Review: Piper's Fury by Rachel Firasek

Piper's Fury (A Passion of the Soul novel)It's an empath thing...

Using your "powers" to help the Dark Hills Police Department hunt down serial killers doesn't leave much time for dating. Not that Piper Anast is complaining. The last thing she needs is some guy brushing up against her and pumping his pornographic thoughts into her head.
When she meets Bennett Slade, a sexy, tormented vampire, Piper stumbles headlong into a telepathic connection with his missing daughter. She can't leave the kid to the evil surrounding her unwanted visions, nor can she resist her draw to Slade. He's the first guy she's been able to touch vision-free in, well, forever.
As she and Slade close in on the evil creature holding his daughter, Piper's powers morph into a deadly fury. To save Slade's daughter-and herself-Piper must face down demons she never knew she had and trust the one thing she keeps from everyone.

Her heart.

My Thought's:

I am so excited to do this review.   I have read many Vampire books, and sometimes find they are all the same with just a bit of a twist.  Piper's Fury is not your average Vampire book, it is a story that will leave you wanting more.  
Piper has psychic abilities and her job is to help the local Police Department with cases they can not solve. Touching people for Piper can sometimes be a problem,as she can see into their minds, thoughts and sometimes their souls.  She meets Bennett Slade through Mable, Mable who has taken care of Piper since her mothers murder.  Mable's nephew Gage, who has been in love with Piper since childhood brings his new bride to dinner and his new bride's cousin, Slade.  Piper is drawn to him for reasons she can not figure out right away.  
Bennett Slade has a tortured past like Piper and is in need of Piper's special abilities.  Slade approaches Piper and ask's for her help to find his daughter who is only 5-years old. She refuses him at first, but his daughter finds Piper in a dream and now Piper doesn't seem to be able to refuse him much longer.  
While fighting Vampires, Demons, and trying to find Slade's daughter, Piper is also trying to fight her desire to be with Slade, and deal with what she unravels about her own identity along the way.  

I can't say anymore or I will have this review filled with spoilers.  The first chapter pulled me in completely and had me captivated, and I found myself not being able to put this book down. If I did have to, I was thinking about it lol.  I love the fast paced action, I love Piper's strong feisty attitude, her caring sensitive side (when she lets people see it) and she drives a Ducatti, now that's freakin cool. 
Slade, well what can I say about Slade, yummy.  He has all the manners a woman wants in her man, but still holds that mysterious allure that every woman loves.  They have fantastic chemistry together, they made me laugh, made me get mad when Piper was being stubborn, but cheer them on when things were getting steamy.  It would be a big mistake to miss out on this book, it's funny, steamy, sexy the characters are wonderful, I loved this book, has all the right ingredients of a great Paranormal, mystery/thriller with a love story in the mix.  
I can not wait to read book 2. Check it out you will not be disappointed.
