Feisty witch Maggie enjoys her work as a paranormal law enforcement officer—that is, until she’s assigned to protect a teenager with major attitude and a sleazy boyfriend. A group of satanic Mayan priests has decided Courtney has a drop of divine blood in her—making her just the virgin sacrifice they need to release their God and rule the world.
To prevent this catastrophe, Maggie must team up with half fire demon Declan, the proprietor of Damnation Alley, an underground club and busy demon portal. Declan will be damned if he’ll allow his demon race to be blamed for the malicious acts of some evil Mayans. So he decides to seduce the sexy witch in an effort to discover what the law enforcement agency knows about the Mayan’s plans, but then things get more than a little hot, and Declan finds himself seriously entangled with the sexiest woman he’s ever met…
Not sure where I picked this book up, but it looks fairly new, maybe barns and nobles…or thrift books… anyway, I knew going into this book that it wasn’t going to be a gripping adventure or anything serious, even for a fantasy read.
This was purely for fun and it was truly silly at times with some out of the box thinking for the characters and the underground world they live in alongside the human society in the present day.
Honestly there are some steamy moments and that’s why I picked it up, and even with the story being far-fetched and silly at times, it was still a good read. Indulge a little, read it. While it does say it is the fifth book it is a stand alone novel in the series, so don’t worry if you haven’t yet read books 1 -4 of the HEX series, I didn’t.
