April Books 2) Any Given Doomsday, by Lori Handeland
God, this one was awful too. It had a fair bit of buzz on LibraryThing at one stage, so I bought it then and forgot about it. But it's a very formulaic urban fantasy, with many elements shared with mizkit's Urban Shaman series, which did almost all of them earlier and better. The one partial exception is the sex, which starts off hot and heavy, but then rapidly becomes both tedious and unpleasant. A waste of time.
