Seven Sins. Six innocent people. Five days. Piece of cake...
Jessie and her mom come from a long line of Darker's that take care of paranormal problems. Lukas Scott enters the agency with a big problem. The box full of the seven deadly sins has been opened and released him and six other sins. See wrath was connected to him permanently with a spell. The other six sins have stolen bodies that will die in five dies if they don't recuse them. The box will call them all back so time is of the essence. This was actually kind of confusing to wrap my mind around but Jessie asks lots of questions and eventually I understood the situation.
I loved Lukas as a love interest. He is a hundred or so years older than Jessie but he has been locked away in the box so when he comes out he is really only 18. I often find it creepy when guys that have been around for hundreds of years like teenagers lol but he is a real teenager. Except he isn't exactly caught up on all the new slang and technology. He adapts well but says some very humorous things. Even though he is in this very unfair position attached to a sin he is a good person does the right thing. He wants to be free but doesn't want anyone else to take his place.
Jessie is a snarky teenager that wants more jobs and responsibility in the Darker Agency. Her mom wants to protect her. Of course Jessie doesn't listen and goes after the sins. Her mom yells at her not too and then she goes after them again. This part kind of got annoying and repetitive. They only have five days and it sure didn't seem like her mom was making much progress so you would think she would just go ahead and work with Jessie.
Jessie and Lukas work together and sparks start to fly but it was a good slow build. Jessie feels an instant attraction but their friendship takes some time. They made a good team and find many of the sins who were rather comical. There were a few twists but most of the I did find predictable but it didn't affect my enjoyment. I am actually even more excited for the next book because this one ends with Jessie in a rather interesting job situation. I also loved that it ends with no cliffhanger. The plot and mystery of this one is all wrapped up but still open for the Darker Agency to get plenty of new and exciting cases. Can't wait to see what is next.
