Ellie Locke has to stay alive to save her sister, but when she gets targeted by a couple of testosterone-laden assassins, avoiding death by joining a top-secret organization seems like a good idea…until she realizes that it isn't. Too bad there's no turning back.
If Ellie Locke dies, so does her sister, so when Ellie is murdered by a water god, it's a no-brainer to cheat death by accepting a deal from a stranger with the power to freeze time…until she discovers he has just set her up as a target for sociopathic serial killer with excellent magical skills.
Her only chance to survive her new job as an agent in a magical crime-fighting organization is her partner, a deliciously sexy half-demon who needs to stay alive as badly as she does. Neither of them has the magical ability to defeat a sociopath who has already killed seventy-six of their predecessors, but who needs skills when you have incentive?
Smoke, shadows, a hostile demon dad from the beyond, and highly paid assassins sent by her loving parents make things a little complicated for Ellie and her new partner, but what's a pair of breasts and an intimate moment for, if not to save themselves and the world?
And that’s just the start.
About the Author: S.A. Bayne (aka Stephanie Rowe) is a gift to the universe, at least according to her dogs, and everyone knows dogs are world-class judges of people. She was taught to play by the rules, but after suffering numerous apoplectic breakdowns, she realized that she had to ditch the rules, figure out her own way to live, and then turn that into a high-octane, irreverent, unpredictable-as-hell, paranormal that will make your day so much better just by reading it. And yes, she is also New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Rowe, winner of the 2018 RITA® Award for Best Paranormal Romance. Because she's nifty like that.

The Demon You Trust is amazing!!
Wow this book by S.A. Bayne Is incredible! My attention was captured within the first paragraph and I needed to know what happened next until I finished the book! I cannot wait to read the next book in this series! The romance between the main
characters is hinted at until you get to the super secret bonus scenes when the romance really starts to heat up. You will not be disappointed in reading this book! I absolutely love how S.A. Bayne uses two non-magic hero’s and the main chars fighting magical beings and they win. I loved reading this book!
Loved the Bonus Material!
Loved this story! Such an original idea with hilarious moments. I enjoyed how each character was struggling with an issue in their life, but they pulled together to make an awesome team. The bonus material at the end of the book was awesome and showed some interesting things! Cannot wait for more in this series!
Action from the word go! I am so excited to see what happens next. Circumstances have had me on a recent reading dry spell and I’m so glad that this is the book I’ve ended it with. There were no long, drawn out filler passages (thank you so much for that S.A.) so I was able to stay fully immersed in the story. Loved Ellie and Jack and can’t wait to see what adventures are coming up!
