What a fun little book! Here we meet Kenzie, a normal 16 year old girl with a small problem. She spilled her $50 zit cream in her shower and opened a demon portal! Out pops a demon named Levi (the demon of Envy) and her whole world is turned upside down.

Levi cons his way into moving in with Kenzie, enrolling in her school, and manages to weasle his way all the way up to the top of the social ladder at her school. Now its up to Kenzie to close off the portal before its too late.

Will Kenzie ever get her licence? will her crush Adam ever notice here? Will She ever learn that her life isnt so bad after all?

This was an awesome story about acceptance and appreciation. I cannot wait to read the next installment! I hope there will be many more to come.

Lotion meant for acne treatment is supposed to help remove those huge craters on your face, not open the portal to a whole other world. At least that's what Kenzie Sutcliffe thought -- that is, until she accidentally dropped the bottle into the bathtub, having more than half of it spill into the drain, resulting in a guy appearing out of nowhere.

Who cares if her mother is going to kill her for wasting all that lotion and all that money, there's a guy in her bathtub, and a demon at that. If only he was cute, than the situation wouldn't be so bad, but his jerk comments do not help, either.

It's bad enough that Kenzie has to focus on finally getting her drivers license, after so many tries, and to get Adam Birmingham, longtime crush and hottie, to ask her out. Those are now the least of her worries. The portal to the demon world is officially open in her bathtub and it's up to Kenzie to figure out how to close it and help Levi, the demon, from having to go back.

Life just couldn't get any worse... well, for Kenzie it can. It only takes one day for Levi to become popular, whereas Kenzie still goes unnoticed. And having Levi live with her isn't all that better, since her siblings do seem to like him more than they do her and he is using her bathroom. Let's just hope that Kenzie can remove herself from all of this jealousy, which is what Levi feeds off of, and can successfully close that portal before more demons enter her life.

Hilariously funny and absolutely unique, DEMON ENVY makes demons look better than vampires. Move over Buffy because Kenzie Sutcliffe is the new girl in town, but she just doesn't really know what to do... yet.

DEMON ENVY just screams `READ ME' and readers will want more of Kenzie and her whiny ways -- and Levi and his jerky but caring attitude. Erin Lynn definitely knows what readers want, and let's hope she knows that what this reader wants is a sequel!
