Reviewer: Jasmyn


Kate O'Hara can't wait until this temp assignment is over.  The woman who hired her is a psychotic pageant queen, her coworkers are convicts-turned-clerks, and it's so boringly corporate it makers her skin crawl.  Even her sexy-as-sin boss, fames billionaire Thomas Kestral, isn't enticement enough to keep her there.  Once she makes enough to pay off her bills, she's out.  Or so she thinks...


Next thing she knows, she's accidentally signed over her soul.  Literally.  And she's discovered Thomas's real mission: to kill thirteen bad guys in one year, in order to get his - now his and Kate's - souls back.


From learning to boost the morale of some paper-pushing demons to navigating her way through blood-red tape, Kate has to work closely with her super-hot supervisor to get her flaky act together, before somebody clocks her out - permanently!

One of the more quirky reads of the year - Temping is Hell was off to a great start from the very first page.  Kate O'Hara is a young woman with very strong opinions of what corporate America is all about and how wrong it is.  When she finds herself temping for of the biggest corporations around - and finds what she thinks is poor working conditions, she puts her foot down.  When the truth comes out about the company - she finds herself in way over her head, but she may be the only person who can save it.

Through various adventures and mishaps Kate grows always closer to her boss, Thomas - at first her adversary - she finds that he's not such a bad guy.  Well, not after you look past him signing his soul and hers over, mistreating demon workers, and need to kill 13 bad guys.  Kate is in way over her head, but manages to make a joke of it at times.

Slight spoiler alert - the ending was sweet for the romance, but left me definitely needing more for the rest of the story line.  I really hope it turns into a series, because it would be on my must buy list.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
