The Incubus Lesson - Jana Downs 3 1/2 - 4 Hearts

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

This story is part of a series and is best read in order. Remy has been a bad, bad boy, he lies to get what he wants and picks up women for his bed, but his behaviour and attitude are in response to being hurt five years ago by the man he loved. Now his soul is up for grabs and to avoid Hell he accepts an Incubus contract to become a Hell Hound to Deacon a Class A Incubus. Deacon jumped at the chance to take up Remy’s soul, determined to bring him to heel and enjoy the delights of gay sex, but it backfires when Remy insists on a deal, he will sleep with Deacon but only when Remy has fixed the mistakes of his past. But falling in love was never part of the deal, and they both have to make a sacrifice in order to finally be together.

This is a great story where a different sort of Incubus Contract is entered into. Remy was hurt by his Moon Mate when he caught him cheating since then Remy has slept his way through as many women as he could, hurting them with his callus behaviour and devil may care attitude. Finding himself in the position of an Incubus Contract or Hell Remy takes the easier option and is handed over to Deacon. Deacon is pleased to get Remy’s contract and sets out to prove that Remy will be his, but it is harder than he thought it would be when he begins to have feelings for Remy, but to admit his love would mean becoming mortal.

I really enjoyed this story and loved the clashes and conflicting feelings that both Remy and Deacon have, both characters are very interesting and even though Remy comes across as an Alpha he also has submissive feelings that Deacon draws out. The storyline is really good and I thought Remy’s mumblings and grumblings were funny, Deacon’s sacrifice is sweet and the two together are a great match. This story is well written and gives a different sort of Incubus Contract that was quite imaginative, there’s some slight D/s and some really hot sex and a whole load of love.

I will recommend this to those who love the paranormal, some great twists, stubborn men, hot sex, falling in love and a happy ending.
