The bestselling series which proves there's no rest for the wicked continues....

All things truly wicked start from innocence.—Ernest Hemingway

Being a demon isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Especially when you make a massive mistake your first month on the job.

Even more so when your sister is one of the all-star players on the other team.

Add in the rumors of not one but two coups and it’s not hard to see—something wicked this way comes….

Southern belle Julie is a newly created succubus. Having traded her eternal soul for a life of passion and glamour, Julie is still learning to navigate the complex dynamics of her new reality. In this second installment, Julie is given a covert assignment to uncover details of a brewing coup among the ranks of incubi and succubi. As a succubus turned spy, Julie is continually forced to compromise her relationships and very existence to deliver intel to Abby, hell’s second in command. Amidst her attempts to please her boss, Julie is also desperately trying to forge a unique identity for herself. As the sister of a heavenly heavy hitter, and the lover of a hellish heavyweight, Julie struggles for autonomy and self-preservation.

I am loving this series. I like Julie as the main character, an anti-hero of sorts. Julie isn’t perfect, not even close, and I like that. I get to lose myself in a character who makes the bad choices and the fallout is oh so entertaining. Julie’s southern charm and manners contrast humorously with her wild sexual abandon. She becomes something of a walking contradiction, but instead of inciting frustration, her follies create intrigue. Because Julie is such a wild card, I really have no clue where all this is leading and I find that refreshing.

This book is full of sex. Like, full. And it’s descriptive. And, at times, unconventional. Surprisingly, though, it works and, for the most part, an integral part of the story. So, if liberal sex isn’t your thing, steer clear.

Book one ends in a cliff-hanger, a technique I don’t care for. With this installment, while there are some major question marks, the transition to book three, Ruin, has been more interestingly set. I can’t wait.
