There’s a new player in Lyon City powerful enough to shut down the city’s electric lines and the job is right up Volt’s alley.

Volt isn’t always the easiest man or wizard to deal with. The only person sane enough to put up with his bullshit is his apprentice, tabby shifter Heath Bones, but even Heath’s patience is running out.

He wants Volt badly, but the elemental only cares about his work and his brothers at Havoc’s Crew. Quitting his job and leaving Volt is the best decision he’s ever made, right until he’s taken hostage by a major league demon.

Vanquishing demons, rescuing damsels, and ravishing them after is all part and parcel of being a member of Havoc’s Crew, but Heath isn’t just any damsel. The more Volt tries to sizzle his desire for his apprentice into nothing, the more it threatens to explode into high voltage.

High Voltage is the second book in the Havoc’s Crew series by author Angelique Voisen.  I will say this book is a letdown compared to the first book.  Maybe I was expecting more, but this seemed to lack the fire and soul the first book had. However I know that sounds like I hated it, I didn’t, I just felt let down is all.
Volt is a great character.  He conjured a demon when he was a kid. He couldn’t control said demon and it cost him his best friend’s life. This scarred Volt. He is scared to find love again because the demon is still on the loose.   Havoc took him in changed his life, but he cannot let go of that fear.
Heath now Heath I adored. He is funny, kind, and just who Volt needs. The light to his darkness. He is getting tired of Volt not letting him in. He actually tries to leave his teacher. But can Volt let him go is the question.
This has some great characters. Lots of friendships and world building in this book. I would suggest reading these books in order they do build on each other. If you love this series I think you would love this book too.  For me the first book had better writing and more connection but this book does a great job of moving us along and building friendships.
