Which is stronger: blood ties or a battle-tested friendship? That’s the question Gin Blanco asks when a friend’s long-lost relative strolls into town. The suspicious reunion is a surprise for everyone—and a big problem for Gin. Book fourteen in the New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series RT Book Reviews calls “unbeatable entertainment!”
It’s not easy being queen bee of an underworld abuzz with crooks and killers. Wielding my potent Ice and Stone elemental magic will only get me so far—my real secret is my tight-knit makeshift family, a motley crew of cops and criminals, dwarves and playboys. My foster-brother Finnegan Lane is my right-hand man, but when his suddenly not-dead relative comes back into the picture, I’m the one on the outside looking in.
It’s funny how life works: one minute your best friend is rock-steady, and the next he’s doe-eyed and buying into this whole loving-relative routine to the point of ignoring you. I’d like to be happy for Finn, I really would. But all of my instincts are telling me that beneath the syrupy sweet demeanor and old-fashioned charm, this sudden interloper is planning something. The whole shtick leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. This person might have avoided the grave once, but I’ll put anyone who hurts Finn in the ground—for good.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
How do you tell someone who thought their Mother was dead, but is actually still alive? In BITTER BITE that is just what Gin has to tell Finn. All his life he thought his Mother was dead, but she left him. She was a cold-hearted bitch. When Finn’s Father leaves a file for Gin to find, she follows the clues that leads her to the truth. Before she can let Finn know that his Mother is alive, she walks back into his life. Now, what does his Mother really want? Well, like everyone else they want Rule Ashland’s underworld. Gin now controls Ashland and Finn’s Mother wants to kill Gin to gain control. The best way to do this is to get in the good with her baby boy. Cause dissension between Gin and Finn and watch everything tumble. Looks good on paper, right? Only, Gin will do everything in her power to pull the blinders off Finn and expose his Mother as the cold-hearted bitch that never loved him in the first place. I love Gin and the rest of the gang in this series. If you have not started to read it, trust me start today. I loved this story and cannot wait to see what is next. I give BITTER BITE 5/5 STARS.
