Review of Urban Fantasy Romance novel, One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress) by Jeaniene Frost

Title: One Foot in the Grave
Series: Night Huntress, book 2
Author: Jeaniene Frost

Official Synopsis
You can run from the grave, but you can't hide . . .

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won't let her get away again

My Review
First let me just say: THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!
Okay, I just had to get that out of the way.

This book in one sentence: An action-packed, sensual romance-filled, mystery-chasing thrill ride of a lifetime that will leave you begging for more Bones and Cat Action.

Cat is back and after years away from the love she left behind, she is still finding it hard to move on. Luckily she is busy as she heads up a secret government branch that deals with all the nasty supernatural buggers that go bump in the night. Her life changes when a hit is put on her head and an unexpected encounter brings her to the man she loves and fears the most...Bones.

Bones promised Cat that if she ran, he would find her. he just didn't think that there would be other looking for her...dead or alive. Now he must protect the woman he loves the most and the one woman who broke his heart when she left. Together they must find the person who wants her dead, but what they find is the last thing they expect.

When your past comes back to haunt you, is it possible to start over? Or will the past just put you one foot in the grave?

This book is amazing. I zipped right through it - work, chores, and husband be damned....shhh - don't tell him I said that. This book has everything that I want: scorching romance, heart-pumping action, and a combination of laughs, thrills and mysteries that left me glued to the pages until the very end.

Cat is still the bad-ass with a kind heart that wants to protect everyone and that usually means she jumps right into the heat of action without thinking. Not to worry, Bones is always there to catch her when she falls. He is not the quintessential hero: he's brass, super cocky and has the mouth of a trucker. But, he loves Cat whole-heartedly and will do any and everything to protect her....cue the swooning.

These two are electric and they are now one of my favorite couples in Paranormal romance and urban fantasy. This book is even better than the first, and that is no easy task!

One Foot in the Grave is rated 5 Fangs:

What is your favorite scene in this book? When Cat was walking down the aisle and she spots Bones...OMG! I was literally jumping up and down...with the book in my hand cause I wasn't going to stop reading..lol

Review of Urban Fantasy Novel, Halfway To The Grave (Night Huntress Series) by Jeaniene Frost

Title: Halfway to the Grave
Series: Night Huntress, book 1
Author: Jeaniene Frost Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy

Official Synopsis
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership. In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her new found status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

My Review
This book in one sentence: An action-packed, danger-filled story with murder, mystery and thigh-clenching, need-to-take-a-cold-shower romance that will have you racing through the pages and leave begging the author for me.Wow, that is one long sentence...lol

This story centers around Cat. She is a freak of nature with a mission. As a half-vampire, half-human, she uses her additional abilities to hunt down evil vampires in order to avenge her mothers rape by one of the undead, resulting in the birth of our bad-ass heroine. Her plan was simple - hunt as many of the undead suckers down until she's dead or they no longer exist. She was planning to do just that, until she met her match in Bones.

Bones is a Master Vampire and a sort of bounty hunter, killing vamps with a price on their head. When a beautiful human seems to be eyeing him in a dangerous way, he lets her think she has bested him, but he turns the tables. He soon finds out that she is not a human, but a half-breed. One that could prove useful on his vigilante deals. He makes her an offer she can't refuse, be his partner and together they can kill a bunch of blood-suckers, or die. She chooses t partner up with him, neither knowing that this partnership will change their lives forever.

This book is AWESOME! Where have you been all of my life?! Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. Heart-pumping action, scorching romance, a snarky fearless heroine who is coming into her own, and a Master vampire with an British accent, tons of power and some serious skills in the bedroom. What's not to love? Every page was filled with murder, mystery danger and action - it was non-stop. I couldn't tear myself away!

Cat is everything I love in a heroine. She is tough, brave, and yet has this vulnerability that makes her relatable. She is truly coming into her own and realizing that she was blinded by prejudice when it comes to vampires, especially Bones.

Bones is not your ordinary hero. He can be cruel, brutally honest, and dangerous, but when he loves - it is whole heartedly. His rough edge makes the tender moments that much more enjoyable. He is swoon-worthy, drool-worthy,take-me-I'm-yours-worthy...you get the picture.

Add of all of those elements I loved and pair it with a shocker, cliff-hanger ending, and "Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner."

This book is a must-read for every urban fantasy and paranormal romance fan. This book is 5 fangs of unputdownable goodness!
