Best read in order: no, each works as a stand alone
I love this series! I love the thought that Lucifer is playing matchmaker to add numbers to his army. I love the couples that Eve creates. I love the situations that she puts them in to put them together. I enjoy the quirkiness that makes what would seem like a dark book into a humorous read.
Katie is krazy. She not only loves her job as executioner, a job that she excels at, she lives for it. It helps her with her anger issues, which she has plenty of. Katie is not just a little off, she is way out there. Meds to treat psychosis were developed with her in mind. She is also the polar opposite of Xaphan, and the woman that landed him in Hell to begin with.
Xaphan is a touch grouchy. He is used to working alone on the mortal plane. Lucifer has decided to give him a partner for his current job, to add insult to injury Lucifer has sent him on a job to find a missing pet. The perky barely dressed blonde starts off as an annoying chatterbox, she turns into a temptress that he cannot keep his mind off of. The things that she makes him want to do to her forces him to question his loyalty to a vow he made three hundred years ago to another.
Xaphan shows Katie something she has never experienced before, descent man. Katie believes all men are selfish pigs. Xaphan is different from everything she has ever known about males. Katie makes Xaphan think and feel things he didn’t know he was capable of. She also tries his patience and makes his question his own sanity. All in all this makes for a fantastically great book.
I can easily visualize Lucifer in a fancy suit kicked back in his office, mischievous gleam in his eyes, rubbing his hands together, head thrown back and laughing at his skills when it comes to pairing his employees.
My only complaint is that the guy on the cover is wearing entirely too much clothing.
Katie to Xaphan, “Til death do us part?”
Xaphan to Katie, “Fuck that. I’ll follow you in whatever afterlife there is for demons and psychos.”
