REVIEW: Demon of Envy by Jennifer Lynne


Title:  Demon of Envy

Author:  Jennifer Lynne

Synopsis:  “I am Thon. I am Envy. I hold the petty jealousies and passions of all mortals in my heart. Olivia is desperate for my love, but how can I offer it when the demon inside is screaming ever louder to escape? How can I possibly protect this fragile woman from the grim darkness of my reality? Oh, Liv. If I love you, I might kill you.” ~ Phthonos, god of jealousy and envy

Olivia is an ordinary woman living an ordered life, but at thirty-two true romance appears to have eluded her. Everywhere she looks people are in relationships or falling in love, but her career and her charity work are enough to keep the demon of envy at bay. Until the moment he turns up on her doorstep with a demand that rips her life and her heart wide open and leaves her at risk of eternal torment.

Contains adult sexual content suitable for readers 18+ only.

Caroline 4 stars

Well this is a hot little number and it gets into it right from the start….and carries on…and is very descriptive!  In short I loved it!

Thon is the God of Envy and Jealousy, he has been in Hell (literally) but has been given a second chance at life and love.

Olivia (Liv) has had a bit of a hard time in her past and has closed herself off from the world.  She has been having naughty dreams involving Thon for a month so when he turns up on her doorstep it is a bit of a shock for her… she gets over quickly when her clothes start to come off!!!

There were some lovely lines in here ‘2 halves together at last’ and ‘you bought me back from a place where nothing is everything and everything is nothing’ and some lines that made me nervous giggle (well he is a bazillion years old so not down with the lingo!)  ‘your pussy is glistening with sex fluids’ but this is a hot, steamy story and I really liked it, so much so that I hope to read the other books in the series.

This is book 5 in the Gods of Love series, each novella is standalone and can be read in any order.
