A Demon Made me do it by Penelope King. Published May 27, 20111 by Ascension Press. FREE on Amazon.
Some girls share clothes, a bathroom, or a bedroom. Seventeen-year-old Liora Greyson has to share, too. Only she shares her body–with a demon.
Liora just wants to survive her final year of high school unscathed, her dark secret intact. But the walls she’s carefully constructed to keep people away crack wide open once she meets the sexy and mysterious Kieron, and he lights her world on fire. She can’t let him know she transforms into a demon named “Lucky” at nightfall—a demon with an entirely separate personality who passes out Torment, Justice, and Revenge like Halloween candy.
Turns out Kieron is the one who should be afraid once Lucky discovers his true identity and motivations. Liora wants to love him, but Lucky thinks he’s public enemy number one. And having a demon with a vendetta show up during a romantic date puts a serious crimp in any relationship.
Fighting your demons is one thing. Having one that fights back, messes with your guy, and leaves you with nasty hangovers is quite another.
Being bad has never been so good.. (Goodreads Excerpt)
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book. I’m not normally into Demons and Angels, but this book was original and easy to get into. I loved the concept of two personalities in the one body, a human and a demon. Both sides of Liora’s personality are very distinct…and very unique. I really enjoyed getting to know both characters.
I liked Kieron right from the start. He is far from perfect and does some stupid things but overall he comes off as a nice guy, and gorgeous doesn’t hurt either. It is interesting how he ends up loving both Liora and Lucky.
SPOILER ALERT* I get how he explains that he sees them as one person, but don’t we all dislike something about our partners? Kieron likes everything about Liora/Lucky. She is sweet, fragile, gentle and loyal…and bad ass and can kick your butt from here to eternity. Both characters are so different that it is hard to imagine that he is in love with both. I mean if they were one person I can see that he loves her in spite of her flaws (whatever he perceives her flaws to be). To each his own I guess. Lucky says it right at one point it is like getting to have two different girls? Must be a guy thing…lol
Back on track. I have to say I love the character of Bones. I am interested to see how he is developed in the next book.
I don’t want to say too much for fear of spoiling it (sorry for the spoiler alert earlier) but the story is very interesting and well thought out. The different worlds that Liora/Lucky live in are very well thought out and I really enjoy how both characters are developed throughout the story. I find myself unsure of whether or not I want them to reunite as one or stay as two separate beings. I guess I will have to read the next one to see what happens.
5 stars for me.
