Story Overview:
The devil went down to Georgia . . .
Nicki Styx has always known that the devil's in the details—but does he have to move in next door, too? Worse, he won't take no for an answer. Nicki would never leave her beloved boyfriend, ER doc Joe Bascombe, but hell hath no fury like a devil scorned. He's determined to make Nicki's life a living hell—even if it means exposing Nicki as an unwilling ghoulfriend to the dead.
Now, just when she was getting used to being able to see and hear—and help—spirits, Nicki's got a whole new set of problems. With ghosts descending from all sides, the bereaved knocking down her door, and Joe trying to take things to the next level, Nicki may finally be in over her head. It would be so easy to dance with the devil . . . but if Nicki crosses over to the dark side, she may never leave.

My Review:
Sammy! Finally, the book that I have been waiting for in this series- the one where he plays a major role. Sammy is the Devil and he's obsessed with Nicki. Devil Without a Cause is a book by Terri Garey that came out after this series that I loved. It is not part of this series, but it features Sammy and he mentions Nicki several times and is the entire reason why I picked this series up. As a result, I knew going into this series that Sammy was going to fall for Nicki. Yes, he's the Devil and he does not take "No" for an answer very well. But there is the unmistakable allure of this guy that makes it hard for Nicki (and the reader) to resist him. Luckily, Joe has his own erotic allure.

This book is so good! I love how Joe reacts throughout this book. Can you just imagine if you knew the Devil was after your girlfriend?!? OMG, his hands are completely tied (you can't tick off the Devil without life becoming truly hell) but he is so level-headed about it all and so good and trusting with Nicki...even after she admits to being drawn to Sammy. It really shows the level that their relationship has gone to. I just have to say it again...I really love these two together. I still absolutely LOVE Sammy, but Joe & Nicki are so perfect together. Joe is completely at his limit for his temper, but he keeps his cool and manages to keep his girl too!

And of course, there is the normal cadre of ghosts and spirits around that need Nicki's help which always keep things exciting and fun...especially when "possession" becomes the norm, which leaves Joe in an even lousier situation than normal. LOTS going on here. This is simply a really entertaining series to read.
