Hades by Larissa Ione
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've been wanting to read this story for a while. While we met Cat briefly in the previous book, this was a good chance to see her paired up with the unlikely Hades. The author, of course, manages to spin it all into an absolutely perfect romance.
Hades might look like a tough guy, but he's got the perfect blend of sarcasm, humor, and heart. When facing off with his own jailor, Azagoth, he's tough as nails, but when he is faced with babies or friends, he is a whole different person. Cat, however, is still trying to find herself. Sure, she's trying to redeem her horrible actions by acting as Azagoth's housekeeper, but admittedly she is pretty bad at it. She breaks stuff all the time, but this time she has inadvertently let some souls slip passed Azagoth's judgement. Woops.
In an attempt to make things right, she ends up throwing herself into the worst possible place for her - the Underworld. Aside from her little incident, the whole place is also in the midst of its own riots and escape attempts. Luckily, she's got her reluctant hero, Hades, who just so happens to also be her secret crush. These two sizzled and popped right off the pages when they were alone. The combination of innocent curiosity and bad boy antics was perfection. If you're a fan of this series, the author's world, or just paranormal romance, this 1001 Dark Nights is required reading.
