It is hard to find a new take on urban fantasy, and very easy to make some cliche story. While Don't Rush Me builds off a lot of familiar elements in urban fantasy, it also brings in its own. For one, the main character is a human. Although, she is not quite human and her unique gifts have her thrown into a middle of a missing persons investigation.
Nora entered foster care when she was seven. Her natural ability to attract males made her a target for sexual abuse. If this is a trigger then I would highly suggest that you stay away from this book. The main character is constantly dealing with the trauma of her past. While it builds up her character I do wish that it was dealt with a bit more tack and less of a plot move.
The book is well written with engaging characters. The plot is not a surprise and is fairly straightforward. There are still questions that are left at the end of the book. I am sure they will be addressed as the series progresses. The story could have been more complex and at times it was completely cheesy. However, I really enjoyed reading the book and plan to continue on in the series. The strength is int he word combinations and character development. Although it would be great to see the writers continue to develop more dynamics.
If you like urban fantasy and are looking for something different that is worth the read then I would recommend that you check out Don't Rush Me.
