"Hector Dean is shaved, tattooed, and totally ripped-and he has a deadly secret. He is a walking weapon, capable of killing with a single brush of his fingertips. Little wonder he's determined to remain on his own. But Noelle Tremain is a temptation like no other. She is beautiful and rich, with a party girl smile that hides a shocking vulnerability, and from the beginning his sizzling attraction to her is undeniable. For the first time, his stone-cold resistance is tested. But to be with her, he risks destroying her. When a wealthy businessman is murdered in New Chicago's seediest district, the two are partnered, and there's no escaping what they both want: each other. Yet neither Hector nor Noelle knows what to fear more-the killer case, or their own lethal desires"-- Cover verso.… (mere)

Noelle gives Hector a run for his money, I love learning more about Noelle and Ava's training days as well. Great laughs.

I *loved* Hector, and Noelle too, despite my general dislike of rich-girl or princessy characters. I preferred Ava and Ava's book, but enjoyed this one as well. Good angst, which I always love. And I really enjoy the world that Showalter has created here, and the characters in it. So, who is next? And really, when is Dallas's book? (3.5 stars) ( )

Dark Taste of Rapture
3 Stars

AIR agent in training, Noelle Tremain has her libido and heart set on her instructor, Hector Dean. Unfortunately, Hector is determined to keep Noelle at arms length, literally, as he is unable to control his deadly ability to kill with touch. But when Noelle and Hector are partnered on a case, there will be no escaping the smoldering passion between them.

Series note: This is the final book in Showalter's Alien Huntress series. However, the spin-off, Otherworld Assassin, is set in the same world and apparently continue the storylines.

To begin with, the exact nature and origin of Hector power is never explained. Moreover, his fear that his ability will harm or kill Noelle is understandable, but his repeated rejections, both physical and emotional, undermine the romance as Noelle's determination to have him makes her appear weak and spineless. This is exacerbated by her lack of self-confidence, which her snarky façade never manages to entirely mask.

Speaking of the snark, it is excessive, overdone and ridiculous. It is difficult to take characters seriously when they speak and behave like overgrown teenagers at a frat party.

The plot diverges from the Schön Queen storyline in the last few installments and returns to the alien sex trafficking arc from the first couple of books. This would be not be a problem if the investigation wasn't underdeveloped and slipshod. There is no real build up of suspense and the resolution is rushed and anti-climactic.

In sum, this is a disappointing end to the series as the romance is lackluster and the ongoing story arcs remain unresolved. Hopefully, the first book in the spin-off will provide some closure.

Amazing! Just like always, Showalter delivers a spectacularly funny, riveting story. I can't imagine a life that isn't enriched by her stories. ( )

The hero has arms that heat to unimaginable temperatures and after he accidently kills his girlfriend can't have sex with anyone but a hired hooker. Then he discovers he can masturbate and my god he takes to it like a fish to water. The heroine is one part of the dynamic Ava and Noelle duo and they join the AIR recruits with booty shorts and pig tales. The hero lusts after the heroine from the jump and is almost single minded in her desire for her though he refuses to consummate the urge (next to a few hot kisses) in fear he will kill her. But he jerks himself off nearly every chapter to help cope with it. I was so happy to see that he grew his hair out in the later chapters cause I don't like bald men. Also the heroine, though spunky and charming is a way was confusing. She paints herself as a slut but she's had only a small hand full of loves. She acts like a bubblehead and ditzy but is hurt and frustrated that no one takes her seriously or sees the true her. Well, maybe if you didn't act the part of an idiot so well people wouldn't treat you as such. I wasn't engaged in the later chapters as the story sort of fizzled. There was the murder and kidnapping mystery but mostly it was the very bland cat and mouse game that never really felt interesting to me. ( )
