Review: Biting the Bullet

Biting the Bullet by Jennifer Rardin
Jaz Parks Series #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Buy: Amazon / B&N
I'm Lucille Robinson
(aka Jaz Parks).
This is a mission unlike anything my vampire boss, Vayl, and I have ever been on. It's not our usual take them out and run; it's an undercover mission that needs the whole gang: a psychic, an interpreter, and a weapons specialist. We're joining a Special Ops team to nail the Wizard, a major terrorist thorn in the military's side. We've never gone in with such heavy artillery before, but the more the merrier, right? Um . . . nope. At least not since Vayl and I learned part of our job is to ferret out a mole concealed in our unit.
To add to our problems, we're being harried by a pack of reavers bent on revenge, and targeted by a Seer who wants to share Vayl's power - at any cost. Oh yeah, and let's not forget the army of demonic, soul-sucking parasites either. This is going to be a blast.

I'm on the fence about this series. I like it but do not love it. I keep reading to see what happens but I found myself skimming this installment just to get to the end of it.
So far this series is written with more internal monologue (in Jaz's head) than actual dialogue and it gets a little much. I want more interaction between the characters.
Don't get me wrong the characters are great but I'm ready for something to happen romantically between Jaz and Vayl or Jaz and Cole. The whole will they, won't they is driving me nuts.
I enjoyed the Once Bitten, Twice Shy (1st) & Another One Bites the Dust (2nd) more than this one but I will continue the series to see where it leads.
The thing with reading series, there is usually one that stands out as the "stinker" and I'm hoping this is it for Jaz Parks and that the next one, Bitten to Death, will be better.

My Rating: 2.5
