Evie is pretty much the best hunter the organization has ever had, so when they get a fresh new recruit, she is assigned to train him and they kind of become partners for missions. Daniel is good but he is so new that she sometimes gets frustrated with him. Ok, a lot of the time. She is pretty hard on him at first, but she owns that she is kind of a hard-ass. And I loved watching them train. The book switches back and forth between their two point of views. I can't even decide whose point of view I liked reading more. They both really liked each other but Daniel didn't think Evie would give him the time of day romantically because she was all business, and Evie was just scared out of her mind to have feelings for someone. She is scared of losing them. I get that, but for a while in the first half of the book I was just screaming at her like her best friend, Tess, was to just get with the program and do something about her feelings!
I love Daniel. Evie kept calling him cocky, but I never really saw that in him. Not really, I did see that he was determined and stubborn, but never overly cocky. He did really enjoy pushing Evie's buttons and it was hilarious to watch the two of them together. And when they finally did kiss, oh man. I was cheering them on a little bit. I loved it! And I really liked his determination to find out what her tattoo on the back of her neck meant. It was adorable.
I know that the romance was a huge plus for the book, for me, but there is so much more to divinity than the awesome romance. There is a kick butt action and demon slaying. And cool weapons, and tech and flat out awesomeness. I really enjoyed the demon plot of the story. The demons are up to something big, that's for sure. Divinity is going to be a favorite series of mine. I can just feel it. I need to read the prequel book and the next book in the series ASAP. Fans of paranormal and supernatural NEED to read this series. It had more of a new adult vibe to me because Evie and Daniels characters appear to be around 23, but it is classified as Adult.
*disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my thoughts.
Who knew Los Angeles has so many demons running around? I sure didn't. In this story, they are everywhere, living amongst the humans. Evelyn (who also goes by Evie, Ev, and E) works for the Lebriga Corporation. A fully-loaded, state-of-the-art mansion off of Mulholland serves as the Los Angeles branch of Lebriga. This is where Evelyn, the other hunters, their handlers, and their boss live. I must say that I just loved the dynamic and banter between all the characters. They are a tight-knit group who take fighting demons seriously.
Evelyn is one bad-ass, fearless hunter, and I wouldn't want to get in her way! When new recruit, Daniel Summers, moves into the house to train with Ev, he draws out feelings from her she's never had to deal with before. This is where I * squee * for Daniel, because he is so patient and understanding with Ev as she sorts out her feelings. With two very focused individuals, how long can they dance around their attraction for one another?
Now, you can't fight nasty, smelly demons, goblins, and trolls without some ultra-cool weapons! Ev's weapon of choice is the Divinity blade. Where can I get me one of those? There are also the tattoos, which play a significant role in the demon-fighting. All the hunters have tattoos decorated all over their bodies. It's pretty cool how they are used, if you ask me!
Divinity was such a fun and fast-paced read for me. I wanted the story to keep going and going. An urban fantasy, paranormal romance filled with action, gory details, and just the right amount of snark. Overall entertaining and enjoyable! *Complimentary copy gifted for honest review.
Meet Evelyn Brighton...a kick-ass demon hunter with a foul mouth and an attitude to back it up. She's determined to live her life her way and not let anyone else tell her what to feel or how to act.
Meet Daniel Summers. He's the new guy on the block in the LA branch of the Labriga Corporation's demon hunter group. He's assigned to shadow Evie's every move. She's his boss, his trainer, and a royal pain.
As the story unfolds through alternating points-of-view, Evie and Daniel are drawn to each other, even more so while fighting demons. Their tattoos and spells used on the job add to their attraction in ways neither could comprehend.
This urban fantasy story took me by surprise. The humor and emotion, added by not only the main characters but the secondary ones as well, told a page-turning story. There wasn't a moment where I thought I could put the book down and walk away. The intrigue of what was going to happen next always sat in my mind until the very end... And now I wish for a book 2, desperate to know what happens next with Evelyn and Daniel and the rest of the branch as they take on more demon clans.

The characters fit perfectly together and the story is creatively written and unique. Evelyn is a amazingly strong self assured women who takes no s*** off anybody but met her match when Daniel comes in the picture. Daniel loves spending time with Evelyn but hates the training she puts him through. Love their banter and competition with each other and their secret thoughts and glances. Love the tattoos they all are magical. Tons of action, training, mystical creatures and magic. I wish Evelyn and Daniel's feelings for each other and sex were more of a focus, it was barely touched on and alittle almost after thought but over all the story was unique and interesting. 3.50 to 4 stars
