***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Welcome to Vegas. Home of the Sin City Collectors. The job description is easy: Bring the offending supernatural in to the Boss and don’t ask any questions.
Nevada Hamilton has learned a few things since becoming a Sin City Collector, and staying away from vampires is one of them. After botching her first Collection, the vamp getting away after causing as much damage as possible, she hasn’t been assigned to another one since.
But when she receives her next playing card, she’s in for a surprise. Not only is a vampire her next target, but they’ve paired her up to make sure she gets the job done right. Refusing a Collection is not an option, but when she discovers who she’s working with, making the mission as difficult as possible for her new partner becomes her top priority…
Being a hellhound isn’t enough to protect Jake Troubadour from Nevada Hamilton, no matter how thick his skin is. Finding out he has to work with the beautiful dhampir, after not seeing her for three years, is a low blow—but Jake is a professional. He takes his Collections as seriously as he does running his bar. He’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done, but after that, he’s out. No more chances for the girl who wrecked his bike and scarred his soul so long ago. But even with his heart dead set against it, this hellhound quickly finds he’s not immune to love after all.
What’s Collected in Vegas, stays in Vegas..
I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this novella, first in a new Sin City Series, for review purposes and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it! This is my first encounter with Amanda Carlson’s writing but after reading this I am sure it won’t be my last.
I love the concept of the “collectors”. I read a LOT of paranormal books and it is always fun when you get to come across something new and exciting! I can’t wait to see what the other authors in this collaboration come up with! If they are half as good as this then count me in!
Amanda brings some brilliant new characters to the page and I am not talking people! She gives us creatures that are generally overlooked or play background roles in many paranormal universes, I mean how many books have you read that are based around a Dhamphir and a Hellhound? Exactly! If you love a good dose of urban fantasy action with a nice dash of hot romance thrown in then you need to pick up your copy STAT!
A solid 4 1/2 stars form me (rounded up as is my policy) V””V
