Kate O'Hara can't wait until this temp assignment is over. The woman who hired her is a psychotic pageant queen, her coworkers are convicts-turned-clerks, and it's so boringly corporate it makes her skin crawl. Even her sexy-as-sin boss, famed billionaire Thomas Kestrel, isn't enticement enough to keep her there. Once she makes enough to pay off her bills, she's out. Or so she thinks...


Next thing she knows, she's accidentally signed over her soul. Literally. And she's discovered Thomas's real mission: to kill thirteen bad guys in one year, in order to get his—now his and Kate’s—souls back.


From learning to boost the morale of some paper-pushing demons to navigating her way through blood-red tape, Kate has to work closely with her super-hot supervisor and get her flaky act together, before somebody clocks her out—p permanently!

When I finished this book deciding to give it five stars was the easiest decision I've made in days. I flew right through this book and it is one of those books that once you finish, you want to know happens next. But now. Immediately. Cathy Yardley is my kind of author. This book is hilarious, fast paced, it keeps you guessing, and leaves your mind racing with the possibilities for the next book.

Kate is down on her luck. And when I say down I mean way down. She was working for her uncle's small publishing firm that went under, so now she's unemployed and moving back in with her parents. Luckily she gets a temp job working for a huge corporation. Not so luckily things start off not so great and slowly get even worse. She has a bitch of a supervisor who has no idea what's really going on. She gets these crazy assignments simply to get put in her place. Not too mention there are about 50 demons in the basement doing paperwork. Things at Fiendish are not what they immediately seem. Throw in a charming, sexy CEO and Kate is in way over her head.

I can't get over how much I loved this book. There is so much humor with such a great story. I was thoroughly impressed. Kate is such a spaz, a well meaning spaz but a spaz nonetheless. I really like her as the unsuspecting leading lady. She's hilarious and the Sir-Mix-A-Lot scene made me 100% certain that I adored her. I'm a 90's girl at heart. All the characters in this book are awesome. I will never look at HoHo's the same way. This book just came out, beginning of a brand new series, and you have to read it. I promise you won't be disappointed. I flew through this book in one day. It's amazing and if you don't read it then you are definitely missing out.
