Jeaniene Frost: One Foot in the Grave

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.

Jeaniene Frost: One Foot in the Grave

Ez a könyv másodszori olvasás után is ugyanannyira tetszik, mint elsőre. Imádom a Cat/Bones közti kémiát, a köztük lévő mély érzelmeket.
A történet is tetszett, a karakterek is – úgy minden, nah.
Bár el kell ismernem, hogy ezt a sorozatot a CatBones pillanatokért szeretem a legjobban. Úgy shipelem őket!

Jeaniene Frost: One Foot in the Grave

Imádom! Nagyon jó volt ez a rész is. A legjobb jelenetek a Justina és Bones közti kis szópárbajok voltak. Fulladoztam a nevetéstől, függetlenül attól, hányan néztek közben elmebetegnek :D A karakterek érdekesek voltak, a történet izgalmas volt, bár Tatet néha tarkón tudtam volna vágni egy jó nagy lapáttal.

Mivel az első kötetnek sem a nyelvezete, sem a történetvezetése nem tetszett magyarul, így ezt a kötetet eredeti nyelven olvastam. Jól döntöttem, sokkal jobban tetszett.
A nyelvezete sokkal jobb, de a történetvezetés nem lett sokkal jobb. Legalábbis nekem nem tetszik… A történet tetszett, jó volt újabb dolgokat megtudni a vámpírokról és a ghoulokról. Kíváncsi vagyok mit hoz még számukra a jövő :)
U.i.: Imádom mikor Bones azt mondja, „Don't fret luv.”

Jeaniene Frost: One Foot in the Grave

Ez az egyik kedvenc részem. Imádom a second chance könyveket,és ebben pont azt kaptam. Cat már most hihetetlen sokat fejlődött.Nem az a kislány akit az első részben megismertünk. Lehet az a 4 év távolság jót tett neki,habár azért faraghatta volna kevesebbre is. Tate,nagyon sajnálom a viszonzatlan szerelem miatt.Más körülmények közt,tökéletes lenne Cat számára,de Bonest nehéz lenne bárkivel is pótolni .

My mother pulled me aside as soon as I left Noah. Her face was florid.
“Do you know what that beast did when you walked away from him at the bar? He winked at me!”
Caught off guard, I laughed. God, that was priceless. She must have had steam coming out of her ears.

Bones gave her a jaded look and then let it rip. “You know what your problem is, Justina? You’re in desperate need of a good shag.”
I downed a gulp of gin to cover the laugh that forced its way out. God, if I’d thought that once, I’d thought it a thousand times!
She let out an outraged huff. Bones ignored it.
“Not that I’m offering you one myself, mind. My days as a whore ended back in the seventeen hundreds.”
The gin was abruptly sucked back into my lungs as I gasped. He did not just tell my mother about his former profession; sweet Jesus, let me have heard incorrectly! I hadn’t, and Bones went right on.
“…but I have a friend who owes me a favor and he could be persuaded to…Kitten, are you all right?”
I’d stopped breathing as soon as he casually admitted to his prior occupation. Add that to the liquid stuck in my lungs, and no, I wasn’t all right.
My mother was oblivious. A torrent of insults erupted from her throat. “Filthy, degenerate, molesting sodomite—”
“Isn’t this a proper flashback to her childhood? You’re more concerned with yourself than your daughter, bloody woman; can’t you see she’s choking?”
Bones pounded me on my back as I coughed to expel the gin from my windpipe. The first breath seared me when it came. My eyes watered profusely, but at least I was able to take in another painful one, and then another.
Reassured that I was breathing again, Bones picked up where my mother left off.
“Sodomite’s incorrect, Justina. Women were my clients, not men. Just wanted to clear that up; I’d hate to have you think something false of me. ’Course, if you don’t trust my recommendation for a shag, I reckon your daughter’s friend Juan might be up for the arduous task of—”

“You called her Kitten? And she let you? She put me in a coma for three days when I called her that! My balls never recovered from her smashing them into my spine!”
“And well she should have,” Bones agreed. “She’s my Kitten, and no one else’s.”

[…] I just elbowed the pretty blonde he'd been speaking to aside and slapped my panties on his chest.
„As soon as I saw you,” I purred, „I knew I wouldn't be needing these.”
That got his attention. […]

„I am going to knock the slut out of you, Annette.” I gritted between clenched teeth. „And that should take some doing, you uppity English tramp!”

Whatever Bones had in mind, I’d deal with him after the wedding. Or I’d pass out. Whichever came first.

„Quit it! Tate, enough of the taunts, and Bones, how old are you? Why don't I just give you a pair of my panties to hang around your neck? Then whenever you feel jealous, you can wave them at whoever's pissing you off.”
„Like you wear panties.” Tate muttered.

She sprang up at once, but not in hostility. On the contrary, she became a blur of cleaning motion, like Martha Stewart on crack cocaine.

" (…) you’re wrong about something, Don. It’s not vampire blood that corrupts—it’s whether the person who drinks it is corrupted to begin with. Hey, don’t take my word for it, look at the guys. They felt that same power, felt how different it could make them…and yet they didn’t turn evil. It doesn’t twist who you are, it only increases it, for better or worse. Remember that, but I have a feeling I’ll have to remind you.”
