Tempting Evil


Riley Jenson Guardian #3


Keri Arthur


Urban Fantasy


She’s a woman, a werewolf, and a vampire, and she’s having the time of her life!
In a world of sorcery and seduction, the nights bring out the beautiful, the damned, and the desired. Here, Riley Jenson is on her own—half werewolf, half vampire, working for an organization created to police the supernatural races. Trusting her superiors and lovers barely more than she trusts her worst enemies, Riley plays by her own set of rules. Her latest mission: to enter the heavily guarded pleasure palace of a criminal named Deshon Starr—a madman-scientist who’s been messing around in the gene pool for decades.
With two sexy men—a cool, seductive vampire and an irresistibly hot wolf—vying for her attention, Riley must keep focused. Because saving the world from Deshon Starr will mean saving herself—from the trap that’s closing in around her…

Why do I always forget this is such a kickass series???!!!
It takes me forever to start the next instalment and then I pretty much devour it. Afterwards, I’m like, must read the next book sooner aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I forget.
Granted, there are a lot of good books out there but omg! If you like all things supernatural with a kickass heroine, you really need to read this series! Oh and while there is a lot of sex in this instalment, it’s not very graphic, so go ahead and pick it up!

While I really liked the book, there were some things that disappointed me a bit. One thing was the pacing: things went from a normal pace to a rollercoaster, the end. It just felt so sudden, without some much-needed answers. But hey, now we have another very very evil bad guy on the loose gunning for Riley. Hope he will bring more to the table.
Another were the characters we met, Berna and Nerida. I’m still trying to find out how they fit in the whole picture and what added value they brought. Oh, and what’s with being nude, the whole time?
And last, Riley’s growing abilities, she seems to master them pretty quickly even though they are new. How could Quinn or Jack not pick up on those, being the better psychics? It just left a lot of question marks in my head.

Final Thoughts:

But all in all, it really was another great book, honestly! Quinn and Riley are so good together, I have high hopes for them, though that would also mean that her wish for a family won’t come true 🙁 … but still, team Quinn!
