 Good Tuesday everyone, I hope you are all doing great and surviving the week . Today we are going to review FANGS AND FENNEL by Shannon Mayer .

                         BOOK BLURB

The delicious sequel to Venom and Vanilla, from USA Today bestselling author Shannon Mayer.
Alena Budrene is not just a gifted Seattle baker—she’s also a supernatural. Having survived the virus that made her transformation necessary and outwitted an attack by a Greek hero, she’s ready to settle down and deal with the challenges of living as a “Super Duper.”
But nothing is easy for a woman who can turn into a giant snake. Threatened by her unprecedented strength, Alena’s enemies team up against her. What’s next on the menu? The duplicitous demigod Theseus—backed by a ruthless vampire gang and the power-hungry goddess Hera—is determined to lure her into a glorious, and rather public, battle to the death.
Now humans, even the ones Alena risks her life to protect, are afraid to acknowledge her existence. And when the friends who once rallied around her begin to fall prey to Theseus’s manipulative schemes, Alena realizes she must act before she loses everything. But will the price of success be too high to pay?

                         MY REVIEW
   This is the second book in the trilogy and I was so excited when I found out it was out . I read it in one evening . I wanted to see what kind of trouble poor Alena was going to get thrown into and would her and Remo finally get it on . Yes I was hoping that they would .
   This time poor Alena is thrown into a battle with Theseus and a vampire feud . All she wants to do is prove that she is still alive and just cause she is a supernatural that the greek goddess Hera wants to kill over and over . All Alena wants to do is bake and be with her friends . Will she survive the newest hero coming after her .
    I so love these characters you can see Alena growing as a character . She is really starting to come into her own, you see bits and pieces of the new Alena popping up through out the book . She still can't swear but she is trying. She saves the world yet again but is having a hard time trying to save herself and the bakery .
  Remo and Tad and the rest of the gang is back . Zeus is as wacky as ever and Remo is just as hot and sexy as ever . But there is also a couple of new characters thrown into the mix .  We have Theseus who is out to kill Alena by alienating her and making everyone hate her . Then we have Santos another sexy as sin Vampire and his gang . Who are out to hurt whoever gets in the way .  Which seems to me it is everyone that crosses his path.
      I love these books , they are a fast fun read that will make you laugh and keep you flipping pages all night long . The author puts a great twist on the Greek mythology of monsters and hero's .  Who knew how much fun reading about monsters and hero's could be . The books are fast paced and it will have you laughing out loud . Trust me Don't eat the cupcakes . I laughed so hard reading that scene cause I can honestly see it happening . So if you want a great read with some great one liners and new inventive swear words . Check out Fangs and Fennel
