Review: Taming Darkness (Taming Darkness #1) by Kat Daemon

Since he was sentenced to earth eons ago, Lucifer has always lived by three simple rules: Humans are toys that are meant to be played with, love is a useless emotion, and the only creature worth fighting for is himself. To him, nothing matters but his own enjoyment, whether it be manipulating those around him, or indulging in the sins of the flesh with Lilith. Then he found young, sweet, and innocent, Maria, who is everything that Lucifer detests. She has devoted her life to her one true love, God. Unable to resist a challenge, Lucifer sets his sights on tempting Maria away from his enemy. Disguising himself as Lucas Starr, he creates a world that not even Maria can resist. He never planned on having the tables turned on him. Imagine Lucifer’s surprise when Maria brings him to his knees and shows him a glimpse of heaven once more.

Blinded by his arrogance and an unlikely vision, Lucifer falls again, this time forgetting that some lines should never be crossed. When his greatest opponent, Michael, shows up, all Hell breaks loose. Will Maria be able to accept Lucifer for who he truly is, or realize what Michael already knows: some destinies can never be changed?

The first book in the new paranormal series featuring the fallen angel, Lucifer is an unexpected and surprising read.  Humans are toys to be played with, love is a useless emotion and the only creature worth fighting for is himself; that is the three rules that Lucifer has lived by since he was sentenced to earth eons ago. Unable to resist a challenge, Lucifer decides to tempt the sweet and innocent Maria away from his enemy, but blinded by his arrogance, Lucifer falls again when the tables are turned on him and Maria brings him to his knees.

This steady paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers intrigued with suspense and another vision of Lucifer’s fall.  The author brings the story to life with vivid imagery and details that capture the imagination and strong compelling characters that are easily related to and draw the reader deeper into the story. The tension builds as the story progresses and the reader wonders if Lucas will be able to achieve his goal, Maria’s soul.

The sex scenes in the story vary from sweet to wicked and steamy to a blazing inferno. The attraction between Maria and Lucas radiates from the pages and the romance is seductive and sensual but sweet at the same time. The reader can’t help but be captivated by their dance around each other, Maria’s innocence against the sinfully hot and sexual Lucas.  The reader can’t help but get caught up in Maria’s story and be taken in by Lucas’ arrogance and charm. But the tale has an unexpected surprise that adds lots of depth and emotion to the story. Lucas has a sweet and tender side that he doesn’t really know what to do with.

While I found the story to be a little on the slow slide, I still enjoyed the fascinating concept and the wonderful characters and I can’t wait to see where the author takes the series next if love can tempt the devil what else is possible?
