This was a very good story and addition to the series. I liked both Bo and Nyx very much and their story was very good.
Nyx is a half-fae/half-goddess that works for Bo at his supernatural bar. Her mother had her for the wrong reasons and never really loved her. Nyx's father wasn't much better and only saw her as someone he could marry off in an arranged marriage. Nyx has a lot of power but doesn't have great control over it.
Bo is a half-demon/half-human that owns a supernatural bar (in addition to other businesses). Bo was born when his mother was raped by his father. His father wasn't in his life but Bo had a good childhood with his mother who loved him very much. Bo has always had a hard time controlling his demon, usually using fighting or sex to keep it controlled.
Nyx starts working at Bo's bar and makes friends with Keelin (from book #3) as well as some of the other locals. Nyx and Bo become friends but they both have issues that keep them from taking things past the friendship level. Bo wants to though because ever since Nyx came into his life, he hasn't wanted any other women and his demon is calmed by Nyx. Nyx holds back from her attraction to Bo mostly because she's worried about him coming to the attention of either of her parents and them causing trouble for him. This seems like a good fear when her father decides to send people to try to get her to come home to take part in an arranged marriage he set up for her without her consent. Nyx has no intention of following her father's orders and has enough power to keep from being pushed into the marriage but she worries that the issues with her father could cause problems for Bo and her friends.
In the previous book, Nyx needed a favor from her mother and agreed to a favor in return. Nyx's mother asks for the return favor in this book, asking Nyx to deliver a box to a place by a certain time. Nyx and Bo worry that it's a trap so they try to be cautious and scope things out ahead of time...not that it helps much. Trouble ensues and they end up in a hell realm for a while. Thankfully, while the trip causes a strain between Nyx and Bo, it solidifies the need on both sides and Nyx and Bo are both determined to pursue the relationship after that. They have some interesting encounters on their trip and come out of it ok and with some new allies. There are still some issues to handle, mainly Nyx's parents, but Nyx and Bo manages to get through them and end the story starting their HEA together.
This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Nyx and thought she was a good heroine. I liked Bo as well and thought he made a good hero. TBH, the only complaint I had was that I felt like we could have used a bit more background on both MCs (it felt a bit lacking). Outside of that, I really liked the story and would recommend it. :)
