A King and a Pawn (Leader Murders #3) by Liv Olteano

A King and a Pawn - Liv Olteano

This book is all over the place. I am not even sure I am attaching correct tags here.

- Urban history, for example. This could have taken place anywhere. In the woods or in the mountains, for all I care. But there was a mentioning of some humans in cars and apartment complexes so... I guess it's on an urban-y side.

- Law enforcement, PI. Not really. Bert is a beta (read: a butler and a cook and a nanny) to an asshole who happens to be in charge of PBI (paranormal bureau of investigations).

- Secret agent, spy, politician, diplomat. Same - Bert, the PBI asshole's beta, is sent on a diplomatic mission he has no prior training for, obvisly (see "beta" definition above).

*

There is no chemistry between MC's. None. Except for Will proclaiming his undying love for Bert every couple of pages or less.

And then there is all this talking.... I am surprised the characters (all of them, except for the babies) didn't talk their heads off.

A very frustrating and disappointing read :/ 2 stars.
