Synopsis via Amazon.com
Once, Maya Black was a kick-ass cop patrolling the streets of L.A. She still keeps the city safe, but nowadays her bad guys of choice include demons, werewolves, and assorted nocturnal scum. Something Maya knows a thing or two about. She's a vampire--and not thrilled about it. Payback meet bitch.
Adam Brody hopes Maya is as dangerous as they say she is. He needs her to help rescue his niece Cammie from a ruthless band of vamps, and he's willing to pay--in blood. Trusting her is another matter. Adam has never met a vampire who doesn't lie. Then again, he's never met anyone like Maya, who fills him with a desperate need that ignites into explosive, no-holds-barred encounters. . .
The premise: Maya, a cop turned vampire. Maya, a vampire who hunts monsters, to include her own kind. A vampire that others go to for help. Adam travels across the country to hire Maya to help him find his niece who has been kidnapped by vampires. But there is a mystery surrounding Adam (no spoilers). Is Adam human or supernatural?
The story starts out kind of slow. Miss Eden gives you the basic background of how Maya became a vampire. She then introduces Adam and things start to build from there. Maya is a kickass, badass vampire. She is different though. Maya is a vampire with scruples.
To be honest I am having a hard time coming up with much to say. It was a slow going story until about halfway through the book. That doesn't mean it was a bad story because it wasn't. I really enjoyed it when the action was high. The sexual tension was tight until Maya and Adam got it on-which didn't take long. Both Maya and Adam are full of themselves without being irritating. They knew their limits and made no bones about it.
While I finally ended up enjoying this book, I can't say there is much about it that really stands out. I did enjoy the way Miss Eden kept the mystery about Adam going. I enjoyed finally learning the secret behind Adam. The relationship between Adam and Maya had just enough angst to make it interesting and then the final cementing of their relationship.
So, while this isn't one of my favorites, I don't feel like I wasted my time either.
