Goodreads

A straight-laced policeman. A lighthearted thief. A murdered millionaire.

Fox shifter Malachi steals for one of the biggest crime rings in New York City. But when he witnesses the murder of a millionaire, the only person who can keep him safe is Dr. Owen Yates, forensic hexman for the Metropolitan Witch Police—and Malachi’s witch.

Owen is horrified to discover his familiar is an uneducated thief. Even worse, Malachi threatens to unleash Owen’s deepest desires…desires Owen can’t act upon, as he’s destined for an arranged marriage to secure the Yates family fortune

Their agreement: Malachi will be Owen’s lover as well as his partner, until the day of the wedding. But as their hunt for the murderer carries them from teeming slums to Fifth Avenue mansions, Owens begins to realize Malachi commands his heart as well as his body.

With dark forces drawing ever closer around them, Owen must decide whether to bow to the demands of duty, or to risk everything for the man he loves.




Hexmaker is as amazing as Hexbreaker! Wow, what a great follow up to the Hexworld series. I never thought I will fell so much for Dr. Owen Yates. When I read about him in previous book, I thought he is an old scholar. LoL! 

Owen is a young nobleman who is passionate about his job in MWP, however due to his obligation as an heir he might need to make some sacrifice to appease his family. Now, here comes the thieving fox, Malachi who was caught in a crossfire between the lawmaker and a murderer and thank goodness Owen is here to save the day. 

Owen is all preppy, responsible, honorable and always wanted to do the right thing, even bonding with a thief. I love the fact that Owen just accept Malachi with open arms despite Malachi's past because he is such a good man who will treat his familiar right. Malachi is also a fun and mischievous character although he is not as over the top as Cicero. Those bedroom scene is really spicy and kinky. 

The story arc and suspense surrounding the murder of a high society is also keep me flipping the pages. The event that unfold is some awesome story telling. Who is the bad guy here? And please don't hurt my Malachi! I wonder how long will this series play out because on one hand I want to read as many witch/familiar couples as possible, on the other hand I really need to know who the hell is the master mind behind all these crime.
