suspect for murder, and is determined to steal the statue back from the incredibly sexy Drake, who happens to be the powerful leader of the green dragon sept, present at a series of murders but claims his innocence, and is determined to seduce Aisling you can guess to whether she puts up much of a fight on that one She is joined by a collection of odd characters including Amelie, a healer Rene, a taxi driver and Jim, a demon dog.This book was just not good, I don t know any other way to state it The lead character was annoying, her attempts at humor failed miserably and she came off and a rambling idiot the storyline was convoluted at best and so painfully single minded that I was begging for a small side storyline and the supporting characters were all pretty much the same person with a different name Yeah, the lead male was sexy but other than that had few redeeming characteristics and sexy can only take you so far Jim was by far the best character, his snarky sense of humor was the only dialogue that got the smallest of smirks from me.Needless to say, I will not be continuing this series 2.75 Gates of Abbadon StarsRead with Buddies Books and Baubles because after some heavy

totally turn off your brain and that little thing you carry around and call common sense and just go with it.I m not sure that my brain is ever this turned off but overall it isn t a horrible story it just has a TSTL heroine in it I struggle with those Hopefully this book is just to show us how far the heroine is going to come in the end, but so far she make with absolute worst choices Good thing there is a funny demon dog and a Dragon to keep my interest peaked.Aisling Grey is a courier and recently divorced She knew nothing about the supernatural world she is about to be thrown into but when the woman she was supposed to deliver an artifact to is dead on her arrival she learns that everything she thought she knew about the world and her place in it was wrong.So this series has potential but this particular book had so many little pet peavey things for me But as always let s start with the good.JIM The Demon Dog Aisling Accidently Summoned.He is the comic relief and the first to point out that all of her plan sorta suck and almost get them killedbut I forgot that I ve been bound to the Forest Gump of Guardians Lucky, lucky me AndYou re not related to the Three Stooges are you Cause I could swear this escape scene is one of theirs Then there is the fact that the love interest is a Dragon YES a dragon I really am a sucker for most things with Dragons in them They are one of my favorites and even better when they have a human form I will even give props to the fact that even if it is announced that Aising is the Dragon s mate she isn t really having it and pretty much says that it is not happening She might turn into a hormonal, wanton fool when Drake is close by but that doesn t mean she is going to be stuck with himYou are too arrogant for your own good I officiallyde mate you Go away I never want to see you again Except maybe tonight.Naked Your place But after that, no But now to the bad Aisling was so ridiculous She just ran around and bashed through so many different bad scenarios I have a really hard time with TSTL heroines and in this she should have been dead at least three or four times I don t know if it is better or worse that she knows how clueless she is.As for the who done it, that was pretty easy to figure out for the most part Although, I did second guess myself a couple of times So pluses for Jim the Demon Doggie companion and Drake, minuses for Aisling herself and that is huge because she is the MC Hopefully as she grows into maybe learning anything about what a guardian is and does she will be better #BOOK Ã You Slay Me Ð

human form In her job as courier, Aisling is to deliver a precious demonic artifact to a Mme Deauxville in Paris, but she finds Madame freshly dead, surrounded by a circle of ash The artifact is then stolen by the fast talking Drake, who claims that Aisling is no mere courier but in fact a demon lord and his destined mate Determined to play detective, Aisling summons up a demon only to find herself saddled with one, in the form of a slobbering Newfoundland who wants to go walkies Drake wants to show her the way dragons mate, and then bodies seem to pile up all over Paris, making Aisling a corpse magnet and top suspect It s going to take every screwy new ally she s got to solve this murder and adjust to her new life in a strange new world Buddy read with the fantastic UF Wednesday

green eyes Are you unwell You aren t going to vomit on me, are you That wasn t on my list of planned activities for the afternoon, no, but if you really insist, I suppose I could try for a hairball or somethingAisling Grey s first job as a courier should have been easy but Aisling seems to be a magnet for trouble and the supernatural When trying to deliver the package to the client in Paris, she finds said client dead and hanging from the ceiling, a circle of ash on the floor and a sexy stranger who steals her package before she can get answers from him Things only get worse when the police arrives shortly after, Aisling becomes their prime suspect and the only way to prove her innocence is to find Drake Vireo the stranger who stole her package, retrieve it and find the person who murdered her clientFor the most part I really liked Aisling She s hilarious and feisty and I loved that there were times she really stood up to arrogant Drake, even kneeing him in the balls which made me cheer so hard But she had a few TSTL moments or maybe she just really has the worst bad luck which manages to get her into impossible and hilarious situations It also really annoyed me when she acted like a hormone on legs around Drake Yes he s supposedly sexy but why does she get all weak at the knees over him Nothing he did or said made me interested at all in him as her love interestAs a romance reader, as soon as there s any mention of a possible romance my heart perks up right away but I had problems with Aisling and Drake First of all he s a jerk and arrogant which normally doesn t bother me too much as long as he changes towards the heroine or she doesn t let him get away with said arrogance, unfortunately it didn t really happen here and I hated how he didn t care that Aisling was placing herself in danger while trying to prove her innocence Also I know expecting them to have deep feelings for each other would be ridiculous seeing as they ve just met but still I neededthan just mere lust which was all we got from them Hopefully things will develop intowith the next book Whoa, would you look at my package Jim stopped next to the door, doubled over as it looked at its groin I m a demon studmuffin The babes are going to love me oh yes they areMy favorite character of the book was definitely Jim, the demon dog Aisling summoned He used to be a servant of the demon lord Amaymon but after pulling a joke on him that went unappreciated he was pretty much left masterless I loved his strange sense of humor, how he slobbers over everything and the sarcastic banter between him and Aisling had me laughing so hard I also really liked Rene, the taxi driver who wasthan willing to help Aisling in her quest for answersThe world building and plot was really good with Aisling finding out she s a Guardian, a keeper of Hell, a wyvern s mate and trying to prove her innocence to the policeThis book was entertaining and if it wasn t for Drake and the lukewarm romance that did absolutely nothing for me, I would have rated it higher I like the way this author writes, how hilarious Aisling and Jim was and I m looking forward to seeing what will happen with them next Aisling Grey, the heroine of this series, is a ditz She s also a Guardian and a wyvern s mate Don t worry if you don t know what that means Aisling doesn t either Generally speaking, I can t stand ditzes But every once in awhile one crosses my path who I can t help but love I had a very lovable ditzy friend in college And another nice ditz is dating someone I know and hopefully he marries her someday From a bookish standpoint, Bridget Jones is another fantastic ditz And if you ve read Aisling Grey, the heroine of this series, is a ditz She s also a Guardian and a wyvern s mate Don t worry if you don t know what that means Aisling doesn t either Generally speaking, I can t stand ditzes But every once in awhile one crosses my path who I can t help but love I had a very lovable ditzy friend in college And another nice ditz is dating someone I know and hopefully he marries her someday From a bookish standpoint, Bridget Jones is another fantastic ditz And if you ve read and enjoyed Karen Marie Moning s Fever Series, you probably love that ditzy MacKayla Lane just as much as I do Aisling Grey is also a lovable ditz.And the fact that she has no idea WTF is going on works extremely well for the first novel in this series where demons, mages and dragons who look like incredibly sexy human men are a fact of life So the reader learns about this world at the same time as the main character a wyvern is a dragon and a Guardian guards a portal to hell, among other things, by the way Aisling is 31 years old, newly divorced, strapped for cash and working as a courier for her uncle s company, which deals in rare artifacts Her first assignment is to deliver a dragon statue to an eccentric woman in Paris But when Aisling arrives at the woman s house, she discovers that her contact has been murdered in a bizarre demon ritual And as if that wasn t bad enough, the priceless dragon statue was stolen by a handsome man Aisling then hits a very slippery slope downwards into the Otherworld of Paris, finds out she s now a murder suspect and conjures her first demon I m glad this was the first book in a series and I m very much looking forward to Aisling s antics in the following books Light and fluffy buddy read with the Wednesday UF Group of BB B.If you like smart and assertive female leads this book is not for you If you like adult talk and by that I mean not using toddler words this book is not for you If you like to skip eyerolling until your eyes hurt this book is not for you.Aisling Grey almost made me bash my head in The poor woman is a natural disaster and I wonder how she s managed to survive to her late 30ies She s clueless but at least she s aware of it Howe Light and fluffy buddy read with the Wednesday UF Group of BBB.If you like smart

adore him and he I refuse to call him it because it s apparent he identifies as a he is the reason why I will give the second book a try 3.5 starsThis was a fun little romp The best character was definitely Jim The story was slightly predictable, but the fun levels overrode some of that for me so I enjoyed it I like the world I like Drake I love Jim I really like Rene I m curious forabout the Guardians.Thus, overall, a decent read Not bad for light and fluffy PNR.

The supporting cast usually my favorite aspect of a book of this nature was great Jim the talking demon dog sidekick was such a kick, with his particular brand wry and dirty lol humor I m glad he s there to humorously point out some of Aisling s behavior Drake, the love interest, is another great addition, bringing a much needed balance to Aisling s antics He s not a perfect person, however a good thing in my book , and provides a wonderfully mysterious aspect to Ms Grey s life A wonderfully sexy aspect, too tee hee Now, there were parts of the storyin the first half that seemed a bit too cliche to me, particularly the series of events leading up to and immediately following the first murder pinned on Aisling As the tale progressed though, so too did the feeling that the book was a bit unique As a first book, that s good enough for me because it means there s hope for subsequent books Speaking of subsequent books, I so enjoyed the story s end which indeed made it clear that there s lots of fun ahead that I went out the next morning and got book two 3.44 A Buddy Read with my family BB BAnother Wednesday, another UF read for our little group This is an older series we decided to

Wednesday, another UF read for our little group This is an older series we decided to tackle because we needed something lighter and fluffier these days Real Life has been difficult for many of us and our reading should not make it even harder This is why, a series about a ditsy female who is aware of her not so impressive brain power and doesn t claim any, who stumbles upon a murder while trying to make a delivery and gets tangled up in the Dark Esoteric Underworld of Paris, seemed like a good idea And for the purpose we embarked on reading it, it fit perfectly However, we forget easily that books meant as a light distraction are often just that and when our usual reads are ofcomplex nature, the light and fluffy could feel a bit to lightDon t get me wrong, I enjoyed getting to know the clueless Aisling Gray, a delivery girl on her first day at the job, tasked with getting a priceless artifact from Seattle, USA to Paris, France The only other thing we know about her is that she has a surfer ex and her hobby is reading about Demons and Magic, in it is kind of cool sort of hobby like way So imagine her horror to find the intended recipient of the artifact in a demon summoning circle and a gorgeous mysterious stranger steals the package right out of her hands Then the turns out and makes her the prime murder suspect Her time in Paris doesn t resemble anything she would have wished it to be On top of police chases, we get to meet some Dragons in human form, weakens, demons, a very cool taxy driver, and the best character of them all Jim, the talking Newfoundlander I was ready to adopt him after his first sentence, it was love at first sight sound He completely saved the book for me and the main reason I plan to continue with the series As I said, it lived up to the expectation of being light and fluffyNow I wish you all Happy Reading and many wonderful books to come I honestly cannot believe I found this book so enjoyable It s been sitting on my shelf since those long ago days before I d read a million and one different paranormal romance and or urban fantasy stories I bought it back when I was rather new to the genres and I used to be all sexy vampires, quirky heroine, supernatural mystery whatcould you possibly want from a novel Since then I ve come to realise that a whole lot of the PNR UF world is kind of, well shite.But I have been surp I honestly cannot believe I found this book so enjoyable It s been sitting on my shelf since those long ago days before I d read a million and one different paranormal romance and or urban fantasy stories I bought it back when I was rather new to the genres and I used to be all sexy vampires, quirky heroine, supernatural mystery whatcould you possibly want from a novel Since then I ve come to realise that a whole lot of the PNR UF world is kind of, well shite.But I have been surprised here today I read this as a buddy read to go with my July Pick It For Me challenge and I have Mountain Kat to thank for finally getting me to give in to this book It s a really fun, sexy and entertaining read For me, it just stood out amongst so many others of its kind that I ve read because everything worked the strong heroine, the sexy hero guy, the mythology, the humour and it even had a talking demon dog I can t lie here, the novel completely had me the moment we were introduced to a talking demon Newfoundland called Jim It s less ridiculous than it sounds in the actual novel, I swear.Aisling is a great character she s the girl you want to be friends with but also the girl you want fighting on your team Even though she had the hots for Drake ever since he sauntered in all his dark and sexiness, she still doesn t take any crap from him Drake s this dragon guy in human form that everyone fears because of his power but Aisling refuses his advances with a swift knee to the groin, a poke in the eye and a good whacking round the head with a solid gold and priceless artifact But all is made up later against the wall I really enjoyed Katie MacAlister s balance of witty banter and humour with the well developed mythology going on behind it all It s also one of very few PNR UF novels that made me think must acquire next book now I ve missed that feeling Anyway, this book won t be for everyone but it definitely rang my bell I mean, come on, a talking demon dog called Jim
