Review: A Low Down Dirty Shane by Sierra Dean

A Low Down Dirty Shane (Misfits & Mayhem #1) by Sierra Dean
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Thick-skinned vampire assassin meets smart-mouthed druid archer. Run, Cupid, run.

Shane Hewitt has been many things—failed husband, supernatural punching bag, and now a bitch to the vampire council of New York City. He thought killing rogue vampires was the hardest thing he’d ever do. Until a hot redhead smashes into him, shouts orders and announces she’s saving his life.

The sole female warrior in a family of druids, Siobhan O’Malley knows how to take care of herself and protect the big city from beasties who breach gateways from the fae realm. The last thing she needs is a misguided, leather-clad hottie’s help to get the job done.

Except maybe he’s exactly what she needs. Siobhan is expected to be a willing, virginal sacrifice on her twenty-fifth birthday. Sex with Shane to stay alive? If he can pull his foot out of his mouth long enough and stop driving her crazy, no problem.

Now if only the bad guys would leave them alone long enough to get the deed done.

Warning: Contains a wee red-headed archer with deadly aim; a leather-jacket-wearing vampire hunter with a habit for saying all the wrong things; and a life-saving ritual that will leave them both panting.
My Thoughts: Oh, Shane! I cannot tell a lie, Shane ROCKS! He's a horn dog with a mohawk and I really love his off the cuff sense of humor. Need a virgin deflowered so that she doesn't end up unfairly sacrificed? Shane's your man. He's even honorable enough to make sure that's really what she wants before he gets all up in her business. There's also enough of a gentleman hiding under all that swagger to make sure she has a couple of happy endings before sealing the deal. Now, that's dedication to the task at hand!

Things I liked: Shane. Obviously. He's loud, sometimes obnoxious, and he jumps in with both feet when he's needed. He also has the most randomly hilarious thoughts about being Siobhan's knight in shining armor. Speaking of Siobhan, she's pretty much a badass. She has weapons that put a mere gun to shame and enough power to send the baddies back to where they came from. She also has a pretty sucktastic family. With family like that, who needs enemies?

I loved seeing the world that was established in Secret's series get a whole lot bigger. Shane tackles this new set of problems head-on despite his fear and the fact that he's handicapped by being a human with no supernatural powers. He's a loud mouth and he is REALLY good at saying the wrong things at the wrong time, but he's lovable all the same.

Needless to say, I am very excited about this spin-off series!

  1. I still need to attempt to get back into Secret's series. It's on my wishlist!

    1. This book was sooooo fun, Amanda. Shane is a total hoot. I don't think you've even *met* him yet. So, yes. You need to keep reading.
