Demon's Embrace (PUP Squad Alpha #2) by Abby Blake


Heat Rating

I was given Demon's Embrace by Manic Readers for an honest review

Kali Jenkins big brother is busy working a serial murder case where the only thing that the victims have in common is that they are all female and they share the same birthday. The very same birthday as hers, so he does the only thing he can think of, he calls his Army buddy Ronan. This would be the very same Ronan that he set her up on a birthday date with five months before. Ronan calls his friend Alex the Demon when he hears how the women died because he knows it's paranormal related. Alex is as attracted to her as Ronan is but he is better at being charming so  between Ronan messing things up and Alex fixing it they may find that elusive happily ever after unless of course the deadly Pixie assassin succeeds in killing her target.

I am always game for a good paranormal story so Demon's Embrace was right up my alley. I have read the first book in the series and had wanted to read this one but I never got around to getting it. I have to say I am glad I finally got it, because it was so worth the day it took for me to read it. I think my favorite part was when they super glued the Pixie's ashes in an attempt to keep her from reforming, hahaha you will have to read the book to see if it worked.

There were a couple of bedroom scenes but they weren't very graphic, but they were well written enough that you get to wet your whistle some but it may not get you panting over the steam coming off the pages because there really wasn't a lot. After I submitted my review to Manic Readers where I had said a three flame rating was where I would rate Demon's Embrace I got to thinking and reading my ratings for heat and decided to change this rating because really in actuality, the boat was rocking even with out the complete graphic detail so I decided to change the heat rating to four flames, please forgive the wishy-washy indecision of my heat rating but I think the four does fit better.

Great writing Abby Blake I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

Book's Blurb
Kali Jenkins was just an ordinary, boring, working-from-home proofreader still hiding from her latest romantic disaster. At least, she was until something paranormal came to kill her.

Ronan Deeks hasn't been able to get Kali out of his mind. Their one-and-only date had been a complete train wreck, but when her brother rings asking for help, Ronan knows he'll do anything to protect her. When he learns the threat is paranormal, he calls in the one man he knows he can trust over all others, Alex Clements.

Alex, a long-time member of PUP Squad Alpha, usually isn't attracted to humans, but the confident and sassy redhead seems to be the exception. It's obvious that Ronan has feelings for her, but maybe there's room in Kali's life for both of them.

But their happiness could be short-lived if they can't save the woman from an invincible assassin.
