Add to Goodreads        Buy: Nook/Kindle

Gothic outcast Natalie Sugarman bartered her soul for her dying mother’s life sixteen years ago to a boy demon that could stop time. Now, days before her twenty-first birthday, the lifelines on her palms are slowly vanishing, and she knows it’s just a matter of time before Satan’s little helper collects.

Natalie's tried numerous times to kill the demon and regain control of her soul’s destiny, but she always falls short. When she decides to try and gain the element of surprise for her next attempt, Natalie seeks answers about his location from a freaky, glowing-eyed fortuneteller. Creeped out by the psychic’s methods, she bolts from the reading and misses the warning that the demon who stole her soul is always closer than she thinks.

After some strange incidents with her new boyfriend, including a hot, levitating sex session, she realizes he’s the grown-up version of her little nightmare and he’s returned to collect on their deal. Natalie must figure out how to win her soul back from the demon before her lifeline completely disappears and she becomes his forever—even if that means making a deal to damn three other souls to take her place.

Kim's Review:

A love story with a demonic twist...

I am not usually into demons...I have not even been reading much paranormal. But seriously, Michelle Valentine totally sucked me in with this one!

Maybe it is because not only is it a thrilling story about demons, but it also has a love story, mystery, suspense, complex characters, and an intriguing plotline. There is a love triangle, college-age angst, and a demon issue. Nat has a pesky little problem since she has been marked by a demon since she was a a child and is supposed to give up her soul and belong to him once she turns 21. Of course that time is fast approaching. 

The demon always kills them. Not once has he ever left a person who made a deal alive. Not one, except me.
This book had so many twists and turns. It kept me up late two nights in a row and had me grasping my kindle hard. It changes and morphs and just when you think you you have it all figured it out, it mutates again.

Nat is misunderstood, ostracized, unpopular insecure, strong, resourceful, but lives in fear of the demon coming for her. She has been dealing with these issues her whole life and mostly suffering alone. But two young men end up involved in the chaos that is her life. 

Rick was the perfect mix of nice, naughty and bad boy. He was sweet, loving, protective, and accepting of Nat. He was supportive and inspired her. They have electric chemistry together. But he does have a few secrets. I loved him and Nat together and was really hoping they could work out all of their issues.

The tattoos on his right arm are the only thing about him that screams I am a bad boy. Well, that and the little smirk he does that makes me swoon a little every time, His dark hair hangs loose and frames his handsome face. He wears the bad boy, surfer hair look well.

"Shut up. I'm serious. I'm really damned."
"Not if I can help it. I'll help get you off the naughty list."

Stewart was the golden boy with a soft heart but asshole edge. They have a shared past and magnetic pull. But He had his own issues to deal with. 

He's like perky golden sunshine while I am an overpowering eclipse.

Stewart and Rick are polar opposites, but I'm drawn to both. One pushes my commitment away, while the other can't wait to be together.

I honestly do not want to say too much because I do not want to give anything away(Do not read the full book description on Goodreads...trust me it is more fun if you do not). There are so many surprises, secrets, plot twists, and things that interconnect in ways you do not expect. It would ruin the book if you knew them ahead of time. I can honestly admit that I was sending Michelle PMs threatening to send my demon chihuahua to her door if this book did not turn out in a way that I was happy with. lol. 

At the heart of this book is a love story...really two love stories since Nat has to decide between the two boys. It's also a race to save Nat's soul and keep the demons at bay. There is drama, danger, excitement, mystery, passion, and love. 

And even though there is resolution at the end of the book, there is definitely more story to tell with these characters. I heard a rumor from a very reliable source that there will probably be a book 2 in this series. I will totally read it to see where their stories lead. I highly recommend this book even if demons are out of your comfort zone. Because this is one hot, turbulent, demon drama!

Thanks to Michelle Valentine for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
