A warrior, a demon, and the girl next door. . .
Looking For Trouble
Addy Corwin is a florist with an attitude. A bad attitude, or so her mama says, cause she’s not looking for a man. Mama’s wrong. Addy has looked. There’s just not much to choose from in Hannah, her small Alabama hometown. Until Brand Dalvahni shows up, a supernaturally sexy, breathtakingly well-built hunk of a warrior from–
well, not from around here, that’s for sure. Mama thinks he might be European or maybe even a Yankee. Brand says he’s from another dimension.
Addy couldn’t care less where he’s from. He’s gorgeous. Serious muscles. Disturbing green eyes. Brand really gets her going. Too bad he’s a whack job. Says he’s come to rescue her from a demon. Puh-lease. But right after Brand shows up, strange things start to happen. Dogs talk and reanimated corpses stalk the quite streets of Hannah. Her mortal enemy Meredith, otherwise known as the Death Starr, breaks out in a severe and inexplicable case of butt boils. Addy might not know what’s going on, but she definitely wants a certain sexy demon hunter by her side when it all goes down . . .
DEMON HUNTING IN DIXIE is a hilarious debut. The humor reminds me of Mary Janice Davidson, Molly Harper, and Michele Bardsley. It is a fun look at a very different southern town. Addy is so much fun. She is a little hard to take seriously, because she doesn’t take much seriously. I love how she curses Meredith, who is truly a witch, with pimples and butt boils. Brand is one sexy hero and very funny too. I love his literal take on everything Addy says. These two shouldn’t fit each other, but they do work. I didn’t really care so much about the “big bad” who was after Addy, I was really just wrapped up in the romance between Addy and Brand. I also didn’t like the way the relationship between Ansgar (another demon hunter) and Evie (Addy’s best friend) ended. It felt like it was a set up for book 2, but I wanted Evie to be as happy as Addy. I will definitely be reading more by this author!
