All three books in the Night Hawk Series are now available in a single boxed set!

NIGHT HAWK (Book 1):
Sentenced to death at the hands of a demon, Naomi Hawk slips and falls eighty stories from a precarious ledge, resigning herself to the inevitable impact. Before she can escape her demons in eternal slumber, something sinister plucks her from the plummet, stealing her out of the night to sacrifice her forever to the shadows. Now, Naomi thirsts for justice… and revenge.

TIGRESS (Book 2):
Naomi's immortality is nullified, making her vulnerable to the ones who consider her their conquest. If she wasn't already walking over the hot coals of misfortune she would be obsessed with the next ambush. The shadow vaccine is hell in a syringe, the antidote turning Naomi’s blood into a lethal elixir, rendering her toxic to all vampires, including Damian.

Damian’s mortal world begins to shine when fatherhood hits his horizon, but plans for a bright future disintegrate when Lucifer comes to claim their Trinity child, playing dirty by framing Damian for murder. Now, Damian and Naomi are on the run from both Lucifer and the law. One wrong step and they could trigger Armageddon, or worse, the hope for our future could fall into Lucifer's greedy grip.

Night Hawk Trilogy by J.E. Taylor has the bones of a really great series. We have Naomi who’s boyfriend set her up to die. Rescued in the middle of falling and ends up being turned into a vampire by Damian. I loved that Damian is from Greek ancestry.  Tall Dark and handsome types are always my personal weakness.  Apparently Naomi’s too.
In the first book it is more about Naomi and Damian learning to get along and for Naomi to learn what she has turned into. 
I liked the strength Naomi has she is scared but she doesn’t just cower in the corner. She learns to fight back and really grows as a person
Damian is a man who has just learned he has someone he has to take care besides himself.  I liked watching him go from just protecting people to a man who truly cares and loves his mate.
Tigress and Trinity Rising are progressions from the first story. Tigress both Naomi and Damian get infected and how they deal with that turn of events and how their love brings them through is really good.   We also get to meet their child and see how their love has grown over the years.
I loved the premise of all the stories. Angels, demons vampires all things I love.  What was a drawback for me was the constant changing point of views. Sometimes we have Naomi telling the story sometimes Damian, but I felt still like an outsider. Them telling me a story rather than me being inside the story and feeling it unfold.   When a story uses first person POV I expect a lot more depth than this trilogy provided.  I think if the author stuck to a third person POV I might have liked it better, and not felt like there were break neck turns.
Over all a very good series I am glad I got to read. If you like a great paranormal story with a good storyline this is a great trilogy to pick up.
