Description: If you hang around with dead people, life can deliver a whole world of trouble. Take it from Charley Davidson, part-time P.I. and full-time Grim Reaper. The deceased find her very sparkly. Demons find her irresistible. And one entity in particular wants to seduce her in every way possible…When Charley and Cookie, her best friend slash receptionist, have to track down a missing woman, the case is not quite as open and shut as they anticipate. Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally.) has left his corporeal body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty.Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Can she keep those she loves out of harm’s way? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel her as she does?
I already said in my review of the first book how much I’m enjoying this sassy and strong heroine named Charlie Davidson aka grim reaper. Seriously, she’s kick ass and spunky and says the stupidest things sometimes and it cracks me up. I also love her friendship with her assistant/side-kick/BFF Cookie. And then there’s Reyes. He’s so… creepy-hot. He’s a bad-boy, but for realsies. I don’t know whether to swoon or to be terrified of him. So characters-wise, this book rocks it. Oh yea, and then there’s the rollercoaster plot and Charlie’s 14-billionth near-death experiences and then there’s the betrayals and the reconciliations and desperation and the new abilities and more. Like in book 1, Charlie has two major cases – one is for a client and one is more personal and something new to do with Reyes. I’m seeing a bit of a pattern that he’s going to keep causing trouble for her. I also am enjoying the sayings that start off each chapter. Ok time to start book 3, stat.
