Made For Sin by Stacia Kane

How much of an edge in PI work would a demon give a person? Wanted or not, having a demon living in your head has it’s moments…

Publisher’s Description: A lot of bad hands get dealt in Vegas, but E. L. Speare may be holding one of the worst: He’s cursed with the need to commit sins, and if he misses his daily quota, there’s hell to pay—literally. Fortunately, his hometown affords him plenty of chances to behave badly.

But Speare’s newest case really has him going out on a limb. The right-hand man of a notorious crime boss has been found dead in a Dumpster—minus his right hand, not to mention the rest of his arm. What catches Speare’s attention, however, is that the missing appendage was severed clean by a demon-sword, a frighteningly powerful tool of the underworld.

Speare’s out of his element, so he turns to a specialist: Ardeth Coyle, master thief, dealer in occult artifacts, and bona fide temptress. Ardeth’s hotter than a Las Vegas sidewalk on the Fourth of July, but she’s one sin Speare has to resist.

The dismembered corpses are piling up, unimaginable evil lurks in the shadows, and if this odd couple hopes to beat the odds, Speare needs to keep his hands off Ardeth, and his head in the game.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (or, in other words, SPOILERS).

Nervous Nellie says…Nervous_Nellie_100

First of all, this is a paranormal romance that is mostly urban fantasy than romance.  The protagonist is an antihero, which is not my norm. There is a little sex, but not much.  There is some brutal killings and a demon living in the guy’s head and a mystery to solve. Pretty cool, right?

I loved this book, ok? I’m just getting that out there for all the world to see.  The cover guy? Nope, he does not even come close to E.L. Speare, the anithero, and his appearance in my head.  That guy is too pretty for the crap Speare goes through.

badge4v4The ending is perfect.  Nervous Nell warning, it is a bit of a cliffhanger but not so much that it detracts from a good story.  It’s perfect.  It had to end that way to lead in to the next book and I am so very ready to read the next book. Don’t freak out over the cliffhanger warning.  If I liked it I think anyone will, even though it kinda leaves you hanging.  It’s awesome.

The mystery of who and why people are being killed isn’t the focus of the book.  I mean, it is, but mostly what I was reading for was the relationship, how Speare got the demon and how working as a PI helped Speare find a place in the world.  Plus, how do you keep sinning to keep a demon happy?  That was intriguing.
