My Dangerous Pleasure (My Immortals #4) - Carolyn Jewel Strong-willed and independent, Paisley Nichols is used to taking care of herself. But when an insane mage begins tracking her every move and threatening her at every turn, she has no choice but to put her life in the hands of a demon. Burned by betrayal, demon assassin Iskander won't get too close to anyone. He spends his days serving his warlord and his nights indulging in carnal pleasures . . . and that's exactly how he likes it. But when a mage wages a wrenching psychic assault on his beautiful tenant Paisley, Iskander must defend her. Under his protection, she will be drawn irresistibly into his life and learn about her own mysterious powers. And not a moment too soon. The mage haunting her isn't acting alone-and he won't rest until he destroys both Paisley and Iskander.

I fell in love with a blog post about this book on Heroes and Heartbreakers and then went and read the first chapter on Ms. Jewel’s website, then finally caved and bought the book. I felt a little confused in the middle of the book with certain character’s and what was going on and how people meet etc but other than that, as My Dangerous Pleasure was the fourth book in the Witches series I felt that it was an otherwise great book to start with. I really liked Iskander I thought he was a great hero and guy for Paisley, they really suited each other and made My Dangerous Pleasure such a sweet and fun read.
I think the blurb really does sum the book up without giving away any spoilers or giving you the whole story. There’s a really humorous scene in the book with another character sna Paisley about some brownies which really made me giggle! I really enjoyed the other character’s in the book and plan to at least go back and read the first book and see how this series starts, after that though I’m not sure if I’ll read any more in the series because although I enjoyed the book and the different twist with the idea of demons/fiends I’m not 100% sure this is the series for me.

Favourite Quotes:
“They ended up stretched out on the couch with his body over hers, and while he was French-kissing her for all he was worth, he thought dirty thoughts about Paisley and sex, but he kept coming back to thinking up ways to make her want to stay with him.”

“It means she’s been free to find someone who won’t treat her badly. Hmm?” Her eyebrows quirked. “Do you treat her well, young man?”
“As well as I know how.”

Overall, I enjoyed My Dangerous Pleasure it was a fun, sweet and interesting read but I would suggest people read this series in order.
