    This didn t have as much of the vigilante fun of the first book, and the MC disappointed me by being a littlepassive, but it was a great progression of the story line and we find outthings about the afterlife and get some theories on Dan s status.

    Joy ride, or freaky, creepy carnival ride come along for a spin.Daniel Jenkins repeatedly returns to earth in human form to atone for his sins and deliver some good old fashioned, oh, so gratifying, vigilante justice Fans of Book One, Kick, know Dan committed suicide while in college, bleeding all over the dorm room of the girl who d jilted him Horrors What in the world could entice me to spend a whole novel in the point of view of a thoughtless, self pitying loser like Dan Does the write Joy ride, or freaky, creepy carnival ride come along for a spin.Daniel Jenkins repeatedly returns to earth in human form to atone for his sins and deliver some good old fashioned, oh, so gratifying, vigilante justice Fans of Book One, Kick, know Dan committed suicide while in college, bleeding all over the dorm room of the girl who d jilted him Horrors What in the world could entice me to spend a whole novel in the point of view of a thoughtless, self pitying loser like Dan Does the writer even live who could interest me in this guy s miserable hereafter Yes Yes And yes again.Alas, poor Dan He comprehends the magnitude of his stupid act of suicide His guilt is so stupendous, he somehow finds himself entering the body of a living human man What happens to the guy s soul while Dan occupies his ride, we don t know, and we don t need to worry about that yet Most of these guys end up dead, thanks to Dan, who somehow manages to occupy the body of a bad guy, a seriously, horribly bad guy who deserves to die immediately And should have died before he had a chance to ruin so many other lives From the opening scene of Kick, I was hooked on Dan He s become so thoughtful in the lonely hours of the hereafter, he even thinks to tighten a plastic bag around his head before holding a gun to it and blowing his brains out Well, not his, as in Dan s, but his, as in whatever smarmy criminal was occupying this now dead body.If I make this sound way too complicated, trust me, it s easy to follow in the novel Monk is methodical in delivering the right amount of information when we need it, without resorting to the dreaded info dump of the novice author With wit and humor, irony, one surprise after another, flying bullets, innocents to save, donuts to devour and food, food, food, Dan reminds us of how much fun it is to be human, and how great it is just to eat in front of a big screen TV.Riding along with Dan is living out a dream What if we had only a few weeks to live to feast on all our favorite foods, never having to choke down lima beans or broccoli in order to prolong our lives Never having to consider cholesterol, diabetes or weight gain Too many rides in a row like that might get old might might , but Dan never has time to be bored The body he s in keeps getting phone calls or visits from other bad guys Somehow he has to get his fill of pizza before dispatching the baddies And he has to finish with the vigilante justice before the first, second and third warning kick that he s about to be evicted from the body he s riding around in Now that s pressure So much unfinished business to wrap up before he makes sure he leaves behind a dead body, not a criminal still alive and on the prowl.Do I sound smitten with this premise Well, I am.Book One held a surprise when the final ride happens to be a nice guy, and Dan has to work heroically to keep Nate alive after Dan s ride is over It occurs to Dan that in his next incarnation, he should look up Nate and ask him what it was like during the weeks Dan was occupying Nate s body I had looked forward to finding out in Book Two, but Dan is much too busy dealing with a violent novelist and his snuff film making cohorts, then with a house full of pedo But you don t want to hear it from me You want to read it all for yourself.And I hope for Book Three to come out soon Nate, I want to know if you remember anything of those three weeks when Dan Jenkins was in your body, posing as you, eating your food, watching your TV, enjoying your big house and car And helping to get you out of that crazy, stupid mess you got yourself into.I also want to see Dan achieve whatever nirvana will release him from this cycle Then again, as long as Dan is able to come back and eat junk food for a few weeks, maybe he ll never tire of the empty stretches in the great wherever Maybe he ll meet the Great Whomever.This is the most fun, gratifying, creepy, and satisfying fiction I ve read in a long time Plot holes don t matter I m along for the ride Whether it s a joy ride or a freaky carnival ride, Dan has me hooked and wanting chokengtitiktitikchokengs Take a close look at the cover of Kick Twisted Love it

    What an awesome sequel to Kick The lovable Dan Jenkins is back, larger than life I found this story slightly slower to get into than its predecessor, but once I was in the thick of it, it was amazing Just like the first book, once I became engrossed in the story, I found it difficult to put down.I loved that we got to see some character growth with Dan, as inevitably, so many kicks are bound to take their toll on his psyche It was great to learnabout his original life and family, and i What an awesome sequel to Kick The lovable Dan Jenkins is back, larger than life I found this story slightly slower to get into than its predecessor, but once I was in the thick of it, it was amazing Just like the first book, once I became engrossed in the story, I found it difficult to put down.I loved that we got to see some character growth with Dan, as inevitably, so many kicks are bound to take their toll on his psyche It was great to learnabout his original life and family, and interesting how it tied in with everything else going on Despite Dan s best efforts to remain unattached to his former life, he just can t help himself and it does present him with a few challenges as he battles to bring justice to his latest ride.I found myself itching to knowabout the minister, I feel there is a huge story arc there, just waiting to unfold There is muchto that character than we first thought I love that someone in Dan s present circumstance, knows of his predicament I also loved the detail of the subplot with the wrong phone number I won t sayas I don t want to spoil it for future readers but I highly recommend this book If you have not already read Kick, I urge you to read that first

    4.5 rounded up.Started out a bit weaker than the first in the series, but then got quite intriguing.

    This was just as good as the first book in the series.

    I enjoyed the first book in this series so much, I immediately bought this one No regrets It didn t have quite the punch of the first book, but it did expand on Dan s background, his family, and tantalizing hints about what his existence is.I still want to knowabout why he was chosen to keep coming back, and what s the real reason for his body hopping I m gettinginto the episodic nature of each book Each person he jumps into has a unique identity and problem for Dan to work out I enjoyed the first book in this series so much, I immediately bought this one No regrets It didn t have quite the punch of the first book, but it did expand on Dan s background, his family, and tantalizing hints about what his existence is.I still want to knowabout why he was chosen to keep coming back, and what s the real reason for his body hopping I m gettinginto the episodic nature of each book Each person he jumps into has a unique identity and problem for Dan to work out No two hops are the same I can t say it s a fun ride because most of the people Dan deals with are horrible scumbags, but this series is certainly entertaining I have the next book already

    Highly enjoyable sequel Without spoiling anything the rides get a little less cut and dry in this one Dan s rides are less likely to be standing over a body and holding a smoking gun when he takes over He has to do a little digging, and doesn t always look in the right place Rides start to overlap whoever is in charge is either messing with him, or trying to help him out Even Dan doesn t know which Great follow up to Kick.

    Really liked the first one, the premise was awesome In the first book I felt there was minimal description of what the evil creepy people did andfocus on stopping the evil But this one was waydescriptive, violent, graphic and seemed to have lost the the humor of the first one I stuck with it for a while hoping the funny and less descriptive story line would return with focus on ridding the world of evil scumbags but it didn t so I finally gave up and just stopped reading.
