My Thoughts:

I was tempted by the premise of this paranormal romance novel, it sounded fun, the cover is great and I am happy to give a new series a try. Unfortunately within a few chapters I realised it wasn’t going to for me, even though I forced myself to finish the book, determined to give it a chance.
For my tastes there was entirely too much angsty ‘I can’t/I can; I hate/I love’ going on. The heroine was in serious denial about every. single. thing. and there was barely any room for a plot in between the wailing monologues. I also thought was a lot of repetition in both information and phrasing.
The talking cat with the incomprehensible Scottish brogue was a step too far for me. On the up side, I liked several of the minor characters like Kalli and Edie and the idea to feed the demons colloid silver was inspired.
While Demons Like It Hot didn’t work for me, if you are a fan of paranormal romance then take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    The premise sounds good and I am a fan of the genre but this book seems to have serious shortcomings in plot and writing. I don’t think I’ll be eager to read it. Great review, though!

    Darn. I loved that cover, and every now and then I can manage a cat with a Scottish brogue. I might give this one a miss, though!

    What a pity it wasn’t not to your liking. I can understand why though, I don’t like wishy washy characters either.
