Review: Lucky Break by Chloe Neill

Lucky Break by Chloe Neill
Series:  Chicagoland Vampires #10.5

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sultry Scale: 2 of 5 stars

In this thrilling new novella from the New York Timesbestselling author of Blood Games, vampire Merit bites off more than she bargained for when a romantic trip to a secluded Colorado town turns deadly.

Merit and Ethan are in desperate need of some alone time, far from the worries of Cadogan House, but trouble tends to follow wherever they go. Their attempt at a romantic getaway is quickly interrupted when one of Ethan's vampire friends shows up at their door--covered in blood and accused of killing her shifter husband.

Merit and her Master soon discover their vacation spot is far less idyllic than it appears. A centuries old quarrel between local vampires and shifters has made the town a perpetual supernatural battle zone, and this fresh blood has stirred the already volatile pot. Now, Merit and Ethan must put their passion on pause to figure out who's really responsible for the murder before all hell breaks loose...

This was a nice little novella featuring Ethan, Merit, Gabriel and Damien. It takes them out of the usual setting in Chicago, to a lovely valley in Colorado. (I love Colorado... I wouldn't mind living there one day.) It was nice to change settings after being embroiled in the Chicago drama for the past books.

Ethan and Merit venture to Colorado on vacation, but fall into the middle of an ancient feud between vampires and shifters. They had to call in reinforcements in the form of the yummy Gabriel and delectable Damien. I'm not sure why I am so drawn to the shifters in this series - but I am. Maybe Ms. Neill could be persuaded to give Damien a novella?

This is a short review for a short novella. This one includes romance, drama, murder, and forced spelunking! it's worth the read, so don't skip it as you continue the Chicagoland series.
