Sleeping with the Entity is a cute, light, and quick read. However, it has many flaws. The characters aren't fully developed, many conversations and situations don't seem realistic, the writing is a bit amateurish in spots, and the world-building was practically non-existent. Still, I somehow managed to enjoy the book, if nothing else, for the simplicity of it all. The idea itself is a bit original, and I always love a story set in my hometown of Chicago.

Daniella was a bit of an obnoxious chara...more

Many reasons contributed to the 4 star rating. One of them is the taste Daniella has. She has watched True Blood and Twilight and listened to Muse while she was baking. I love Muse, True Blood and Twilight so I was a little more warmed into the book after that. It had one or two Twilight jokes (not against the movie, just to tease a character). I could see the similarities between the book and the vampire stories above but it ha...more

DID NOT FINISH.

I don't know... I really hated this book a lot. I tried very, very hard to get past the first few chapters but I just couldn't do it.

The beginning was pretty clever, with the heroine, Daniella, making an offhanded comment about vampires while she's unknowingly in the presence of a vampire. But immediately, I was confused. I didn't know if she was joking around or if this is the kind of world where people kno...more

Sometimes you just need a light funny read. Sometimes you don't. I have to be in one of my moments of doom... Because I clearly could not stand peppy, overbright and silly. Which is the way this book was headed. (Ok, strike that. This is what the first 7 chapters were to me.)

I didn't find the humour funny. A vamp with a vamp cave didn't make me smile. Nor I laughed at the other "puns" nor at Shirley, the pink Vespa with the pink helmet (and the pink fridge and ..you get the idea).

Cat Devon combines cupcakes, vampires, heat and an extra dash of humor for her first paranormal romance, SLEEPING WITH THE ENTITY.

"All the good men are taken," Daniella Delaney said. "The rest are vampires."


Cupcake entrepreneur Daniella didn't know how true her words were when she moved into Vamptown – an area humans simply knew as a quiet district in Chicago. Nick St. George, the head of the local business association, may look alluring with his dangerous good looks, but he is the opposite of r...more

But the local business association is unhappy a new business is moving in, the leader to this charge is Nick St. George. Hoping that she can woo the neighbors with her baked goods, Daniella can’t understand when her cup cakes to slake their appetites...you see all her new neighbors are on a liquid diet with fangs involved.

My Rating: ❤❤❤½
GOOD: The characteristics of a 3 heart book include: interesting characters, a decent storyline, and unique story elements; there was something about the story that I didn’t completely connect with; the book is a solid read.
My Thoughts:

Need a little light-hearted humor, cleverly goofy and cheesy repartee that will make you laugh? Sleeping with the Entity by Cat Devon the first in the new Entity Series, might be the paranormal beach read you’re looking for! When a new Cupcake Bakery owner and an old vampire clash, the parks ignite in more ways than one! Yep, cupcake entrepreneur, who just happens to love the color pink, I kid you not! Daniella Delaney is a little different than your ordinary human, too, she is immune to mind co...more

Possibly one of the worst books I've dredged through in a really long time and I don't say that lightly. I love vampires and the premise intrigued me, but our hero/vampire Nick St. George stayed a one dimensional guy and didn't vary until maybe the last 10-15 pages. Daniella Delaney, the heroine/cupcake maker had potential, then all of the sudden the things she was saying seemed so far out of character. I wanted to scream...and probably did, she became nonsensical, illogical and I wanted her nev...more

2.5 Stars.

I really, really wanted to like this book, and as such regret that I have to give it such a low rating. The synopsis piqued my interest, and as such I requested a copy of it from Netgalley. As such I am providing an honest constructive review as a thanks for that privilege.

The storyline is solid and could have been really good, I don't read a lot of adult paranormal romance, however I liked the look of this so I thought I'd give it a go. Unfortunately, I struggled with several aspects...more

This one is available today. Need to laugh? Like Vampires? Cupcakes? This one is for you!

This is corny, this is cheesy, this was a lot of FUN! Let me give you the thing that pulled this down a rating first, so that I can get to the fun stuff. There are huge info dumps in the first couple chapters. The information could have been integrated in a much more natural manner. I kept thinking that the characters wouldn't be repeating this stuff to each other. They KNOW this stuff already.

Now that that...more

Ok. Thoughts gathered here...why did I not like this book more? I liked the humor, came away with a ridiculous craving for cupcakes with clever names, and overall got a kick out of the storyline. I guess my issue is that so many things seemed forced, with to much effort at BEING clever. (Note to self: cool it on making so many bad puns.). Much of the conversation seemed stilted and failed to flow naturally, transitions between scenes were staccato and sometimes confusing, and for the first time...more

DNF

I picked up the book because it was recommended and I loved the premise, but I had to DNF. The description of the hero, I could not get out of my head. NO matter how much I tried.

I tried, oh I tried, but I could not finish this book.

Silly me for picking this up at the same time I was reading one of my favorite vampire series (the Amazing Night Huntress books by Jeaniene Frost). This book was just unreadable in comparison.

The kitschy details, like calling the vampire's village "Vamptown", and the silly bloodsucking puns just irritated the crap out of me. I didn't find it to be funny, and, to top it off, I felt like the writing was stilted and awkward.

This just didn't wo...more

This book graded my attention on the first paragraph. This books is full of fun, fighting, lust, surprise and love. 5+++ Stars, I would rate it 8, its that good.

Daniella Delaney has came back to Chicago to open up her Heavenly Cupcakes bakery just down the street from her fathers funeral home. She has been fighting a stubborn head strong man that is head of the local business association that does not want her in his area. No matter what she shows him upon meeting him.

extremely cute and fluffy, this had some things that make me nuts, (explaining things through dialogue) - "boy Joe, I am so glad we are immune to the sunlight because of the tattoo you discovered. Yes bob, I am amazing with how I figured out the ink and design combo. Don't tell our rivals what we do." You know, that type of thing that no one in their right mind would talk about but the reader needs to know, so they talk about top secret junk to forward the story.
Otherwise, it is cute. The main h...more
 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
Lighter, funny paranormal romance. I enjoyed it. The fact that the heroine is a cupcake maker definitely helps, since I love them!

Overall rating: 3.5/5.0 stars.

An absolute treat of a book (pun intended)! Had so much fun reading SLEEPING WITH THE ENTITY. It’s packed with laugh out loud humor from the first page read until the last page read. How refreshing to read a novel where the heroine isn’t drop dead gorgeous but still manages to attract the attention of the smoldering sexy vampire.

Daniella is planning on opening a cupcake shop and is trying to get the blessings of Nick, head of the local business association. One little problem, Daniella is human...more

*ARC provided by St. Martin's via Netgalley*

Sleeping with the Entity is a sweet and quick romance between Daniella, a cupcake baker, and Nick St. George, a vampire. What I liked about this story is that it has humor in it, and it is very well-written. As a fast paced story, I thought that their romance wasn't fully developed. From the very beginning Nick is compelled by Daniella mainly because she is the only one that he can't control. Apart from th...more

Everyone who likes vampires classic-style will probably choke on this one. Luckily, I am not a vampire-in-the-classic-mode lover.

If you like your vamps with their own set of rules you might enjoy a romp with the Entity. (And who the Entity is, I've no idea.) After all cupcakes and Chicago how can you miss?

My first problem with this book (not counting the red eyes on the cover) was the description of our hero Nick as being so good looking--like Mick Jagger. Really! Mick Jagger? Give me a break. A...more

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Overall, this was a fun read. If you’re looking for a silly and quick read, I’d recommend this book to you. Now, on to the nitty gritty:

This book had some really great wit and funny moments, but it really felt a bit … rushed? I’m having a hard time putting into words what made me not really fall in love with this series. It wasn’t the title, although it did give me pause to read something with “entity” in the title. I love vampires....more

I was really looking forward to reading this book. The style was likened to two of my favorite authors who write with a lot of love and a smidge of humor, so I was excited to find a new author to add to my list! I think I went in with too much anticipation, because what I read was not at all like I was led to believe.

If you enjoy light hearted and sweet vampire tales than Cat Devon’s Sleeping with the Entity is the book for you! In a market that is over flowing with the dark and dangerous vampire tale that this was a fantastic change of pace. It’s full of steamy romance, and light hearted humor, making this a guilty pleasure summer pick for me.

Review featured on www.books-n-kisses.com

I am sorta on the fence with this book. It has a bunch of potential and I was interested and wanted to know what was going to happen because the story was very different but it was also really unimpressive in a way. The writing is very simplistic and the characters never seem to really have a connection. Nick is very brooding but not in a good way. He is almost rude in this actions to Daniella. And she is a bit irritating.

The thing that I didn’t like most...more

I had high hopes for this book. I’ve read this author’s contemporary alter ego (Cathie Linz) and enjoyed the humor in them, so I was excited to hear that she was writing PNR. Most of the elements in paranormal romance I was hoping to enjoy–original storyline, kooky characters, and an out of the ordinary world–fell flat in this book. I can’t even come up with examples to show you what I mean because 1)I spent the whole time getting upset at the hero’s and heroine’s dumb actions and 2) I kept seei...more

Sleeping With The Entity. Cat Devon

ARC supplied by Netgalley.
Vampires and romance – two of my reading triggers :) so its always good to get them both in one book. Daniella thinks she's like everyone else, just an ordinary human, but what she doesn't know is there are more things around than just humans. She's opening a new cupcake shop and goes round to meet owners of local business starting with the delicious Nick St George. Nick is leader of the local vampire clan and thinks her business will...more

My recap:

Daniella Delaney is determine to open her cupcake shop in one of Chicago's quieter districts. But Nick St. George, head of the local business association, is just as determined to prevent Daniella from opening her shop in his neighborhood.

Because they don't eat cupcakes in Vamptown.

And Nick needs to keep his clan's secrets … well, secret. Or the lives of his vamps will be at risk.

Usually Nick would simply control Daniella's mind and send her on her way. But he discovers that she is myst...more
