Review – ‘Wicked Pleasure’ by Nina Bangs


Brynn McNair may seem heaven-sent to the women who hunger for his body, but he’s actually a cursed demon of desire driven to fulfill women’s erotic needs. In the Castle of Dark Dreams, he’s found refuge playing a sexy prince in nightly fantasies. The castle, part of an adult theme park, is the best thing that’s happened to Brynn in centuries.
Kim Vaughn wants an ordinary life. Unfortunately, she’s agreed to destroy demons—it’s a family thing—until she can find a normal guy and marry him. But finding Mr. Right in her line of work won’t be easy. Especially when the latest demon she’s supposed to off is so totally tempting...


In book two of the Castle of Dark Dreams series, Brynn McNair (a demon of sensual pleasure) can’t be around a woman for more than an hour without feeling compelled to strip naked and offer the woman sex. If he doesn’t, he’ll be in horrific pain until he makes the offer.
Kim comes from a long line of demon hunters, but wants to be normal to the disappointment of her family. Her and Brynn’s friendship builds fast, but they both believe it can’t go beyond that.
I really enjoyed the story. I soooo wish I could wrap poor Brynn up into a non-sexual hug and just take care of him for a while. I really would’ve liked to have known about his human life, but at least Ganymede explained the curse. Likewise, I also wanted to know if Kim’s hunter family will accept Brynn in her life.
The side characters were great. It’s been a year since book 1, and Eric and Donna are married. Holgarth is still as snooty as ever, Sparkle is sexy and wild, Asima’s back and driving Conall crazy, and Deimos gets a girlfriend (so sweet!). We also meet some new characters. Ganymede is a cosmic troublemaker just like Sparkle, and he’s her boy toy. Fo and Gabriel look like highly advanced cell phones, but they’re really demon detectors with human personalities.
The book is well edited, but sometimes the characters’ inner monologues and drawn-out thoughts slowed the pacing. As with book 1, the characters rarely cursed, so this is a great book to read if you prefer it when bad boys have hot sex but talk mostly clean.
4 Stars
