Review - Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Synopsis: Amy Goodnight knows that the world isn't as simple as it seems—she grew up surrounded by household spells and benevolent ghosts. But she also understands that "normal" doesn't mix with magic, and she's worked hard to build a wall between the two worlds. Not only to protect any hope of ever having a normal life.

Review: This was really disappointing and I had such high expectations for Texas Gothic and sadly it didn't deliver for me at all. I was looking for a ghost story to make my skin crawl or at the very least give me the heebie jeebies but instead was left with a main character, Amy, who mostly just whined about her sister who threatened to wreak havoc on her "normal" life with her ghost busting equipment or either griping about the cowboy next door who she was so obviously attracted to!

Review - The Devil Inside by Jenna Black

Possession. Murder. Mayhem.
Let the games begin...

Synopsis: Exorcism isn’t a job, it’s a calling—and a curse. Just ask Morgan Kingsley, a woman who has a stronger aura than any Demon. Or so she thought. Now, in a pair of black leather pants and a kick-ass tattoo, Morgan is heading back to Philadelphia after a nasty little exorcism—and her life is about to be turned upside down… by the Demon that’s gotten inside her.

Review: OMG I LOVED this book! Morgan was a hard character for me to relate to on some levels at first but the more I read the more intrigued with her and her life that I became. She comes off hard and kinda uncaring in the beginning almost to the point of being plum bitchy but the deeper into the story you go you understand that part of that has to do with her job as an exorcist and alot to do with her raising.

I think the turning point for me on beginning to open up to Morgan was when she was tossed in jail for performing an illegal exorcism because she started showing signs of weakness, and her walls started crumbling around her as she has to determine who she can trust.

The Devil Inside has a bit of something for all...demons, treachery, sex, and a good many twists and omg moments!
