Review: Finders Reapers (Switched at First Kiss #2) by Anna Staniszewski

Book Blurb

Marcus is a Cupid. Lena is a Reaper. Opposites attract in book 2 of the adorkable Switched At First Kiss series by the acclaimed author of The Dirt Diary.

Lena's not ready for any more supernatural surprises. Her new boyfriend, Marcus, is a cupid. She's a soul collector ("reaper" just sound so harsh). And they just got their powers un-swapped. But things aren't as back to "normal" as they seem...

On his next assignment, Marcus's "love boost" is a little too powerful. (Baby talk is so annoying.) And Lena's soul sort of...escapes. The cause? Lena and Marcus's powers are still intertwined! Their emotions are affecting each other's power. So, basically the fate of the world depends on them getting along in their brand new romance. (Okay, just love and death, but still.)

No pressure, right?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Lena is in the school play as a playing card.  She is having trouble with the trust exercise.  She can’t fall back into Abigail’s arms and then when they switch places she almost drops her when her boyfriend, Marcus, walks in.
She marvels at the secrets she and Marcus keep.  She is a soul collector and Marcus is a cupid.  Their powers are getting back to normal after they were accidentally switched, but something is glitchy.  Marcus’ love touches are super powered and Lena’s powers are not working as they should.  Something is going on as their boss, Eddie, searches for an answer.  Things get even crazier when Lena loses a soul, Marcus wants a love match to break up and a new girl, Natalie, mysteriously shows up.  Things are definitely getting weird.  Lena and Marcus have no clue what to do.
I loved the first book about Lena and Marcus.  It was a cute story that got interesting when their powers were switched.  Neither knew what to do except go out together and help the other do their job.  They grew closer and started dating.  This book picks up where the other left off.  Things are getting back to normal after the mix up.  Lena and Marcus are getting used to doing their jobs and being a couple.  I like how their emotions come in to play when they are trying to use their powers.  That is such a teenage thing that makes the story more interesting.  I also like the addition of Natalie.  She is very mysterious and you have no clue why she is really there.  Your suspicions grow as the story evolves.  However the story did lag in some places and it was a challenge to stay interested and continue reading. 

I liked the characters and the idea of the story.  However I felt it didn’t hold my interest as well as the first one which I liked more.  I give this book a 3 out of 5.
