Bite Me by Parker Blue
Life after high school is tough enough without having to go 15 rounds with your inner demon. Thrown out of the house by her mother, Val puts one foot in front of the other and does the only thing that seems to make any sense - she takes aim at the town vampires. A stake a day, keeps the demon at bay. (But don't call her Buffy. That makes Lola, her demon, very cranky.)
Her dark side makes everyday life a roller coaster, but means she's perfect for her night job as a bounty hunter. San Antonio's vampires are out of control, and it's up to Val, her faithful hellhound Fang, and her new partner, a handsome San Antonio police detective, to get the deadly fangbangers off the city streets.
Soon enough she finds herself deep in the underbelly of the city, discovering the secrets of the Demon Underground and fighting to save those she loves. Whether they love her back or not.
Why have I never heard of this book before now? I loved the premise of this book and really enjoyed the writing. Parker Blue wrote a great cast with an awesome story.
I loved Val and totally felt her confused feelings about her family. Totally hated her mother. That was the point though and her mother really came across as a complete bi-a-tch! You can't help but hate her.
And I love, love, LOVE Fang. He's such an adorable little hellhound, although I always have a soft spot for animals, especially humanised ones.
I thought this didn't come out until the end of this month but apparently it's been out for a while and it's actually the 3rd book that's out this month. The good thing is this means I have plenty to read before I catch up with everyone else.
Definitely recommended if you like your paranormal based YAs.
