Oh my dear. Dominick, be mine? Wait… maybe I should just sell my soul and be his :D
I enjoy a story that keeps me guessing and that is exactly what this one did. Thorne is an incredibly talented author. Her characters just jumped off of the page (Dominick in particular, *swoon*).
Poor Jennifer sells her soul to Dominick one night after Brian once again leaves her alone and lonely. I have said many things out of frustration, I can just imagine being in Jennifer shoes and accidently selling my soul.
The sex in DEMON IN DESGUISE was wonderful. I love a good steamy romp and this book delivered. Brain and Dominick both brought it with the sex appeal.
I am highly intrigued by the world that she has created. Although she did not spend a lot of time developing it, like her characters she still managed to paint a vivid picture.
I figured this would be the sell your soul to a demon and fall in love with him type. I enjoyed that Thorne did not go that route. Instead she switched it up and added another story line. I hope that means she is planning on continuing the story?

My mama always said to me, “Be careful what you wish for because you
might just get it”. And truer words have never been said in the case of
the main character in DEMON IN DISGUISE by Diane Thorne. This cheeky
paranormal romance highlighted this in a most unusual but very
entertaining way. DEMON IN DISGUISE is the story about a college girl
named Jennifer who has been with your boyfriend, Brian, for about four
months. She wants to have sex with him, but for some reason unbeknownst
to her, he keeps putting her off. After one particularly frustrating
make-out/heavy petting session that left her even more frustrated, she
tells her friend, Sally, that she would be willing to sell her soul for
just one night of passion with Brian. Now I bet you can guess what
happened after that. Yep. She ends up catching the ear of a demon in
Hell and he gives her what she wants, but that means that Jennifer has
now sold her soul without realizing it. And when she does realize her
error she has to enlist the help of her boyfriend and her friend Sally
(who also happens to be a witch) to get her soul back. I wasn’t
particularly fond of the main character, Jennifer, because I thought she
was too self absorbed, and I didn’t much care whether or not she got her
soul back. In light of that, I thought it may be hard to like this book.
However, I wasn’t counting on the fact that this author made Hell so
appealing! LOL, I mean seriously, it didn’t seem like a too bad place
to be. With movie theaters, bars, clubs and the like, it certainly
seemed like a good time. I also really enjoyed the other characters
in the story. Dominick, the demon, was just a guy trying to move up in
his career, Sally the witch just wanted to find her place in the world,
and Brian--oh Brian--he had the best secrets of all. Yummy and
delicious ones. I really hope there is some follow up to that!
Overall, I thought DEMON IN DISGUISE was a fun and quick read, and
although I may have been rooting for the wrong characters, I was rooting
nonetheless. I really must demand at this point that there is a second
book surrounding these characters. I have to know what happens next!
