DiDi’s Review – Demon Seed (Hades Squad #4) by Jianne Carlo

“You speak English flawlessly.” With a hint of an Irish accent. Intriguing.

“Gracias. Languages are easy. Not like the physics.”

What a piss-assed conversation to be having in the middle of the ocean with a woman he’d just rescued from certain gang rape, being shot, and who knew what else. A curvy, luscious female whose virginity he’d just taken in front of four armed men. Talk about the best laid plans backfiring,Demon’s carefully plotted schemeto capture the man who abused him, Pedro Nunez aka The Smiling Killer, was not off to a good start.

“What’s your name?”

“Jacinta Nunez.”

Jacinta claims to have lived her whole life in a cloistered convent. Claims she’s an orphan. Claims she’s only lived in the outside world for fifty-seven days. Yet she’s the mirror image of Pedro’s sister, Rosa.

The sister Pedro murdered fifty-seven days ago.

There are no coincidences in life. Not for a SEAL.

Is Jacinta Pedro’s ultimate revenge on Demon?

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: violence, voyeurism.

DEMON!!!!!   I am going on record as saying Demon’s HEA is up there at the top of my favorites.

Demon has been a mystery throughout the Hades Squad books. I fell instantly in love with Demon at the beginning of the series, scarred, grouchy but you can tell under all that gruffness is a golden heart.

Demon Seed takes place shortly after Devil and Jess’s wedding (DEVIANT DEVIL bk 3).  Demon heads off on a mission by himself and ends up finding much more than he bargined  for.   Jacinta has turned his world and plans upside down since the moment he saved her from an almost gang rape.  Jacinta is a refreshing, funny, lovable heroine. She is innocent, brave, and a master at mixing up idioms.  I just adore her.  I smiled every time she would say to Demon “I should like to say….” and he just melted and cringed at the same time every time she said it, melted because it was cute, cringed because he knew those words meant she was up to something.  For being such an innocent she kept him on his toes and aroused constantly.  Like the rest of the Hades Squad, Demon is a mega alpha, he wants to protect Jacinta from everything and like the Hades Squad’s women, Jacinta is independent and determined to take care of herself. The conversations and bond that forms between the two is heartwarming, funny and sweet.  I love their HEA “from my heart’s bottom.”

There are MANY twists and turns in DEMON SEED.  I never saw the reasons and players behind everything going on coming.   Because there are so many twists and turns I am not going to delve into the storyline, for fear of inadvertently spoiling something.

And THANKS to you Jianne Carlo, my ereader is sitting here, once again, with smoke coming out of it.  I barely saved it from spontaneous combustion while reading the all the smokin’ hot smexin.

Jacinta and Demon are going to stick with me forever, something about the bond they share is timeless and has stolen a piece of my heart.  I might even have to admit I have my first ever girl crush on Jacinta, she is just too damn adorable…shhhhh…don’t tell Demon, unless you think he might like it 😉

I should like to say I can’t wait for the last of the Hades Squad, Satan, to get his story.

  1. Great review! 😀 I have this in my TBR pile for review, and I look forward to reading it. But I haven’t read books 1-3; do you think that will be a problem? Many series are just better when you read them in order, and I’m curious if this is one of those. If so, guess I’m off to buy the first three books! LOL.


  2. The Book Queen…Thank you! You don’t have to read in order, BUT to get the full gist of the HADES Squad camaraderie I suggest it =)

    I think you are going to love it Timitra =)

  3. I read Deviant Devil and wasn’t impressed with Demon. I may have to revise my opinion. But one question. If I read Demon Seed will I find out what his real name is? That was the only reason I wanted to buy this but didn’t because I wasn’t sure. Knowing will solidify my purchase. Don’t want any spoilers just want to know his name.

  4. mrs. z, Demon was hard to like in DD but I still had a soft spot for him. I think you might get a different opinion about him in Demon Seed

  5. Oh my, Mrs. Z. You didn’t like Demon in Deviant Devil? I think I fell in love with him, when he stole the tape and gave it Jess, and then wore pink for her? In answer – yes you find out his real name in Demon Seed. But I hope you like the book for more than than.

  6. Oh and I forgot to say. Even though the books are a series, I try to write them totally independently so each one can be read on its own. You’re the judge in deciding if I do that right.

  7. I have been waiting for this book forever. I have been wanting Demon’s story since the first book. Thanks DiDi for such a great review.


  8. oh and IMO cover model fits Jacinta, not often a cover model matches what my mind sees the characters as =)

  9. Thank for dropping by and leaving a comment everyone, you’ll all be entered in my new contest – prize still undetermined – Kindle or NOOK?

  10. This sounds interesting. I have seen a couple of the paranormal books that are interesting me. I am going to give this genre a try. Thanks for the review.
