Synopsis

 

“Into the bowels of hell I would follow you.” 

“Good because that’s exactly where we’re going.” 

Never in her wildest nightmares did Seraphina see herself taking refuge in the underworld. Cole, however, should have seen it coming. Sera’s kin would never let her go and that was the one place their holier-than-thou feet couldn’t tread. Unfortunately, residing in a realm where the vilest of depravity thrives only adds to Cole’s problems. Now he must keep Sera safe from not only her kind, but his debauched brethren as well. Even Cole’s demon-half has become more volatile, the constant subjection to evil taking its toll. His world is no place for an angel. He needs to find a solution so he can get her the hell out of there. 

And he needs to find it fast. 

When the opportunity arises to finally solve their dilemma, he jumps at it with talon-claws swinging. But it’s a dangerous mission – and Sera’s riding shotgun. As deadly adventures unfold and all hope seems lost, Cole is forced to search inside himself. With a soul that’s riddled with more questions than answers, can he find the lifeline they need?

Christie's Review

4.5 stars

My Demon Determined picks up right where the first book ended with Cole and Sera on the run from Sera’s brethren who want her to return home with them. What better place for Cole to hide her than the underworld, a world that Cole didn’t want to return to. His dislike for the underworld can be seen when he thinks to himself, “Welcome back to Hell. Population: infinity-and beyond.” He and Sera soon strike a bargain with his master for her protection, but they both know the debt will be steep. The longer they stay there, they realize Sera may not be safe at all, either from the underworld creatures, Cole’s master, or Cole’s demon side that is determined to take over him completely. So, they embark on a dangerous journey in which they think will result in their freedom.

This second book was different from the first one for me. Yes, the scorching chemistry is still there between the angel and demon, but this story is more developed and descriptive. For instance, the areas of hell are very vivid. As the authors used readers’ senses to engage them in the sensuality between the couple, they engage those same senses to give them a real, raw, disgusting look at Hell. I was as disgusted and scared as Sera was when she confronted by the different creatures she encountered. Like Sera, I wanted to vomit when the dining area was described. I felt as stifled and morose as she did. Then, when Cole redid their room to depict a beautiful beach, the descriptions were so vivid that you could smell and taste the salt and sand. Of course, I fell more in love with Cole and Sera. They make the perfect couple who complement each other beautifully.

My Demon Determined was a great addition to the series. Again, readers are left with a bit of a cliffhanger but not where the couple are concerned, but it ends perfectly with the set up for another adventure for Cole and Sera. I can’t wait to see where the next adventure leads me. If you have read the first one in the series, you need to get this one. If you haven’t met Cole and Sera, you really should…get the first book, My Decadent Demon!
