I'm Just Surprised Anybody Would Date You

Y'all, why did I wait so long to read this book? I needed this months ago when I first bought it quite frankly. I should have read this one long before I did.

The Characters
Emilia: Go bad bitch, go bad bitch, go. I can't go into details on this one without spoiling shit, but honestly, Emilia is who I strive to be in life. She truly took Wrath (and all of Hell) by the balls and said, "Try me, bitch." If you aren't out here looking for an Emilia, don't hit me up. She's about to become my whole personality.
Wrath: I stand by the fact that this noodle is the biggest softie known to man, despite the fact that he is literally the head of the House of Wrath. He tries so hard, and gets so far, but in the end, it doesn't even matter because I see straight through him. If my next partner is not out here treating me the way Wrath is treating Emilia, I don't fucking want it.

Things I Loved
I loved it so much honestly. I loved the "training," I love the sessions where we are getting to know Emilia better as a character as well as the other characters within Wrath's circle of Hell. It made me so happy and I genuinely wish I had been able to get through it faster.

Things I Didn't Love
SpoilerWhat in the fresh hell was the twist with Wrath?? And then also the one with Vittoria???? I rage quit the book for a solid 30 minutes to call a whole ass real life man and yell about this one

The Final Verdict
Bitch, if you're a fantasy lover, you better get out here and get you one of these. I honestly liked this book more than anything I have read lately.
