If I'm not working my ass off at my stepdad's store, I'm being used by him and his son to quench their thirst for power and control.

But there's a silver lining.
I've been saving money for a while. And the demon summoning kit is finally here and I have the chance of a lifetime.
The chance to exact revenge.

Or will I find myself bound to yet another monster?

Jacquie's Review:

My Demon Charming might be set in the Cursed Hearts universe, but I think it stands on its own.

Yu-jin summons a demon, Lucien, to get revenge on his step family and finds a whole lot more.

Since it's a novella, I got through this really quickly. It's fast-paced, with plenty of action and a fair bit of steam.

I really liked both main characters and am looking forward to the next part of the trilogy. The last part of Lucien's chapter made me laugh.

Luckily, these will be released close together, so we don't have to wait long for the next installment.

Molly Otto's review:

Well, that is one way to start a new darker themed series! When I say this novella in intense, I mean that in the best way possible! It is pure dark perfection when Yu-jin summons Lucien he doesn't expect to find his perfect match in all the ways. Together, they will be a force to be reckoned with. What a fantastic novella! Cannot wait to see what Rhys has in store for us next with this s

Tw: On page SA and graphic violence
Don't worry, the graphic violence happens to the evil people, so all is happy in the end.
