“Wolf or vamp? Decide. It has to be now.”

Those were the last words Sam Garrett ever heard—as a human. Now on the para side of normal, the NOPD slammed the proverbial door on his career.

Travis Boudreaux knows exactly how his former partner feels—but when some doors close, the golden window of opportunity opens. Crimes against supernaturals require a new and different approach, and once the Feds show up, the Odd Squad isn’t the only law enforcement game in town.

After a revenge-seeking vampire creates deadly havoc, the new agent-in-charge is on a recruiting mission—and he’s more than ready to fight fire with fire. What do you get when you mix old friends, new enemies, and a license to kill?

Pure dynamite.

Warning: This is an erotic urban fantasy. In this series the vampires don’t sparkle, werewolves kill, and the men sometimes have sex. With each other.


This is the second book in the series.  Sam has been changed into a werewolf after an attack by a vampire that almost killed him.  Travis is involved in this book but it is geared towards Sam.  The writing is awesome.  There is plenty of action.  There are mob bosses and turf wars.  The characters are all male and there is plenty of sex going around.

I enjoyed this book.  It was full of twists and turns and ends with the promise of more but not a cliffhanger.  Sam and Travis have something going on that still is waiting to be uncovered.  I love that the whole of the book isn’t black and white.  The authors give you the real world that is full of good and bad in most people.  They don’t shy away from the brutality of werewolves and vampires or from bad things happening to good people.

The relationships in the book are very complex and sometimes simple.  They really lend to the depth of the story.  I will enjoy seeing where it is all headed.
