Seven years ago, Addison Fitzpatrick found herself in a bit of a bind. In true Addison-fashion, she'd angered a drug dealer; she may have “forgotten” to pay him. Just when it was time to pay the piper, she was offered a way out by an unlikely being. Cannon Blackwood, master of vampires, made her an offer she couldn't refuse. Now, Addison owes Cannon three favors.
Seven years after that fateful meeting, just as Addison’s life is getting back on track, Cannon calls in one of the favors she owes him. There is a new drug that threatens the very existence of the vampire race and Cannon needs Addison, along with his brother Lachlan, who happens to be a professional thief, to steal it and destroy any evidence of it.
Not only is the future of the vampires on the line, but with both Cannon and Lachlan vying for her attention, her heart is as well. Addison has difficult choices to make and dangerous favors to repay if she wants to see the light of another day.

My first experience with this author & boy was it eventful! Not my usually type of read, & I wasn't sure exactly what to expect as I'd read through many varying reviews. My personal opinion is this title is spot on! Sure it is a bit slow going in a few places, but the addictive pull of everything in between keeps those pages flying until there are none left. This is definitely an adult read & not for the squeamish as we venture into some very unpleasant situations on the main character's journey through drug addiction to dealings with some shady peeps onto more intense scenes of torture & lust. In all honesty I tend to steer clear of books with extremely dark or serious topics (especially ones dealing with abuse) & this book does contain all of the above. However I feel like the author did not go overboard for the most part & I'm glad I gave this book a shot. I believe she did an excellent job bringing to light what I can only imagine such addiction & withdrawal might put one through. Raw emotion mixed with perseverance to not fall back into old habits play a big part of this story, but there is so much more too. With each new character she offers us such variety from some very intimidating vampires to humans with a wide array of supernatural abilities aka pushers to the lowest of low scumbags wishing only to suck the life out of whomever/whatever they can. Then there is Lachlan who I am very glad joined this adventure along with his crew who added some very entertaining moments to Addison's tale. Throughout it all I laughed, I cried, & I begged for more! I will be keeping an eye on more to come from Emily Cyr. On a side note ... I was impressed with the narrator for the audio book too as she was spot on with these characters & the needed emotion/tone for each situation. It only took me as long as it did to finish because I could listen while working, & when too busy had to continually pause to answer calls. Definitely an enjoyable book to listen to aside from the cringe worthy moments, of course. LOLz
The story was pretty darn good too. I sympathized with Addison from the beginning. She's done dumb things, and she owns up to it. The vampires are intriguing. These aren't necessarily friendly, huggy vampires. They're pretty alpha and used to getting their way. Many don't think much of humans, and they have a hierarchy amongst themselves that they seem to follow for the most part. It's almost like a good cop/bad cop kind of thing between Cannon and Lachlan. Or at least that's the way it feels to me, because I'm not sure who I trust as far as the vampires are concerned. If I trust them at all. Push and Pull by Emily Cyr was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
This is the first book I've read for this author and what a pleasure it was to read. I'm a major paranormal romance fan....though this book could also go under the paranormal suspense genre as well. I REALLY loved this story. Ms. Cyr has created a new twist to add to her vampire tale in this exciting romantic suspense. Blackwood brothers Cannon & Lachlan are both different, save one thing....they are both vampires. Cannon being Master of all Vampires and despite him being totally hot and sexy....he is also a smug, sadistic jerk. Where Lachlan, also being hot and sexy, is a bit more caring and doesn't take pleasure in the misery of others. Enter the lovely Addison Fitzpatrick, a recovering heroine addict, clean for seven years. Addison is what called a "Pusher"....she has special powers or gifts, hers being incredible speed and telekinetic abilities. Having been "bound" to Cannon these seven years, she is indebted to him for three "favors". To pay off a "favor" she is forced to work with Lachlan and his team to uncover dark secrets at a genetics lab. Throughout this book the beautiful "Pusher" feels pulled between the handsome Vampire brothers....with her heartfelt feelings for Lachlan on one side and her being indebted to Cannon and his you-are-mine attitude on the other. This book is like X-Men-meet-Dracula-meet Sneakers-meet- the Manhattan Project....if not familiar with these movies, look them up. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in this amazing series....Give and Take!
what a fabulous read !!!!
Outstanding, awesome, and I loved it. The concept that the main character had but a drug addict put me off a bit even though I knew that it was a part of her past but I was anxious about how it would affect her present. That like every part of her past has made her the woman of strength that she is today. In this urban fantasy Addison's transformations starts where many do, at the lowest point of her life. Now her life is going well except that hanging over her is a debt she owes to a the Master Vampire and now he call in that debt. A little Mission Impossible, a lot of steam, and some solid connections that matter, all bring this novel to an irresistible boil. I can't wait to read more about this mismatched crew. There are so many possibilities for problems in the future that it will take at least several books to cover the all and I am sure that Miss Cyr has ideas that haven't even been hinted at yet. That is great because the series will be long; that it terrible because I don't want to wait to find out what happens to my newest friends. The writing is outstanding and I did not notice any editing distractions.
