Story Overview:
A Bad Day For A Demon
Rafe Deleon is a senior demon and he resents like hell his assignment to Earth to retrieve the Chest of the Damned before it falls into the wrong hands. But then he meets beautiful, intriguing succubus Lucy Gregory, and she's just unleashed a whole load of trouble...
Really Sucks For A Succubus
Lucy's chic suburban beauty salon has suddenly become the Underworld's center of mass chaos and destruction. The only good thing in a day going rapidly down the tubes is the arrival of a gorgeous demon who's adamant that he can help her...
But Lucy has quite a few deeply unpleasant-not to mention deadly and hateful-surprises ahead of her, and surely there's never been a worse time to try out a new boyfriend...

My Review:
You have to love a book with a sense of humor and this book definitely has that. Lucy owns her own beauty parlor and thinks that she's just a normal girl...albeit one who hasn't gotten laid in over 5 years. So you can imagine her surprise when a sexy demon shows up telling her that she's a succubus demon (sex demon.)

There is a wild cast of characters in this book from flaming hairdressers to chimpanzee familiars. A host of Lucy's family members show up which she obviously knows nothing about. Suddenly everything that she has known in her world has gone whack and she has to change her perceptions about everything.

Rafe has been fully aware of his place in the world, but after falling into Lucy's crazy world, his perceptions need to be re-adjusted too. He's feeling things that he's never felt before and is not too comfortable with that fact. 

There is a ton of action. A ton of suspense. A boatload of twists and turns. At the top of it all is a wonderful sense of humor. 

It's a fun book, but unfortunately, it didn't engage me quite as much as I hoped for it. I honestly think that was because of my mood when I read it, rather than anything lacking in the book. Overall, an entertaining read.
