If you don't remember, earlier this year I raved about Straight to Hell, the first book in the Lilith Straight series. Now, I'm so excited to have gotten a chance to review Straight to Heaven as well! I have to say it didn't disappoint. I'm also doing a character interview tomorrow, so be sure to stop by and see who it is I interviewed!!

Hell’s newest employee, Lilith Straight, thinks she’s got a handle on her job as the Devil’s temptress until she finds herself going horns-to-halo with a guardian angel who’s determined to rescue Lilith’s next victim. To make matters worse, William Darcy, the hottest demon in hell, is trying to undermine Lilith’s mission with a few temptations of his own.
The first book in this series, Straight to Hell, was an unexpected find earlier this year. I devoured that one in one sitting, and I pretty much did the same with this one. After rescuing her daughter from the clutches from her evil boss Helen Spry by hurting the others in her family at the end of the last book, Lilith has been a good little succubus following orders. Everything seems normal for her new assignment until she meets a guardian angel that botches her job.
This one wasn’t as funny as the first one for me, mainly because the humor of the situation has worn off now that Lilith has been a succubus for a while. However, despite not having to live from paycheck to paycheck, since apparently it pays a lot to work for the Devil, her life is somehow still a mess. She still has to take care of her niece and her daughter, her stepsister isn’t talking to her, she has this new guardian angel to deal with, not to mention fending off William’s advances. Complicated right? I’m glad that’s not my life.
It was a quick and lighthearted read and the plot moved fast enough to keep me interested. There’s never an end to the trouble Lilith is in. If she’s not working, some kind of family emergency comes up. However, I did find Lilith to be a bit selfish in this one. She made everything out to be about her somehow, but she’s still a likeable character because you can really sympathize with her.
Overall, a great continuation to the first book! I’m curious to see with Michelle takes this series. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for something light and fun to read.
