Reluctant witch Eden Riley knows that codependent relationships aren't good, especially when you're possessed by a sexy but troublemaking demon.

And when her

Good ending to a trilogy. It wasn't my favorite of the books, but was definitely satisfying for an ending. Glad I read the series because I love the author.

Loved it. For some weird reason I'm becoming very fond of this series. I'm getting extremely attached to the characters. They are just too funny not to.

I never imagined a woman and a demon sharing a body could make such an interesting story but they really made it. I just can't help to love them. While the fist 2 books were pretty funny and enjoyable, this one got a pace increase and I LOVED it! so many life-changing facts were discovered and lots of paths were forever changed. I just know thing

A great conclusion to a great trilogy, though I am quite sad that it only lasted three books, but that's okay because it fit just right. In this one Darrak and Eden have to come to terms with how they truly feel for each other, because if they don't it just might cost them their lives.

It's always sad to see a great story end, especially when you get so involved in the story and the characters themselves, it's just so bittersweet to turn that last page knowing that you've just completed the seri

A good conclusion to the series.
I liked the depiction of Lucifer as a flawed, fallen angel, longing for his former home, rather than that of a soulless beast, although he carried that darkness inside him as we'll. Guess he acted true to his name in the end...

As for Eden and Darrak: All the secrets they kept from each other made me want to smack them in the head, but at least they got their act together in the end. Eden's little threat to take Darrak with her when her time came, was cute. And the

disappointing. i knew there would be a happy ending, that i didnt have a problem with. it was that ***************SPOILER ALERT*************

Lucifer decided to be good? i mean really, prince of hell, of darkness of all things evil does the heroes a favor, come on. BOOOOO to this author for not having a better ending idea.

A wonderful way to end the series! Darrak & Eden outsmarted Lucas at his own game...Ben redeeming himself in the end. I was hoping for more interaction with Eden's Dad Daniel but was not lucky enough. All in all it was an enjoyable read.
Ah, the conclusion to the Living in Eden series. I didn’t realize this was going to be a trilogy, so that was a bit of a surprise, but it was a welcome one. I love that the author didn’t draw it out too long. I’m sorry to say goodbye to Eden and Darrak, but I’d much rather end on a high note, still wanting more, than have the series drag on forever.

This has been a really fun series. If you haven’t read the two previous books, I don’t recommend you start here. It doesn’t stand on its own very we

“I don't think he can hurt. Wizards and witches go hand in hand, after all. Didn't you read Harry Potter?"
Eden stared at him. "Well, yeah."
"I didn't read the books," he continued. "But I did get to see the movies. A previous host was a fan. He even wore dress robes and pretended he'd been sorted into a house. Hufflepuff, if you can believe it. Who liked Hufflepuff best? I mean, seriously.”
