Lethally Blonde

Patrice Lyle
Paranormal Romance
Young Adult

"He was cut like a multi-faceted diamond, the very kind a girl dreams of getting someday."

As a teen demon, all Morgan is worried about is finding a way to keep up her obsession with all things fashion and pink with a limited budget.  Oh, and finding a way to get Derek to ask her to the Brimstone Ball.  But the Devil has other plans, like using her as a spy to root out a mole in the school.  What can a girl do - you can't say no to the Devil.  Besides, he's really hot.  But her mission might not be as easy as she thinks, especially when Derek becomes a delicious distraction.  Can she find a way to deal with being both a spy for the devil and deal with being a teenaged demon?  Because failing in her new job is not an option, no matter what other drama comes up.

My Opinion: This was a really cute and enjoyable book.  It took me a few pages to get into a paranormal romance that didn't deal with the normal - as in no humans, but it was well written so that more than compensated.  I felt like I was in the head of a sixteen-year-old "valley girl" the whole time.  It felt reminiscent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie, not the series), which is always good in my book.  Morgan is hilarious and fun and easy to relate to.  The Devil character took on an unusual role making him less of a fiend and more of a mentor and friend.  He was actually quite likable.  Derek was cute and adorable and apparently a good kisser (though not too detailed so I may have just filled that in myself).  The romance was sweet and pulled you in whether you wanted to or not.  I loved this book and would recommend it to the young; and recommend the young at heart to be prepared to roll their eyes a few times and laugh anyway.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.

  1. Ooh I found this one a little while ago and I've been curious - mostly since it's a play on Legally Blonde, which I love. The idea of Lethally Blonde sounds fun and humourous! I'm also glad to hear that it's a funny one- that' snice to hear as well. I enjoy that in some books :)

    Thanks for your review!
