J. K. Beck - When Pleasure Rules

Seven innocents have been brutally murdered in Los Angeles, yet the Shadow Alliance has no suspects and no leads. As the body count mounts, the age-old feud between vampires and werewolves threatens to explode.

Lissa Monroe - a strong-willed, ravishing succubus who entices men to surrender their souls - agrees to go undercover for the Alliance. Her mission: infiltrate the mind of werewolf leader Vincent Rand, a ferociously alluring enemy who exerts a powerful hold over her. As the City of Angels teeters on the brink of apocalypse, these two adversaries must join together in order to survive an even more lethal enemy hidden in plain sight.

Comment: I'm enjoying this series immensely. The characters seem realistic (even tough it's a paranormal series) and their decisons and attitudes too.
I wished there'd be a bigger instinctive reaction from the main male character because he is a werewolf and in the folklore, wolves search their mates and when finding them they want them in a visceral way, they know it's that one. In this case that didn't really happened and I kind of wished to see that, but well, it was a no-go.
The plot was ok, not grat, not awful, and the strongest point it's the characters, I think. They rock and the reader wants to know more and to see the other characters happy. It's great to see a happy ending as well.
