I've been a greedy reader, taking, taking, taking and not giving back. I'll be vague because the lesson learned here is do the review right away, not a month later.
5 STARS for One Foot in the Grave (Nigh Huntress book 2) by Jeaniene Frost jumps right into the action. Cat starts off lonely and deadly, but at least she has her mom. Yay! The relationship between Cat and her mom is one of my favorite parts of this series because the mom is a total shit and Cat is learning she should be pissed about it. Bones is a shining knight in this installment. There's a lot of "that's my man" drama, but no one does jealous girlfriend like Cat. Oh, the girl cracks me up. And no one does hardcore sex scenes like Bones. Whoa. If you love adult paranormal romance, this one throws in humor and gore. How cool is that?
4.5 STARS for At Grave's End (Night Huntress book 3) is one massive roller coaster. We meet mega players in the vamp world along with a few of Bones' old vamp buddies. I had a couple issues with this installment, namely a crush that turned bloody infuriating and a whole lot of twists and turns that sometimes didn't add up for me. The battle scenes rocked. The relationship between Cat and Bones is like a paranormal romance staple for me. When things are messed up with my favorite couples from other series, I can hit Night Huntress and swoon over these two violent, possessive soul mates.
4 STARS for NA contemporary romance Tragic by J.A. Huss. You can catch my full review for Tragic on PRUF Reads, but I will tell you this, from the very beginning, I felt connected to Rook. She's not my typical favorite character, but her vulnerability and determination to survive her past carried me through the story. And Ronin had such a strange mix of qualities I kept running through labels for him, controlling, gentle, caring, slutty. Maybe he's all of them, but I like him a lot.
