Chrissy McMullen has made a career leap, all the way from slinging drinks at Chicago's most notorious nightclub to dispensing psychotherapy from her sleek new practice in LA. Even if she can't quite shed her too-loud, too-curvy alter ego - or the brawling family that insists on claiming kinship. So when her most famous client, buff football star "Bomber" Bomstad, starts chasing her around her desk and getting, well...unzipped...Christina gets just a little miffed - until Bomber has the bad manners to drop dead at her feet.
Enter Jack Rivera, a no-nonsense detective with a grim attitude and a great butt, who's determined to prove this cocktail-waitress-turned-shrink was engaging in some very unethical behavior. Persuading Rivera that she's not a murderer isn't going to be easy. Plunging headfirst into a city full of people in need of some serious therapy, Chrissy will have to use all her street smarts, a good deal of sex appeal, and a little love to clear her name - and cancel an appointment with a killer.

A romantic comedy meets mystery
Note: this is not a cozy mystery. There are scenes with attempted rape, cussing, and graphic sexual scenes. Just mentioning for those who are sensitive to such topics.
This book was a laugh out loud romantic comedy mystery. Christina is hilarious, and hearing her inner monologue adds a dimension which made this book very enjoyable. Christina finds herself in a bind when one of her clients dies in her office & she becomes the top suspect. That's when we meet Rivera, the head police in the investigation. There begins a game of cat and mouse going on with Chrissy & Rivera, which is sometimes funny but other times.. disturbing? Rivera is controlling and possessive and I get 50 shades of grey vibes. He seems to get off on being verbally aggressive and controlling with Christina, and I'm not a fan of that. But there are a lot of other great characters who round this book out, including Soleburg. Another touch I loved were the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. There are a lot of little touches like these which made this a great listen! I was voluntarily provided a review copy and gave my honest review

One of my all time favorites finally released to Audible!
I've been waiting years for the Lois Greiman "Un" series to be released in audio. Though it's been a couple years since I read it last, it quickly came back to me why I recommend this series to anyone that will listen. Chrissy McMullen is a smart, witty, and relatable character. I find myself caught up in the same emotions as her throughout the book...and the interaction between her and Rivera is laugh out loud entertaining.
If you enjoyed the early Stephanie Plum series, be sure to check out Chrissy McMullen. You won't be disappointed...here's hoping Unplugged, Unscrewed and Unmanned are released on Audible soon!
