They're here, and they're real. . .werewolves, vampires, mages, and other creatures of the night. For New York P.I. Shiarra Waynest, taking care of Others business started out as a way to stay solvent. But now business is getting very, very complicated. . .

Shiarra's relationship with sexy werewolf Chaz may be somewhat unconventional. Still, after a few bumps, Shia is finally ready to get serious. That means meeting family—or in this case, bringing Chaz's entire werewolf pack along for a rollicking full-moon weekend in the Catskills.

Soon after they arrive, threatening notes appear, warning Chaz to go home. Then their cabin is ransacked. Shia starts digging to find out whether it's the work of upstart teenaged werewolves or something more sinister. Yet as rumors about her vampire connections arouse the pack's hostility, Shia has to contend with other dangers. Not just from an adversary about to make his fatal intentions known, but from a threat that's even closer than she knows. .

My Review

Omg. Are you freaking kidding me? Seriously. This series just keeps getting better and better. This review will probably be shorter than what you usually get from me because I don’t want to give anything away. This has been my favorite book of hers so far.

Shia has agreed to go with Chaz to spend the weekend with him and his pack during the full moon. She is seriously considering signing a contract and taking their relationship to the next level. What is supposed to be a weekend full of relaxation and fun turns out to be anything but. Now Shia has some crazy stuff going that can change her entire life and the lives of those she cares about. I guess that’s not really anything new though with her lol.

So this book left me wanting to kick some serious butt. Luckily, for Jess Haines, for some reason, I never blame the author for things that the characters do. I’ll blame the author for cliffhangers or bad writing, but never for what the characters do. I am not sure why I’m like that, but whatever. Some of the characters in Decieved are total dicks. I want to go into the story, junk punch them, and leave. I was so pissed.

We are introduced to a few new characters. Some of them need to be bitch slapped, but I really liked a few of the others. I actually thought they were pretty hilarious and I really hope they make another appearance in the series. All I know is that I hope the Sunstriker pack gets what’s coming to them, and soon.

Alec Royce is not involved much in this book, but does make an appearance, as does a few of his vampire friends. This is not the usual trouble that Shia gets herself into. This is more of a personal story than her usual getting the whole world chasing her kind of story. This is not a book you want to miss if you are at all into Shia’s story. I can’t wait to see where she goes from here and who’s ass she kicks along the way!

    I have yet to read this series. I have read some reviews where people really didn’t like this series as it went along so I guess that put me off of the books. I shall have to reconsider.

    Thanks for the great review!
