Plot:

Luck hasn't really been in the cards for skeptical part-time psychic Eden Riley lately. So, it's no surprise when her sketchy psychic ability actually works to reveal a serial killer, only to have everything go wrong in a flash. And suddenly, she has a whole new set of worries in the form of Darrak, a demon that has now taken up residence within her. As the two work towards the common goal of freeing him from his 300-year-old curse, they both will have their work cut out for them as they attempt to deny the growing attraction between them.

Characters:

Eden Riley is a woman whose had a few hard knocks in her life and is just trying to make ends meet. She doesn't have a lot of confidence in herself or her abilities, but as the book progresses, she starts to develop a strength of character that is very admirable.

Darrak is a demon that appears to be quite friendly and helpful. He's had to possess numerous bodies over the centuries in order to survive and has slowly developed human qualities that he would have scorned in his former existence.

World-Building:

The world that Eden lives in seems normal enough. But after being possess by a demon, she comes to realize that there's a whole lot more to her world than she ever realized. As the story progresses, she begins to learn more and more about what's really out there. And it slowly occurs to her that demons may not be the most dangerous thing she has to worry about.

Overall Impression:

This was a really enjoyable book to read. It was more of a relaxing read for me and I absolutely loved the interactions between Eden and Darrak, especially when he was inside her head. Made for some very humorous situations! There were some steamy moments between the two of them but those moments were expertly woven into the story and never felt forced or unrealistic. It would have been awesome to have seen into Darrak's head and what he was thinking at times, as he really is an intriguing character (not to mention a complete hottie). So, for anyone looking for an adult paranormal romance read, check this book out...it's definitely escape-worthy!
