Romancing the Dark Side Review:

An emotional journey that will keep you on the edge of your seat with anticipation!

The Demon Kiss picks up right where The Trouble With Spells left off. After overcoming a near demon conversion, Vance Mangum has left his girlfriend Portia and his coven in search of his now demon father. Not one to sit around, Portia enlists the help of her friends Shelly and Brad to join her in finding Vance. What starts off as a simple mission to retrieve Vance, soon turns into

Favorite Lines “I’m wearing happy memories,”

“I’ll never disappear from you, Vance,” I replied, “Not as long as there is breath in my body would I ever leave you.”

“You can’t blame a guy for spreading a little cheese every now and then.”

“I’m not wasting anything. I want you to be well more than anything in the world. I would even sacrifice my own life if it would accomplish that for you.”

WOW! I wasn't sure I would like the first book, let alone the series, because it was so heavy on the romance. But I found myself captivated by the epic love story that the author painted across her pages. I picked the first book up on Friday, and here I sit on Sunday, wondering why the fates had to torture me so, because the fifth and final book will not release until Feb. 2012.

While I loved the series, I think my one and only complaint about it was the lack of realistic language. Teenagers, pl

"It hurts to be away from you, but I think it might hurt more to be with you."

I really enjoyed this. It was a quick, light and easy read and it felt familiar as I have read the first book but it was a very long time ago. The only reason I haven't read this sooner is purely because I have so many books to get through and not enough hours in a day.

Portia didn't seem half as feisty as I remember she seemed more obsessed with sacrificing her self every few pages. It's obvious that Vance means th

As soon as I had finished The Trouble with Spells, I instantly picked up this book. I was so happy that I had the sequel waiting because I wouldn’t have wanted to be made to wait to find out what was going to happen next. If possible, The Demon Kiss was much more addictive.

Portia really grows a lot in this instalment of the series. I loved her in the first book and The Demon Kiss didn’t do anything to change that. If anything, I ended up loving her more. Although she is still able to show how m

See my full review at The Fairytale Nerd.

This books begins right where book one ends. Vance left Portia to look for his father. So Portia, together with her friends went after Vance in order to bring him home. The first chapters of the book takes place in Arizona, but the characters stayed most of the time in Mexico.

Like in the first book, Portia is the narrator. Here, she becomes more familiar with her powers, and becomes more comfortable with her heritage. Her

I am so grateful to be done with this book. I started this back in March and took a 4-month break from it because I couldn’t stand the weirdness of it all. It was also extremely boring. I couldn’t stand it. I also forgot that Brad and Shelly weren’t beings with magical powers. I was starting to wonder at some point why Shelly was being so clingy to Portia, but then I was like… oh, yeah, she's her high school best friend.

Originally, I felt compelled to read this book because I wanted Portia and V

This book left me begging for more and frantically searching the computer looking for the release date of the 3rd book. I think that Lacey Weatherford is a genius. She has followed up her first book (The Trouble With Spells) with a second phenomonal story. The Demon Kiss continues the journey in Portia and Vance's discovery of each other and their magic, with events that seem impossibly difficult and relentless in trying to pull them apart. Having overcome the danger of a near demon conversion, ...more
First of all, I'd like to thank Goodreads First-Reads for this book I won through their giveaway. It was a pleasure to read. I was a bit hesitant at first since this is the second book in the Witches and Warlock Series, and I had never read the first. Thankfully the author took the time in the beginning and a few places throughout the book to bring the reader up to speed. I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would since this book is geared for young adults. It was filled with romance but no ...more

This is the second in the five series of books by this author. The title is very deceiving as it implies that the entire book is about demons when it is not. I found this book to be as fast-paced as the first book. I flew through this book (just like I did the first one, perhaps even faster) because I couldn't wait to see how things progressed between the two main characters (Portia and Vance). If you enough paranormal fiction or books about witches and warlocks, I would highly recommend this bo ...more
After the giant cliff hanger in book one, I was immediately pumped to read book two. Boy, it was no disappointment. This book is full of tension, twists and turns, and of course plenty of romance.

Portia has been through a since her 16th birthday. She is introduced to the world of witches and discovers how truly evil Vance's dad is. Portia has a lot of character growth in this book. And I've got to admit, she does has some amazing qualities. Portia is exposed to much more violence and sees thing

The Demon Kiss is book 2 in the series, but I did not have the chance to read book 1. So, when I started reading, I did have to play catch-up. It took me awhile to understand exactly what happened, and to understand the characters. Also, since I primarily read adult fiction, I had to adjust to reading a young adult book. Especially in the beginning of this book, there is quite a bit of teenage angst, and emotions run pretty wild. As the story progresses, I fell into the plot and I understood the ...more

The Demon Kiss is book 2 in "Of Witches and warlocks" series of books by Lacey Weatherford, it starts from where the 1st book, The Trouble with Spells left off.

I ADORED this book. When I finished the first book (The Trouble With Spells), I was so excited to read The Demon Kiss and I crossed my fingers that it would be just as exciting and entertaining. Now that I've finished reading The Demon Kiss, all I can say is that it FAR exceeded my expectations. The Demon Kiss picks up straight where the first book left off and instantly drew me into the storyline. I loved reading about the beginning stages of Portia and Vance's relationship and in this book, I ...more

Womp. I never really got completely into the first book but what the heck, just kept working my way through the series anyway.
In the first installment, there's all these different things goings on. Portia is turning 16, she's learning she's a witch, learning how to use powers, falling in love, watching her BF get kidnapped, saving his life while dealing with the death of students and a friend, losing her best friend, and working to hide from Vance's dad.

My thoughts:
~ the quick note ~
Demon Kiss is a fast-paced, tragic, triumphant, romantic, inspirational, emotionally loaded, powerful story. It grabs you from the first sentence and doesn't let you go! This is a "cover to cover, hope you downloaded book three on the same day" read.

If you haven't started the series at all - go get all three books (four is coming soon) - or if you have already read book 1 - then grab something to snack on, something to drink and get set up in your favorite reading

Title Thoughts: It fits perfectly!

Cover Thoughts: I really like it. I like how they are always both in the cover.

WARNINGS: There are just some really good kissing scenes.

First, let me start with what has been on my mind since I finished this book this morning. Weatherford is a torturous little writer! And I say that in the nicest way possible. I've come to discover that she ends her books by leaving you with her characters on the brink of another adventure. She leaves you wanting more.

While I wasn't the biggest fan of the first book, Of Witches and Warlocks: The Demon Kiss stepped up this series in a major way, making it a new must-read series of mine, because not only did the characters and plot threads get more fleshed out and the writing become better, but The Demon Kiss is filled with action, romance, and even some laugh-out loud parts.

2.5 Stars. This book takes place soon after the end of Book One. Portia, along with her friend Shelly and her boyfriend Brad embark on a journey to track down Vance who has gone off alone to hunt down his evil father Damien. What I like about Lacey Weatherford's books is that she doesn't keep you waiting for the "good stuff". I wasn't looking forward to reading about Portia suffering because Vance isn't near or worse I was afraid of reading about a really long journey to find him. Fortunately I ...more

Wow, this series is just awesome. This is the second book in the Of Witches and Warlocks series. This book takes you on a roller coaster ride - making you feel just about every emotion imaginable.

The sequel to the romantic The Trouble With Spells, The Demon Kiss gives us a lot more suspense.

We come back to Portia and Vance after Vance is turned into a half-demon, and Portia is left behind while Vance goes on a search for his evil father.

What I really appreciate in these books is that Ms Weatherford doesn't keep you waiting for the action until the very end. There is enough going on throughout the book to keep you entertained. There were a lot of moments in the book that made me giggle, w

Ahh how I love Vance! He is a totally dangerous BA, but I love him anyway. The Demon Kiss is full of action that is practically non-stop. It is pretty crazy & there are some cool magic happening. I also liked that Shelly & Brad were around more because they were helping Portia & Vance. There were just so many parts of the story that I really liked. They were a ton of really intense parts as well as a cliffhanger! I don't want to give too much away, but I learned some interesting thin ...more

The Demon Kiss starts off flawlessly where The Trouble With Spells ended and takes you on a whole new sensational ride. My favorite thing about Lacey Weatherford's books so far are the characters. She has written them in such a way that they become more and more believable the longer you "know" them. Portia and Vance are such an amazing young adult couple. I love that no matter what obstacles are thrown at them the one thing that they never question is their love for the other. Even though they ...more

I Received An ARC Of This Book In Exchange For My Honest Review

This is the second book in the series and it just keeps getting better. I can't praise Lacey and her writing enough.

This book picks up where the Trouble With Spells ends. Portia with the help of their friends Brad and Shelly go off in search of Vance. They find him rather quickly and after some kissing, arguing, and more kissing they join him in the search for his father. That is when all the fun really begins.
