I moved to reading this series after reading the hex series. Thoroughly enjoyed the mix of characters. Give it a go.

If you enjoy fun paranormals it's a must read. 30 Mar 2011
By Sia McKye Over Coffee - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the third book, by Linda Wisdom, I've read. If I had to classify her writing I'd say she writes sexy humorous stories with sparkling characters, a hefty dash of danger, and a serious thread of kick ass heroine. Some of her stories are more kick ass than others and this was one of them. I'd say it was my favorite of the three I've bought and read.

Maggie is in law enforcement. Like her counterparts on today's forces, she is a well trained in defense, the use of weapons, and working undercover. Maggie is also good at her job in both research and connecting the dots to bring down the bad guys. The tedious parts.

However that's where the similarity between today's law enforcement officers and Maggie end. She works for a secret branch of para law enforcement called The Hellion Guard. They police otherworldly creatures and keep humans and other creatures safe from bad guys. Instead of Kevlar she wears fabric enhanced with protective spells and a diamond encrusted Black Widow Spider with ruby eyes. Looks like a kick ass tat but is very much alive and part of her arsenal. Did I mention she was also a witch?

Maggie is a serious career girl, hasn't had a date in way too long to remember, and feels she hasn't a maternal bone in her body and doesn't want one. She has very little trust for demons as most of them have an agenda and usually on the receiving end of her brand of justice.

Ms. Wisdom then throws her into the worse case scenario and fun begins. Maggie reluctantly becomes a godmother to one of her team member's newborn--has to be there at the birth (eww and nausea). She's assigned to be a loving guardian of a teenage girl (I can't print her reaction here) who's all mouth, attitude, and just so happens to be #1 on the list for a Mayan human sacrifice designed to free a major bad guy. And worse of all, her libido starts doing the hallelujah chorus when she meets Declan who is half demon and redefines hot sexy male and is her partner in protecting said teen. Yowza.

The only predictability in this story is good guys winning over the bad guys. How that happens leads the reader into a labyrinth of unexpected twists and turns and a very satisfying dénouement.

This is truly a fun, fun story told by a talented author who seamlessly blends paranormal, danger, humor, and love.

3.5 out of 5 rating...Review from So Many Books, So Little Time 21 April 2011
By A. Howell - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Okay, first off let me say that normally I find the guys on these types of books to me too much--too many muscles, too much hair, etc. But the guy on this cover, yum! Okay, just had to get that over with :)

Maggie is one kick-butt character. I loved her! I loved her feisty and sarcastic attitude but with that touch of girliness and slight maternal instinct. I also enjoyed Courtney and Delcan (Half fire demon but completely hot!) It was a nice cast of characters. Even the elf Sybil (who I love the picture in my head of having lavendar wings..but this seems more faery than elf) and Elle, the spider tattoo (at first it freaked me out but then I grew to enjoy her).

There was some action in this story, but not too much. Just enough that it kept my attention but didn't turn me off to the story. Overall, just a fun paranormal read.

Overflowing with witchy awesomeness 25 May 2013
By RabidReads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I hadn't originally planned on reading this series but when A Demon Does it Better became available for review I quickly changed my mind. Only having to read one book in order catch up on Linda Wisdom's Demons series is an easy task. Demons Are a Girl's Best Friend's colorful characters, whirlwind pace and happy ending make this novel easy to love. This is my second witchy read this week and I'm beginning to think that my perception of them is all wrong! Maggie is a powerful, no-nonsense preternatural who's so badass I'm scouring my thesaurus trying to find an adjective that does her justice!

So far, the characters in this series are amazing! Aside from Maggie's kickassedness, her flame Declan is my dream guy (I know, he's taken but a girl can fantasize). He's part fire demon and that trait alone makes him HOT! I'm an Aries so I love the color red and anything that's flame related. Stereotypical much? Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Declan's got a lot more going for him than just his sex appeal; he's also smart, family-oriented, holds his own in a fight and of course, is great in bed. I liked how Maggie would mess with him whenever he'd put his foot in his mouth or say something that she didn't like. More than once he found himself wearing his drink or getting rained on in his office. The witch's spells take playful teasing to a whole new level! My favorite character was Elle by a landslide. She's a jeweled, black widow tattoo and part of Maggie's arsenal of weapons. When Elegance isn't dropping witty remarks she's busy researching ways to keep her lovers from dying. I'm sure you're already familiar with the fact that this type of spider eats their mates once the deed is done.

I liked the background story of the Demons world. The guards are an interesting bunch with a wide variety of histories and supernatural traits. I also loved how Maggie isn't your typical witch. She's 700 years old and comes off as something "more" than just human. The plot line captivated me early on. The protagonist ends up stuck playing mom to a teenager which, understandably, ends up being an absolute nightmare! Maggie eventually has to tell her charge that she's a witch but puts a spell on Courtney so that she can't reveal the secret. Only gibberish comes out of the kid's mouth whenever she tries to say something magic-related. This made for a few hilarious conversations about potholes and frying pans!

Demons Are a Girl's Best Friend is a multifaceted read packed with so much good stuff that it's overflowing! I'm very happy with my decision to give this series a try and I'm even happier that A Demon Does It Better is already loaded onto my Kobo. Linda Wisdom is now on my list of must-read authors and I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for her future publications.

Demon's Are A Girl's Best Friend 29 Jan 2012
By Trish Merchant - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was the first book that I have ready by author Linda Wisdom.

Demons are a Girls' Best Friend was a cute and fun read with a good mix of action and romance. Maggie, a 700 year old witch who works for the Hellion Guard policing all kinds of nasties including demons now finds herself working with and attracted to a Fire Demon named Declan. Maggie has to work through her resistance to her attraction to Declan while working with him to save the world from demons who are conspiring to summon an evil god who will inflilct havoc on the mortal world. Easier said than done when Declan's own family seems to be involved in this evil plan.

While I enjoyed this story, I admit that at times I wished there was more development and focus on he main characters, rather than the building of so many other characters and circumstances. I didn't find myself as investede in Maggie and Declan as I would have liked to have been and I attribute that to not having spent much time really getting to know them in a way that allowed me to bond with the characters. I was more connected to Declan than I was to Maggie because the glimpses I got into his life helped you to empathize with him. I just wish we were given more of an insight into who Maggie was than the sarcastic, dare-devil witch out to save the world.

In the end I enjoyed this book enough that I will read the next book in the series.Demons Are a Girl's Best Friend

Bridget's Review 8 April 2011
By bridget3420 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have been a fan of the paranormal genre for as long as I can remember. DEMONS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND is one of my absolute favorites. I was instantly sucked into the plot and couldn't think about anything but reading this book. Linda has made her way into my all-time favorite authors list. If demons, witches and a fun-filled read is what you are in the mood for, this is the perfect book to curl up with.
