What’s standing between you and financial stability? For Heidi, it’s being a single mom of two young teens, an ex who doesn’t contribute, no college degree, no family support, and she just lost one of her jobs. Someone keeps sending her spam mail with nothing but a QR code. To humor her kids she scans the QR code with her phone and a demon appears offering her 28 days to find her success.
After the commotion of a demon appearing calms down, she finds that she doesn’t have to sell her soul to get a little help. Drystan offers Heidi the opportunity to use him to make a small fortune, but Heidi isn’t interested in exploiting him. Instead she asks for the kind of help one might ask of a partner or family. With Drystan the demon doing the housework, cooking, and watching the kids while she works a night shift, Heidi gets some breathing room. She has a partner who supports her, helps the kids with their homework, and bakes actual cinnamon rolls, in addition to being one himself.
Though domestic help doesn’t solve all of Heidi’s problems, she’s able to focus on one thing at a time instead of keeping all the plates spinning. In addition to picking up the household slack, Drystan is also emotionally supportive and kind. Naturally, Heidi and Drystan fall in love. When the kids are at a sleep over, they have a date. SPOILERS: There is monster fucking with horn pulling and a surprise appendage, but no mandibles. END SPOILERS.
This is a great read if you are feeling a little overwhelmed by life and think you might like a kind demon to come clean your house so you can get your life together. It was relaxing and heartwarming.
