Hi BookishLovers. Have you ever read a thriller that had you laughing with almost every sentence? No?? Well then you probably haven’t read Gregg Bell’s The IWS Rules: Book One: Rise of The Animal Rescue Feminists.
Lainey Tripper is no doughnut-eating bounty hunter. She’s a whiskey-drinking hard-living animal rescue feminist. But she has just this one little problem: she can’t seem to stop killing men.
The nefarious misogynistic dog-hating Donovan has taken his evil to a new level—stealing all of Chicago’s dogs to sell them to China for lunchmeat. Only Lainey and the IWS, the radical feminist animal rescue group she heads, can stop him.
Will Lainey stop Donovan in time? And when she’s done, will any men be left alive?

Disclaimer: I received this book free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
When I received the review request from the author, I was pretty intrigued. Since it is described as a thriller, though the author did say I would probably like the book since I love to laugh. Well, of course I had to give it a read.
I went into this book with the highest expectations ever, but unfortunately they weren’t exactly met. Sure I experienced a couple of laughs and the story was well-written and plotted but it lost its appeal after a while. It took me more than a week to finish this book, and I found myself going back and forth trying to decide if I should continue reading it or just give up and put it in the pile of books that I haven’t been able to finish.
But I powered through it and finished it, because really, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this book. It’s funny and refreshing and it’s quite a different take on a thriller than I have read before. It lost its hold on me after the first few chapters, and I think it’s because it started to become repetitive. I found myself not laughing at Lainey’s antics anymore. I ended up putting the book down more than I was picking it up.
I’m pretty sure this book could be brilliant for other people and have that WOW factor, but it didn’t have any of that for me. I do however, look forward to reading more of Gregg Bell’s work since he has pretty amazing ideas.
