Review ~ BETTING ON JULIA by Nina Croft

Small, blonde, bubbly, and with a penchant for all things pink, Julia Melville has always considered herself a nice girl – until she was attacked by a werewolf.  Months later, and still in total denial, Julia spends the time between full moons fantasizing that her life is normal.  And who could be better to help her with that than her new neighbor, handsome accountant, Sebastian Crane. 

For two hundred years, Sebastian, a powerful warlock, has been possessed by a demon.  Each day, his soul grows darker, and he knows that soon he will be beyond salvation.  But the demon loves to gamble, and he’s made Bastian one final bet—get a good woman to say the words “I love you” and he’ll be free. 

Julia wants a normal guy.  Bastian needs a good woman.  Maybe together they can find something far more valuable…redemption.

REVIEW

What do you get when you cross a warlock with a demon?  A tormented hero with an aversion to werewolves, a penchant for BDSM and cage-fighting and the capability of bringing a woman to her knees with his handsome looks and sweet gestures.
Yeah.  Complex.  That's Sebastian Crane.
Half warlock, half fairy, the man has the devil in him.  Literally.  He made a deal with a kinky evil demon and for 200 years has been possessed.  He’s had enough and to end this hell all Bastian needs to do is find the love of a good woman.  Julia Melville is that woman and as sweet and bubbly as she is, she also happens to be in denial at the fact that she is a were-shifter.  This is where I recommend reading ‘Operation Saving Daniel’ as not only was it a super read itself, but it gives the Melville family history, characters cross-over heavily and it sets the scene for ‘Betting on Julia’.
What ensues is an entertaining sexy romp with a couple who have a great chemistry and create heat, humour and heartfelt moments in the immortal world.  Whilst there were no particular surprises in store, it doesn’t detract from another great read from Nina Croft and I look forward to seeing what lies in store for the remaining Melville sisters.
