Description:

Cold-blooded kidnappers. Long-lost magic. When things get serious, she goes full Sherlock.

Ashira Cohen takes pride in being the only female private investigator in Vancouver. With her skills, her missing persons case should be a piece of cake.

She wasn’t counting on getting bashed in the skull, revealing a hidden tattoo and supernatural powers she shouldn’t possess.

Or the bitter icing on top: a spree of abductions and terrifying ghostly creatures on a deadly bender.

And don’t even get her started on the golems.

Reluctantly partnered with her long-time nemesis Levi, the infuriating leader of the magic community, Ash resolves to keep her focus on the clue trail and off their sexual tension because WTF is up with that?

But with a mastermind organization pulling strings from the shadows and Levi’s arrogance driving her to pick out his body bag, can Ash rescue the captives and uncover the truth or will the next blood spilled be her own?

Review:

After reading and enjoying this authors Nava Katz series, I was excited to see she had another series out, too, and picked this up from Kindle Unlimited.

It starts with Ash out on a job as a P.I. - the only female P.I. in Vancouver - only the job isn't as straightforward as it seems. The person she's watching is Nefesh - a magic user - and Ash finds herself with a concussion after banging her head against a wall during a fight. Fast forward a little and her long time nemesis/frenemy and House Head, Levi, finds himself working with Ash to try and sort out a series of disappearances and deaths associated with the Nefesh community.

I enjoyed this. This author is great at the whole enemies to lovers in paranormal books. The initial greet between her two main characters is never a swoon it's more like instant lust with a dollop of male ego that puts the girl off for a long time. Ash and Levi had an interesting "thing" going on, a tension that erupted occasionally and I am very intrigued where that will go next.

As for the mystery? Well, I'll be honest, I wasn't all that intrigued by that bit. It was the above mentioned chemistry between our main characters that kept me reading - and I've already downloaded book 2! Off to start it now.
