GOT DEMON?

Grace does. She's got more demon than she can saddle. In fact, she's got a sinfully sexy Crown Prince of Hell named Caspian. She's also got ten days to get rid of him or Bad Things shall ensue. See, her Russian mobster ex-boyfriend didn't take kindly to her smutty Mephistophelean contract. It's not that she's conspiring with fiends; that was his idea. It's that s

Grace is sick of her creepy ex threatening to take away her son. He’s already stolen the first two years and she is unwilling to let him steal any more. She’s tried the courts, but she’s ready to get down and dirty to give him what he deserves. It’s time to call the Crown Prince of Hell, Caspian. When she summons him, he is so taken with her that he agrees to make her mobster of a boyfriend miserable if she’ll agree to be his – whenever, however, and for as long as it takes to wear the guy down. ...more

How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days is one of the funniest books I've read in a very long time. Grace has ten days to shake her Russian mobster ex and save her son.So what does Grace do? She summons a demon to do her bidding, and what she gets is not just any demon but Caspian who is not just any old demon but the Prince of Hell. Add in an entire cast that runs the gamut from a dead hooker turned dominatrix demon gunning for his soul to the devil himself and you have a laugh a minute ride. Typically ...more

Picked this one up for free during a promotion. Thank god, because if I'd spent money on it, I'd be genuinely grumpy. As it stands, I'm merely bemused.

I managed to make it a page or two into chapter 8. A common thought I had while reading was along the lines of how HARD the author was trying. Total exercise in how the effort to impress the reader with wittiness overrides the story itself. I didn't find it clever, I found it grating in the extreme.

The possibility this was destined for DNF-land h

I don't consider myself a very picky reader and am pretty easily satisfied with books, I don't like to leave bad reviews, therefore rarely do because it tends to take a lot for me to all out despise a book. But once in a while a book comes along that is just hair-ripping-out, full-on-migraine-inducing (yes, nausea and everything), what-in-all-creation-was-I-thinking, wish-I-could-unread bad. This is unfortunately one of those books for me. I was expecting something light, humorous, and romantic ...more

Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.

Grace, the witch, summons Caspian, Crown Prince of Hell, in order to have him destroy her ex-lover and get her son back.

There’s a lot to love about this witch-summons-demon story, but then there’s a lot that’s just meh. The steamy hotness between Grace and Caspian is fan-at-high-speed worthy. There’s humor, interesting characters, decent writing, and an intriguing sub-plot involving Grace’s grandma. However, the villains are on the ridiculous

3 star = pretty good. I finished up the cheapie (2.99 on kindle) How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days,it was not too romancey even though it started with lots of smexy stuff. There is also a whole lotta crass and sass from the leading lady (not quite up to laurenston or lexi george but kind of that idea) and from other reviews I saw either you thought it was funny or trying too hard to be funny. I think I actually felt both ways as certain points in the story.

Grace's Russian mob boss ex takes her son from her, when all of the legal avenues are exhausted she summons a demon. It's not that weird since her ex also has his own demon that he summoned. Grace summoned a prince of hell and for payment he demands sex with her. Ok so far this is fine...then it just drops off irreparably. There might be some spoilers but considering I didn't finish it they probably won't be so bad...

It all starts when her ex's goons show up because they inexplicably know that s

the sex was written well?? and the dynamic between the love interests was entertaining. caspian was fine!! when he wasn’t being weirdly horny. micheal sucked so seeing him suffer was fun!!! and grace was wonderful one second and horrifically annoying and dumb in the next which was very frustrating. the “baba yaga” and “granddaughter of hades” subplot was so unnecessary. the plot was just. hm. not great. but i cant judge it too much since this book was just written for the smut (obviously

Fun start to what looks to be a great series!

Grace is in need of some demon assistance. For four years she has been battling her ex and she has finally decided to call in the big guns. Those so called guns come in the form of one Crown Prince of Hell, Caspian. Oh yummy, yum-yum. The old adage of tall, dark and handsome totally describes Caspian. Oh, you can also throw in sex-on-a-stick and walking wet dream while you are at it. Revenge comes first and then well maybe she can….oh never m

REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED AT BITTEN BY BOOKS REVIEW SITE (http://www.bittenbybooks.com/56688/ho...)

Grace is a woman scorned. Her Russian mobster ex-boyfriend kidnapped her son and has refused to let her see him in four years. A woman can only take so much before she reaches a breaking point, especially when that woman is the granddaughter of one of the most powerful witches to walk this earth. Grandma didn’t raise no fool, so Grace knows exactly what she’s doing when she summons Caspian, one of t

Ok, so I ALMOST gave up on this book.

Yah I’m ashamed. After the first couple chapters, it didn’t seem at all like the type of book I typically enjoy, and so I went in search of other reviews, hoping to see whether or not the book picked up, or if I was wasting my time.

About 3 chapters in, I’d yet to see the story everyone seemed to be raving about, BUT an eternal optimist, I decided to give it one last shot, and I’ve gotta say, I’m extremely pleased.

About halfway through, I realized, like so m

I'm kind of at a loss for words on this one. I liked it, but I also felt like something was missing and the ending sort of gave me a whiplash kind of feel. The book reminded me a bit of the Welcome to Hell Series by Eve Langlais with the way DeWylde personifies both the Devil and the demonic characters presented in the story. Honestly if you like that series you'll probably really enjoy this book. Oddly though the ending was straight out of Clue the movie. Not as in a word for word copy or anyth ...more

Never mess with a woman who knows how to summon a demon, and not just any demon either to get revenge on you. Graces scum of the earth boyfriend Michael finds this out the hard way when she summons Caspian, a Crown Prince of Hell to get back at him.

I loved that Grace knew she was summoning a demon and had no regrets about doing it. Caspian won me over on the first page he was on. He and Grace were a great match for one another and their chemistry was sizzling hot. There is a lot of humor in thi

Meet Grace, a witch who is seeking revenge. Enter Caspian, a Crown Prince of Hell. A deal is struck, the terms a bit unusual, and the story begins.

A deal with a demon, what could possibly go wrong? So very many things…

How about when the demon is summoned he is a bit of pompous ass, who is supremely good looking?

“Demon! Hello? Up here.” She crossed her arms over her chest. “They can’t talk.” “I know. That’s part of the appeal.”

I received a copy of this book from Kensington for an honest review. Grace called upon a demon to help her with her ex. What she got was Caspian a crowned prince of hell. He is bound to help her with her problems but he wants something in return. He wants Grace. Grace fights her feelings for Caspian and has to think of ways to send him back. Her ex gives her 10 days to get rid of him or her nightmare will become true. She has to decide between the demon she is falling for or the thing s

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

The first book in DeWylde’s 10 Days series has all the elements of a great paranormal romance: Strong female protagonist, swoony alpha hero, and lots of red-hot action!

Grace is a witch, whose ex-boyfriend is making her life a living hell. When Grace calls upon the Powers That Be for help, Caspian – the Crown Prince of Hell - respon

“Looks like you’re both demon and angel, my love.”
She smiled up at him. “Just like every other woman that’s ever walked the earth.”

How to Lose A Demon in 10 Days is not your average romance.

Keep in mind that this is an adult book, and there are explicit details!

A wonderful first novel in a series about the political arena that is Heaven and Hell. Who knew the positions of the Big Boss and the Devil were democratic? Certainly not me. :P This novel, while being a easy PNR has a great story and even better character development. DeWylde's imagination is matched only by her character's whit. Fans of Katie MacAlister and Molly Harper will love this series.

Multiple points of view made this book hard for me to get into. Our male and female MCs and grandma and grandpa and friends.... Our main character Grace had snark but it was more unlikeble than endearing. I get tired of perfect shaped characters with amazing racks. I think there was more in this book about her body than Caspian's appearance. Why did they fall in love? Is there anything beyond their perfect skins that they wear? I felt that these questions remained unanswered. This seemed as if i ...more
