Publisher's Summary

He knew it was a dumb stunt from the start. A midnight run through a cemetery to impress a couple of girls is hardly the stuff of legend, but Alex Carlisle longs to escape the crushing mediocrity of life after high school. Then he stumbles upon the ritual, and the cultists, and two bound and bloodied women. Alex intervenes and the ritual blows up in his face, leaving him bound to them both: Rachel and Lorelei, an angel and a succubus. It's hardly the sort of challenge a guy can face with dignity when he still lives at home with his mom. Alex never imagined falling for an immortal demon seductress, or that he'd spend his nights dodging her co-workers, her old boss, and every other supernatural freak in Seattle. He never thought a woman like Lorelei could have a rival like Rachel, either. But then, nobody ever said adulthood would be easy)

Read the Warning Label!

This book comes with a warning. Read that warning. Everything in that warning is true and it is awesome!

Honestly this book probably should be sitting in the erotica section. There is plenty of sex going on. However, unlike most of the books in that section this actually has a good story.(sorry to that section, but I am no stranger to it) The characters have arcs and develop and grow as people. There are a couple subplots that are free from most of the overt sexuality of the rest of the book. The story is pretty typical paranormal fantasy. It has some great character work, but does stumble into cliche now and again; I don't hold that against it though. I genuinely wanted to know what happened to the character and wanted the story to move along. I never felt the sex was intrusive, but also didn't keep reading just to get to the next sex scene.

If you are an adult who isn't freaked out by sex, and it actually is pretty vanilla compared to how it could have gone, then listen and enjoy. You will probably want to use earbuds if you have kids.

Tess Irondale does a great job as a narrator. Sometime with material like this the narrator can sound uncomfortable, bored, or even a little too into it. She does a great job riding that line while giving a believable and very listenable read. I actually have problems listening to female narrators for long stretches she does an excellent job, and I binge listened to this book and never grew weary or irritated with the voice in my ear.
