"When I told him to go to hell, I didn't realize it would be a trip for two."
All I wanted was luck--the good kind. I'd lost my job, a jerk hacked my bank account, and I caught my best friend screwing my fiancé. When stood up by my Internet date in a bar, I met the perfect man--tall, dark, and handsome in the most expensive suit. He was out of my league, but I didn't want forever.
I barely remember the words he whispered under the veil of sin and seduction. I didn't believe in Satan, God, Heaven, or Hell. I thought he was kidding. A figment. A dream.
I was wrong. With one, breathless yes, my fate was sealed.
Businessman by day, demon by night, Leo Weston now owns my soul in exchange for good luck. Time is ticking as he works to secure my mother's soul, too. Somehow, I have to take him down despite him being so damned gorgeous, glib, and devious. Will my gift of twisted luck be enough to save her and protect my heart?

Demons are my favorite paranormal characters...the good kind. And Leo Weston definitely fits the bill! I fell in love with this occasionally arrogant, occasionally clueless demon and was rooting for him and the smart and sassy Olivia right from the very beginning. A well-written story with just the right balance of suspense and humor, Twisted Luck is an enjoyable read that I highly recommend to any and all paranormal romance fans. My favorite quote: “So how many demons participate in ‘Take Your Human to Work’ day?”
It's been awhile since I've read anything from Mia, and Twisted Luck was so worth that wait! Let me tell you guys that this was one great read! Parts of it were so unexpected, and the romance between these characters was interesting to say the least. Who knew that one little wish could be so life altering... So not only was this book thoroughly entertaining, but I also just loved how Olivia worked things out to her advantage. She was clever in her determination to protect her mother, and she was just such an admirable character. Leo, on the other hand, had no idea what he was getting into with Olivia, and for all his suave charm it was great to see that he was the one charmed in the end. Overall, I cant recommend this one highly enough. If you enjoy a good paranormal romance, I promise that this one will be perfect for you!
Twisted Luck, Mia Downing Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romance, General fiction (adult) This sounded fun, and there were odd moments that made me smile but overall its not a book I particularly enjoyed. Its not a bad book, just not a great one either for me. Its starts well, and I was feeling for poor Olivia, she really had endured the post appalling string of bad luck. Yet even though I felt sorry for her I just couldn't seem to like her, or her mum. They were just so kind, loving, perfect it gave my teeth that shiver that over-sweet drinks do. Weird isn't it to dislike someone for being too nice. It wasn't quite that though, more that they both just felt unreal, too good to be true. Then along comes Leo, and of course I know he's a demon, but Olivia doesn't. Before she knows it her soul is sold. Leo may be tall dark and handsome but...he's a jerk, a selfish jerk. Even when Olivia is working on him and we get a glimpse of the person under the demon, his jerk behaviour always comes through. I just found it hard to like him, hard to believe Olivia was having feelings for him. There's some real surprises at the end, turnarounds I wasn't expecting that were good, but overall this was just an ok read for me, not one I'd read again. Stars:Three, an ok read for me, will be a hit for others of course. ARC supplied for review purposes by Netgalley and Publishers
This was not only a fun book to read but it was very unexpected. As a reader, you always bring your own expectations and preconceived notions of a character to the book at the beginning but what you don't usually expect to find is to have those notions and expectations not only blown out of the water but completely revamped. Leo is the perfect evilly exciting demon at the beginning. Hot, sexy, wild, he hits all the slots but then as their relationship grows you see him grow as well. With a simple little wish, like a bit of good luck his entire being is transformed into a hero. But he's not the only hero. This book is different. It offers up two heroes! Olivia is the one that saves Leo but Leo also saves her. I'm not going to give any spoilers but let's just say you will NOT believe the ending!!
