Audiobook Review: Sweeping Ashley (Grim Dating, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sweeping Ashley by Eve Langlais

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sometimes love is messy.

In exchange for some witchy powers, Ashley promised the Devil her firstborn, but when the time comes to pay her due, she has nothing to give.

With Lucifer insisting that she fulfill the terms of her contract, Ashley turns to Grim Dating for help. There’s only one problem—they’re having a hard time finding her perfect match.

Which is where Derrick comes in.

He’s the company’s problem solver; however, even he has no idea how to get a prim and proper witch to let loose. Frustration leads to him kissing her, but he never meant to seduce her.

…or fall in love.

However, his witch isn’t interested in more than a one-night stand. And when an angel gets involved, the reaper realizes he’d best do a better job of sweeping Ashley off her feet.

Or risk losing her forever.

The heroine: Ashley – she was a witch without powers and at one point in her life she made a deal with the devil in order to get some magical powers. The deal stated that her firstborn child would go to Lucifer to be one of his minions. Though when it came time to pay the devil his due, she had nothing. So she goes to Grim Dating to find a man to father her child.

The Hero: Derrick – he is the fixer at the Grim Dating agency. When a problem arises, he was the one that was asked to fix it. However, even Derrick is having trouble finding a match for the witch.

The Story: It turns out that there is a good reason that a match couldn’t be found for Ashley. She was going on a bunch of dates set up by Grim Dating, but turning away all her dates before they even got through the entire meal. She had super high standards for the man who would father her child and she had no tolerance for anyone who didn’t live up to her standards.

I actually didn’t like Ashley from the start, she was not a nice person and made no bones about what she found lacking in anyone she came across, including Derrick. Her personality was pretty off putting and it kind of colored the entire story for me. The last book was a bit whimsical, but this one was more annoying than I expected due to how adversarial Ashley was. She did get better as the book went on, but it was hard to like her after that initial bad impression.

Like the first book in this series, this one was told via solo narration and was narrated by my favorite narrator, Troy Duran. Troy has a deep, sexy, emotive voice and always does a great job.
