Base Instincts by Larissa Ione Blog Tour Review

Hi, everyone! I'm so excited to be on the Base Instincts blog tour. Raze and Slake's story was a labor of love for me, and while theirs isn't the first m/m story I've written, it's a first for the Demonica/Lords of Deliverance series. If you're curious about how it all started, be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win the first two books set in the Demonica/LOD universe, and for more information, head on over to!


As a Seminus demon, Raze’s life literally depends on having sex with females. The problem is that he doesn’t desire females, and it’s physically impossible for him to be with males. Thankfully, he and his best friend, Fayle, have an arrangement that keeps him alive . . . if lonely. He finds some solace in his work as a medic at Thirst, a vampire club known for its rough clientele. But his carefully structured world turns upside down when he meets a mysterious male who makes him want what he can never have.

Slake is an assassin used to getting what he wants, and what he wants is Raze. But he also wants to earn back the soul he sold when he was a much different demon. All he has to do is capture a runaway succubus named Fayle and hand her over to her family. What he doesn’t count on is being caught himself by a web of lies—and his attraction to Raze.

Raze and Slake must navigate a dangerous world to be together. But as Fayle’s jealousy of their relationship turns deadly, they find themselves embroiled in a battle not only for their love, but their lives and souls.

Base Instincts (Demonica, #11.7)

This author has done a good job of creating an elaborate fantasy world filled with unique creatures.

Base Instincts is a fairly quick read about two demon males who are different species. Both have natural advantages and disadvantages. The distinctions which make them what they are actually make them a perfect fit for each other. Of course the universe can't just let their happiness come easily. They have to face some hardships.

I plan to check out more from this author in the future. If you're looking for undeniable attraction, hot gay demon sex and otherworldly adventure, this may be just the book for you.
