Blog Tour ~ The Book Waitress by Deena Remiel


I am giddy SQUEE excited.
 
Yep, I know I say that a lot but this ... this is DEENA REMIEL! She's the author that brings you the UBER sexy Brethren series and swoony reads such as Picture Perfect, and Ghost of a Chance. When she announced she was publishing a brand new series I couldn't wait .... and ta-da here it is! I'm grateful to be a stop on her blog tour and that I had the chance to review The Book Waitress  - I. Loved. It! And here's why ....



My Review
 
 Wow.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Mega Wow.

I'm used to swooning whenever I read something by Deena Remiel, and The Book Waitress was no different. I loved the concept behind the book - a shy woman who takes a job in a library and gets WAY more than she bargained for. Mystery and intrigue with foul plots abound and yes ... a VERY sexy man is involved.

Camille doesn't like people, prefering books, so working in the library is the perfect occupation. But everything isn't as it seems - from the bizarre behavior of her coworkers to resident ghosts that love to mess around with her. When she meets Derek, things start to heat up and she finds herself caught in an investigation that surprisingly involves ... HER.

I really loved the characters in this book. Camille and Derek were the perfect blend of humor and shy cuteness - you wanted them to get together. They complimented one another and I loved watching everything unfold. I got the feeling I was glimpsing something special .. you know, the budding romance and newness when you discover "Wow, you make me light headed and weak at the knees ... look my hands tremble when you're near." I can't wait to see how this series progresses because I know the spark between Camille and Derek will keep growing and growing.

Okay. Usually its the hero that has me swooning, so I was a little surprised by this but HOLY HECK ... I loved, loved, loved the villian in The Book Waitress. Victor was completely SINISTER. Deena Remiel can write evil like no other ... she held NOTHING back and dived straight into Hell to deliver us perfection. He was menacing. He was callous. He was cold and unfeeling. He was DELICIOUS. The creep factor that radiated off the pages he was on made my skin crawl, his actions toward the end made me want to vomit. Hahaha ... and I LOVED IT. Victor was the character that put this story over the top and had me thinking of the story weeks after I finished it. I know, I'm a freak but hey, I embrace it.

This is definitely a book you want to read. It has everything in it from romance to mystery to horror to the supernatural. Deena Remiel knows exactly how to ellicit emotion from her readers and delivers a story that will leave you begging for more. Grab a copy of the book and don't forget to tip your waitress - she's been through Hell <3

Camille Dutton learned early in life Satan was not to be trifled with. Escaping his evil clutches as a child, he's come back with a vengeance for her now. Derek Galloway's inquisitive nature has led him to be an award-winning investigative reporter and straight into the path of pure evil.

When a child vanishes from a sleepy island town, Camille, its subdued librarian, becomes embroiled in Derek's investigation. A satanic cult has plans for the child, while Satan has plans for Camille and the rest of the world. Amidst evil of the most supernatural and human kind, Derek and Camille find a shred of light and goodness in the form of their budding relationship.

First in the Book Waitress Series, the portal between Hell and Earth will be torn asunder, and it will take everything Camille and Derek have and then some to close it. Satan won't go down easy, but nothing worth everything comes without a price.
