Overview



A cop who tosses the rulebooks to get his way…

Vampire Ian McCready doesn’t care for Alice Capshaw’s opinions about his version of justice. Her humanity makes her off-limits, but that does nothing to lessen his overwhelming desire for her. To Alice, Ian is just another bad cop as detestable as the one who destroyed her family. She’s attracted to him, yes, but he threatened his way into her agency’s murder case and has too many secrets.

When a new case resurrects ghosts Ian believed long dead and buried, his law-bending ways might result in his execution. The second Alice becomes a target, his cold heart flares into blinding existence. But following the law for her sake may end with devastating results.

    I read the first book of this series and fell in love with the characters. This is the second book of the series and is about vampire Ian and human Alice. Both characters were introduced in the first book.




    This book started a little slow, but I was glad I stuck with it. Also, I was a little lost at the beginning as I had to re-orient to the vampire world and terminology of this series. I had to remember a lot of what had been revealed in the previous book and I think a new reader might become discouraged. A little more time reorienting to the world in which this series takes place would be beneficial.




    Nothwithstanding the reorientation, it was a great story and mystery. I found myself baffled as to who is committing the murders. Ms McCallister did a great job with misdirection in the characters to keep the reader pondering. Alice as a little flaky at the beginning but her character really grew during the book. Ian was a solid character from the beginning, but his self-examination gave his character depth beyond sexy and smart.




    McCallister continues the story of Slavers and really pulls the reader into that mystery as well. More is also revealed of the Immortalis and Legion vs Dominus castes which made me understand them better. Other characters I want to learn more about are Ezra, Ptolomy, and Declan.

    Alice doesn't like many cops. That would be fine but she has to work along side of them so it makes it hard. What makes it even harder is a vampire cop named Ian. She doesn't like the way he bends rules and does as he pleases but he sure does make her have all kinds of fantasies. Ian does his job anyway he can to get results done. Knowing he shouldn't he begins to want her. They have to work together to bring the vampire killer to justice. Mistrust may tear them apart before they even have a chance to see if it will work. The case is getting more dangerous and they will have to figure things out quickly.




    Alice has has a bad experience with cops and it shows. She is the type who likes to follow the rules and stick to them. She has a very fiery personality and doesn't back down. I liked her as she has lots of spunk plus she gets to work with Ian. Ian is the yummy vampire I want for my own. He is tough, sexy and I love his wit. He at times is like a big flirt the next minute all business. I love him!




    If your looking for the next great vampire romance book well here it is. I loved everything about this book from the beginning to the end. I have to say I had the killer pegged wrong as who it was for a while and the author does a great job with that. There is lots going on and you have to keep reading to see what will happen next. Alice and Ian belong together even if they don't even know it yet or want to admit it. Both are stubborn and hard headed and that gets in the way sometimes but they work really well in the bedroom. They seem to bring out the best in each other without trying to. Alice has some tragedy and Ian is willing to be right there for her if he can. He always ask about her and that just made him crawl into my heart that much more. Alice has o learn not everything is as it seems and she really grows from that. Ian has to deal with some self doubt and it makes him greater for it to see he realizes he could make mistakes. If you looking for a hot read with a wonderful plot and amazing characters pick this up. It's the second book in the series but can be read as a stand alone.

    I am still new to the paranormal romance genre, but I truly enjoyed this book.  The quick banter between Ian (Killian is his full name which I love) and Alice.  Ian was so fun, all that sarcasm and his Irish accent.  And Alice was such a strong independent female.  Loved her shooting scene.  




    The ending was very sweet and emotional.  Loved the chemistry between the two.




    The camaraderie between the male vampires was hilarious.  I loved their interaction.  Would love to see a story for Declan and Ezra. I know theirs would be good.




    I was given this story in exchange for an honest review.

    This is the second book in the Immortalis series and I really enjoyed it. I did not read the first book yet, but I was able to read this without feeling lost in the story. The interaction between the characters was so great that it kept me reading to see what would happen next. 

    Alice has a good reason not to like cops, as far as she is concerned most of them are dirty. She’s dealt with Ian before, and even though he’s a vampire cop, she thinks that he’s just like all the rest of them. He’s forced his way into the murder case that her agency is working on, and thinks that he can investigate any way that he wants. He may be one sexy vampire, but she is not going to accept that he does not follow the rules. 

    Ian believes in fighting for justice, so he really doesn’t like Alice’s accusations about how he gets it. He knows they have nothing in common but can’t help the desire that he feels for her. He’s falling for her even though she’s a human and he shouldn’t touch her, but Ian usually does whatever it takes to get what he wants. 

    The recent murders are very familiar to Ian, but he knows they cannot be the same because he solved that old case a very long time ago. Something has to be different about the new murders, but if he doesn’t figure out what it is it will be the end of him when the secrets of the past are revealed. 

    Alice and Ian finally act on their shared desires for one another. She wants him to stop keeping secrets from her about the case and to follow the rules. When Alice becomes the next target, he realizes just how important she has become to him. Will he grant her wish and follow the rules to save her? Or will he break them as long as it will help him find her before it’s too late? 

    I received an e-ARC of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    *i received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
    This is the first book I've read b this author and I will now go looking for more. While not a full length novel this was well written and the characters well fleshed out.
    Alice winds up in charge of a murder investigation where young just turned vamp's are being murdered. She's stressed out by a long term condition her brother is hospiltilised for. Not only that but she has to turn to a dreaded cop in Ian (a vampire) to help in the investigation.
    Can Ian and Alice put aside their past and work together?
    There's tension, dectective work, sadness and joy all in one here.

    An interesting and complex story.

    Reviewed by Gemini
    for Read Your Writes Book Reviews

    Bad Cop is an interesting and complex story about Alice Capshaw and Killian “Ian” McCready. Alice Capshaw is the temporary Vice Director of the Vampire Liaison Office which handles the “legal issues, regulations, and enforcement regarding vampire society, the Immortalis.” Killian McCready is a vampire that works for the Legion which is the law enforcement arm of vampire society. He tracks vampires that have committed crimes and he is very good at his job.

    Alice and Ian’s worlds collide when they end up working together to solve a string of murders that involve newly turned vampires. Their attraction to each other is immediate and it plays a crucial role in the murder investigation. Their expected love story is typical but everything else about the book isn’t. I had issue with the caste system that involves the vampires. They had a heirarchy that resembles society’s own upper, middle, and lower class. There was so much politics involved that I felt that it took away from the romantic elements of the story. Since the book was part of a series, I may have had a different perspective if I had read the previous book.

    To be fair, I did like the fact that although this was a paranormal romance, the relationship between Alice and Ian was rather normal. Ian was over 600 years-old, wealthy, and took his job very seriously. Alice was barely getting by before she took over as Vice Director but she was no damsel in distress. She doesn’t like cops due to something that happened to her brother but she can’t ignore her attraction to Ian. They go through the usual roller coaster ride before they finally realize that they belong together. All in all it’s a fun ride minus the politics. I would recommend this book.

    This was a great read with great characters! Alice Capshaw is human and has been temporarily placed in charge of the Vampire Liaison Office (VLO). Because of events in her past she believes in working within the confines of the system to get the job done – no matter the circumstances.

    Killian (Ian) McCready is a vampire and works for the Legion Trackers, the covert organization tasked with enforcing law and eliminating rogues in the Vampire world. He is not averse to bending a few rules to administer justice, especially when those who are guilty have been set free
    “Common sense and the greater good was the entire reason for his covert team’s existence. If they followed the letter of the law, the world might come to an end.”

    Tasked with finding out who is murdering newly changed vampires, Alice and Ian must work together to solve the crime, even though their methods cause friction between them. Despite the powerful attraction Alice & Ian feel towards one another, Ian’s disregard for the law comes continues to come between them.
    "You don’t care one bit about twisting arms and forcing your will, do you?”
    “Sometimes that’s the only way to get things done.”

    As the hunt for the killer heats up and things in Alice’s personal life take a tragic turn, Alice begins to question the circumstances that have led her to take such a hard line on always playing by the rules. Will both Alice and Ian be able to see past their differences and find a future together?

    This is book #2 in the Immortalis series and I don’t think I missed out on much by not reading book #1, Bad Mouth, first. Both Alice and Ian were great characters who bantered back and forth with the right mix of humor and heat. Ian is totally on board with having a relationship with Alice right from the beginning, but she holds him at arm’s length due to their differences. The backstory to Alice’s prejudices and the suspense of the current murder investigation keep you turning pages.

    The supporting cast of characters, including Ian’s Tracker friends and Alice’s friends Piper and Val, were colorful and had me laughing with their banter. I can’t wait to see where Angela McCallister takes the series from here with all these great characters to write about! The vampire lore is also different from other stories, which was refreshing.

    I would definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for a great PNR story with lots of heat, a bit of humor, and some mystery. A great read!

    I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
