Good, fun escapism :-),
This review is from: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Hot (Mass Market Paperback)
Becca Gibb is a Rivka, created by Satan to do his will on earth. Unlike the majority of the Rivka ranks, however, Becca is neither an adoring sycophant, nor intent on evil herself - in fact, her main activity comprises escape attempts from Satan's rule. This ongoing rebellion does, of course, make her Satan's favourite and most entertaining minion.
Meanwhile, meet Nick Rawlings. Descendent of the near-invincible Markku race, who famously escaped Satan's rule only to be killed in their sleep, he's just been given an ultimatum: kill Satan or your sister dies.
He needs help, and the obvious place to find it is with the Rivka rebel, Becca. From the moment they meet, there's a spark. He, passionate and she, as cool as ice, they are emotional opposites - and yet a deal is struck: Becca will help him save his sister, if he will help her escape Satan.
This is a fun, light read, with an enjoyably complex cast of characters and narratives. The romance comes a close second to the fast-moving plot (perhaps in part due to Nick's character, which suffers slightly in comparison to Becca's more interesting subtleties), but despite this there is convincing warmth between the pair that carry the story forward nicely. It's a bit like an episode of 'Charmed' - the lead characters' romance is well formed and enjoyable, but the cool demons and battles to rule the world are what really keep the action going.
Summary: good, fun escapism. Enjoy :-)
