When Livvy releases the devil within, he comes with sex that is out of this world—and the small matter of a life or death decision. As for Sael, he has never met a more ornery or sexy as hell human than formerly-vanilla teacher, Livvy.

She belongs to him, for now, and this devil Dom will try everything in his power to ensure she stays his. He needs her complete submission to survive, but even if she gives it, will it be a happy-ever-after or hell on earth?

 

Review:  Livvy has been plagued by erotic dreams for a year, only to discover that the dreams have actually been real. In Raven McAllan’s Livvy’s Devil Dom, the story focuses on a paranormal relationship between Sael and Livvy.

Sael is a “devil within” as opposed to an “inner devil” and he has been given one year to convince Livvy to accept her as her Dom…or she will lose her soul to the inner devil.

Having read a number of paranormal novels, I struggled with this story line. It was difficult to clearly understand what was happening because there didn’t appear to be much of an introduction for the reader. There are plenty of heated interactions between Livvy and Sael with a high level of explicitness. However, as a reader, I was left hoping for more substance.

I found the dialog between the two characters to be appealing, particularly with the added elements of humor and sarcasm. Livvy is not exactly the most submissive character, so it is evident that Sael may struggle to reach his goal.

Some of the language was confusing since it appeared to be British English as opposed to American English. It is always a bit odd to read about “knickers.” This is a fairly quick read, but you need to be able to catch on to the story line at the beginning or you will be lost. It was a bit more challenging of a read than I expected it to be.
