She's fire. He's fangs. It's a match made in...Ohio?
My Review: 4 Stars!
Cassie McGowen is the step daughter of a high ranking Purist and when she uncovers his plot to bomb the meeting place of peace negotiations between the human and paranormals, she knows that she has to warn someone. As she's investigating the alley next to the building where the talks are being held she runs into Cambridge Sutton who happens to be one of the leaders of the Bureau of Paranormal Investigations and a member of one of the ruling paranormal families.
Cambridge can't explain why he is drawn to the alley but when he sees Cassie for the first time he releases why, she is his mate. After hearing her warning about the bomb, Cambridge and team just barely get the building evacuated before it goes off. A purist suicide bomber finds Cassie in the alley helping the paranormals and sets off the detonator. During the explosion everyone in the alley learn that Cassie is more than human as she shields Cambridge and herself from most of the blast.
Cambridge and his team take Cassie back to the place they are staying at where they find out about her connection to the purist leader and she learns more about the magic inside of her. The two are unable to resist the intense draw to each other and Cambridge claims Cassie as his mate.
This was a quick, steamy little read. My only complaint is that it was a little too short, Cassie and Cambridge's relationship seemed a bit rushed, but when you have a fated mates storyline, that's to be expected. So no harm, no foul, it worked. I just really enjoyed their characters and would have loved to read more about them. The supporting characters were hilarious and I would love to see a story about Mimi and Finn someday! *hint hint* :)
