Summary (cr: goodreads)

Psychic and paranormal PI Harper Hall isn’t that surprised when her business partner skips town. Really, she can’t help but feel it’s her own fault for trusting a guy named Romeo in the first place. 

But if Harper wants to consult for the police on a high profile case, she’ll need a new partner-- preferably one with some supernatural skills of his own. Enter Noah Riddick, a slayer left jobless by the legalization of vampirism. 

Riddick’s dark secrets and shady past have forced him into exile from human society--an exile he was completely comfortable with until gorgeous and exasperating Harper waltzed into his life. Now, all too aware of how…unlifelike his life has truly been, he agrees to partner with her (as if saying no to Harper Hall was ever really an option). 

Fighting vampires, making immortal enemies, engaging in semi-sadistic interrogation techniques, staging daring rescues…it’s all in a day’s work for this paranormal odd couple. But falling in love? Well…that’s a little trickier. Even for the Semi-Charmed Harper Hall. 

My Review: (also in goodreads)

I definitely enjoyed this novel which showcased a Buffy-ish character. In their world, Psychics and Vampire slayers work together on assignments to get rid of supernatural. After everything fell apart as Harper's partner decided to travel around...squander money and leave the PI business alone with Harper, Harper still did PI work and does night jobs. When Noah Riddick waltzed into her then boring world while she was busily trying to survive, that is where the fun starts. I loved how Harper was not the conventional character: she has wit and she can kick ass. I loved their chemistry and there were times in which I wanted to laugh out loud and swoon at Noah. I could see that this series has potential and I would definitely read the second book.

Till the next read...
