Blurb

I work for Lucifer. Only, it’s not as cool and satanic as it sounds.

The truth is, I’m an admin assistant who applied for a job that sounded kind of interesting and ended up working for the Community of Species Government. I’m the only human in the office, and basically I ride herd on a team of rambunctious shifters and demons.

I also spend a lot of time avoiding Gideon Bailey, the demon I had a one-night stand with right before I took this job. He hates me, and I really want to avoid being murdered. But I’ve been offered a promotion that will mean working with him, so we’re both going to have to get over it.

Plus, people are going missing. Pregnant people. And the word is that someone is dabbling in genetic experimentation. Putting a stop to that is more important than the sexual tension Gideon and I have been ignoring… isn’t it?

Review

This was another mixed bag for me.

I really enjoyed the character development and the slow burn romance but it was too slow to be perfect. Literally years went by and I kinda didn’t buy in when it did develop for no good reason.

The main thrust of this story is really about Sam and his involvement in the newly discovered Paranormal world he’s thrust into. He does an amazing job and soon everyone loves him which then re opens the door to Gideon.

The final set of hurdles – with the missing pregnant people – is rather rushed and I think this was almost two books jammed together. The second half is just the romance whereas the first half is the world building and it feels like the first half got more attention.

All in all it’s an interesting paranormal book with a touch of romance if I’m being honest.

3.5 stars
