“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. Original.”

This was, most definitely, a fast-paced book. There is plenty of action, as well as many twists that I didn’t see coming. What I was hoping for, however, did happen, although I wanted it to have happened sooner.
Cat’s mother deserves to be mentioned. She is still her old, abusive self, and it shocks me to see Cat accepting that, and how all that abuse shaped her, for good and for bad. Whenever her mother, Justina, appeared, I got mad, as I knew she was going to spout some nasty stuff. Seriously, that is one character that needs to be taken care of.
I was confused by one thing: the description of how to turn someone into a ghoul. I just couldn’t understand the process, no matter how many times I re-read the description. And the whole Dave thing felt too surreal, in my opinion. Tate was annoying as well.
I’d say that, what I really like here is that the heroine is no damsel in distress, and refuses to be treated as such. The end, however, was a tiny bit heartbreaking, as Cat makes an extremely hard choice.
