Publisher's Summary

After a difficult childhood and a turbulent stint in the military, Declan Burke finally got his act together. Now he’s a battle-hardened professional bodyguard who takes his job at McKay-Taggart seriously and his playtime - and his playmates - just as seriously. One thing he never does, however, is mix business with pleasure. But when the mysterious, gorgeous Suzanne D’Angelo needs his protection from a stalker, his desire for her burns out of control, tempting him to break all the rules…even as he’s drawn into a dark, dangerous world he didn’t know existed.   

Suzanne is an earthbound angel on her critical first mission: protecting Declan from an emerging supernatural threat at all costs. To keep him close, she hires him as her bodyguard. It doesn’t take long for her to realize that she’s in over her head, defenseless against this devastatingly sexy human who makes her crave his forbidden touch.   

Together they’ll have to draw on every ounce of their collective training to resist each other as the enemy closes in, but soon it becomes apparent that nothing could have prepared them for the menace to their lives…or their hearts.

Demons, Angels... not your typical Taggart stuff

I was expecting more of the McKay-Taggart stuff... and that was my mistake. As this book is not by Lexi. I realized this later.

This book is about demons, angels, superpowers and supernatural. Nothing close to what I was expecting in the series.

Having said that, I suppose I could like this type of book but I found it really slow. And, having to learn new terminology was a bit too much.

I will give it a better rating because I picked this book by mistake. Overall, this book didn't really appeal to me. Too slow. Sorry.

Angel in the Kitchen.

Another sexy shorter story. I was a little worried when they brought the torture chamber out that this was going to be more of a bdsm story, but thankfully it is not, just a bit of sexy play. I like Larissa Ione’s shorter stories, but I’m looking forward to a longer series that has a more in depth story line like the Demonica or the Horseman. I would even be interested in more of her Moonbound Clan series. Narrator is sexy.

Hated the heroine

The heroine was stupid and clingy and needy. She made bad choices and was such a pushover, it drove me insane. She was extremely naive. How is an ANGEL whose lived as long as her and lived on the literal place we call hell that naive? Gtfo of here. Also, one of my biggest pet peeves is when a woman refers to having sex for the first time to someone they barely know as "making love". It's like someone bringing up how many kids someone else wants to have after their 1st intimate moment. Cringey.

The BDSM scene was cringey af! The reason for it was stupid. It felt unnatural. BDSM is fine when the sub is strong outside of the bedroom, but she was a weak nitwit outside of it so in a BDSM scenario it was just cringey.

She acts like they're bffs or spouses after 1 day of hanging out. It was just all so cringey.

It would've been great with a better heroine who wasn't completely obsessive over the hero.

Disappointed

Story started out OK but soon devolved into a circus mess. I quickly tired of ridiculous names and made up words. I am not usually an eye roller, but didn't realize how much range of motion they had when called on. As usual, Mr. West's cadence is too slow and needed to speed up in order to listen without going to sleep. Which I did due to silly plot. Even Big Tag's minimal presence couldn't save this book.

Good book.

I only listened to this book because I LOVE Lexi Blake's Master and Mercenary series and thought I would give it a try. I really enjoyed this book. I may give the others in the series a try, I'm kind of curious as to what will happen with other characters.

Introduction to a new series for me

I am a long time fan of the Masters and Mercenaries series, but I had never tried any of the Demonica Underwold series. While I would not generally my cup of tea, I did find this story fascinating and compelling. I really found Suzanne and Declan a wonderful couple. Hawkyn, Cipher, and Sexy were also fun characters. I will try a couple more of these stories as I definitely want to know what happened with Cipher.

Fun mix

When demons and angels meet masters and mercenaries this is what you get.
Well done and great performance!

Very entertaining romance

This is my first book by Ms Ione, I listened to it as part of the Crossover from Masters & Mercenaries. I love paranormal but not big on demons, however, the characters were so interesting that it kept me entertained. I loved her hot love scenes. Definitely worth listening to.

Very slow

The book didn't start getting good until the last 10 chapters. I honestly skipped the where they reveal everything and didn't feel like I missed anything. It felt drawn out

Entertaining!

The narrator did a good job and fits the characters a little better than the narrators for the previous books in this series. Both have good performances and I’d recommend listening.

I liked the premise of Suzanne being the guardian angel to Declan, and her going undercover as an heiress in need of a bodyguard to keep a majorly violent demon from killing Declan. Declan is totally unaware of the supernatural, so that’s always fun waiting for the big reveal to happen. I didn’t like that Suzanne lied about things she didn’t need to lie about, and she keeps trying to hide her secrets even though it’s pretty obvious things aren’t right.

The chemistry between Declan and Suzanne is great and they are really sweet with each other. I’m not a huge fan of the BDSM type stuff though. There was a weird random mention of Declan going to some swingers party; not by his choice, but then he said he slept with some random woman there; it was all just gross and unnecessary to the story.

All the demon stuff is awesome and I like the angel stuff. All of these angels are very far from angelic. Some fun action and humor too. Looking forward to reading the next book(s)!
