It’ll be a cold day in Hell before artist Keeffe Blackmon gives up the statue created by her late mother, a world-famous inspirational sculptor. Keeffe's not selling—not even to a man as rich as devil's food cake and handsome as sin—the gorgeous but morally repulsive billionaire Seth McCall. That is, until Keeffe decodes a fiendish contract and discovers she has just one m ...more

Many will be cheering upon the conclusion, and possibly pick up book 3 to see where the characters go from here.

For the most part I really enjoyed this!
The writing captured me, the romance was sweet, and I enjoy the unique lore of the Hade "demons" vs fallen angel demons. The main thing that kind of threw me was the statue thing.

Overall, I'm glad I got my hands on this and plan to go back and read the first in the se

I'm absolutely loving this series! It's so delightfully unique, which is not something I say too often. All I can say is, keep the books coming, Ms. Estridge!!

Full disclosure: I received an ARC free of charge from Romance Rehab/Romance Remedy.

Estridge did a great job crafting complex characters who have intense internal and external problems to solve, while making me fall in love with them. The compounding factor of a demon possessing a human's body, and Estridge's wonderful ability to use that complexity to enhance the tension added underlying drama. Her ability to wind the subplots around each other provide a rich story that left me rooting for the hero and heroine to get together despite the illogical possibility of it. Bring on b ...more

Jeanne Oates Estridge continues her series about demons and their exploits in the human world with this second novel featuring the demon Abbadon, a tech wizard, and a feisty artist, Keefe Blackmon, as they combine their skills to outwit Satan. It doesn't hurt that they also fall in love. Estridge writes with wit and attention to detail (no pun intended!). A reader can't help but be enchanted by these two likeable characters who persevere despite their difficulties in their quest defeat the helli ...more

Spoiler-free review + Disclosure: I was an eARC (advanced reader copy) reader of this book, and I’m in the same RWA chapter as the author. I purchased the paperback as soon as it became available.

The second book in Jeanne Oates Estridge’s “Touched by a Demon” trilogy brings DemSec’s whiz-Hade Abaddon, Demon of Sloth, to the surface. If Bad wants to regain his primo position in Hell as king of technology, he’ll need all his smarts to convince artist Georgia O’Keeffe Blackmon to give him the last

I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Bad, the Demon of Sloth had it good in Hell, until he found himself banished to the maggot pits. As the former supervisor of DemSec—the satanic bureau in charge of outfitting demons for Aboveworld assignments—Bad excelled at creating new technology. Now, Bad pushes a broom around Satan’s throne, reduced to manual labor and an overabundance of ridicule. When Satan allows Bad to perform an Aboveworld assignment, Bad focuses on h

There's a lot of fun stuff in this book! Bad was such a sweet guy. And it's a cool idea that he's a Hade, the people who have always lived in the underworld and continue living their normal lives even after Satan took over so much space. Bad has always tried to do best by his people, so while he's flawed, he has a good heart.

This book still has the same plot construction problems as the first book. The characters spend so much time spinning their wheels until events out of their control force t
The setting definitely sets itself apart from other paranormal romances.

However, Keefe's unwillingness to break out of her dyslexia, her fears and how it's weighing her down throughout the book so far (30%) gets kinda grating.

Imagine living in a rural or suburban area where the town planning is poor and places like libraries are not close by?

It has an interesting premise and setting but I wonder if there are too many things going on to properly focus on the story. The pitting of analogue vs di

Before I tell you why I really enjoyed this book, I have two caveats:
I have not (yet) read Book 1, and I have received an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
No spoilers...
I must start by saying I love the lead character’s name, Georgia O’Keefe Blackmon. As the story begins, “Keefe” is being forced out of her inheritance by her stepmother. I believed this would be an easy conflict and Keefe just has to stay true to her principles and all will be well.
Then I meet Abaddon and I realized

The second book in Jeanne Oates Estridge's Touched by a Demon series, THE DEMON'S IN THE DETAILS, doesn't disappoint. Much like the first book in that Estridge showcases a strong, resilient, independent woman, the second book is an entirely different story with another well-thought out and compelling story line. While we're assured a HEA--this is romance after all--Estridge takes the reader on a wild ride getting to it. Fast-paced, well-written, chock full of interesting details . . . you can't ...more

THE DEMON'S IN THE DETAILS and Estridge does a great job with her details. I want to visit Sedona for myself after reading this book! I couldn't help but root for a nerdy demon to get his happily-ever-after and cheer when Satan and his demon's are outwitted by a human overcoming her fears and no longer believing their lies to feel humiliated about her dyslexia. There are still bad demons in this book and bad humans -- but they're balanced out with good ones and love in different forms. This is n ...more

A big thank you to NetGalley and Jeanne Oates Estridge for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is the 2nd in a series, reads well as a stand alone. I enjoyed this book. It was completely different from anything I have read lately. I loved the geek Bad (demon) and Keeffe. Lilith was a horror of a stepmom! This may not be for everybody, but I say give it a chance and you will enjoy it. It's not a typical paranormal romance by any means. 4 stars ...more

3.5 stars for The Demon's in the Details. The underlying story is interesting. I loved the concept of the four religious sculptures and other artwork of the heroine's mother having mystical powers of good. But this book didn't pack the same punch as Book 1 in the series. The romance was off for me. Demons are supposed to be inherently selfish and single-minded in getting what they want. Abaddon was a bit too nice and sensitive for my liking. That being said, I look forward to Book 3. ...more

Fantastic Read!

Who knew I’d fall so hard for the Demon of Sloth! This was a compelling saga with some terrific twists and heartbreaking conflict. I’m impressed with this author’s attention to detail in building her world of Hell. A ‘must read’ - couldn’t put it down. I intend to buy her third book as soon as it’s released.

What an awesome book! Lots of twists and turns (I kept wondering how Bad and Keeffe were going to work out!). Thoroughly entertaining.
