Manga Review: Demon Love Spell, Vol. 2 [Paperback]

I've finished reading "Demon Love Spell Vol. 2" by Mayu Shinjo.

Product Description

A supernatural romance by the creator of Ai Ore! and Sensual Phrase
Miko is a shrine maiden who has never had much success at seeing or banishing spirits. Then she meets Kagura, a sexy demon who feeds off women’s feelings of passion and love. Kagura’s insatiable appetite has left many girls at school brokenhearted, so Miko casts a spell to seal his powers. Surprisingly the spell works — sort of — but now Kagura is after her!

Shrine maiden Miko has sealed the powers of the sexy incubus Kagura, who has vowed to protect her. But now a fox spirit has transformed himself into a human to proclaim his love to Miko, making Kagura jealous. Miko relents and allows Kagura to enter her dreams again, but now he can no longer regain his incubus powers?

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen plus audiences.

My Review:

The first story has a fox spirit transforming to a human who mistakes Miko for the shrine girl he loves and wants to help keep smiling.  This one ends with a sad and tragic ending.

The next two stories deals with Miko and Kagura planning a lovey-dovey day where he can do anything to her without her protesting.

The heroine is a pushover who lets the hero kind of force her in doing things she doesn't want to do.  Kagura at times can be quite an alpha male (jerk) and this story almost went towards rape.
