Hey y’all…happy Throwback Thursday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! I didn’t dress up this year. Since Mr. A. is so sick, I stayed at home with him. But all of my Things (and Thing 1’s girlfriend) made their costumes and went trick or treating together. Did my heart good!😍
Throwback Thursday is a meme where I can share some oldies but goodies…books that are older than a year and have been sitting on my TBR for awhile or books that I’ve read & enjoyed, often from my READ AGAIN E-SHELF. I’ve seen this meme floating around for awhile now so I finally decided to jump on board. Thanks to Renee @ It’s Book Talk who started this meme…if you get a chance, go check out her blog!
Here’s one more paranormal throwback! I just read it like two weeks ago but it had been on my TBR for awhile so…

Don’t make the devil angry…
Luke Thorne loves having one hell of a good time. As the ruler of every dark creature to walk the earth, he certainly has more than a bit of a bad side. He lives for danger and isn’t the type to lose his heart—mostly because he doesn’t have one. Then she walks into his life.
Mina James is seduction in the flesh, a perfect temptation that the devil himself couldn’t pass up. Too late, Luke realizes he’s let a real siren into his life, a woman who is bent on using his dark powers to free herself from hidden enemies. Since Luke isn’t the type of man to be used, he should walk away from her, but…something about Mina draws him close.
Soon he’s realizing that she isn’t who she appears to be. Not dark and cold, but burning red hot. Mina is a woman fighting for her life—and the Lord of the Dark suddenly finds himself in an unlikely role…hero. Luke isn’t going to let her enemies destroy Mina. He will fight heaven and hell to keep her. But in the end, the secrets they both carry may just rip apart a love that should never have been…
There are Bad Things in the world…very, very bad. Are you ready for them?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE is book 1 in the Bad Things series. It’s a paranormal romance with a touch of suspense.
Luke Thorne is the Lord of Darkness. He’s the ruler over every dark paranormal creature in existence. So when he meets a little siren with an attitude, Luke is immediately intrigued. Especially when Mina James almost succeeds in tricking him into giving her a special jewel. Mina is equally enticed by Luke but she needs his help and she can’t afford to let sexual tension get in the way. What do you do when you’re attracted to someone you shouldn’t be?
What a fantastical start to a series! This story seemed to have just a bit of everything in it: all kinds of supernatural beasts, a hot billionaire, a spicy romance, a bit of mystery, a dash of suspense and a whole lot of action. WHEW, what a recipe! I adored the paranormal-ness of it. I loved all of the mystical characters, the myths and the legends (or were they?). It definitely made for some interesting characters. I plowed through this story in almost one sitting, it was just one of those easy, fun reads.
I already mentioned the hot billionaire, Luke. He was dark and delish, a wicked reprobate. Luke was the Lord of Darkness so of course he was alpha as hell («– no pun intended) but still charming in a devilish way. Mina seemed like his exact opposite when really, she was the cheese to his macaroni. She was sweet, loving, caring but Mina was exactly what Luke needed! Can you picture the ultimate bad boy falling for a darling sweetie pie? That’s one of my favorite tropes!
Honestly, this isn’t one of those books with an intricate plot or a bunch of drama. But it is a good book to relax with when you just need a break for a little while! Told from multiple POVs with a happy ever after. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
Have you read this one? Enjoy y’all!
