Getting Familiar with Your Demon (That Old Black Magic, #4)

Getting Familiar with Your Demon (That Old Black Magic, #4) - Jodi Redford 4.5Original review: http://onabookbender.com/2012/07/23/review-getting-familiar-your-demon/I’m going to be honest here. If I had written this review right after I had finished Getting Familiar with Your Demon, there probably would have been incoherent fangirling where I profess my undying love for Jodi Redford and this entire series. Instead, I held off. I can’t guarantee the absence of fangirling, but I promise that it will, at least, be coherent. And I do believe that coherency in reviews, as in life in general, is good.Getting Familiar with Your Demon and this entire series are the perfect escape read. A perfect adult entertainment escape read, that is. It’s not too long, and it packs one heck of an emotional punch. Bad boy demon falls hard (there’s a pun there, and completely intended) for innocent witch. These books have a way of hitting all the things I love in paranormal romance: emotional tug and pull, sex, humor, more sex, clashing of wills, clashing of the wills sex, dark plots to overthrow the world, and sex.Marabella has been a constant figure in almost all of these books thus far, so it was nice to see that she got her own book and HEA. And Sam! I do believe Sam is a fantastic deliciously tortured character. Both literally and figuratively, I suppose. Sam and Marabella together were fun and sexy. But Sam’s cousins, Nikki and Cass really stole some of the show here. They were a blast, and I would love to see more of them in the future.In sum: if you are looking for paranormal romance with an erotic bent, a book that will make you swoon and laugh and pant in delight, then you need this series. Seriously. They are short, sweet, and fun. And there is sex. Have I mentioned that enough? No? There is a lot of great sexin’!
