Book Description:

 

Bound by blood. Bound by loyalty. Bound by love.

 

Florian has it all: excellent fashion sense, a kickass job with his best friend, and a hard-won place among Silverton’s werewolves. When a pack of females pads into their territory, Flo’s alpha dispatches him to handle a merger. Total cakewalk. Except Keely, their alpha, has no intention of submitting her wolves to Flo’s larger pack. Worse, a single glance from her baby blues sends his eloquence on vacation and his heartbeat into overdrive. His flirtations seem welcome too, but there’s a snag. She doesn’t know he’s a vampire.

 

While Flo struggles with his conflicts—obey his alpha, or win over Keely—his estranged sire blasts into town with a catalog of radical ideas. And hanging out with unsophisticated werewolves didn’t make the list.

 

With violence in the air and all sides testing his loyalties, Florian must bite back, even if showing his fangs costs him the girl.

Excerpt (romance)

 

Keely led me around the side of the camp to an area where ropes, wooden blocks, and tires lay strewn in the grass. Despite her heels sinking into the uneven ground, she kept her poise.

 

“We want to set up a few swings.” She pointed at the grassy surface.

 

I took a quick count of the materials. “There’s enough here for two swings, a seesaw and maybe a fort.”

 

“A fort?” She gave a laugh, light and carefree.

 

I stood taller. “You have boys here, right? You gotta have a fort.”

 

“If you say so. Come on then.” She kicked off her shoes and strode barefoot toward a wooden beam.

 

“We need a saw.”

 

She gestured to my right. “Will that do?”

 

“Yes.” I picked it up. “Come on, give me a hand.”

 

Together, we cut the ends of four sturdy posts at roughly twenty-degree angles. Sawing wasn’t a hobby of mine, but it seemed appropriately manly. The kind of work a male werewolf might perform.

 

“Have you done this before?” She used her weight to hold down the long end, exposing more cleavage than a man holding dangerous tools should see.

 

“No. But I’ve read about it.” I placed the saw and moved it back and forth until the corner dropped into the grass. “It didn’t seem difficult.”

 

“You read about building a swing set?” She exchanged one board for another, which got the same treatment. “That must have been a riveting read. You should join us for book club and tell us about it.”

 

I chuckled. “My memory has a thing for remembering weird information. Like how to build the frame, but not where I read it. Sorry. Am I still invited?”

 

“Sure. We’ll be discussing the complexities and metaphors of Little Women. You can bring the snacks.”

 

“There is no book club, is there?”

 

She straightened and ran the back of her hand over her glistening forehead. “No. Maybe next month.”

review

 I give this book 5 hearts
I have fallen in love with this series!
Ivy is smart, sassy and kick ass.
Yes she’s a PI that seems to attract trouble, and yes her best friend is a vampire and her neighbor is a werewolf and sure her love life is all over the place since a family friend has informed her that she’s not even human, but things can always get worse. Which they do when a case ends with dead bodies, her best friend trying to accidentally kill her and demons out to kidnap her.
This is a really fun, fast paced but not rushed story with romance, action and very well written characters. I fell in love with Ivy. Florian, and Parker even Waylon.
I can’t resist a well written Urban fantasy/ para romance with no cliffhanger and a HEA 🙂

Book 2 Bound
I give this book 5 hearts
This is the second book In the series and won’t be nearly as good if you haven’t read the first book guarded, so please go do so it rocks!
So this is Florian’s story and it’s fantastic. Florian is the vampire best friend and work partner of Ivy the mixed heritage demon from Guarded and yes she’s in this one too.
 He doesn’t seem to fit anywhere the werewolf pack is tense with the arrival of a pack of females that won’t join them. There are also rogues on the loose, and Florian’s sire is back. Nothing is going as planned and It’s a lot to handle. Everything goes haywire when he is sent to talk to the female were pack, who’s sexy alpha Keely makes him dream of a future that can’t possibly occur or can it?
       Just like in Guarded Ivy and Florian must save the world from the bad guys and they are hitting close to home.
 I absolutely loved Getting to read from his POV his dark humor and comments had me smiling. Hot and sexy, with wit and kick ass fight scenes fall in love with Florian he’s dark but good, and certainly knows how to show a certain girl a very good time.
