Summary from Goodreads:

Katie didn't send her boyfriend to Hell, but she's going there to bust him out! 

Katie thinks she’s going crazy when a baby angel and death’s personal assistant appear on her doorstep. Both claim she’s destined for something great. If she can survive, that is. She’s drawn into a world filled with immortals like Rhyn, an outcast who claims her as his mate in a show of defiance to his brothers. Katie rescues Rhyn from Hell, and he discovers fast just how special his little human is. With Death counting his days on one hand, Rhyn must learn to love, before his own time is up and Katie becomes the first human casualty in the brewing war between immortals.

Will the love between a gifted young woman and an immortal outcast save the world-- or destroy it?

My Review:

5 Fan-freakin-tasitc Stars!
I love books that make you keep reading no matter how tried you are.  Katie’s Hellionkept me up late into the night absorbing the pages as fast as I could.  I can’t even begin to count how many times I thought, just one more page, and before I knew it, it was 1:00 in the morning and the book was finished.

Katie’s Hellion left me pleasantly exhausted.  I absolutely loved everything about this book.  Katie was a bit of a drunk and had a hard go at life, but in no time she found herself wishing for her old crappy life back.  She wakes up one morning to find herself with a child she doesn’t remember having, and sucked into a world she never knew existed.  Before long she ends up in Hell—literally—locked up beside Rhyn, her immortal mate.

After busting Rhyn out of Hell, Katie does everything she can to escape his grasp.  He’s not the most pleasant creature to be around.  She soon finds that the man that drives her crazy may just be the better evil to side with.  With a war brewing and a dangerous mate stalking her every move, Katie is certain that one or the other will lead to her death.  Can she tame the wild Rhyn?  Will she survive this new world?  Read Katie’s Hellion to find out.

Katie is a kickass heroine.  Even though she drank too much, and relied on drugs to keep her sane, she was spunky and had a good head on her shoulders.  She stood up for herself, and even when she was sure she couldn’t win the battles, she faced each one with her head held high.

Ford’s writing is near flawless.  She draws you in and keeps you wanting more.  Her description and world building was amazing.  Other than a few typos and inconsistencies (which I hardly notice because the story was so awesome) the pages flowed wonderfully.

What else … Oh … I love Rhyn.  He’s completely flawed and absolutely prefect.  I loved his snark and his strength, and I loved watching him grow as the book progressed.  He was the perfect jackass.  At this point I would be happy to read novel after novel as long as Rhyn is in them.

Katie’s Hellion is definitely a re-read kind of book.  If you like kickass heroines, flawed heroes, and paranormal hotties, then you need to read this book.
