When it turns out your ex was actually a sexy demon sent by the devil to seduce you to evil, you'd think the next guy, no matter what he's like, couldn't be a worse decision. Enter Father Marc Angeletti, a smooth talking piece of forbidden fruit with onyx eyes and a razor wit, and Riona Dade may as well start packing her luggage for damnation now. But come Hell or... well, Hell, Marc, Riona, and demigod Dee Zitka have a mission: serve as a Pure Soul and vanquish Lucifer's minion scum from the face of the Earth to protect humanity from evil.

Oh, and don't get seduced into sin yourself, because a fallen Pure Soul is one of Lucifer's biggest thrills. As long as Riona and Marc can keep things professional and north of the sheets, no problem, right?

Yeah, that worked out great in the Thornbirds, too...

My Review -

First off I have to say the beginning of the book had me laughing out loud as the author demonstrates her sense of humour by starting off with the line "a priest, a witch and a demigod walk into a bar." Right off the bat I knew this was going to be a different paranormal book and it was.

I was instantly drawn to the idea of a tough, alpha, sexy priest fighting beside a witch and a demigod against the forces of evil and Satan himself. The thing I kept wondering was how long would it take before temptation would grip Riona and Marc and lead them to their fall. Oh and I cannot forget the deliciously handsome and talented demon Jerry thrown into the mix. There were times I didn't know who I wanted Riona to end up with, but she too didn't know which she desired more.

The only thing that bothered me about the story was Riona herself. She would state that she had the hots for one person and in the next scene she is getting hot and heavy with someone else, whether it was with the priest, Jerry the demon or her sexy female neighbour. She would state her deep feelings for someone and in the next breath her libido is in overdrive and she is making out with someone else. I just didn't feel her feelings were sincere or strongly developed.

The story had lots happening in terms of the twists and turns that occurred and despite my feelings for Riona I really want to know what is going to happening next and who is going to win her heart. Unfortunately the ending leaves the reader with a slight cliffhanger where you feel like saying "oh you can't leave me wondering like this" but it does. With Satan playing a game and pulling strings to lead himself to the ultimate victory, I personally can't wait to see what happens in book 2 and how Riona will face off with him.

I highly recommend this book to paranormal romance fans who enjoy snarky comments, humourous lines and cliches and most of all delicious hunks who would sacrifice everything, even their own lives, to prove their love for the woman that sets them of fire.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
