I Married a Demon Review

Jennifer Randall works as a Protector for The Society protecting mortals from Otherworlders. But sometimes her radar for detecting Otherworlders isn’t always right. After numerous tragic mistakes, Jennifer’s boss sends her on a mandatory vacation for her to get her mind straight. Constantly thinking mortals are demons, ghouls, gargoyles or other creatures when they’re not and then attacking them is just not acceptable when working for The Society for the Protection of Mortals and Control of Supernatural Beings.

While on vacation Jennifer meets an extremely sexy man named Blake Barrington and quickly rushes off to marry him. She’s fallen in lust and love with him so quickly that she might have blinders on about who he really is. Despite the obvious signs, Jennifer ignores her instincts that her husband could possibly be a demon. Afterall, she has been wrong so many times, who knows if she can trust her senses anymore.

But when other people confirm her suspicion, Jennifer is in big trouble. Her job is to protect mortals from people like her husband. Protectors who work for The Society can’t marry demons! But without knowing for sure if Blake is a demon or not, she starts to investigate him a little closer to uncover the truth.

In the meantime, Jennifer is on a mission for The Society to find The Bracelet of Invincibility. It was somehow stolen and they need it back before it lands in the wrong hands. With the help of a smart-alecky, cowboy imaged, sidekick/electronic device - named Partner, Jennifer must get her hands on The Bracelet before the demons get it. Will Jennifer end up battling her own husband to protect the mortals or will her instincts once again tell her she was wrong and he is not a demon?

I MARRIED A DEMON is a hilarious, action packed, paranormal romance that I found impossible to put down. Jennifer is a sarcastic, self deprecating, kind of person that had me laughing so hard from the minute I was introduced to her. The story is told in first person point of view (my favorite point of view) and this gives the reader a close intimate place in Jennifer’s head and what she’s going through.

At the beginning of the book there was very little dialogue, a lot of erotica, and then the story seemed to turn Sci - Fi with Jennifer visiting The Society. I loved the author’s writing but I was starting to worry that this book was all over the place and almost stopped reading it. But I kept going and I am so glad I did. The story really found its place and flowed a lot better once Jennifer got going on her mission.

Partner’s character was written so well and was one of my favorite parts of the book. If you could picture a telephone with a screen saver of a cowboy that is animated according to what is going on, that is Partner. He’s Jennifer’s sidekick and a device The Society gave her to help her out. He acts like a real person and is always saying the funniest things and arguing with Jennifer.

All of the Otherworlders were a delight; every character brought something to this story. I would compare the humor, storyline, and characters to the style of Angie Fox and Dakota Cassidy. So if you adore books by those authors, I would definitely recommend I Married a Demon by Beverly Rae.

I was very sad to finish this book as I have been enjoying a little each day and miss it now that I am done. Overall, I Married a Demon is a wonderful, laugh out loud, suspenseful story that I absolutely adored and I think you will too!
