See my previous Review about Halfway to the Grave 

 

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.

“You know that old saying. Once you go dead, no one’s better in bed.”
I am so Happy…so very very happy.. Cat and Bones are back, and they are better than ever..
4 years have passed since Cat left Bones in Halfway to the Grave, and she has missed him like crazy, and he’s been hunting her.
Cat is such an amazing heroine, she has a level of compassion that astonishes me, but it just proves that she is more human than Vampire, and that is the whole point of her.
“I have been stabbed, shot, burned, bitten, beaten unconscious too many times to count, and even staked. None of those held a candle to the pain I felt at seeing his mouth on hers.”
I love Bones. There’s a scene where he first returns to the end of the book he is a complete scene stealer.

“You know what your problem is, Justina? You’re in desperate need of a good shag. “Not that I’m offering you one myself, mind. My days as a whore ended back in the seventeen hundreds.”

The gin was abruptly sucked back into my lungs as I gasped. He did not just tell my mother about his former profession; sweet Jesus, let me have heard incorrectly!

I hadn’t, and Bones went right on. “… But I have a friend who owes me a favor and he could be persuaded to… Kitten, are you all right?”

I’d stopped breathing as soon as he casually admitted to his prior occupation. Add that to the liquid stuck in my lungs, and no, I wasn’t all right.”

Cat now heads up a team for the government who kills and studies vampires, and she is an amazing leader, which was the bit I had a little problem with. No one is that perfect.
Still, her gin drinking won me over.
“Juan gave Bones the most admiring look he’d bestowed on him yet. “You talked her into going without panties all these years? Madre de Dios, now that’s impressive. I could learn a great deal from you, amigo.”
