This was a cute follow up to Micah and Elio’s story but can definitely be read as a stand-alone. Oscar and Deus (Sorry, I can’t remember how to spell his full name!) were both likable and relatable men. The writing and editing were both very well done. (I only spotted two small errors.) The storyline moved along at a great pace. I’m looking forward to reading Silas’s book next, and I’m hoping that there will be one for Oliver as well. The following was my favorite quote from the book:
Power is an illusion weak men seek to feel important.
Argghh! I feel like Oscar and I need to bounce around to dispel some of the electricity from this story! Where to start?! I love this book! I was already hooked by the first book, "Stay", and now I'm even more addicted to this series and world. Oscar and Deus are absolutely perfect for each other - a powerful witch with no interest in being on the Witches Counsel and a Demon Prince of Hell! The fact that Oscar is so utterly adorable and sweet and Deus is walking sex ... yeah, definitely perfect together! I loved the humor and snarky banter and we get to learn a little more about the secret world of Everlost. Old friends from the first book and new friends from the witch-demon familiar community help to round out this amazing cast of characters, and I find myself totally invested in wanting more. Wanting to know what happens next. Autumn Breeze was a new author to me when I read "Stay" and I was completely blown away by that story, and this one just reinforces my opinion that she's going to be an author to watch. I honestly can't say enough good things about this book and I 100% recommend this series!
This was a sweet and sexy romance. Oscar was a witch, and Asmodeus was his familiar and a prince of Hell. Oscar was obviously a very powerful witch, but he didn't use his powers here beyond summoning Asmodeus. Deus was a high level demon, but we only saw him doing good, mostly for Oscar. Both men were easy to love, as they immediately began to turn to each other for friendship, comfort, and more. Though Deus still retained his high rank as a demon, which he had no intention of giving up, he was happy living with Oscar and learning to blend in with humanity. While I would have liked to see Oscar use his powers beyond the summoning, it was very cool seeing Asmodeus move from place to place using Hell as his portal. This couple would definitely have been very powerful in the supernatural community of Everlost if they wanted to, but they just wanted to be free to do as they pleased. The supporting characters here were all likable, and it was fun to see how Oscar relaxed with his longtime friend and fellow witch Eira. I appreciated the moments at E11even with Elio and Micah from Stay, who were still completely in love. This was a great addition to the Touch of Desire series, and I'm already anxious and excited to read the next one!
I am enjoying this series. Oscar is forced to get a demon familiar and the one he summons is so much more than he would have ever thought. Oscar and Asmodeus both benefit from their arrangement and I absolutely loved seeing them figure out their feelings and how they both supported what would make the other happy. Most of all I was glad that Oscar was able to get part of his family back. They were just meant to be together and it’s easy to see with how well they fit.
I received a copy of this book and am giving an honest review
