Bad Cop Angela McAllister

I loved Angelas’ first book in this series, Bad Mouth so was keen to read this. I wasn’t disappointed 🙂 Like the first book we’ve a female lead who doesn’t like the male lead, this time because he’s a Cop and she has personal reasons for disliking the police. He’s hot, she’s attracted but as she tells him she’ll never date a cop….famous last words.
Anyway, they get off on the wrong foot when she takes a new murder case, as the victim is newly turned she says he’s classed as human so under her jurisdiction, and Ian says he’s vampire so he should have been informed. They get thrown together on it; Ian suspects its connected to one he was involved with in the past, but if its the same killer then the person he killed in his job as a Tracker was innocent possibly, so he doesn’t speak out til he knows more. Of course secrets worm their way out, and Alice is furious that he’s not sharing. There’s the attraction constantly sparking between them, along with the irritation they both have for the other. As they learn more about each other, and the reasons why they hold these preconceptions their attitudes change, and they become closer – much, much closer with some very spicy, sexy situations cropping up!!
Things heat up – not just between them, but with the case too and the danger to Alice increases. Ian’s determined to protect her but he can’t cover all dangers. There’s a hard choice at one point, and the whole scene changes with some devastating blows.
Alice is great, but very opinionated and set in her views. She’s willing to be open minded though once another scenario is put to her. Though she faces tragedy she also learns more about events she thought were different, and it makes her look at her past in another light. Ian too has demons from his past shaping his present actions. He skates close to the line when doing his job, too close sometimes and though in the past he’s not been worried about what happens to him, now he’s attracted to Alice he needs to toe the line more. Can he change his old habits though, or will his actions mean he faces sanctions that could mean his death.
I really enjoyed this story again, it was good meeting some of the people from book one, and I love the way the story builds on what happened then and sets up for the next book. It can be read as a stand alone, it has a proper conclusion but the background is suggested for more action later. Its priced at £2.05 and though I don’t have length info I’d guess at around 200 pages so good value and one for the keepers file.
Stars: five once again 🙂

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
