Publisher's Summary

Alex always knew romance would be complicated. When love came into his life with wings and horns, he knew those complications would be a little unusual. Four months after meeting Rachel and Lorelei, Alex finally has a handle on divine visitations, supernatural enemies, and the echoes of reincarnation. He might even survive bringing an angel and a demon home for Christmas with the family.

He might not survive what comes next. A favor for friends brings Alex into a heated feud among Seattle's sorcerers. The lords of Hell aren't pleased with the chaos wrought by Lorelei's escape, and they're looking for payback. Worst of all, her angry ex-boyfriend has blown into town...and he just happens to be the Angel of Death.

ok first off, Tess Irondale ROCKS!!! One the best narrators I have heard she has narrated all of the Good Intentions books and is just amazing. Now to the book, enjoyed the continued adventures of the crew, and the further development of the characters can't wait for book 4

Guilty pleasure with a great storyline

I've come to truly love and look forward to this series from Elliot Kay. The story line is fast-paced, well thought out and exciting. His characters have a sense of believe-ability and depth that comes from doing great character development work. The interconnections between characters is deep and well done (pun intended) and is one of the most important aspects of the story line.

Tess Irondale is an amazing narrator with a great range of vocal talents and voices that really put one into the story. She shifts flawlessly from character to character and makes each of these books come to life. Favorite narrator EVER!

really enjoyable audiobook

What did you love best about Personal Demons?

I like the series, and have grown to enjoy the characters. This one isn't as long as the predecessors but I did enjoy it a lot. It definitely doesn't focus so much on the sex in this one which was nice. Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of sexuality in this book, it's just not as raunchy as the first couple of books in the series.

Any additional comments?

I really have enjoyed this whole series. I would say this is probably my favorite book in the series, because it is not as sexually focused and potentially sets up some interesting futures for the protagonists.

Amazing!

Once again Kay delights us with a tale of sexy supernatural wonder. I feel like this book is a tipping point for this series. We're past all of the novelty of sexy fun time and really getting into the meat of the universe. We get to see Hell and the various rulers there of to a far greater extent than at any time before. New dangers arise from totally unexpected directions. Lorelei and Rachel are forced to make extremely difficult choices as their relationship with each other and with Alex continues to evolve. Tess Irondale does, as always, an amazing job voicing the story.

All in all, the best book yet in this universe. There's a pretty good sequel hook at the end that rose organically from the story. I cannot wait to see where Kay takes this world. No matter what, it's going to be a hell of a ride.

Back At It Again

When I saw the option to pre-order this book pop up I was ecstatic. This has been another welcome opportunity to travel along with these wonderful characters, brought to life by both Elliot and Tess! I couldn't stop listening.

Honestly, my only real disappointment was with the lack of appearance by the characters introduced in "Tales of High Adventure" which I highly recommend to any who missed it.

Thank you once again Tess for your incredible performance and unbelievable vocal range. I can only hope that Elliot continues to share these stories with us.

Most disappointing of the three

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes if they had read the previous two but only when they had nothing else to read at the time.

Would you be willing to try another book from Elliott Kay? Why or why not?

Yes, but hesitantly.

Which character – as performed by Tess Irondale – was your favorite?

Rachel has always been my favorite but she does not get enough time on the page we spend way too much time with Lorelei.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It takes a devil to defeat a devil

Any additional comments?

I have become more and more disillusioned with Lorelei and personally think that the relationship between her and the others is not equal. She does not discuss decisions she just does it and expects all to understand and support her, now that she is not bound if I was the protagonist I would leave her as this is not an equal relationship she has all of the control and authority and always has.

Wait, what?

The entire premise of this story is fantastic. The willingness of the author to confront taboo and completely flip things on their head is fantastic. But the way it is written is confusing and frustrating. There is a lot of references to previous events that are not clarified at all. And as an avid reader, I need a little reminder here or there so that I don't lose track of the story. Of course, the issue also is that I have not read the previous books, and when I bought this it was not labeled as being part of a series or even which number in the series it was. That is more Audible's fault than anything. But it is important for the author to make sure that if such an event occurs that the reader does not feel completely lost. The best books I have read are those where, while they are in a series, the reader is able to understand at least the basics of previous events without feeling too lost. So in the end, I enjoyed it, but I still felt like it could have been better.

Another great work

An excellent installment to Kay's "Good Intentions" universe with some surprises. I can't wait to see if there's another installment to the story.

Brilliant addition to the series

Have listened to both of the books in the series so far which are both fantastic and this is a worthy addition.
Tess Ironside brings all of the characters to life together with a story that captivates this is an excellent book.
I cannot wait for the next instalment.
