Damon Snow has been a favorite of mine since I was contacted to review the series. I've had this title on my Kindle for months, simply because I wasn't in a Historical Romance mood. In a way, I'm glad, as it was the perfect time to dive right in
This is one series that I've always wondered why it's not more popular. Damon's narrative always hooks me from the first page. Damon Snow is a male prostitute incubus, but the paranormal tidbits are below the surface.
At the root of it, Damon is insecure (poor guy doesn't want him impending birthday), awkward, not nearly as enticing as he believes yet is more so in a different way, in need of love, and incapable of voicing his wants and needs. He sees himself as lesser, as I'm sure many in his position also felt. But he also doesn't believe himself worthy of love, which forces him to lash out like a terrified, wounded kitten.
While reading, I get the feels. Olivia Helling writes in a way that I experience the same emotions right alongside our narrator. I simultaneously want to kick Damon's perfect behind while giving him a huge hug.
There are a few intriguing side characters. Damon is in love with his mentor of sorts, who is dying, and he doesn't know how to handle it. His fellow molly I believe is in love with Damon, but he doesn't see it as such (thinking the man only wants to use him) His mentor's partner takes a center stage performance in this book, with a detailed BDSM scene which was almost as cute as it was hot (you'll have to read it to figure out what I mean by that) I just enjoy Damon getting his ass handed to him because he's so... just Damon.
Excuse me while I go fetch the next in the series. I don't have it for review, but I'll buy it and have it added to the posts just the same.
I truly believe this series needs some recognition. Sweet. Funny. Dark. Grieving. Very human yet other.
In this series Helling balances a lot of tricky and unusual elements, and pulls it all of very effectively.
