From Goodreads: 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.

What I Loved: Bones! I really love that the roles were a little reversed in this book. Bones was much more comfortable with who he is and how he feels than Cat was. It made their interactions unique because usually both are apprehensive. I also loved what a total gentleman Bones was in every sense of the word. Yet, he was plenty alpha type of male and had his “bang on the chest” moments. I also enjoyed the ma …more Publisher: Avon

What I Loved: Bones! I really love that the roles were a little reversed in this book. Bones was much more comfortable with who he is and how he feels than Cat was. It made their interactions unique because usually both are apprehensive. I also loved what a total gentleman Bones was in every sense of the word. Yet, he was plenty alpha type of male and had his “bang on the chest” moments. I also enjoyed the main “case” (for lack of a better word) that they were working on. It was quite the thriller and through that story you learned a lot about the Vampire world that Jeaniene has created.

What I Liked: I really liked Spade, though he wasn’t in it enough. I also really liked how all the supporting characters each added something needed in the story. Even the characters I thought were annoying were needed.

Complaints: So did not like the end but I have book 2 already so it will make it all better, right?

Audiobook specific review: At the beginning, I had a hard time with the voice for Bones. He sounded like a really old man but after getting used to it, it was fine. I thought the “reader” did a really good job with everyone else in the story. Even Bones, after hearing where he was from and how old he was, her voice for him made sense. It was just a bit creepy in the beginning.

Why I gave it a 4: This was a great read/listen (I did a little of both with this book)! It was well paced, funny, well told, and engaging from start to finish!

Who I would recommend it too: PNR readers (though I think I am the last to read it) and also UF readers because it is edgier than the typical PNR.
