Something Secret This Way Comes (Secret McQueen #1) by Sierra Dean

Something Secret This Way Comes (Secret McQueen #1) - Sierra Dean

Secret McQueen's name is almost legendary among vampires. She's ½ vampire, ½ werewolf bounty hunter who "... takes out rogue vampires at the request of the vampire council." As far as she knows, she's the only ½ vamp, ½ were hybrid and she guards the truth about her heritage - telling only a handful of people. But, she feels it's only a matter of time before her secret is out. Although she was born this way, she doesn't fully embrace her werewolf side. In fact, she's never shifted as an adult.


Sierra Dean paints a picture of Secret's distaste of her werewolf side and all things shifty. But, then Secret immediately falls for Lucas and Desmond because she's soul-bound to both. It felt like a quick switch, maybe too quick.

(show spoiler)


So, it's a surprise to her when her werewolf half is instantly attracted to a handsome stranger. Animal magnetism, it appears, is extremely difficult for her to control. She quickly learns just who this sexy stranger is and what this attraction means. In the process, she also learns a great deal more about her family history and another reason why her name is well-known.


In the six years she's been a bounty hunter, "... the closest anyone had ever come to truly killing [her] was Alexandre Peyton, and he had promised [her] that next time [they] met he wouldn't fail." When she notices his "mark" while rescuing a human, she knows their meeting will come sooner rather than later.


Last year, I read Secret's prequel, The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters. I liked it and was looking forward to more of the story. I enjoyed Something Secret This Way Comes and the opportunity to get to know Secret, Holden, Sig, Calliope (and others) better. I'm not a big fan of love triangles and this one has that in spades. Nevertheless, the ending of this one was such that I will definitely continue on with the series.
