Series Jazz #1

Jazz can't decide whether to scorch him with a fireball or jump into bed with him.
Jasmine Tremaine, a witch who can't stay out of trouble.
Nikolai Gregorivich, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire cop on the trail of a serial killer.
The sizzling love affair between Jazz and Nick has been off-again, on-again-for about 300 years. Mostly off, lately. But now Nick needs Jazz's help, and while Jazz and Nick try to figure out their own hearts and resist their ever-increasing attraction, they must steer clear of a maniacal killer with super-supernatural powers. They are surrounded by a hilarious cast of oddball paranormal characters, including Irma, the chain-smoking ghost who haunts Jazz's sports car, Dweezil, her ghoul of a boss, and Fluff and Puff, a pair of bunny slippers with sharp teeth and short tempers (watch your ankles)!

I picked this book up because
What I liked the Most? Fluff and Puff – gotta love a pair of destructive bunny slippers

What I liked the Least? The unanswered questions – they just kept building up

Review: This was one of those “I happened to see it” lucky finds. I laughed my way through this book and believe me that is sometimes exactly what the doctor ordered. I enjoyed the fact while there is romance mixed into this book it seemed more focused (other than a scene or two) on a true suspense & the humor of the situations.

I enjoy a book that takes me through a realm of emotions and this book nailed it. Fair warning – it is on the lighter side of the spectrum, so don’t expect all darkness and gloom – hell a pair of snarky acrophobic bunny slippers are featured through out. It’s not Buffy or Anita Blake, and that is exactly what I was looking for when I found this book. I can’t wait to try the next out.

Recommended to: Fans of paranormal chick lit

Best Quote: “But I don’t wanna go to the grocery store! It’s a mean nasty place with soccer moms blocking the aisles as they talk to their friends or on their cell phones, kids running and screaming all over the place. And Fred, the produce guy, fondles his melons. And I’m not allowed to zap any of them! It’s so not fair!”
