Get It Together (The Undead Detective Agency Book 1) by Shelby Rhodes

"I'm perfectly capable of controlling my emotions.  I'm not a child, you know!" Get It Together.

From the blurb:

Hello, there! I’m Octavius Evander. And this is the beginning of my story—well…sort of. It’s not the
very beginning. As a vampire, that story would be way too long to write down—think, before the Romans. Rather, this story is about how I met the love of my unlife. Okay, it will be mostly about the cool and fancy detective agency I opened and solving mysteries, but also a little about love too.

So, what does one need to open a detective agency, you may ask? Well, for one, a detective. As it was my idea, and I paid for everything, I, of course, filled that role. Next, I needed a secretary. My beautiful and marginally dangerous best friend Scarlett filled that role. Now, I will admit, at that time, I had not thought further than that, and simply skipped to getting my detective license, an office, and some other necessities.

My mind might have been too full of the fun adventures I was about to have. My hope was that those in and out of the paranormal communities would keep me entertained for a very long time. I quickly realized I still needed a driver, a tech person, and a witch that was good with ghosts. This is the story of how I found those people. And who would have thought the first to walk through the door would be human, with no knowledge of the paranormal—my precious Turney.

CONTENT WARNING: This is a slow burn M/M paranormal romance series with a bit of heat. There will be blood, violence and death. Please do not read if you find any of the previous triggering.

Miki.J's Review: 

Get It Together is an absolute gem !!  I fell in love with the story from the opening chapter and thoroughly enjoyed the ride right to the end.  

Yes, it has the token human who is clueless of the supernatural world…. Until he answered that ad and boy, didn’t he go through a baptism of fire !! bahahahahaha  And then there is the vampire, who is probably not what you are expecting but he’s sooo much fun !!!   

The story is very well paced and the world building is very well done.  Overall, this story is quirky, funny, slow burn, with a couple of cases to solve and a few twists along the way.  And the supporting characters are well written in – there’s going to be a few more twists, that’s for sure !  

A perfect book to get comfy with and getting lost into the story.

Janet's Review:

Get It Together is a fun, quirky read!! I quickly fell in love with this story, fell so hard! It was a struggle to put it down. 

This is not your typical vampire story. Octavius is hilarious and he will leave you giggling all the time. Octavius a vampire that starts his own detective agency and needs to hire a driver. 

Enter Turney, who is a college student needing money to finish becoming a lawyer. Turney is that clueless human that didn’t know anything about the supernatural community. 

The cases are odd but seriously fun to read. Octavius and Turney have amazing chemistry! 

Overall, fantastic! I cannot wait to read more of this series! Well written with great pacing that keeps you turning the pages!!
