"Where There's Smoke" [Good Girl Series, Book 1] by Karen Kelley

My Book Summary : Destiny is a demon-in-training who only needs to catch/sign-up one more soul before she'll be able to become a demon and have everything she desires, or at least this is what she was told and believes. She now has one week and one day back on Earth to be able to find a person who's willing to give their soul up to her, and she thinks she has found the perfect person in Chance.

But little does she know that Chance knows who and what Destiny is and has his own agenda. As being, a nephilim (a immortal who has a mortal for a mother and an angel for a father) he and his "brothers" work to answer prayers and save the souls of the mortals on Earth as much as they can. Destiny being Chance's latest "project" is going to be tougher then anything Chance has ever dealt with before, because they have an instant chemistry and a strong attraction between them that sparks every time that they are around each other.

Then because of their budding relationship, will either of them be willing to follow through with their plans?? Will Destiny really want to condemn Chance to hell for eternity? Can Chance save Destiny's soul for the price of never to be able to be with her again??

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars, good vs. evil in it's most extreme but can love concur all? This is an intriguing start to this series!! I loved the characters! Destiny and Chance were a wonderful match that I couldn't get enough of!! Plus, Ryder, Dillon, and Hunter were hilarious in their antics---I cannot wait to read their books.

Even so, I really didn't like the plot that much. I mean I understood it and I enjoyed it right up until Destiny first says, "I love you," to Chance but then there were way to many misunderstandings and it all felt so rushed that I couldn't give this novel a higher rating then I did. I wish I could have liked and enjoyed it more but I just couldn't.

Yet I hope you to enjoy it and I recommend it to those who like reading about angels and sort-of demons getting together.

Author's Book Trailer :

Book Teaser(s) :
She sauntered strolled out of the room. He couldn't take his eyes off the seductive sway of her hips, and when there was nothing else to watch, her essence lingered. If he was that susceptible to her charms, what was it going to be like when he had her naked? His dick jerked at the image that created.
Deep breath.
He creathed in, then out, then in---
You're hyperventilating, idiot! He slowed his breathing down and the lights stopped dancing in front of his eyes.
Better.
He could do this. He only had to remember what was at stake. Chance wasn't about to let a damned demon torture Destiny for all eternity. ~ within Chapter 5
Something banged hard against the wall. "What the hell was that?" He paused.
"Demon," she gasped.
For a moment, he couldn't breathe. There was a demon nearby? That went in the bad column.
"Demon. Neighbor. Battle-axe," she panted. "Same thing. Please, go back to what you were doing," she begged.
Destiny was greedy. He liked that about her, and as long as she wasn't talking about a real demon, Chance was happy to oblige. ~ within Chapter 12
