I will rate all 4 books separately- but first my overall review of the series:

I guess the best way to describe this is Urban Fantasy/ Paranormal Romance meets reverse harem… at least by the end of the series. The basic plot is interesting – Muriel is the daughter of Lucifer and her mother is an unknown. Throughout the series her magic develops and we watch as she helps her father protect Hell from those who are trying to take his throne.

There’s some humor – things like “Uncle God” – and Hell isn’t as bad as they’d like us to think. Lucifer has a sweet, soft side. There’s also loads of sex – too much in my opinion. I don’t want to give away the reasons, but sex finds it’s way into most conversations either directly or through innuendo. There were times where it was hot and other times it was overkill and I tuned out a bit.

The narration was fine – Rebecca Estrella was easy to listen to and did voices well. I would listen to her again, no problem.

It drives my dad nuts I'm such a goody-two-shoes, but the fact that I'm a virgin makes smoke pour from his ears. See, I'm determined to save myself for love, but daddy dear, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. Would it kill you to sin a little? Maybe he'll get his wish, because I met an intriguing hunk last night in my bar. Could he be the one? He certainly melts my panties like marshmallows over the coals of Hell, but do I dare trust him? My last boyfriend thought he'd gain infamy by killing me. He's infamous all right. Dad had him mounted on a wall, his version of modern art titled, "Touch my baby girl and die." My love life isn't the only thing I've got to worry about. There's someone threatening the denizens of Hell, and while my daddy says to not worry my pretty little head about it, I am involved because whoever is behind the attacks keeps coming after me. Bring it. I'm not afraid. Contains mature themes.

Quickie Review: This was actually my second time reading this one – but I’m glad for the refresher, the whole ending was very fuzzy in my memory. I think the action was compelling, the sex talk/romance less so.

Hi, I'm Muriel, misbegotten daughter of Satan, and once again, my life is in turmoil. The cowled one who tortured me left a curse on my mind, one that makes me afraid. Completely unacceptable, but in order to remove it, I have to do something even worse-betray my beloved by bringing another man into our bed. As if having to participate in a threesome isn't traumatizing enough, Hell has frozen over, and as much as I think Hades looks pretty in a blanket of white, the repercussions are severe. It's a good thing this princess of Hell has two lovers determined to charge my magic in pleasurable ways. I'll admit it's not easy having nympho magic, but I'm prepared to take on another man in my heart and bed for the sake of saving the world. Contains mature themes.

Quickie Review (spoilers from book 1): Knowing that Muriel’s power is fueled by sex just opened up the floodgates for sex and sex talk. And at times, I enjoyed that, at others it was overkill. The plot is interesting though, and I’m getting more into the humor… the whole premise is around the phrase “when Hell freezes over” which earned it a couple chuckles from me.

I am literally going to kill my mother. To say I have mommy issues is putting it mildly. The woman who abandoned me has a lot of nerve to just saunter back into my life without warning and drop a bombshell of atomic proportions. I tried to kill her as a way of resolving my inner Freudian issues, but my damned boyfriends stopped me. Spoilsports. As if wanting to strangle my birth mother isn't enough, once again, someone is messing with my life and a new player steps in to save me. Did I mention my dark knight is tall, gorgeous, and fanged? Just don't tell my lovers because apparently they're not willing to share me with the undead. The final showdown fast approaches. I don't care how powerful they are. They screwed up big time when they took something precious of mine. It's never a good idea to piss off this princess of Hell because revenge is my middle name. Thrust into the final showdown, thankfully, I've got more than my fallen angel and kitty at my side. Dark, Fanged, and Delicious is determined to join my group. I'm facing my biggest challenge yet, but don't worry, with the help of my family and lovers, Hell will have its revenge.

Quickie Review (spoilers from books 1-2): The addition of Muriel’s mom added some new interest and conflict for sure. There’s also a pregnancy that had potential, but for me was too quick and I didn’t love the way it was ultimately handled. And the sex talk got a little more corny/less sexy for me. If the series were a hill, we’re on the way down right now.

Juggling a happily ever after is harder than it looks, especially when it involves a fallen angel who is my soul mate, a hunky cat shifter who stole my heart, and a darkly delicious vampire who is like that piece of forbidden chocolate you just can't resist. Add in a precocious little girl, who is totally spoiled rotten-not surprising given Nana and Poppa were Mother Earth and the Devil-and my life was a never-ending series of dramas, foot stomping, yelling, and tears. By me. I never knew being a grown-up could be so much damned work, which is why I decided we needed a vacation. But of course, as Lucifer's daughter, that didn't turn out as expected. Now I've got to figure out if my bathtub is big enough for a hunky merman-and is there room in my heart for one more? Contains mature themes.

Quickie Review (spoilers from books 1-3): The start of this book had lots of promise for me. There’s a real family vibe going on and the complications of being mother to a powerful toddler (scary!). But it derailed for me as it went into the addition of another lover. There was some humor with the beach, but I think I just never really fully connected to the tone of this series.

Ultimately, I’m glad I finished it but I’m not eager to read more from this world or author – I just don’t think it fits me. If you like reverse harems in a paranormal setting I think you’d possibly like it. The tone/humor wasn’t right for me but I can see it appealing to others.

3 stars Just Okay

  1. I enjoy her books particularly her Welcome to Hell and her various shapeshifter series, but some more than others. I’ve been avoiding this one b/c of the reverse harem. Not my thing and especially with the part about it driving her power- read a different series that did that and it didn’t hold my interest either.
    Glad you finished the series and have that satisfaction along with a new narrator to follow.
