Lucy and Riley have a secret. Lucy hates Riley, but he is her guilty pleasure. She is crazy attracted to him and can't seem to stop herself. If has ruined her high school years, so far.
Riley lives right next door. The hockey star, and all around best looking student. He needs her help now. He wants to do all he can to stay on the team. This could be Lucy's chance for some payback.
Such a short but very hot story. These characters have an extremely shocking attraction. I found myself strangely enthralled. Now I cannot wait to read the next installment in this soon to be epic series. I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Blood & Ash The Jezebel Files #1 Deborah Wilde Urban Fantasy Te Da Media January 14, 2020 eBook 384 Kindle Unlimited
Cold-blooded kidnappers. Long-lost magic. When things get serious, she goes full Sherlock.
Ashira Cohen takes pride in being the only female private investigator in Vancouver. With her skills, her missing persons case should be a piece of cake.
She wasn't counting on getting bashed in the skull, revealing a hidden tattoo and supernatural powers she shouldn't possess.
Or the bitter icing on top: a spree of abductions and terrifying ghostly creatures on a deadly bender.
And don't even get her started on the golems.
Reluctantly partnered with her long-time nemesis Levi, the infuriating leader of the magic community, Ash resolves to keep her focus on the clue trail and off their sexual tension because WTF is up with that?
But with a mastermind organization pulling strings from the shadows and Levi's arrogance driving her to pick out his body bag, can Ash rescue the captives and uncover the truth or will the next blood spilled be her own?
Blood & Ash is the epic first novel in The Jezebel Files. If you like headstrong heroines, complex mysteries, and a dash of red-hot romance, you'll love Deborah Wilde's laugh out loud tale.
“I knew you were the kind of woman to ruin my day.” “Aww, Leviticus,” I said. “Don’t tempt me. Properly motivated, I’ll ruin your life.” “I don’t doubt it. - 44% Blood & Ash
Blood & Ash is a brand new Urban Fantasy series by Deborah Wilde. It’s a whirlwind adventure with a dash of Alice and Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, and Hidden Legacy series.
The story takes place in Vancouver, Canada with a lot of Jewish mythology rooted in.
Ashira is a human private investigator working in a world where magic exits until an unexpected accident happens and now she’s got magic. Ashira was a fun character. I liked how her mind worked. She’s a Sherlock Homes type character and theirs a lot of references to her love of Homes.
Levi her nemesis and the leader of the magic community. Boy he’s a sexy one, but also very put together. He needs to loosen up and have his world turned upside down.
The story moves at a break-necking speed. With that the world building isn’t very well explained. We get a lot of different things thrown at us and it can be a lot to take in. We don’t get much time to digest until after you’ve devoured the book. I am hoping more things will be explained as the series progress.
The story is full of action packed scenes and a few different mysteries to be solved. We’ve got missing kids, something killing magical people, and Ashira getting magical powers. So many mysteries to solve and not all are answered in this first installment.
The romance was secondary to the mysteries. Levi and Ashira are like oil and vinegar. They have a lot of witty comments and comebacks for each-other, but you can defiantly tell that theirs an attraction between them. I liked the banter, snarky comments, and witty humor in this novel. Though at this point in the story the romance just didn’t fit. These two have known each other for decades and for some reason they choose now to kick off a romance. I’m not won over on the romance end and I don’t think it’s needed in the series.
Blood & Ash was a nice start to The Jezebel Files series. It’s a snarky detective urban fantasy read and I’m looking toward to continuing the series.
Rated: 3.5 Stars
