Demon's are a Girl's Best Friend by Linda Wisdom (thoughts)
Summary from Goodreads:
"Feisty witch Maggie enjoys her work as a paranormal law enforcement officer—that is, until she’s assigned to protect a teenager with major attitude and a sleazy boyfriend. A group of satanic Mayans priests has decided Courtney has a drop of divine blood in her—making her just the virgin sacrifice they need to release their God and rule the world. "
I've been in the mood for a good romance lately and this book fit my mood perfectly! It was a book that I couldn't put down and I thoroughly enjoyed. One of my favorite things about this book was the storyline itself. I loved the mix of demons, ancient Mayans, evil gods coming back to life, and a supernatural law enforcement team that didn't have to play by any rules. Maggie was a kick-ass character that wasn't afraid to be herself and get what she wanted. She was vulnerable enough that the romance that developed between her and Declan was both sweet and refreshing. I thought that both main characters were well developed and helped to make the novel that much better.
I've read books by this author before but thought that this was going to be a separate series. Instead, it turned out to be loosely tied in with her other books (characters from previous books were mentioned briefly) but this novel had a darker feel to it. I thought that it was also more suspenseful than my previous reads by her, and I really liked the change that this book provided. I hope that she writes more books with Maggie and her supernatural team in the future as I just didn't get enough. This was a really good addition to the paranormal romance genre in my opinion, and I will be looking forward to reading whatever books that this author writes in the future. Recommended without hesitation!
Disclosure: This book was sent to me for review by Danielle at Sourcebooks. My many thanks for the chance to read and enjoy this book!
P.S.- I thought I would share a link to a review of Hex Appeal that I posted previously by the same author as well as a link to Wicked By Any Other Name. I've also read 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover but never ended up reviewing it. All three books were enjoyable reads but this one was the best in my opinion. I also wanted to warn you that I'm hoping to flood you with reviews this week as somehow I've fallen a bit behind. Just thought I would give you all a heads up :P
