Flirting with the grave…
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.
We have evil vampries, dumb humans, one hot and powerful vampire bounty huntress, a half-breed vampire hunter and put that all together and we got one damn amazing vampire series and one i say amazing I mean tripe that like time one hundred. Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost is one of the best series out there and if you have not read it yet then shame on you. You NEED to put this author on your must read list, you read this and you will not be sorry.
Cat Crawfield was born different, very different than other people, she was born a vampire, well, half vampire. Her mother was raped by a vampire and later had a child that was her, Cat. And now she has pale skin, her eyes glow like a vampires and she has the strength of a vampire, so she will not go down that easy. I adore this woman. She is a re-headed fiesty, tormented, bitchy woman who just wants to be accepted and loved by her mother like any daughter would. I feel for Cat. Cat goes out and hunts vampires because she believes that her mother will come to love her if she does this. Cat is everything! She is such a bad ass vampire hunter, with hilarious comments most of the time, when i picture her she is the most beautiful heroine out there, just wow. No wonder Bones is taken with her.
“I’m saying that I’m a moody, insecure, narrow-minded, jealous, borderline homicidal bitch, and I want you to promise me that you’re okay with that, because it’s who I am, and you’re what I need.”
Okay, let’s get down to business why I am addicted to this series..BONES!!!!!! Oh, god I cannot get enough of this man! He is up there on my top 5 for sure! Bones is the reason you need to read this book. I would fall for him over and over again. Bones is a 200+ year old master vamp, and gives Cat a run for her money. Bones has this lovely english accent and we get these funny english phases that I just love! Maybe I’m a sucker for english men! haha. But the way he talks you can’t help but love him! Bones is sweet and romantic and is strong and is not afraid to tell you off and he is not one of the evil vamps. Please Bones, I will let you drink from me any day of the week you want.
“Do you think I’m pretty?” I heard myself ask.
Something I couldn’t name flashed across his face.
“No. I don’t think you’re pretty. I think you’re the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen.”
Cat and Bones = EPIC Jeaniene Frost has done quite a job in making us go crazy for this couple and I am recklessly in love with them! Bones makes Cat feel like she is the most beautiful woman in the world and that someone actually loves her. She has never felt love before and with Bones she gets to experience it. Cat is afraid at first and denies everything that has to with Bones and her getting with each other but as time goes on and they spend time with each other he has become someone in her heart that she utterly and deeply cares for.
This dialogue in this book is hilarious. It is romantic and action-packed. You will want to follow through to the very end. The ending has a torturous cliffhanger which (thank god, I have the next book handy) will make you crave for the next book, One Foot in the Grave. The romance in this book is hot, sexy and completely satisfying, also the most funny moments included. This is considered a urban fantasy book, but it has the appeal of a paranormal romance also, basically it is both. Again, if you haven’t checked out Cat and Bones, you need to do so. This is a must-read that definitely needs to be checked out. 10+ STARS!
