Beg me to slay Lisa Kessler
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I love paranormal romance, and for a change this centred around Demons – with the Demons being the bad guys, and not the hero in disguise, the bad boy just needing True Love! Lisa’s Demon’s are real bad guys, kill gruesomely and we can see how devious they are when Gabe makes a deal with one who’s often his source of info. He’s very, very careful to get the deal hammered out tightly, no loopholes. I liked Gabe, real classic hero, born a demon slayer he’s devoted his life to the job forgoing any personal relationships since his fiancée was killed by demons while he was off chasing another one. Then he meets Tegan, and something sensuous pulls them together right from the start although they both try their hardest to avoid it…. Tegan hasn’t had a relationship since being attacked by a demon disguised as a good looking man at a club. She survived the attack, but carries both physical and mental scars from it. She’s learned self protection since then, thinking it was a man that attacked her. She now runs her own dojo, helping others learn how to look after themselves. Its not til she hires Gabe that she learns about Demons. Convinced he’s talking rubbish when he first tells her about them, she gets a sharp awakening when one appears at her home.
I liked Tegan and Gabe, good characters with a simmering sexual tension that they soon gave into, telling each other it was just sex, they didn’t want a relationship – each for their own reasons Hah! Like that ever works 🙂 Anyway the head honcho Demon is out for Tegan, attracted by her blood heritage and Gabe is determined to save her. They get into lots of action, fighting different demons and learning more about each other along the way.
I enjoyed the book, but not as much as Lisa’s Moon series. Somehow the plot felt a bit too light and predictable for me, it’s a good read for a one off but not one I’d re read. If you want something easy to read, with romance and steamy sensuality, a bit of light action and a supernatural slant though, its great. Its a good price too at 188 pages for £1.50
Stars: three and a half.
