She's back! Half angel, half devil Astra Q. Phelps will be turning twenty-five soon and for a Tweener this is called the Settling. Her two halves are battling it out to see what side of her nature she will embrace for the rest of her life and it sets her hormones raging. All she can think about is sex, with any man who crosses her path. Meanwhile her boyfriend Daille, king of the Royal devils is facing opposition to his authority, but Astra's ready for the test and she loves a worthy battle of good versus evil.

This is one sensual and spirited read. Astra is just so spunky and I'm a huge fan when heroines can kick butt just as well as their male counterparts. Her body has become foreign to her as she finds herself constantly fighting her lascivious desires. I love how she worries about her dark half taking over. Daille is one sexy leading man. I have a soft spot for a hero with a bad boy streak and as a ruler of Hell he definitely qualifies. Their sexual chemistry is combustible, they do indeed set off sparks. I want to know where I can get my very own daemon hickey. The interesting secondary characters were unforgettable and just as well developed as the key players. It is the entire cast of colorful characters, both good and bad and the in-between, that make this such an unforgettable story. I loved the tone of this book, while keeping up a fast-paced action it balances the catastrophes with a lightheartedness that kept me chuckling throughout. I can't wait for the next instalment to see what some of these guys get themselves up to next. If you are looking for a steamy paranormal this is it and it proves just why this author has a spot on my must-read list.
