The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox

The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox is about, well an accidental demon slayer, of course. Lizzie Brown opens her front door on her thirtieth birthday to see her birth grandmother (who she has never met) at her doorstep. She looks nothing like a grandmother should look and pushes her way into Lizzie's house and her life. Along with her bossy attitude and her Kiss My Asphalt T-shirt, she seems to have brought along all sorts of crazy unusual things. One of them being the demon that comes out of Lizzie's toilet. After defeating the demon, Lizzie is dragged out of her home and her normal life, along with her (now) talking dog, and pulled into an unusual adventure. One filled with demons, imps, and sexy griffins. An adventure she wont soon forget.

I finally finished this book! I've been trying to read this book for months, but I kept having to put it down to review books that authors had asked me to read (not that it was bad, because if you've read my other reviews, they were all good), but I'm glad I was able to finally give this book the time it deserved. I loved it. I think it was brilliantly written, all the characters are quirky in their own unique way, and I love that. They're all fresh and unlike anything I've read in a loooong time. Lizzie is hilarious with her refusal to curse. I love her. And Gertie, and Ant Eater! I love them all. And of course, Dimitri too. He's an alpha male (yummy) but with a beautiful soft side...does that make him a gamma? Well whatever he is, he's yummy! Can't wait to read the next installment in this hot new series. Oh yeah, I love Pirate too! :D

Ok, I was going to end it there, but I have more things I loved. Like all the random spells (like the giggle spell, or the macarena spell, or how about the lost keys spell, and many many more), and all the roadkill (hehe poor Lizzie), the Smuckers jar was brilliant. The things Lizzie can do are very original too, and Angie set up such a strong world that I believe all the things Lizzie does. Ok, I'm done now. Take my stars Angie, you deserve them all!

Mari's Men by Stormy Glenn

Mari's Men is the latest e-book by author Stormy Glenn. The story (which comes out tomorrow, Monday Feb. 9th) is about a woman (Mari) who is kidnapped by a Russian mobster while hiking. She is rescued by, not one, but two of the sexiest men she has ever seen. Brothers Cole and Bear have a special bond, unlike any brother out there. Besides being twins, they can talk telepathically and feel what the other is feeling. So it's no surprise that when Cole sees Mari and falls head over heels, that Bear does too. Knowing they were going to have to eventually share a woman, both brothers were prepared for it. But can Mari grasp the concept and be able to satisfy both sexually driven men?

Wow, this book was crazy. And I mean that in a good way. Every time I read one of Stormy's books, I think that she can't possibly fit any more sex into it than the last, and then she does! She had me blushing through half of the novel, and had me taking a few cold showers. The book is steamy hot! And the storyline is just as good as the sex, with interesting twists when you least expect it. A roller coaster ride worth taking!

The Kandy Shoppe by Debora Dennis

If you're looking for a hot steamy quick read, then The Kandy Shoppe is the e-book for you. Kandace "Kandy" Parker is fed up with with her freezer. It keeps breaking down, melting her supply of ice cream, and it keeps bringing hunky repairman Jason Chapman. The man from her fantasies, the man that humiliated her years ago, and the man that was determined to make her life difficult. With the freezer on the fritz once again, Jason offers Kandy a new one for her shop. But what exactly does Kandy have to do to get that freezer?

I don't know what to say about this story, except it's all good. It's cute, it's romantic, it's steamy, and it has ice cream. What more can you ask for? And have you seen the cover? Awesome! It's like a book full of my tried and true secret fantasies. :)
