Hate your job? Try working in HELL!
Melody Angel takes a job as a temp at the HELL Corporation. Surrounded by eternal bureaucracy gone mad, demons who love making life miserable, and dying for a decent coffee, it may take a miracle for Mel's mission to succeed. She must find out what evil plans the Lord of Lies has up his sleeve and stop him, using any means necessary. Lucifer and his minions are out to take over the world, but there's more than money at stake when the Devil drives.
Adding trouble and temptation to Mel's job is Luce Iblis, the damnably hot CEO, who has set his smoldering eyes on the new office angel and is determined to claim her, body and soul.
Can ultimate evil and angelic perfection escape a limbo of desire and find a paradise of their own?

Hey guys, today I've got a little review of See You in Hell, which is the second book in the "Mel Goes to HELL" series, but I feel like you can read it without reading the first book. I received a copy from Reading Addiction Book Tours for review. :)

Melody Angel is currently working as a temp at the HELL Corporation. A sheep among wolves, quite literally. Her mission is to find out what Lucifer, the Lord of the Underworld, has in mind and stop him before he takes over the world. Her main suspect is the CEO, Luce Iblis, but there's nothing that gives her solid evidence that he's Lucifer, other than his confusing aura and high position in the company. He's pretty darn hot, but she can't let that get in the way of her mission. She has to stop the Lord of the Underworld before it's too late.

Mel is absolutely adorable. She's pretty much everything you'd expect an angel to be. Kind, compassionate, loving, etc. Her personality reminded me a lot of Serena St. Clair from Where Demons Fear to Tread as they are literally almost identical. They both have this bright personality and limitless supply of love. Unlike the other angels who work at HELL, Mel actually treats her demon co-workers as if they're equal to her, as opposed to treating them like dirt. Essentially, she's pretty much the perfect angel. I thought she was okay, but after a while, it did get a tad bit annoying because everything was focused on her.

Luce on the other hand is 110% bad, but you don't really get to see much of that. I feel like we spend a huge portion of the book reading about how perfect Mel is and not enough of it learning about who LUCE is. Hello, he exists guys, don't forget about him. For the CEO and possible Lord of Hell, he doesn't get enough of that spotlight because it's all shined on Mel. Personally, I really wish we could have seen him in more action, it would have made the book a lot more fun.

There isn't much character growth in the story, but what can you expect? The characters are demons and angels, they've been around for centuries. So if you're big on getting to know your characters and bonding/growing with them, you might want to steer clear. Also, it dragged on for a bit too long. Like I mentioned before, a huge chunk of the book is spent on Mel and not a lot it is action. Another point, I feel like the ending was a bit too abrupt. You get this revelation and you're all excited because this, THIS is the moment that you've been waiting for the entire book. And then, swipe a couple of times (e-book), and the story is over? Um, I was just getting excited... 

Overall, this was a pretty slow read for me. At first, I was really excited about what was going to happen because I could aspects of Where Demons Fear to Tread in the characters, and I absolutely adored that book. After reading it, I have to say that this did fall a bit short of my expectations. But, I definitely ship Luce and Mel. The bad demon lord and the perfect angel, cliched, but still a pretty darn cute couple. See You in Hell was an okay read for me and I caution those who pick it up with really high hopes for a romantic heart throb story. :)

3 out of 5 stars
