His love. Her soul. A slayer’s duty. Jay, demon slayer extraordinaire, has gone rogue and is winging her way to New Orleans to meet up with Sophia. She’s expecting nothing more than a fun weekend hanging out with her best friend–until she receives an anonymous call. A contact has information she needs about a weapon and a battle. She arrives at the rendezvous only to find her demon lover, Ash, there. She now has to make one of the biggest decisions of her life…follow her heart or fulfill her duty. For your best reading experience, the Dirty Little books should be read in the following order: Secret, Lie, Trip, Girl, Demons, Boys, Slayer.
According to Moss, this is the final installment of her Dirty Little series. While I didn’t read the others in the series, I had no trouble picking up the story where this one starts. Jay goes back to her roots here only to make an unpleasant discovery and her reaction to it did leave me scratching my head a bit. I would almost have wanted to see more of an emotional reaction from her.
But Moss does a good job with her world-building, however, and the tension between Jay and Ash is quite palpable—and Ash certainly knows how to treat a woman. Jay finds herself tangled in the affairs of deities, which can almost certainly be tricky to resolve. All this takes place in one of my favourite story settings: New Orleans, and Moss certainly lets me feel as though I’m in The Big Easy.
This story’s ending could have used a bit more polish; it feels rushed and a scene that possibly could have added extra tension to the tale gets a bit lost in the narrative summary. All this being said, I like the way the story resolves—Jay really has to decide between her heart and her head. Overall this is a fun, flirty read and there are some lovely character interactions happening.
