THE DEVIL INSIDE by JENNA BLACK
Back Blurb : ‘… Exorcism isn’t a job, it’s a calling – and a curse. Just ask Morgan Kingsley, a woman who has a stronger aura than any demon. Or so she thought. Now, in a pair of black leather pants and a kick-ass tattoo, Morgan is heading back to Philadelphia after a nasty little exorcism, and her life is about to be turned upside down by the demon that’s gotten inside her. Not just any demon. Six feet five inches of dark, delicious temptation, this one is to die for, that is, if he doesn’t get Morgan killed first. Because while some humans vilify demons and others idolize them, Morgan’s demon is leading a war of succession no human has ever imagined. For a woman trying to live a life, and hold on to the almost-perfect man, being possessed by a gorgeous rebel demon will mean a wild ride of uninhibited thrills, shocking surprises, and pure, unadulterated terror …’
Sentenced in a Sentence :
An interesting flip on the whole possession deal (‘good’ demons are invited in by their hosts, ‘bad’ demons are forcibly exorcised out), Black introduces us to another plucky heroine with a chip on her shoulder and the fire to back it up – unfortunately Kingsley spends more time stoking her smouldering libido than harassing hitch-hiking Hellions.
5 out of 10.
