**Giveaway Details at the bottom of the review!**
Lucas just wants to get through the college semester with decent grades.
When his best friend Trevor first shows him a book of spells, he doesn’t believe in demons.
But when the two decide to try out a summoning spell for fun, Lucas gets much more than he bargained for in the form of a sexy, powerful demon who must do his bidding.
I always enjoy Jack Greene’s stories — they’re sexy, short (usually), and I feel like the detail is usually placed on the erotic content, which leaves me free to take the story with a dose of light-hearted humor and not to get too wrapped up in critique. I find myself just enjoying them, like a little decadent bite. Even though I’ve read a few that were a little more serious in nature, this is probably the best way to read this story. That is why, even though I’ve tagged it as Insta-Love, that didn’t really bother me as it usually would.
Lucas and his straight best friend Trevor find an ancient book of spells. They’re students at UC Irvine and enjoying the college life, though Lucas seems to have a bit steadier head on his shoulders and a little more maturity — he tempers his friend’s casual and sometimes thoughtless behavior by waiting to try out the spells until he’s though it over a bit more. Finally however, he gives into his friend and in Lucas’ dorm room, they summon a demon from the book, hardly expecting anything to happen. But, of course they’re worng and Lucas finds that the spell was made to fit him specifically…
The reason I started the review with a disclaimer is because this story really should be taken lightly, as it is meant. Of course, a demon who is also a bit like a magic genie with unlimited wishes that is bound to Lucas’ every desire and made for him… well you get the idea. It was a fun and sexy read, just in the nature of this author’s other stories that I’ve liked in the past. The ending moved a bit fast for me, including the insta-love bit. I, personally, wouldn’t have minded if the story acted like the beginning of a relationship, or whatever you want to qualify it, without any declarations, but then that is my personal taste and there is a reason for the way it is written.
