Temp: An Accidental Fairytale by A.E. Mayer

Temp: An Accidental Fairytale
By A.E. Mayer

From Goodreads:
You might imagine the Collision that catapulted magical creatures to Earth would make every moment miraculous. But jobs were just as dull, and life could be just as boring. Traffic still stunk, only now with dragon Flyways above highways, the stink was worse than ever. 

Jackson Bee Belle Elders (Bee for short) is a promising Magical Sciences major who ends up smack in the middle of the Southern home town she tried to escape. Her lofty dreams of adventure only land her under fluorescent lights as she turfs creatures to temp jobs for Beveled Star Magical Staffing (B.S. for short). 

But everything changes when the cautious temp meets a friend who will dramatically alter her holiday weekend and her life. Nevermind that the friend is a wolf working for a despicable djinn who might use him to destroy the planet and everyone in it. Nevermind that the wolf can talk, but no human except Bee can hear him. Bee has a lot of secrets—some she knows about, and some she doesn’t. 

Fizzing with wit and adventure, Temp is a tale for anyone who has ever fantasized about a more magical life.

Alexia’s Review:
How to begin? A.E. Mayer is a fabulous writer – the ‘world’ that she has created in the story is absolutely amazing. There are a number of supernatural creatures that you encounter in this book that are so freaking interesting. The way that A.E. Mayer describes the creatures and surroundings is awe inspiring. Bee has decided she has had enough of playing it safe and dealing with her wretched employer so she goes on an amazing adventure, where she discovers her true self – Bee handles all difficult situations with such ease and bravado. Bee is a kick ass chick!!

Superb cocktail creation
