The last thing that Mila ever expected was for The Bloody Doctor to escape prison after nearly two decades of incarceration. But Detective T-Bone, a tall wall of muscular man cake, drops the bo

Well, the idea is good -- a bat and a hairy coo shifter working together to catch a prolific serial killer who escape from prison; a serial killer who happens to be the mother of the bat shifter.

I liked that part. Mila is determined to make amends for what her mother has done to numerous victims. T-Bone, is in charge to catch Mila's mother, but he develops a protective stance towards Mila after understand who she is.

I am NOT a fan of the timeline though. It's too fast and I want my romance to h

BAT AND THE BONE is the fourth book in the multi-author FUC Academy series. Each is a stand-alone, paranormal, romantic suspense story set in the FUC world created by Eve Langlais. You do not need to have read any of those books to start this series – I haven’t, though I wish now that I had.

This is a paranormal, romantic, comedy with elements of psychology thriller since Mila’s mother is a notorious serial murderer who has escaped prison.

I love these characters! Mila is a vampire bat and Agent T

This book is what an episode of Bones would be like if it was paranormal and the characters were shifters. Mila is a bat shifter and forensic anthropologist working for FUC. She's also the daughter of a serial killer. T-Bone is a Highland cattle shifter and detective for the RCMP and liaison to FUC and seeks Mila's help when her mother escapes prison. Using her knowledge and insights to her mother, these two race to capture her mother before she starts killing again. The story is fast-paced, fun ...more

Calming the storm
Such a fun and quirky read. I completely forgot I was already reading a book and dived right into this story after I read the blurb. I love the way the author took some of my favorite aspects of crime TV and put them together in this catchy little book. The characters are well developed and I connected with them right away, especially the balance they brought to each other. I really enjoyed the action and intrigue that the author was able to bring to the story. She kept me on th

Mila is a forensic pathologist who works for FUC, the Furry United Coalition. When the Bloody Doctor, a notorious serial killer, escapes from prison it’s perfectly logical for T-Bone, the detective in charge, to partner with the leading expert, Mila. What he doesn’t know is that the vampire bat shifter is the killer’s daughter who has dedicated her life to making up for her mother’s crimes. Together they make a great team and T-Bone quickly learns to trust, and then protect, Mila. I received an ...more

This was a very well-written, well-developed book. I enjoyed the main character a lot and the plot. I will say that at moments I did grow bored, but that boredom always quickly passed. I would read this book again and still enjoy it as much as the first go around and plan to look for more by this author.

Recommends it for: Action/ romance fans, psychological thriller fans
Recommended to Molly by: Renee George, Booksprout
A very rare combination, Mila’s mother is a world renowned hematologist, vampire bat and serial killer. A heavy weight for any daughter to bear.

Intense psychological thriller and action packed romance. Somehow, the wry and ironic humor works well as a dark stress release.

The emotional connections between the primary characters are touching and more than a little confounding

Great read!

This is the 1st book I've read written by Alexa Gregory; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Creepy but cute

The storyline is gross and creepy but it's well balance with humor and romance.
It's a short story that's easy to read but doesn't skimp on details.
Perfect addition to series
