It's an almost four star review because it had a thought provoking story line. Julia Taylor is an interesting career woman who is independent & sensitive, if somewhat unbalanced when it comes to men in her life.
It's a fun read with the exception of the unnecessary "F-bomb" which was over used way too MUCH.
Julia is a half elf on her father's side. Her mother is fully human & clueless about the supernatural events that surround her family.
Julia works for a recruitment agency for paranormals. Mermaids, giants, fairies, elves, trolls, vampires, werewolves & witches are all potential employees seeking work.
She has a meeting to land a huge contract with La Caz Corporation. They are attempting to develop a serum so vampires have no need to feed from humans.
"True Blood" anyone?
She's undone by Nathaniel La Caz who wants to seduce her. Her magic vibrates uncontrollably to the surface each time they interact. The sexual tension builds throughout the book. Her reaction to it is a lot of glass breakage. He is a damphir (half vampire, half human) who craves her elf blood.
Her ex-boyfriend Jasper, a dark magician, is stalking her to create problems every time he has the chance. She waffles about filing a restraining order against him.
Her elf father works for the police department. Julia sees her cousin kidnapped off the street. Then elves & fairies go missing throughout the city. Julia is determined to help find her cousin, Claudia.
Just when things seem to be going well with Nathaniel, there are betrayals on every side.
A caveat, there are some adult situations, graphic sex scenes, as well as violence.
