Twisted Luck, Mia Downing
Genre: Romance, General fiction (adult)
This sounded fun, and there were odd moments that made me smile but overall its not a book I particularly enjoyed. Its not a bad book, just not a great one either for me.
Its starts well, and I was feeling for poor Olivia, she really had endured the post appalling string of bad luck. Yet even though I felt sorry for her I just couldn’t seem to like her, or her mum.
They were just so kind, loving, perfect it gave my teeth that shiver that over-sweet drinks do. Weird isn’t it to dislike someone for being too nice. It wasn’t quite that though, more that they both just felt unreal, too good to be true.
Then along comes Leo, and of course I know he’s a demon, but Olivia doesn’t. Before she knows it her soul is sold.
Leo may be tall dark and handsome but…he’s a jerk, a selfish jerk. Even when Olivia is working on him and we get a glimpse of the person under the demon, his jerk behaviour always comes through.
I just found it hard to like him, hard to believe Olivia was having feelings for him.
There’s some real surprises at the end, turnarounds I wasn’t expecting that were good, but overall this was just an ok read for me, not one I’d read again.
Stars:Three, an ok read for me, will be a hit for others of course.
