THis book was pretty well written. At first I wasn't particularly invested, and that next thing I know I'm all choked up!

Ashemnon „Ash“ is a demon and his one and only objective is to take souls. He relishes in the terror he inflicts on people, showing no mercy or compassion. To save himself from certain death, Gatlin, a drug addict and all around pitiful human being must sell his daughter’s soul - a daughter he didn't know he had - to Ash. He signs the contract being presented to him and his life is spared. Twenty-seven years later Ash has come to collect what’s rightfully his. No meddling angel can stop him. The ...more

Another great book by Cherrie Lynn. Her theme of bad boy/good girl is getting a bit redundant, but maybe that's because I read all her books close together. I must say, I knew that going in but that didn't really stop me from loving this book! Another hit by Cherrie Lynn. She is on my auto-buy list.

I liked the idea and the concept and the story went well for a while then it kind of went down hill.

I'm never quite sure how I feel about these 'the love of a good woman/man can redeem a demon soul'. This was a good book but I'm still a touch undecided.

Ash was magnificently intense. (Yes please!)

Madeleine was... Well she'd been having strange things happening to her all her life but still stayed strong (well that's the point of the story!) but I'm wondering if she came across as unbelieveably balanced. Not that I wanted her to be a raving lunatic but the balance didn't seem true. Then again,

I'm not much for the whole angel/demon kind of thing, but I LOVE Cherrie Lynn. Rock Me and Leave Me Breathless are up there as all time favs. I did like this book, even though it's not my typical read. I felt the characters pains and insecurities and hopes and their desire...oh, the desire...her ability to convey want is really something.

Not as good as Sweet Disgrace, but definitely as captivating.

The love story between a demon and a mortal is well written despite the short lengh and the paranormal aspects are well developed.

As usual, Cherrie Lynn writtes sex scenes really well and here is no different. Ash and Maddy's story is gripping and it is a nice surprise to see an appearance of Celest & Damael who come to their help.

This was fun. I think I'm becoming a much bigger fan of Cherrie Lynn than I would have thought.
A totally sweet story about a demon on his way to redemption... through love. Their faceoff in hell was a nice twist. I would love to read the continuation of their story at some point.

Eleventy billion stars!

Cherrie Lynn has been a top favorite author of mine since I first read Rock Me well over a year ago. I'm not sure how I overlooked this book in all that time, but I am so glad I came across it yesterday. That's right. I found this book only yesterday and immediately devoured it. It was incredible. I absofreakinglutely LOVED it! Lynn did such an awesome job creating a world of angels and demons and, to be honest, that theme has never really appealed to me but she broke thr

Love it. Story features a demon that falls in love with his human prize. Light reading. Nothing too hot and heavy. Very entertaining.

Didn't really like the ending though - too abrupt. It'll be great if there's a third instalment. Maybe one that features an angel and a human instead? I vote for Riam's story.

It was a quick read, but not as good as other Cherrie Lynn books I've read. I would suggest picking up Unleashed & Rock Me (a personal fave) instead.

Cherrie Lynn has been a CPS caseworker and a juvenile probation officer, but now that she has come to her senses, she writes contemporary and paranormal romance on the steamy side. It's *much* more fun. She's also an unabashed rock music enthusiast, and loves letting her passion for romance and metal collide on the page.

When she's not writing, you can find her reading, listening to music or playin
