Demon of Desire

For a short story, Demon of Desire was a pretty good read. I try not to read shorter novels because they always feel so rushed and the character development is minimal, but I liked Chole Waits setting for this story. I loved the idea of a masquerade/Halloween party that our main character, Sarah, gets to attend with her best friend. I thought the author spent more than enough time on the characters with the exception of Sarah’s long time crush neighbor, who happens to be her love interest other than the demon. I thought the cursed dress was a great idea and the story line in that sense was strong, but I still wanted more character development. It was a great quick read and, in my opinion, would have made for a great novel.

Why should she be cautious? After all, where had it gotten her except alone on a Friday night? It certainly hadn't gotten her a date with her adorable neighbor, Tim. So when she meets a dark, magnetic man in a mask claiming to know her every desire, she surrenders to his seductions...and for the first time engages in a steamy one night stand with a stranger.
 
Little does Sarah know that her new lover wants much more than one night with her. Much more...
 
Her every pleasure will be indulged...but at what price?
