Synopsis from Goodreads:

The moment Lilith Straight dies, the Devil appears to claim her soul and cash in on a family curse. Now, Lilith has no choice but to work for him. The job is bad, the boss is worse and she can’t imagine how she’ll explain her new reincarnation to her eight-year-old daughter. But then an arrogant, yet oh so yummy, incubus shows up…and hell heats up just a little more.

My Review:

Scott’s laid back and approachable writing style draws you into this intriguing tale, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the world that she creates. She combines the spiritual with the supernatural to give her world a very unique and all-encompassing twist. Not only are you engaged creatively but also intellectually.

Scott goes about character development in a very subtle way. She doesn’t come right out and tell you about the individuals who live out this tale but rather gives you insights into who they really are by the way that they interact with and treat each other.

As a whole this was a unique, quick read that I quite enjoyed. This story definitely made me giggle a time or two, and also made me think about and question life in general.
