The past is Darker than they thought…
Between helping her mother with the Darker Agency and laying the smack down on monster baddies, Jessie Darker puts the “normal” in paranormal. But lately, things have gotten a little crazy…even for a smart-assed half-demon teenage girl.
For starters, Jessie’s been contracted into fifty-five years of annoying servitude. To a demon. Then there’s Lukas Scott, her sexy new boyfriend. Once the former incarnation of Wrath, he’s been going through some…uh, changes. Like residual anger. And trading chaste hangouts for lusty make-out sessions.
But it’s when Lukas and Jessie accidentally release a Very Nasty Demon that things get really bad, setting into motion a chain of death and mayhem that threatens both Earth and the Shadow Realm. Jessie has exactly four days to fix it…before all of Hell breaks loose.
This was a fun read. I did not read the first book but didn’t feel like missing something. All-important background from the first book were also covered in this one, which helped a lot.
I enjoyed the setting and characters. Everything was well balanced and well written.
I really enjoyed Jessie and her quick witty way of thinking even if she had her moments. Lucas with all he had going on was also a great character, as well as all the side characters.
It was a great mixture of supernatural, humor, action and romance. It was a fast paced fun read and I can’t wait to see how the overall story continues and I might even pick up the first book to see how it all started.
Overall it was a great 4★ read.
