  • A bit silly

    This was a bit of a silly romcom with the son of the devil and an average human girl. They are on a bit of a wild journey trying to stop an underworld cult. It’s quirky and out there. Funny and strange. A unique read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Really fun read.

    {Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press/St. Martin’s Griffin for the gift of an eARC in exchange for an honest review.} Callie doesn’t know quite what she wants to do with her life. In the immediate future, she wants to successfully run the family’s escape room business while her mother is away for the weekend. This becomes more difficult when a satanic cult steals a grimoire from one of the rooms, kidnap Callie and her best friend, and semi-accidentally summon Luke, Lucifer’s son. Luke has his own problems, more particularly a fast-approaching deadline to collect souls in order to prove his worth to his father. ▪ This is a romance/fantasy hybrid. I love fantasy, so this was a pleasant surprise, but I imagine that for someone who expects a straightforward romance (the book is in the romance category only), the descriptions of demons and the landscape of Hell may be off-putting. I really enjoyed the mythology and rules Bond adopts for her demons and the satanic cult, they felt at one original and grounded in recognizable myth. ▪ Dan Brown-esque quest. Another pleasant surprise: a not insignificant part of the novel describes Callie and Luke going on the kind of adventure typically described in Dan Brown novels. It’s a lot of fun. ▪ Sweet romance with a bit of heat. It may sound weird to say that the romance between a human woman and the devil’s son feels real and believable, but it does. Both are well-drawn characters, and their attraction feels genuine. Callie in particular is such a great character, an ordinary person who shows so much bravery when confronted with such unusual circumstances. ▪ Queer representation. Callie’s best friend is non binary and this is handled without fuss, as it should. More of this in all kinds of books, please. ▪ Unfortunate mentions of that YA wizards writer, but handled in a satisfying way. The characters have discussions about which Hogwart’s house they belong to, which raised my hackles because of the author of these books being such a transphobe. The presence of that discussion is totally worth it though, but I will not spoil it here. Just a heads-up that it’s there. This was a really fun read. It went in a lot of unexpected directions that happened to align with the kind of non-romance books I enjoy reading, but I wonder if people who enjoy more down-to-earth romances would be put off. Then again, the clue is in the synopsis: this book stars Lucifer’s son as the romantic lead, so unusual events should be expected.

  • 3.5 Stars! Unique, comical, and cute!

    Not Your Average Hot Guy is a sweet, funny, action-packed romance that takes you into the life of Callie, a kindhearted bookworm who finds herself inadvertently attracted to and in need of help from the sexy Luke Morningstar, the prince of Hell himself, when a satanic cult, led by the devious Solomon Elerion, visits her family’s escape room business to steal a book of spells that can help them summon a powerful demon, potentially acquire the Holy Lance, and ultimately trigger the apocalypse they’ve always been hoping for. The writing is playful and light. The characters are feisty, impulsive, and amusing. And the plot is an adventure-filled tale of temptation, mystique, chemistry, attraction, witty banter, humorous mishaps, supernatural characters, and of course, a little fire and brimstone. Overall, Not Your Average Hot Guy is a charming, humorous, quirky tale by Bond, and even though I felt it might be a little more suitable for a YA or New Adult audience rather than the adult readers it’s geared towards, it is still nevertheless an easy, entertaining read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
