“Hades and Cat have chemistry in spades!” ~ Under the Covers
Oh how I’ve missed being in the Demonica world. With just the right amount of humor and snark, Larissa Ione managed to make me both happy and sad with HADES. Why? Happy because it just felt nice to read a paranormal with a flair of what I used to love in my reading. And sad because I just miss it! I miss this genre done in this way. I miss Larissa Ione’s writing style. And I miss this world!
Hades is a typical hero for Ms. Ione. He should be all bad but he’s actually got a sweet side, and a playful side. He’s been punished by Azagoth for so long, and he wants nothing more than being able to live his immortal life in peace and happiness. What a refreshing take on him! I think you will quickly fall in love with the man, all bare chested and alpha male.
But if there’s one thing that Larissa Ione usually does well is writing a kick ass heroine and this is no exception, I loved Cat! Cataclysm is a fallen angel. Living her days as Azagoth’s maid and hoping that she can meet the requirements needed for her to get her wings back and return to the Heavens. Where she was shunned from and kicked out. She’s not your typical kick ass chick. She doesn’t know it all. But she has good intentions and a great personality. I fell in love with her from the very beginning. I couldn’t help but laugh with her and at her.
Theirs is a bit of an insta-love relationship. Those usually don’t work well for me. But somehow it did! Maybe it’s because they’ve known each other for a while, even if they’ve never spoken. Truly they are the perfect compliment for each. Just enough good with just enough evil. Well not evil really. More like just a healthy dose of bad boy? And did I mention hot? Yeah, although this is not quite the level that we’ve sometimes seen from Ms. Ione (it’s only 100 pages after all!) you won’t be disappointed in that department either. Hades and Cat have chemistry in spades!
This is a quick one and I think you will be left like me. Wanting more!
“I don’t care,” he said against her lips. “I need you. I burn for you.”
“I love that you don’t wear shoes,” he said, his voice all breathless and needy. “Nothing to catch your jeans on.”

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
