Book review: One Foot In The Grave by Jeaniene Frost

As Goodreads say;

You can run from the grave, but you can't hide . . .
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.
Being around him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won't let her get away again.
Personal Opinion:
This book, the second in the vampire paranormal romance series called Night Huntress wasn't as good as the first one. Belivie me, it was excellent but I didn't feel as captured in the end as I did in the first. To me, the first part of the book feels like a distant memory. Fun and upbeat. Then it got more intense. Jealousy can really bugg me, because it's a strong emotion it changes people and not often to the better. Jealousy Cat seems to hold tight, for her it often is there. Maybe because when Bones caught up to her again, she realized she was still in love with the drop-dead gorgeous vampire she left behind in hope to never see once more. He pissed her off, being the way he is. That I loved. But after the wedding scenes it got as I said before, intense. Fighting with her companions because they think Bones is a crazy killer, it was much on the defense in the middle. Maybe this makes no sense to you, but it's hard to write a review even those who hasn't read the first book can look at.
To get over the negative stuff; But then. The most amazing thing as I'm sure you've all heard of. Chapter 32. All children look away, I can say that and you'll understand. Bones, you amaze us with the skills you hold only in your tongue. I can still imagine the screams that made Cat unable to speak. You rock our world. As the first book, it has a wonderful tempo. Lots of action, more in this one I think. PG-15? You could say that. I recommend you read this series, you wont regret it.

Juan gave Bones the most admiring look he’d bestowed on him yet. “You talked her into going without panties all these years? Madre de Dios, now that’s impressive. I could learn a great deal from you, amigo.” 
― Juan (to Bones), One Foot in the Grave
