Review: Demon Dreamer: A Captive Souls Story by Vivi Anna

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
Born a seer, Kiara Brodie has always been feared for her power to see others' fantasies. She's fine with that-it keeps the men of her Irish Gypsy caravan at bay. She wants more than this transient life. A letter from her estranged father, summoning her to Louisiana, could be her long-awaited chance to put down roots.

She finds two half-sisters she never knew she had, and an old mansion haunted by a darkly sexy demon who inhabits her dreams. At night he whispers to her of carnal delight, enticing her on a journey of extreme pleasure-and pain.

Malvo knows just what to do with the curious woman who wandered into his lair behind the library bookcase-lock the door behind her and make her a lustful proposition she can't refuse. He seeks to temporarily ease his lonely torment, but Kiara's willing and wanton response opens his eyes to the possibility that she is his path to his own salvation.

If only she is willing to remain captive to his every sinful desire-forever.

Warning: Contains every sinful fantasy you have ever secretly entertained-including some of the deadly ones. Being bad was never oh, so good!
My Take: This was one of my wishlist books just a few days ago. And now it's on my Kindle.  Awesome.

If you're looking for deep backstory on our heroes, this might not be the book for you.  This is more along the lines of  "meet, fuck, fall in love".  In that order. Yeah, it's hot and everything and I'm all for the occasional totally shallow book with mindless sex, but ... no, there is no 'but'.  A lot of me is about the shallow mindless sex books.  Geez, what does that say about me?

So, this is part of a three book series. The three sisters all arrive at the ancestral mansion at roughly the same time (I assume) but they don't really have any interaction until the end.  What does that mean?  You can pretty much read these books in any order you'd like.

The length of the story itself doesn't leave a lot of room for a ton of emotional draw from our main characters.  They show up, they state their issues, they made mad monkey love (or demon love, I mean, he is a demon) and they find a way to break the curse.  It's pretty standard, there aren't a lot of surprises plot wise, but I still enjoyed it.

It's fun, sexy, fairly mindless entertainment.  Yes, I will doubtless be reading the other two in the series.
