To Kiss a Demon
An Immortally Sexy Novel
by Stephanie Rowe
This is a very sweet, funny and engaging story with likeable and relatable main characters. The pacing was good and the focus was very much on romance, rather than the paranormal aspects. I haven’t read the previous books in this series of standalones but the author very cleverly sprinkled enough details for me to understand the world without having too many spoilers.
My preference veers more towards the UF, with some romance/sex*, than PNR but I found plenty of story in this book to entertain me. In fact this felt like a well written rom-com, cosy mystery, PNR mash up. However, as much as it entertained me it didn’t grip me and it is very generic, making it a story where, given a few, I will have forgotten most of what happened. That doesn’t make it a bad book, in fact it there are times when we all want a light-weight, unchallenging, non-threatening palate cleansing read and this one is perfect for that, particularly if you are a PNR fan.
*I know the purists will argue there is NO romance or sex in UF but there are plenty of books out there with those aspects in but where the emphasis remains on plot over romance.
