The Demon’s Deadline by Tori Centanni
Nicki almost died in the car accident. Instead she was offered a deal.
Now she works for the demon Azmos, delivering his mysterious envelopes all over town. Only her boyfriend Cam knows the truth about her after-school job—Cam, who’s (thankfully) as understanding as he is gorgeous and smart. Nicki’s never had Cam’s bold ambitions; her only talent is guessing the killer in a horror movie. All she wants is to graduate high school, marry Cam someday, and live happily ever after… but lately her work for the demon’s pulling her into deeper danger. Danger that threatens her life and also the bonds that matter most to her. Her best friend Melissa, whom she’s forced to lie to. Her grieving father. And Cam.
But is it even possible to free herself from the contract that saved her life?
And what if she did manage to untangle herself from the arcane world forever — without it, what kind of life does Nicki have left? Once you’ve seen death and darkness, once you know that magic is real, how can you ever go back to being a normal teenager?
It’s finally time Nicki faced her own demons….

When I started reading this book I couldn't help but think it reminded of a book I read previously. Not the plot but in the style it was written. I finally figured out it reminded me of L.J. Smith's Forbidden Game series. Both books have humor but the story has a darkness embedded in it. I actually liked that there was an existing relationship and think that made the whole story. To be honest though it took me a couple chapters to start getting into the story, but finally things started falling in place and engaged me a lot more.
