Wow, this one was quick and violent. I love this author and this story was different from what he usually writes. It was a little crazy and erotic and violent. I totally got the Stephen King vibe.

Dark, erotic, insane! It was hard not to hate MC. And the demon I loved.
DNF @10%. My time is worth more than bad, trite writing.

I really can't rate this... so ignore the stars

It wasn't what I expected or the type of book I would ever want to read. I really didn't like it but I can't say it was a bad story. It was actually a good story if you are into a twisted "not really a" romance novel... Also there were so many spelling and grammatical errors, which usually doesn't bother me. There were just to many to overlook.

Described as a black comedy, it is hard to see where the humour is here. The story begins with an extensive background that includes characters that are irrelevant to the plot and add nothing to the understanding of the lead character. The story doesnt really begin until the location has changed. The lead character is not at all likeable. He displays all of the clichéd angst of a hormonally driven teen whilst still remaining a good boy at heart.

The introduction of the demonic character does

Original Post: Review: Crazy In Love: The Story of a Gay Demon by Perie Wolford

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

It's been some time since I'd had the chance to read something from Perie Wolford. I love his sci-fi books and of course, who can not read his Sam Dorsey books. One of those books I remember quite vividly is Encounter. It was a suspense-filled story that gave me a glimpse of just how crazy this author could be when it comes to titillating the imagination.

Crazy In Love, well, it's about a demon

This is book two in the series but can be read or listened to as a standalone. Each book has different characters. This is a short erotic story but not as sweet as the first one. There is a lot of violence in this book and the narrator really brings it out and makes it chilling. The sex is hot too but not as hot as the first book as I think the violence was more predominant here. Now having said that there is a reason for the violence it gives the story a moral and there is also a Happy ending. ...more

This was the most disappionting book I think I've had the misfortune to read. Poor plot, so many grammatical and spelling errors I crindged each time I crossed one. (And they were numerous!) Granted, I'll be the first to admit I have my faults in my reviews, both grammatical and spelling, but I swear any 3rd grader could have written this book with less errors.
The sexual aspect of the story could be confined to about 15 of the 81 pages - another dissapointment. The rest was useless filler that

Don't do it.

Despite so many reviews mentioning how terribly written this book is, I was intrigued by all the "but it has a great story" comments. It really isn't that great of a story. The premise, the style, the grammar, and the editing (or lack thereof) are all of the quality of an essay written by a 15 year old boy making an effort to be "edgy".
tl;dr - this is beyond terrible and not even worth the 99 cents

The story started out peeking my interest but I didn't like it much. However I read it to the end to see how the story concluded. I just feel disappointed for Dale that his first sexual experience was with Demon and it has made him develop self esteem issues. I hope Michael will help him to believe in love again and that he deserves the best.

I didnt like Crazy in Love too much. I felt like there was quite a bit of filler, quite a bit of typos. It also came across as juvenile at times.

I liked the idea. I wanted to like the story itself, but I didnt. I feel like it has potential, though; it could be improved in a lot of ways.

Despite not enjoying it too much, I will check out the authors other books.

"Good novel just not my cup of tea"

Given a free copy for an honest review.It starts out romantic when Dale sees a mysterious boy in the woods. They become romantically involved then Dale's Aunt forbids him in seeing him as she knows he is a demon. It soon turns violent and twisted with Dale nearly killing his Aunt. Quick listen though the narration was bland to my ears.

At the this of being mainstream, but this meme perfectly encapsulated this book. This book had been... erhm... interesting. Is it a good interesting? Well I guess it's depending on your taste. Either way, I can certainly see the Stephen King influence.

The written is a little stiff for my liking, which also undermine some of the effect.
