Former Boston Homicide Detective and current Private Investigator, Kat Munroe is no ordinary human. She is a huntress with special abilities that give her an edge in her work, but that’s something she doesn’t share in case it gets her a one-way ticket to the loony bin. When Max and Brett Jericho hire her to find Viktor Kalsiak, suspected of stealing millions of dollars worth of uncut diamonds, she’s skeptical, but intrigued. Needing to bring more income into her fledging PI business, she agrees to take the case. However, her instincts are telling her that these men and this case are not what they seem and her instincts have never failed her.
This is an excellent short sci-fi suspense story that has a paranormal feel to it. Kat has supernatural abilities that run in her family and the Jericho boys are not entirely human either. And they are hot, hot, hot. The suspense is all about Viktor and the erotica is all about Kat and her hottie employers getting some ménage action. The sci-fi is covered by time travel and future Earth. So, this story has a bit of everything. The bad guy isn’t very well-developed and it’s hard to get a sense of him other than he’s not a good guy. Kat and the Jerichos have better developed personalities and they are very likeable. The POV switches between Max and Kat, so I got a good overall sense of what was going down. It’s well-written, though a tad short, but don’t let that stop you from reading it. All-in-all a wonderful and entertaining read.

Every book has a predictability value you expect. Good guys will
Every book has a predictability value you expect. Good guys will beat the bad guys and win the girl in the story. It’s how each author presences those predictabilities that make the story. Is there a new idea, new twist that will make this book interesting and stand out amongst the rest. I think author Ali Atwood has done it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Huntress for Hire had me from the very beginning. I went into this book thinking I’m reading a paranormal although, the further I got in the more I was feeling this was a Sci-Fi. By the end, I was straddling the fence between what genre I was reading and that in itself is a good thing. This meant the predictability went out the window. There are definitely a few twists I did not expect that kept me guessing until the end. The main characters of Kat, Max and Brett were a great combination of tough and romantic. The sex between them was sizzling and erotic (warning to the reader, there is M/F/M action!) without dominating the story. Which in my opinion, too much sex can ruin a good action story.
So what we have here folks is a great story, which plenty of action and intrigue with just enough sex to keep this reviewer happy. Is this worth the read? Most certainly and I plan on reading the Huntress Chronicles series. Excellent work Ms Atwood!
BTW…Did I mention I LOVE the cover!

This book is great,it is the first book in a series. I read it in one sitting because I couldn't wait to see what happens next. I love Kat,Max, and Brett's story. I really enjoyed reading about Kat's powers and her family history and how Max and Brett helped her. This book has it all mystery, steamy romance, and paranormal. This book keeps your attention from the first page. There are some steamy sex scenes between Kat, Max, and Brett in this book but they are tastefully written.I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

This book is amazing. It had it all: mystery, shifters, future cops, action adventure, and steamy romance. I was immediately drawn into the world Ms. Atwood created. The story is about a retired cop turned PI who has special abilities that she keeps hidden. She is hired by a drop dead sexy man, Max, who has a few tricks up his sleeve as well. Then comes along his brother who is just like Max, torn between trying to keep a professional working relationship and what her body is craving, the two brothers are just too good to pass up.
As the plot unfolds the hunted is a supposedly jewel thief from the future, but he has his sights set on more than jewels this go around. Her bestie, Lora, is a hoot and I was a little sad that she did not have more of a voice in the book. The banter between the two friends is classic, in the beginning of the book. The book does have some adult language and steamy scenes between Max, Brett, and Kat. I think they were tastefully written and just the right amount of balance.
I immediately started book 2. This is a great series, and I can’t wait to read all the adventures ahead. This book was given to me for an honest review.

Hot, Action Packed Read
Hot, Action Packed Read I was provided with a copy of this book by the author for an honest review.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
OK I think I’ve calmed down enough to write this review now………… I think………. Yep ready to go.
Kat is an ex-cop turned PI with supernatural abilities, who’s trying to get her PI business off the ground and also has a serial killer from the future after her.
Who better than to help her than 2 super-cops from the future, Max and Brett.
This book is certainly a page turner and full of action. I love all the interaction between the characters in the book.
The adult scenes are enough to have you running for a cold shower and are not over done
The book nicely introduces the other characters in the series and links them to this book without confusing you.
The book is in no means predictable and has the eyebrows rising in one or two place because you just didn’t see it coming!
The characters are well developed and easy to connect with. Kat is a bad ass girl who doesn’t really fear tough situations but is emotionally vulnerable. The vulnerability keeps her grounded and real. Max & Brett are 2 super-sexy brothers who both have eyes for Kat and even though they are there for a job they can’t resist the bad ass sexy chick.

Wow. Just wow. This book was really quite interesting. I love ho
Wow. Just wow. This book was really quite interesting. I love how Atwood seamlessly combined many genres of literature into a single novella. Although listed as an erotic novel (which it definitely is), it also has a very strong paranormal suspense component to it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This novella was very well written. Atwood lays out her story clearly, progressing from one point to the next. And yes, it does have a definite storyline. The suspense that she builds throughout is very compelling. The descriptions and narrative that she employs were also very compelling. Many of the scenes in this novella were vividly realistic.
The characters in this novel were all very unique. Atwood developed them all extremely well considering the shortened page count of a novella, while still leaving more to be discovered in a sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed finding out the family histories of the main characters. Knowing where they came from helped explain who they were today. I also appreciated that the characters were not simply developed emotionally and personality wise, but also physically. You can clearly picture what each and every one of the main characters looks, sounds, and feels like.
This was a very intriguing, very compelling read. I couldn’t put it down at all. I’d love to read many more adventures with these characters.

I really enjoyed this book. I started this book this morning and I found myself turning page after page dying to know what would happen next. The whole concept of the book kept me intrigued. I found the world that Ali created was exciting where anything was possible. I will most definitely be looking into reading more books by Ali Atwood. I will also have to look into the next book in the series Huntress at Large.
