I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one.
To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now.
This book was given to me for an honest review.
So this book started out just the way I like it, the first sentence had the word "f*cking" in it and there ya go. I may have been a little hooked from there. But seriously, I was all into how this book first starts out. You get to meet rock star hellion Trevor Sands. He was just oh so yummy right from the start, all I was waiting on was to find out he had tattoos and I would soon be sending out wedding invitations. Get ready to check your mail ladies and gentlemen, he has tattoos! You slowly start to learn through little hints and actions that he isn't your ordinary everyday cocky rock star but he's a demon. I loved how the author brought in some things from Greek mythology to tell a little about his background throughout the book. Let's just say he is a special guy with some special friends who has been around for thousands of years. And although he may be considered a legend, there were still legends told to them. As legend put it, there was a Muse created for every demon. Once this Muse was found the demon could only feed from them and they would become just like the demon and use the elements for their advantage. But in all those years none had found the one and just agreed it was all a story told around a fire. That is until Misty walks into one of his surprise concerts, totally throwing his world into a tailspin. Now Misty was just your everyday person trying to live day to day in a world that she feels she has never really lived in. That is until the day she decides to take a step outside the box and finally live for one night. After years of obsessing over Trevor and feeling like he wrote his songs for her, she finally goes to his show. And there she learns it was the best decision she has ever made. After a night of demons, wild sex, turmning fist into stone, fighting things that you thought never existed and learning you are way more than you ever thought, she realizes she can never go back to a life she once thought she was living to the fullest.
So as you can tell I may be crushing a little on Trevor, I really did like him. He was cocky, tattooed, growly and the man had horns. Plus he talked like a man who hasn't slept in days lol. I loved the ramblings that came from his mouth sometimes. Sadly though as the story went on, he got on my nerves. He became very repetitive, he seemed to say the exact same thing but made it look different by twisting the words around. Ehh. The same went for Misty, I liked her at first but then she just drove me nuts. She went from being somewhat unbelieving of the situation to being all "Rah! Rah!" about it in a matter of minutes. She just became so fake all of a sudden. Is it bad that I was kind of hoping when that thing jumped out of the window with her, it decide to eat her? What's sad is I seemed to like her best friend Kim more than her. Now that girl was hilarious. But the things that really grabbed a hold of me were the sex and the cussing. The first time these two were together, whew it was just hot. Like mouth watering, grab me some ice and lets go sit in front of an air conditioner hot. Grrrrrr. The other time, it was so so. Yeah, that is correct, they only had sex two times. I mean that's not terrible but I just expected more from a demon and his Muse lol
Overall I thought the story was ok. I liked the characters at first, later on I kind of hoped they got eaten by the bad guys and their dog. And the story started off great but again it just kind of went bye bye for me. These guys just seemed to perfect, everything worked out to quickly. to easily. Yeah they were down and you may think they were about to lose but it lasted for about 5 seconds then everything was peachy. There just wasn't enough action to the action. And the bad guys were kind of blah. I mean a smoke cage and a smoke blade? Ehhh I just couldn't see it working against a demon. There wasn't enough shock and awe for me. Now I will say the writing was interesting, at times I felt like I should be listening to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon while watching the Wizard of Oz. It was very trippy lol. Maybe someone channeled Edgar Allen Poe. And of course the weird side of me liked it. I also liked the songs that Trevor sang. So hot sex, odd interesting writing, so so characters and so so story led me to the book being a 3 ringer.
My song for this book: Change by Deftones.
