Synopsis: Alexandra Monzelle is a hard-fighting, heat-packing Seattle vice cop, and she’s not much interested in being protected. Her short skirt and sex-kitten heels are tools to lure her suspects into talking about the deadly new drug hitting the streets. She can take care of herself and then some. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to get that through to Kellach Dunne.
Kellach is a fresh import from Dublin, and he’s landed at the heart of a vicious motorcycle club that deals in guns, narcotics, and mayhem. He’s all male, all rough power—and all interference in her damn investigation. Maybe he’s one of the good guys. Maybe not. Lex knows an affair with an immortal like him would risk everything. No matter how delicious he looks…
What I thought about the book:I can’t make up my mind on this one. I enjoyed it. The story was really good but I wasn’t into the relationship between Kell and Lex. Lex annoyed the crap out of me. She was overly stubborn and repeated the fact that she’s a cop to every character and herself constantly.
The lore of the world is interesting. The witches seem to be like werewolves but they don’t shift. They got the whole long life and mating thing going on.
There’s a few instance where they try to explain the magic via science. I hate when they do this in fantasy books. You don’t need to explain it, it’s magic! But that’s just a pet peeve of mine.
I found the first 140+ pages boring, the pacing was slow and action minimal. It picks from half way point, though, and is worth finishing.
It was good, not great, I’ll probably read the next one but I’m not in a hurry to read it.
