Series Curse Worker #2

Curses and cons. Magic and the mob. In Cassel Sharpe's world, they go together. Cassel always thought he was an ordinary guy, until he realized his memories were being manipulated by his brothers. Now he knows the truth—he’s the most powerful curse worker around. A touch of his hand can transform anything—or anyone—into something else.

That was how Lila, the girl he loved, became a white cat. Cassel was tricked into thinking he killed her, when actually he tried to save her. Now that she's human again, he should be overjoyed. Trouble is, Lila's been cursed to love him, a little gift from his emotion worker mom. And if Lila's love is as phony as Cassel's made-up memories, then he can't believe anything she says or does.

When Cassel's oldest brother is murdered, the Feds recruit Cassel to help make sense of the only clue—crime-scene images of a woman in red gloves. But the mob is after Cassel too—they know how valuable he could be to them. Cassel is going to have to stay one step ahead of both sides just to survive. But where can he turn when he can't trust anyone—least of all, himself?

Love is a curse and the con is the only answer in a game too dangerous to lose.

I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? Cassel trying to right all the wrongs

What I liked the Least? Lila’s reaction

Review: I don’t usually enjoy male lead fiction but I’m so into Cassel’s misfortune it is unbelievable. You just wanna take him home and make every thing all better. He’s got a screwed up family like you wouldn’t believe and in this sequel that drama llama is the main contender.

Recommended to: Paranormal mobsters
