Lia Hamasaki is smugly happy as a top editor at the world’s most prestigious publishing house. She’s been passing for human for more than twenty years—her angel wings carefully protected from sight. Those darn wings are her biggest secret. When she hears news that the Cupid Dating agency has found her match and she has to—by law, she has to!—meet a demon, she’s obviously disturbed. Her secret has been carefully kept for decades through a façade of sophisticated elegance and outright lies, and nothing and no one will reveal her secret.
Saphie is free—free from Lucifer’s dungeon where she’d been head writer for thousands of years, and she’s free from Lucifer’s torture. Not only that, but the ever-romantic demon has just been matched with an angel—be still her punk-rock, poetess heart. But as she meets the angel who could be the girl of her dreams, she realizes she won’t fit into the angel’s elegant world. Further, heartbreakingly, the angel doesn’t seem to want her in the first place.
But the law is the law, and the two opposites have to stay glued to each other for the next forty-eight hours where they have a snowball’s chance in hell to fall in heavenly love. But sometimes, especially when the Devil is in the details, those chances are worth the risk.
“Touchingly sweet and sassy and smexy story about an angel and a demon who are required to use a dating agency. Yes, that is an overly simple explanation but what fun! It’s the story of Lia Hamasaki, who is an angel, and Saphie, a demon, who are paired up via a supernatural agency – Cupid Dating Agency. I thought, when I first read the name, that CDA would be a sweet, fun organization. Oh boy, was I wrong! The folks there are irreverent, funny, snarky, and take no crap from anyone. Not your standard idea of Cupid!
Both Lia and Saphie have things in their pasts that, although circumstances are so VERY different, are heartbreakingly sad. Lia and Saphie are just two very different “people” at their core! It’s the process that each of them goes thru within the story that makes it such a great read. And when they DO work thru it? That’s the seriously smexy side of this story about their relationship and how they navigate all their thoughts and misconceptions. Different take on the whole dating agency storyline but I enjoyed.” -gds, an Amazon reviewer
