Charley Davidson isn't your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She's more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth...but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason. When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma is the serial killer's next target, Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes's help. Arsonist or not, he's the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.
Charley Davidson is at it again in the sexy, suspenseful, and laugh-out-loud funny fifth installment of the New York Times best selling series.


Since this is the 5th book in the amazing series, I'm going to keep the review short since if you are reading this, you probably already read the other 4 (if you haven't.... DO IT! seriously... stop reading this review and go get the other books.... you can thank me later).

First of all, I absolutely adore how I can walk away from this series for as long as I did and be able to just seamlessly pick up where I left off (I know... it's crazy I was able to walk away... but funds were low and I had a seemingly infinite pile of unread books to tend to). The books give you just enough details to help you remember key events from the last books without making you go, "Oh my god! We get it!"

That being said, Charley and Reyes I'm pretty sure are my new favorite book couple!!! After this ending, I'm now trying to decide if I like "Chareyes" or "Rarley" better but all I can say, without giving too much away, is holy hot DAMN! I fangirled right out at the end and then immediately ordered the next book.

And this book delved more into Charley and her powers, but it really creates more questions than answers. You kind of feel for Charley as you are left with the same sense of frustration and all-consuming curiosity as she is, wondering what exactly she is and what she can do.

This book holds the same par as the others, while simultaneously launching things that will both make you salivate and freak out internally (or externally... what ever floats your boat). I'll say again, if you are reading this and have not been exposed to this brand of awesomeness rolled in paranormal romance and mystery.... get your butt to a bookstore or a website and get to it!
