Read my review of another book in the Possessive Love collection, My Saintly Demon by R.M. Neill.
The idea of an ex-priest explaining kink to a demon should be absurd. As an author, Davison is exactly the blend of spicy and sweet necessary to make it adorable instead. The story in this book is the perfect combination of spicy and sweet itself, making for a quick, enjoyable read that left me smiling, even as it packed in a wallop of emotion within the pages.
The supernatural element is immediately obvious, but I still felt eased into it as I was introduced to Ian and his general circumstances. I was already intrigued by Ian’s character and past from the beginning, but Davison slips the pertinent facts in exactly where needed. The full supernatural reveal also happens quickly, but Brin’s character is set up for it to be entirely in form. The overall pacing of this book was fairly fast, but never in a way that felt rushed.
It’s easy to go into paranormal romance, especially for a relationship between a human and a demon, with assumptions in place. I thoroughly enjoyed the flip here of the human character being the much more settled one. Despite the Daddy kink element, there’s very little of a traditional dynamic between them elsewhere. Brin is a brat but doesn’t have a submissive bone in his body. He just wants to be loved for who he is, and isn’t that what we all want in the end?
