A paranormal romantic comedy at the (possible) end of the world.
All Callie wanted was a quiet weekend with her best friend. She promised her mom she could handle running her family’s escape room business while her mom is out of town. Instead a Satanic cult shows up, claiming that the prop spell book in one of the rooms is the real deal, and they need it to summon the right hand of the devil. Naturally they take Callie and her friend, Mag, along with them. But when the summoning reveals a handsome demon in a leather jacket named Luke who offers to help Callie stop the cult from destroying the world, her night goes from weird to completely strange.
As the group tries to stay one step ahead of the cult, Callie finds herself drawn to the annoying (and annoyingly handsome) Luke. But what Callie doesn’t know is that Luke is none other than Luke Morningstar, Prince of Hell and son of the Devil himself. Callie never had time for love, and with the apocalypse coming closer, is there room for romance when all hell’s about to break loose?
From New York Times bestselling author Gwenda Bond, Not Your Average Hot Guy is a hilarious romantic comedy about two people falling in love, while the fate of the world rests on their shoulders.
Not Your Average Hot Guy is a magical rom-com. Gwenda Bond writes a book that is sure to be a hit with fans of the show ‘Lucifer’.
I was so excited to start reading Not Your Average Hot Guy because it sounded so dangerous with its paranormal elements. It centers around a young woman named Callie and the Prince of Darkness, Luke. One night when Callie is working at her family’s escape room, she and her friend Mag are taken aback when a cult summons a demon. That demon being Luke Morningstar, the Prince of Darkness.
Luke and Callie join forces to try and stop the cult from initiating the apocalypse. I think readers will really enjoy the fun and flirty banter between Luke and Callie. Luke is so charming and such a bad boy that you can’t help but feel intrigued. Callie is strong-willed person who is doing surprisingly well with learning about all the things that go bump in the night.
I give Not Your Average Hot Guy 4 stars. It is a fun and quick read that left me wanting to know more about Callie and Luke’s future. It does end in a bit of a cliffhanger and it worked because I want to know how it will all end.
