TABT…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.


A great follow-up to Frost’s debut novel, Halfway to the Grave.  I don’t want to give up any spoilers from the previous book, so suffice to say that Cat and Bones have been separated, and Cat is perfectly happy having it stay that way.  Her new “job” as a government operative keeps her more than busy, and most of the time keeps her mind off of her past, and Bones.  But when Bones shows up again, their relationship ignites, and both find themselves fighting for their lives…and their future.


I highly recommend this book.  It drew me in just as much as the first book…the voice was just as distinctive, Cat’s mother was just as infuriating.  This is a fascinating series, and one I’ve gleefully jumped on the bandwagon for!
