I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

**Warning, this book contains scenes of dead people having sex, only really sexy dead people, not zombies or sparkly vampires. Rest assured, no body parts fell off during the making of these sex scenes, just bras and undies, and no fangs or hammers were used during foreplay.**

What could be worse than getting tricked by a demon and sucked into the fiery pit of doom? Discovering that the demon who captured your soul is also the devastatingly sexy twin of the man who still has your heart.

The only fate worse than eternal damnation is eternal temptation. Someone please get me some water. It’s getting hot in here.

Damned and Desirable is book 2 in the Eternally Yours series by Tara West. This time Ash is kidnapped and taken to hell as a gift for the leader of sub level 1. Aiden has told her not to expect him to come to hell to rescue her if she ever happens to get her soul pulled down there, so Ash feels like she is on her own. She gets help from an unexpected source and is then introduced to this world on hell’s first level. Where the water makes you horny and you have to deal with nagging people from your past.

In Damned and Desirable, you learn a lot about Aiden’s past. It was a little hard having the story take you back and forth from not only the present and the past, but different points of view. We’d get portions of what was happening to Ash, then it would switch and we’d get Aiden’s POV. There are definitely some interesting characters in hell. I can’t imagine what we would find in the lower levels of hell!

There is a prophecy and it involves Ash. However, it appears the prophecy is interpreted in two different ways. Just when you think Ash is being saved, she runs into more problems. Thankfully, Ash is different in hell, and she will surprise you.

Damned and Desirable is full of adventure and revelations. You are left wondering about Ash’s safety, her soul and her relationship with Aiden. I didn’t find this one as funny as I did the first. I was getting used to the revelations of the world and they felt expected. It was a fun adventure and I’m enjoying the characters.

The narration was fun and spunky and fit the story well. Hollie Jackson has Ash and her attitude down pat. I’m still trying to get use to the drawl that she uses for the men. I’m not a fan of Aiden’s voice. But Ms. Jackson does well with the flow of the story. Damned and Desirable is definitely a good listen!
