The third (and so far final) story about Lars and Rael revealed some more detail about the demon world, Rael’s somewhat frightening mother, and had another mystery that needed solving. The little Wishes pills and what they ultimately turned out to be added a level of humor to the proceedings that I really liked.

Rael continues to try to get used to living ‘topside’. He desperately wants to please his lover, and one of the ways he thinks he can help gets him into a whole lot of trouble. He is very

Maybe I'm just not in the mood or I'm getting harsher with M/M genre these days, but I found this one lacking of everything I love from the two previous books. The humor, the cuteness, they all seem to be lacking. I don't smile once -- I don't find the mystery as intriguing at all. I don't feel there is enough Lars and Rael's interaction. There is one big life event turnout for Chele (Lars' partner); but she has never been my main reason to read this book.

Clever ending there. Now I have to go straight into the next book. (it's not a cliff hanger, it's just a new plot thread)

Love this series, it keeps getting cuter and funnier! Now I just wish it would get longer!
I want to know what happens with C and Shax!

Review posted at The Armchair Reader.

I have had so much fun reviewing the first two stories of this series. I reviewed them at BER and was a bit sad when this was over the word limit there. So, I waited until I had a blog of my own to review it and I almost didn't want to read it because I love these guys so much -- they're SO much fun -- and I didn't want to read the last story in their adventures.

A Wish Too Far

By J. L. Merrow

We are back with the group from the Paranormal Enforcement Agency, Lars and Rael are still keeping it hot and heavy and Rochelle is still picking on Lars about his illegal little succubus.

We know from the previous books in this series that Rael loves to cook; now he has a national chef with a show that wants to do an episode that showcases him and his pastries. The producer leaves Rael with a slip a paper with his number on it that only says ‘call me.’ Now, with Rael

Detective Lars Thornsson and his job mate Rochelle have a messy case: somebody is selling a new drug which grants wishes to the people who take it… albeit in a very twisted way. Having to work with two bullish and incompetent colleagues is bad, but things get worse when Rael, Lars’ demon lover, follows his instincts and tries to help… Only to get arrested by dumb and dumber. The icing on this absurd cake is Rochelle’s very expected and magical pregnancy…
Another instalment of this funny series: I

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne.

She writes across genres, with a preference for contempora
