Review Copy Source: Author
Hunters are a lonely breed, and Conor’s no exception, until the day he meets Brenna. Even though she slinks in unannounced and kills the wight he was hunting down, the girl’s a mystery and he can’t get that blinding smile or those gorgeous curves off his mind. Since they’re both after the same caster who’s unleashing these monsters, he suggests teaming up, and despite her initial reluctance, the hungry way she scans him down promises something powerful.

However, her secrets have repercussions, and faster than Conor can lift his Glock, he’s drawn into the web of kidnappings and Unseelie mischief, all concealing the machinations of a darker foe—one that plans to bring Philly to ruin.
HUNTING FOR SPRINGS had an original concept with a good cast of characters.

I want to start out by taking about the characters. As a hunter, Conor is expected to have zero emotions and kill without a conscience. Thankfully for him he has plenty of emotion and empathy. I found him to be tough, yet willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. Brenna's hiding a pretty big secret and knows Conor—as a hunter—will turn on her as soon as he finds out. She is pretty guarded—for good reason—, but you really get to know her as she opens up while partnering with Conor.

The romance between Conor and Brenna was one of those instant attraction, mutually guarded kinda things. Both have a huge draw towards each other, but are hesitant and don't trust each other off the bat. When they finally act on their feelings, events happen that pull them apart, only to act on their feelings again later and stick with it.

Although I found the story to be original and the characters like-able, I just didn't love everything put together. I wasn't excited to see what would happen next and I found myself bored at times waiting for the next big event. I probably wouldn't pick up a second book if there was one.

I gave it 3/5 stars
