Once I was an angel, which I loved. Now I’m a demon, which I hate. And might I add that my fall was totally not my fault despite what those heavenly douchebags believe. Anyway, I’m stuck with this gig, working for one of the head demons of Hell. And to be frank, I’m rather good at tempting souls and avoiding the boss man. That is until Camuel, my former angelic partner, arrives on the scene. All I want is to tempt my mark to the dark side, and then enjoy a nice glass of wine and a good book. Unfortunately, tall, blond, and feathery has other things in mind.

After radio silence for a couple thousand years, BAM, there she is, my old partner Mara. I thought I was over the anger of her joining Lucifer’s entourage, but clearly, I’m not. And damned if she isn’t smack dab in the middle of trouble, messing with the soul I’ve been assigned to save. Things are about to get ugly, because there’s no way I’m letting my client be swayed by a minion of Hell. And no doubt I’ll do something stupid like try to save Mara’s soul. I just hope I can do it without losing my own.

Hellbound in Vegas is a spinoff of Brux’s series A Grim Reality, which if you haven’t read, is a funny series. Mara, a fallen angel starts working her next mark, Nelson, when low and behold who shows up, Cam, her former partner. Cam is an angel, who up until now has just supervised things in Vegas but now he has been given his first soul to save, Nelson. Cam and Mara haven’t seen in each other in thousands of years and there are definitely some things that need to be resolved.

Another good series by Brux, but not if you are expecting it to be like her Grim Reality series it’s not quite the same but still a good read nonetheless. I look forward to seeing where book 2 goes.
