Review by Amber I.
Charley Davidson—grim reaper extraordinaire, private investigator . . . meh—is practicing her profession under the influence, caffeine and copious amounts of it, due to an extreme desire to induce insomnia. Every time she closes her eyes, Reyes Farrow, the part-human, part-supermodel son of Satan, is there. Only thing is, he’s a tad peeved. She did bind for all eternity, so it’s hard blame him. But 13 days without a wink is bound to bring out the crazy in a girl. So, when a man hires her to find his wife, Charley accepts the job with one goal in mind: Put the man behind bars, and not the wet kind. She can sense the guilt waft off him and vows to find the woman’s body and prove he’s a murderer.
In the meantime, Reyes is back in prison and none too happy about it . . . so Charley thinks, until she is carjacked by the dark-haired rake, who swears the very man he went to prison for killing is not only alive, but close by. And he wants Charley to find him.
While a visit to her old friend Rocket sheds no light on Reyes’s situation, Charley finds out the man’s wife is still alive and time is running out. Finding her before she dies would be a miracle, but she has to try. Together with the help of a fashion-impaired receptionist named Cookie, Charley sets out to bring the bad guys to justice. She just hopes Reyes is not one of them. And that she’s not hallucinating from her self-induced bout with insomnia.
This book was amazing. I seriously could not put it down. I read it one sitting and stayed to 3am to finish it. Like I said I just could not put it down.
Charley is still amazingly funny. I seriously love her. She is my newest girl crush.lol She is just always sarcastic always making jokes and is pretty kick ass. Then there is that dark mysterious Reyes and well he just drop dead sexy, he is also pissed off as all hell in this book. Now that Reyes is bound everytime Charley falls asleep he is there and not happy at all. Which makes Charley try and not sleep. She is staying awake, trying to find a missing women, trying to find a man who is suppose to be dead and also making some new friends with a biker gang.
Charley also learns a lot more about herself. A nun comes and visits her with a surprising message. Oh and Cookie is also hilarious too. We can not leave her out. Her and Charleys banter is just as fun as her and Reyes getting it on. (okay maybe not as fun but its fun in its own way.lol) Charleys Dad also drops a bomb shell on her and I do not think this one is going to go over well at all. And yes her life is also in danger.
I love this series. If you haven't yet then please start with book one and read them. And if you have read the others then you are going to want to read this one ASAP! The ending leaves us needing to know what is going to happen next. There are a few twists, some sexy scenes, laugh out loud moments, jaw dropping moments, action, mystery, suspense, heart ache and surprises. Darynda Jones really knows how to hook her readers in and you won't be able to stop once you start this book!!
