Half demon and club owner Brent Silva lives and breathes control—in all things. He’ll never give into the constant cravings of his incubus side again. Revenge against the ancient demon who almost broke him is all that matters. Until a captivating female, hell bent on pushing him to his limits, storms into his life and makes him hunger for so much more. Waitress Chaya Westbrook is determined to join the war against the demons hunting her kind. And if her first assignment also helps her prove to her maddening boss that she’s more than capable of giving him exactly what he needs, in and out of the bedroom, she’s all for it. But when the heat between them becomes impossible to resist, the dark secrets of Brent’s past are revealed. Will the truth finally set him free or tear away the only female he’s ever loved?

    Demon’s Temptation is book three in the Knights of Hell series by Sherilee Gray. We have known Brent Silva since the first book when he helped Eve and Lazarus and again in book two as Mia’s sister’s boss. Now we get to know him better in his own story. And what a story it is!Brent has come back to Roxburgh to open up another club. But really, that’s just a front. Brent is trying to find someone. Someone that ruined his life. Someone that twisted him into the shell of a person he is today. Someon Demon’s Temptation is book three in the Knights of Hell series by Sherilee Gray. We have known Brent Silva since the first book when he helped Eve and Lazarus and again in book two as Mia’s sister’s boss. Now we get to know him better in his own story. And what a story it is!Brent has come back to Roxburgh to open up another club. But really, that’s just a front. Brent is trying to find someone. Someone that ruined his life. Someone that twisted him into the shell of a person he is today. Someone that Brent won’t rest until he gets his revenge. Brent is half demon and half incubus. He owns the new BDSM club, Toxic. Brent has a dark secret, a past that he keeps hidden in the darkest part of his soul. A secret that eats away at him every single day. Because of that secret, he can never let down his walls. He can never allow himself to feel for the woman that is constantly testing the walls he has built.Chaya Westrook is Mia’s older sister. She worked at the club with Brent before he opened his business in Roxburgh. When he announced he was moving to Roxburgh, she convinced him that she needed to go with him. She said she wanted to be closer to her sister. But in reality, she couldn’t stand to be separated from Brent. It didn’t look like he would ever return the feelings she had for him. Chaya is a demi demon, half demon, half human. All demi demons have a power. Hers is that she is an empathic. There is a war going on. Demons are trying to take over her kind. Chaya wants desperately to help, not only to help win the war, but to prove to Brent that she is worthy of him. “What did she want from him?Why did she stay?Why couldn’t he let her go?” Brent fights his obsession with Chaya with all that he is. He is sure that if she knew the parts of himself he kept hidden, she would despise him. Yet he just can’t stay away. He can’t stand to be any distance from her. Chaya is more than confused with all of the mixed signals she is getting from Brent. While Chaya is on her first assignment for the renegades, she comes to a shocking realization about herself. One that she also believes she must keep hidden because if Brent knew, he would never want her. “He couldn’t let anyone see who he truly was underneath the carefully constructed veneer. But then, he didn’t really know who was underneath it all anymore.” As Brent and Chaya fight with what is between them, the danger increases as Chaya has put herself right in the middle of a situation she didn’t even know existed. Brent’s focus is on revenge. But in a dangerous twist, all of their motives become twisted together. “They’d been dancing around each other. Silently screaming for what the other could give them.” I’ve been so looking forward to Brent and Chaya’s story. I believe you could read this as a stand alone. You just wouldn’t have the connection to the other characters without reading the first two books. It seems like this one is darker than the first two. But I loved the sweet ending. It balanced things perfectly. I also really enjoyed seeing this new side of a newly mated Zenon. (From the previous book.) He is now mated to Chaya’s younger sister, Mia. And not only is he protective over Mia, Chaya is also now his family. And I loved seeing that protective side towards her. This is a quick, gritty, sexy, suspenseful read, and I loved it. Sherilee Gray never ceases to amaze me and I can’t wait for the next book in this series which will focus on the Knight, Chaos. In the mean time, if you haven’t started this series, now’s the time! I hope you’ll love it as much as I have. “Chaya was his drug. She was in his blood and he was hooked.” For more about this book and so many more, come and join me at Carol's Crazy Bookish World.https://www.facebook.com/groups/44036...

    In Demon's Temptation we get Brent and Chaya's story. I have to say this was not at all what I was expecting. This series if full of very strong alpha men and I always saw Brent that way, and he is, but he does have a different side to him we got to see. I would have thought the two sides we see would clash with one another but I gotta give it to the author for making it not only work, but also make it seem natural for Brent's character. That's quite the accomplishment.I've always liked Chaya. S In Demon's Temptation we get Brent and Chaya's story. I have to say this was not at all what I was expecting.

That's quite the accomplishment.I've always liked Chaya. She's a tough heroine who doesn't make it come out in a bad way. I admire a strong woman who really stand up for themselves and she gave that to us. I really wasn't expecting what we learn about her either. Part of what I enjoy in this series is all the many side characters who will become main characters in their own book. Sherilee Gray has got me so curious about Chaos and Zenon in this book blew my mind. I like him even more. I've really enjoyed all three books and look forward to book 4.

No one at the club knew what he truly was… I can’t say it’s a trope I’d actively go looking for in the future, but bigger picture here and there are things that happen in this one that will need to be known as the rest of the main story arc plays out through future books. He couldn’t pretend to be someone-something-else, not with her… Quick and easy to read (even the darker parts of the story are handled with care) I liked that we got too see a little lighter interaction from the Knights as well, I definitely think you need to read this in series order, as although the couples coming together could be viewed as standalone, everything else very much involves the bigger story-line."You make it better… being with you makes everything better."Another good addition to the series, and the set up for the next book was perfectly teased at the end of this one, so I look forward to more in the future.ARC generously provided by the author in exchange for the above honest review.

    I love everything about this world the author has created and have devoured each of the books in the series. Brent’s background added an additional element. When he began his transition he found himself in a completely different place than the heroines of the previous books. His was not a safe, rich landing where he had help to find himself.

His was not a safe, rich landing where he had help to find himself. Instead, it led him into a deep dark place that fed the hungers of his incubus all while twisting him inside.Chaya has been attracted to Brent from the beginning but he keeps himself closed off to her. In an effort to help the rebellion as well as learn how to be what he needs, she discovers a truth about herself she had never realized. With this acknowledgement, she suddenly feels whole in a way she never has before.This couple had a lot of issues to overcome, and even as they made progress, Brent’s past stood between them in more than one way. I loved the how both of these characters yielded to their inner selves even as they yielded to each other. Theirs is a dynamic I’ve never read before and while there were certainly things I loved about it, I’m unsure how I feel about it as a whole. There is no question their characters were richly developed and I enjoyed watching them evolve.I loved the hero and heroine and how they faced their struggles separately and together. The heat is off the charts HOT! Their chemistry is realistic and the way they faced their conflict as well. It is all then topped off with a sweet, sweet epilogue as well as an intro into who our next couple will be. Dual POVSafe (view spoiler)[H has a scene with om after being attracted to h but before they ever start anything; h has a scene with om in an attempt to assist the rebellion – she is topless and he touches her breast and whips her but is stopped by the H (hide spoiler)]Triggers (view spoiler)[the H’s past includes scenes where he was not completely in but his nature led him to crave it each time before it was over – dubious consent (hide spoiler)]

I was intrigued by Chaya and Brent and really wanted their book. I adored that Brent was so alpha and yet yearned to be Chaya's sub. It was surprising yet so delicious as you could see his innate alpha in conjunction with his need to submit to Chaya. Chaya likewise was strong and assertive and knew rightaway she wanted Brent. And when they finally combusted!! GOOD LORD were they pure FIRE!! I loved how Brent and Chaya were both fighting their instincts but ultimately needed to be themselves with one another. This story was just so fantastic!! But now I am seriously dying for Chaos' book! Bravo! 4 stars! ~Ratula

But when the heat between them becomes impossible to resist, the dark secrets of Brent’s past are revealed. Will the truth finally set him free or tear away the only female he’s ever loved?••••••••REVIEW: 3.75 stars—DEMON’S TEMPTATION is the third instalment in Sherilee Gray’s contemporary, adult KNIGHTS OF HELL erotic, paranormal romance series focusing on a group of demon hunters known as the Knights of Hell, warriors whose birth was ordained by the mating of angels and demons. This is Demi-demon(s)and night club owner Brent Silva, and half-demon, waitress Chaya Westbrook’s story line. DEMON’S TEMPTATION can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. An important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary.NOTE: DEMON’S TEMPTATION contains M/M, Domme/sub and BDSM sexual situations that may not be suitable for all readers.Told from dual third person perspectives (Brent and Chaya) DEMON’S TEMPTATION follows the building relationship between half-demons Brent Silva and Chaya Westbrook. Brent Silva wants Chaya Westbrook but his dark and sexually deviant past forces our hero to keep his distance from the woman that calls to his heart. Discovering that Chaya is working for a group of renegades in an effort to help the Knights of Hell, Brent is desperate to prove that they belong together. What ensues is the building sexual and romantic relationship between Brent and Chaya, and the potential fall-out as Brent’s past continues to haunt his days and nights.Chaya Westbrook knows she is not a submissive but trying to convince the man that call to her heart that what she needs is not necessarily what she wants is easier than expected. Brent Silva is a succubus, and as such, his sexual needs are unlike those of most demons and men but trying to hide his nature from the woman he loves wracks our hero with humiliation and shame. Broken and struggling with sins of the past, Brent is unwilling to open up fearing the loss of Chaya’s love.The relationship between Chaya and Brent begins as a working arrangement; a friends to lovers, Domme/sub relationship wherein Brent needs what Chaya is offering, a chance to submit to the woman he loves. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic, and intense.The colourful secondary and supporting characters include Chaya’s sister Mia Westbrook and her demon hunting mate Zenon (Knight’s Salvation #2), Eve and Lazarus (Knight’s Redemption #1), as well as Victor, a man whose interest in Chaya is questionable and misdirected.The world building focuses on the BDSM and Domme/sub relationship between our leading couple, detracting from the demon-hunting/angels and demons aspect of the first two instalments.DEMON’S TEMPTATION is a story of betrayal, secrets, obsession and love. The premise is engaging, captivating and provocative; the romance is impassioned and steamy; the characters are determined, broken and energetic. DEMON’S TEMPTATION is a sensual and sexual look at want and need.Own a copywww.thereadingcafe.com

    I enjoyed this story WAY more than I thought I would! From their first interactions in "Knight's Redemption," it was totally obvious that there was something between Brent and Chaya. So much heat! But he kind of seemed like a jerk to her in that book, so I wasn't sure that I wanted her to get together with him even. Turns out, he was just fighting his own demons, but the guy is totally in love with and devoted to her.

From their first interactions in "Knight's Redemption," it was totally obvious that there was something between Brent and Chaya. So much heat! But he kind of seemed like a jerk to her in that book, so I wasn't sure that I wanted her to get together with him even. Turns out, he was just fighting his own demons, but the guy is totally in love with and devoted to her. Chaya, for her part, is SO over-the-top in-love with Brent that it is almost pathetic. Pretty much everything she does is either to get his attention or try to get him out of her head. Unfortunately, there are those in the story who would and do take advantage of this. Luckily, Brent is there to save her on more than one occasion. Plus, one specific encounter especially, not only draws them closer together, but sheds some light on some interesting areas as well. Just as in the first two books of this series, the primary focus throughout is on the two main players and they're developing relationship. Unlike those, however, this episode deals only superficially with the Knights themselves. There is quite a bit about the overall power struggle with the unknown evil they've all been faced with. Some previously unknown players are brought in to play as well. All of which could have made for a very busy and chaotic story. But the author manages to keep everything in check and not let any of it get too out of hand or overwhelming. And there is the definite feeling that eventually, once we know the whole story, all of the disparate goings on will tie together somehow. This story was unique also in that it features a female/male Dominant/submissive relationship. While this did not at all surprise me about Chaya, it did totally blow me away about Brent. I can honestly say that I did not see that coming... at all! The realization that this is what each of them craves develops rather slowly, and the reader probably sees it before the characters themselves do. But once they embrace it, the interplay really works for them as a couple and for each of them individually. While this is not generally a dynamic that interests me, I found myself quite enjoying the interactions of Brent and Chaya. Although I shouldn't be all that surprised, I think this author could make plain toast sexy.As always, it was fun to see characters from prior books in the series make return performances. I especially enjoyed Zenon in his newly embraced role of big brother (in-law) to Chaya. And it was delightful to meet Grace. I look forward to reading more about this demi ninja in future volumes, most likely alongside Chaos - or, more likely, at odds with him. This was another great addition to the series! I'm glad the author took this little detour to allow these seemingly minor characters to have their time in the spotlight. They definitely deserve it, and they certainly made good use of it. I received a free eBook copy of this title from the author, and have willingly provided an honest review.This book review originally appeared on my book blog, So Few Books, at: https://sofewbooks.blogspot.com/2019/....

But with both Brent and Chaya desperate to explore parts of themselves that they are finally embracing, with each other. It's impossible to stay away. Secrets kept from the Knights Of Hell, threats from the past and present coming at them, Vigilante Demi's and Demons looking to wreak havoc on their city, Chaya and Brent have more than just there own problems to fight against. Demon's Temptation was sexy, intense and another great chapter to this fantastic series. Sherilee Gray writes such complex and beautiful characters, who's emotions roll right off the page. I'm so invested in these characters. And getting to see new sides to them all makes for such a captivating read, that I can't turn the page fast enough. I love the paranormal elements, the angst, the pain, and all the love these characters have for each other. Such a great book to get lost in and I cant wait to get even more from this world of the Knight's Of Hell. ·I was provided a ARC by the author·*JordansBookReviews*
