Review - Something Secret This Way Comes

Title: Something Secret This Way Comes 
(Secret McQueen #1)
Author: Sierra Dean

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Some secrets are dangerous. This Secret is deadly.
For Secret McQueen, her life feels like the punch line for a terrible joke. Abandoned at birth by her werewolf mother, hired as a teen by the vampire council of New York City to kill rogues, Secret is a part of both worlds, but belongs to neither. At twenty-two, she has carved out as close to a normal life as a bounty hunter can.
When an enemy from her past returns with her death on his mind, she is forced to call on every ounce of her mixed heritage to save herself-and everyone else in the city she calls home. As if the fate of the world wasn't enough to deal with, there's Lucas Rain, King of the East Coast werewolves, who seems to believe he and Secret are fated to be together. Too bad Secret also feels a connection with Desmond, Lucas's second-in-command...
Warning: This book contains a sarcastic, kick-ass bounty hunter; a metaphysical love triangle with two sexy werewolves; a demanding vampire council; and a spicy seasoning of sex and violence.

My Review:
I want to be just like Secret McQueen when I grow up!!! LOL. This book was absolutely amazing. I was captivated from word go. What first drew me to this novel was the cover. A girl with a gun and a smart ass "don't mess with me look" on her face. How could I pass it up!
The first night I started reading, I only stopped because my kindle died. Otherwise I would have read straight through. The characters are extremely likable and you so want Secret to kick ass! She is just one of those characters you can relate too. Her life hasn't been a piece of cake, but she's tried to create a bit of normalcy for herself.
As for Lucas & Desmond??? Can we say ssssseeeeexxxxy!!! Super Hot. Secret McQueen needs to pick one so I can have the other. =D
I usually don't read a lot of books with sex scenes in them, but those in this book were done very well.
And to top it all off during the last few chapters I was gasping out loud. I really never saw it coming.
Great Book. I can't wait for "A Bloody Good Secret."

My Rating:
An Amazing Wedding Cake

you can pick up this awesome book @
