My Demon Husband, Possessive Love by Jax Stuart

My Demon Husband is the story of a witch named Toby who makes the mistake of summoning a powerful demon instead of the animal familiar he was going for. But can it really be called a mistake at all if it's the best thing that ever happened to him? 

From the blurb:

He was supposed to summon a familiar, not a husband!

After numerous failed attempts to summon a familiar necessary to guide his considerable magic, Toby was down to his very last try. They would never accept him as a full-fledged member of his birth coven without a familiar. He didn’t know which punishment was worse; exile or binding his powers forever. Everything was against him, including his abnormally powerful magic and an enemy hiding in plain sight. When the spell takes a dramatic turn, poor Toby is unprepared for the consequences.

Zephyrin is desperate to no longer be the screw up of the family. His parents have had enough on their plate dealing with a family curse. Even knowing that he could be lost to them forever, Zephyrin answers the surprising call for his summoning. After meeting his summoner, Toby, he's positive that he is destined to be by his side as his husband. Maybe having a witch in his corner could break the curse, that is, if Toby lets him visit home.

Unfortunately, Toby has troubles of his own. Can they work together to find a solution to both their problems before the Witch Council tears them apart?

My Demon Husband is a standalone paranormal romance between an overpowered witch and a demon with control issues in the multi-author Possessive Love series.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

I must start off this review with saying that Zephyrin is fucking precious and I will hurt anyone who says otherwise. OK, now that that's settled, I can begin my review. Poor Toby. Someone is working against him and it may be someone who is closer than he thinks. Year after year, he attempts to summon his familiar without success. No one can have that bad of luck, especially a powerful witch like Toby. When it comes to his last attempt before probable exile, at best it turns out that Toby finally succeeds... except his familiar is definitely not what or rather who he expects.

Zephyrin is a demon who adores his family regardless if he's known as the family screw up. When he's randomly summoned, he decides to answer the call of fate and go. I'm certain he had no idea the drama his summoning was about to ensue. The first meeting between Zeph and Toby was not all hearts and rainbows. It was actually rather traumatic if I think about it. However, it didn't take long for Toby to realize what a gift he had in summoning Zeph as his familiar. These two were just so adorable. I loved how Toby made sure that Zeph wanted him for him and not due to some sense of duty. Toby respected him as an equal. It was more than Zeph could have hoped for and he was already smitten just from the sight of Toby.

As this is a novella, the plot was pretty fast-paced as was the romance. It was also super sweet. I loved how protective Zeph and Toby were of each other. They proved that they were each other's top priority and I don't think either of them could have found a better match for a surprise husband.

Angel's Review:

I love all things paranormal and magic. This book was full to the brim with both of those themes! Toby is a witch whose magic always seems to go haywire. It doesn't work or listen to him as it's supposed to. He has one more chance to get this spell right or else. Upon him attempting the spell once more, instead of him summoning a familiar, he ends up summoning a... Husband?

Zeph and Toby are such a cute couple! I really like this story. It was funny yet still had serious moments. It had action scenes, along with a budding romance between a witch and a demon prince. I thought this book was well written and had terrific characters! I really hope Jax writes more books that takes place in this world cause I don't want to leave it yet. I feel like there is so much more to discover and learn! I liked how Jax wrote about the curse that has played Zeph's family for decades. I do wonder about Oscar's character. I haven't decided if he's a bad guy or just someone who got taken advantage of.  

Overall, a really great book to read!

SNik's Review:

Part of a multi-author series (Possessive Love) but all are standalone stories. Paranormal. 

Toby is a witch in need of a familiar in order to stay with his coven, and his many attempts at summoning have all failed spectacularly. When Zephyrin receives a summons, he knows that it is fate, and he willingly allows himself to be brought to the human realm to be bonded. 

Luckily, everything feels right between Toby and Zeph. They just need to overcome a bunch of obstacles, including Toby’s coven and Zeph’s family’s curse. 

An enjoyable adventure where Toby and Zeph never waver in their commitment to each other and find that even though they are bonded, they like and eventually love each other and don’t mind a little possessiveness between them. 

Both Toby and Zeph are likable and kind, and with a set of supportive characters to help them, they really can take on any adversity.
