REVIEW: One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost


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 him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick 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 she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won't let her get away again.

I was so excited to start this book, thinking the ending of book 1 had to be addressed quickly. I wasn’t really wrong, but I was definitely in for a couple surprises. It’s been a few years and Cat as other potential lovers. This made the beginning kind of slow for me. When Bones was finally reintroduced, I couldn’t get enough. The entire process of their full reunion was amazing. The vampire conflict was two-fold. We deal with an old flame of Bones’s which results in one of the hottest chapters I’ve ever read in ANY book. The big one is Bones’s sire and the showdown with him is oh so satisfying. The very end of the book is actually heartwarming, which was a lot better than the ending of book 1.

Bottom Line:

One Foot in the Grave is straight up exquisite. I couldn’t get enough of all the characters and the excitement in the vampire world. The icing on the cake? Chapter 32.
