Hunters are a lonely breed, and Conor's no exception--until he meets Brenna. Even though she slinks in unannounced and kills the wight he's hunting down, and he should be backing carefully away, he can't get her blinding smile or gorgeous curves off his mind. The girl's a mystery he can't resist, so since they're both after the same caster who's unleashing these monsters, he suggests teaming up. Despite her initial reluctance, Brenna joins Conor's quest and soon the wights aren't the only thing the lusty lady is hunting down.
He's happy enough to satisfy her hungers, though he wishes she'd give him a few answers with her kisses. Soon enough he learns her secrets have repercussions. Faster than Conor can lift his Glock, he's drawn into a web of kidnappings and Unseelie mischief, and it's all concealing the machinations of a darker foe--one determined to bring Philly and the two hunters to ruin.

When I saw that paragraph of the synopsis, I knew this was a book I had to read and I'm glad I did. The characters of Conor and Brenna were well defined along with attraction between them. You felt the pull as the story progressed. It's nice to see a rough and touch hunter like Conor have soft side. You see that when he's with Brenna as well as when he's with the dogs. The story also delves into the family dynamics.
It was amazing how the author was able to incorporate the setting of one world while playing out a story in another that you were able to easily follow. Who wouldn't fall in love with a world of magical beings, those we read about in many other fantasy/sci-fi stories and the new that were created for this magical new world?
We walked among witches, flew with fairies, hunted alongside the hunters and came face to face with a breed of monsters never heard of before, the Unseelie and the wights.
I was on the edge of my seat as I turned each page wanting the answer to "Who is trying to infiltrate and ruin Philadelphia?". You'll have to read it to find out.
Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

HUNTING FOR SPRING is the first book in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles and we have the world building that will enable us to read the rest of the series, knowing who is who and who does what. Connor is a human Hunter--usually of the Fae--but he understands that just as not all humans are nice, not all Fae are 'bad'. Unfortunately, it's an opinion that is unpopular with his father and the man who was brought up as his brother. When he meets Brenna, he thinks she is a normal fae, which is also the opinion Brenna wants him to have as most people don't seem to think that highly of half-breeds. With Unseelie causing chaos and half-breeds disappearing, Connor and Brenna work together to put things back to normal--or as normal as they possibly could be.
This was a great introduction to a new world, where casters and hunters work to the same end, without working together as much as possible. I have to say, whatever his reasons, Connor's dad was a first-class jerk, with Liam not far behind. I loved how Connor was, and am thankful he turned out that way! Brenna is a sweet and sassy character, fully capable of standing on her own two feet but also willing to stand back when necessary. There is also a bunch of characters I want to know more about, as well as this world as a whole.
This was an exciting read, with plenty of action and adventure. With smooth transitions from one scene to the next, there were also no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The world building was on point, and all the characters had depth, with their own quirks and foibles. An excellent start to the series that leaves me wanting more. Absolutely recommended.
