An amazing second book in the FREAKS Squad series! I dove into this book immediately after finishing Book 1 (Mind over Monsters) and can not say enough about it! It will drag you in and won't let you go! An Urban Fantasy with Humor, mystery and a bit of horror...It is a must read!

TO CATCH A VAMPIRE is pretty much just Beatrice and Oliver working undercover together as a married couple. My only problem with the book? I really loved Will and now I really love Oliver. I have no idea who to root for anymore. I'm not really crazy about the covers for this series but I'm glad I picked up book 1 despite it and book 2 was just as good.

I have really enjoyed getting to know Bea and the rest of the FREAKS. They each have there very own personality to add to the book and they all make it that much more interesting. Bea is still adjusting to her new life but she fits in perfectly with everyone else and is really kicking some ass. It was awesome to see Beatrice and Oliver connect and work so well together. They didn't get along as good in the beginning but as the book progressed you could tell they were growing closer and connecting more. I also liked digging into some of Oliver's past. He is so mysterious and it was nice to get a better picture of him. Bea's brother, wow that is about all I can say about that. I couldn't even imagine being that bitter towards someone, especially that I'm related to. Like book 1 there is plenty of action and suspense throughout TO CATCH A VAMPIRE.

This has been a rather enjoyable series.The characters are likable the plot is engaging and the world is easy to fall into.

All of the tropes are here: insecure young woman who only comes into her own when surrounded by other supernaturals, a secret government organizations that fights all sorts of fantastical crime, and an intriguing love triangle involving the woman, the ethically solid werewolf and an uber sensual vampire.

Sound familiar? Don't worry- it's a testament to the talent of the writer that this book manages to re-invigorate a well known (and, yeah, still beloved by many) narrative.

It helps that the book is funny by design, and that the character of Bea is so wonderfully flawed that you can't help but want to see what she chooses to do next. But what makes this book (and the other one in the series) stand out is that, throughout the paranormal funtimes, there is always an undercurrent of real emotion and fear of the unknown- be it a gang of vampires or the possibility of love.

Struggling to wade through this one, which is a surprise since the first book was so fun. Mostly it's the inconsistencies in the main character, Bea. Last book she's kicking rump, takes Oliver out (granted, she was panicked) out when he attacks her, and generally comes off as a woman learning to come to terms with her powers and new situation in life.

In this book, she's a walking advertisement for birth control. Perhaps she's emotionally stunted, but she reads worse than the most insipid barely-pubescent teen heroine in any YA novel. "I may llluuuurrrrrvvvv Will! Oh, Oliver is so yummy! Will actually values me! Oliver isn't wearing a shirt, oh, my!" Seriously, do reasonable adult women think like this? I seriously doubt it.

And we're told how powerful Oliver is compared to the average vamp...he's an Elder. But somehow two junior vamps manage to capture him and Bea to drag them off to the Master. Yeah, and all Bea does is whimper. Seriously...she WHIMPERS! No fighting, no using her psychokinesis, nada. She's a heroine in a gothic romance, "Oh, no, whatever shall I do as I'm just a GGGUUUURRLLL!!!"

Pathetic. The first book convinced me the entire series might be worth reading, but I'm not certain I'll even make it through the second book. Especially as, given the genre and the fact there's two more books, I'm pretty sure she'll miraculously morph into UberChick and somehow save the day.

If you like your heroines competent, reasonably confident, somewhat mature...you may want to skip this one. Bea reads like an early teen girl rather than a mid-twenties former school teacher...except even an early teen with power might...you know, think about using it when attacked, especially if she's been on life-or-death missions before.

This was the second novel in a terrific series that I wasn't sure I'd like at first. Having been won over with the first novel, I was excited to pick up the second one. No disappointments for me.

Our telekinetic heroine, Special Agent (FBI) Beatrice Alexander is still torn between her romantic emotions for two of her co-workers. The thing is crime will not wait for her to have her life in order.

The F.R.E.A.K.S. squad is activated when humans go missing and a vampire cabal is likely the transgressors. Will, the resident werewolf is off camping, so Beatrice joins Vampire Oliver undercover. The assignment quickly escalates into a terrorizing situation which not only endangers Beatrice but may mean the loss of one of her team mates.

This story was exciting, sad, emotional, and so well written that I can barely wait for the next releases coming out this year. This is not an usual horror themed novel.

Give this series a chance. I'm very glad I did!
