“I'm Jaz Parks. My boss is Vayl, born in Romania in 1744. Died there too, at the hand of his vampire wife, Liliana. But that's ancient history. For the moment Vayl works for the C.I.A. doing what he does best--assassination. And I help. You could say I'm an Assistant Assassin. But then I'd have to kick your ass.Our current assignment seemed easy. Get close to a Miami plastic surgeon named Assan, a charmer with ties to terrorism that run deeper than a buried body. Find out what he's meeting with that can help him and his comrades bring America to her knees. And then close his beady little eyes forever. Why is it that nothing's ever as easy as it seems?”

A kick-ass heroine, a hot vampire boss, quirky and fun sidekicks and a lot of action and adventure… What else can you ask of an Urban Fantasy series? The Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin definitely has all that and so much more.
Jaz is an assassin’s assistant for the CIA. She works for Vayl, a Vampire who was killed by his Vampire wife almost 300 years ago. From the start we get to see that they have a great working relationship that has a lot of potential for more.
Jaz is sarcastic, smart, strong and stubborn; she is great at what she does and it’s impossible not to love her, specially for her flaws.
Vayl is a mystery, there is much we get to find out about him throughout the series and so much more question we get to ask and wait for it’s answers. Vayl is also a kick-ass assassin that would be scary if he wasn’t so charming.
As the series go along we get to know great side characters that just make things more interesting.
One of my favorite things about the series is Vayl and Jaz’s chemistry, they are perfect for each other, but Jennifer definitely has a talent to give us a compelling “will they, won’t they” scenario throughout the books and the wait is well rewarded towards the last couples books.
The only down side of this is that Rardin does not elaborate on any smexing that happens or that might happen, for smut fans that can be a let down. However personally, even though I’d love to get to witness some more explicit loving action between Jaz and Vayl, i love them just the way they are and the plot of all the novels is extremely well written, full of action and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
The Jaz Parks serie sis definitely a great one fore any Urban Fantasy out there, I just wish i saw more people talking about it. If you haven’t read this series yet, you seriously have to right away.
