Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings—some corporeal, some not so much—as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up.

Add to that her new occupation of keeping a startup PI venture—the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford—out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes: Can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?

Review Copy Source: Netgalley

Things are seriously not good on this plane of existence. Charley is paying a serious price from the consequence on wanting to pacify some sort of celestial guilt of innocent souls trapped in hell plane designed for her hubby. Why she thought it was a great idea to sacrifice her love without thoroughly thinking things through and setting up million safety nets. No idea! I don’t think like Charley does… maybe I need more coffee. Anywho… now that s***— hit the fan, it is time to hit the ‘undo’ button. 

Except there is no such thing. With Reyes on the loose, among other things. Charley must solve cases and wrangle her gone-to-the-dark-side-hubby and deal with whatever else is thrown her way. Seriously the girl spreads herself way too thin sometimes.

This book was the most action-packed in the series in my opinion. I almost got an ulcer from worry. 

Now the ending… the ending I am going to leave for you to get to yourself. But once you finish I will be waiting for you with tissues and wine. No! Coffee can not solve this problem.
