Monster in My Closet is a breath of fresh air that isn't afraid to step outside the box. It has all the aspects of a book that I could ever hope for. Urban Fantasy, a dash of romance, paranormal creatures, and silly scenes. There was no doubt in my mind that this book is a must read just by reading the first line.
"Of all the possible weapons I might have grabbed, I choose a toilet brush."
The main character, Zoey, is an empath that always seems to draw in people that are in need. Upon confronting the intruder in her house she realizes it is the monster that terrified her once in her childhood. When hearing his relationship woes, she lets him crash at her house. It doesn't hurt that Maurice, the closet monster, can probably out cook gourmet chefs. It doesn't take long before the Hidden (paranormal creatures/beings) are actively seeking Zoey's assistance.
Zoey finds herself as the book goes on. She takes control of her power, and learns how to use it. She kind of has to since not all of the paranormal beings are nice and cuddly. There is a succubus that wants to get his emotional fix and Zoey is at the top of his list. She has to find a way to stop him before everyone around her dies.
Monster in My Closet was a great read that I recommend if you are looking for something light and unique.
