Morgan Skully is the world's only blonde demon girl, and she's got a brand new, very unusual afterschool job. Spying for the Devil. She'd much rather use her cloak-and-dagger skills to spy on hottie-licious Derek with her friends, but the Devil won't take no for an answer. Luckily for Morgan, her new boss is kinda hot. Her assignment is simple: find out who at Pitchfork Prep is funneling secrets to the Siberian Werewolf Council. If she succeeds, pedicures and platinum highlights are just the beginning. But if she fails...there's more on the line than killer shoes.

I was surprised when this one arrived in the mail. I mean, I'd requested it maybe around 2 months ago, but didn't expect to be able to review it. And I'm really glad it landed up with me. This was such a cute book! I was giggling the whole way through. I loved the humor, Morgan and the Devil's ego's "competing" and the whole story was so original, I couldn't help but fall in love with it.
I found this book, as I said before, really original. I've never read a book with demons and the devil himself in it! I really liked that it didn't focus entirely on the mission itself. We got to see a more personal side to Morgan, and that, I felt, really helped me to connect with her (And does anyone get the very clever title?? :D).

I loved Morgan. I fell head-over-heels for her, and I mean quite literally. She may have been the most shoe-obsessed girl I've ever seen, but she's really sweet, shy, and of course, has a hilarious personality! She really does remind me of Elle from the movie Legally Blonde.
This is quite rare for me, but I didn't quite fall for Derek, Morgan's love interest. He's hot, yes, but he wasn't quite as well described and made to look like the amazing-omg-kill-me-now-I-worship-the-ground-you-walk-on guy like the devil was. THE DEVIL. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I fell for the devil's teen self. Morgan should have really chosen better I feel. But oh well...

Overall, Lethally Blonde is that novel on your shelf which you can always pick up if you need a laugh and break from other long and more serious paranormal books. I adore this one and really hope that there'll be a book 2, because even though this ended with no loose knots, I'm dying for more Morgan and the devil!

**Thank you so much to Leap Books for sending me Lethally Blonde for review!**
