Archie is a demon who's so lazy, he's this close to being kicked out of hell. Chloe is a brand bimbo for a liquor distributor, dating bums and secretly crushing on her favorite bartender, Archie.
Archie only wants to comfort Chloe after her latest jerk dumps her. He doesn't plan to show her the demons' sweat-socky man lair, or confess to collecting thirty pieces of silver a month for seducing women, or describe the Ravenswood Project, a spell he cast on the neighborhood to make all the women easy pickings. He doesn't even intend to kiss her. It all starts with one well-meant lie...
"You've been selected for victim's compensation. Just for you, it's gonna start raining men."
Stevenson has a gift for showing you the heart of characters, and this book is no exception. Chloe is ready to move up and on, both in her work and her choice of men. The slacker demons have been playing around for too long, and whether they are ready for change or not, it's coming for them. Worse, all the demons have secrets, whether it's that they were gods in previous times, or are on the run from other gods.
Plenty of story, laughs, and tugs on the heart.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review Chloe is your typical young woman. She works a full-time job and she is single. She is also tall, with a great body, beautiful long black hair, and a lovely face. Unfortunately, she has extremely bad luck with men. They dump her after just one or two dates and this has been her pattern for over a year! Chloe has a secret crush on Archie and has wanted to date him for the 2 years that she’s been going to Cheaters where he works as a bartender. However, Archie has never demonstrated any interest other than listening to her problems from across the bar. Chloe has watched Archie leave the bar after work with other women, but never the same one twice. What does she have to do to get his attention? When Chloe comes in one night and starts crying because she has been dumped – again, Archie takes it upon himself to try to cheer her up by telling her that he and his roommates are demons and have put a curse on the area and it forbids any good men from entering. He then tells her that they will cast a spell that has good men raining down on her. Of course Chloe finds this approach charming and looks forward to seeing how it works…actually she doesn’t care, she just wants to get to know Archie better. What became of the women that Archie went out with? Why do they almost never come back into the bar? If they do return, they have a man on their arm and diamonds on their hands. Will Archie really be able to bring in good men? What of the other women in the area who seem to have trouble finding descent men? Will the spell help them too? This is an interesting story, with lots of surprises, and fascinating and imaginative situations. There is more bad language and graphic love scenes, than I am normally comfortable with and I do not feel that less bad language or fewer graphic situations would detract from the story. The story is told in the first person alternating from the perspective of Archie and Chloe.
