Patrol Log: 4312122016
Seven years ago, Addison Fitzpatrick found herself in a bit of a bind. In true Addison-fashion, she'd angered a drug dealer; she may have “forgotten” to pay him. Just when it was time to pay the piper, she was offered a way out by an unlikely being. Cannon Blackwood, master of vampires, made her an offer she couldn't refuse. Now, Addison owes Cannon three favors.
Seven years after that fateful meeting, just as Addison’s life is getting back on track, Cannon calls in one of the favors she owes him. There is a new drug that threatens the very existence of the vampire race and Cannon needs Addison, along with his brother Lachlan, who happens to be a professional thief, to steal it and destroy any evidence of it.
Not only is the future of the vampires on the line, but with both Cannon and Lachlan vying for her attention, her heart is as well. Addison has difficult choices to make and dangerous favors to repay if she wants to see the light of another day.

Addison Fitzpatrick is a pusher, she has super human abilities of
speed and telekinesis, and she's a mess. Caught in the middle of a
drug addiction, and owing her supplier a ton of money, she is rescued
by the most unlikely person or should I say thing. Her unique
strengths is the only thing that can save or her kill her.
The world that Addison lives in has for sure a pretty interesting
one. The public is aware of people they call “pushers”, each one
possessing different abilities. They also know about the vampires
that live amongst them. The vampires in this world though don't hide
from the sun, nor do they melt from holy water, or even stepping on
sacred ground. When Addison finds herself bound to one, Cannon
Blackwood one of the most powerful vampires around, she learns just
how dangerous they really can be. The bond she has with Cannon
allows him to pull her to his beck and call whenever he so desires.
She owes him her life, in return she must stop the drug use and come
whenever he calls her with no questions asked. I found this
arrangement fare at first, but then when he tries to seduce her, and
even stake claim to her, all romantic gestures were lost on me.
Cannon is a piece of shit that has the power to act like a spoiled
brat and take whatever he decides he wants. Seven years later she is
called by Cannon to fulfill one of her first obligations to him.
Addison is now introduced to Cannon's brother Lachlan. The both of
them are to work together on a job Cannon needs done, but their first
impressions of each other are not good. They definitely have a rocky
start, and I find it interesting where the story line goes with them.
Addison came from a very abusive past, and the drug addiction wasn't
surprising because of that. The writing and emotion that went into
Addison's history felt very personal, real which made Addison's
character more believable and endearing. I really appreciated the
action scenes that took place, and the plot. The entire book had me
captivated, and worrying for what would become of Addison. She's
such an unlikely heroine but at the same time so very fitting to
become one. I empathize with Addison and want to see her win. I'm
on pins and needles for the next book in this awesome new series!
Rebecca Mason-Wygal narrates for Emily Cyr. This is my first
experience listening the Rebecca, and I thought she was very lovely.
The recording quality was nice, and the music at the end and
beginning of each chapter was a great touch! Rebecca had that tone
of voice that was just right for Addison's age, and the little gravel
in the back of her throat that I would imagine someone like Addison
would have. Being a junkie and emotional wreck all the time takes a
toll on ones soul and body, so like I said the voice was perfect. I
think she did a great job, and I look forward to hearing more from
her in future books.
