Got Demon?

Grace does. She’s got more demon than she can saddle. In fact, she’s got a sinfully sexy Crown Prince of Hell named Caspian. She’s also got ten days to get rid of him or Bad Things shall ensue. See, her Russian mobster ex-boyfriend didn’t take kindly to her smutty Mephistophelean contract. It’s not that she’s conspiring with fiends; that was his idea. It’s that s...more

Grace is sick of her creepy ex threatening to take away her son. He’s already stolen the first two years and she is unwilling to let him steal any more. She’s tried the courts, but she’s ready to get down and dirty to give him what he deserves. It’s time to call the Crown Prince of Hell, Caspian. When she summons him, he is so taken with her that he agrees to make her mobster of a boyfriend miserable if she’ll agree to be his – whenever, however, and for as long as it takes to wear the guy down....more

How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days is one of the funniest books I've read in a very long time. Grace has ten days to shake her Russian mobster ex and save her son.So what does Grace do? She summons a demon to do her bidding, and what she gets is not just any demon but Caspian who is not just any old demon but the Prince of Hell. Add in an entire cast that runs the gamut from a dead hooker turned dominatrix demon gunning for his soul to the devil himself and you have a laugh a minute ride. Typically...more

Picked this one up for free during a promotion. Thank god, because if I'd spent money on it, I'd be genuinely grumpy. As it stands, I'm merely bemused.

I managed to make it a page or two into chapter 8. A common thought I had while reading was along the lines of how HARD the author was trying. Total exercise in how the effort to impress the reader with wittiness overrides the story itself. I didn't find it clever, I found it grating in the extreme.

The possibility this was destined for DNF-land h...more

I loved this book. I don't remember the last time I had so much fun while reading. The peanut allergy scene...Priceless!! Hahahaha!!! That alone deserves 5 stars :)

I don't consider myself a very picky reader and am pretty easily satisfied with books, I don't like to leave bad reviews, therefore rarely do because it tends to take a lot for me to all out despise a book. But once in a while a book comes along that is just hair-ripping-out, full-on-migraine-inducing (yes, nausea and everything), what-in-all-creation-was-I-thinking, wish-I-could-unread bad. This is unfortunately one of those books for me. I was expecting something light, humorous, and romantic...more

To start off with: this book was nowhere near what I was expecting. I went into it thinking, ok, we're going to have an evil ex, a demon who either turns out to be less evil than advertised or gets redeemed, and a witch with a vengeance fixation.

I got a whole lot more mobsters, a whole lot more comedy, and a whole lot more eye-rolling. This wouldn't have worked for me if I'd been in the mood for anything remotely serious or believable (mild spoiler: there is a spell used to make marathon sex ses...more

REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED AT BITTEN BY BOOKS REVIEW SITE (http://www.bittenbybooks.com/56688/ho...)

Grace is a woman scorned. Her Russian mobster ex-boyfriend kidnapped her son and has refused to let her see him in four years. A woman can only take so much before she reaches a breaking point, especially when that woman is the granddaughter of one of the most powerful witches to walk this earth. Grandma didn’t raise no fool, so Grace knows exactly what she’s doing when she summons Caspian, one of t...more

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

In a last ditch effort to give her ex-boyfriend, the Russian Mobster the comeuppance he deserves, Grace summons a demon to do her will. Of course she gets much more than she bargains for when Caspian, the Crown Prince of Hell shows up. In their bargaining, Grace had been expecting a price, but she never could have imagined Caspian's demands to be so carnal. But if sleeping with a denizen of hell is bad, falling for one is even worse, and she...more

Ok, so I ALMOST gave up on this book.

Yah I’m ashamed. After the first couple chapters, it didn’t seem at all like the type of book I typically enjoy, and so I went in search of other reviews, hoping to see whether or not the book picked up, or if I was wasting my time.

About 3 chapters in, I’d yet to see the story everyone seemed to be raving about, BUT an eternal optimist, I decided to give it one last shot, and I’ve gotta say, I’m extremely pleased.

About halfway through, I realized, like so m...more

Fun start to what looks to be a great series!

Grace is in need of some demon assistance. For four years she has been battling her ex and she has finally decided to call in the big guns. Those so called guns come in the form of one Crown Prince of Hell, Caspian. Oh yummy, yum-yum. The old adage of tall, dark and handsome totally describes Caspian. Oh, you can also throw in sex-on-a-stick and walking wet dream while you are at it. Revenge comes first and then well maybe she can….oh never m...more

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

The first book in DeWylde’s 10 Days series has all the elements of a great paranormal romance: Strong female protagonist, swoony alpha hero, and lots of red-hot action!

Grace is a witch, whose ex-boyfriend is making her life a living hell. When Grace calls upon the Powers That Be for help, Caspian – the Crown Prince of Hell - respon...more

Never mess with a woman who knows how to summon a demon, and not just any demon either to get revenge on you. Graces scum of the earth boyfriend Michael finds this out the hard way when she summons Caspian, a Crown Prince of Hell to get back at him.

I loved that Grace knew she was summoning a demon and had no regrets about doing it. Caspian won me over on the first page he was on. He and Grace were a great match for one another and their chemistry was sizzling hot. There is a lot of humor in thi...more

“Looks like you’re both demon and angel, my love.”
She smiled up at him. “Just like every other woman that’s ever walked the earth.”

How to Lose A Demon in 10 Days is not your average romance.

Keep in mind that this is an adult book, and there are explicit details!

Grace tiene su vida patas arriba. Su abuela ha muerto recientemente dejándola sola en el mundo, no tiene trabajo y su ex novio mafioso tiene secuestrado a su hijo bajo amenaza de muerte. ¿Qué haría una bruja buena ante semejante tesitura?...pues hacer un pacto con un demonio. El problema es que a su llamada no acude un demonio cualquiera, sino que responde, ni más ni menos que el príncipe heredero al trono infernal, el sexy y descarado Caspian. Por encima...more

A wonderful first novel in a series about the political arena that is Heaven and Hell. Who knew the positions of the Big Boss and the Devil were democratic? Certainly not me. :P This novel, while being a easy PNR has a great story and even better character development. DeWylde's imagination is matched only by her character's whit. Fans of Katie MacAlister and Molly Harper will love this series.
Grace is a powerful witch with ties to both Heaven and Hell. Her grandmother is the BABA YAGA witch, no...more

3 star = pretty good. I finished up the cheapie (2.99 on kindle) How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days,it was not too romancey even though it started with lots of smexy stuff. There is also a whole lotta crass and sass from the leading lady (not quite up to laurenston or lexi george but kind of that idea) and from other reviews I saw either you thought it was funny or trying too hard to be funny. I think I actually felt both ways as certain points in the story.

The first part of the book was more on the...more

What a great story. I was laughing non-stop at some parts of this story. Caspian is such a great character. Grace is a strong willed women seeking revenge on her ex. Together they make an awesome team and they quickly fall in love but are kicking and screaming the entire time. Caspian helps Grace seek her revenge but doesn’t realize that Grace has been set up from the very beginning. He has to fight for her life and realizes she is his Happily Ever After and he is hers. Can a witch and a Crown P...more

This was a free book. I read the reviews...they were all over the place but I read anyway. And I laughed the whole time. perfect for me, i'm a sucker for romantic comedies & that is exactly what I got with Caspien & Grace.
Some complained that the chapters not only told Caspien & Grace's story, but I'm OK with that. The author created characters whose stories I wanted to know & I appreciate I didn't have to find out in...the next book.
Grace is a decendent from a great witch so so...more

This mostly fun & funny supernatural romance (with lots of great wisecracking characters) was exactly what I was in the mood for. The evilness of the villain(s) harshed my mellow a bit, but not enough to keep me from liking it overall.

Great book

I don't know why it took me so long to read this but now that I have I have to read everything. else by this author. A great read with memorable characters.
Amy Softa
The book wasn't awful, but it definitely wasn't great. I would like to give it another half star, but just can't bring myself to give it three stars. It tried to be funny and was in a couple of places, but much of the humor just didn't work for me. It was definitely crass in places and there was a lot of violence against women that was just too heavy for a "light-hearted" romance novel, which is what it felt like this book was trying to be. It was a quick read, but I kept wanting to just give up...more

Plenty of laughs, and likeable characters. Grace summons the demon Caspian to get back at her ex. Her ex (Michael) is a low life gangster like jerk who kills and hurts people for fun while he's trying to become a demon himself. When Caspian curses Michael with demon crabs and then with atomic intestinal issues, you're bound to laugh out loud while reading it. Great twists on who her parents and Grandpa are. During the course of her paying Caspian for his part they start to develop feeling for ea...more

Grace and Caspian have got to be among some of my favorite characters I've read in a long time! Grace with her fierceness and warmth and Caspian with his sex appeal and seductive personality! What started out as just a simple contract with a Demon to get revenge on Grace's Ex who has made her life nothing but hell turns in to a love and lust that can't be denied. Along the way Grace finds out secrets about her past and whether or not it's possible to tame a Demon. I highly recommend this book! I...more

Loved this book! It was fun and exciting!

I read this because I won the sequel on Goodreads. It took me two tries to finish it, but this book was a fairly easy, okay read. The beginning seemed a little slow to me, and it took me a while to get into it (hence the two tries). I did like that even with so many characters, they were relatively easy to keep straight, and the writing was decent. However, I'd hoped that it would be funnier than I thought it was. Probably not one I'll re-read.
Anne
It was funny, but not my cup of tea. I wasn't into the lack of a proper storyline & background stories to the characters. The epilogue skimmed through a wrap up of the story. I would've really have liked to have known what Caspians story was, but it was never mentioned in anything but passing - there was no real communication between Grace & Caspian. I found that weird and a little hard to grasp.

Good writing, but the story needed work.

Jul 06, 2013 Jennavier marked it as didn-t-finish  ·  review of another edition
Really not my kind of story. It works hard for the erotic angle, including having the main character sign a contract with a demon that exchanges sex for help in getting revenge. Ummm.... Prostitution anyone? Any women who usually chooses her own partners should be at least a little uncomfortable with this. Then again, if you don't have sex in the first ten pages then it's not a romance novel so Ms. DeWylde just had to start early.
Shyloh
This book tried to be funny, boy did it fail, it came across more as gross and juvenile.

The way this was advertised, I thought it was going to be like a Katie MacAlister novel, paranormal yes, but also light and funny. It wasn't any of that, I really do not want to read gross details about murdering hookers on one page and on the next the heroine buys dildos.


Putting this author on my no way never again list!

Funny and Yummy
I loved this book. I loved the humor, the hot steamy sex scenes, and the story. Grace is a don’t-mess-with-me heroine and Caspian is a hot please-do-naughty-things-to-me demon.
I found myself rooting for them and hating the baddies. The secondary characters were fun too.
On every page there were several hits of humor that made me laugh. I highly recommend this book.
