This was the debut book for Stephanie Chong and her Company of Angels series. The main character of this story is Serena St. Clair, who, when killed trying to save others in a car accident, was offered a position as a guardian angel. Her first assignment as a guardian angel is Nick Ramirez, a young rising Hollywood star, who is having trouble resisting temptation. Serena finds Nick hanging out at the nightclub Devil's Paradise where temptation is everywhere, especially in the form of the club's owner, Archdemon Julian Ascher. Julian wants to count Nick's soul in his tally and once he sets his sights on Serena, he'll stop at nothing to see her in his bed.

This story starts out hot right from the first confrontation between Julian and Serena at the nightclub. Things sizzle between the Serena and Julian, and being a demon with no conscience, Julian really will stop at nothing to get Serena to bend to his will. This was a great story with well-written characters and with each subcharacter left with an open-ended story at the end of the book, I can't wait to see where this series goes next.

You should definitely give this book a try.

Where do I start with this book? Ah yes, the predictable, boring Venn Diagram of romance novels - the dichotomy of good and evil with overlapping qualities, providing ample room for sexual tension. Nailed it! Unfortunately, Where Demons Fear to Tread wasn't at all what I expected. I knew there would be some sort of romance between Serena and Julian, but I didn't think the entire book would revolve solely around that. Adding to the tedium is the fact that their relationship and its future are completely foreseeable from page 1, yet you're stuck reading the incessant push and pull between the two characters. Julian believes he can corrupt sweet, innocent Serena and blackmails her along the way to get what he wants. Serena repeatedly resists, but with hardly any fortitude whatsoever (Really? Right away you want to jump the demon's bones?). I spent some time mulling over Serena's misplaced lust for Julian and there seems to be only one logical explanation for an angel without a shred of willpower .Axe body wash.

After revising my longstanding postulation to 'all angels are pure whores', I hoped that Serena would follow suit and finally succumb to this debonair demon for my sake, `cause Julian's sexy bod was the only thing worth reading about. Despite thoroughly enjoying his pectoral muscles, I felt that the author should have focused more on Nick, since, ya know, his life is hanging in the balance and whatnot. But alas, Where Demons Fear to Tread reads like most romance novels I've had the misfortune of picking up - total disregard for any sort of external plot, cheesy lines, and sex.lots of sex. I wouldn't recommend this book to any of my friends. However, I'm sure fans of this genre and my widowed grandmother would love it.
2/5 for getting me all hot and bothered, though.

    Decent beginning to angel/demon PNR series.

    Where Demons Fear to Tread is the first book in Stephanie Chong's series The Company of Angels. I am a huge fan of the PNR genre and angels seem to be everywhere right now. Some authors do the angel/demon thing very well and then there are others that are mediocre. I really liked Julian but Serena irritated me. I find it hard to get into a book when you find the characters somewhat unlikable but I liked the concept so I stuck with it. There was quite a bit of action and a couple of smexy scene but Where Demons Fear to Tread was just mediocre for me. I liked it but I'm not sure I enjoyed the world enough to read another book in the series.
