Hell s Belles by Jackie Kessler is a dirty little book The sex scenes are hot Geez, even the heroine s daydreams are smokin But then again, what else would you expect from a book that tells the story of Jezebel, a succubus running from Hell s Hunters who asks a witch to make her mortal then moves to New York City and becomes an exotic dancer to pay the rent It does have all the elements for one sizzling tale.and it really does deliver on those elements.It s not just a hot book though It s a good book too Jezebel is a succubus who is kind of going though an identity crisis of sorts You see, she s developing feelings And demons don t have feelings That s worst than having cooties We don t really know what happened that made her run We just know she s afraid and needs to get away By becoming mortal, she figures she has a better chance of slipping under Hell s radar She is such a cute and charming character, full of conflicting emotion yet not too serious She s been around humans for 4,000 years, but she s never been one As you witness her trying to fit in, you can t help but want her to be okay And Jezabel is a funny gal Her one liners are hilarious While waiting at the train station, she meets Paul Paul is sweet and sexy and nice And he doesn t care when Jezebel cries because she s been hurt or is confused Yes, I said he doesn t mind Can there be aperfect man Through the book we slowly learn about Paul, but for most of the book we only know that he s a great guy who cares for our Jesse the name Jezebel goes by But don t worry You never feel lost and you will eventually get all the info you want.The way the story is written is great You know Jesse is running but you don t know why Actually, you don t really know from whom exactly either I learned the hard way that reading the titles of the chapters is very important in this book I must admit that sometimes I don t so much do that I am too anxious to get to the story Am I really the only one So I m reading away at this book and suddenly, I find myself lost I don t know why Jesse is in the bar at the end of the last chapter and in Hell in this chapter Then I noticed that the chapters titles actually tells you when that particular part of the story is going to take place, whether it be now or before Yep Sort of important smacks forehead Through the story you are sent from the present to the past, from the hotel she s staying at to Hell to the club Jackie does this very well The bouncing around never feels forced or awkward The story is told as the story is supposed to be told, and everything falls in place at the end And even though there is a happy at the end, there is also a lot of but but but So it s a good thing that there is another book in this series and lots and lots of novellas.I am glad I finally picked up this book I originally bought it because the reviews that I d read said it was a good story with fun characters with a wicked sense of humor And they were right I really enjoyed this book I laughed many times and giggled many others I have the second book The Road to Hell in my book closet and I am going to pick it up because I really want to know where Jesse and Paul end up They are an endearing, funny and hot couple And really, is there a better combination I loved this one If you like sarcastic, strong, slightly funny female heroines in urban fantasy, this is a good choice Jezebel is a succubus who has run away from hell Her reason for leaving is a big secret slowly revealed throughout the book She gets a witch to turn her human enough to keep the demons who hunt her off her back, and goes to New York where she gets a job as an exotic dancer and starts to fall for a guy For an evil creature, you can t help but love Jezebel She s the bad girl you really want to be friends with because she s just that fun to be around Really enjoyable I can t wait to read the next one.
