Nightmares of Apollyn (The Second Circle duology Book 1) by Meagan Bates

Nightmares of Apollyn is another intense, forbidden story that will capture your soul! 

From the blurb:

Beckett hasn't been afraid of monsters since he was a child.
But now there's a monster under his bed calling him by name.

How could he be afraid of monsters when his love for the occult runs deep?
What if this one is over six feet tall, beautiful, and desires only him?
He can’t be afraid of him; the demon born a cambion of the sin of lust, king of the Second Circle, Apollyn.
He soon means more to Beckett than he could have ever predicted. Beckett’s darkness runs almost as deeply as Apollyn’s.
Beckett was selectively born a human meant for sin and darkness.
While the half-human side of Apollyn starts to resurface causing tension within his kingdom, war with the Ninth Circle is now threatening this new-found bond that’s shared between them.

The bond between the human soul and supernatural being is only breakable by heartbreaking death.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

A different genre than I normally read but was definitely intrigued and enamored by its contents! Megan continues to deal out captivating stories filled with angst, lust and hunger.  The forbidden aspect of this one captured my attention, holding it hostage until the very end.

There are no words to describe Apollyn and Beckett except scorching! Their connection was instantaneous, continuing to build throughout the books entirety. I mean, Apollyn is my type of crazy and apparently Beckett’s, too. And their chemistry!  My insides were going crazy with desire!!!
