Publisher's Summary

I stopped believing in monsters long ago. But I knew I wasn't imagining things when I found one in my kitchen baking muffins. I'd seen him before: lurking in my closet, scaring the crap out of my five-year-old self. Turns out that was a misunderstanding, and now Maurice needs a place to stay. How could I say no?
After all, I've always been a magnet for the emotionally needy, and not just in my work as a wedding planner. Being able to sense the feelings of others can be a major pain. Don't get me wrong, I like helping people - and non-people. But this ability has turned me into a gourmet feast for an incubus, a demon that feeds off emotional energy. Now, brides are dropping dead all over town, and my home has become a safe house for the supernatural. I must learn to focus my powers and defeat the demon, before he snacks on another innocent woman and comes looking for the main course.

What disappointed you about Monster in My Closet?


Any additional comments?

The actual prose was ok but the heroine is a selfish idiot (which is weird for someone whose life literally revolved around other people) and the plot got ridiculous.

It started out reasonably well but ultimately it turned into a creepy rape-fest with very few redeeming features.

There are authors who are capable of mixing the serious (even the absolutely awful) with the gloriously frivolous, sadly this author is currently not one of them.

Quirky with Unusual Characters.

Right away I knew this would be a good book. I was engaged with the silliness right from the beginning. I loved finding out what monster was coming next in the story. There are both good monsters and evil monsters, the trick is to figure out who is who. There's also a sexy guy that is all kinds of delish and I think there is promise there. Overall a fluffy story. ***spoiler*** there was a rape scene at the end that was a bit disturbing and then glossed over a little too much. I did think the heroine was a little naïve, not to check on her friends when she knew a monster was targeting them. A fast pasted audio that made the day go by super-fast. Narrator is good and I will be defiantly getting the next book in this series.
