Love bites.
Probation sucks.

Thanks to Dante’s recklessness, Aurora is now partners with Valerie: the redheaded, backstabbing vixen.

Dante is in full flirt mode. Fane’s tactics are more ruthless. Something carnal has awakened in Aurora and neither boy is helping tame her cravings.

When a member of the unit’s team is found dead, Aurora and Valerie are sent after a vampire in Sitka, but Aurora suspects the killer’s much closer to home.

*Book 2 in the 'Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter' series*

Another great story from Nikki Jefford! I enjoyed the first Aurora Sky novel so much that I was glad to get the chance to participate in another blog tour and read the sequel. In this book, Aurora and Fane are no longer together, and we get to see more of Aurora with Valerie, Dante, and also her mother. I don't think I have to tell you how rare it is to see a parental figure show up so much in a YA or NA novel - it was refreshing. And I enjoyed seeing Aurora's interactions with Valerie, too, since we got to see Valerie in a different light than just as the man-eating, boyfriend-stealing bitch she's usually made out to be.

I just love that Aurora is such a strong character - she's very multifaceted, and she's grown a lot since the first novel. I also like that she has seriously been re-considering her relationships to those around her, rather than just remaining stagnant with her feelings. Though she really cared for him, Aurora never considered Fane to be the "one true love" of her life, and she is actually aware that there are other options available to her. Bravo! Her world didn't end because she broke up with a boy! Though whether or not she still ends up with him has yet to be seen...I'm not the only one rooting for Dante, am I?

Like the first book, this was a quick read, and it was also well-written. The plot moved at a steady pace, and if I had started this book on the weekend rather than on a work day, I know I would have easily finished it in one sitting. There was a lot going on in this novel, plot-wise, but that's part of what kept it interesting! There was never a dull moment, and I'm curious to find out what happens in book three. If you like paranormal romance with characters that don't fall flat, then I highly recommend this series!

Check Out My Review of Book One:

Nikki Jefford is a third generation Alaskan who found paradise in the not-so-tropical San Juan Islands (Wash.) where she is once more neighbors with Canada in a town without a single traffic light. She loves fictional bad boys and heroines who kick butt.

When she's not reading, writing, working, or out on a nature walk, she's out riding her Suzuki DRZ400SM.
