Hello friends! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
How are you doing?
I hope you’re up for a short book review, ’cause that’s what today’s post is. A short-ish book review of
For the Hell of It, by Cate Corvin.
They broke my halo.
Burned my wings.
Sent me plummeting straight to Hell.
When I’m captured by demons and forced into the fighting pits of the Seventh Circle of Hell, I need to stay alive long enough to claw my way back to Heaven and destroy the archangels who betrayed me.
Four dangerous men stand between me and my vengeance.
A deadly Nephilim in self-imposed exile. Hunger incarnate, ravenous for an angel. The heir to Satan’s sinful throne. And the prince who bound my soul to his until I win my freedom.
They think I’m still pure. They think I’m innocent. They think they’ll enjoy corrupting me.
Joke’s on them. This angel’s no saint.
If Heaven doesn’t want me, I’ll be bad for the Hell of it.
For The Hell of It is a steamy reverse harem romance for readers 18 and over.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
If you don’t know, now you will: I’ve been on a huge Reverse Harem dive, and hooooboi. It is FAR from over. I love that Reverse Harem mains have people who will be there for their (usually) mate through thick and thing and *sigh* I could only wish to have relationships like these. Fun fact!: Going into these books I thought that I’d be polyamorous. I don’t know if I am (I don’t think I’m a relationship person?? MUCH easier to read and live a relationship through a book than in real life. That’s for sure.) BUT going back to the main point: my review.
For the Hell of It has a genuinely interesting take on hell. The setting of hell is completely, 100% different than the usual renditions of hell that I’ve read in the past. I’m talking about the more….biblical depictions, and frankly, this new scenery it’s an amazing refresher, and I remember I couldn’t get enough of the world.
There are a few different points of view within For the Hell of It. Past me thought there were great to read from as well.
And, as per usual with stories that leave me giddy, I looked forward to reading the next book!
I gave For the Hell of It, 3.5 stars.
Have you read For the Hell of It, or anything else written by Cate Corvin?
Thanks for sticking around! Happy Reading!
