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