Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Humor punctuates this agreeably entertaining if uninspired paranormal. Sexy demon Killian O'Brien is abruptly summoned into the mortal realm by a trio of teenage girls led by precocious Daisy Reed, who wants him to find a boyfriend for her older sister. Poppy Reed has raised Daisy since the death of their parents, rejecting any thoughts of a love life in favor of a quiet, mouse-like existence. Nevertheless, she appeals to Killian, and their attraction simmers for pages of nicely held tension before exploding into hot sex. Along the way, they battle personal hangups, predatory rivals, and the silly antics of adolescent interference. Several sections are from Daisy's point of view, in a refreshing change from the typical he said/she said format. While pleasantly diverting, the story is hampered by overused plot devices, unresolved character flaws, and a boilerplate feel lacking pizzazz. (Mar.)

From Booklist

Killian O�Brien is your not-so-average demon escorting souls of the damned to their just rewards. Whiskey and women fill his downtime, and he�s quite happy with how his eternity is going until three well-meaning but meddling teenagers summon him to grant them a wish. They want him to find a real life with a good man for overworked editor Poppy, who�s devoted her past few years to raising her younger sister. �Good� is something Killian normal doesn�t deal with, but if he fails the teens, he�ll be stuck on earth. It shouldn�t be a problem, except there�s much more than meets the eye to Poppy in her slouchy jeans and logo tees, enough to make Killian wonder whether even a demon might be worthy of true love. Love follows What a Demon Wants (2010) with another humorous, off-beat tale that warms the heart with a deeply drawn hero and heroine and simmers when supersexy Killian works his wiles on Poppy and readers alike. --Nina C. Davis

Format: Paperback
Poppy has had to grow up fast when her parents die. She has to take care of her younger sister, Daisy, and pushes her own dreams aside to raise her. After a bad break-up, she has also given up on ever finding love. So Daisy decides to take matters into her own hands and summon a Demon to find Poppy's soul mate. Little did Daisy and her fellow teen friends know, Killian O'Brien could be just what they are looking for instead of just a Demon to do their bidding.

I absolutely adored this book! The characters were fun, amusing and felt real. Killian was so much more than a Demon in this book. You almost forget that he is actually a Demon from Hell! He has charm, when he attempts to use it, sexiness, and the patience to deal with young teens that believe in true love. The only problem I had with this book was how naive Poppy was. She believed everything that the young teens told her without much questioning.

I loved how Poppy had self esteem issues to work through after her previous boyfriend ditched her. What woman doesn't feel frumpy and mousy at some point? While Poppy knows she could never be supermodel gorgeous, she does want someone to love her as is. At first Killian doesn't know how he is going to find a soul mate for such a mousy and plain human, but he eventually realizes that there is so much beauty in Poppy that he wants her for himself. The only problem is Killian is a Demon from Hell with no chance of being with a human.

Personally, I can't wait for the next book in this series by this author. I loved everything about this book and who wouldn't want a man like Killian? Perfect to read as part of the series, but can easily be read as a stand alone book. Sexy, fun and full of spunk! A great read from a great author!

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on February 24, 2011
Format: Paperback
Arrogant First Circle demon of Hell Killian O'Brien is knocked out; when he regains consciousness he is surrounded by one pint sized woman Poppy Reed and three teenage girls (Poppy's sister Daisy and her best friends Emma and Madison). The teens tell Poppy he is Madison's cousin from Sweden. Poppy apologizes for hitting him over the head. The devilish trio explains to Killian they control him until he finds Poppy's soulmate.

Killian thinks his dilemma is worse of a hell than that of his boss. The teens tell Poppy he is a paranormal investigator from Sweden seeking reputed spots in the Boston area. Poppy agrees to escort Killian around town. Poppy explains to Killian that her life changed when their parents died as she went from big sister graduating college to mother. Killian tries to use his mental charm on her but it fails; just like it did with the teens. He is attracted to his cute elfin escort. At the apartment he stays in, Veper the demon warns Killian that Satan is unhappy with him. Immediately afterward the teens warn Killian that Poppy is not to fall in love with him, but he wonders what about him falling in love with Poppy.

The lead couple is a fascinating pairing of a demon and a woman who gave up her life to raise her sister. The three teens come across as real caring individuals whose antics add humor while enhancing the fun frolic. Although the anticipated confrontations never reach hellish levels, urban romantic fantasy fans will enjoy this pleasant lighthearted diversion.

What would you do if you get your hands on a spell book? Would you cast a spell to get what you desire? Or would you leave it alone?

Well Daisy and her friends (while on a sleep-over) decided to use this book of spells. Daisy wanted to cast a spell to find her sister "Poppy" a boyfriend. But I don't think they expected for the spell to actually work because they were shocked and surprised to see a man magically appeared in front of them. And what better way to welcome him, but they throwing hands full of popcorn at him and yelling. LOL. I loved that scene. A bunch of teenagers throwing popcorn at a man they summoned.

So once breaking down to "Killian" (the demon) what he was summoned for. He almost lost it. For goodness sake, he's a demon not a matchmaker. But he had very little choice, because the only way for him to get back to where he came from and his lavish lifestyle is by doing exactly what he was summoned for. So how hard can it be?

Killian is a demon. A sexy hot demon who can be almost too hot to handle. Hot tempered and outspoken he finds himself very much irritated by his new obligations. How can a demon find a human a soul mate? Maybe by them two going out and meeting new people. But what he never expected was these new developing feelings after spending time with Poppy. He was here to find her a soul mate. So why was he having a hard time with that? Is there anyone good enough for her out there?

Poppy isn't a needy kind of girl she's independent, very smart and has been through alot in her life. Such as losing her parents then taking the role of a parent to her teenage sister. Then after taking responsibility for her sister, her boyfriend leaves her too. So she's endured alot of pain but never complains.She loves her sister dearly.
