Why was it in my TBR? Because I found it when my dad moved.
Hell on Earth, Book 1
Jezebel’s not your average exotic dancer. For one thing, she’s a 4,000-year-old succubus. For another, she’s on the run from Hell (which isn’t easy to do in high heels). Hiding on the mortal coil as a human doesn’t protect her from muggers, lactose intolerance…or having feelings for Paul Hamilton, a man haunted by his past. Demons are closing in, which is enough to make Jezebel shiver in her G-string. But it’s her love for Paul that’s going to have deadly consequences. (Humans, she laments, really should come with instruction manuals.)
Oh. My. God. I am at loss in how to describe Hell’s Belles. Not because it is was awful. Oh no. It was soo GOOD. The best analogy is that it’s like dark choclate. Bitter, spicy, sensual. All rolled in one. Hell’s Belles is all that. It’s about betrayal, survival, love. All in one. The story starts with Jesse escaping Hell. From that point, the story takes you on a rollercoaster ride. Both through Jesse’s struggle to adapt to life as a Mortal, but also through loops to her life in Hell. The story is told in a candid way, sprinkled with humor and wit. Jesse’s past keeps on interferring her life as a human.
One detail that gave Jesse extra depth, was the mixture of cynic and naivety.
All in all, Hell’s Belles were a sensual and witty tale. Now, if you excuse me I need to get the next one!
