I was feeling a bit stressed due to some doggy aging issues happening in my house, so I decided to head back to Hannah, Alabama for a serving of Lexi George's zany southern colloquialisms and over-the-top southern stereotypes. Of course I can't forget the skeazy demons and yummalicious demon hunters which are congregating in this podunk town full of unique and endearingly hilarious characters.

I have mixed feelings about the Demon Hunting series. I absolutely love the world building and scene setting in this series and in this book. Lexi George's individual take on demon hunting and the various paranormal creatures that live in this world is unique and engaging. The characters are quirky and amusing, and I love the setting of a small southern town overrun by demons. The heroine of this particular book, Evie, is an interesting character for whom it is easy to feel sympathy. But I have ...more

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I finished Demon Hunting In The Deep South and loved it, while it was not quite as hilarious as Demon Hunting In Dixie it may have been a better book as far as plot. I give both of them 4.5 Stars and the first book maybe higher since it caught me by surprise and had me almost rolling in the floor laughing. This book would have been better if we had more of the dog who I loved when referring to the vet as "the House of Pain" .

Fans of Kerrelyn Sparks and Molly Harper will devour Demon Hunting in the Deep South.
It had everything I love in a paranormal romance plus fantastic comedic relief.

Evie's character has had it rough. Mother died young, dad turned into a drunk, kids making fun of her weight through school and beyond; you'd be right in assuming she doesn't have the greatest self esteem. Now, don't get the wrong idea, she's not simpering in a dark room wailing about her life, but she's not having a great time either
3.5- Chaos, but fun- I wanted some good old Southern fun, nothing too serious and this was it. It was filled with crazy overblown Southern colloquialisms and overblown typecasts. Then to fracture the pacing there is the Demon Hunters use of formal or archaic language.( I had to stop and look-up a couple of words.) Reading this story was like being in a crazy tornado. There was so much going on and some many side players and they were all unique/weird.(Freaky) I went through such a gamut of feeli ...more

This book was a fun urban fantasy - rural fantasy? - and paranormal romance. Evie Douglass is used to staying under the radar and being dissed by socialite Meredith Starr Peterson. But, when she finds Meredith's body in her office, things start to change. It looks like Evie is being framed for the crime and it is up to her and her Dahlvahni lover Ansgar to save her.

Apparently, in the first book of this series, Evie and Ansgar had a relationship but when Ansgar was forced to shoot her to get a de

Did not enjoy this nearly as much as the first book in the series. Still had the same quirky characters and I loved my brief glimpses of Addy & Brand and Dooley and Mr Fluffy (from the first book) as these characters were strong, funny and jump off the page. Evie and Blondy (we are going with Addy's name as I can't remember how to spell the hero's name) were fine as support characters in the first book but neither one was interesting enough for their own story.

This is the second book in the Demon Hunting series which is set in the little town of Hannah where all sorts of strange things happen and the townsfolk are all hilarious and a little bit nuts.
Meet Evie a very shy woman who wouldn't say boo to a ghost she has caught the eye of very sexy demon hunter, Ansgar.
When Evie is charged with murder she did not commit she must find out who did the deed while dealing with her feelings for Ansgar and trying to build her confidence up.

Demon Hunting in the Deep South by Lexi George is an amazingly excellent read! Ms. George knows how to combine sassy southern humor, sizzling sensuality, paranormal intrigue and suspense into one intoxicating ball of storytelling bliss!

I had the pleasure of reading the first book in the Demon Hunting series titled Demon Hunting in Dixie and absolutely loved it. In that first story, readers lea
The premise is great, the characters interesting, the story keeps you going but .. although I went into this knowing it was humourous, sometimes I found it a bit too light. After reading the 1st book in the series I couldn't wait to get into the 2nd. Ansgar is just so serious and determined to stay away from the madness that affected Brand, you know he's going to fail but it's fun reading about his interactions with Evie. & I loved how Evie came out of her shell. Meredith is one of the most ...more

Demon Hunting in the Deep South is one of those books I find it extremely hard to review from time to time. For different reasons in most cases, but difficult nonetheless. And it's so hard for my to rate and review this one because even though I knew that it was part of a series, I was under the impression that it could be read as a stand alone just as well. But that, was a mistake.

Oh boy! What can I say about this book? It's fast, it's fun and it's funny!! I have no idea where Lexi George gets her humor but my hope is to one day meet her so i can find out what she's like in person. This book is loaded with sassy southern-isms. Some i have to admit i didn't fully get at first but that might be because I'm a northerner. The Demon hunters who are called the Dalvahni are hot sexy warrior men thousands of years old. They can't get drunk of liquor but crazy stupid on chocolate.

This was a pretty interesting read for me. I’m from the south and found a certain familiarity with the sayings used in the book, as they are truly southern sayings! Things like bless your heart, son of a biscuit eater, and crappydoodle all remind me of home and they appear all over this book! It was awesome.

I also really liked how Ansgar and Brand (the demon hunters) spoke with a different cadence and structure. It really l

Even more fun than the last book.

In book one, Demon Hunting in Dixie, we are introduced to the shy and shapely Evangeline Douglass and the Dalvahni warrior, Ansgar. We watched the attraction between these two characters developing in the background of the first story and we also watched the shy Evie blossom into a confident woman. But circumstances at the end of DHiD, leave Evie with a case of memory loss. Since fraternizing with humans is unacceptable, our very by-the-book warrior, Ansgar, know

Warning: This is one of those books that keep you reading while you should be helping your kids with their homework, working, finding out what the new puppy is destroying, or listening to your husband talking about...something. Too bad! Because this is one of the funniest, wackiest and most romantic books I have read in a very long time. Lexi George has one of the strongest, and clearest voices writing today. Her writing is chock full of laugh-out-loud expressions and turns of phrase that add su ...more

I seem to be doing this a lot lately but I read DEMON HUNTING IN THE DEEP SOUTH before realizing it was the second book of the Demon Hunting series. Honestly I had no clue, there were some instances where characters refereed to some stuff that might have happened in a previous installment but I was never lost and felt the the story as a stand alone was good.

I received an ARC of Lexi’s George’s new paranormal romance via NetGalley. Demon Hunting in the Deep South was a lot of fun and it will have a lot of appeal for fans of the Sookie Stackhouse series. It should also be noted that this book is the second in a series, which I was not aware of when I requested it on NetGalley – I really wished I had read the first one, as I very much felt that I had missed important details necessary for Deep South.

I didn't quite enjoy this book as much as the first one...which I absolutely adored...but it was still a really good read. Plus, it seems like it was setting up the third book, which I would bet would feature the new Sheriff in town (fingers crossed...). And I'm super excited about that prospect.

I can't really blame the author because this book featured the less brassy friend, maybe that's why it just wasn't as spunky and funny. Also, there wasn't as much animal props given in this bo

Although this couple "got together" in the first book, Demon Hunting in Dixie, Evie, the heroine doesn't remember Ansgar, the Hero. In order to save her from a body stealing demon, he had to shoot Evie with a "magical" arrow and bring her back from the dead. Ansgar, thinking that Evie would be better off without him, erases himself from her memory. Although she doesn't remember Ansgar, she has an overwhelming feeling that she is missing something in her life.

Evie has always been everyone else's doormat. She's sweet and never has a mean thing to say even about those that are cruel to her. Then Ansgar comes to town. A demon hunting hottie and way out of her league. He thinks otherwise and is determined to show her that she's a beautiful and strong woman. Evie must battle her emotions and deal with the fact everyone in town thinks she killed someone. Except something much bigger is going on than a jealous wife haunting Evie.

Evie is a shy and self-conscious heroine who has been ridiculed by the "cool kids" since the 7th grade for being "fat." Those kids have grown up and are still ridiculing her, especially Meredith. Until Evie goes to work and finds Meredith gruesomely murdered in her office. And Evie is framed for it.

But Evie has a protector and advocate whom she doesn't know about. She doesn't remember him, and he remains invisible as he watches over her. Ansgar is a demon-hunter, a Dalvahni warrior with whom she

I would like to first state that I jumped in without reading book one. Though I had no problem following the book and falling in love with the characters, I will be going back and reading book one. Mainly because I have to read Addy's story since I think she is my kinda heroine, but also because I believe you get insight on Evie and Ansgar's beginning.

Evie happened to show up at her office and find the nemesis, that made her life hell by picking on her, murdered. Not only that, but t

This was a 4-1/2* read for me and a bit better than the first book. I loved Evie who was quite the underdog heroine, full of self-doubt and insecurities. The woman who under-valued herself came into her own without losing her sweetness, good-nature, and vulnerability. While Ansgar, the H was likable, he was somewhat unremarkable to me. I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe he was too similar to Brand (the H in the first book).

The humor was hilarious with all the usual crazy talk, antics, and
