So, a demon and a hacker walked into a bar...

No, it's not the start of a joke.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a more of a paranormal cozy mystery with enough cursing and smut for me to enjoy it.

I did not like the fact that the book came to an end sort of on a cliff hanger and the epilogue really wasn't an epilogue...I wanted more, to see Samuel+Sara 5 years from now.

I loved that unlike the cliché where the immortal guy makes the chic immortal, Sara showed Samuel the value of one life and be

DISCLAIMER: I got a free advanced copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. No spoilers.

Let me start by saying I absolutely loved Demon in Salem. It's not your usual romance, with a hot demon haunting the house and a woman who has to save him. Both protagonists were likable and relatable, with just enough of baggage to make the story spicy. I liked Sara's independence and Samuel's respect for her. There was a strong chemistry between them, which only built with every page turned. On top

I really enjoyed this paranormal romance! This well-written story with a snarky heroine and a smokin-hot demon kept me sucked in and turning those pages. There was humor, there was magic, and a delicious amount of steam to keep me all tingly and satisfied. The suspense was thrilling and I couldn’t wait to see what happened next.

The teaser of Ash’s book at the end has me very excited to read the next book in the series! *grabby hands*

I loved. I was in the mood for a good paranormal romance and this one had the perfect amount of sweetness, magic and love. Exactly what I needed at the moment. Let's wait for the next one. ...more

This was an okay read

I didn't hate it, but I was also kind of bored with it at times. I really didn't like the damsel in distress trope that she had going on here. It's just so typical of so many romance books that I now find it quite annoying. Sara has had bad luck with men all her life, from the guys she dates to the men she encounters in a professional setting. It just bothers me how men are portrayed as predators that see women as really dumb receptacles for their lust. So, if course, the he

I really enjoyed this new authors book. The characters were funny and easy to relate to. This was a fun read and I can't wait for the next installment. I've read her other books and enjoy them all. I will be following her upcoming books and hope you all enjoy her too! ...more

It shouldn't work, but it does.
Sara is trying to avoid a murderous ex, Samuel is locked in stasis for a couple of hundred years and amuses himself by haunting the house he's entombed in.
She buys the house!
He does the usual poltergeist stuff, she more or less ignores it.
She sets up magic mirrors which let her see him but doesn't let on - then gets drunk one night with a female friend and lets the secret out.
Anything more would be a spoiler.
"Demon in Salem" has a good heart, the main characters ar

I downloaded this book because it was free on Kindle and quite frankly, I wish I hadn't.


The plotline lacked depth.
A few spelling mistakes, but not as much as I thought I'd see.
Poor grammar.
No showing, only telling. This is seriously annoying. The author seriously needs to rewrite this and create more depth and colour. I didn't feel drawn in with this book due to the lack of shoewing.


It only took me a few hours to finish and I know not to read this author ever again until she lear

Supernatural meets modern world. Sexy ghost teases and pesters the new inhabitant. Tension and even laughter from the very first start! Great start of a series.

One independent modern woman plus one centuries-old demon meet in a haunted house. It's a great beach, long ride, or rainy afternoon read. The two follow-ups are good too.

So good

This for me was a must read. Lots of laugh out loud humor in the beginning, romance and mystery. Definitely a page turner
