Well this was entertaining and help spend good 24 hours of my life, night not included.

Cat is a pretty simple character, straight forward without much fuss, seducing vamps at bars and faking innocence until she stakes them for trying to go for the jugular. Pretty basic.

Then of course her rhythm is thrown off when a vampire snatches her during gig gone bad. To her luck he's not the off with their heads type and they struck an uneasy deal.

As training begins Cat is baptized to embrace the powers of her vampire half, while she struggles to get grasps of vampire culture with her human half.

Being half vampire, half human hasn't been easy on Cat, starting with being different. And it's no help that her mother hates vampires with such vigor it's making their relationship strain as Cat works with Bones, the vampire training her, who also teacher her not all vampires are just out for an artery party.

Bones hard to really like in the beginning but you warm up to him later on - mostly I had a problem with his training where he often beat her, suppose it really was keeping with theme of the book, but any 'woman beating' I'm not a fan of.

This book has some juicy secrets coming out, that make you think back of what happened in the first half of the book.

One of the most delicious parts of the book humor wise is the lesson in dirty talk, which made me laugh and blush at the same time.

This entire book is fun, easy to read, and you enjoy the story, but I think I'm done with the series, at least for now. I feel it's for younger people and at 29 I'm bit too old to read it. Don't be fooled though, you'd have to be 18 to read it with the sex scene that's in there.

I'd recommend this to 18-25 year olds mainly, and those who like a good vampire story without horror.
