It drives my dad nuts I'm such a goody two shoes, but the fact that I'm a virgin makes smoke pour from his ears. Literally. See, I'm determined to save myself for love, but daddy dear, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. Maybe he'll get his wish because I met a hunk in my bar. We're talking serious sex on a stick--or so my sister Bambi likes to say.
Could he be the one?
He certainly melts my panties like marshmallows over the coals of Hell, but do I dare trust him? My last boyfriend thought he'd gain infamy by killing me. He's infamous all right. Dad had him mounted on the wall surrounding his palace, his version of modern art titled, 'Touch my baby girl and die'. Cute in a twisted way. But my love life isn't the only thing bothering me.
There's someone threatening the denizens of Hell, and while my daddy says to not worry my pretty little head about it, I can't help but get drawn into the fight because whoever is behind the attacks keeps coming after me. Bring it. I'm not afraid to protect myself because being a princess of Hell means that sometimes I have to grab a demon by the horns and slap it around a bit. It's what keeps my ass looking great.
Nothing in my life is ever simple, and I blame that on my dad, Lucifer. Assassination attempts, hellhounds, and a rebellion in Hell? A piece of cake compared to the turmoil in my heart. No one ever told me love would be the toughest battle of all.
Muriel is Satan's daughter but she's not as evil as one would expect her to be. She owns a bar called Nexus that is a safe haven for other supernatural beings and much to her father's dismay, she's still a virgin. Daddy dearest would like her to be more evil, commit a few more sins...something that he can be proud as much as Satan could be, but he loves her nonetheless.
Muriel is saving herself for the one, that one special person that she falls in love with. She doesn't think she's ever going to find this person because really, who in their right mind is going to want Satan as a father in law?
Auric has a secret and so do his 2 friends. But when they walk into Muriel's bar, she wants to get to know him better. At first this guy and his friends seem like stalkers, they're showing up in places Muriel is at. But things aren't always as they seem or as we expect them to be. In this book, Heaven isn't all that great, hell isn't all that bad, god and satan are brothers and not many people make it to heaven.
Things might be a little different from what we've come to expect but when they story is great, the characters have wonderful and sometimes funny interactions that's all that matters. If you'd like to read this one for yourself, you can find it here.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
