{Review} No Brainer by AJ Lape

Two weeks before junior year, Darcy hops a plane to Orlando for a little R&R with her best friend Dylan and his family. Fresh off the heels of solving three murders in Valley, you'd think she'd sit back and enjoy the vacation capital of the world … maybe if you're a noun. Darcy Walker, however, is nothing but verb.

Before her feet hit the Orlando soil, she's meddling in the disappearance of a five-year-old boy who vanished six months earlier.

With authorities still no closer to solving the case, Darcy is shanghaied by her impulsivity and runs headlong into that proverbial burning building, convinced she can bring him home.

She travels down a road that not only follows this missing child but branches off into the corrupt and sinister world of mob activity when she tampers in a case on which Dylan's detective grandfather is working.

After a near disastrous midnight meeting in a warehouse and a date with a mechanical bull, Darcy realizes she might've bitten off more than she can chew. Add the boiling flirtationship with her best friend and the appearance of his romantic rival, and she is in over her head.

Will she survive a life of flirting with death too easily? Or will her flirtationship with Dylan become the actual death of her instead?

For a girl with a habit of finding dead bodies, No Brainer gives Darcy Walker more of the same…surprising twists and turns…and running for her life.



To Read my Review of Grade A Stupid the first in the series --->Click Here<---

Darcy is about to go on vacation with the Taylor's to Orlando. So what does Darcy do? She watches the newspapers to see if anything is happening down there. Well there is. A little boy named Cisco Medina was kidnapped and they have no leads. Darcy being the type of girl she is, is determined to find the little boy. All the while she has to lie and sneak around Dylan and dodge the advances of Kyd who lives next door. Darcy doesn't think it will be easy but she also doesn't think it will be all bad. Except.. Darcy's middle name is trouble (it's really Winston) and before she knows it, she is crashing through windows and fighting off bad guys. Welcome to Darcyville.

Darcy Walker is Nothing but Verb and it's about to get her into trouble...again.

Holy Crap!!! This book was good. I can never get enough of Darcy. She is always getting into trouble and you always know it's going to be big. Darcy doesn't do small. So here she is trying to solve another case while trying to stay alive.....again. You'd think a girl would learn but not Darcy. She is one heck of a chick. I would've peed my pants with some of the situations she gets herself into. She keeps me on my toes and that's the fun part. I loved every minute of this book!!!! Seriously, people you need Darcy Walker in your lives. You have no idea what you are missing. You have teenage angst, murder mysteries, kidnap victims, and so so much more packed into on awesome sized book. I'm not going to be a blabber mouth and give you all the deets because then you'd know what's going to happen and where is the fun in that? One more thing before I go. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING AJ, WITH AN ENDING LIKE THAT?!?!?!? Do you like to torture me? Because that's what you are doing. I feel like a part of my soul is missing and it can only be replaced with the next book. I cried in this book, laughed out loud like an idiot (my grandmother thought I was insane) and I just love the adventures Darcy takes me on. So how about you dolls go out and buy No Brainer to see what all the fuss is about. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Dylan, you sexy piece of man flesh, you. Please come to Alabama so I can love on you. :D *sobs* Ok, now that I got that out. LOL. Dylan is Darcy's best friend and he plans to keep it that way. You mess with Darcy, you mess with him....and trust me you don't want to go down that road. You couldn't have a better friend than him. Yes he yells at Darcy sometimes, but that's because he cares. I want a Dylan in my life. ;)

Darcy, you are one crazy chick, who I love and adore. I'm talking like they are real...say something about it. O.O  Anyways she can't stay still and has diarrhea of the mouth in the most crucial of when a gun is pointed at her. I would like to be in her mind for a day.. and then again I don't. I don't think I would be able to handle it. When you can't find her solving crimes, she is probably munching on a cookie. :D


In one instant, he poured all that hot-blooded animal magnetism onto Mary. My temperature shot up. The room swayed. I swear if there’d been a nun around, she would’ve dropped her robe and begged, make me a bad-girl Dylan … please.

About the author

A. J. lives in Cincinnati with her husband, two feministic daughters, an ADD dog, a spoiled hamster, and an unapologetic and unrepentant addiction to Coca-Cola. She studied English, Journalism, and Political Science at Morehead State University and left the business world when her daughters were born. Her love for suspense and a good story was born from watching Mystery Science Theater with her sister during childhood. That and any B-movie with comedic undertones they could get their hands on.

From a small town in Kentucky, her sister and she lived in their imaginations on a regular basis, and A.J.'s love for the bizarre and paranormal still holds true to this day. She loves roller coasters, scary movies, and haunted houses and the weird sense of accomplishment it gives her when she can make it through without keeling over.

If Life has taught her anything, it's the need to acquire a wicked sense of humor, come up swinging, and to never, ever give matter what obstacle is in front of you.

When she's not riding that razor-thin line between creativity and insanity, she likes to read, watch too much cable TV, or cheer like a banshee at her daughter's sporting events.

A. J. loves to connect with fans! You can find her via Twitter and Facebook or send an email.
