Review: Black Aggie (Sentinels, #1) by Evie Jayne

Raph lives by a code. Do not mess with the victim, but what is a monster hunter supposed to do with a woman like Bette?

Bette Spencer's life has been shattered by tragedy not once, but twice. Her mother's unsolved homicide still haunts her and the recent murder of her nephew has reopened old wounds.

When roughly handsome Raphael shows up at her doorstep claiming to be FBI, Bette is instantly suspicious. And attracted. He knows something about her nephew’s death that he's not telling her.

Raphael Wilder is a sentinel, a hunter of things that go bump in the night. Over a decade ago he made a mistake that cost his father’s life. He's hunted alone since that night, refusing to risk another life. But loneliness is starting to eat at his heart.

Desperate for closure, Bette pushes her way into Raphael's life. Only to learn that the world is not what it seems and sometimes murderers are genuine monsters.

Raphael, a sentinel who hunts things that haunt the night finally met his match in Bette.  Her nephew’s death is what brought Raphael to her town and the case that his father botched. He never thought he would come up against a spook that would endanger the woman he has come to care about.

Everyone loves a good ghost story, me included. This paranormal romance was a fun, quick read. This was a good beginning to a new series by Evie Jayne. I really enjoyed the characters and her take on sentinels, the ones who guard the human world from the paranormal one. Bette was strong, courageous and open to the new things Raphael has brought into her life. She followed Raphael into the cemetery where her nephew was killed; then again by herself. Raphael, whether he realizes it or not he is looking for more out of life and he puts his life in danger to find it.

It was packed with mystery, romance, and paranormal that can satisfy every reader. It was short enough to read in one setting and keeps the reader intrigued until the end. I am looking forward to continue the series as Raphael’s siblings all have their story to tell. There was some confusion between Raphael and Bette’s point of views. One minute it would be Bette’s view then the next it would be Raphael’s view without any separation or clear distinction.

I was gifted a copy of this book from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are my own and I was in no way compensated.
