Overview

If Ellie Locke dies, so does her sister, so when Ellie is murdered by a water god, it's a no-brainer to cheat death by accepting a deal from a stranger with the power to freeze time...until she discovers he has just set her up as a target for sociopathic serial killer with excellent magical skills.

Her only chance to survive her new job as an agent in a magical crime-fighting organization is her partner, a deliciously sexy half-demon who needs to stay alive as badly as she does. Neither of them has the magical ability to defeat a sociopath who has already killed seventy-six of their predecessors, but who needs skills when you have incentive?

Smoke, shadows, a hostile demon dad from the beyond, and highly paid assassins sent by her loving parents make things a little complicated for Ellie and her new partner, but what's a pair of breasts and an intimate moment for, if not to save themselves and the world?

And this is just the start.

P.S. Do you see that gold medallion on the cover? It means the book contains Super Secret Bonus Scenes, which are extremely cool and contain secrets that aren't available anywhere else.

You can't go wrong reading a S. A. Bayne book. She is great with the paranormal genre. A great start to a new series, it is short and easy to read. Tomas has chosen Ellie (witch with no powers) & Jack (half demon), giving them a second chance if they join the Magical Elite, a magical crime fighting organization. Ellie is running from assassins hired by her parents and Jack is working to keep his demon contained. Working together will they be able to defeat the Trick that is chasing them? 1-Click Today. Was provided an ARC for an honest review by author.

I just finished this novella, and I love being back in this author’s fun worlds. Ellie, Jack, and Tomas were such interesting characters, and this peak into their world just leaves me wanting more. Yes, this was a novella and there wasn’t much time to dip into this world to a large degree. However, this author’s great storytelling made me feel so much for the characters that I want to learn even more. I especially want to learn more about Tomas as we didn’t see him as much. This was a fun novella! So, bring on the next book! I highly recommend this novella and was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

Ellie Locke & a deliciously sexy half-demon have one thing in common… they both have one thing to live. When death comes for them, they accept a deal in order to cheat death. Smoke, shadows, a hostile demon day from the beyond and highly paid assassins sent by loving parents makes things for a little complicated for the new partners. This new series starts off with a fast paced and energetic read that introduces a promising new world. The characters are strong, vivid and easily grab readers’ attention although the relationship between the hero and heroine is just getting started so there’s not a lot of romance but the chemistry between them sizzles with lots of heat. The story starts off with an adrenaline pumping event and just keeps going with non-stop action and fun that causes quite a bit of hanging on the edge of your seat thrills and quite a bit of laughter. Although on the short side, the story is quirky and fun but mixed with lots of danger and suspense, coming together to form an enjoyable, entertaining and refreshingly different read with some unique story elements.

I really enjoyed this first book in the series and am looking forward to the next one. It is action packed and I like the dynamic between the two of them. I want to learn more about these characters and their pasts. They both had some really bad experiences with their parents that continue to haunt them. They are very loyal to those they love and are already experiencing quite a connection to each other. I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received.

Full of action and characters that will have you laughing. Ellie’s day is not going well and when she finds herself given an opportunity to escape death and become apart of an elite team set on saving the world she figures why not it can’t be worse than dying and well at least she will be alive to find her sister. Little does she know she is about to be sent on a mission to take out a serial killer with a half demon who refuses to give in to his demon and a piece of sandpaper. This book was a great read. The super secret bonus scenes were a real addition. The scenes gave you a little more of the story without an epilogue feel. I look forward to reading more of this series.

I always go into shorter books like this skeptically. Many authors seem to use them as a way to burn through a romance they didn't have an original idea about or characters they didn't like - and as a reader, I can always tell. Or the author expects you to believe some super condensed crap. The Demon You Trust busts all those and is all kinds of book badness. In a good way! This book is the perfect intro to a series; a delicious balance of setting up long-term world building, mysteries, and secrets, while also giving you a beat-the-bad-guy storyline in a satisfying way. The heroine's weapon is pure comedic genius that deserves its own award for the most original weapon in a paranormal romance series. I'm looking forward to reading more about this world. Since we come in at the start of the journey, as a reader I don't feel like I'll be playing catch-up as storylines unfold and characters are added. I get to be there as everything unfolds. And yes...I feel this way only after a novella!! I can't wait to explore backgrounds and families and watch how in the world Jack balances raising a daughter while protecting the world - and where Ellie fits into that picture.

What a ride! It was like a rollercoaster you had gasps, laughs, a fright and a flirt with romance that you never wanted to end.. Fun, witty, and original with characters you want to know and embrace. I was so happy for the bonus peeks because I could not get enough of these characters. Who knew sandpaper could be so interesting! I received an Advanced Review Copy of The Demon You Trust in exchange for posting a review .

From the very first page the story grabbed you and took you on a wild ride. It was high intensity through out. Ellie and Jack weren't what I would consider heros in the beginning, but they sure ended up that way. These two were paired up to fight supernatural criminals with no training or any real weapons. What Ellie ended up weapon wise was hilarious. This unique duo were great characters and I can't wait to see what happens next. I loved this book and if you don't read this one, you'll be missing out. I received an ARC of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.

Ellie is the demi God daughter of two beings out to kill her. On the run for her life and desperate to find her beloved missing sister, she really wished she still has powers. Sadly her parents took them from her. So begins this story. Ending up inn a bar looking for something she somehow gets stuck in the midst of a fight for claiming her by two strangers. Who the heck should she trust? What was the best way NOT to die and manage to find her sister? And so she sides with Thomas the current Van Helsing. Oh yeah and she's not the only one.... Jack is a half demon single widower with an amazing young daughter. Desperate to keep her safe and continue to deny his demon father's desire that her fully embrace his demon side. Neither he or Ellie know WHY they are chosen, or how to defeat the big bad that's apparently arbor to turn up in mere seconds. Can they save themselves, kill the big bad and save their loved ones! Two people with little magic, huge hearts and desire to succeed, and possibly a slight attraction to each other. I thoroughly enjoyed this first book of the series. The quips, action, mystery and intrigue were fully enjoyable. I can't wait to see what's next up for this dynamic duo!!!!

I am so glad I did she is on a roll. Here we find her playing with half demons and pissed off demigod Parents who are trying to kill their daughter and all she wants to do is find her missing sister .You see I love this book for many reasons it made me smile it had that I have to finish it vibe to it . I sat down and it was in my hand and I didn't want to let go .oh sorry back to the book . So what is a girl supposed to do but well almost die then almost die again hahaha but with the help of her new friends Thomas who is the boss,the half demon Jack, and the SPOILER ALERT @#$%^&^*% HAHAHAHAHAHA (made you look ) they make up a team and they save the day . Enough to try again with the next book ...So if you want a great read please grab this book up You wont regret it .
