Demon Restrained by Kelly Apple
Date Read: September 2013
Bas wants out.
Held captive by a crazed Alpha, demon Bastael hates all those he’s come across on the mortal plane. When a damaged werewolf falls into his path, he’s determined to use her and find a way to escape.
Evie wants to be safe.
Abused by her Pack and afraid for her life, Evie hides in the dark corners of the basement. The demon that’s already down there? He’s better than the Alpha upstairs.
But neither of them expects the connection that sets them both on fire.
With the Alpha’s lust for power escalating, Bas and Evie will have to find a way to break free or die trying.
Warning: This book contains one cocky demon and one werewolf who’s stronger than she looks. That’s right, folks… If the basement is a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’!

First Thought when Finished: Demon Restrained was a brilliantly executed short story! That is coming from a non-fan of short stories 🙂
Quick Review: Demon Restrained had great action, great characters, and some awesome smexy! Evie was a spectacular leading lady. Usually I am all about the hero but in this case, I truly think Evie was the hero of the story. Overall it was her actions, her smarts, and her gumption that facilitated the break out. She was just hands down brilliant. Bas was very deserving of her even if at the beginning I wasn’t sure. He was strong, beautiful, and heartbreaking. I say that because some of his thoughts made my heart-break for him. I am really hoping that we get more of Bas and Evie’s story in the future because I feel there is so much more I want to know. That being said, this is a complete story even for a short. There was great world building and action. I wanted more of course but I did not feel like anything was left out.
Final Thought: I know Demon Restrained was the first book written by this author but it doesn’t read that way at all! Everyone should give a whirl!
