Hell's Belle by Karen Greco
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
If you are looking for a feel good book with a touching romance, then this is not it. If you are looking for a gritty, action-packed urban fantasy with witty banter then Hell's Belle is the book for you.
Nina Martinez is a half-vampire, half-human who is part of a special government agency, Blood Ops, that deals with supernatural crimes. Nina has spent most of her life with the Blood Ops team training to defeat the monsters that prey on humans. She has moved back to Rhode Island to help her aunt with the bar they co-own and to investigate the increasing paranormal activity plaguing her hometown. This investigation will have Nina crossing paths with Max, a hot FBI agent. Will things steam-up between Nina and Max? Will this investigation have both of them in over their heads?
Nina is one kick-ass heroine. She learns more about who she is and the powers she possesses as the story develops. I enjoyed the amusing repartee between the characters. Both the characters and the plot were well developed. This is my first time reading anything by Karen Greco, but it will not be my last. I look forward to Nina's next adventure.
