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.
One Foot in the Grave is the second novel in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. As with the first novel, it's hard-hitting and fast paced. There's a lot of blood and guts; there's a lot of fairly explicit sex.
Being a romantic at heart, I enjoy the relationship between Cat and Bones. They love and protect each other, but don't let each other get away with any crap. They scream one minute and kiss the next.
Some aspects of the book don't click for me. Like ghouls. What exactly is the point of them in the book and the scene of them making one was kind of high on the ick factor. Also, it drags some in the middle, the talking and preparation.
It's a good series and I plan to keep reading. Keep in mind this is definitely not a book for younger audiences!
I give this book 3 Bookworms.
