by Tanya Vought
When good and evil collide, who will be left standing?Eden Cross is lonely. If she didn't have her beloved cat, Onyx, she'd have no one at all. Eden longs for companionship, but, being a prisoner, all she gets is foul-mouthed demons, and hatred from the one man she wants respect from the most.
Collier Brigham is son of the King of Demons. Bitter with hatred, like his father, he's expected to be a force to be reckoned with. He never believed love would rear its ugly head in his favor. Especially not when the woman is the daughter of the man who is to blame for the deaths of his mother and brother.
She is a beautiful force of nature and he is misery personified. When secrets are revealed, can they see past the unthinkable and work together to right their wrongs?

EXCERPTCollier exits the shower, grabs a towel off the small rack and smiles, assuming it’s Eden’s as well. Just as he’s about to dry himself off, he hears a noise behind him. He turns around to find Eden licking her lips at his body. She’s eye fucking him and it drives him insane. “Eden, like what you see?” He grabs his girth in front of her, enjoying her eyes as he tantalizes her. But this is not the time for this. He’s vowed to make himself a new man—to be the one she wants—the one to make her laugh and be carefree, like she is with Drew. One thought of Drew and he turns his back on her and dries off. “Please give me a minute to myself. Leave the bathroom, now.” He hates having seen the confusion all over Eden’s face. Anger is definitely there too. “You know what, Collier? I’m tired of the bullshit and all you stupid, mercurial men. I’m so freaking tired of it. I stuck up for your sorry ass, but forget it. I’m done.” She slams the door, leaving him alone and confused. Why did she have to stick up for him? What the hell just happened here? He dries off the rest of his body with the purple towel, even though he has mostly air-dried. He runs his fingers through his hair, trying to restrain the crazy head of hair of his. He huffs and growls. He feels his skin start to crack… he’s angry. He was rude to Eden after thinking of Drew. He knows he needs to talk with her. He wraps his towel around his waist, since he left his clothes in the other room. He hopes Eden is waiting for him. Slowly opening the door, Collier finds Eden reading on the bed. He knows she’s seen him but also knows he deserves her stubborn silent treatment. He notices that she’s brought food back, but, well, it’s not quite what he expected. On a white plate with red grapes and banana slices she’s formed the words: Eat Shit Asshole. He laughs and grumbles. He takes a bite of his food and in the corner of his eye he notices Eden watching him. “If you’d like a piece of this, you’re more than welcome to some, sweetheart.” He enjoys watching her squirm on the bed, without making a peep. He also enjoys watching her huff before turning back to her book, which he knows she’s definitely not reading.
Although Paranormal is not my usual genre, I loved this book. From the first page, Tanya pulls you in to the web that is Eden and Collier. There is a chemistry between them that is undeniable. There is suspense that keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. Collier, even though he is a demon, shows his kinder side when it comes to her. As they make their journey, becoming closer as time goes by, will the secrets and lies tear them apart? Or are they strong enough to make it last? Find out!
