About the book

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 newfound 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.

My Thoughts

If you saw my review of One Foot in the Grave you know I accidentally read that first. Oops, that’s what happens when you don’t look a series up online and just grab a book off your TBR bookshelf. I am glad I read book 2 first though because I really enjoyed it and it left me wanting more. In comparison this book was ok. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it and the romance was a little too insta-love for me. I really dislike books where the characters fall in love so easily and quickly. I like seeing relationships build from something other than lust. The storyline is interesting and I love Bones but this book didn’t blow me away so I’m glad I had read book 2 which had hooked me enough into wanting to start book 3 right away.
