For everyone thinking Big Bad Bite is an urban fantasy just because Jenna is on a SWAT team, I'm going to save you time and possible disappointment, it's not. The main focus of the story is Jenna and Adam's relationship, with the SWAT team and the extremist shifters as an amazing side story.
Jenna O'Conner has lived by one mantra all her life. Stay Hidden. Stay Alive. Her mother and uncles have kept Jenna hidden from the dangerous Other community. Jenna is the child of two different Other species that should not have been able to breed together. In the Others eyes, Jenna should not exist and she's been told they're more than happy to fix that little problem. In the eyes of her father's side of the family Jenna is an abomination, she's simply not good enough for her mother's side. So Jenna plays human, hiding who and what she really is, hoping that it will keep her safe.
After living such a sheltered life, Jenna's family finally trusts her to be able to keep her secret hidden on her own and allows Jenna to move to a nearby city so she can take a job with the Wilmington Police Department's SWAT team. Jenna thinks the hardest part of her new life will be that, at the age of twenty-three, she's the youngest member of the SWAT team. She was so wrong. Jeanna's world significantly changes her first day on the job. Her new partner is a demon. As if that was not bad enough, during an arrest Jenna captures the attention of the very sexy Alpha of North Carolina, Adam McPhee. To say that he finds her intriguing would be the understatement of the year. Adam knows Jenna is not a werewolf, like himself, but she's definitely something Other. He's determined to see her again and find out exactly what she is, but mostly Adam wants to claim Jenna for himself.
While the Other community consists of the usual suspects; demons, shifters, witches & vampires, their origins are very unique. I love that! It's such a small detail and is usually overlooked, but adds so much to the story. There are, of course, angels and fallen angels. However, there are two different types of demons, Hell-bound demons and earth-born demons. Hell-bound demons are evil monsters that cannot live on the earth's surface. When they escape from Hell they have twenty-four to seventy-two hours to cause outbreaks, murder and mayhem; basically ruining or destroying everything they come into contact with, before they disintegrate. Unfortunately, there are some Hell-bound demons that enjoy raping humans and/or other Others.
Earth-born demons are the result of Hell-bound demons raping humans. The child will not look like their demonic sperm donors. Everything about their physical traits will essentially be human, even a human soul, but they do get a genetic boost from the demon DNA. The earth-bound demons mental capabilities will be off the charts, so their powers come from the brain; e.g., telekinesis, telepathy, pyrokinesis, levitation, teleportation, etc. While the sperm donors are evil personified, due to their human souls, earth-born demons, like humans, have the capacity to choose good or evil.
Witches are the product of fallen angels and humans. Despite their paternal parentage, a witch is also born with a human soul. Like an earth-born demon, a witch is also given the choice between good or evil. Due to their father's DNA, witches are gifted with the ability to use magic.
Vampires are the result of Hell-bound demons raping witches. Th

I keep reading these reviews saying that the book is 700 pages but my copy is only 258 pages so I guess they edited out the parts people are saying were not necessary? Maybe they will also fix my only problem with the book...it's he LAY down beside me not he lied down beside me! It is never lied and always lay! Lied was used so many times in this book it was distracting! Other than that it was a good book except I hate when they don't solve the conflict in the story.Was this review helpful?

Jessie Lane is a new author for me .I got this book because it sounded very interesting . When i started reading i found out it was written in first person which i hate.i continued to read since i had also gotten the next book in series. I skipped a lot in the book but continued to read since it was a really good story line. Jessie Lane put a new spin on the paranormal .i did find myself getting more into the book and ended up enjoying it. Just to let you know the second book is not in first person and i am really liking that so far. i will look for more books from this author. if you like paranormal books don't pass up this series.Was this review helpful?

A hot, funny paranormal with some issues.
The book drew me in right away and kept me there throughout. The story of a big, bad alpha and the small but fierce hybrid had me turning pages to see what happened next. I rated it with three stars because 1, the constant change from present to past tense in the first half of the book kept throwing me off my reading groove; 2, the occasional speilling grammar errors; and 3) the sudden, don't-see-it-coming hanging ending. It was good enough, though, that I probaby will buy the 2nd book to see what happens.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
