    Pure Dakota Style-- In other words, FABULOUS!

    My Review:
    Okay, it's no secret that I love Dakota's writing. She has such an incredible wit, snark, and sense of humor that comes through her writing in pretty much every single book. This one was no exception. This is book #2 in the Hell series. I haven't read #1, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment of this book at all.

    Marcella was a demon and reviled by pretty much everyone, except her bff, Delaney, because of that fact. As a result, Marcella has erected this huge facade of a personality that depicts her as shallow, snarky, and harsh, which keeps most people at an arm's distance from her. Which is fine with her. She has learned over her very long life as a demon (76 years) to not get attached to anyone because they are just going to die. BUT, she gave up her life to save her best friend Delaney and the love of D's life, Clyde (this happened in book #1) and now Marcella is existing in a plane of nothingness as a ghost. She's been trying to get out for 3 months so that she can get word to Delaney that everything is okay and that it's fine, Marcella is okay with this existence. She just wants Delaney to not worry and go on with her life.

    Kellan is Delaney's hot brother. Marcella has had the hots for him for 10 years, but he despises demons and has basically spit on Marcella her entire life. He has just inherited Delaney's skills as a medium so he's the only way that Marcella can contact Delaney. Through a twist of fate and some maneuverings by Delaney, Kellan & Marcella have agreed to work together to find a solution for her ghostly-being.

    This book had a FABULOUS character arc and growth for both of the main characters, Kellan & Marcella. Marcella has acted the shallow, b***hy part for so long that it surprises her when others start to get through that facade to what is actually underneath. This girl is tough with a capital "T"...she has been through so much and continues to get up swinging. I LOVED HER character!! She is just the kind of kick-a$$ chick that all of us would love to be able to channel under certain situations. She ALWAYS has a smart-a$$ comment and she doesn't let anyone else's snide comments to get to her.

    On the other hand is Kellan. *sigh* God, I loved him! He's normally a school teacher simply because he adores kids. He's had to give that up temporarily while he is trying to sort out the medium/ghost skills that he has suddenly inherited. He has never liked Marcella simply because she's a demon, but that hasn't kept him from lusting after her. I LOVED the fact that it was his original lusty daydreams about her that brought her forth from the expanse of nothingness where she was trapped. He is such a sensitive, caring guy in a really sexy shell. I loved how he realized his mistakes about judging Marcella slowly throughout the book. BUT he is used to butting heads with her, so he doesn't think twice about calling her on her sh**.

    This book was so good and fun! There were some fabulous twists in the plot that I loved...a bit of suspense, TONS of snark and wit, and some fabulously hot romance! LOVED IT! Another Dakota Cassidy winner!!!

    I Also Recommend:

    Might be my new fav Dakota Cassidy book!

    This is the follow up to Dakota's book, Kiss and Hell, the second in her Demonic Romance series. Fans of Dakota's books won't be disappointed! I think My Way to Hell is challenging Accidentally Demonic for my fav Dakota Cassidy book... And that's saying something!

    The Setting -- is New York. Actually, if you've read Kiss and Hell, Delany has moved out of her old haunt and her brother Kellen has moved in. But he's inherited more than just his sisters space!

    The Characters -- feature Kellen and Marcella from Kiss and Hell, both of whom played fairly important roles in the first book. There were plenty of teasers and indications of these two's real feelings for each other in that book to have fans on pins and needles wondering what was going to happen! Both characters are complex; it seems Dakota's characters are becoming more multi-faceted. Kellen comes into the book with all of his old prejudices which must be addressed before he can handle his new gifts and accept that Marcella might not be the demon he thought she was. Marcella, that sassy Latina demon who sacrificed herself for her best friend, has more layers than an onion! I'm not going to go into it - because I'd ruin it - but she steals your heart. Ages ago Marcella gave up herself for something very dear and important - a sacrifice that you might need a tissue to get through. Also in the book is another demon, Catalina; I'm dying to know what the deal is with her and Damael - and secretly hoping Dakota is locked away writing that story - cuz daaannnnnggggg! Oh! And Uriel is back; your favorite hang-ten angel.

    The Plot -- like the characters is complex. There's more at stake than just Marcella finding some way to get off of Chez Drab, not to mention establishing what she is now. There's Kellen figuring out his new medium abilities. And there's a kid in danger. Oh! And there's romance. I liked My Way to Hell because the characters both came into the story with very deep seated reservations about the other which were born out of dramatic personal experiences. I could believe their motivations in acting the way they did, but you could drive a semi through the void of space that is everything they don't really understand about the other. It's the story of two characters handling years of misconceptions and dark secrets and still finding it in themselves to love - and save the day.

    Yes, I will fully admit that there are aspects of Dakota's books you expect - but that's why you love her books. You pick up her book, it makes you laugh and believe in a good side to humanity and that big, magical if there were really.......

    amusing urban fantasy romance

    Raging Lucifer punishes demon Marcella Acosta for defying orders and saving the soul of her BFF (OF is more accurate as only friend) Delaney Markham (see Kiss and Hell). Her punishment is the loss of her demonic status and exile into some sort of purgatory between heaven and hell, but not earth as no malls or coffeehouses arein sight.

    As a ghost she fails to make contact with mortals until she decides to go after the human she most wanted as a demon, Delaney's brother Kellen. He has psychic issues that he feels are psycho as seemingly beings from beyond contact him; the most persistent being his sister's friend Marcella who he hid his attraction for her from everyone. As he realizes a child is in danger from a stalking demon and knows he must act, his nocturnal desires for Marcella brings her back to his side.

    This amusing urban fantasy romance brings together a lead pair that fans of the saga will appreciate especially after the Kiss and Hell escapades (and rejection). Fast-paced albeit a bit thin in plotting, fans will enjoy that Marcella is back burning tamales and peanut butter as only a retired sexagenarian former demon could when she becomes a not so average woman in love.

    rainy day read

    a love story with a twist. delaney not only sees dead people, she hears and talks to the dead. always fighting for the good of mankind, or saving her brother, she does it with feeliing and humor. ms cassidy has a way with the humor that is not to be missed. a chuckle will escape every time you think of this story. a light and fascinating read.
