In The Date from Hell, the sequel to Not Your Average Hot Guy, New York Times bestselling author Gwenda Bond brings the journey of Callie, Luke, and their friends to a wonderful close. This is another laugh out loud, action-packed romantic adventure you won’t want to miss.
After saving the world and stopping the apocalypse, Callie and Luke are looking forward to a quiet, romantic weekend together. When you’re human and dating the Prince of Hell, quiet moments are hard to come by. But their romantic weekend in Hell takes a turn when Lucifer tasks Callie and Luke with chasing a wayward soul around the world. If they can prove it’s possible to redeem a soul, Lucifer will allow the two of them to make some changes in Hell.
But this wayward soul, Sean, doesn’t have any interest in being redeemed. Instead, now that he’s back on Earth, he’s decided to take a leaf out of Callie and Luke’s book and wants to find the Holy Grail. Now Callie, Luke, and their friends—and enemies—must race Sean around the globe on a Grail quest and bring peace between Heaven and Hell before they can finally (maybe) get around to that date.
Zany, warm, and entertaining!
The Date From Hell is a fun-filled, spirited tale that takes us back into the life of Luke and Callie as they try to head out on a date that unfortunately gets a little sidetracked when they make a deal with the devil, they agree to prove that damaged souls deserve a second chance, and they somehow end up on a hunt for the holy grail.
The writing is witty and smooth. The characters are spunky, spontaneous, and clever. And the plot is a playful tale full of family, friendship, desire, adventure, intrigue, humorous hijinks, hilarious mishaps, special abilities, and love.
Overall, The Date From Hell is a comical, light, action-packed tale by Bond that I enjoyed even more than the first novel in the series, Not Your Average Hot Guy, and is the perfect way to wrap up this duology which guarantees hell will never be quite the same.
