I loved the first book in this series and was excited to get back into Jessie's world. Jessie works at a paranormal agency with her mom. They have a fun sort of Gilmore Girls partnership but with demons and mayhem. Jessie has been able to spend more time with her demon dad since he was freed. Except now Jessie is locked into a 55 year contract serving the demon, Valefar. She also has her new boyfriend that was trapped in a box with Wrath for over 100 years. Danger is never far from Jessie and she accidentally releases a new baddie demon that must be recaptured.
I just love every character and relationship dynamic in the book! Jessie and her mom are such a fun team. I usually get bored with parents in books but I do find Klaire to be a badass mom and I love the way they work together. Jessie's sarcasm is awesome. I love Jessie's protective demon father, Damien. I even love how Lukas has become a part of their family. I am especially enjoying Valefar. He makes an interesting demon boss. Really wondering why he is so interested in Jessie and wanting her to serve him. Demons love being owed favors but I think there is more going on with Jessie and the Shadow Realm. Either way I can't wait to see more of him.
I love Lukas and the chemistry between him and Jessie. Some super sweet and hot makeout scenes. I love how he is always trying to protect her although Jessie really doesn't need any protection but I do think she needs a partner in crime. I love how her best friend Kendra has been stepping up with her witch skills and wants to be Jessie's witch partner too. Lots of love for this book. I do wonder what Lukas is hiding. Jessie's dad is sort of helping Lukas learn the ways of the demon world and I think Damien and Lukas have some secrets and I wish more had been revealed! Now I have to wait for the next book!
"I hardly think your father's idea of guard duty entails the inappropriate placement of my hands and lips."
"That kiss in the park..."
"That was hardly just a kiss," he said gaze hungrily zeroing in on my lips. "It was me losing control."
"Yeah, but that's the kind of slip in control I could get behind.
"Protecting you isn't my jog It's my life. You're not an assignment, Jessie. You make me crazy, but at the same time, keep me anchored. You're my reason."
"Reason for what?"
