Oh, Bones.... be still my heart. I'd let him change me into a vampire any day! Cat, you crazy bitch, it took you long enough to jump on that!
The writing is a little immature, but I liked the book regardless. It was a fast read, and oh my there were some steamy scenes! Everyone has been saying how much Bones reminds them of Spike from Buffy. I think I agree.
Cat's goal in hunting vampires is revenge against her father who ruined her mother's life. She ends up teaming up with Bones, a master vampire/bounty hunter, and together they make a kick ass team. Along the way, of course they fall for each other. This book has some great, great lines.
“I'm saying that I'm a moody, insecure, narrow-minded, jealous, borderline homicidal bitch, and I want you to promise me that you're okay with that, because it's who I am, and you're what I need.” - Cat
“You're not a woman," he said finally. "You're the Grim Reaper with red hair!”- Bones
“MTV and video games have solved that problem as far as most of humanity goes. That, and telly, as it were.”
“Telly?” Who was that?
He grunted in amusement. “Television, of course. Don’t you speak English?”
“You sure don’t,” I muttered.
Shaking his head, he frowned at me.”
“No, I'm too tired to run, and you're too fast. You'd only catch me." "That's right, luv." Softly, but with unyielding resonance. "if you run from me, I'll chase you. And I'll find you. Bones said.”
