Book Blurb

The job started just like any job…

Find heir to billionaire fortune, check. Bust up demon brothel sanctioned by the head boss person, no-problemo. Pissing off a well-positioned member of the fae court is all in a night’s work, but finding love with the office temp who just might know more than he’s letting on? That was an issue.

But once Cy finds love in just the one particular wrong place, his easy-going lifestyle of kill or be killed has to change. Demon brothel or not, if he doesn’t find the missing heir, he’ll probably not see the end of the day, and that is finally starting to mean something other than just not getting paid. It helps that through Cy’s minuscule talents, no one can lie to him, but it’s not as though he has any home-court advantage when the consequences go from business to strictly personal.

Oh, and he also gets a sex demon…

 

Book Review

This is certainly one of the more mysterious and hard-to-figure-out books I have read in a while. With a main character who tells the story in first person, so there are no explanations forthcoming since he is familiar with all the rules of this world, it made understanding what was going on really difficult. Sort of like a mystery wrapped in an enigma, camouflaged as a riddle. But I was intrigued enough by the secret agent/supernatural assassin vibe to keep going. And I have to say, Cy grew on me, and his particular brand of humor and self-deprecation was certainly part of what I really liked.
 
So, here’s the thing. Cy isn’t quite human, and although he never clearly says what he is, he definitely has some fae blood in his veins. He has certain powers, like being able to tell when people lie to him, and probably some other abilities that haven’t emerged yet. He works for some sort of undisclosed company, albeit as an independent contractor, so he has some freedom around his assignments. Not much, as it turns out, but enough to enable him to maneuver when necessary. I really liked that he was trying to be a badass (and he is, don’t get me wrong), but he has a big heart, and helping the underdog, whoever that is at any given moment, is a big part of what he does.

The story itself goes from mysterious, as in what-the-heck-is-even-going-on, to action-packed within a few chapters. The task of finding the billionaire’s grandson quickly turns into busting up a demon brothel, keeping a lover alive, and freeing one of the demons Cy owes a personal debt to. The fights with his boss are epic, and the love for his cat made me smile. A great mix in an action-adventure, and by the end I was definitely ready for the sequel. Luckily, ‘The Care and Feeding of Sex Demons’ is already waiting in my TBR folder.

If you like larger-than-life main characters of the supernatural persuasion, if a somewhat quirky life-and-death quest for answers and missing people is your thing, and if you’re looking for a read that is as suspenseful and sometimes brutal as it is funny and hot, then you will probably like this novel.
