Demon Hunting in Dixie (Demon Hunting #1)
A warrior, a demon, and the girl next door. . .
Looking For Trouble
Addy Corwin is a florist with an attitude. A bad attitude, or so her mama says, 'cause she's not looking for a man. Mama's wrong. Addy has looked. There's just not much to choose from in Hannah, her small Alabama hometown. Until Brand Dalvahni shows up, a supernaturally sexy, breathtakingly well-built hunk...more
I loved this fun and witty story about, well, not much really, but that's half the fun. There's a plot about demon hunting, but it's not quite the main focus of the book. The book is a witty and fun romp about chasing demons, reanimated dead guys, talking dogs, falling in love, and watching some Dahlvani warriors get intoxicated on chocolate. Trust me, this is one you won't want to miss.
Quick recap: Addy is out jogging with her dog,Dooley...more
Well, it's essentially two really hot guys who are clueless about Earth/American culture who fall in love with two ladies in a small town in the Deep South in Alabama. I can't decide if the story is supposed to be a joke or if it's just plain bad. Think up every cliche you can imagine about the South and it's in here. I think it's supposed to be funny.
It is rather funny to watch the contortions Addy goes through trying to explain Brand...more
Adara is your typical mid-twenties-southern girl who is sc...more
First of all, this author knows her Southern charm and manners. The way the characters act and speak were reminiscent of Southern hospitality. The phrases the characters woul...more
Quick & Dirty: A cute story of a demon hunter from another dimension and a small town southern gal, hunting down demons and dodging the local gossips.
Opening Sentence: Addy glanced up at the rumble of thunder, her pace slowing to a jog.
Hannah, Alabama is a small, quiet southern town where everybody knows everyone else’s secrets. Well, except that Hannah seems to be a hot bed of demon activity. Never the less, Addy Corwin is in for a surprise whe...more
Lexi George’s charming Southern paranormal Demon Hunting in Dixie is an exercise in small town life gone gonzo. Ripe and almost to the point of bursting, George populates her mild mannered hamlet of Hannah, Alabama with all-you-can-eat zany characters and a demon infestation in the works. All of this makes for a boisterous paranormal with a strong romantic theme albeit light in conflict.
The sultry romance that springs up between Dalvahni warrior Brand and Addy is the big draw to Demon...more
And I got that. It was a fun read, the characters were funny, a crazy zany small town in Alabama. Add demons and gorgeous demon hunters and you have some paranormal fun. There were zombies, talking dogs, fae creatures, etc. And maybe that was the problem - there was just a little too much crazy that apparently most everyone but the heroine knew about...more
I LOVE this book. It is so funny. Lexi George has her Southern down pat. I am from the south and it rang so true to me that it made me homesick. The f...more
She was just trying to retrieve her run away dog; she didn’t intend to run into a demon and a ten thousand year old Dalvahni warrior!
This author writes a paranormal romance novel that is outstanding. She creates Addy, a southern girl that knows all the rules for proper behavior and has a mother that thinks she should get married. Ms. George’s style reads a bit like Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. Addy is an independent lady who says...more

Out of 320 pages, 1/4 was semi-erotica (& not even terribly interesting), 1/4 was trying to fit every southern trope you've ever heard into the dialogue, 1/4 was just BAD "comedy", and the remaining 1/4 was divided between the actual plot/story and amusingly bad "so bad it's funny" comedy. That's right - 40 pages tops of storytelling, and it includes the *at most* thimble-full of character development that occurred. M...more
But there is no keeping a poker-face with lines like "Girlfriend had a terminal case of camel toe. Addy could practically read the woman's lips....Mama's genitalia would never betray her in such an uncouth manner. Growing up, Addy was certain Mama was a smoothie, l...more
Randomly, in a small town in the South, demons are appearing (and have been for some time apparently) so two demon hunters from other dimensions come to take care of them. only they look and talk like two ridiculous hot human men. who are completely clueless about the majority of human interaction.
The main character, Addy, was a mix of southern bell and Not. So, a complete contradiction. she falls in love with one of the very manly demon hunters and keeps goi...more
I LOVED the southern fried, raucous and sometimes bawdy humor. The brawls at the funeral home and cemetery had me laughing so hard I was tears.
Brand is the classic, deep brooding serious alpha male and I love how he's clueless when it comes to Adara's humor and little white lies. He busts her every chance he can.
He's also clueless to love...so clueless he's going to get hit hard...and you know what they say...the bigger they are...the harder they fall.
Someone else said that if Janet Evanovich's and Charlaine Harris's books had a baby, this book would be it. While I agree that this book does (in hindsight) remind me of Evanovich, for me, it was missing something that Evanovich has. The scenes that were supposed to be funny weren't always all that funny. I don't know how to explain it. They were funny in a "that's just r...more
I'm not saying this won't appeal to some readers, in fact I'm certain some people will love it. It just didn't do it for me.

Ever Had One of Those Nights? Demon Hunting in Dixie
Okay, Lexi may not have invented paranormal romance or Southern humor, but she has put them together beautifully in DEMON HUNTING IN DIXIE. Think Fannie Flagg mixed with the paranormal naughty level of Charlaine Harris. And without most of the gore.
I like how the novel’s events cause turmoil on both sides of the supernatural divide. Both Brand and Addy are totally changed...more
And now, I'm off to continue reading the next book!
here is one conversation that would be understood by all.
"Mama, what's that man doing to that lady?"
"She's got something stuck in her throat, Little Will. He's trying to get it out."
"With his tongue? Yuck, grown-ups are weird."
"You ever get something caught in your mouth like that, Mama?
"'Course not, Little Will. Don't be silly"
"Then how come I saw Mr. Lucas sticking his tongue in your mouth down at the har...more
