Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Outfoxed by R.J. Blain @rj_blain @XpressoTours

(The Fox Witch, #1)
Publication date: November 3rd 2020
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Death is a way of life outside of the safety of Inner Tulsa, and Jade means to keep flipping Mother Nature off until old age claims her. With one eye always on the sky, the last thing she needs is a pack of bounty hunters out for her living head. With no idea of why anyone would want her, her wits might keep her free, assuming she can resist the charming lures of Sandro, one of the men out to claim her as his own.

Left with the choice of being the evening snack of a tornado or taking shelter with the bounty hunter, she does what she does best: she lives on the edge.

Striking a bargain with the handsome bounty hunter buys her another day of life, but it also dumps her into the heart of a sinister plot, one meant to enslave the residents of the storm-tossed city—and the others brave and foolish enough to call the Alley home.

My Review:

Jade lives day by day just trying to stay alive and to keep clear of the bounty hunters who are chasing her. Jade has a high price on her head making the bounty hunters work that much harder to capture her. Jade is a fox shifter with magic which makes her very rare and a prize.

If one of the storms that tear through the Alley almost daily doesn’t get her then one of these bounty hunters just might but not if she can help it they won’t. If she is caught she will be sold on an auction block to the highest bidder and taken into their home to be highly taken care of. Jade will be nothing more to them than another son or baby carrier.

Jade is being chased by one of these bounty hunters one day when a storm tears through the land. Jade has an underground shelter to take cover in but the problem is if she goes into her shelter then its location will be revealed to the bounty hunter. If she reveals the shelter’s location to the bounty hunter then she will have to find another shelter and this shelter is one of the best shelters around.

With no other choice if she wants to live Jade dives into her shelter with the bounty hunter right on her heels. She is not too upset about the bounty hunter knowing the location of the shelter as she’s not heartless enough to leave him out in the storm without any protection as he would surely die. The storms are almost always deadly without a shelter.

The thing is they could be trapped in the shelter for a long time; anywhere from a few hours to a few days or even weeks before the storm may let up. Another problem she has is when the storm lets up can she get away from him?

Outfoxed is a great introduction to a brand new world of shifters, witches, and magic. The world-building was created amazingly well. I love the plotline for Outfoxed. The descriptions were all so vividly written that I had no trouble picturing them in my head. I felt as if I was right there standing beside the characters watching and listening to everything that was going on.

Jade is a very independent and strong person who knows what she wants and I believe will get what she wants sooner or later. I think that Jade knows that she will have to bide her time and deal with what she has been dealt with until she can figure a way out whatever that means to her. Will she come to accept her fate or will she change things to the way she wants them to be or will she find a way to escape? Come join Jade on her journey in Outfoxed to find out by one-clicking your copy today to begin this wonderful new magical world! I can’t wait to see what is on the agenda for Jade next.
