Fang Me by Parker Blue
Val and Fang have to find the powerful Encyclopedia Magicka before either of San Antonio’s warring underworld factions locate it, or the consequences will be deadly for the entire city. As usual, Val’s vampire enemies (they still call her The Slayer), want her dead, and even some of her fellow demons may be less than trustworthy, since they'd like to grab the legendary book of spells before she does. Val has a personal claim to the Encyclopedia - her demon father left it to her when he died - but someone stole it recently. And that can’t be good.
Battling vamps and dodging demons, Val struggles to unravel the mystery and find the thief. At the same time, she's fighting her attraction to sweet, sexy Shade, her favorite shadow demon. Rumour has it that Val will lose her part-demon, vampire-fighting powers if she gives herself to him.
With a crowd of vamps and demons out to trick her or kill her, it’s not a good time for her to risk her job as the city's best vampire hunter by falling in love. The stakes are high and aimed right at her heart. But Lola, Val's hungry little lust demon, doesn't like being denied. Will Lola finally get her way?
What’s a part-lust-demon-teen supposed to do? Whatever it takes.
Third book in the Demon Underground series, following Bite Me and Try Me.
Story in this one felt kind of slow to start but was still a good story. The one thing that bugged me about this book was the fact that Val kept referring to Dan as her ex-boyfriend and I never ever read their "relationship" as the boyfriend/girlfriend type. It was really just a couple kisses, small thing but still it bugged me.
Val's relationship with Shade is moving on, making it hard for Val to try and keep her Succubus strengths in play. I also have to admit I figured out a fairly large part of the storyline about halfway through the book. It may have been intentional by the author or I may just read too many books, who knows.
It definitely didn't ruin the book for me, I still loved it and would definitely recommend the series to any of the genre's fanbase.
