A Demon Made Me Do It (Demonblood 1) by Penelope King

Some girls share clothes, a bathroom, or a bedroom. Seventeen-year-old Liora Greyson has to share, too. Only she shares her body--with a demon.

Liora just wants to survive her final year of high school unscathed, her dark secret intact. But the walls she’s carefully constructed to keep people away crack wide open once she meets the sexy and mysterious Kieron, and he lights her world on fire. She can’t let him know she transforms into a demon named "Lucky" at nightfall—a demon with an entirely separate personality who passes out Torment, Justice, and Revenge like Halloween candy.

Turns out Kieron is the one who should be afraid once Lucky discovers his true identity and motivations. Liora wants to love him, but Lucky thinks he’s public enemy number one. And having a demon with a vendetta show up during a romantic date puts a serious crimp in any relationship.

Fighting your demons is one thing. Having one that fights back, messes with your guy, and leaves you with nasty hangovers is quite another.

Being bad has never been so good...

Reviewer: Fashionta
A Demon Made Me Do It is a darker paranormal than Witchy, Witchy but it has lighter moments too. Liora is a seventeen old human known in this world as Sapie. She’s a demion, a demi-demon who’s half human and half demon. Oh and she's been cursed by another demon race which has caused her two halves to be split and exist separately. So meet Lucky her demon half, who with Liora tell their story in alterative chapters as we explore the magical world the author has created.

I fell in love with this book. The author has talent for writing strong female characters and Liora and Lucky are like day and night literally. Liora exists until sunset and then Lucky comes out to play. They barely co-exist but that's all about to change when Liora meets Kieron. Kieron is another demi-demon but he moved to town for one reason. A reason that both Liora and Lucky aren’t going to like.

So the girls could be basically twins in one sense and it’s amazing how they act towards each because of the shared body. Even though this book is dark, it does have it's brightwe moments that balances the book out. I have to give this book four stars and say it's an interesting YA book.
