Bad Reputation by Lily Luchesi

Book review of BAD REPUTATION by Lily Luchesi!
She's a mercenary on a mission.

Bree Carson is an Undead assassin who makes her living using her supernatural abilities to kill criminals of all kinds, protecting humanity. But Chicago's new mayor wants her and all other paranormals either jailed or killed, and Bree's bad reputation has her at the top of the list.

When she's arrested one night, she's confronted by the mayor...but not for an execution. Ilona wants to hire Bree for a very specific mission that will prove to be personal and potentially harmful to them both.

Can they put their differences aside in order to save a life?

Wicked-cool Bree is a mercenary, taking out evil supernatural/paranormal beings if the price is right. Of course, dealing with evil beings is often its own reward in Bree's mind. One night, she's arrested and taken to the mayor, the same mayor who is known for her intolerance toward paranormal/supernatural beings, who has an interesting proposition for her. What happens next is a bunch of kick-butt action with some very interesting twists.

Bad Reputation may be short but it packs a punch! I loved seeing a couple of strong-willed female protagonists working together to achieve a goal. Both of their characters are intriguing and the action is amazing. While elements of the premise have been done before, Luchesi puts her own unique spin on them to provide readers with an exhilarating experience. There are a couple of mind-blowing plot twists that add another layer of interest to the plot. I was a bit disappointed to finish the book so quickly; however, I think it was an hour-and-a-half well spent.

If you like vampire stories, action, and snarky female protagonists, I think you'll enjoy Bad Reputation!
