Straight to Hell - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Straight to Hell (Lilith Straight #1)
by Michelle Scott


What is it about:
The moment Lilith Straight dies, the Devil appears to claim her soul and cash in on a family curse. Now, Lilith has no choice but to work for him. The job is bad, the boss is worse and she can’t imagine how she’ll explain her new reincarnation to her eight-year-old daughter. But then an arrogant, yet oh so yummy, incubus shows up…and hell heats up just a little more.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
This story is much more grim than I'd expected after reading the blurb.

Lilith is a nice and fun person, but the things thrown at her are not only dragging her down, they are also changing her, although she tries really hard to fight it. I was rooting for her to stand her ground and to find a way to turn her life around for the better, but time and time again things turned out wrong.

The tension between Lilith and the Incubus, William, is delicious to read I will say and brings a bit of light in an otherwise dark story.

What keeps this story from becoming depressing is Lilith's defiance and her strong will to not become what the Devil wants her to. It's this that kept me reading to see Lilith succeed and overcome her problems.

To know if Lilith will succeed in finding happiness I will have to read the next book in this series though, as this first book ends with lots of things still unresolved.

Why should you read it:
It's an intense and grim paranormal romance

Buy it from Amazon
