There isn’t a monster D’Angelo Kumar can’t destroy or a crisis he can’t manage until he meets Angel Bai. The insane attraction he feels toward the sexy waiter is unwelcome because D’Angelo doesn’t have room in his life for relationships. A solitary path is the only option for a man like him, but fighting his growing feelings for Angel may be the first battle he can’t win.
Angel’s abilities extend beyond memorizing the menu at D’Angelo’s favorite Italian restaurant, but he knows better than to trust anyone with his secret. When a vision reveals that D’Angelo’s life is in danger, he will risk everything to save him. The only thing scarier than monsters and demons to Angel is never knowing D’Angelo’s touch.
To say the demon hunter is reluctant to form a partnership with the psychic is putting it mildly, but D’Angelo needs every advantage he can get when the world’s very existence is threatened. As darkness looms nearer, D’Angelo and Angel’s unexplainable connection grows stronger. For a chance at happiness, the two men will need to call upon unlikely allies for an epic showdown between good and evil.
Sexy, witty, and action-packed, Circle of Darkness is the first book in the Genesis Circle paranormal romance series by Nicholas Bella and Aimee Nicole Walker. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and older.
While both books 1 and 2 are full of magic and adventure, I felt book 1 was a bit more humorous and full of snark.
Book 1 also took the time to do the world building the entire series will rest upon so it does move a bit slower than the second book.
I can’t say I really liked D’Angelo much – he was mostly a pompous ass for the majority of the book – but he does come around and he grew on me a little.
I really didn’t like the name game that the authors played here – I think choosing more distinct names would have made more sense but… that’s just my own taste.

Joel does his usual awesome job of narrating this story which is chock full of characters with unique backgrounds! I totally loved the ‘tude he gave D’Angelo and really made his voice match his personality as written by the authors. Terrific job and definitely the best way to enjoy this story.
