Now that she's escaped her oppressive family, Nyx is enjoying her new life and friends - even if most of her friends don't know who or what she is. As a rare demigod, she's just learning how powerful she truly is, but family drama turns her world upside down, throwing the one man she cares about into danger.
He wasn't supposed to fall for her....
Nyx is nothing like the females half-demon Bo Broussard has been with. Sweet and innocent, she's not even remotely his type. But the moment she walks into his bar, he knows he's not letting her go. Unfortunately, someone from her past thinks they can force her into an arranged marriage.
He's not letting her go....
Someone is targeting one of them, and Bo doesn't know why. When they're thrown into a hell realm together, he and Nyx will need to band together if they want to survive the perils of that world. No matter who was behind the attack, his choice is clear. Defend Nyx at all cost and make her his forever.

Very good addition to the series :)
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. :)

Ooh, there was a ton to love about the setup on this one, but my favorite was simply the dichotomy of the characters. Nix is half fae/half goddess of Chaos. Bo is half demon...and I can't remember his other half...maybe human? But regardless, the two of them together make for a really powerful partnership.
Which is good because this story takes them on a non-stop action adventure that made for some really riveting story. I loved every second of reading this book.
And I loved where the series went with the introduction of several new intriguing characters that again...I really love. I cannot wait for more in this series.
And as always, Jeffrey Kafer does an incredible job of narration. I love both his male and female voices as well as the myriad of voices. My only complaint with this one was it was really obvious when corrections had been spliced into the audio as the sound quality had quite a bit of variation.
But overall, it was another great installment to this paranormal series that I'm thoroughly enjoying. I also really like that the audiobooks are a little shorter than normal. It makes it where I can look at the series of 7 or 8 books and not be overwhelmed. And the stories aren't lacking at all even though they're a bit shorter than the norm.
