Synopsis:

Demons.

They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Chances are, you’ve interacted with one or two of them in your lifetime without even realizing it…

Demon hunter Evelyn Brighton saves unsuspecting humans from the malevolent creatures masquerading around them every day. Working under the Lebriga Corporation’s direction, she never fails to bring her A-game with her keen skill, fiercely independent spirit, and the best weapon in her arsenal: the Divinity blade.

Evelyn’s world is turned on its ear, however, when she is ordered to train cocky new recruit Daniel Summers. They both feel an instinctive pull drawing them to one another, the ancient spells tattooed into their skin illuminating whenever the two hunters come into contact. But with evil looming over the city of Los Angeles, Evelyn and Daniel’s mutual competitiveness and sense of duty to Lebriga and all humankind forces them to hold back their desires. Will their restraint be enough to keep them focused and save southern California, or will the dark forces prevail?

Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Divinity is an action-filled, fast-paced marriage of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Edgy, witty, and sexy, it will bind you in its spell.

 

My review:

Divinity is the first book in author Patricia Leever’s Divinity Series and kicks off this series with a fantastic start! I am totally hooked on this series!

Evelyn Brighton has been seeing demons for as long as she can remember.  She always noticed the evil nature hidden under the mask of a human.  Evie also realized at a young age that she was the only one who seemed to notice these creatures.  It was that sense that brought her to the attention of the Lebriga Corporation and it’s there she has worked for the last one hundred plus years.  Slaying demons and the things that go bump in the night with her magic and her charmed Divinity blade by her side.  She’s one of the company’s best hunters and it’s being the best that lands her in charge of their newest recruit, Daniel Summers.  To say she’s annoyed would be a gross understatement.  She didn’t have time for the young, arrogant newbie and has no idea why they higher-ups would have put her in charge of his training.  Even more of an annoyance is the twitching of her one specific tattoo.  The tattoo specifically designed to act up in the presence of a worthy mate.  No way could the arrogant and annoying, albeit really freaking hot, Daniel be her possible mate…..

Daniel Summers still can’t believe he was transferred to the LA office of the Lebriga Corporation.  Hell, if he’s being honest, he still can’t believe seeing all the weird and evil stuff through his life had actually meant something and he wasn’t crazy.  Now he’s here and after meeting the delicious woman in charge of training him, he is thanking his lucky stars for that ability.  The minute he meets Evie, he is totally enthralled.  She’s a real tough ass, but stunningly beautiful and he is determined to get her to think of him as more than her student.  Surely he isn’t totally wrong when he notices her attraction toward him, even if she is trying to pretend it isn’t there.

Daniel and Evelyn have much more than their love/hate relationship to deal with.  While Evie tries to deny her attraction to Daniel and while Daniel tries to get Evie to admit it, things around the demon world are a bit off lately and have reached a bit of a fevered pitch.  Now they must work together to save humanity….and hopefully live through their latest assignment.

I’ve read more than a few series involving demons and demon slayers and sometimes they’re really awesome, and sometimes they are really not awesome.  This is one of the awesome ones.  Not only is the whole premise behind the story a great one, but also the characters are kick ass.  Evelyn has perfected her craft over the years and excels at what she does.  What she doesn’t excel at is the relationship department.  Bottom line?  She’s scared to let someone in.  She’s been around long enough to have seen what happens when a loved one is killed in the line of duty, and it’s nothing she ever wants to endure.  So she’s tough and hard and keeps guys at arm’s length.  I totally get that.  Daniel is adorable.  I loved his sense of wonder when it came to learning all of the magic and battle skills needed to be not just a good slayer, but a great one.  I also loved how he handled Evie.  He figured her out pretty quickly and knew she needed time and a bit of convincing. I won’t ruin anything, but I will say the slow build in their relationship is done deliciously well.  Their push and pull and the sexual tension between them is palpable.

Patricia really pulled me in with this story.  I want to know what happens next with all of the Lebriga and what evil has in store for them in the next books in the series.  Yep, I’m a fan!  Thank you, Patricia, for a series I am totally addicted to…I can’t wait to read more!
