The third book in the “funny, sexy, and lively” (Publishers Weekly) romance series about a paranormal dating service called Midnight Liaisons.
Marie Bellavance has known for years that she’s going to die of the same incurable disease her mother did. That’s why she never dated and doesn’t allow anyone to get close to her. But now, as an employee of the paranormal dating agency Midnight Liaisons, she has a chance: if she can find someone to turn her into a supernatural creature, she’ll be cured!
Flirty were-cougar Joshua Russell has wanted standoffish Marie for his own, but she’s been off limits as a human. When he catches her sneaking away from a vampire date gone wrong, he steps in and offers his own services. As a vampire bodyguard, he’s able to tell her which men will be the perfect ones to date. But he’s secretly got a better plan in mind: if she wants to date the supernatural, a handsome were-cougar would be the best choice of all.
Marie has just gone on her first date and discovered that finding someone to turn her isn't going to be as easy as she thought.
I arrived at the agency a short time later, plunked one Red Bull down on Ryder’s desk, and stomped back to my desk.
“Date went well?” Ryder said in a faux cheerful voice.
“He told me I wasn’t his type,” I said between gritted teeth. “Too much glasses and eyebrows. Not enough badonkadonk.”
“Reaaaallly.” She popped open the Red Bull and added some to her newest mug of coffee. “You should note on his file that he’s an ass man.”
I snorted. “An ass man who’s an asshole.”
“Har har, very funny. So are you done with this now?” she asked hopefully.
“No,” I said firmly. “Just because the first one was a pig doesn’t mean they all are.”
“Marie, sweetie, if they could catch a woman on their own, they wouldn’t need the agency, would they? All you’re going to find are pigs.”
But I refused to give up. I pulled open the database and immediately began to search for the next victim.
I would find someone to turn me. I would.
It's been awhile since I read anything in this series. I remember that it was a fun series based around a Dating Service for Supernaturals. I didn't have a lot of expectations going in other than a quick fun read. And I wasn't disappointed; sometimes you just need some brain candy. I did wish that the character had actually gotten checked out instead of self diagnosing her fatal disease. Personally, I think she stressed herself into a self-fulfilling prophesy, but other than that it wasn't a real deep thought provoking read. This didn't turn out to be something that I would reread, but for a couple of hours of light hearted entertainment, it fit the bill. I will continue with the series, and gave this book 3 stars.
