Dancing with the Devil by Keri Arthur

Title - Dancing with the Devil
Author - Keri Arthur
Genre - Paranormal, Fantasy, Mystery
Source - NetGalley
Private Investigator Nikki James grew up on the tough streets of Lyndhurst and believes there’s nothing left to surprise her. But all that changes the night she follows a rich man’s daughter into the shadows and finds herself caught in a war between two very different men. One is a madman, intent on destruction. The other has his own heart of darkness.
For three hundred years, Michael Kelly has existed in life’s shadows, gradually learning to control his vampire cravings. He is convinced that no one can breach his formidable barriers—until he meets Nikki. With her powerful psychic abilities, Nikki swiftly invades both his mind and his heart. Nikki knows how dangerous love can be . . . but if she wants to survive, she must place her trust in this man who could easily destroy her. For only together can they overcome the evil threatening to destroy them both.

Dancing with the Devil has telekinesis, telepathy, vampires, zombies, and witches. Technically I should love this book but I don't. I'm meh about it.

Nikki and Michael didn't really do anything for me, Jasper the evil vampire didn't creep me out. There wasn't anything wrong with the way the story was written either but I just couldn't connect to the characters, any character.

I did finish the book. It ended frustratingly, but I kind of expected that because Dancing with the Devil is Book 1 in the Nikki and Michael Series.

2.5/5 - Didn't hate it, didn't love it.
