If you hang around with dead people, life can deliver a whole world of trouble.
Take it from Charley Davidson, part-time P.I. and full-time Grim Reaper. The deceased find her very sparkly. Demons find her irresistible. And one entity in particular wants to seduce her in every way possible . . .

When Charley and Cookie, her best friend slash receptionist, have to track down a missing woman, the case is not quite as open and shut as they anticipate. Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally.) has left his corporeal body because he's being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can't let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they'll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven...well, let's just say it wouldn't be pretty.
Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Can she keep those she loves out of harm's way? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel her as she does?

Would you ever imagine falling in love with the Son of Satan? Me neither, still! Reyes is a charming, strong and powerful character who keeps leaving you with questions over questions simply because even if he gives you an answer, then you can be sure you will wonder about what he said. That and, of course, the permanent I-know-you-are-not-telling-all-I-need-to-know halo around him . . . So mysterious, so unbelievable sexy . . .

To be completely honest, I like more than a character, surely not in the same way I like Reyes, but they’re great just like every cases and our fave PI/grim reaper. In my review for the first instalment I said Charley’s humour was her best characteristic, it was so refreshing that you find yourself totally addicted to it. Now that I read the second book, let me rephrase everything in the proper way: the humour is the main reason you fall in love with the series, and not laughing almost every page is practically impossible! I honestly think it’s unique, and a humour like that is a totally winning key.
