just one. Also contains: raunchy humor, too many puns, group sex, a bit of M/M, and plenty of action, violence, and intrigue.

Six hunky, supernatural tradesmen.
One sarcastic, caffeine addicted bride.
A match made by fate … or karma?

My name is Arizona Smoke, and I have six husbands. Yup. Count ’em—six. Four sexy plumbers, one electric electrician … and my last husband? Total prick. Our unconventional marriage is almost complete. All I need to do is reconcile with my first love, and rescue a man I’ve never met. Easy, right?

As if marrying a bunch of supernatural plumbers isn’t hard enough, I also have to deal with the fact that my biological father and his six wives (yeah, I have six moms, too) are still hunting us, stalking us through sex parties hosted by demons and setting traps for us in the middle of underground supernatural raves. And you thought your family was dysfunctional!

All I wanted was a moment to breathe, a chance to get to know my new husbands in a way that was more than sexual—although I’m not exactly complaining about our time in the bedroom. But between my maniacal mother-in-law, some kidnapped lady-elementals, and the rich asshole I’m supposed to welcome into my new harem … when’s a girl got time for dates? Let alone planning a seven-way … wedding that is.

I’m Ari Smoke, spirit elemental, supernatural bada**, and hot-as-f*ck dragon chick.
Having six hot husbands is nice … but being hunted by evil sex demons, not so much.

ELEMENTS OF RUIN is a full-length comedic paranormal, reverse harem romance. This means our leading lady has six male love interests and doesn’t have to choose between them. This book is full of steamy sex, ridiculous plumbing puns, and heaps of action, intrigue, and … well, more puns. This is book 2 of 3.


I love this series so much! Elements of Ruin is the second in a three book series and had all the elements to make a great paranormal romance. A strong witty central character in Arizona Smoke, she is full of puns and banter, she is sarcastic and funny. Plus she’s got attitude coming out of her pores. I love this lady so much.

Then you have the hot tradesmen she is supernaturally married to, six men who are also elemental dragons, what could be better? You have the original four who adore Ari, then there is Warden who was her first love and is now back but saying he is going to leave, then there’s the new guy, an obnoxious Irish elemental who rubs her up the wrong way but has crazy sexual tension with her, of course.

In addition to all the plumber puns this book was full of Australian culture references, now we know us Brits are obsessed with Australia so it was great fun pulling them out and slapping myself on the back for knowing them! As with the first book I was split between the tension of the story which is completely gripping and laughing at all the puns and jokes which are slotted in all over the place.

The romance element is HOT yet doesn’t detract from the tension of the story and the ending! Wow, it’s one of THOSE endings that sets everything up for a complete shit storm of a third installment and I can’t wait to see what is coming! Absolutely bloody perfect.
