His life has gone to hell. Now his heart is about to go to the dogs.
Beelzebub has the perfect job: manager-in-chief of Hell…until the number of condemned souls nosedives, and God slaps an “Out of Business” sign on the Fiery Gates. Now Beelzebub is just a laid-off demon banished to live out a mortal life in his idea of perdition: Los Angeles. Complete with nosy neighbors and a yappy, pint-sized dog that won’t stay off his lawn.
Jillian Torres is finally free of one hellish relationship and has no interest in going down that road again. So what if her best friend reports that their new neighbor is super-smoking-hot? Jillian’s hands are too full running a Chihuahua rescue to notice or care…until Rufus, one of her escape-artist rescue dogs, makes a beeline for the man’s yard.
Three things hit her immediately when she meets Benjamin Blake. He’s definitely super-hot. His grumpy attitude doesn’t quite hide the sadness in his smoky hazel eyes. And Rufus adores him. Thus begins Jillian’s subversive quest to win Ben’s heart — for Rufus. But along the way, Ben and Jillian find everything they never thought they wanted.
Note: This third book in The Devil You Know series is a standalone romance with no cliffhanger. Contains a fresh-off-the-River-Styx-boat demon, a rescue-minded woman, a single-minded Chihuahua, a crime anyone with a soul would commit, and puppies.
I’ve read a few books by Christine Pope, and I’ve really enjoyed them, so when the opportunity to read A Wing And A Prayer, I jumped at the chance. I’m glad I did! This is the third book in The Devil You Know series, but works great as a standalone. I didn’t feel like I missed anything.
Let’s just get this out of the way… Rufus is my favorite character. Yes, the chihuahua is my favorite. Why? Because he makes the book quirky and unique. The rest of the cast is great too. I always admire Christine Pope’s characters.
This plot was fun. It was a paranormal romance, but it had some quirky humor too. I throughly enjoy when a novel doesn’t get too serious and has moments of fun.
Overall, I thought this was a fun read. I’d love to read the other two books in the series. I recommend checking it out!
