About the Author

Laurie Olerich is the author of the Primani and Demons After Dark series. Part romance, part paranormal, part adventure...Three things she can’t live without! Laurie spent most of her life in the Northeastern United States and in Western Europe. She now lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her son and Dalmatian muse Rambo. In an attempt to re-live her wild and crazy younger years, she lives vicariously through her characters by setting their adventures in her favorite city, New York, and the mountain forests of New England as often as possible. Before diving into a writing career, Laurie dedicated 20 years to her country by serving in the United States Air Force. Much of her time was spent around men with guns and cool toys...this explains her obsession with both.

I enjoyed this story. The levels of demons and angels along with the "human" behavior in exiling for some devious plan made it a good read. As Dylan tries to change her future, she ends up asking for help from Vanek and his fellow demons. Together, their chemistry is off the charts. Her strength and his total honesty kept me turning the pages. I look forward to the next in this story as they try to get to the bottom of the nefarious plot. This is a Candid Book Reviews selection, and this is my unsolicited review.

Vanek (Demons After Dark Book One) by Laurie Olerich Laurie Olerich has this new series that is a continuation from the Primani series. As I very much enjoyed those books, I wanted to give this new series a try. This is a smoking hot read with a great storyline that is fast paced. It brings us Vanek and Dylan. Vanek is a demon that has been ousted and dropped into a human body. Dylan is a psychic that is being used and threatened by a demon. The Primani show up in this book and I always enjoy a book that has characters that I am familiar with in it. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series. Laurie can be counted on to always bring a great story, she has turned into one of my favorite authors.

Vanek, book one of Demons After Dark by Laurie Olerich is a new take on demons for me. One rarely sees them portrayed in a good light, but our hero and his “brothers” from Hell are definitely the good guys with a lot of bad attitude, oodles of sex appeal, and hearts of gold. They have been ejected from Hell after having been falsely accused of conspiring against Lucifer. Thrust into the human realm without powers or memories, they seek out the others as they remember who they are. Vanek is the third of several who have been restored, and they form Expat Security to generate income and search for their missing members. Vanek meets Dylan as she flees from the demon her father has traded her to. She seeks out Expat to help her disappear and…well, you’ll have to read the book to find out. Suffice to say that there’s lots of action, passion and witty dialogue as the couple moves towards a resolution. There's also an unlikely alliance that forms which moves the story forward to it exciting conclusion, and promises what I imagine will be several more exciting books. Ms. Olerich is a skilled writer, and so I rate this book as highly recommended. I am looking forward to reading more and so very glad to have discovered this author.

Vanek was a great starter book for this series. Exiled and thrown into a human's body is the least of his worries. A woman, Dylan, needs his help, but going up against her enemies may prove to be a little hard. Add into it a bit of love and the adventure is a thrilling ride. Gonna grab me the next installment.

May contain a SPOILER!! New author to me and book sounded really good. It started out kinda slow. It took awhile to figure out where it was going and what was really going on. So, there was a little confusion at the beginning. It didnt really start to speed up and come together til about 35-40% in. It was an interesting way to get things started in a mental institution with these characters. Dylan's character has been through hell. She's been sold to a demon soul broker and he's mean as pun intended. She's got a psychic gift and she's able to find things for him. When she fails there are painful consequences. She has a number of psychotic breaks where she loses reality throughout the book. Dont get me wrong. She's not crazy but anyone who's been through what she has the minds tend to go to a different place sometimes in order to not deal with those memories. Vanek is/was a demon and he's been exiled from hell along with his team who were labeled as traitors and they are actually innocent. Vanek's "job" in hell is torturer of dirty souls. He relished his job but having no memory for awhile he's a little lost. Once he gains part of it back well...being stuck in a human body is weird. He freaks out and with human feelings and reluctantly helping Dylan he starts to have feelings for her and cant help it and kinda hates it at first. The sexy times are hot and naughty and Vanek being a former demon well he's well versed in a woman's body. Dylan cannot help herself! Anyways, his twin brother, Nash and the team they've yet to find them all need to figure out who's behind the coup to force Lucifer out. There are a lot of different plots in the book. Some will be annoyed but since its a series I am ok with it. I do recommend.

A highly interesting story about exiled demons. I really enjoyed the twists and turns the story took. I couldn't put the book down from the first page. I definitely recommend this if you enjoy sexy and naughty demons. The characters themselves were entertaining to say the least. They were fun to read and I enjoyed the tension and romance between the characters. I would love to see what happens next and where the story goes from here. I voluntarily reviewed an arc from the author.
