Boyfriend From Hell by Jamie Quaid is an urban fantasy novel about a twenty-six year old woman who accidentally sends her boyfriend to Hell.
There were many things I liked about this book:
-The main character isn’t perfect. Tina’s a character that a lot of people could relate to. She’s temperamental, body-conscious, and stubborn. She has admirable qualities as well–she’s moral and independent.
-The mythology is developed to a satisfactory level.
-There’s a kitty!
-The writing is solid.
-A lot of creativity went into this story. For example, there’s a girl with big boobs that turns into a chimp when she’s scared. It’s entertaining.
There were only a few things I didn’t like:
-A limo plows down a group of kids. The worst injury is a broken leg. It’s not realistic to me. Since this is a major plot point, it bothered me throughout the whole story.
-At times, Tina seems dumb. She acts surprised when she learns something that she already knew. She also holds onto information without acting on it. Then later, when she does act on it, she acts like it’s new information.
