LETHALLY BLONDE BY PATRICE LYLE
Publisher: Leap Books
BLURB from Goodreads
Morgan Skully is the world’s only blonde demon girl and she’s got a brand new, very unusual after-school job. Spying for the Devil. She’d much rather spy on hottie-licious, Derek, with her friends, but the Devil won’t take no for an answer. Lucky for Morgan, her new boss is kinda hot. Her assignment is simple: find out who at Pitch Fork Prep is funneling secrets to the Siberian Werewolf Council. If she succeeds, pedicures and platinum highlights are just the beginning. But if she fails, she’ll be expelled before she can woo Derek into asking her to the Brimstone Ball!
The cover shows Morgan in a pink dress (of course as she is totally so into pink!) with her compact mirror and lipstick also pink, with her gorgeous blonde hair tumbling down her back.Quite a picture of innocence being painted? Well if that's what you think you are totally wrong because Morgan is a Demon!
Not just any demon either she's the blonde (the only blonde demon) from an ancient prophecy. The prophecy actually states that the blonde demon would be the best ever assassin.
The book is kind of a humorous, chick lit in genre. I would say it is aimed at the YA market which it is perfect for.
The book has mystery, suspense, boy trouble and a dash of demon magic...oh and two hot guys, one is called Derek and due to an ancient pact is promised in marriage to a rather snobby girl, the other hot guy just happens to be the devil himself!
So Morgan needs to find out who the traitor is and assassinate them, as well as getting a date for the Brimstone Ball as well as dealing with the devil as her boss!
So did I enjoy the book? Yes. Would I read more in this series? If there are more sure. Would I read more of Patrice Lyle's books? Yes, Patrice has a really great easy flowing writing style. Would i recommend? Yes from young teens upwards.
