The psychopath inside me clawed to be free and soon enough, I would oblige him. I would let him loose on all who were involved in this.

But in the process of club troubles, Demon gets arrested and Kira gets taken. As Demon struggles to control his inner monster, he fights to save Kira and their unborn child while dealing with a traitor, the FBI, the rival biker group The Hells Henchmen, and an enemy known only as The Foreigner.
I went back and forth on whether I wanted to do one book review on both Demon’s Savior and Demon’s War by Courtney Dean. The decision was made easy when I began to think of how I experienced both stories.
I first borrowed Demon’s War from the kindle unlimited library and then when I realized that it was the second story in a series. I’m not saying that you need to read Demon’s Savior to read Demon’s War but it will definitely help clear up any moments of confusion you may have.
So to the actual review of these two stories …
The first chapter I read in Demon’s War I could deduce that there was a traitor situation amongst the MC, but the villain was hiding in amongst the brothers. I wasn’t until the beginning of the second chapter that I felt that I had missed some vital information that I felt I would need to be able to connect with the story going forward.
But, before I picked up Demon’s Savior my eyes got caught on some of the reviews that weren’t painting this story in such a favorable light. For one, there was mention of the romance between Demon and Kira happening too soon and in a way that was unrealistic to either of their situations. Comments like these concerned me because usually when this aspect is present in romance stories that tells me that the author could be rushing the romance and not for reasons that I would like.
Still wanting to give this series and this author a chance I borrowed the book anyway and dived into it and tried to keep an open mind. Thankfully my leap of faith somewhat paid off.
I can’t remember if the synopsis mentions that Demon’s Savior was a bwwm (black woman, white man) romance, but I’ll mention it here since this was one of the reason I chose to pick the two stories at the beginning of this series out of many other bwwm story options Amazon Kindle has to offer. So, because Demon’s Savior and Demon’s War by Courtney Dean fell under the sub-sub-sub genre of bwwm romance I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to encounter some half-assed, stereotypical story that usually accompanies a black woman and white man falling in love.
The author did a good job of constructing a storyline, plot, conflict, and resolution of these two stories but I felt that there was hardly, almost completely absent, character development with any of the characters within these two stories. There were moments when the author would provide some background for the characters we had read about in Demon’s Savior but as she continued the trend in Demon’s War you sort of feel bombarded with information overload because she introduces so many new characters.
I will say that my interest in the other stories that might come out of this series is on the slim side simply because there’s not much more I want to know about these characters, but I may add any new releases to my TBR (to be read) list if I’m in the mood to read a bwwm story.
