For Zavier, touching Ryan unlocks the history of his human life--the one he sacrificed when he made a pact with a demon to save the life of his dying lover, Ryan. Fifty years have passed since Zavier's contract came due and he entered Hell's ranks, but how could his new client Ryan have opened Zavier's locked memories? Zavier begins to investigate his own contract, with the help of a guardian angel and a lesser demon with mad computer skillz. The answers are as infuriating as they are shocking, and Zavier is torn between his demon duty and his love once lost.
I thoroughly enjoyed this romance. Do not be looking for lots and lots of steamy sex--there is a bit of physicality near the end, but it's a small part of this bittersweet story. The story is told from Ryan and Zavier's points of view, so we really get to see their insights, throughout. The descriptions of Hell are interesting and compelling--I definitely enjoyed the "corporate structure" and how the demons and angels jetted about with a touch of a cell phone.
The star-crossed love between Ryan and Zavier is allowed to develop in a new realm--with Ryan being a more equal partner in love than the man Zavier sacrificed his mortality for all those decades ago. Still, things happen fast. Zavier's boss is frustrated by his slip-shod efforts at signing new souls, and collecting souls come due. I adored Zavier's sense of morality--he's the anti-demon, all conscience and no avarice. His best friend is an angel, for goodness sake!
As Zavier works to protect Ryan from his own selflessness, Zavier makes the same mistake he did when he was human--and his keen protectiveness nearly ruins the tenuous love they are building, now. The end is nothing short of a miracle, but what can one expect when the angels hear your prayers. I know there are more books in this series planned, and I'm eagerly expecting Adrian (the guardian angel)'s story. I want that guy to find love again.
"We've slammed right into desperate times, Ty...I'd call this desperate measures."
Ryan has to do the summoning himself, after all it was his soul on the line and faced with the hopelessness that had become Maggie's life, Ryan was desperate enough to try anything. Zavier is the demon/collector sent to do the deal. He is nothing like Ryan expected, but then Ryan wasn't what Zavier was expecting either. He didn't expect to be making an agreement on the soul of a man he had loved well before he became a demon - fifty years before. His mind wipe during his conversion process should have taken care of all of the memories he had of his human life. One handshake from Ryan changed all that.
This is a totally different type of demon book to one you might have been expecting. It deals with contracts, miss-filed contracts, internal reviews and investigations - as if Hell, although it isn't called that, is one giant corporation rather than the stuff of myths and legends. This is also an interesting take on reincarnation and how much of our previous lives we retain if we are reborn.
"I did not sign up to share my body with a ghost. This mind and body are a single room occupancy, no roommates allowed."
Underneath the whole story is a strong thread of love - the power of love and what it can do when two people are prepared to die for each other. This is the first book I have read by this author and I have to say it was totally captivating. I do hope there is more - Adrian totally deserves an HEA but...well hopefully that will be another book. But this book in itself is a total love story - hot, enduring and definitely headed for my favorites pile.
