Melanie Thanks Hbeebti! Yeah, I'm hoping Torin gets a book soon - poor guy! Showalter's got her work cut out for her with that particular Lord ;D

Angela Good review and I agree with your points. GS has me looking forward to where she is taking the story arc. There are so many possibilties.

Amy Actually, in all of Gena's books, she never explains why the women are a match for the men. They just are. Just like in real life, why someone is a good match for someone isn't always explained in black and white. Love isn't something that can be defined. I agreed with all of your 'likes', but have to kindly disagree with your dislike. Awesome review.

Melanie Well we all have our own opinions. I really do think that given Paris' demon's "special" requirement an explanation is needed for why Sienna is so unique to him. The other guys didn't have a demon that prevented them (in theory) from being faithful to a one and only, hence an explanation as to the "why" for their women wasn't paramount to their stories.
The book kept referring to the demon as Sex, but he's not just sex, he's Promiscuity and by definition is not faithful - can't be faithful even - yet now Paris and Promiscuity "react" repeatedly Sienna. Showalter herself tried to come up with a reason for Sienna+Paris... Unfortunately, I think the reason she provided was weak - most women (and people in general) have multi-faceted personalities - and Sienna certainly didn't come across as unusually so. IMHO this book would have been a whole lot stronger if GS had of nailed down a more convincing explanation....
