I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Anybody who’s read Larissa Ione’s Demonica series knows that it’s a good, entertaining paranormal romance series with alpha male heroes, adorable heroines, sizzling chemistry, and intriguing storyline. But what if all that was put together in one story and mixed with an MM romance? OMG. I think that’s just really hot.

While, theoretically, this looked liked a really good addition to the series, I felt like the story itself wasn’t as great as the other books. I mean, I love that it was an MM story for a change. I felt like the plot wasn’t as strong as the anticipation. It is still good and enjoyable, but it wasn’t a standout. The two heroes’ romance also felt rushed. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it’s only about 150 pages. I still feel like the romance could have developed better.

I do have to commend the author for injecting a new angle of romance into the series. If Ms. Ione ever decides to write another MM romance into this series, I’m sure that I and many other readers and fans will be as excited as they are with this book. There is no question about the author’s ability to take her readers on a memorable paranormal romance journey that’s full of supernatural wonders. This book has that too. Now, if only it were longer, had a more chance for the characters to develop their relationship, I’d say that this would be one of the best books for the year. As it is, it is a good book, and while it is not one of my favorites, it is still something I’d certainly recommend for PNR and LGBT fans.
