This one appealed to me for a few reasons. It's being marketed as an urban fairy tale and it's by a writer, Jennifer Safrey, who has written four romance novels previously – Tooth and Nail is her first urban fantasy. Also, she owns a yoga studio and is a black belt in taekwondo!
Gemma Fae Cross, a tough-girl amateur boxer whose fiance is running for congress, has just made a startling discovery about herself. She is half faerie - and not just any faerie, but a tooth faerie! A hybrid of fae and human, Gemma is destined to defend the Olde Way and protect the fae - who are incapable of committing violence - from threats to their peaceful and idyllic way of life, which must be maintained by distilling innocence collected from children''s baby teeth. But when a threat to the fae mission emerges, Gemma is called upon to protect her heritage, and become a legendary fae warrior... even if it means sacrificing everything she knows about being human!

I loved this book. The fae have a job to collect the teeth, hence tooth fairy. Gemma doesn't know she is a half fae. She is a boxer whose boyfriend is running for office. But Gemma is pulled into the fae world. I liked the premise for the book and after Paul's blog on the book decided to download the book. Give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. I can't wait for the next one.
