Beast Coast by J.C. McKenzie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Right after finishing the first book, I couldn't wait to read the second one. Beast Coast starts up right after the ending of book one. This is not a standalone. The series must be read in order to enjoy it fully. Andy thought she could be free from the Master Vampire, Lucien. Caught on a slight technicality, Andy is still stuck under Lucien's thumb. Not only does she still have Wick the werewolf sniffing after her, Tristian the wereleopard alpha wants a lick.
This tug of war between the two sexy men is good for a woman's ego but rough on her heart. With her animal spirits putting in their two cents, it can drive a woman crazy. The vampires are still deadly and sexually deviant. Lucien's human servant is disturbing but for those who enjoy dark erotica, it is hard to say no to his brand of debauchery and rough body play. Basically the relationships in this book are "complicated". It is hard to choose just one male. Andy, forget monogamy and go for poly! This book is more than just hawt erotic tension. The plot is attention grabbing.
Andy is learning more about her own powers. She also has two jobs that may have a conflict of interest. Andy needs to balance her job's duty and what Lucien demands of her. Can she do it? It is tough. The conflict is well done and the suspense part keeps my attention. The conclusion comes all too quick. It leaves a reader wanting to read the next book. Recommended to paranormal readers who enjoy sexual tension, action and woman surrounded by too many suitors.
