Not Your Average Hot Guy | Gwenda Bond | Book Review

Not Your Average Hot Guy is the first book in Gwenda Bond’s new series featuring a battle between heaven and hell. It is a paranormal romantic comedy filled with quirky characters and a touch of romance as the fate of the world is being determined. It took me a bit to get into this story but, I kept pushing and I’m glad I did. Those last few chapters kept me on the edge of my seat.

The main characters in Not Your Average Hot Guy are Callie (human) and Luke (demon) who meet when Luke is summoned by a cult at Callie’s family escape room business. Their initial encounter is far from pleasant. Callie believes that she is being tricked in some type of practical joke and Luke is lying about his true identity. Luke is not only just a demon – he is the Prince of Hell and the son of the Devil himself!

The character Callie is a bit quirky. She is smart and enjoys creating puzzles for the escape rooms. She loves a good challenge which includes figuring how how to stop the apocalypse from happening. She is loyal to her friends and family and hates being betrayed. She also has an adorable dog whom I was worried about through out the book. Thankfully nothing happened to him!

Luke is the son of the devil and he is struggling with is identity. He really doesn’t how to follow in his father’s footsteps nor if he is sure if he wants to. He is a demon with a possibly good soul and it scares the hell out of him. And when he meets Callie he feels attracted, attached, and challenged in a way that was not expected.

Callie and Luke were attracted to each other from their initial meeting. Of course, the circumstances are far from perfect for them. On the surface, they are polar opposites but there is also their connection. At the beginning, I felt that the connection was kind of forced but as the story progressed it started feeling more believable. Intense circumstances do sometimes lead to intense connections and the circumstances for Callie and Luke were very intense. There were lies, secrets, magic powers, and fights. There were also alot of fun pop culture quips which I found enjoyable and though it gave the main characters and side characters more personality.

As Not Your Average Hot Guy is the first book in this series, I look forward to getting to know Callie, Luke, and the other characters better. I feel like there is alot of potential based on the ending. I hope Callie and Luke’s relationship is expanded upon and that there are more adventures together. I want more of the comedic magical moments that were part of the first story. I hope Gwenda Bond does not disappointment me!
