Description:

Rezon was the Demon King’s lieutenant for four thousand years but even the most badass Demon in Hell gets jaded, so Rez joined the Beguilers. Only trouble is now he’s been beguiled by Leisa, a tormented human woman who’s captured his heart.

When Leisa picks up one loser too many, Rezon’s provoked into whisking her off to his lair to show her what a real man—uh, make that Demon!—can do for her. Leisa’s been tagged by a Destroyer and her soul is forfeit, so when she inadvertently shatters Rez’s defenses and bonds with him there’ll be Hell to pay—literally.

To My Readers: I wanted to write a truly alpha male hero so when a story idea about a demon popped into my head, how could I resist? Demon or human, my take is we’re all looking for that special someone who’ll truly love us for what we are. The result, Rezon and Leisa’s story, is gritty and at times rather dark but above all it’s a story of redemption and happy endings. And for those of you who like a laugh, there’s always my witty and urbane Demon King to lighten things up as he attempts to help Rez solve his predicament. Enjoy!

Rezon has been watching her for a year. He knew it was wrong to watch her through his mirror but he just couldn’t help himself. There is just something about Leisa that draws him to her even though they’ve never met.

Leisa is in a downward spiral. She had been for the past few years. She’d go to a bar, pick-up some guy who was usually a loser, have sex and pass out. She just didn’t care. She was so filled with self-hatred that she was becoming self destructive. 
 
Finally, after way overstepping his boundaries as a Beguiler demon, Rezon decides he has to have Leisa. Things don’t go as planned when Rezon finds that he can’t wipe Leisa’s memories and he’s being called on the carpet by his King. The King has advice for Rezon but should he take it? 
 
Leisa’s problems started when another demon added her to his quota and Rezon learns that she’s scheduled to die soon. He doesn’t want that to happen but he’s not sure if he can stop it. On the other hand, Rezon has a special birthday coming up himself and there’s no telling what will happen to him. Is there any possible way that they could both end up alive and well?
 
Death, demons and unexpected happenings make up this delightful romantic comedy. Enter into a world where there is a quota to get souls, legions with different duties, several types of demons and behind the scene maneuvers. They may look human but they’re not. 
 
Most of the characters may have been demons but they each had their own personalities and specialties. Quick descriptions of each character gave you immediate insight into their qualities and weather they were good guys, bad guys or somewhere in between. There were no set this is what demons do, each demon was unique. Leisa came across as a lovable but troubled human. The King was trying to be as good a friend as a demon could be to Rezon but he still had to cover his butt too! Rezon is an old and powerful demon who is feeling things that he never had in his long life.  Even the secondary characters come across as likable and interesting.
 
I really loved this story. It was packed full of sex, sin, twists and turns, The humor that was found frequently gave a very light hearted feel to this story. The characters were well written and the ending a surprise. I just wanted to keep reading and wished this story would keep going. I can’t wait to see where book 2 goes!
 
As this is a fairly short book, it’s the perfect size for a lazy afternoon.

Even Demons Get the Blues

(Book 1, Demon series)

by Maree Anderson

Publisher: Red Sage Publishing

Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance


Review Copy Received from Publisher4DelightfulDivas.png

Summary: Rezon was the Demon King’s lieutenant for four thousand years but even the most badass Demon in Hell gets jaded, so Rez joined the Beguilers. Only trouble is now he’s been beguiled by Leisa, a tormented human woman who’s captured his heart.


When Leisa picks up one loser too many, Rezon’s provoked into whisking her off to his lair to show her what a real man—uh, make that Demon!—can do for her. Leisa’s been tagged by a Destroyer and her soul is forfeit, so when she inadvertently shatters Rez’s defenses and bonds with him there’ll be Hell to pay—literally.

Dakota’s Review: Who would have thought a bad ass demon could fall in love, let alone get the blues? Evidently, Maree Anderson! In Even Demons Get the Blues, Rez finds himself falling in love with a human.  I was immediately skeptical but as the story unfolded, I found myself rooting for Rez to beat the odds and be able to claim Leisa. While I was expecting more resistance from Rez it was obvious he was still a bad ass demon when it came to protecting the love of his life.

Along with the wonderful hero and heroine, I found myself wanting to know more about Asmodeus, the King of Demons. Ms. Anderson’s creation of this demon king has me hoping she’s going write give him his own book. Maybe if I beg? I definitely look forward to reading and reviewing the next book in this new series by Ms. Anderson. Especially if I get to see more of the yummy Asmodeus.

Rated 4 Delightful Divas by DakotaThe Blackraven’s Reviews!

~Romance Junkies Readers Group


“Unique and witty, Even Demons Get the Blues is devious entertainment.  Rezon and Asmodeus are deliciously dark and memorable while it takes some time to warm up to Leisa, mainly because readers don’t know why she’s suffering for quite awhile.  It’s the guys who make Even Demons Get the Blues so much fun with their wily banter.  Even Demons Get the Blues is an original, sensual page turner.”
-Lisa, JOYFULLY REVIEWED


Rating: 4 fangs!!!!

“Anderson drew me into her well-written tale, and even within the confines of novella length, she created vivid characters that I came to care about. I would have liked a bit more soul-searching from both Rez and Leisa in the last half of the book, but it definitely worked as is. Also, kudos to Anderson for neatly balancing the steam-to-story ratio and not overwhelming either with the other!
If you enjoy fast-paced, clever, and steamy paranormal romance, I think that you’ll enjoy Even Demons Get the Blues as much as I did. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from Maree Anderson!”
-Chris, FANG-TASTIC BOOKS


Rating: 4 hearts!!!!

“Paranormal books are so fun to read, especially when there are so many imaginative authors like Maree Anderson writing them. This books gives readers a chance to step out of the box and into the world of Demons. Not bad for an afternoon of entertainment.”
-Roni, ROMANCE BOOK SCENE
