PRE-RELEASE REVIEW: 5 Star Review for Damned If You Do by Marie Sexton #MM #Paranormal @mariesexton

CoverTitle: Damned If You Do
Author Name & Publisher: Marie Sexton (Samhain Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: June 14, 2016 – 123 pgs


The path to temptation is paved with a hellish amount of paperwork.

Soul acquisition is a drag, but if Abaddon doesn’t catch up on his quota, he could be demoted to scooping poop for the Hounds of Hell. With a deadline hanging over him, he heads for the Bible Belt, looking for the perfect combination of sweetness and challenge.

Seth is a blind musician, part of a traveling tent revival. He’s cute, mystically talented, and quotes the Bible at every turn. His soul is pure enough to fill Abaddon’s quota for months to come, and Abaddon is determined to claim it.

The problem? There’s the revival foreman who watches Abaddon’s every move. Then there’s the mystery of Seth’s many unusual talents. Lastly, there’s Abaddon himself. He’s beginning to like Seth a bit too much. Maybe Seth deserves something better than damnation.

But Hell’s agenda isn’t negotiable, and time is running out. If Abaddon doesn’t play his cards right, he could condemn both of them to the worst fate of all—an eternity apart.

Warning: Contains a Bible-quoting twink and an irreverent devil who’ll do anything to avoid going “back to the office”. Also, snakes. Lots and lots of snakes.

WOW.. This story totally took me by surprise. I have to say I really didn’t expect it to hook me the way it did. Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down. There was so much I had to know!
I will say there were parts that made me scoff a bit.. like playing off the Charlie Daniels Band song, but in the end it was totally a cute and sweet story that I really enjoyed even though I really don’t care for sweet stories.
Both the characters were fun to read about and their stories were always keeping me racing through the pages to find out what was going to happen next because come on this blind kid nabs the attention of the worst devil and I just had to know what happened! Then there was Zeb… i had a feeling there was something up with that guy.
I will say I loved the talk of what it’s like in Hell, I found it quite amusing, just like every other part of the story.
