It’s been three months since psychologist Megan Chase made the stunning discovery that the world is filled with demons, and once more the situation is too hot to handle. Ironically, Megan – the only person in the world without a little personal demon sitting on her shoulder – has become the leader of a demon “family,” but now some unknown arcane power is offing her demons in a particularly unpleasant fashion. And while her demon lover Greyson Dante is still driving her wild with desire, he’s also acting strangely evasive. Then there’s the truth about Megan’s past – the truth she’s never known. Caught between personal problems and personal demons, Megan is having one h*ll of a hard time. Will the help of her Cockney guard demons and her witch friend Tera be enough so that Megan can finally resolve the past, survive the present, and face the future?
Picked this book up without realizing that it was the second book in a series. I felt like I was missing something a few times while reading, but I was able to follow the story without too much trouble. However, I would recommend reading Personal Demons first, just to have the necessary back story.
That being said, I really liked reading about Megan, her demon boyfriend Greyson, the three demons who act as bodyguards, and Megan’s demon “helper” Roc. Megan did not want to become the head of a demon family, but she is slowly getting the hang of what is expected of her and accepting her responsibilities. Suddenly though, her demons are being attacked and Megan must figure out how and why. Megan must also deal with the repercussions of her past and the fallout from a personal crisis.
While I understood that Megan is a human dealing with demons, I wished at times that she would be a little stronger and more self-reliant. Think I may be getting spoiled by all of the tough heroines out there, as in Megan’s shoes I would probably be hiding under my bed, refusing to come out! *L*
All in all, Megan is a great character and I really liked Roc, her demon assistant. Greyson was okay, but I loved the three “boys”, especially Spud! For demon bodyguards, they were awfully polite (and handy with a curling iron!)
Really enjoyed this book and gave it a 4 out of 5 rating. Not sure if I’ll go back and read Personal Demons, but will definitely read any future books featuring Megan!
