Bring on the Night by Jeri Smith-Ready (Review)

What's Blood Got to Do With It?
  Recovering con artist Ciara Griffin seems to finally have it all. A steady job at WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock 'n' Roll. A loving relationship with the idiosyncratic but eternally hot DJ Shane McAllister. A vampire dog who never needs shots or a pooper-scooper. And after nine years, it looks as if she might actually finish her bachelor's degree!
  But fate has other plans for Ciara. First she must fulfill her Faustian bargain with the Control, the paranormal paramilitary agency that does its best to keep vampires in line. Turns out the Control wants her for something other than her (nonexistent) ability to kick undead ass. Her anti-holy blood, perhaps? 
  Ciara's suspicions are confirmed when she's assigned to a special-ops division known as the Immanence Corps, run by the Control's oldest vampire and filled with humans who claim to have special powers. To a confirmed skeptic like Ciara, it sounds like a freak fest. But when a mysterious, fatal virus spreads through Sherwood—and corpses begin to rise from their graves—Ciara will not only get a crash course in zombie-killing, but will be forced to put her faith, and her life itself, in the hands of magic.

I always get nervous when reading the newest in a series that I love. How can the author keep building onto a world and not disappoint me. Can it be done, is it possible? I have been burned and hurt before by series before.

Turns out Jeri Smith-Ready, does the impossible and keeps getting better and better with every book she writes. It's like she writes with the motto "take that bitches!" referring to her previous novels. Because if you think past books in WVMP were good then you are going to completely orgasm at Bring on the Night. Jeri brought it on all right; she brought it on like Woah!

Everything kept topping each other. I had no time to catch my breath. All the Shane, the Zombies, the Monroe (whom no longer ranks amongst my graces), and the sad… yes I got teary-eyed, ok FINE I cried, so what! It was just too much with all the, well all the awesome. A lot of explosive shit happens! Bomb after bomb that no series have ever dropped! Jeri Smith-Ready also has successfully scared me about my never having chicken pox. I see somebody who I suspect has it and I run. Funny thing’s usually children. You will understand the Chicken Pox thing once you read.

Still Ciara seems to get her happy ending which I like. Jeri understands me. Things don't need to end perfect for heroine but damn it, wrap it up and put a pretty bow on that shit! I do like the happily ever-err for right now despite it all.

I cannot wait for the next in the series though; true to form, I am nervous.
