LGBTQ, Paranormal with Romantic Elements
Since moving into his new townhouse, Caleb has had fantasies about his gorgeous neighbor, Devin. When the two start seeing each other, Caleb can scarcely believe his good luck. He soon falls head over heels in love with the sweet, sexy ballet dancer. It seems nothing can drive them apart.
Then one night Caleb kills a serial rapist in self defense and afterward is plagued by a voice in his head that stirs violent sexual cravings. Each night the cravings become almost unbearable and Caleb fears he is losing his mind. His attraction to Devin and the desires of the sex demon that has possessed him are a dangerous combination.
To keep from attacking the man he loves, Caleb breaks off their relationship and buys a security cage with a time release lock. He spends each night inside the cage, consumed by a need to feed his sexual hunger. No one can understand his obsession, or so he thinks.
Despite his seemingly happy life and gentle disposition, Devin fully understands obsession. After battling his own demons for years, he knows they can be beaten and he refuses to give up his lover without a fight.

I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this one, but I was pretty intrigued by the combination of a dancer and a carpenter. Dance is something I will always be fond of and carpentry is pretty familiar when it comes to my private life, so why not see what this author made out of it.
Caleb has been fascinated by his dancer neighbor Devin since the moment he saw him, but he took a while to gather the courage to approach him. Once he does, they hit it off right away and start a relationship. However there is a rapist lurking on the streets and Caleb happens to stop his crime one night, accidentally killing the perpetrator.
His life heads south from there as he suddenly starts hearing a voice in his head and feels the uncontrollable urge to have sex. It makes him afraid of what he might do to Devin so he breaks up with him and tries to handle his issue alone.
Devin eventually does find out and the problem does get solved but the path to that moment was paved with interesting situations.
My favorite character in this story was Caleb's father Al. The guy was hilarious and had me chuckling even before he spoke. But all of the characters were interesting in their own way and brought something to the table. There is instant love in this story as well as a few far-fetched events, but I liked it in strange sort of way. Honestly this book reminded me of an 80's horror/comedy movie My Demon Lover. I couldn't get it out of my head and I probably liked the story more simply because of that fact.
The writing was okay, a bit rushed but with enough funny bits to keep the reader entertained. Saloni Quinby is a promising author whose books certainly have spark.
