Flirting with the Grave...
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father - the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.
In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner - are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.
“So do you remember this place?"

"Hard to forget. This is where you tried to kill me. You were so nervous, you kept blushing. Never had someone try to stake me who blushed so much.”
This is the first book I read by Jeaniene Frost and I was immensely surprised to find out that I loved it!

Halfway to the grave has been sitting for a very long time to my to-read shelf on Goodreads. The main reason for not reading it was because I thought that it was like many other paranormal vamp books. Thankfully, I was wrong.

Cat Crawfield, a 22 year old vampire hunter, isn’t your average human. That’s partly because she isn’t quite a human and partly because she’s a self- trained hunter. The truth is that Cat is a Halfling, half vampire and half human. Cat has always been different, she just didn’t know it. When she was 16, her mother revealed the truth to her: 16 years ago, Cat’s mother was brutally attacked by a vamp and later discovered that she was pregnant. After finally learning the truth, Cat decides to avenge her mother by going after her kind. Her “tasks” are always successful, until she’s caught by a vampire bounty hunter.

Enter Bones, a vampire who hunts his own kind1 Bones is known by many manes but is feared by one. When he encounters Cat, Bones first thought is to kill her, thinking that she’s just a human used by another vamp as a lure to kill vamps. So, when Cat admits that she’s a halfling, Bones is reluctant to believe her. But what he can’t ignore is Cat’s unique set of abilities.

Above everything, Cat wants to capture and kill he father. When Bones proposes a deal to her: help him capture his prey and in return he will deliver her father to her, Cat can’t but agree.

I can’t believe how wrong I was about this book! I thought it was another vampire hunter meets vampire hunter and fireworks explode but I was wrong (and I’m glad). Cat and Bones were two extraordinary characters, who finally met their match. I loved their journey. Everything about this book was just so original. The way the main characters met, the deal they struck, Cat’s training (I call that Bones’s playtime because those scenes were hilarious and very seductive) and also I loved how Cat changed her way of thinking about her kind (she thought every vamp was evil but she found out that Bones was no normal vamp).

Cat and Bones were a powerful couple, off the charts sexy, madly in love and beyond funny. I loved how Bones went from professional to lover in minutes and the way he made Cat feel. She no longer felt like an outsider who doesn’t belong but instead she begun embracing her vamp side.

Full of non-stop action, romance, humor and two great main characters, Halfway to the grace will captivate you.

Totally recommended!
