Preview — One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress #2)
You can run from the grave, but you can't hide . . .
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.
Well, the theme and word for the day is buttsecks.
As in: I was innocently reading One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost when the two main characters suddenly had buttsecks.
Now, I'm a shameless, wanton hussy with super magical slut powers, just like any other girl, but some thin ...more

"I know you left me because you thought you had to protect me, that I couldn't handle the obstacles before us. So you tried to get on with your life because you believed it would never work between us. But you see, I couldn't get on with my life because I knew we could work. I've been looking for you every day since you left me, Kitten, and I'm sick of being without you. You've had your shot at things, n ...more
I love this book. I love Cat and Bones. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite paranormal couples. The only reason this book isn't a 5 star read is because I had a hard time staying engaged in the plot during the first 9 chapters. Frankly, I was bored out of my mind until the author stopped dragging out Bone's reappearance into the storyline. Other than that, One Foot in the Grave is a fantastic, enthralling, and sexy as sin read.
In HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE, Cat Crawfield was slammed with many, many truths that grossly conflicted with her upbringing. She was distraught and confused, and rightfully so . . .
As understandable as it was for Cat to struggle with her new worldview, it was also frust ...more
Bones has some of the most humorous lines I’ve ever read in paranormal romance books. But I have to hand it to Cat because she had the best line in the whole book:
“You know that old saying. Once you go dead, no one's better in bed.”
I love Bones & Cat together because I know I'm in for a fun adventure. My only fault I had with this story was the beginning of the book because it lacked Bones. I found myself struggling to stay interested in what was happening with the pl ...more
WOW...just WOW! I loved, loved, loved this book! Cat and Bones are back with bite in One Foot in the Grave, and as amazing as the first book was, this one’s even better.
Cat’s kick-ass vampire slaying is ramped up much higher this go round, and we also get a nice appetizingly, mouth-wateringly luscious, juicy Bones fix that had me melting like an ice cream cone on a hot summer day...Y-U-M! There’s lots of fast paced, high-octane action, witty laugh-out-lou ...more
Well, the fact that I'm lowering my rating from 5 stars to 3 took me by surprise. I never imagined that would happen.
I can't believe I'm going to say this, but the whole book kind of bored me. Cat was on her own after leaving the love of her life "for his own good" and she annoyed me constantly, her friends weren't as funny as I remember them being, when the love of her life does return there's unnecessary angst, and then we're at t ...more
Yep, this book is that good! I still maintain that the trashcan came out of nowhere... ;)
One Foot in the Grave begins four years after book #1, Halfway to the Grave ends. Cat is working for a secret part of the government being a badass ass, killing vampires everyday, you know, the ushe... Things are pretty rocky with Bones & the story begins with us not knowing ho ...more
The plot moves smoothly, the writing is sharper and wittier than the first book, there is oodles of action, the love scenes left me shaking. Literally. The author writes a particular love scene that is very original and hotter than Hades. I've never read anything like it before!
Kudos to Jeaniene Frost for taking a chance and starting this book four years later. Most books in a sequel take place one right on top of the other, but ...more
I had tons of fun readng One Foot in the Grave because of the wit, snarkiness, and generally funny moments all over the book. This one resembled the last book in that way. I've picked out some of my favorite quotes/passages:
"Life's a bitch and then one stabs you."
Just like old times, I thought ironically. I look like a slut, and Bones is my backup while I go after murdering fang-bangers....more
4 "HOLY CHAPTER 32" STARS
“This isn’t going to be easy,” I grumbled as we headed toward the exit.
Bones shrugged. “Nothing worthwhile ever is.”
I couldn't wait to start this one! I had been told that Chapter 32 would blow my mind! And it did! I seriously want Bones so bad!
It's been four years, that right FOUR years (I was surprised myself), since Cat left Bones to become a secret agent for the government that deals with paranormal cases. By now, everyone has heard about the "Red Reaper", and ...more
Cat came across as a little naïve in this book, although she did improve as the book went on. So many people seemed to get the drop on her though, even if she did get them back eventually, that I wondered how she stayed alive on her own for so long!
The storyl ...more
Second read: April 2015:
Well, I definitely don't think this is a 5 star book anymore. My tastes and standards have changed a lot just in one year!
The first half of this book is basically what has Cat been up to in the 4 years she blew off Bones and joined a secret government group that hunts rogue vampires who kill humans. Cat is their leader and thought she was saving Bones' life by leaving him and disappearing. YAWN.
I never liked the secret military storyline. A ...more
I was really disappointed in this second book in the Night Huntress series.
The first book was wonderful. Witty dialogue, a lot of tough action and of course: Cat and Bones together (hot hot hot). We saw Cat being transformed from a shy but determined amateur to a sexy vixen vampire huntress. I loved Bones, I loved Cat and I loved them together.
Four years later, Cat is in charge of a special task force dealing with undead felons. She has a busy work life, her col ...more
However, the story had a lot of interesting details, engaging plot, and it was fast-paced enough to hold my ...more
I really really enjoyed this book but I just can't quite bring myself to award it 5 stars when you compare it to, say, Margaret Atwood's genius in The Handmaid's Tale or the deeply entwined mystery/romance/mythology of Darkfever and the rest of the Fever series. This is an easy-to-read addictive series with a heroine who is likeable, brave (without being unrealistic ...more
This book didn't make me smile. This book made me want to kick Cat in the face.
I should mention that I'm biased against Mega-Alpha Females ...more
Reread rating: 5 stars
"And there is my payment the rubies in your cheeks. Are you properly scandalized by your wicked behavior? If you were Catholic, you'd singe the ears of the priest you confessed to. Do you remember making me swear to repeat all those naughty actions again, no matter what you said this morning?"...more
Now that he brought it up, I did recall saying that. Great, betrayed by my own immorality.
"God, Bones... some of that was depraved."
"I'll take that as a complime
I was initially a bit horrified that Jeaniene Frost had chosen to kick this book off 4 years after the events at the end of the first book. I usually hate such time jumps, but in this case I think it actually worked out for the best. Cat had a chance to grow on her own and perfect her vampire slaying s ...more
The second book in the Night Huntress series is a winner. My second time reading this book, and it was just as awesome as ever. Cat and Bones are back in a big way, and this is a series not be missed. This book picks up where the first one left us without Bones, and Cat wallowing in all her self-pity, thus causing my Bones pain.
Well he is back with his “Hallo, Kitten” and it gives tingles to the spine. Give a dog a bone already, because I am would pull out s ...more
This seconds installment starts 4,5 years after the end of the first book. Cat is working with the government killing vampires and trying to move on with her life after having left Bones behind, because she believed they would never had any chance of a future together.
But destiny cross both of their paths again and between her vengeance and a new war against a powerful vampire, old feelings that never really got away are bound to return.
I liked this book even more than the fir ...more
Gah… This was just all kinds of ways good, the question here is why did I leave the delicious and uber sexy Bones sitting on my TBR shelf for so long? I mean I already knew this was going to be great, I figured Cat was going to kick some major ass and I’d heard all kinds of rumours about the infamous chapter 32 So why the wait?? I just don’t have an answer. Anyways my thanks to SheSwitches ...more
“You know that old saying. Once you go dead, no one's better in bed.”
Even though the ending of the first enraged me, I could let the sequel sit unread for long, as I had to see if the author fixed it. She did, and early, and in great ways, so thank you.
The plot for this one is more intense and layered - it's not just too many pages of training and back and forth love interest, but instead has danger coming from different directions, in the internal circle as well as the outside. I tend ...more
Four years had passed when she left Bones but she still misses him terribly. Gone is the naïve and prissy girl, she’s a ...more
