My Rating: 3.5/5
Being Lucifer’s daughter can be hell.
Hi, I’m Muriel, the only white sheep in a sea of black ones, and a virgin to boot. I am determined to wait for love, but my dad, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. I’m hoping the hunk that I met in my bar will turn out to be the one–just looking at him makes my insides melt like marshmallows over the coals of hell, but trusting is hard when it seems everyone I get close to ends up trying to kill me.
Not only am I dealing with an extreme case of lust, there’s a new threat in hell, one my dad says to ignore. Something easier said than done since it seems everywhere I turn demons are trying to kill me. But I’m okay with that, because one thing I’ve learned being a princess of hell is that sometimes I have to grab a demon by the horns and slap it around a bit.
A rebellion in hell, demon assassins and scorching kisses, could my life get any more interesting?
This is a very fun read. It is on the short side, but that doesn’t hurt it at all, except that you’ll want more. I’m going to try and tell you what I liked without any spoilers.
Muriel is the vivacious, defiant daughter of Satan and that is a source of never ending embarrassment to him. I thought Muriel was a tough, confident woman. Yet she had her vulnerabilities. She is a virgin and will remain that way until she finds love and this sets up many hilarious scenes between her and her father.
Satan/Daddy is not what you’d expect from the ultimate evil. He’s just a dad that loves his daughter (even though he’d never admit it). Satan has to deal with the fact that Muriel is his “good” daughter and he has reputation to maintain.
Auric turns out to be all Muriel is looking for and everything her daddy didn’t want. The question of whom and what he really is was something I couldn’t figure out, but when he enters the bar things really heat up. The sex is intense, well written, and abundant in a short story.
I got to know and like the characters very well and am looking forward to continuing with the series.
