Side note: This ebook currently costs $8 from Amazon.  I was able to get this ebook for free from Pixel-of-Ink.  If you want to read this ebook, I can loan it on Kindle.  The print copy is actually cheaper this time than the ebook edition; however, you will have a hard time finding it new.

(description from Amazon) 
She's No Angel
A bodyguard?  Why in the world would a demon need a bodyguard?  Yes, it's true Ellina Kostova is only half demon. . .and an author with a cult following, but that just means strange stuff happens. She isn't in real danger.  Heck, she's in more danger from Jude Anthony, the guy her brother has hired to protect her.  In big danger, actually.  Because she just cannot be attracted to. . .well, anyone.  She's too much of a demon in bed.  No, really.

Jude has grown accustomed to being an outcast, adrift in both the mortal and preternatural worlds.  Being a paid fighting machine isn't glamorous, but he does it--and many other things--spectacularly well.  And man does Ellina Kostova need a lot of protection.  But he needs protection, too. She's making him remember what it feels like to be human.  And he's already learned no good can come of that.  Especially when he's been hired not only to protect her--but also kill her. . .(end)

I started reading this book thinking it was going to be another dramatic, intriguing fantasy novel.  Boy was I wrong!  This novel has some serious...uh...scenes in it.  At first, I thought it would just go away after the a while...but it got more intense.  It became so descriptive I felt like I needed to rub Purrell on my brain after reading a couple sentences... so...descriptive...(shudders).  It was good, outstanding even, but it was intense.

Now...on to the rest of the novel.  I really liked it.  The characters, Ellina, Jude, Maksim, Jo...made me want to be part of their lives.  They were lovable, believable, but also completely different than the average fantasy/demon-y character.  The plot was outstanding - an author, Ellina, who writes about a demon hunting cake decorator, gets a bodyguard after as series of break-ins and then falls in love with him all while being hunted (SPOILER ALERT!) by her gay, bestfriend neighbor!  Such a drama filled story...

Why 3 stars/  The author did an incredible job of keeping the story alive and making you believe this could actually be happening right under your nose.  Creepy, but awesome.  I just wanted more of actual story and less of the overly descriptive sex scenes.  Happy review day!
