Series: Dark in You 
Author: Suzanne Wright

Part of a small demon lair in North Las Vegas, tattooist Harper Wallis lives a pretty simple life. That changes overnight when she discovers that her psychic mate, or ‘anchor’, is a guy who’s rumored to be the most powerful demon in existence. Compelling, full of secrets and armed with raw sexuality, Knox Thorne is determined to claim her as his anchor, creating a psychic bond that will prevent their inner demons from ever turning rogue. The billionaire also wants Harper in his bed. She’s not so sure she wants either of those things. No one seems to know what breed of demon Knox is, only that he’s more dangerous than anything she’s ever before encountered. But he refuses to walk away. And when an unknown danger starts closing in on Harper, it seems that Knox is the only one who can keep her safe.

As Prime of his Las Vegas lair and a successful businessman, Knox Thorne is used to being in control. He’s also used to people fearing and obeying him. Harper does neither, which unexpectedly amuses him. Unpredictable, elusive, and complex, she draws Knox and his inner demon like nothing ever has. Knox is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Harper. He’ll have her, and he’ll keep her safe from the threat that looms over her. Because Knox protects what’s his. He won’t allow anyone to take her from him. Even if it will mean letting the demon inside him rise and wreak the havoc it was created to make. 
 
Original Review | September 2017 | Original Rating: 4 Stars

Wow oh wow! This was so good! Knox Thorne please have your way with me! Okay now that I’ve got that out the way…

I’ve had this sitting on my amazon wish list for a hot minute, I finally bought and I’m mad I didn’t do it sooner! I haven’t read paranormal romance in a while and this scratched my itch.

Knox and Harper were exactly what I look for in my main characters. He was protective and charismatic. I would not want to piss this man off! He was a damn savage. Harper was witty and took no shit all the while she got over her fear of letting people in and gave into Knox.

The suspense was there and the sexy moments were hot enough to burn through the pages. I can’t wait to see what the next book has in store.
 
Feelings Change
I read this back in 2017 and really enjoyed it. I’ve been in a reread mood and decided to pick this one up. I really thought that this one would hold up for me, but unfortunately it didn’t.

The lack of distinguished POVs and the show and tell dragged my rating down for this one. There was no letting the reader know that we changed POV from Harper to Knox and that was so confusing. Even more, both of them sounded exactly the same. The writing was very show and tell and that didn’t work for me when it came to the relationship between our two main characters. The sex scenes were fine, but who wants just fine sex scenes? Towards the end though, it became repetitive and seemed to be used for filler.

I didn’t remember not liking Harper in the first go around. This time she irked me here and there. I liked that she didn’t let Knox take over her life completely, but her tough girl persona was a bit much at times.

All in all, my rating did change from the first time I read it. I ended up dropping my rating and I’m not really interested in reading the rest of the series.
