Seven years ago, Addison Fitzpatrick found herself in a bit of a bind. In true Addison fashion, she'd angered a drug dealer; she may have "forgotten" to pay him. Just when it was time to pay the piper, she was offered a way out by an unlikely being. Cannon Blackwood, master of vampires, made her an offer she couldn't refuse. Now, Addison owes Cannon three favors.
Seven years after that fateful meeting, just as Addison's life is getting back on track, Cannon calls in one of the favors she owes him. There is a new drug that threatens the very existence of the vampire race, and Cannon needs Addison, along with his brother Lachlan, who happens to be a professional thief, to steal it and destroy any evidence of it.
Not only is the future of the vampires on the line, but with both Cannon and Lachlan vying for her attention, her heart is as well. Addison has difficult choices to make and dangerous favors to repay if she wants to see the light of another day.

"More than a vampire book!"
The mystery is intriguing and keeps you fully involved. Addison is so real that you feel her emotions and she's just a little screwed up when it comes to Cannon and Lachlan who are hot, brothers and also vampires. The reader on the audible book is so good that you feel like your there.
"An exciting new series!"
Addison Fitzpatrick is a pusher, she has super human abilities of speed and telekinesis, and she's a mess. Caught in the middle of a drug addiction, and owing her supplier a ton of money, she is rescued by the most unlikely person or should I say thing. Her unique strengths is the only thing that can save or her kill her.
The world that Addison lives in has for sure a pretty interesting one. The public is aware of people they call “pushers”, each one possessing different abilities. They also know about the vampires that live amongst them. The vampires in this world though don't hide from the sun, nor do they melt from holy water, or even stepping on sacred ground. When Addison finds herself bound to one, Cannon Blackwood one of the most powerful vampires around, she learns just how dangerous they really can be. The bond she has with Cannon allows him to pull her to his beck and call whenever he so desires. She owes him her life, in return she must stop the drug use and come whenever he calls her with no questions asked. I found this arrangement fare at first, but then when he tries to seduce her, and even stake claim to her, all romantic gestures were lost on me. Cannon is a piece of shit that has the power to act like a spoiled brat and take whatever he decides he wants. Seven years later she is called by Cannon to fulfill one of her first obligations to him.
Addison is now introduced to Cannon's brother Lachlan. The both of them are to work together on a job Cannon needs done, but their first impressions of each other are not good. They definitely have a rocky start, and I find it interesting where the story line goes with them. Addison came from a very abusive past, and the drug addiction wasn't surprising because of that. The writing and emotion that went into Addison's history felt very personal, real which made Addison's character more believable and endearing. I really appreciated the action scenes that took place, and the plot. The entire book had me captivated, and worrying for what would become of Addison. She's such an unlikely heroine but at the same time so very fitting to become one. I empathize with Addison and want to see her win. I'm on pins and needles for the next book in this awesome new series!
Rebecca Mason-Wygal narrates for Emily Cyr. This is my first experience listening the Rebecca, and I thought she was very lovely. The recording quality was nice, and the music at the end and beginning of each chapter was a great touch! Rebecca had that tone of voice that was just right for Addison's age, and the little gravel in the back of her throat that I would imagine someone like Addison would have. Being a junkie and emotional wreck all the time takes a toll on ones soul and body, so like I said the voice was perfect. I think she did a great job, and I look forward to hearing more from her in future books.
"Pushers and Vampires, oh my!"
Wow! If you don't mind cursing, steamy sex scenes, paranormal romance and vampires, then this a phenomenal read. At first you think Addison is some pathetic, slip of a girl and wonder why so many men are into her. Then you learn she has some kickass power and is a pusher (humans with special abilities like running super fast, super human strength, or telekinetic powers). Since she owes Cannon for "saving" her, she is at his beck and call for 5 favors. Her first to help eliminate a super power drug that impacts vampires abilities. Great cliffhanger with Lachlan (the super hot vampire brother to Cannon)!
"Xmen meets Vampires"
This was an action pack listen! I loved every minute of it.
Addison is a bad ass and can stand on her own. She has some demons from her past that don't want to let her go. However, could two brothers chase away those demons?
Cannon is a powerful vampire who doesn't take any shit. While Locklyn is bad ass but has compassion in his heart whether he knows it or not.
These three must work together to stop a drug that could human and vampire kind alike.
This is a great story to listen to I enjoyed the narrator however the music and the sounds effects I could have done without. I can't wait until part two is on audible.
I really loved the main character Addison and her snarky personality! Never a dull moment in this story! I liked the author's take on vampires and really enjoyed the plot. The narrator was perfect for this book!
