From Publishers Weekly
Rowen (Bitten & Smitten) throws together a demon with a checkered past, an exorcist with an agenda, and a witch with a self-help book in this funny, suspenseful, and frequently hot paranormal series launch. Eden Riley is nearly 30 and unemployed when she inherits a half-share in a detective agency. The police learn of her powers and take her on a hunt for a serial killer—who happens to be possessed. When the killer gets his comeuppance, the demon picks Eden for his new host. Darrak seems to be a nice enough guy, but he can hear and see everything that Eden does, which considerably compromises Eden's budding romance with police detective Ben Hanson. The twists come thick and fast, and Rowen leaves plenty of tangles unresolved for sequels. (May)

This is a story about a demon and a psychic who has very little control over her psychic abilities. Now she has a demon spirit living inside her with no way remove it and return to her normal life. There's a lot plots and turns in this story that makes it very interesting to read. And how these two learn to come to some terms with each other and survive this situation. Which brings about love they feel for each other.
Darrak is a demon who has to jump from host to host to survive. Unfortunately for Eden, that serial killer was his last host and when Detective Ben killed him Darrak was forced to jump to another body. Guess who that turned out to be? Yes, Darrak and Eden now inhabit the same body. This is something new for both of them as Eden has never had a demon in her (obviously) and Darrak has never jumped to a female before.
Watching Darrak and Eden navigate the boundaries of their new life was fun. The author actually addresses subjects that the common reader would ask. What happens when Eden needs to go to the bathroom? What happens if she wants to get physical with someone? They have very funny exchanges throughout the book and the momentum never stops.
I really liked that Eden didn't trust Darrak right away. I think it was very realistic for her to try to take the measures that she did. She unwittingly started an undesirable chain of events, but how was she supposed to know? She was looking out for number one. I also really liked the facts that we found out about Darrak. I liked that he tried to present himself in the best possible light and that Eden had to figure out if she was okay with the reality of who he was once she found out more about him.
All in all a fun new series that I would definitely recommend.
This series is awesome, even though its a trilogy (thus far anyhow), I cant put it down. Its sexy, hot, intense and has enough action to make it real without overdoing it. This book is more believable than most, which makes it even harder to put down and eat dinner (I cheated and did the napkin over the Kindle trick, but dont tell).
I just got done with this one and I will immediately be buying the second. Totally worth even trying. I love this book!!
