Lucifer in Sin City!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😚😌😉😍
The heroine: Hannah Thorn – a flower shop owner who lives with a friend Brandi and her friends small child. She came to Las Vegas looking for Brandi who disappeared a few days ago while staying at the Celestial hotel owned by Lucas Ifer. The police wouldn’t help her as soon as they heard where Brandi had been staying.
The Hero: Lucas Ifer (a.k.a. Lucifer) – He is a billionaire and king of Sin City and many call him the devil due to his reputation, not knowing that he is in fact Lucifer. He is known for making deals and being able to get you anything you wanted for a price.
The Story: Hannah goes to Lucas to ask for his help in finding her friend who was staying at one of his hotels. He agrees to help, but wants her in return. She agrees to stay with him in his penthouse for seven days. Hannah keeps getting the feeling she has met Lucas before. Lucifer immediately puts Zel (a.k.a. Azazel) on guard duty saying that ‘she’ had returned to him and is in danger.
The audiobook was told in dual points of view using dual narration where the male narrator does the narration on chapters in Lucifer’s point of view while the female narrator does the narration on the chapters told from Hannah’s point of view. The narration was done by Lia Langola and Will M. Watt who both did a good job. Will did the narration in a British accent which immediately made me think of the Lucifer from the TV series (which I love).
There were some things I really liked about this books and some things I didn’t. I always love a book about Lucifer on earth and in love. There was a pretty awesome shopping spree reminiscent of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, though this one was ruined by Hannah’s feelings about him buying her so much she didn’t need. I don’t know why a woman can’t just enjoy something like this, especially when the man has so much money it is just a drop in the bucket for him to spend some on her.
Then there was the big mystery of who Hannah was to Lucifer. Hints made it obvious that she was his one true love that somehow kept getting taken from him over and over. But it took quite a while for the whole story to come out. Personally I just wanted to know.
