Review: Hexslayer by Jordan L. Hawk

(Hexworld #3)
by Jordan L. Hawk
Release Date: October 6, 2017
Genre: M/M Paranormal Romance

Horse shifter Nick has one rule: never trust a witch.

Nick has devoted his life to making his saloon a safe haven for the feral familiars of New York. So when a brutal killer slaughters a feral under his protection, Nick has no choice but to try and catch the murderer. Even if that means bonding with a handsome Irish witch.

Officer Jamie MacDougal came back from the war in Cuba missing part of a leg and most of his heart. After his former lover becomes one of the killer’s victims, Jamie will do anything to solve the case.

Nick comes to Jamie with a proposal: after making a temporary bond, they will work together to stop the murders. Once the killer is caught, they walk away and never see one another again.

It sounds simple enough. But the passion that flares between the two men won’t be so easily extinguished. And if Nick can’t learn to trust his witch, he stands to lose everything—including his life.

I'm in love with this series. The world building and the story arc is just amazing. We finally get Nick's story. I know he does not come across as a likable character, but I have a soft spot for these bad boy. In fact, he might just be the most selfless character in this series. He basically live his whole life dedicated to saving and rescuing feral in the city, providing them with a sanctuary. Despite, his overbearing attitude and fight provoking tendency and 'I hate all witches', I really like him and I'm just so happy that he finally found his own witch. 

Jamie is a war vet that returned home with a broken leg and currently working for the MWP. Despite his experience with death and carnage, he still have a naivety and goodness in him. His view is very black and white and he follow the rules, a total opposite from Nick. Nick might seems like a bully and doesn't trust Jamie at all, but Jamie goodness and patience really did tame the wild horse. Seeing Rook's reaction to the changes in his grumpy, cynical brother is just icing on the cake. 

Nick and Jamie formed a temporary bond to investigate the murders of feral in the city that was being ignored by the higher ups. As usual, the suspense is well crafted that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Something horrible is at works and I can't put it down until the final page. I just discovered this series this month and went through all 3 books. I'm so ready for the 4th book to be release in a week time.
