Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—she is an Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.
A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.
With the threat of Eryx always looming, Jax knows he has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

The story was mostly centered around Sasha and Jax getting together to form the covenant. There was also the defending the world parts too that kept things interesting.

In the beginning, it was very cute that Jax was the one pining for Sasha. It was one of those "love-at-first-sight" relationships though. The relationship was cute and all but there was this constant tug-of-war of “I want you but *problem*” and the “I love you, but *complication*”. Which got old really fast. Oh and it wasn’t FORBIDDEN love. This was ENCOURAGED!

The event of her father's murder really led up to the point that introduced Sasha into this new world. Since it was her “natural pull”, everything she went through in this new paranormal world felt too normal. The new information was a bit choppy and wasn't really smooth.

I didn’t feel as if there were any character developments, but I did grow to like Jax’s brothers. Especially Zee and their friend Brody.

Overall: This wasn't my favorite read, but it was enjoyable. The ending was great though. I just wished that things picked up earlier in the book instead of 2/3 through. There was enough of a closure with things, but also just enough loose ends. I'd recommend this for fans that lean towards romance more than paranormal.
