SEASON 1 FINALE -

Once again I have to ask, WHY AREN’T YOU READING THIS SERIES???? It's fun, sexy, humorous, action filled and just a great, enjoyable diversion!

THE BLURB:

Devon Harper is a cambion, the offspring of an incubus and one of his female followers. Discovered by those who could've helped him too late to be saved from his nature, he barely survived a brutal childhood before getting a handle on his powers of seduction. Lust, sex, desire: these are second nature to cambion, and are their road to both riches and ruin. Devon has the power to bring people to their knees with a glance, to drive them so crazy with pleasure that they forget their names, and occasionally forget to breathe as well. He could use his birthright to force the world to worship him, but Devon is trying to fight against the pull, to do what he can to track down people with the power to summon a demon and stop them before more cambion can be made. But Devon doesn't realize that the path he and his friends are following is only one strand of a web laid in place by a demon who's not content to wait on the whims of humanity to get out of Hell. Devon is this demon's key to staying above ground permanently, and when he finally catches up with the cambion, he's not taking no for an answer. Episode 6: Find Me Rio's running out of time if he hopes to save Devon. After burning all his bridges, he sets out for Kelowna, willing to sacrifice everything to save his cambion.


NOW is when you want to pick these up. You can get the whole season which includes bonus goodies. Including background on Dev’s dad’s!

Originally I thought this series was just about a tough guy and a sweet, sexy babe, but there’s SO much more to these books than I ever expected.

This episode begins with glimpses of Rio’s past (way past) which intermingle with the present. It all builds toward a battle scene full of tense action. Eventually the story smoothes out to a tender, sweet, and humorous interlude that left me smiling.

I absolutely cannot wait to see where Cari Z takes me next. I’d follow Rio and Dev to heaven OR hell.


It filled him with peace even as he realized, almost too late, that peace was death.


THE CHARACTERS

Rio - We learn what a rare and unique being Rio is. Even before we knew he was angelic, he was divine! Warm, strong, handsome, and indecently sexy.


Rio was the island of sanity in a world of confusion and fear, and Devon wanted him desperately.
Dev - A man possessed, but he can overcome anything to be with Rio.

Cressidus Eww. Just ewwwww! Cringe-worthy demon that needs to go back to hell. Go Rio on his ass!!!

THE STORY

Rio’s anguish drives him like a force of nature in this episode. God, to be the object of his affection, whew! Like a precision weapon he is determined to get to Dev, at any cost.

Devon is not really himself right now, but he still holds on for his man. And boy, is it worth it.


“Here we go,” Rio muttered. “Let’s do it right this time, no more slipping away, Devon. Open your eyes.” […] “Open up, honey, open your eyes.”

Devon tried, but his eyelids felt so heavy. He was able to curl his lips up into a little smile, though. “C’lled me h’ney,” he husked,…” […]

“I’ll call you anything you want if you look at me snickerdoodle.”


THE WRITING

The way Rio’s undoing is portrayed here is brilliant. He is a man at his wits’ end and you feel it. His ultimate relief is also palpable and so rewarding it’s worthy of reading over and over. (Yeah, I did!)

I could gripe about how the action scene resolved just a little too easily, but ultimately it doesn’t really matter. What I wanted out of this episode I got, in spades. The promise of more action, Dev’s dad’s, more Steven and a likely ménage is all titillating enough to have me drooling for Season Two.
