ARC Review of Demon You Love by L.A. Fiore

March 20, 2019

Demon You Love by LA Fiore
Anton Scalene
I was born in hell, raised in a nightmare.
I was fifteen when I killed for the first time.
As a child, my dreams were about climbing out of that hell, of being on top of the pile of bodies and not one of them.
I live in the shadows, find solace in the darkness.
Until her.
A chance meeting, a fleeting moment…
Her innocence beguiles me.
I want her, but to have her would destroy the very part of her I crave.
And even knowing that, I can’t stay away, until my past threatens to drag her into my nightmare.
Letting her go is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but a demon has no business falling in love with an angel.

My Review


L.A. Fiore creates some of the most beautifully broken heroes I have ever come across!! Anton stole my heart right from the start and held on so tight that even though I'm at the end of his story, he still won't let go. And I don't want him to!!

So who is Anton? A man who is loving and protective and successful and generous and beautiful and sexy and simply amazing. A man who scraped and clawed his way from the gutter. Born and abandoned in an alley, he grew up without a name. He was an object, a possession, something to be passed around with absolutely no regard for his wellbeing. He was alone and desperate, but a fire burned within him. It raged to escape his beginnings, to right the wrongs done to him and so many others. He bided his time and took back what little he had of his life. He grew into someone he always dreamed of - no longer worried about what he'd eat or where he'd sleep. He'd found a family to call his own, friends to rely on, and a lifestyle that suited him. But he was still alone... until Piper.

Piper was all that Anton envisioned as beautiful and pure. She was young, but her soul was wise. She was kind and warm and real. She was everything he was searching for without really looking. She was perfection, at least for sweet Anton. She always dreamed of being a dancer and her dreams were just about to come true, but with a new man in her life, her dreams expanded to include him. With Anton, she realized that dreams really do come true.

I loved these characters so much! I admired how the author made Anton shine and how his glow only brightened when he became involved with Piper. I also loved how easily Piper saw beyond his facade, seeking and touching the man so very few were allowed to see. And how even when his darkness came to the surface, she never feared him or questioned him or doubted him. Not once.

She'd just seen the demon under the gentleman, and she still looked at me with love in her eyes.

Together, these characters explored a tale full of pain and so much loveliness that I never wanted it to end. They made my heart feel so full and were quickly added to my list of favorites. Reading this story, it's very easy to see why Fiore tops my list of must-read authors!!


  1. Wow, that's a lot of praise! I enjoy reading Fiore, so I guess, I really do need to pick this one up once it becomes available. Great review hun♥

    1. I'm telling you, she's one of my favorites and I don't say that lightly. I HAVE to read everything she writes. It's an addiction! 💙
