This was an entertaining and fun read about Ryan who is willing to literally sell his soul to save his sister's life. Zavier is the demon who shows up to make the deal. Shockingly Zavier realizes he knows Ryan and that he was once someone Zavier cared for a great deal. As the pieces of their history start to fall into place the two men realize they are running out of time to find a way to stay to together and to save Ryan's sister.
I thought this was well written and the charaters were engaging. I really enjoyed the world the author created and I was thorougly entertained with the idea that both Heaven (Corporate North)and Hell (Corporate South) are big businesses full of paper pushing and memos and meetings and bosses always wanting to talk to you about your productivity. I found the twist to the story one that I really enjoy and I thought it was both sweet and romantic. The pacing of the storytelling was good and the dialogue between the characters was well done.
This was my first time reading this author and I will definately read another work by them.
Climbing the corporate ladder can be hell….
As a collections demon, Zavier grants his “clients” one wish in exchange for their souls. His job sucks, but once you make a deal with Corporate South, they own you. The trouble is, Zavier’s not a very good collections demon, with his tendencies to spurn authority and find loopholes to help deserving clients out of their contracts. He’s under scrutiny from the head of his department, who would quite literally like to see him burn. He just needs to close a simple deal to get upper management off his back. Instead, he meets Ryan.
Ryan is desperately searching for a way to save his dying sister. He doesn’t believe in magic and demons, but he’s out of options. Zavier’s not what he expects in a demon, and even more unexpected is the strong sense of familiarity—very intimate familiarity.
While trying to free Ryan from his contract, Zavier discovers secrets unscrupulous even by South standards. Exposing them could cost Zavier everything, but it might be Ryan’s only hope.
