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

Take number 3 since my computer crashed and ate my review.

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

If Charlaine Harris and Janet Evanvoich could have a child, this book would be it. The beginning is akin to an anvil dropping on your head, but once Adara wakes up at home, wondering how she got there, you'll be laughing all the way through the next 300 pages. The southern dialouge mixes with 1700 historical fiction male driven dialogue will have you squirting soda out your nose if you dare to drink while reading "Demon Hunting in Dixie."

Adara is your typical mid-twenties-southern girl who is sc

First in the Demon Hunter paranormal-romance series.

My Take
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

I have sat here all morning after finishing this book trying to figure out the right words and descriptions to summarize my reading experience of this book. I am finding it difficult to write the review because while there were many things I enjoyed about this book, there were also some things that weren't so great about it.

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
Monty Cupcake
God, this book was annoying. It actually has a good plot & interesting story, the problem is the superfluous and exaggerated descriptions & dialogue. The book goes on and on and on about the whole life stories of every character encountered in the book, even if the character appears only once & never again. It is so very annoying. And there's a blatant overuse of Southern-isms - by that, I mean the author has drenched this book in cliched Southern euphemisms and dialect. It's all too ...more
When I had read a few chapters of Demon Hunting in DIxie I thought I had found a gem. The idea of demons and demon hunters converging in a small town, the other supernatural aspects, the sassy heroine, a talking dog, quirky supporting characters, and a nice mix of antagonists (demons AND a witchy post-high school mean girl) all seemed like it would add up to a new series that would join some of my favorites. I was disappointed to learn that the sassy heroine devolves into a push over. Aside from ...more
Hilarious - with a dash of wickedly wonderful romance - Demon Hunting in Dixie is a book filled with wit & magic. Who knew so much paranormal activity was hidden away in small towns?!
What started out promising quickly became annoying. I can see why Lexi George could be compared to Janet Evanovich BUT, Evanovich can pull off the snark and George cannot. It's too over the top. One or two characters can have an attitude or snark as I already said but every one in the town of Hannah, AL seems to have this characteristic and that just isn't realistic. Not to meantion the book's pretty much about nothing. Just little scenes that are thrown in for no real reason. I find myself skip ...more
Melissa Wehunt
I was a bit hesitant to read this one because it was recommended to me by someone who would generally prefer to read a cozy mystery to a really naughty romance. Whereas I LOVE the super naughty reads. She said it was funnny and I was like, yeah...sure...I'll read this one. And I did. And it was AWESOME!! I LOVED this book. In fact, the first thing I did after reading this was see if there was anything else by her. I couldn't find anything, with the exception of So I Married a Demon Slayer by Kat ...more
While at Authors After Dark 2013 I attended “Are You Smarter Than A Romance Author” sponsored by Dianna Love. While there she introduced Lexi George and asked her to give us a short reading from her book Demon Hunting in Dixie. She had us rolling in the aisles with laughter. I had to purchase and read this book. It was no fluke, this is one hilarious book. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next in the series.

Deep breath. There was a moment that really pissed me off. Let's get that out of the way first. If I wasn't reading this for Bingo, it probably would have been DNF'd.
Brand and Addy (Adara) are the main characters. So, of course, Brand is a walking wet dream. I guess that gives him the excuse to behave in less than desirable ways. Okay, so the first kiss happens very fast, especially (or because of) "The Dalvahni do not experience emotion." The he leaves after an interruption. Comes back when Ad

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.

The Review:

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
Fiendishly Bookish
3.5 Stars

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

Had one of those days when I kind of wanted a grown-up romance book - something for a hot day when you're stuck inside, but you for sure want a HEA.

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
4 1/2 stars. Addy Corwin has lived her entire life in the small Alabama town of Hannah. And nothing ever happens in Hannah, until the night she is attacked by some sort of demon and saved by an out of this world (literally) hunk of demon hunting manhood. So then Addy finds out that Hannah is Demon Central and one demon really has the hots for her.

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

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
In the beginning of the story, you met Addy and her dog Dooley, as they take their nightly run. Her dog breaks loose and runs into a forest that wasn’t there before. She feels like evil is watching her and is attacked by a Djegrali Demon. Then a man appears out of a portal, who brandishes a flaming sword. There are two of the demons and the man, Brand kills one of the creatures. Before the second creature escapes it stabs her with its poisonous claws and she passes out.

Addy Corwin is a southern lady. Well, most of the time! She's a florist with a mother out to nab her a husband. No man has ever interested her more than Brand Dalvahni. Gorgeous, muscular, and dangerous. He saves her from a demon attack and is determined to stick by her side to protect her for when the demon comes back. Not that she minds such a sexy man by her side, but he's a bossy alpha male and fiery Addy doesn't take well to being ordered around. More strange things start happening, and Add ...more
1.5 stars - the 1/2 upgrade is because it was amusing ... some of the time.

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
5 stars for the laughs, snorts and giggles! Thank you, Lexi George!!! I usually keep a straight face while reading on public transport, but this book had me laughing out loud so often I had other passengers staring (and smiling) at me!

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
I'm sorry, but this was just stupid.
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

This book was laugh out loud hilarious.

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 clueless he's going to get hit hard...and you know what they say...the bigger they are...the harder they fall.

I loved this book! I was laughing out loud on the train home, getting some funny looks from people. Addy it out for her daily run when she encounters what she later comes to fin out is a demon, and Brand, a 'man' who is trained to fight said demons. Instead of letting her die he saves her using his own mojo, against his peoples' laws and wackiness insues. The guys are so out of their element, all the townsfolk are just wacky, and of course talking dogs, flying cats, and trees growing in bbq rest ...more
2.5 stars. Only because I finished it. And I only finished it because I absolutely hate not finishing a book once I start it.
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
This was a great book. The humor was something I've not had so much of in a romance book. I mean many of the romance books I read are funny in spots, but this one was loaded with humor. Really though the southern setting was nice too and the silly things the "mama" did was just so gut bustingly funny. The romance part of it between Addy and Brand were super hottie hot!! Also loved the talking dog Dooley and the winged kitty Mr. Fluffy!!! I was very happy with the ending as well...shhh, I won't t ...more
Within the first 15 pages of the book, the main character has seen a guy with a flaming sword kill something ominous that goes through her, she wakes to find him in her room and decides it's a good idea to let this guy kiss her and fondle her. Yea... Just not my type of book. Don't get me wrong, I like reading about fuck fests as much as the next person, but at least those books aren't trying to have a real storyline. This one is trying, but the rest is getting in the way... 50 pages into it, an ...more

This was a fun, funny, and sexy paranormal romance. Addy Corwin is a florist in her small town of Hannah, Alabama. She had no idea that her town was a hotbed of demons and is soon to be the site of a demon apocalypse. When in the woods searching for her wandering dog, she is attacked by a demon. Luckily the demon is being followed by Brand who is a Dalvahni warrior. He saves her by giving her some of his essence and then takes her home.

The two are immediately attracted leading to the spicy love
I got about 130 Pages (30 something percent) into the book and I just couldn't do it anymore. I told myself If I can't get into a book (or am actively disliking the book), by a quarter of the way through I was going to give it up. I'd just rather not waste my free time with something that gives me a headache and brings me very little joy.

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

Blogger Purchase.

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
Ok, so it's a light read and a slightly silly plot (oh and don't forget the graphic sex scenes), but this is the most entertaining read I have had in a long time. Demon Hunting in Dixie is cleverly written, and there wasn't a single page where I didn't laugh out loud at least once. If it is true that laughter is good for your health, then this book is the best medicine out there. I can't wait to dive into the second book!!
