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 Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush 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 Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again. Original.

This book starts off where we left in the last book, just 4 years later. It starts off a little slow without Bones but still very important and fun and pretty much introduces us into Cat’s current life as special agent and her team. It also pretty clear while she left Bones (for his own safety) she never really got over him.
We get to know a lot of new players in this book. Which often can be overwhelming in books, but not in this, it just all fits nicely in the story and each get their own spot and background. All of them are great characters. Some you love, some you will hate and other you not quite not sure about yet. At least that was the case for me.
Cat has grown a lot since last book, even though she was pretty tough already. She just seems to be getting better and better. She is also the leader of her group and taught and still teaches them everything she knows. She is still in search for her father and finds out some really surprising family y secrets. She does finally learn who her father is, plus like I said some other very interesting secrets.
We also learn more about her existence, but not everything. I think they is still a few things to learn about what she is and what all comes with it.
Of course we have Bones….. And he is still the same as in book one, the same Bones we learned to love. He still will do anything to protect and save Cat. He is also very helpful in coming up with information. We get top meet some more people/vamps from his side. Some are great and funny, while others are funny but I hated …or not.
Annette was one of those people, I loved to hate her lol. I really can’t decide, I hate her but I still loved her in the story and hope we get to see more of her.
I loved most of the people on Cat’s team. Though I have to say I have a hate-love relationship with Tate as well.
Overall, this book was very entertaining and I read it almost nonstop, it had humor, gore, action, twists and turns, suspense and plenty of smexy romance. Chapter 32 topped all the other smexy times in the book though.
But there were some things I really wasn’t sure about, I guess I will see how it all comes together in the end before I judge it lol.
Great book I rate it at 4 ½ ★
Some of my favorite quotes
“You know that old saying. Once you go dead, no one’s better in bed.”
“I have been stabbed, shot, burned, bitten, beaten unconscious too many times to count, and even staked. None of those held a candle to the pain I felt at seeing his mouth on hers.”
“And that, Annette, is called Pilates”
“You called her Kitten? And she let you? She put me in a coma for three days when I called her that? My balls never recovered from her smashing them into my spine?” “And well she should have,” Bones agreed. “She’s my Kitten, and no one else’s”
“Wouldn’t that make a charming epitaph? Here lies Cat. Killed not by fang, but Ferragamos.”
