I’d like to thank Brianna Scharfenberg at Night Shade Books for sending me the review copy of Just One Damned Thing After Another.  This is one of the most refreshing books I’ve read in a long time.  It’s a rare book that can make me laugh out loud (more than once) and a few chapters later nearly make me cry.

Instead he’s offered a position in a more exclusive unit, one that engages in black ops.  If he turns it down, he can go back and be a part of the unit he’d been trying for.  He decides to take the offer.

He doesn’t know what he’s getting into. Continue reading
