Demon’s Wish by Xenia Melzer

Link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/56144105-demon-s-wish

Blurb: Finding love is hard—especially when you’re a demon and your potential mate is your sacrifice…

Sammy is content with running his bookshop and leading a book club consisting solely of paranormal creatures. Despite the persistence of his friends, he has resolved himself to a life without romance, since he doesn’t think anybody could find him and his tendency to spill useless knowledge whenever he gets nervous attractive.

Dresalantion is a demon prince and slightly—make that majorly—annoyed when somebody persistently tries to summon him. He finally decides to show up and put the fear of Dresalantion into his summoners but finds himself rescuing their sacrifice instead.

Sammy intrigues him from the get-go, and when Dre realizes that Sammy can get him the manga he’s been hunting for months—not to mention that he refuses a wish he offered him—the sexy demon decides to get to know this fascinating man better. Much better.

Review: I loved this story! Dre, a demon prince has been summoned, (via a potential human sacrifice), to do the bidding of some misguided kids – he soon sets them straight! The sacrifice, Sammy, is quick to realise that he’s in a bit of a predicament, what with facing off with a demon. However, Dre surprises both Sammy and himself by wanting to get to know Sammy better.
Sammy is a nerdy delight – he’s smart, unconsciously funny, full of trivia, which happens to be Dre’s favourite thing. I loved everything about the story – the banter, the friendship/dating thing both men had going on and some of the secondary characters, like the members of Sammy’s book club. I started to highlight some of my favourite lines, but I would have ended up highlighting the entire book!
Definitely one of my new favourite books!

Recent Release: The Captain and the Best Man (Captivating Captains #4) by Catherine Curzon and Eleanor Harkstead

Blurb:

Review: While I enjoyed the story overall, I did find it to be a little sweet and slightly improbable – but hey, we read to escape mundane reality and this does it well.
When Guy and Josh meet, there is pretty much an instant attraction between them. They flirt and banter almost immediately, which is fun. When it turns out that they are bound for the same place, they are all over each other, and this is where the story became a little less fun for me. To me they were a little over the top in expressing how attracted they were to each other – Josh especially – there was a lot of ‘how handsome the captain is’, ‘how capable the captain is’ (just a lot of ‘captain’ awe).
The family drama added a welcome bite to the saccharin sweetness of the story.
Overall, the story held my interest and was a good to spend a couple of hours.
