Favorite Quote: “This wasn’t quite what I had in mind when you said you wanted to go hunting. Stalking the elusive cupcake isn’t a typical sentry job. “
Secret McQueen has had an eventful year. She has gone from being an unattached low level bounty hunter to a high ranking vampire Tribunal leader with not one but two boyfriends and the possibility for more. Because of her new status, Secret has been taken off of active duty so when her...more

The full-length books in this series have been on my wishlist for some time now and after finishing Secret Santa I remember why! I read Sierra Dean’s other novella, The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters, a few months back and loved it. This second short story is equally as awesome (and festive!). I’m still reeling from how much content was skillfully crammed into so few pages. It honestly felt like a full-length book. I don’t know how Sierra does it!
I liked how the Christm...more
While a lot has changed for Secret, like having a seat on the vampire Tribunal, some things never change. There are missing and murdered kids.

How many guys can one woman handle anyway?! Lucky bitch or what? Can't wait to find out!

Having said this, I'm sure reading the first two installments would set the world and its weird c...more
I especially liked the conversation with Holden! *_*
Some cute time between her and Des (love ya Des!). Some tension between her and Holden.
And of course the hunt for a really creepy serial killer who leaves bodyparts as a gift. Just your typical paranormal NY xmas.
Ever since she was a young girl she has loved the idea of...more
