Nikki is a psychic private investigator, she is able to throw kinetic energy, and able to sense things most people cannot. Her job is to find Mr. Trevgard's daughter and bring her back. While following Monica Trevgard, Nikki gets the feeling that she is being followed and even goes into a house that she feels isn't safe. This is where her eyes are opened to the fact that there are things that go bump in the night. Zombies, vampires and crazy people, oh my!

Michael is in town to kill a bad guy that he has a history with. He is also there to protect Nikki from said bad guy. I think the main part of the book for me was the fact that I knew it would come down to this. Would Michael be able to put aside his history with the bad guy in order to save Nikki? The story was a tad bit predictable, but I did enjoy it. Since I was really intrigued by Michael's character, I was glad to see that the story was told in both Nikki and Michael's POV. Dancing with the Devil didn't go super in depth on his past so I'm hoping book two will shed more light on his character.

I've read both the Riley Jensen series as well as the Dark Angels series by Keri Arthur. So when I saw this series which I didn't really know much about on NetGalley I jumped and requested it immediately. This series is actually a re-release of her previous work. This book leans heavily towards Urban Fantasy with little to no Paranormal Romance. This could change with book two, I'm not certain if the entire series will follow suit. If you're a Keri Arthur fan, or even a Urban Fantasy fan you will probably enjoy this book.

  1. I like the idea that its more UF than PNR. I'm still a little lagged from my smug fest two weeks ago so this sounds.perfect. I know I keep on saying his but I promise! I'll read some KArthur this weekend!

    3. lol! I'm definitely enjoying book 2 more than book 1. It has more of the KArthur feel than #1 did.

  2. Oh I love her books. Haven't tried this one yet. But read all of the Riley books. Been ages since I've read any of hers so might have to grab this one up.

    1. You need to read her other series too. Dark Angel series is what it's called I think!
