Sometimes I liked to imagine, just for a second, that I was plain old Evelyn with nothing better to do in the morning than lie here with her man.

But that’s not how it was. That’s not who we were…

Evelyn Brighton and Daniel Summers are demon hunters, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Or would they, given the choice again?

Los Angeles is crawling with demons in disguise, and Evelyn and Daniel are a dynamic and fearless demon-slaying duo. Under the authority of Lebriga Corporation and protection of their Divinity blades, this duo has never felt more ass-kicking against evil or more in love with each other.

But something is rotten in the state of home demonstration parties—and it’s not because a seal’s broken in the Tupperware. Beautiful Illuminations is the latest rage in home-consulting cosmetics, founded by Annabelle Simmons. But beneath the layers of makeup and human flesh lurks Anabael, a disembodied Spectoral demon that inhabits people and steals their physical form. To a spirit like that, an ageless demon hunter has a body to die for.

And Evelyn just might.

As Lebriga battles Anabael mind, body, and soul, Evelyn and Daniel must draw on the strength of their relationship to win the war against the Spectoral menace. But what if winning the war means losing their love?

*I received a copy of this book in an exchange for an honest review, this in no way influenced my thoughts and feelings on this book.*

I loved Divinity, book one in this series, from the first page. I was so happy to see that the new installment, Entity, did not disappoint. It picks up some time after the events in Divinity, and we see that Evelyn and Daniel are still together and still inseparable. Their tumultuous meeting and stubbornness to realize what they felt for each other in the first book made their story in Entity all the better. This story tested their relationship in a way that felt believable and very emotional.  Along with all of this we get to see more about Evie’s relationship with the other demon hunters in the house and their handlers.

Evie and Daniel are still the wise-cracking, foul-mouth, demon-ass-kicking couple we have come to love. The snark and banter we get between them and all the other members of the house is really fun to read and actually made me laugh out loud a few times. They take their jobs with the Labriga corporation very seriously. They know they are saving lives and they know what they are doing is important. How can you debate that when your boss is the Archangel Gabriel. We even get an appearance from Lucifer himself. What really appealed to me was being able to see Evie and Daniel’s relationship from both of their perspectives. Since the chapters flip back and forth between both of their POVs we really get a full 360 view that’s not common among romance novels. Their feelings were believable and even had me tearing up at one point.

When a particularly heinous demon starts to run amok on Evie’s turf, she knows that as the oldest and most powerful demon hunter in the Labriga corporation she is the only one who can take her down. Anabael is a spectoral, a demon that has no physical body, so she must take over a human body to gain power and influence.  She was once a favorite of Lucifer but she overstepped and now even Lucifer must help take her out in order to keep the balance that keeps humanity alive.

Evie’s mission is straightforward but extremely dangerous and the whole house knows it. Evie’s connection to Daniel could be the only thing that brings her back if Anabael takes over. I’ll keep it spoiler free, but being along for the ride while Evie does her job is filled with suspense and a few edge of your seat moments. Because we stay focused on the hunt for Anabael there wasn’t as much action as there was in the first book but the focus on this one story allows the user to get a the full experience both physically and emotionally of a full mission from both Evie and Daniel.

If you love a kick-ass heroine, a super devious baddie, and a great emotional love story this one is for you. I really liked Divinity, but I absolutely loved Entity! My ranking of this book: five out of five stars!
