2.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of a Slow Read For Me, February 9, 2013

This is the third installment in the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency saga, and as another reviewer also said, I won't be reading the others. This book, while short in pages (about 115 pages), read as if it were much longer. It was a slow, sometimes tedious, read and it just didn't keep me interested.

Astrid is a Detective and a sensitive with the Chicago police department. Mason is a lycan and an agent with the same police department. They kissed...once. At the time of the kiss, he claimed it was a mistake. Now Mason is all Astrid can think of and wonder why he never kissed her again.

There has been a murder of a vampire on a floating casino and Astrid has been called in to help with the case. Unfortunately, things go very wrong and Astrid is temporarily relived of her duties.

Both of these characters have issues, which can make for an angst-filled read at times. Astrid is one of those `heroines' that seems to weep or to be holding back tears on nearly every other page and Mason is the type of male who doesn't want to talk, to explain things or to even treat Astrid as the competent Detective she supposedly is.

The characters never seemed to develop, the sex was a bit bland and somewhat contrived and the story itself was a bit unbelievable, with a typical plot device to sew up the loose ends.
