Publisher Description: Way down south in the land of cotton, one belle’s plans are soon forgotten–when Sassy Peterson drives her Maserati off the road to avoid a deer and lands smack-dab in the proverbial creek without a paddle. The Alabama heiress should have known something weird was going on when she saw the deer’s ginormous fangs. Hello, Predator Bambi! But nothing can prepare her for the leather-clad, muscle-bound, golden-eyed sex god who rescues her. Who wears leather in May? That’s just the first of many questions Sassy has when her savior reveals he’s a demon hunter named Grim. Also: Why would a troop of fairies want to give her magical powers and rainbow hair? Why would a style-challenged beast called the Howling Hag want to hunt her down? Most importantly, what’s a nice debutante like Sassy doing in a place like this anyway? Besides feeling Grim .
My Review: I really loved the writer’s voice in this book! Despite being the fourth book in the series, I had no problem following the storyline. This tale about Sassy (former debutante) and Grim (immortal demon slayer) is absolutely hilarious and the worldbuilding is fresh and well-detailed. Being a Mississippi girl myself, I found the references as well as the speech and personality of the characters to be highly credible. I was pleasantly surprised all around by this story. Grim is a stodgy, dark, solitary beefhunk who lives solely for the mission. Sassy is an effervescent and young daughter of a rich socialite family who happens to be very well off financially (thanks to the pickle and chicken tender empire!). I am sure it is easy to imagine, especially based on my description, why these two characters would form a union that goes over like a pregnant pole vaulter. There are some definite rough moments between the two, and despite the author piling trial upon trial on them, the couple manages to prevail. This was a delightful read that left me feeling pleasantly satisfied, and I recommend it for anyone looking for a laugh and some steamy romance with quirky characters.
