Rating: 3.5 stars
Series: Boundary Magic #2
Lex continued to work for the vampires to protect her niece. Things weren’t going well for the vampires, and a mysterious creature was killing people. Lex had to deal with all of it, which gave her the chance to learn more about the Old World.
This was a good continuation of the series, but I just don’t love it. The romance is okay. I’m very happy it has not turned into a love triangle yet. I definitely wouldn’t mind it if things with Lex and Quinn were a little steamier. I obviously read too much romance these days because when a sex scene is glossed over I feel cheated.
In both books in the series, people go after Lex’s niece although she is under the protection of the vampires. If this keeps happening it doesn’t make sense for Lex to continue working for them if they can’t hold up their end of the bargain. Keeping Charlie’s dad in the dark isn’t a feasible solution if they want to keep her safe either.
The bad guy wasn’t someone I suspected, but it wasn’t a character I knew enough about to be shocked by their actions. It’s more entertaining when bad guys are deceptive and play a larger role in the story.
I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
