Book Review: How to Seduce An Angel in 10 Days + Giveaway

How to Seduce an Angel in 10 Days by author Saranna DeWylde is the third installment in her PNR 10 Days Series. As with previous books, the laughs, innuendoes, sticky situations and romance take up the bulk of the story. I was left with a belly ache from laughing until I cried! 

Drusilla "Tally" Tallow does. Both fallen and otherwise because she's got ten days of Heavenly and Infernal Parole after knocking Falcon Cherrywood from his broom. All she wanted was to settle down with a nice warlock, have babies, and grow old together. But she's got a bad habit of falling for the wrong warlock. She blames Cupid. Too bad her Heavenly Parole Officer is none other than the heart bandit himself--the newly appointed Cupid and current fixture in all her fantasies, Falcon Cherrywood.

After smiting Cupid with a fireball, Falcon Cherrywood must now play the Diapered Archer. He can't think of anything more humiliating than flying around in pink wings shooting arrows into hopeless fools. Archery was never his strong suit and Falcon doesn't even believe in love. But more troubling are the feelings his sinfully irresistible parolee sets off in him--for only Tally has the power to make him believe in things better left to fairy tales, like Happily Ever After.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, this series is for those that loved Harry Potter but wished it had more "adult passion" and a dirty sense of humor. The non-stop jokes in the 10 Days series are over the top and do not disappoint. The hilarious situations these characters get into are so over the top that anything else the story may lack overall is wiped away by the comedic value. These are pure dirty-fun witchy tales. Abundant dark humor for those that love it. 

This time around, our lead couple didn't have much of a ever lasting love vibe, but what they lacked in words is made up for in the romance department. Never a dull moment with this pair, that's for sure! I would have liked a bit more back-story on these two before we came to this point in the saga. A ton of information is dished out but I had no clue before now, just how intertwined these two were. It's all kind of dumped on your lap (literally) at times. I was able to trudge through and finally get into the groove, but this left me a tad disappointed. 

As a stand alone, you could start from here but you will miss out on the past flavors the previous characters had. Nothing here is going to be life changing but that being said, it's not meant to be. Saranna is having fun as a writer and that comes through like a shinning star in all of her books. 

This wasn't the best book in the saga but it's a fun read that's light hearted and will not stop until the last laugh is wrung from your body.

  1. I do follow - baaaaaa! And I haven't had any bad things happen on a date, but I did have the date that would never end. It was sooooo long and boring. Ugh.


  2. I follow on Twitter Facebook and email ;-) and once a LONG time ago I got arrested on a date. I had overdue library books and apparently had a warrant...we got pulled over and I got arrested. He had to go get my mom so she could come get me out of jail. $100 and 2 hours later I was out and headed home. I returned the books paid the library fines and took the reciept when I had to go to court. The charges were dismissed and we got the $100 minus court costs...very embarassing story. And it was the last date with that guy lol!

  4. Worst thing that ever happened was a long, boring date with a guy who couldn't stop talking about himself. Thanks for the giveaway.
    I follow by email.

  5. It's so rare and wonderful to find a PNR that has any humor in it. I always jump on anything that remotely resembles this. Worst date was a set up from an ex (really bad idea)the guy passed out after one beer. I was a quasi biker chick and he was definitely a Buick sedan type.

  6. The worst thing that ever happened on a date for me was it didn't happen. It was our first date and he and a friend were fooling around down by the whirlpool (we lived near Niagara Falls) and he slipped. While I was waiting for him to show up my mother was watching the news and they reported a teen drowning. It was him.

    3. Worst thing that happened on a date? I'm a bit of a clutz, so tripping over my own feet and spilling something on myself. It's been over 20 years since I've dated, and luckily, nothing worse than that sticks in my brain LOL


  11. The worst thing that ever happened on a date was when we ran into his EX who was one of my good friends, and his drunk butt told her off.....that didn't go over so well for her.

  12. My first date: my hands were sweating so bad that he had to wipe his hand off in the movie theater: his fault! He wanted to hold my hand during the movie! Before I got out of the car, he leaned over to kiss me and we bumped noses! We tried again and did it again! So he just gave me a kiss on my cheek!

    Worst thing to happen to me on a date was when we went to listen to local band at a bar and he left with his friends w/out me! He "forgot" he was on a date. Luckily I ran into some good friends of mine and got a ride home. Suffice it to say, we did not have a 2nd date :)

  17. I think the only "bad" thing that has happened on a date would be when hubby and i went to prom... I know taking it back to high school... There was an Ice storm and the power went out ending prom in the middle of the grand march... Good thing he brough the car right up to the doors so my dress didn't get ruined.

  21. I do follow you- like everywhere (twitter, FB, email, etc. sdylion or Sandy Lion- just find me I am there- baaaa) The worse thing to happen on a date is to get a stain on your clothes in any place that makes it really embarrassing.
