There were some good things in this book and some bad. I didn't hate it but I didn't exactly love it either.

Grace is from a line of powerful witches. She's extremely powerful, smart, cunning, and gorgeous to boot. However being a powerful witch isn't always the greatest thing in the world. And even being a powerful witch, you can still meet some crappy dudes and her ex is a doozy. Michael is an abusive, murdering, creep of a man. He's trying to become a demon and on the path to doing that he has completely screwed over Grace. He has weaved magic and convinced Grace that they have a son. A son that he stole from her and has kept from her for years. So in order to get her son back, since nothing else has worked, she summons a demon from hell to help her get her son back. But she definitely bites off more than she can chew.

So Caspien, the demon Grace summons, is super hot. They end up having sex, which is super hot. They didn't fall straight in love with each other which was good for me. They bickered back and forth a lot which I really like. I was actually okay with the portion of the book. They were mostly lighthearted and fun. The humor in most of the book was really offbeat, it wasn't really my style but I didn't mind reading it at all. Sometimes books will have you busting out laughing, this one was mainly just amusing.

The main issue I had with this book was Michael, Graces' ex. Obviously, he's the bad guy and it gets pushed so hard. The book seems lighthearted 95% of the time so the fact that this guy is so violent seems really off balance. He's extremely rough, vicious, and sadistic with the women he interacts with.

I was kind of "meh" with this book. I read it pretty quick. It wasn't a bad book but it wasn't really something that would stick with me either. I haven't decided yet if it just wasn't my taste or if I just didn't care about it one way or another.

  1. It sounds like a para chick lit maybe that's why its meh? I have this and book 2, the blurb sounds fun, very Cosmo. Hopefully the second one is better.

    1. It is very Cosmo. I think it's just me honestly. It's just not my style. But the book was not bad for someone who would be into it.

    1. It never hurts to check them out, right? I'll normally read anything just to try it.

  3. The title is catchy, but I find lighter PNR hit or miss with me because of the balance of humor, romance and the paranormal elements. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
