      Omg, no. I'm not sure why I even bothered to start this, except for it was $.99 and has like 8,000 five-star reviews. I can understand the $.99 part, but the five-star reviews? Nope. Must be from all those folks who love the Casts' House of Night series. Amber and Dallas are the absolute stupidest characters I've come across in a very long while, and the whole set-up is just badly done. It reads very much like a first draft to me, like Scott was just sort of coming up with things as she went alo [...]

      Having just completed an epic fantasy series I have spent the past 3 hours trolling to find a new series to sink my teeth into. That's right - 3 hours of going though the lists, reading the reviews and deciding if I felt like sticking with the historical/magical fantasy adventures or dipping back into the vampire genre of which there is a disgustingly high amount of seriously crappy reads that upset my inner hippy when I think about all the poor trees who gave their lives in the process. There [...]

      Read a book written by an author who shares your initials.After a little bit of thinking and pondering, I actually decided to give this book 3 stars instead of 2. Which rarely happens. But it just did.So basic plot in a nutshell, Amber comes to remote Scotland to be the maid of enigmatic and wealthy Aidan McCallister. Though cooking and cleaning is not Amber's forte, she was selected from some pretty stiff competition, and she really needs money for college, so instead of having fun in London, s [...]

      Head over to yabookscentral for more of my reviews.I was torn between 4 and 5 stars. Everyone who knows me knows I don't give 5 stars easily. In the end, I decided it deserved five stars rather than four because it truly stands out from the crowd and was one of the most entertaining, action packed and funny books I've read in a long time. I'm not going to sum up the plot because others have done it before me. Here's what I liked and what I didn't like so much.To begin with, the punctuation is Br [...]

      I read this book in less than 2 days after I stumbled across the free sample chapters. I highly recommend it to everyone. Once you start reading & laughing, you will love it as much as me! The book was full of twists & turns I didn't expect and kept me hooked from the first pages I thought Twilight was good, but this book nearly threw me. For one, all the characters were so diverse and likeable. There is Amber, a normal teenage girl with wit and humor, her overconfident brother Dallas, w [...]

    6. Mercy Dragonslayer on said:

      This is one of those books--one of the LEADING of those books--where I just really can't say what I hated the most! Was it the moronic Amber who can't make up her mind about anything and whines like a neglected teakettle stuck in a time-loop? Was it the dumb, dumb, DUMB Aidan who, throughout the entire book, is sticking his face in beehives, tripping over his own feet, or serenading a girl he shared all of three words with? Was it the cardboard secondary characters, who sit around and twiddle th [...]

      Absolutely INCREDIBLE. I mean: WOW. This book was amazing. I’m lost for words. I wish I could write this review in red or gold because that’s how much I loved it. Seriously, when I started I didn’t expect much. Now I have an addiction. It’s called “I lost my heart to A job from hell” – This book has hit home with me.To start…When I got the book, I wanted to save it for a quiet weekend as I was supposed to learn for my exam, but lazy me, I had to start rather than learn and couldn [...]

    8. Laila on said:

      When I saw this book I instantly wanted to read it, I love all of J. Scott's work because she fills each book with lots of plot and action, I'm a big fan and I think this book is great. It's funny, and if you can't laugh at it then maybe you're a little too uptight. It was made to be funny and I think any paranormal fan would like it.

    9. Jayde Scott on said:

      I'm the author so, naturally, I'm biased. After a year of writing and editing 94,000+ words, this is my baby. Never felt about any other book this way before.

    10. Bex on said:

      A word of warning before you read this book, this book is difficult to put down. Just thought I should warn all potential readers and trust me you DO want to read this book.A job from Hell by Jayde Scott is an astounding book, it’s not very often that a book grabs me from the first page and holds my attention till the very end; but Jayde Scott did absolutely that. The characters are well written, I especially like Amber’s sarcastic personality, it made for some very enjoyable reading.Sevente [...]

      Every now and then comes a book I wish it would never end. This was one of them. It was very funny, I've no idea how many times I actually laughed, but it was a lot.Seventeen-year-old Amber's forced to take a work placement in Scotland as a housekeeper during the summer holidays before she starts college. She needs the money and the job pays well.The house is eerie, dead. Its inhabitants, sexy Aidan, his brother Kieran and beautiful Clare, are hardly ever there, always arriving at night, if ever [...]

    12. Amy on said:

      My thoughts? The cover was definitly an eye-catcher. That's what lead me to 'A Job From Hell' in the first place(it was b/c of the title too). And when I read the summary I made up my mind- Read it is. Once I was through half the book I realized this wasn't what I expected(in a good way). The most lovable thing is -what else?- the relationship. Amber and Aidan are great together. You have all the conflicts and humor(Bonus!). Also the wonderful characters- Cass and Kieran always getting on top of [...]

      MY GOD, STOP WITH THE FRICKIN' BANTERING! *deep breath* Okay, with that out of the way, this is a book with some nice ideas that rubbed me entirely the wrong way. Amber has just been dumped off at a castle in Scotland to work as a housekeeper. It's clear she is out of her league, but that's okay because they are there to steal some diamonds from a hut. I'm not sure how Amber's brother even found that they were there, but okay. Unfortunately those diamonds are part of a puzzle that confers the ab [...]

      Warning: This book is CONTAGIOUS! This is the best supernatural book I have read! OMG it kept me on the edge of my seat.My Rating: 5 of 5!My Cover Thoughts: I love the cover because it shows a girl dressed in a white dress running from the woods towards a house.My Thoughts/Review: okay, okay so where to start! OMG I got this as a book recommendation and thought hey this sounds like an awesome read. This is the BEST read I have had in a long time. I was so entranced in this book I could not put i [...]

      This is a must Summer read!!! A Job from Hell was a real page turner I could not put down. If you're new to Jayde Scott, then hang on for a heart pounding author who knows how to get the blood pumping. Jayde Scott has done a phenomenal job by taking us into the daily life of an intelligent woman stricken with a gift that she doesn't want to have but makes her the target of people who have real supernatural powers and want what she has. I had so many questions with this book: Can Amber trust Aida [...]

    16. Melanie on said:

      Gah.There are so many things that annoy me about this book. So I'm not going to go into it too much, otherwise it'll just turn into a rant.It has all the cliches of a paranormal romance, and all the characters are quite flat. The lead - Amber - is supposed to be all strong-willed and adjusts to the idea of vampires/demons etc. very quickly, yet gets talked into stealing some jewels in about 30 seconds flat. She can't make up her mind about Aiden (gorgeous vampire cliche - check!) and seems to go [...]

    17. Vicky on said:

      OK so here goes.I never write reviews for books- as I think books are like art, creatively written with everyone having their own interpretations so there is not really a " best" and " worst" out there. Right? I happened to find this book while searching for a good book to read and for 99 cent I don't think I had anything to lose. But Wow. A job from hell is amazing. I am complete awestruck. Everything fits perfectly. The whole book was intense, loved especially page 308 till 398 when Amber desc [...]

    18. LouiseC. on said:

      A job from hell blew my mind. Non stop action from start to finish. Lots of twists and an end I didn't expect. Loved all of the characters especially Amber and Cass. This book is the first series since Twilight and the Vampire Diaries that I really like and that says a lot. There are many fiction books that show a weak protagonist, but this was the opposite. Amber shows courage in the face of a deadly situation. She doesn't allow her strong feelings to intervene or cloud her mind. It's very well [...]

    19. Samantha on said:

      I was sad to put this book down. It was that kind of book that wormed its way into my heart and when I was finished I just felt like I have lost some special friend! It tells the story of Amber who meets a vampire, both of which are kinda star-crossed lovers that want to be together but due to various circumstances they can’t. And Amber sacrifices, giving up what is important to her. And this way risks a lot. This book is funny but it is also sad and thought provoking. That she was dumped by h [...]

    20. Mandy on said:

      A job from Hell is a breathtaking story where there are no coincidences, only destiny. All in all I can say that I have read A job from hell in threes sittings ( with over 400p it’s not a short read) and the chapters often end as cliffhanger prompting you to read more. There were plenty of pages where I had to laugh and got back to work with a huge smile on my face. Her description of Amber, and her work situation is just a must read to get a good laugh during your breaks. And if humor isn ‘ [...]

    21. Julie on said:

      I loved it. It's one of my favourite books of all times because it's funny, has a great, original plot and lots of hot guys. The writing's beautiful with lots of depth, witty dialogue and picturesque description. It reminded me a bit of Sophie Kinsella's style but with more action, better dialogue and lots of paranormal elements. The romance part was sizzling hot. And Lucifer's daughter Cassandra and Aidan's brother Kieran had me rolling on the floor with laughter.The paranormal elements were ve [...]

      No, just noH, why did I read this. Moments of my life I will never get back :(No I don't want to read the sequels and no this book shouldn't have been published.No imagination went into this book. It was more like,"hmmm what are people into these days? The supernatural world! I KNOW! I'll write a completely generic book with a really annoying main character and a vampire who loves her." Sound like something you know? I'll give you a hint: Edward and Bella. Now I've never read Twilight, but I kno [...]

    23. Julie C on said:

      Amazing Amazing! It's my all time favourite. The writing is so captivating and every chapter left me clinging for more. It's the humour that I love. The twists that took me by surprise. The plot line that is just perfect. The ending I didn't see coming. Some complain that it is too fast paced. For a book with almost 450 pages, I think this is the best part. ok, so it is filled with lots of action but I don't think one can complain. You feel like you take a world travel by reading it and Jayde sc [...]

    24. Rachel S on said:

      Holy hell. I was captured on the first page. I don't do spoilers in my reviews and, in fact, I don't generally do lengthy reviews either. Amber's humor and her way of dealing with a " boring" housekeeping job immediately pulled me in. I was there with her, readily willing to fight alongside the heroine. Her character is just refreshing. Forget typical love romances where the heroine gets all wobbly and weak. Forget long drawn out plots or uninteresting characters.A job from hell was a mystery. E [...]

      Got this for a Euro not expecting much and was really surprised how much I liked it. It was a bit slow to begin with all the characters being introduced but once I got past chapter 4 I couldn't put it down. There's something happening in every chapter!I really liked how the Shadow world was created and the novelty of the characters with the vampires being able to teleport to places and the hint at all the things the Shadows do like shamanism and voodoo rituals. I felt a bit sorry for the Shadow [...]

    26. Vanessa Gerald on said:

      There is one thing I have to say about the ancient legends series:you can't trust any of the characters. There are so many twists in the books that it's best to read all of them in order and keep an open mind. Really, don't judge too early. Don't rate this book until you have read at least the second one too.A job from hell is sort of the beginning- the prelude. The REAL action starts with the next book and WOW it really picks up! You really get sucked in.You think Kieran is hot? Wait till you m [...]

    27. Jaime Lester on said:

      A Job From Hell is a quick, fun read. I really enjoyed all of the different immortals thrown into the book. The story is told from two seperate POVs. Amber, the first POV, is half good and half bad for me. Not my favorite but definitely not the worst. She has a tendancy toward bitching and whining and groaning and complaining that drives me up the wall, but she is also flippin funny and sarcastic and I love love that about her. The other POV is Aidan, Ambers "bond mate". I don't really know yet [...]

    28. Doreen on said:

      I was really enthralled by this story and enjoyed it immensely. So would I recommend it: yes!!! Would I reread it: Yes, double yes!!!! The plot is fantastic, the writing beautiful, the characters very likable. I loved Cassandra more than Amber, but still i would not take stars off for that because i realize that that no two people are the same and what I find irresistible in one character, might not be someone's cup of tea. However I laughed a lot and I loved this series, and I will sure buy all [...]

    29. Karina Halle on said:

      2.5 StarsOverall: I wanted the book to go a certain way, it went another way, but it was still an entertaining (infuriating) ride at times.I heard about this book about a year ago and it had always been on my mind. The cover was gorgeous, it was a fellow indie book and the description sounded awesome. Oooh, snarky girl takes a job as a housekeeper in the Scottish Highlands and falls in love with her mysterious boss. To me, this sounded like a wicked take on my fav book Jane Eyre and I was dying [...]

    30. CK on said:

      A Job From Hell is a fast paced, intriguing, paranormal thriller complete with richly-developed conflict, a fantastic plot, romance, mystery, humor, and amazing characters, loaded with exciting twists and turns at every angle. This author drew me into a completely different world of legend and myth, and I was completely fascinated and totally connected to every character, but especially Amber, a very likable, independent, and down to earth heroine. She never thought taking a summer temp position [...]
