Hell to Payย by Lisa Emme

4 out of 5 stars

This is the fourth book in the Harry Russo Diaries. You can read my previous reviews for Dead and Kicking, Tooth and Clawย and oops, I didn’t write my review for Deadlocked here, but you can read it on Goodreads here.

Harry’s town has a bit of a problem. People are are going just a teensy bit crazy and beating the snot out of each other. And if that wasn’t enough of an issue, the place where she’d almost been sacrificed is now open for business as a nightclub. It ain’t easy being Harry.

I enjoyed this book as a continuation of Harry and seeing more of her world. The mystery was interesting and not what I was expecting at all, although that could be because I’m slow on the uptake. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Bryce, the literal ghost in the machine, amuses me, although we didn’t get to see much of him in this installment. I love seeing more of Max and can’t wait to get a story with him.

Overall, a fun read.

I read the first Harry Russo book and loved it. So when the author, Lisa Emme, asked me if I wanted an ARC, I almost jumped through my computer screen to yell, “Yes! Give it to me now!” I think I was more polite in my response to her, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In this book, Harry is learning how to control her powers and some parts are damn amusing. Seriously, I was giggling like a crazy women and my husband would just raise an eyebrow at me like I was crazy. And no, I won’t tell you which ones because that would ruin the enjoyment!

Poor Harry also had to keep with her agreement for dinner dates ones a week for nine weeks with the scary magistrate. Although she didn’t keep the truck he gave her. Score one for independent Harry. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nash, what can I say about Nash? He’s an alpha through and through, thinks he knows best although Harry doesn’t let that stop her, and goes out of his way to comfort Harry when she needs it. There were several sigh-worthy moments from Nash, and a few smack-him-upside the heads ones as well, exactly what I want from the hero. Don’t want him boring!

The story and the overall flow was great. Not once did I want to put the book down or get bored. Actually, I told my family that they couldn’t talk to my until I was done. Too bad they ignored me. The ending as left me begging for more. I can’t wait to read the next book. How long until it comes out?

**Disclaimer – I received a copy from the author, but these are my honest opinions.**

I started this book last night and figured I’d read a chapter or two then watch an episode of Supernatural…. I did not watch Supernatural. And those of you who know me, know that I adore Jensen Ackles. So for me to give up staring at my favourite actor to read a book means something.

Harry, the female lead, amused me, although a few times I wanted to smack her upside the head for ignoring some obvious things. I loved that she was loyal and did the right thing even when it landed her into trouble. She didn’t cower away from it. Plus, she wasn’t a bitch! Some people feel that making a woman strong means she has to be a bitch. Ugh.

And Nash… well hello. Now there’s someone I want to wake up next to. While he was overbearing, he was still surprisingly sweet. And Harry, well, she didn’t put up with his shit.

The world building was decent. It slowly unwrapped without overwhelming or giving major info dumps. I want to learn more about Isaac, the vampire, as well as the Magistrate. Now there was one scary dude.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, I loved the characters, and I can’t wait to read more.
