    WOW...just WOW! I loved, loved, loved this book! Cat and Bones are back with bite in

    , and as amazing as the first book was, this one’s even better.

    Cat’s kick-ass vampire slaying is ramped up much higher this go round, and we also get a nice appetizingly, mouth-wateringly luscious, juicy Bones fix that had me melting like an ice cream cone on a hot summer day...Y-U-M! There’s lots of fast paced, high-octane action, witty laugh-out-loud humor, sarcastic, hilarious dialogue, an uproariously fun catfight, and smokin’ hot romance, including one delectably erotic sex scene that almost necessitated calling the fire department to hose me down when I nearly burst into flames! Seriously, it’s one of the hottest scenes I’ve ever read because it consists of some very delicious, tantalizing possibilities/fantasies (fangs included) of having a doting vampire for a lover whose sole desire is to deliver ultimate, exquisite pleasure. Bones is flat-out one of the sexiest, most deliciously yummy bad-boy romantic heroes ever, and he definitely rivals and exceeds Edward and The Brothers for my very top favorite, hottest vamp! Marry me, Bones!!!!

    Here are a couple of funny quotes from the book that I liked:

    Cat chasing down a vamp, (page 111)

    ...“cursing my heels and debating whether it was faster to stop and take them off--damn ankle straps!--or keep running with the potential neck breakers. Wouldn’t that make a charming epitaph?

    .”

    Bones trying to prove that Cat still has feelings for him, (page 112)

    “It was if you were sending me a bloomin’ valentine.”

    So if you like bad-ass, butt-kicking heroines, uber sexy vampire heroes, and a fun paranormal/urban fantasy romance with a terrific mix of thrilling action, dark humor, and hot sex, give Cat and Bones a read...you won’t be disappointed! Verrry big 5 stars!

    *One of my very top favorite PNR reads ever!

    *A top favorite PNR series!

    *Cat and Bones are my favorite romance/PNR couple!

    *Bones is my all time #1 top favorite hot bad-boy vampire hero!

    Yay Bones and Cat are back in, One Foot in the Grave, the 2nd book in the Night Huntress series. And they are just as awesome and kick ass as they are in the first book. This book picks up right where the last book leaves off. At the end of the last book, Halfway to the Grave , Cat leaves Bones to protect him , and her mom. She goes to work for Homeland Security Paranomarl dept. This book starts 4 years later. Cat does her job, hangs out with her friend Denise, and trains her team, but she isn't happy. She misses Bones and still loves him. when she runs into Bones again at her friend Denise's wedding all those feeling that she tried to bury come rushing to the surface. When Bones tells her that he has been looking for her since the day she left him, that he still loves her and that he isn't going away, because she is in danger, She loses all her fight and takes him back. Now that she has her man back all she has to do is, keep her mom and boss from killing him, keep herself from getting killed, and find out who put a hit on her head. Just another day in Cat's life!

    Bones is the sexiest vampire ever! He was even better in this book. I loved how he handled Justina (Cat's mom). His love for Cat was unconditionally and unwavering. He fought for her, searched for her, and never gave up on her. I loved Bones jealous side, but I feel he acted like a saint, because I would have killed Tate. Cat was as bad ass as ever. I love that she really shows some growth in this book, standing up to everyone, and not letting them trash talk Bones, or all vampires in general. She has a confidence in this book that was just sexy. And a smart mouth that had me laughing hard.

    I missed Bones so much in the parts of the book when he was out of the picture, but I still loved Cat so much that it didn't take away from my enjoyment of this book. That first time Bones said "Hallo Kitten" I squealed, bouncing up and down in my seat, clapping like a idoit yelling Yay Bones is back! Bones and Cat have such a strong connection. There is some ex drama in this book and of course Tate drama(Tate is one of Cat's team mates, but he is in love with her). OMG OMG OMG chapter 32. The sex in chapter 32 holy hell, it set my body on fire, melted my bones, made me start shaking, and left me basking in the afterglow. Fuck but that was the single best sex scene I have ever read ever. Ever! Bones is such a dirty naughty boy Dayum! I wanted to stab Bones's ex Annette and I was so happy when Cat beat the shit outta her and then of course stabbed her!

    Tons of action, amazing characters, and a great plot. I love this series and I can't wait to read the next one. I am a Bones and Cat fangirl for life!

    4 years ago, Bones made a promise (a threat? a friendly reminder?):

    Cat never expected to see him again. She had tried to push him away in order to protect him, but she never liked what she did. They were together for just a few months, but she still loves him. Now she has an important job to do in the Homeland Security Paranormal department. Not very different to the one she used to do when she was working with Bones. She still plays

    4 years ago, Bones made a promise (a threat? a friendly reminder?):

    Cat never expected to see him again. She had tried to push him away in order to protect him, but she never liked what she did. They were together for just a few months, but she still loves him. Now she has an important job to do in the Homeland Security Paranormal department. Not very different to the one she used to do when she was working with Bones. She still plays the role of bait in missions in order to catch bad vampires. Having a beating heart, nobody suspects that she is half vampire.

    Fate will bring Bones back to her. When Cat’s best friend gets married, Cat will be surprised to learn that the best man is Bones.

    Bones and Cat “shockingly” (yeah right) will be together again, but this time there will also be lots of jealously in their relationship.

    There will be Annette drama.

    There will be Tate drama.

    Cat will prove to be a badass possessive half-vampire (

    )

    Bones will prove to be a cheeky bastard possessive vampire master (

    )

    Don’t miss Chapter 32! Take your time reading it and better read it when you are alone…

    I don't know if Jeaniene Frost planned all along to do what she did in ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE, the second installment of her NIGHT HUNTRESS series, or if she adapted after reader feedback . . . Either way, it was an excellent call.

    In HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE, Cat Crawfield was slammed with many, many truths that grossly conflicted with her upbringing. She was distraught and confused, and rightfully so . . .

    In HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE, Cat Crawfield was slammed with many, many truths that grossly conflicted with her upbringing. She was distraught and confused, and rightfully so . . .

    BUT.

    As understandable as it was for Cat to struggle with her new worldview, it was also frustrating and more than a wee bit tiresome.

    So what do we do?

    *tips hat to Frost* *admires ingenuity*

    Four years in which Cat has time to grow and mature, to accept herself and her abilities, to come to terms with her new reality.

    It makes for an infinitely more likable Cat.

    Oh, she's still not perfect. She's brash and executes secondary plans without a full grasp of the vampire world she's entering, but still . . . a

    improvement.

    The cast of secondary characters is greatly expanded in addition to the character development of our old favorites. Justina in particular is as entertaining as she is conniving:

    As for the plot . . . *grins evilly* . . . it was FANGTASTIC.

    When last we saw Cat, she was forced to leave Bones. To protect him. To protect her mother (stupid cow). Misguided as she was, she had good reasons for slinking away the second his back was turned.

    But this is Bones.

    He's not going to let her go without a fight, and, man alive, their reunion is . . . so much fun. It's horrible, really. Mortifying for Cat on so many (deserved) levels, but so, so fun.

    And as random as what brought them together was, it was excellent timing. Cat had a run in with Bone's sire who now sought to add her to his collection of rare and beautiful things.

    Like a painting. For his wall.

    Bastard.

    Then there's the night before the big confrontation . . . If you're familiar with this series, you know what I'm talking about. The night when Bones is determined to show Cat that he wants no one but her . . . The night where he DOESTHETHING.

    It's probably the single hottest vampire sex scene I've ever read. *loins are aflame*

    SO. A definite improvement that I highly (HIGHLY) recommend. *fans self* *is useless* *doesn't care*

  • Kristen

    I love this book. I love Cat and Bones. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite paranormal couples. The only reason this book isn't a 5 star read is because I had a hard time staying engaged in the plot during the first 9 chapters. Frankly, I was bored out of my mind until the author stopped dragging out Bone's reappearance into the storyline. Other than that,

    is a fantastic, enthralling, and sexy as sin read.

    Bones has some of the most humorous lines I’ve ever read in paranormal romance books. But I have to hand it to Cat because she had the best line in the whole book:

    I love Bones & Cat together because I know I'm in for a fun adventure. My only fault I had with this story was the beginning of the book because it lacked Bones. I found myself struggling to stay interested in what was happening with the plot line. Once Bones showed up I was all in.

    I listened to this one and was a little weirded out that the

    for Noah is the same voice the narrator used for a different book: Flat Out Celeste (Justin). I’m glad he didn’t play a very big role in the book because it was off putting to hear that voice and think of Justin from the other book.

    Overall I enjoyed the audio and found myself entertained when Bones was calling the shots. Now that I'm hooked on the series I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment in Night Huntress series.

    ?

    Well, the theme and word for the day is buttsecks.

    As in:

    Now, I'm a shameless, wanton hussy with super magical slut powers, just like any other girl, but some things just kind of throw me off. Like buttsecks.

    Buttsecks.

    Yes, I'm not spelling it right on purpose.

    Cat has been working in her secret organization for four years and hasn't seen Bones since she dumped him when she suddenly finds herself the target of a bounty and...Well, I don't care about the rest because there's buttsecks!

    Like the first book, One Foot in the Grave contains a lot of sex, action, supernatural dudes and only moderate-to-light buttsecks.

    Buttsecks.

    The storyline is quite good with a clever little ending which contains absolutely no buttsecks at all.

    The whole story is a bit of a blur. Tatiana tipped me off to the fact that there could possibly be buttsecks present. Interested, and ever increasingly perverted, I decided to see how the author would pull it off and what the author would describe it like. So basically, for me, this story started out with a beginning that was lacking in buttsecks, buttsecks, and the end of the story that was buttsecks-free.

    Now I'm wondering why the author decided to do this. Was it to be different? To recreate a norm? To show this as a normal part of couple's love lives that is often not spoken about?

    If it's the first then it almost certainly worked for me. I've already used buttsecks thirteen times in this review and I'm almost certainly going to use it more (buttsecks!)

    If she's creating a norm in fiction, or to show a little seen side of secks acts that aren't talked about in polite society, then I can't, as a reader, relate but I can appreciate her for her efforts.

    It was certainly different... I can't say that I found it a huge turn on to read about, but luckily Frost threw in several other moments to kind of even it all off.

    So, in closing... buttsecks.

    That's all I have to say, folks.

    Buttsecks.

    A good read, but nowhere near as gripping and emotionally involving as the first Night Huntress installment.

    I had tons of fun readng One Foot in the Grave because of the wit, snarkiness, and generally funny moments all over the book. This one resembled the last book in that way. I've picked out some of my favorite quotes/passages:

    So needless to say I laughed a lot in the process of reading. This book made me very happy.

    However I did have some issues with it. For one, Cat slut-shames a lady at a wedding, and I can't stand people who slut-shame. How can women do that to each other? I expected better from Cat.

    My biggest problem was Bones and Cat's relationship. Even after spending 4 years apart, when they meet again it's like nothing can ever bring them apart again. I'm glad Cat and Bones are so perfect for one another, but it doesn't motivate me to keep reading. If no obstacle can create serious conflict in their relationship, then why should I read about it? No conflict = nothing driving the plot = nothing to interest me. I could just congratulate Cat and Bones on their perfect love lives and move on to a different series.

    So Cat is working for the government: stabbing people and getting paid for it. A regular white-collar, tax paying job. But without boy-toy Bones, she is lonely and there's some friend who just hangs around and tells her to get some:

    I had some high hopes for Denise, her introduction into the supernatural world really set up some possibilites:

    However, her friendship

    so whatever.

    Cat's character definitely matured more, realizing the dangerous position she was in and being more cautious:

    But for all you

    that needs a heroine threatening to beat people up all the time,

    So Bones tracks her down at the agency and was somehow both extremely helpful and aggravating at the same time

    This book also (thankfully) answered some of questions about Bones(ooo backstory). Plus They were both trying to figure out their place within the vampires society together.

    Other characters only had importance if Cat and Bones were fighting them and that was it.

    There was a vibe of the

    where vamps all went to clubs to get drunk and feed off of humans. It was fine for the first book

    Well lo and behold: this book delivered with wayyy more sophisticated societies and

    being the main one who was part of Bone's pastttttt.....

    One of the best scenes was definitely Annette vs Cat followed by a clean-up afterwards where Annette

    Lol

    One thing I definitely noticed was the

    They were more 3D and some of them were pretty funny/interesting so it added to general story.

    . This group of guys were pretty hilarious- training, stabbing, and shamelessly flirting with each other.

    The banter between them was pretty great at times

    ( side note there was wayyy 2 much "mommy issues" in there)

    Then of course

    that Cat ironically teaches even though the first book was about beating this very thought into her stubborn head..?

    For a sequel it wasn't bad. An entertaining read, but didn't live up to expectations.

    I would read it if the first book really sparked your interest but I doubt I'll be reading the rest of the series.

    This will be just me ranting instead of writing a review. But it has a few spoilers.

    We pick up the story 4 years after the events of Halfway To The Grave. Cat is now Commander Cat (lawl), and she leads a special government team. She broke up with Bones and hasn't seen him since. She was never subtle to begin with, but now Cat is so goddamn hot, it seems like everybody around her is constantly trying to get in her pants.

    This will be just me ranting instead of writing a review. But it has a few spoilers.

    We pick up the story 4 years after the events of Halfway To The Grave. Cat is now Commander Cat (lawl), and she leads a special government team. She broke up with Bones and hasn't seen him since. She was never subtle to begin with, but now Cat is so goddamn hot, it seems like everybody around her is constantly trying to get in her pants. In the first book, Bones provided enough distractions to keep things interesting, but he's nowhere to be seen in the first half of the book. *yawns*

    Cat is bordering on pathetic; she took the same last name as her former lover, she got the same tattoo on her hip, she hasn't slept with anybody since Bones and she spends her days snapping nasty comments at people, and thinking of Bones and his tongue. Obviously she is completely oblivious to all the admirers she has, because that's what a Mary Sue is supposed to do, right? Tate has to spell it out for her. And even then she doesn't get it.

    The way Cat and Bones meet again is just one big followup of convenient plot devices. Cat has a best friend now, who gets married to a computer genius, completely out of the blue. (she is probably on honeymoon for the rest of the book because we don't hear from her again) And you already know this genius is going to be very useful some day (more like 10 chapters later). And you already know who is going to show up at the wedding. Only a massive amount of self-restraint causes Cat to keep herself in check when she sees Bones standing there in front of her, at the wedding. Which is completely out of character, since it's kind of her trademark. For example, when she meets the first vampire Bones made. Which is of course a woman. Who is in love with Bones. Who tries to scare Cat away by commenting on the massive amounts of sex they had over the past centuries. Result = Catfight.

    Of course, they hook up again, and then I finally got to read the famous Chapter 32 my friends kept talking about. WTF was up with that? I kept thinking about pigs, because

    once told me they have 30-minute orgasms. That's pretty much what Cat went through for an entire night. With an audience. And with Bones boldly going where no man has ever gone before. Ick. I'm afraid to pick up the next book, because I'm positive the words 'golden' and 'shower' are going to pop up in the same sentence.

    I'm not saying I didn't have fun while I was reading this but there was just too much stupid in there. Things like Cat 'forgetting' she was half naked while she paraded around for everybody to see, the completely ridiculous impromptu marriage (basically they cut their hands, slapped them together and said "by my blood, let's do this shit"), the OMFGICANTLIVEWITHOUTYOU romance... That and about 409 other little things that got on my nerves. After a while I was thinking "If I see her 'palming' one more goddamn silver knife I'm going to slap a bitch. Because that's basically all she does, besides being a foulmouthed bitch to everybody and shagging Bones. Meh.
