134) Try Me by Parker Blue
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.
My Thoughts :
Try Me is the second part in the Demon Underground series and is as every bit good as the debut, Bite Me. Actually Try Me is even better than Bite Me because it grows up a little. Despite the fact that I am still unsure if this is supposed to be a Young Adult series or not, the main character definitely starts acting a little more like an adult.
Dan and the Special Crimes Unit is not so prominent but instead we get a good look at the Demon Underground and a new, more subtle love interest for Val. I liked the changes and the developments in the overall story. I liked seeing more demons and less police especially Dan who was not the right choice for Val.
I am really excited to see where this series will go. A succubus is a sexual supernatural and until now Val has managed to 'keep it in her pants' so to say...but what will happen in book three? After what Val discovers in this installment it will be interesting to see what she decides or if she even does decide.
This is a series I am really enjoying. I can't wait to read the third part, Fang Me, and can only recommend trying this great succubus series. Demon dogs, vampires and much more await you in this action packed read.
