Karma is the boss at Karma for Hire, and she has it rough. Not only does she have to work in a stuffy office, where she literally hasn’t had a day off in millennia, but she also has to try to keep the peace between a misfit crew of angels and demons; they can’t dole out the karma if they are constantly fighting among themselves. Her efforts are thwarted by Thadeus, a succubus whose scheming to get her into bed hasn’t wavered in just as long. Worse still, her defenses are waning; it’s tough to fight the advances of an entity that can transform into your every desire whenever you see him. When a chance encounter in The Void causes Karma to break the rules of her contract, all Hell may be unleashed, all Heaven as well. It’s a race against time as Karma and her friends try to prevent Armageddon, save human existence, and keep their vacation days!

In Karma for Hire, Hennessee Andrews explores the day to day grind of the angels and demons responsible for giving people what’s coming to them. With an enjoyable story and a cast of well-defined but wonderfully flawed characters, Karma for Hire had a charm that I found irresistible. Even with Armageddon looming on the horizon, Andrews perfectly captured Karma’s turmoil as she found herself slowly and inexplicably drawn to Thadeus – or perhaps explicably, as he is a succubus. The characters’ struggles all seemed so relatable that I was immediately drawn in and couldn’t stop reading until the story was over. With lines like, ‘I want to save humanity, get the girl and go back to being evil with days off,’ I found myself rooting for angels and demons alike. Equal parts love story, comedy, and a race to save humanity, Karma for Hire has something for everyone. If you’re thinking of passing it up, think again!
