Book Review: Temptation by Fire by Tiffany Allee

Temptation by Fire
by Tiffany Allee
Visions of death haunt her . . .

Ava Keller sees the future. When she suffers a horrifying vision of a man's violent death, she knows from experience nothing she does will stop it from becoming a reality. But when she meets a strong, broken man, he makes her want to believe in second chances.

Vengeance consumes him . . .

Tortured by his past, Karson has worked tirelessly to wreak vengeance on the demons who murdered his family. But when Ava inadvertently disrupts his intricate plan for revenge, his focus shifts to an all-consuming need to keep her alive and in his arms.

Love could save their souls . . .

Thrown together by fate, Ava and Karson explore their new feelings and discover hope for the future. But they must battle the demons threatening humanity to find a destiny worthy of their love.

Vet tech, Ava has what she calls a curse. She can't touch anyone without seeing visions and sometimes the visions are of their death. Her only friend, Miriam knows about her curse and tries to understand and help but will be leaving for medical school soon.

When Karson's family was killed by a demon he left his humanity behind and trained to become a Venator (Demon Hunter). He wants revenge on the demon who killed his family and does what he has to in order to kill the demons who possess humans.

I found the story of the venators to be intriguing. They use the blood from the living humans who have been possessed by the demons to make the tattoos. The blood in the tattoos make them powerful enough to fight the demons. The venators also use runes painted in blood to ward off demons and while reading that I was reminded of the show, Supernatural because Sam and Dean use runes and symbols painted in blood for the same reasons.

The demons in this books are scary, gruesome beasts who get off on torture, pain and fear. They steal energy, feed off the energy of their victims. That's not scary at all. *shivers*

The sexual tension between Karson and Ava was insane. Every time I thought they were going to get down and do the deed, something stopped them. It's like the author was teasing us readers, knowing that all this start and stop passion would keep us on the edge of our seats. But it was well worth the wait. The sex scenes are hot and sweet and not 'G' rated at all, which I really liked.

They have to work together to save an innocent victim and that gets tricky when Karson comes face to face with the demon who killed his family.

If you like demons, demon hunters, boat loads of action, magical tattoos, exorcisms, mythical magical necklaces, and a love story that uncovers the redemption, emotional scars and a love found...then this is the book for you.

I give this book 5 sheep
