Review: Tempting is Hell


Temping Is Hell (Necessary Evil #1)

Kate O'Hara can't wait until this temp assignment is over. The woman who hired her is a psychotic pageant queen, her coworkers are convicts-turned-clerks, and it's so boringly corporate it makes her skin crawl. Even her sexy-as-sin boss, famed billionaire Thomas Kestrel, isn't enticement enough to keep her there. Once she makes enough to pay off her bills, she's out. Or so she thinks...


Next thing she knows, she's accidentally signed over her soul. Literally. And she's discovered Thomas's real mission: to kill thirteen bad guys in one year, in order to get his—now his and Kate’s—souls back.


From learning to boost the morale of some paper-pushing demons to navigating her way through blood-red tape, Kate has to work closely with her super-hot supervisor and get her flaky act together, before somebody clocks her out—p permanently!

My Thoughts:

The blurb might not be very enticing and confusing but don't let that stop you from reading this book! This book was a roller coaster.This is the first adult novel I've read form Entangled Publishing that wasn't just a romance. It had a great paranormal storyline with demons,onmiyoji's (not sure if that's the correct spelling) and a hot headed female protagonist who's not afraid to do what is right at whatever the cost.

Both the main characters were sketched out very well and there was ample character development. The world that Cathy creates and introduces us to is fascinating. The best part about this book is that it's told from both the main character's perspective. You know exactly why Thomas is doing something as well as what is going on in Kate's mind.

Kate's interaction with the demons were hilarious (in my opinion) . It was so much fun to see the bafflement on everyone's faces whenever Kate was in the same room as the demons.

What makes this book different is the fact that it can be classified under various genres. It's funny,has paranormal elements, romance, revenge undertones,suspense and I it can be classified as a thriller as well.Even though there are a lot of different elements the book manages to keep you entertained and hooked.

I loved the main characters as well. They aren't forgettable and have a lot of spunk.

This book was a fun,paranormal,romantic suspense and I cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel! Why can't I find any information about book #2? 

My Rating:

Great fun!


  1. I love books which take you completely by surprise, so I'm glad that you had a lot of fun with this book! Great review! :)

  2. This sounds really funny. I love the idea. Usually the books I read about demons are serious so this one sounds like a breath of fresh air. And I love that the main characters are spunky!
