RT Rating

This book may surprise many a reader. Davis is a first-time novelist, yet she pens a terrific story that contains humor, spicy sex and a great spin on the paranormal genre.

Readers will no doubt have a hard time putting this book down. The witch is crafty, and the book's humor is contagious. If Davis continues to write like this, she'll have a long career.

Rice, Coach and Geffen are three men who don't take much seriously, except for their idea to open an exclusive club. They just need a place that's big enough. Their best friend Sunnie, a real estate agent and a very superstitious young woman, doesn't feel right about a house she shows them. She can smell evil right from the start and tries to discourage the guys from buying it.

But all they see are dollar signs,
so they ignore Sunnie's warnings. She prays for them, which proves to be
their protection. A demoness who lives in the basement is trying to kill the men. When that doesn't work, she
turns into the type of woman each
man finds attractive. Sunnie, meanwhile, is in love with one of the guys,
but he is blinded by the woman the demoness has turned into and doesn't see her attraction.
