Fantasy Romance, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy
My entire life can be summed up in one sentence:
"Well, that didn't go as planned."
A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, errant wives, missing people, philandering business owners, and, oh yeah...demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part time Private Investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead.
Now, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, will Charley be able to defeat the ultimate evil and find a way to have her happily ever after after all?

While I've been a die hard fan since the First Grave on the Right, I wasn't in love with this installment of Charley Davidson. I get that Charley is a smart-ass grim reaper who is also a powerful goddess. I get that Reyes is her hotter-than-sin husband who happens to be the son of Satan as well as a powerful god. I get that their life is chaotic and they're always either fighting off a nemesis, tracking down a vengeful demon or protecting an innocent from the evils of the world. However, I've been on this ride for a long time, and I just want it to stop so I can get off.
Don't get me wrong. I love this crazy world that Darynda Jones has created, but this story made me feel like saying "been there, done that, got the t-shirt." It felt it was a rehash of everything that Charley's been through in the previous books. There were no "aha" moments and nothing that made me want to flip to the next page in anticipation. In a perfect book world, Charley and Reyes would finally settle into a sense of normalcy with their friends, family and most of all their daughter, Beep. I'm not sure how many books are left in this series, but I hope Ms. Jones is working towards giving her fans the ultimate HEA. Plus, I'm eager to see what else she can create with that wickedly talented brain of hers.
