The offices of Karmic Consultants are in turmoil. A demon is threatening an important wedding and business goings-on have scared off every receptionist the temp agency has sent them until optimistic and perky Brittany Hylton-VanDeere walks through the door. A wedding to plan? No problem. How hard can salvaging flowers, a dress, the bridal cake and finding a new reception hall be? Nothing can damper Brittany’s outlook - not even knowing office romances are against company policy - and she has her eye on the sexy tattooed hunk who happens to be a talented exorcist.

Luis Rodriguez is a first rate exorcist but he’s tired of the local desperate housewives summoning demons just so they can spend a little time with him. He also doesn’t know what to make of Brittany. How can one person be so bright and chipper? He doesn’t understand her outlook on life but protecting her from a malicious demon opens his eyes, and his heart, to her charms. As the wedding date approaches, the danger increases and if Luis doesn’t find a way to find and banish the demon, the demon might stop Brittany permanently.

The Sexorcist is the latest release in the fun and creative Karmic Consultants series. It’s a fast paced and well written contemporary paranormal release filled with unique and unusual characters, a quirky premise and fun, snappy dialogue that’s guaranteed to keep your attention from beginning to end. Oh, and let’s not forget the intense attraction and blistering hot sex between Brittany and Luis. While these two lovers make up the backbone of the story, characters met in previous releases add great fun, a little chaos and some amusing situations that left me chuckling.

I love Brittany and her optimistic personality and I even love her over-the-top enthusiasm for life. Having a main character be the recipient of a heart transplant was unexpected, but I appreciate and applaud Ms. Andrews for the realistic touch. Brittany’s sweet, funny, outgoing and never let the ho-hum’s- of-everyday-life dampen her boisterous spirits. I enjoyed the addition of her caring parents that are still obsessed with her health, ten years after her successful surgery.

Luis is the epitome of an in-control Alpha male and once Brittany is threatened, the tattooed hunk goes into full protection mode. He’s loyal, talented, intense, dedicated and passionate in his desire to save the woman he’s come to care for.

The premise that a malicious demon is trying to disrupt a wedding is fun and unexpected, as is the reason behind it. I won’t divulge the who or why but let’s just say that Karmic Consultants owner, Karma, is less than pleased and vowing retribution.
