Review: The Cure by MC Foley

Los Angeles. 2012. After a beaten-down, sickly cog visits a faith healer, she develops a dark wish fulfillment power that stokes her appetite for sex and vigilante-style revenge.

"The illness, the one that almost killed me, or almost killed my soul, was also the thing that brought me here. A new home in my City of Angels. Heads on stakes. Enemies impaled. All of this revenge surrounding what used to elude me - Power. Until now. One visit to the bird streets and everything changed. They say absolute power corrupts. Absolutely. Yes, it does."

Splashes of dark humor. Adults only.

When I first open this book and I seen the dedication page I knew I was going to like this book!
"Dedicated to Every Motherfucker I ever wanted to impale"
Evan is slowly feeling herself die with a mysterious illness that no doctors have been able to diagnose. When her friend Jimmy starts telling her of a healer that she needs to go to Evan figures why not nothing else has helped. As time goes on Evan starts to notice that she got more from this healer than she was expecting, and she is using it to get revenge on the people whom have gotten on her bad side. The high Evan feels from using this new power overtakes her body and really amps up her sexual drive.
I love how relate able Evan is, who hasn't had co workers or random strangers that has really put a damper on your day. Evan is able to get revenge with her new power and is not afraid to use it to help her friends/family as well. The interaction between the main character and the secondary characters is seamless. You get to see the relationship between Evan and Jimmy grow and take a twist I wasn't expecting and also her father like character Brooks which is also her landlord. I would have loved for this book to be longer but I'm sure it setting up for a nice sequel that I will be getting a copy of.

A favorite Excerpt:
" He leans over, brushes my shoulder with his and something ripples across my skin. Oh no. This is not good. This is me feeling a tingle in my crotch almost immediately. This is me glancing at his arm as he moves the mouse around my desk. Look at the girth on that bicep....the arms are the first hint to the rest of the body...and that hint says he's sliced up and solid and capable of lifting another person's body up and holding it against the wall while he penetrates-
NO Evan! I try to tell myself. Don't shit where you work....Don't shit where you work. I know...I know...I....know.
"Actually," he says, "it's something else. I'll have to go deeper into your files."
"Go Deeper?," I say. "Please do."
He doesn't turn, doesn't look straight at me, but he smiles."
