Book Review: The Demon Mistress by Jordan K Rose

Author: Jordan K Rose
Title: The Demon Mistress (Eva Prim #1)
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, & UF
Pages: ebook
First Published: September 2013
Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon freebie)

What’s a girl to do when she discovers her husband, who happens to be the Master Vampire for the New England Region, has been lying to her for, oh, say a hundred and eighty years? 

Well, it all depends. If she’s accidentally released forty demons from some creepy old book, unintentionally announced the existence of vampires on The Internet, kidnapped a werewolf, enraged a lovesick vampire by stealing his approved mate, and attracted the attention of The High Commander for The Vampire Federation, not to mention gotten stoned and mastered the forbidden art of demon calling, she might be willing to call it even.

Or, she might plead her case at an Inquisition and hope like all hell, she isn’t staked before sunrise. Eh, a slightly busier night than usual, but nothing Eva Prim can’t handle.

I think for this review I will divide and conquer (it's been a while this I've done this format! Changing it upppppppppp!)

The Good

-It was a quick read. I finished it in a couple days.

-It was HILARIOUS! So much goofiness going on. The main character was a hoot; a total snotball *cough* bitch* cough*, but I certainly enjoyed her.

-The demon duo was PERFECT and they were even more hilarious then the main character.

-THANK GOODNESS there was much more going on than just a bored vamp owning a blog. Heck, even the blog played a MAJOR role later on the story. I was quite worried.

-Even though I guessed the ending, it was still good and it made me happy. I am curious to see what is next for this vamp. May not read the sequel until it is at my library a freebie on Amazon like this one.

-It does fall into the "PR" genre, but honestly there wasn't TOO much love going on. They are already married and so forth, so the romance wasn't annoying and taking away from the story. It seemed much action-y/drama-y/comedic then PR

The Bad and the Ugly

-The beginning had me worried. There wasn't too much drama going on yet. I was SO worried that it would be just about a vamp being bored and owning a blog about being a vamp. However, it turned itself around.

-The cover. Ugh. Cheesy. I don't think she was even a red-head. Can't remember tho...

- "Eva" (her blogger name) was a big ol' snot and big ol' dummy. Yes, funny, but there were times I really wanted to punch her and tell her shut her mouth. REALLY? You can't honestly be that daft and bitchy. SIGHS.

-Stefan. Meh. I would not have stayed with him afterwards....


This was a fun book. Glad it was a freebie though. It was certainly entertaining and it was better than I had originally thought. "Eva" was a hilarious main character, because she was sassy and dumb (yes, an odd mix), but there were times I wanted to punch her. The ending was totally predictable, but I liked it. It made sense. The beginning DID warn me, but it did get better when the demons appeared. Ah. Thank goodness for those lovable and idiotic demons. I honestly think they made this book. Without them it would have been a total meeeeh. I recommend this for those that need some paranormal mixed with some much needed comedy. In the end, I shall stamp this with 3 stars.

I honestly am divided. Maybe. Maybe not. PR is rather not my genre but I like funny demons. Oh well.
