Review: Catching an Evil Tail by Mary Abshire

Catching an Evil Tail by Mary Abshire

Publisher: Noble Romance
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat Rating: 3



Half-demon Jessie Garrett wants to live a normal life among her friends and keep her soul catching ability a secret, but supernatural creatures keep popping up in her world. Adding to her struggles, her vampire lover remains out of the country, and when he offers no valuable explanation as to why he hasn't returned, she wonders if she should move on without him.

As if Jessie doesn't have enough worries on her mind, the demon yearning to seduce her shows up at her home. She longs to liberate herself from the debt she owes him, and when he asks for her help, she jumps at the chance to make a new deal with him—one that will guarantee her freedom. The only catch? She has to send the soul of a werewolf to hell.

Love, trust, and loyalty are on the line. Torn between her feelings for her vampire boyfriend, a hot Alpha wolf, and a demon vowing to protect her, Jessie must figure out her heart's true desires.

Denise's Review

I really don’t know what to say about this book except…wow.

First of all, as I should have known going in, this is the second installment in what is now a three-book series, and I am already stalking Amazon for the Kindle release. I also haven’t read the first one, but I very much intend to rectify that situation ASAP. Because I didn’t get to see Jessie and her vamp hook-up, I feel my perspective is a little skewed. Even still…wow.

I am typically not a love-triangle kind of girl, but I have been forced to eat my words from time to time. This is one of them. The battle for Jessie between Jeremy and Drake is intense, hot, and reminds me of those days I spent rooting for Spike over Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. However, beyond the steamy demons and the killer sex scenes is witty characterization, incredibly likable characters, and a plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

This is more than a romance—this is a fast-paced paranormal thriller with the added benefit of steamy sex and romance thrown in the mix. It’s the perfect combination, and a wicked thrill of a literary ride.
