You Stack it, We Pack it.
Life should be good when you are a daughter of Aphrodite, or a daughter of Morrigan. But that’s not what the fates had in mind for Cherry and Ebony. The two women get stuck together in the human realm to return a favor their mothers owe that will change their lives forever.
Appointed as the Karma collectors, they have the perfect opportunity to grow into their powers, only if they can look past their differences and embrace the destiny unfolding at their feet.
Having thieves as their fated mates was never part of the plan.
When Thor’s hammer gets stolen, it’s time to dash out some karma and collect on the sin. That’s where their troubles begin. Although they don’t like each other, they must work together unless they want to pay penance in the underworld for a century.
This whole mates thing must be a mixup, the only thing both of them agree on.
Plus, it can’t be hard to deliver karma to humans, right?
3 out of 5 (good)
STUCK WITH MY FRENEMY is the first book in The Karma Collectors series and if you are looking for an opposites book, then this is your winner.
Ebony is the daughter of the Morrigan, and Cherry the daughter of Aphrodite. One is full of rainbows, the other loves black. I'll leave it to you to figure out which is which. For some as yet unknown reason, Cherry and Ebony are sent to Earth as Karma's Collectors, and their first job is to give karma to the two thieves who stole Thor's Hammer. Of course, nothing is simple, so throw in a couple of fated mates plus Loki, and you're left with a whole ball of fun.
As Maya Daniels is one of the co-authors, you can expect the pacing to be extremely fast. I think the whole book takes place over a couple of days. The characters, you will either love or hate. I know it's probably meant to be this way but I really hate Cherry! Like, seriously!!! People talk about nails on a chalkboard, well, Cherry had me like chewing on a cotton wool ball! My jaw was so tense with every scene she was in and my palms were covered in nail marks.
If humorous urban fantasy is your thing, then I can definitely recommend this book. I'm sure the series is going to be full of fun and frolics, but I'm just not sure I'm up for all that colour! I think I may just retreat into my pit of doom and gloom and be happy there.

USA Today Bestselling and multi award-winning fiction author, Maya Daniels shares her skillful and creative storytelling with readers from around the world. Semiramis is her first published trilogy. Marrying her investigative journalism skills with her knowledge and passion of the esoteric, she spins compelling stories of magic, truth, romance, and adventure. She lives with her magick sprinkled familiar, a cat named Odyssey, in Southern California.

Cassandra Fear is a small-town girl with big town dreams. Growing up in Ohio, she passed her days lost in worlds full of Fae, vampires, shifters, love, action, and adventure. Sticking to her roots, she still lives in Ohio with an elf—her son—a fairy—her daughter—and a bunch of shifters in the forms of cats and dogs. Everyone pretends they are human or simply animals, but she knows better. Today, when she is not painting amazing designs on Photoshop, she creates the worlds she’s loved all her life. Values, love, friendships, and adventures pour from her fingers for you to immerse yourself in. Cassandra loves chocolate, hates driving in the snow, thinks her best friend is a little too snarky because she is a hybrid shifter/vamp, and that her kids are undercover beings from Faerie; She just plays along with the whole human thing for the sake of keeping the peace. She is nice like that.
