  • I wasn’t so excited to start this book. Why? It may sound shallow but it was the title. Yes, I thought “Oh demon lover, typical romance story. *yawns* Boring stuff”. But (again shallow, I know) the cover was great and I had to make sure it’s alright by reading the summary. After it passed inspection I requested the galley. After a few days I got the confirmation email *happy dance* and started reading. And I had such a wonderful surprise. The story was amazing (I probably was in the mood [...]


  • Such a complicated book/rating. The Demon Lover takes a lover of Gothic fiction, books and old legends and lore and plants her in a small town where most of the residents and co-workers at the local college aren't what they seem. The slow-paced story lands Callie in interesting situations as she's drawn to a rambling, old house filled with the legend of an incubus, and by the end of the book the reader isn't sure who to trust. Truthfully Callie seems TOO trusting of some of the residents I don't [...]


  • 1,5 starsI lost four days of my life with this story (I'm stubborn), soexcuse me some ramblings.I'm sorry, but this was one of the most boring books i've ever read!!What happened here?Where was the story of the demon lover?Where was the romance?Where was the intensity?Each night I woke—or thought I awoke—to a moonlit room. The shadows reached for me and swelled into the dark lover. I’d feel his weight on my chest and then, just when I thought I’d suffocate, he’d press his lips to mine [...]


  • It seems like a great book, just not really my style.True, I only read about 20%, but I can't get into it. Don't get me wrong, it's great and pretty well written, but it's just too not my type. Pretty slow paced, lots of descriptions and details that I don't really care about. Worth giving it a try though, the plot is damn interesting and the characters seem to have potential.


  • The Demon Lover4.5 StarsAfter writing a bestselling book on demon lovers in literature and folklore, Callie Macfay is offered a position at Fairwick College in a small remote town in the Catskill mountains. Despite her academic expertise, Callie does not believe in things that go bump in the night and dismisses the sensual and erotic dreams that she begins experiencing. That is until she realizes the dreams are dangerously real and Fairwick is a haven for more than one supernatural creature. To [...]


  • I should have known I wasn't going to enjoy this. The strapline of 'if you love Stephenie Meyer's books and Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels' should have set off big enough alarm bells to dissuade me altogether. But it's Carol Goodman. She's by no means my favourite author of all time or anything, but I've read three very enjoyable books from her oeuvre of gothic mysteries, and have always found her work to be excellent comfort reading - well-written and packed with themes I relish: s [...]


  • Great news! If you're a fan of Deborah Harkness & her All Souls trilogy, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU.Otherwise, don't bother. I was going to give this the thorough snark treatment with snippets, gifs, eyerolling, etc -- but then I decided not to bother. There's nothing original, vibrant, or compelling about the book -- so why should I bother? I've got better things to do. Like work. Or grocery shopping. Or washing my hair.Seriously, though. This book was really, really boring.I'm not kidding wh [...]


  • This book had such promise for me after reading the summary. I thought it was going to be a paranormal romance with modern and gothic elements woven into the story, but this book was nothing like I expected.The book starts out slow for me and doesn't pick up much after that. The character of Callie was hard to get attached to in the fact that I couldn't find myself really liking her. I am not sure if it was her personality or the overall writing of this character but Callie never evolved into a [...]


  • 'This is where all stories start, on the edge of a dark wood"When I read that sentence I knew I had to get this book, the cover looked creepy and the story on the back cover seemed promising. I haven't read it yet, but I can't wait.I started this book finally and I'm shocked that I haven't started sooner! It's so good, gothic and has this mood I like in books. The funny thing is, I can't read until evening and this book isn't made for night, it will freak you out! Every sound and movement scares [...]


  • Juliet Dark is a pseudonym for Carol Goodman. Goodman writes historical gothic fiction and literary mysteries. This is her first romantic paranormal fantasy and she succeeds beautifully. The imaginary she creates is vivid and her attention to detail has you immediately loving the small college town of Fairwick in upstate New York and the characters residing there. “The Demon Lover” is the type of book you want to savior, like that perfect cup of coffee on a cold fall morning. This book immed [...]


  • When I first started The Demon Lover I was really surprised that it was not a YA novel. Not In the least. I guess it's my fault for simply skimming the blurb and not taking in the "erotic dreams" part. Oops. Although it was fine by me since I was in need of an adult read soon. I seem to not be the only one surprised by this discovery as well. =) So this is my heads-up to you!Even though I was never bored, once my surprise at it being an adult book wore off I started to wonder where the plot was [...]


  • I am a bit shocked that I really liked this book, I was certain for no apparent reason that it would be a let down, probably due to the fact that I have grown weary to pnr novels. But this one turned to lean more to the UF side and the romance, though it played an integral part to the plot wasn't its linchpin. So I was pleasantly surprised by the worldbuilding with the reach folkrore, the haunted imagery ( I have a thing for forests and magic passages eversince I was a kid and read the Cronicles [...]


  • Really good premise (hot demon lover that comes to you every night? Yes, please!) but ultimately falls flat. Callie McFay is a little too unbelievable of a character to be true. She's 26, has a Ph.D, and is a successful author of a book on demon lovers. She's pretty knowledgeable since one has been visiting her since her parents' untimely demise when she was but 12 years old (12 years old? Ew, pedo incubus much?). Callie accepts a teaching position at a small, second-rate university in a sleepy [...]


  • (4.5) Juliet Dark is a pseudonym for Carol Goodman, two of whose literary suspense novels I read years ago: The Lake of Dead Languages and The Drowning Tree. I enjoyed them, and what I remember most are the mythological themes, the academic settings, and the beauty of Goodman’s prose, especially when describing water, ice, and snow. Recently Goodman has entered the fantasy field, first with the Black Swan Rising novels (written with her husband Lee Slonimsky under the pen name Lee Carroll), wh [...]


  • Reviewed for Wickedly Bookish Reviewswickedlybookish/Callie McFay has taken a job teaching at Fairwick College that she wasn’t sure she wanted in the first place, and has bought an old Victorian house that her instincts are screaming for her to stay away from. Something has drawn her to become a part of the community that is not what it appears to be at first glance. Just when she feels she is settling in, Callie is visited by a demon lover that is determined to suck the life out of her. Night [...]


  • I'm going to start this review by telling you what I wish I knew when I started this book. It's the first in a series and the ending is horrible. It's a cliffhanger; there is no HEA; and frankly, as annoyed as I am, I am having a hard time remembering the things I actually liked about this book. But I'm going to try, because I really was pretty into it, until the last 25 pages or so.Callie is a published author and is something of an expert in the folklore surrounding demon lovers and gothic lit [...]


  • 3.5 starsI’m not sure how to classify Demon Lover by Juliet Dark. It reads like a paranormal romance with all kinds of fae and creatures from both folklore and the paranormal. Yet, there is a gothic horror feel to it as well. Set in the small college town of Fairwick in upstate New York, Demon Lover is a mesmerizing read.Callie McFay is offered a position as lecturer at Fairwick College. Are you seeing the clues yet? I loved how this book began. I pictured the drive from the city, into the hil [...]


  • Callie McFay gets offered a teaching position at the college of Fairwick, 3-4 hours away from New York. She goes there for the interview not really planning on accepting, until she becomes enchanted by an old victorian house that used to belong to Dahlia LaMotte, a famous writer of gothic romances in the middle of the 20th century. After that, she buys the house, accepts the teaching position and moves into Fairwick. It quickly becomes apparent to Callie and to the reader as well, that there are [...]


  • I couldn't finish this book. I stopped at the end of Chapter 7, which means I thew it in my library bag as gently as possible in disgust. I picked up Demon Lover because it had what added up to a fun read: the paranormal, an incubus (come on folks!), potential other love conquests, and the prerequisite sleepy college town for wacky hi-jinks to ensue. Instead this book started with Callie, who has a name that in full no one can pronounce because that is the new thing that authors love to do, inte [...]


  • Reseña completa en La Coneja de PapelMe empecé El amante demonio con una idea equivocada, supongo que eso ayudó a que me gustara. La sinopsis me había llamado la atención, sí, pero tenía la sensación de que iba a ser el típico libro que te saca del bloqueo del lector y acaba cayendo en el olvido. Y no, ¡error! Evidentemente, cambiaría muchas cosas de la historia (a veces la autora se pasa de azúcar), pero en conjunto me ha gustado bastante.


  • Leaving your pet mouse in a blizzard cause you wanna be with some guy you’ve spoken to twice? Can’t relate.


  • really loved this! was a great break from all my ya! although i did have a few things figured out, still an awesome story!


  • Originally posted on: readingandwritingurbanfantasy.The GoodI don't think anyone can deny how beautifully written this book was. It had a very poetic and lyrical vibe to it. As I read The Demon Lover, I felt like I was being lulled into a magical world where anything was possible. And the rich history and stories of mythical creatures was quite fascinating to read about. Death by Sex, Not the Worst Way to GoEven as a child, Callie McFay can remember her shadow man and the wonderful fairy tales h [...]


  • Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: As a dark, gothic novel The Demon Lover is a fairly good read, but since it is marketed as a paranormal romance, it was a bit disappointing.Opening Sentence: Best keep your door locked, Miss.Review:The Demon Lover was not what I expected. The book is labeled as a paranormal romance. Yes, it is paranormal but it is not a romance, at least in the general sense of romances.Callie McFay has lived her life hearing of fairytales from her parents b [...]


  • This book is not a romance. It's definitely not an erotic novel and it's not horror. Having read the thing cover-to-cover, I can now honestly say, I have no idea what it's supposed to be. I do try not to give spoilers when I write reviews, however, there might be a few in this. Callie McFay moves into a house near her new teaching job and begins to have her nights haunted by an incubus. Now, for the duration of the book, Callie bounces from one would-be lover to another without any conscience or [...]


  • Wow, I am in love with this book. The reason I decided to read it was all about the cover it is so pretty and the story inside totally lived up to that pretty cover. So like I said I really had no idea what kind of book I was getting into and I was amazed at the story. We go to a small college town were Callie our heroine is offered a job. This town in layered with secrets. There are witches and fairies and sexy incubus and Callie herself is nothing near normal. Callie grew up listening to her p [...]


  • When someone recommend me this book, I was so pumped after reading the plot, I seriously hoped that I would love this book. It definitely didn’t disappoint me, it actually nearly made it on my favourites shelf. Highly recommended to everyone who loves a good Adult Gothic Paranormal Romance.Raised by parents obsessed with fairytales and folklore, writer Callie McFay came by her obsession naturally. Being raised by her stoic grandmother after their deaths she’s a contrast in classy New Yorker [...]


  • Lo siento pero LO DEJO! Lo estoy pasando fatal y me entra una paranoia impresionante. El miedo que me mete en el cuerpo es más allá de lo normal quita quita


  • ¿Por dónde empiezo?Cuando empecé a leer este libro, me imaginaba cosas muy distintas a los que me depararía.He de decir que la autora se excedió en descripciones en este libro, tanto que llega a ser aburrida y monótona en cierto momento. En momentos tuve que leer en diagonal, hasta encontrar algo que llamara mi atención, y es que sentí que se desviaba mucho del tema principal, hubo de todo!!!Cuando creí que ya estaba terminándose todo, resulta que no. La verdad no me dan ganas de leer [...]


  • The Demon lover is a book as evocative and ravishing as its name sake, filled with gothic themes and imagery and spiced with snippets of erotica. Although I liked Callie and found the other characters all very real and well defined, my favourite character was the mysterious demon lover. Like Callie, I loved this ‘wild creature of moonlight and shadow’ who seemed to be the very essence of passion.‘I forced my eyes open and he was still there, hovering above me, looking down at me, his face [...]
