Try Me by Parker Blue Review

From Goodreads: This part-demon teen vampire fighter and her faithful terrier hellhound are once again patrolling the dark city streets of San Antonio, Texas. Val's hunky human partner, Detective Dan Sullivan, is giving her the cold shoulder since she beheaded his vampire ex-fiancée. Vamp leader Alejandro is struggling to keep the peace between vamps, demons and humans. The mucho powerful Encyclopedia Magicka has been stolen, someone in the Demon Underground is poisoning vamps, and Val's inner lust demon, Lola, is getting very restless since Val's now partnered with sexy Shade, the shadow demon with the blond good looks of an angel.

The second book in Parker Blue's Demon Underground urban fantasy series plunges readers deeper into a heady world of passion, friendship, intrigue and mystery.
Parker Blue lives in the wilds of Colorado with her own faithful hellhound, and she's hard at work on the next Val Shapiro book in the Demon Underground series.

Rating: 5/5

Plot: 5/5

Characters: 5/5

Ending: 5/5

I'm so thankful to the publishers for sending me a copy of this book because I absolutely loved the first book, Bite Me! Fang and Val are amazing characters and I was so happy I could read more of them. This book is a little different than the first book because of the character dynamics. Val is now involved with Shade instead of Dan and most of the book isn't Dan and Val running around San Antonio tracking down rogue vamps. The beginning, middle, and end was, as always, very interesting, funny, sweet, and attention-grabbing. The plot is so new but also so simple, easy to understand, and not predictable. Val is one of my favorite heroines in fiction and I wish this series got more attention.

  2. I hadn't heard anything about this book so I'll be wanting to read it now. It sounds like a good book. I'll have to find the first one in the series.
