You can run from the grave, but you can’t hide…

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.



I loved this book and Bones was perfect the entire time. The first book was a lot of explanatins from the past and I got bored, but this time was action from the first second and it made things more interesting to me. Cat is more sure of herself, and I think it’s because she needed to grow a little and get some distance from her mother. This new adventure is set four years after the end in Halfway to the Grave, so Cat had some time to adjust in her new vampire hunter life, plus she’s living alone and trying a new relationship. Her life is not perfect, because there’s no Bones, but I liked to see her grow and learn to live on herself.

Cat is now working for the government and I was scared when they first appeared, but now I just hate her boss, especially after discovering all those things he kept from her. Bones demonstrate a lot of sentiment in this book and the end was such a surprise for me. I barely kept from crying. I think Cat and Bones make a cute couple, but needs to learn a little more about vampire rules before making another mistake soon.

A good surprise for me in this book was Cat’s group, her men are loyal and fierce, plus we can really see they adore her, some of them more than that. But Bones made things perfect for me. Can’t wait to start the next book.
