Hate your job? Try working in HELL!
Melody Angel takes a job as a temp at the HELL Corporation. Surrounded by eternal bureaucracy gone mad, demons who love making life miserable, and dying for a decent coffee, it may take a miracle for Mel’s mission to succeed. She must find out what evil plans the Lord of Lies has up his sleeve and stop him, using any means necessary. Lucifer and his minions are out to take over the world, but there’s more than money at stake when the Devil drives.
Adding trouble and temptation to Mel’s job is Luce Iblis, the damnably hot CEO, who has set his smouldering eyes on the new office angel and is determined to claim her, body and soul.
Can ultimate evil and angelic perfection escape a limbo of desire and find a paradise of their own?
~ Excerpt ~
“Great, we’ll see you in Hell at nine on Monday morning!”
How can an angel survive in a corporate Hell?
Mel accepted a job in the Health, Environment, Life and Lands Corporation – otherwise known as HELL.
Dying for a decent coffee, surrounded by bureaucracy gone mad and demons who just love making life difficult, Mel must find out what Lucifer and his minions are really up to – before his Corporation goes global. Mel’s no ordinary angel, but she’s never dealt with demons before.
Could the seductive CEO really be Lucifer himself? Are Luce’s lusty looks all they seem, or is he after more than Mel’s body? Does he have a hope in Hell with her, anyway?
He’s about to find out that this sweet angel’s soul is not for sale.
A tiny taste of what’s in store:
“Do you know how long you’ve made me wait?” Luce lifted his chin. “Close the door.”
Mel turned and kicked the door shut with the sole of one shoe. The click of it closing coincided with her eyes meeting Luce’s once more.
“Now strip and get your arse on the desk,” Luce instructed.
Mel stared at him. He couldn’t be serious, could he?
“Every other girl in this building knows how to do as she’s told. Do you know how many girls I’ve had on this desk? You should consider yourself lucky. The last one I had in here was so quick getting undressed that I managed to give her a full fifteen minutes of my time. At this rate, you’ll be lucky to have five.”
Mel became transfixed by the timber desktop. “Did you wipe it clean afterwards?”
“What?” Luce’s face reddened.
“Did you wipe it clean afterwards?” Mel repeated patiently. “I mean, you work on it every day. Imagine how many diseases and strange germs each of your, er, accommodating staff members were carrying when they placed their bare behinds on your desk.”
The shock on Luce’s face was priceless. He edged his chair away from the suddenly suspicious surface.
~ Review by Angela ~
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I love this book!! I enjoyed it immensely!! Melody Angel is a spitfire and doesn’t take crap from anybody, whether it is a fellow angel or the Lord of Hell Lucifer himself. She is a “different” angel in that she is nice to her demon co-workers and she genuinely cares about them and their feelings. She is a hard worker, no matter how ridiculous the job or task is, she takes it on with a good attitude and puts in 100% until it is done. I love how she handles Luce and his smarmy advances at work. He is a grade A jerk and she doesn’t let that get to her. She is the only one that can put him in his place.
I enjoyed reading this book so much. I laughed out loud at times and I really enjoyed the story. One of my all time favorite parts of the book is at the Christmas dinner. This happens:
“That was Lucifer. The infernal Lord of Hell. In perhaps the sexiest body I’ve ever seen him in. And you…you took his dick and wiped your wet patches with it. Are you trying to tempt him to taint you? He’s the most dangerous demon there is!”
I am not going to explain because you will just have to read it for yourself to find out what is going on. Let’s just say that it’s not what you think and you will be laughing when you read it. I can not wait to read more about the Hell corporation and Melody Angel. I really hope there is more to Mel’s story and that we get to see more of her. The ending is a surprise and I’m intrigued as to what the next book will entail. Mel is a delightful character and she needs more books. I give See You in Hell 5 books!!
