Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Demon's Fall by Karalynn Lee

She was an angel at the gates of Hell.
When Kenan, an incubus, finds a caged angel for sale in the Hellsgate marketplace, he sees her as a challenge. Certain that his skills in seduction will work as well on a heavenly creature as they do on mortal women, he buys Jahel, intent on having her soul as a novelty in his collection.
Knowing he must gain Jahel's trust if she is to come to his bed willingly, Kenan treats her more as his guest than as his slave. When she reveals what brought her to the mouth of Hell in the first place—retrieving the soul of a young girl she was guarding—he even offers to help her complete her mission.
Though he has promised Jahel freedom, Kenan soon realizes she has captured his heart instead. And as their passion for one another grows, they find themselves caught in a struggle between Heaven and Hell, one that will lead them to the very edge of the apocalypse...(courtesy of Amazon)

Sinfully, sexy story - just the way we like them. I was very impressed with Karalynn Lee's book Demon's Fall.

Lee's taken the best of both worlds and crashed them into one book, then topped it off with some hot, seductive scenes.  Definitely not afraid to give us what we crave and are often too afraid to admit it (well, not Amy and I though.) Angels are cocky, but not prude, a definitely livable representation.  When our beautiful Jahel is captured, she wants only to be free to finish her task.  Lee's set up an innocence in Jahel, to do the right thing, but that doesn't interfere with her desires.  And isn't that how it should be... 

Lee doesn't leave us with just a 'dirty angel', she has also given us the mystery to unfold of who is trying to start the armageddon and what is Jahel's involvement.  Enthralling ride through the story.  Of course, we can't forget Kenan, who I felt was my average next door demon, an incubi just doing what he does best...and it certainly seemed that way.  

While you can't have Angels and Demons with out representation of Heaven and Hell, Lee has taken great efforts to do that right as well.  Perfectly, not over religious, just a wonderful fantasy read; quick, hot and thorough.

  1. Thank you for your review! I'm so glad to hear that Jahel and Kenan struck you as believable characters for what they were -- an angel with desires and a "next-door" incubus were exactly what I was wanted to write about. And their chemistry, of course! ;)
