I wanted a good read-ie; plot, characters, background and realistic conclusions. Every other line is about saving/corrupting a soul through great sex-who cares how many times he stuck his finger up her snatch to finger her clit? I got through 10 chapters and this is all that I read about for each chapter=his finger and her clit-so boring.
Shallow plot drags along in childish writing-her development of the silly neighbor never progresses-never changes, thus character is very flat.
If all you are looking for is childish finger fu**ing-weeping penis and childish writing-certainly buy this book. Otherwise save not only your $ but your time
Destiny is at a bar looking for her next soul because she needs to meet her quota. When she spots the lone cowboy sitting in the bar she figures it's a done deal but later wonder who's seducing who. But what she doesn't know is that that lone cowboy has his own agenda.
This was a enjoyable read from the start, middle and end. As this is a paranormal erotica, I have to commend the author on a mouth watering and thrilling first chapter and story. The first chapter sets the pace for the rest of the book physically and gives insight on what you can look forward to.
I love the setting and Texas feel to this paranormal. I wasn't craving a cowboy but Chance won me over. Chance and Destiny meets in a bar, they both have the same goal, with different agendas as one is a demon and the other an angel. Although they are total opposite, the one thing that is undeniable, is their fiery sexual chemistry. I didn't have a problem with Chance's character as he sets his plans in to motion to seduce Destiny. Destiny's character has a lot to sort out as she battles with whom she is becoming as well as finishing her quota to get where she needs to go; but she and Chance did not count on love.
The paranormal aspect of the story was ok for me in the beginning, as much is being explained about who and what Chance and Destiny really are. However, once the core of the story was reached and a villain is presented, it woke me up a bit. The villain was an interesting character whose connection to one of the characters was an unexpected surprise and added a nice climax to the story.
Last but not least, the sexy trio of friends and supporting characters of the story. The sexy trio consists of Ryder, Dillion & Hunter. They are Chance's friends and connected to who he really is. There is nothing more exciting than a group of sexy men grouped together with their own unique characteristics within a story. I'm looking forward to their story as well. LeAnn, Destiny's friend was such a lovable character and I will admit that the ending that she got did bring a tear to my eye. You can't go wrong with a teary eye reunion. I impatiently wait for other books in the series. If they are anything like this book I can't wait to be satisfied.

I was drawn to Where There's Smoke after reading the blurb. I liked the idea of a demon (wannabe, not actual) falling in love an angel very enticing. That, and the fact that it was a new novel by Karen Kelley, author of the Planet Nerak series which features aliens and male robots who satisfy a woman's every whim, I mean, honestly, who can you resist?
To begin with, you have Destiny, a demon-in-waiting (so to speak), landing on Earth in order to earn her true demon-ness. But all she really wants is to relax a little and enjoy all the up-grades Planet Earth has made in the last 40 years. And sex. See, Destiny (appropriately named) died in 1959 and was thereby summoned to the Dark Side. Having seen nothing but the dark side all her life, she succumbed and has been biding her time in Hell's sorting station. Now she's offered the chance to prove herself. If she brings in just one soul - signed, sealed, delivered to the bosses that be - she will become the demon she's been dreaming of being.
Then she sees Chance sitting in a bar. Mysterious, masculine, a black Stetson and tight jeans... What's not to love there? Of course Destiny sees Chance and immediately succumbs to his good looks, great body, and amazing smile. And, oh! What he does to her in that bar! *blushing* But she has no idea that Chance is a nephilim (half angel, half human) sent to save her soul from the clutches of Satanism.
There is a great cast of background characters - a goody-two-shoes neighbor, the demon-like Beulah, plus a few souls who have great faith and belief in mankind. Then, because no good nephilim story would be without them, Chance's friends, roommates, and fellow nephilim, Dillon, Hunter and Ryder (whose story is due out in September).
Where There's Smoke is a breezy, light read - perfect for those lazy days when you get to lay around, be it on the beach or your sofa, and fall into another world. Let someone else worry about the laundry and the dishes. Read and enjoy!
