Review: Monkey's Uncle
Monkey's Uncle by Tymber Dalton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Scared of the ebola virus news in current events? Let Ms. Dalton give her theories on how it will all play out.
Book two in the Drunk Monkey series is just as fun as the first. This time, the team is heading to Mexico. Mexico is known for passionate Latina women and lust driven one-night stands to take a man's mind off the world imploding, right? Did they mention the nurse who gleefully castrates men caught sexually violating women? Sometimes, when a small community bands together, justice is swifter than expected.
India Pelletier finally feels at home in Mexico. She's the nurse running a clinic without a doctor. She is waiting patiently for a doctor to arrive to help her. When her term is up, she knows she can go to other places, but where would it be safe? Back home in the US, the Kite virus is becoming more prevalent. Her parents have thrown their life savings away to a con-man. Perhaps staying in Mexico is the best choice, if only she could find a man to help alleviate her lonely nights.
When the Drunk Monkeys blow into town on a mission to find the next doctor on the list, India is caught up in their harebrained schemes. Twins Oscar and Yankee are paired up with India. For those who love twin ménage, this book will appease the need for two studly brothers performing the horizontal salsa with a hot nurse. Hello, Nurse!
What makes this book so fun is the snarky dialogue between the characters. India is a fiery woman who knows what she wants. Her courage and kindheartedness is admirable. Her fierce vengeance when someone commits a wrong is bloodthirsty and satisfying. Oscar and Yankee are rather forgettable when paired up with India. The sex they have together is hot yet it doesn't really do it for me. For those used to Ms. Dalton's kinkier sex, this may be a bit too tame. Still, the sex is just a small part of the story. This series is more plot driven and it's a blast to read.
The suspense when trying to find the mole and the doctors on the list is what keeps a reader coming back to this story. How will it all end? How will they find the doctors? Will the virus mutate out of control and become even deadlier? The story catches a reader's attention and keeps it until the book is done. Warning, do not start this book late at night. Recommended for apocalypse lovers who are ready for the zombies.
