Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost
Serie: Night Huntress #1
Release date: 2007
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.
Lots of laugh out loud moments! This book was hilarious, so much fun! Best dialogue I've read in a very long time, just brilliant. The book is all about sexy vampires and a kick-ass heroine. First of all, Bones, OMG! I loved him, what is not to love? With his Britisch accent and his humor. He seemed so sure of himself the entire time, making Cat (main character) second guess her beliefs that all vampires are bad. He makes Cat grazy with his sex talk and his actions. Omg he is so awesome! Cat is kick ass and I really like her denying her attraction towards Bones. It makes everything so funny. I can't help but put some quotes here.
“Aside from the obvious, Francesca, what do you want in return for supplying information?” Bones asked, getting back to the subject. “You to take me,” she replied at once. “Not gonna happen!” I spat, squeezing him possessively. Three sets of widened eyes fixed on me. That’s when I realized that what I had a firm grip on was no longer his hand.”
“Is that a stake, Bones, or are you just happy with my new dress?” “In this case, it’s a stake. You could always feel around for something more, though. See what comes up.”
“He looked at the box with interest. 'Well, well. Five speeds. Heat and massage. Deep, penetrating action. Sure this isn't yours?”
