“I really liked Dakota's Accidental series, but this series is sorely lacking. I'm not a big fan of personal dialog that repeats itself and being able to see what the characters should do to make it a happy ending. I prefer twists to the plot line that make the solution to the problem not be so transparent. If you don't mind all those things though, it isn't too horrible of a story.”Fire Raven wrote this review Thursday, October 13, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“If I could give this book 3 1/2 stars I would. I have found in the past Cassidy's books to be very format driven and very quid pro quo. This book was invigorating and fresh! I was anxiously awaiting many aspects of this book and was pleasantly surprised when I figured out the ending because I knew that option made sense. I was hoping for a little more in the epilogue but beggar's cannot be choosers! Enjoy!”josieD wrote this review Tuesday, February 1, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“My Way to Hell by Dakota Cassidy
Paranormal Romance – July 6, 2010
My Way to Hell is the second novel by Dakota Cassidy in her new Demonic Romance series. This book picks up after the event in the first novel Kill & Hell started the character off. This book is a good paranormal romance with a lot of fun comical elements that contributes to make a overall interesting and intriguing story.
Marcella Acosta is a demon. After a battle with Satan, she is reformed and condemned to the in-between place, neither heaven nor hell. She can’t just snap her fingers and escape from “Plane Drab”. She needs a medium to summon her specifically. Without somebody’s help, she’ll never be able to tell Delaney, her best friend, that she is okay. Her sacrifice was worth it. Easier said than done because she finds out many of these so called experts are charlatans. And then Kellen, her best friend’s brother, accidentally pulls her into the living realm. Only she’s without any abilities, control, or material form. Kellen hasn’t been having an easy time of this ghost whisperer stuff. Because of Delaney’s death (even though she was brought back to life) his ability to see dead people is not the wonderful and fulfilling experience his sister had. What’s more he can touch them, and they can touch him. Not even his sister had that ability. It’s probably why he missed the signs when Marcella gave him her message because when they hold an impromptu séance, sure enough she pops in.
Now that she’s passed on her message, she’s stuck in our realm with a strange need to help a little boy, Carlos Ramirez. And surprise! He can also see her. However while she searches for a way to return to Plane Drab, while she helps Kellen communicate with ghosts without getting punched, while she finds out why she has an irrational urge to help Carlos and his family, she has to fight her growing attraction to Kellen. When she was alive and in demon form, she kept her distance by sparing with him. Now he’s being nice, and it’s even more of a turn on.
I had fun time reading this novel. The language is light, fast and easy to read. The scenes and conclusions start becoming predictable, but that didn’t matter. I still wanted to read because the author made me believe that there could be a happily-ever-after for Marcella and Kellen.The characters may start out shallow at first but an unexpected depth quickly becomes apparent in them. This is the first book I’ve read in this series, but it was easy to get caught up in the characters and like them. Once Kellen asked the question, I was curious to find why Marcella was a demon. For a more enjoyable time and a better understanding of the characters you might want to start with the first book in this series Kiss and Hell where you will first meet these characters.
