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

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

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

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 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

I was first introduced to this series when I picked up book two and read it. What really drew me to this series is the witty humor and sex appeal between the male and female leads.

I rated Sleeping with the Entity by Cat Devon with just two stars, since as an paranormal romance novel it was ok but not good, but if it really is meant to be as a parody to all ever written vampire books and movies and TV shows, as it seemed to me, then I would have rated it with four stars :).

So it was an hairsplittingly politically correct, with constantly apologizing for every ambiguity while constantly making intended puns, paranormal romance novel, where the protagonists are vampires and

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

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

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.

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

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.

I bought this vampire book because of a cover quote promising "hot and fresh" and I'm always looking for a new vamp series. Okay so most of the heat came from the ovens the cupcake baker was using. I liked the yummy descriptions of those cupcake flavors. Not good for my diet but entertaining. The vamp was hot but we had to wait for a loooong time for that to transfer to the bedroom. Then there were a few convenient things that happened to make the story jell at the end. I enjoyed the book overal ...more

Sleeping with the Entity is the first novel in the Entity series from author Cat Devon and is set in Vamptown, a district in Chicago that is home to a number of vampires who keep their identity secret from humans nearby. Daniella Delaney's appearance in the area could call attention to Vamptown and that's simply something Nick St. George cannot allow. With his mind control not working on her, Nick is curious as to what makes Daniella immune. S

Well, huh. There were parts that were funny/amusing (like the blood supply coming from the funeral home) and not (all the damn Twilight references). I kinda/somewhat liked Daniella; however, she talked way too much and did act stupidly at times. Nick was a jerk at times.
I was thinking about a 3* rating and then this happened: "If you don't have sex with me, you're doing to die." How romantic! No need to worry, the sex was orgasmic. Whatever.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
