Author: Eve Langlais
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: January 7, 2021
My Rating: 4 stars
Pushing Up Posies begins the Grim Dating series, which is connected to the Welcome to Hell series – so don’t be surprised to see a familiar face here and there. If you haven’t read the Welcome to Hell series, no worries, you can dive in and enjoy yourself with Posie and Brody. But you will be tempted to go pick up the earlier stories.
It seems Lucifer doesn’t have enough minions in Hell. What’s the devil to do about that? Well. Open a dating service between humans and those who reside in Hell, all those babies that are sure to be a result of this mastermind plot are certain to be enough minions to fill those empty spots. But… a dating service run by a reaper? Now that’s something you don’t think about too often, if ever.
I had such a good time with Pushing Up Posies. Brody is delicious and Posie is, well, not quite what she seems since as a human she shouldn’t be able to see through the glamour to the real creatures it masks… but she does. Although, she doesn’t believe in anything supernatural at all, even though she’s interacting with them constantly. The banter between Posie and Brody often had me in chuckles and Lucifer is… well, does he ever really change? No, not really. Watching this couple figure out what they’re feeling for each other (beyond lust) was a fun adventure. But watch out for twists and perhaps a surprise along the way because that’s just how Eve Langlais rolls… expected the unexpected in any of her stories.
I had fun here and even though I’ve a bit to catch up on with the series, that just makes it easier to do a binge read. Problem solved. If you love a good Paranormal Romance with irony, humor, sizzling chemistry, and some very interesting characters then Pushing Up Posies would be perfect for you.
