Book Blurb: With demons the hottest new heroes in the romance category, this is a fantastic debut paranormal.
When beautiful half-succubus Lucy Gregory's antique chest unleashes a Pandora's box of demonic activity in a suburban beauty salon, brooding demon Rafe arrives to run damage control. He's darkly sexy and everything she's avoided-icy and reserved-but that only adds to his mysterious appeal. Being a demon, he knows he should be able to resist Lucy's charms, but his resistance is slipping at the worst moment. And Lucy has no idea of the power she possesses.
My Thoughts: I don't read a lot of paranormal romance anymore. To be honest, it was the name of this book that caught my attention. I have to say, I didn't really get where the title played into the book, but that's okay. This to me was a good paranormal. I was not brought into the world of vampires and werewolves. I was brought into a world of demons and they really didn't come across evil. There were the evil ones of coarse, but then some just seemed to be good. Especially since angels were willing to work with the demons to destroy the evil demons. I found this book to be quite comical and often wondered what these people were thinking. It almost felt like a Janet Evanovich meets paranormal!
The romance in the book is pretty good. I had hoped for a little more between Lucy and Rafe considering she is a succubus demon...aka sex demon. I had expected her urges to be there just a little bit more between her and Rafe. However when the two did meet up, you could see how much the two couldn't resist one another. Rafe was the one fighting his emotions in this book as the last woman he had loved had died because of him.
There were several little twists in this book that made this book good and left you laughing. I think most anyone who enjoys venturing to the world of paranormal is going to really enjoy this one.
