The Demon in Me by Michelle Rowen

The Demon in Me:
Hell hath no fury…

Fate has led Eden Riley to become a “psychic consultant” to the police, even though her abilities are unreliable at best. Those paranormal powers are about to get her into a jam she couldn’t have predicted. After her hunky police detective partner guns down a serial killer in front of her, Eden realizes that she’s quite literally no longer alone. A voice in her head introduces himself as Darrak. He’s a demon. But not in a bad way!

…like a woman possessed.

Darrak lost his original body 300 years ago thanks to a witch’s curse. This is the first time he’s ever been able to speak directly to a host, plus there’s a bonus. Eden’s psychic energy helps him to take form during daylight hours. He wants to use this chance to find a way to break his curse — finally. Otherwise, Eden’s going to have to learn to live with this sexy demon…like it or not.

And she thinks she might like it.

I always look forward to humor and snark when I read Michelle Rowen’s books, and The Demon in Me was not a disappointment. This is the first of the Living in Eden trilogy, the ending had an unexpected twist and I can tell you that I’m looking forward to moving onto the next book! The characters were smart and sassy, mix that with the right amount of tension and danger, and Michelle creates a fascinating story. This book was fast paced with an incredible plot and kept me interested from the first to the very last page. Michelle gives a new twist on demon possession, a bad demon turns good and a faulty psychic becomes a true believer that there are “other” beings out there hiding among humanity. Eden was a strong heroine who didn’t break down at the first sign of trouble; well, there were a few questionable moments, but she quickly turned her fears into ass-kickery.

Eden becomes possessed by Darrak after a chance encounter with a serial killer, and soon she discovers that she only has one year to live after the possession. Due to Eden’s psychic ability, Darrak is able to communicate with his host for the first time in three hundred years, and with her help he might even be able to break the curse keeping him trapped. They set out to discover the black witch that began Darrak’s imprisonment, but one thing they could never have imagined was their mutual feelings for one another complicating their uneasy relationship.
