I guess I can't complain too much since this was a kindle freebie but I seem to be in the minority here. The writing seemed very juvenile and I had numerous eye rolling moments.

Yes! But apparently it was a no....



Natalie apparently bartered her soul to a demon in exchange for her mother's life when she was a child. She is currently attending college. She thinks the demon is coming for her on her 21st birthday.

Holy crap you guys, someone must have switched my book for another cuz I most def didn't read the same book as y'all. I read the first chapter in the back of Rock the Heart, which was good, and I liked the whole concept of the book. I then read the next 3 chapters on her website. From reading the first 4 chapters I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. It didn't really pop for me you know. Well then it came out early and I was like yay!! And then I read it I was like boooo!!

So I'm clearly in the minority here, but this book just doesn't do it for me. I admit I was torn between 2 and 3 stars, but while this book isn't as bad as the others I've rated at 2 stars it just didn't do enough for me to give it the 3rd star.

Altogether I'm confused by the marketing for this book in the first place. I came across it as part of the YA group I'm a part of's scavenger hunt, but the description, and frankly the cover, pitch the book as for adults. The YA group is right. This is n

I’m a fan of paranormal to begin with so when Michelle announced she was releasing her new adult paranormal Demon At My Door excited was an understatement; I was happy as the Geico piggy!








I had the honor of being a beta reader and I knew from page one this was going to be a good one. Demon At My Door isn’t your typical paranormal; yes, there’s Demons in it but there’s also secrets, mystery, romance and one helluva love triangle!!!









The story revolves around Natalie Sugarman, who at 5 yrs old makes

See Natalie made a deal with a Demon when she was 5 years old in exchange for her mother's life. Well that exhange will cost her but will it cost her everything? Hmmmmmmm!!!!

I haven’t read a paranormal in a while so to say I was in my element here is an understatement. I really thoroughly enjoyed this story. It had just the right balance for me. I love my hot demons and this one definitely had one of those.

The beginning felt a bit slow but once it took off I was hooked and didn’t put it down until I had finished it. The writing was spot on and the characters and story line intriguing. There were enough twists and turns to keep me guessing and when I thought I had it

I know Michelle Valentine by her fabulous Black Falcon series. So imagine my surprise when she reached out to bloggers for reviews on her paranormal book. Let me tell you, Michelle can a demon just as well as she can a rocker.

Natalie Sugarman knows she's living on borrowed time. After bartering her soul with a little demon boy to save her mother's life, she knows with her approaching twenty-first birthday everything is about to change. What she doesn't understand are the images the little demon

I'm not really sure how I feel about this book...on one hand it was surprisingly well written and well EDITED for an Indy Author. I read a lot of Indy Authors and most have glaring editorial mistakes some where in the book but I honestly don't recall any here. The book itself is a very interesting concept and for the most point well executed. My issue lay in the story line...for instance miss popular cheerleader with the voodoo grandma was a pointless character from the supernatural standpoint. ...more

I loved this so much that I didn't want to reach the last page.
I haven't read a paranormal romance in a while. This story just reminds me of why I love the genre so much. The unexpected can and will happen and I love that! It stretches our imaginations to the limit and this does not disappoint. Demon at My Door was a breath of fresh air and I was sucked in right from the beginning. I will definitely be reading the next book!

It was okay. I just really hope book 2 is better - Personally I prefer the Black Falcon series by this author more but this is a great read for NA readers :)
Lisa {Silverlight} {Paranormal/Urban Fantasy Reviews}

A paranormal read filled with surprises, twist, and a swoonworthy, tattooed, hot mystery!


A deal with a demon, yep that's what the main character in this book deals with. Natalie, at just five years old make a deal after seeing her mother choking on lunch. As the demon comes to take her soul, Natalie bargains with him. Yes, she's all of five, and so is the demon. So they make a deal, her soul for her mothers, when she turns twenty-one. Years past and the little demonic devil is still at it. Steal

Review posted on Hesperia Loves Books

After falling in love with Ms. Valentine’s Black Falcon series, I jumped at the chance I was given, to read this newest book of hers. Demon At My Door was a great introduction for her, into the Paranormal Romance genre. The story concept was unique and refreshing and the character development revealed just enough to keep us turning the pages and wanting more.

Natalie sold her soul when she was 5 years old, to save her mother. After years of psychiatric visit

Amazeballs!!!! That is what my exact thoughts are at this moment. I took a break away from my bad boy rockers and went back to my first love.... Paranormal romance! Reading Demon At My Door by Michelle Valentine was like an old married couple renewing their marriage vows. It reminded me why I fell in love with the paranormal genre to begin with. It has action, suspense, love, oh and ..... Demons!!

At first I was thinking... "Ok, has it been too long since I read a paranormal romance and am having

This was one epic demonic ride. I loveeeeeed this story and I tried to analyze the plot as I go; everywhere I thought this was heading didn't. The end wasn't exactly a cliffhanger but you're still left with major questions so I'm to assume a wonderful second book is in order. Oh mannnnn let me start of Nat. She's an amazing nutcase and I feel for her. She's strong and is just as much a badass as Rick I just can't wait for her to come into her own. Stew's story is AMAZEBALLS...he's gonna be a for ...more

Really enjoyed this book and for some crazy reason I love her little demon boy. How crazy he's waited for hundreds of years and us following her soul to be with her. Man you got to cut a demon some slack. Loved it - Michelle great stuff . Few twists and turn some things I didn't expect which really kept the pages turning.....

Although I enjoyed this book, Nat didn't completly do it for me. There was something about her I can't or won't warm up to. Rick is another matter all together, I adore him. I am, however, looking forward to the next book.

Ever since she told people about the demon she has been treated as a crazy outcast by her family and by people at school. Her friends turned their backs on her and now she lives a very lonely life.

A love story with a demonic twist...

I am not usually into demons...I have not even been reading much paranormal. But seriously, Michelle Valentine totally sucked me in with this one!

Maybe it is because not only is it a thrilling story about demons, but it also has a love story, mystery, suspense, complex characters, and an intriguing plotline. There is a love triangle, college-age angst, and a demon issue. Nat has a pesky little problem since she has been marked by a demon since she was a a chil

Demon at my Door was an interesting book full of twists and turns. Be careful what you say yes to, because your life can be forever changed. Natalie has been trying to live a life of normalcy, but since she gave into that demon boy many years ago, she knows her time is running out.

Poor poor Natalie, is a lonely soul. She is known as the town outcast, and is even snubbed at school because of her known status. Natalie has only a few months left of her natural life, until she fully becomes a Demon
