#36 - You Slay Me by Katie MacAlister
This book was wacky, strange, horrific, funny,unbelievable.....and a delight to read.
In a nutshell, the story line goes something like this....Aisling Grey goes to work for her father's courier company. Her first job is to deliver a priceless dragon statue to Paris. Things go horribly awry.....and she finds out she is actually a Guardian responsible for protecting a portal to hell, calls up a demon named Jim, and bumps into a rather sexy dragon.
MacAlister's sense of humor and writing style make this strange story come to life....it's a fun romp and definitely something different!
I really enjoyed this book! There are 2 more books in the series so far: Fire Me Up and Light My Fire. A 3rd book, Holy Smokes, will be published this November.
She's also written other books including A Girl's Guide to Vampires, The Corset Diaries, and men in Kilts. She writes Young Adult books under the name Katie Maxwell.
I will definitely be reading the other books in this series! And.....a plug for used books....I wasn't familiar with this author until I took a trip to the thriftstore this week. I bought the book for a quarter......in brand new condition....read it, loved it, posted it on PBS (paperbackswap) yesterday, and today I'm sending it out for a book credit. On PBS, everytime you send a book to another member you get a credit good for another book from the site. I just love trading books there!
