Publisher's Summary

Camille Ellis has tracked many killers during her career, but this time it's personal. Cut off from conclave resources, she won't let a small thing like a suspension keep her from accepting Cord Graeson's offer of help.

Pretending to be mated to him is one way to secure allies, but the best that can be said of the Chandler Pack is they haven't killed or eaten her. Yet. Between the alpha's displeasure and the pack's distrust of fae, she's working overtime to keep her head above water.

Just when the fur starts to fly, a tip cracks her case - and her life - wide open.

Story moves forward, Cam gains power

This is the second book in the three-part story of Cam. It ends with a cliffhanger so be prepared to move on to book 3. The overall storyline makes good progression with Cam and Cord defining the relationship and Cam's closest family members being introduced. The story takes place on or near Cord's pack territory. Cam is on paid leave and trying to find Harlow. Cord is going to help but pack politics keep getting in the way. There is a lot of growth in Cam's character. Her power is growing and she is coming to terms with her relationship with Cord. A part of the mystery is solved but it leaves you with more questions. Also, there is a cliffhanger at the end. I was bummed to see Cam injured after all the focus on her changing powers. Narrator did a great job.

🌻Am enjoying it now!🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻


Update, I restarted this trilogy a fourth time and after the introduction of the plot, characters and the characters’ supernatural gifts, I started to really get into the book. Be aware that this is a trilogy and book one and two do end in cliffhangers. If you acquired this book through the “ included” section, you’ll be happy to know the entire trilogy is included in this section.

I feel I must address another reader’s review that compared this book to the writings of penthouse. She must be referring to a different book because neither book one or two contains any sex, sexual references or even dirty talk🙁!

What this trilogy has been is a supernatural, paranormal crime book with a slow burn romance, on the side. The Hero, Heroine and their friends, are on a hunt for a kidnapper and killer of young girls. There are some disturbing descriptions of the state of the bodies but, the author definitely hasn’t gone overboard. I’m glad I tried this book again.

ZOMG... Horrible Performed!!

So it's hard to even get interested in the book let alone want to continue listening!
So robotic at times it's painful with weird pauses... she wouldn't be so bad if she would keep a nice flow and be a little less robotic....
the performance is pretty underwhelming to be sure.

Better once you realize it is an ongoing series

The bad guy (creature) is pursued through books 1,2 and now 3... Other loose ends are tied, it's better once you know what to expect.

Entertaining

Good storyline that kept me listening the entire audiobook. Interesting characters that are likable. A couple of different issues going on that kept the story enthralling. The story ends on a hook. The narrator did a great job!

I want to love this book but

The story has way to much going on and jumps around. It would be much better if they were able to tackle one problem then another instead of jumping around so much.

Head Above Water Bk 2

In Book 2 we find Camille Ellis a profiler that hunts killers - Camille is an independent shifter - with special skills she keeps hidden from the normal public. When Cord Graeson's (pack beta) asks for help locating missing pack members Cam is forced to notice her attraction to Cord....even though his alpha is not pleased because of his bias towards fae.

This book amps up the attraction between Cam and Cord and makes you want to choke some of the other characters in this story -

Not for me!

DNF - 80%

3 Stars for me!

My rating range throughout the story... 2 - 3 Stars

Scenes with heat.. Not really

The back story... Continuation from book 1

The Romance... Not sure if there is.

The drama explosion... Did not get that far.

Final Notes... I am going to stop at this point in the series as I cannot get into the story. The author has built a world but it just isn't for me.

HEA or HFN??
