My Rating: 4 Stars!
I stopped believing in monsters long ago. But I knew I wasn't imagining things when I found one in my kitchen baking muffins. I'd seen him before: lurking in my closet, scaring the crap out of my five-year-old self. Turns out that was a misunderstanding, and now Maurice needs a place to stay. How could I say no?
After all, I've always been a magnet for the emotionally needy, and not just in my work as a wedding planner. Being able to sense the feelings of others can be a major pain. Don't get me wrong, I like helping people--and non-people. But this ability has turned me into a gourmet feast for an incubus, a demon that feeds off emotional energy. Now, brides are dropping dead all over town, and my home has become a safe house for the supernatural. I must learn to focus my powers and defeat the demon before he snacks on another innocent woman and comes looking for the main course...
With quite a few heavier reads lately, I was so in the mood for something lighter and honestly, just something fun. I got exactly what I was looking for in Monsters In My Closet.
I am a huge sucker for secondary characters that are every bit as fleshed out and fun as the main characters. There is just something about knowing that someone has the protagonist's back that makes a read better for me. I need witty banter, humor, and a strong bond between people and thankfully this book delivered on all counts as well as making the main character downright lovable and endearing.
I had so much fun with this! Zoey was so fun and lovable, this read really did have a bit of it all. Humor, suspense, a slight romance, mystery, great unique paranormals, a great setting, really, need I say more.
I am seriously looking forward to reading book two and it definitely won't take me long to pick it up and dig right in. I can tell that these characters are going to be ones that will stick with me for some time.
