~ REVIEW: My Decadent Demon by Alicia Dawn & Nikita Jakz ~

20766580SynopsisSeraphina Orielle, an angel of divine fire and light, was also an oracle of foresight. Considered adolescent among her peers, she had yet to master her gift of precognition when her first vision came to pass; a captivating male whose destiny was intimately intertwined with her own. Yet he was not of angelic design. In fact, he was very far from it. Tragically, by the time Sera discovered this pivotal detail, he had already attained ownership of her heart.
But not her ability to flee…
A hundred years later and Cole Asteroth does whatever the hell he wants. When he’s not busy, that is, with ‘dirty deeds, done dirt cheap’ for his master. Ornery and sarcastic, he gets his kicks wreaking havoc in the human realm. Oh, and making very un-angelic women beg for his touch. Life is good…
Until fate catches up with him.
A few weak moments, one too many innocent visitations and the two are entangled all over again. But things are much more complicated now. And Cole no longer possesses much in the way of faith and forgiveness.
As the estranged lovers struggle with what path to take, they quickly discover that destiny, too, is a reluctant second chance provider. As outside resistance and decadent captivity ensues, can their situation get any more exasperating?

Christie's Review4.5 starsWOW!!!! Who knew a love story between an oracle and a demon could be so HOT? As I began My Decadent Demon, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. However, after reading the first few paragraphs, I was hooked.

Seraphina, Sera, is an oracle in training who has the gift of foresight, and one of the first visions she sees is a sexy as sin demon, Cole. However, she doesn’t know he is a demon; she just knows that his destiny is linked to hers. She sets off to find him in the human world, and he is even more spectacular in person. When the two meet, they begin a sexy, torrid affair until she realizes what he truly is. Of course, her being an angel and him being a demon would never work in her eyes, so she leaves him. Fast forward 100 years later, and she hasn’t been able to forget him. Meanwhile, he has been living half a life without his angel. She hunts him down again, and they pick up where they left off with Sera professing her love for him. Of course, fate intervenes, and they have some major obstacles to overcome. Will they be able to overcome their two very different backgrounds to find their own HEA?

This book has to be one of the most sensual reads I have read. Both of these writers have a talent in engaging the senses which draws the reader deeper into the story. They use such lines like these.

“He could still taste her on his tongue, could smell her exotic scent mingling with the chocolate.”

“Inching closer she leaned in, savoring his voice as he spoke. It was like soft, warm velvet rubbing across her skin.”

“Her lids slid closed as she inhaled his scent. Oh Heavens, he smelled raw and wild and intoxicating. Like thunderstorms and forest fires and the finest ambrosia.”.

And I don’t think I will ever look at candy and chocolate the same way again after their hot session in the kitchen. WOW!!!!

There wasn’t one thing I disliked about the characters. Sera is one unique angel. There is a sweet innocence to her, but yet she does have this naughty side that Cole is an expert at bringing out. Cole is one hot domineering demon. All he has to do is look at Sera, and she is putty in his hands, and he is excellent with those hands! As readers will see, he may be a demon, but he certainly has a human man’s heart. They seem to bring out the best in each other, and they are a couple you are really rooting for. You want them to end up together even though they are from two very different worlds and have so much to overcome to find happiness. I will say it again. The sex scenes are UNBELIEVABLY HOT!!!

Borrowing one of Sera’s quotes, “Sweet stars above,” this one fantastic, steamy, sensual book. I do have the sequel already on my Kindle. As I finish this review, I will be headed back into the sensual world of Sera and Cole to see where the two lovers are headed next. If you are in the mood for a sexy love story with great characters, I would highly recommend this one.

Synopsis

No Regrets is a STAND ALONE New Adult novel 

Henry broke Zadie’s heart once, is she fool enough to let it happen again? 

It’s not like she has a history of making good choices. In fact, she has a history of making terrible choices. Her biggest regret? Henry. He’s sexy, sweet and willing to do what it takes to get another chance, but does he deserve it? 

Hot summer days and warm, tension-fueled nights set the backdrop for Zadie and Henry as they navigate the landmines of their past, present and future.

Untitled

This book is about moving on from the past and enjoying the college years.  Zadie and Henry are both college students at the same university.  They went to the same high school and were on the swim team together and even though they flirted with each other during that time, never hooked up.  Zadie feels she was wronged by Henry in high school because he told other people he was going to ask her to prom and then he didn’t, so she had to find another date at the last minute.  During college, Zadie and Henry reconnect during a summer lifeguard job and realize they both still have feelings for each other.  Zadie is hesitant to act on those feelings because she is still feeling bitter about high school.  Henry wants to give a real relationship a try with Zadie.  Can Zadie move on from what happened in high school and have a relationship with Henry?  Will Henry let Zadie down like he did in high school? 

This book is a light, fluffy read.  It includes some typical college behavior; crazy frat parties, drinking and smoking weed and having sex in wild places.  I would recommend this book if you are looking for something light with a sweet HEA after a book hangover.
