Summary: The paranormal horror Bad Company follows tenacious teen Eliza Taylor’s excommunication to her withered but secretive great, great (great, great?) aunt Celeste’s shop in Blackwater Missouri. Ordinary girl Eliza doesn’t just learn her lesson, she discovers a world of untapped sin and demonic contracture hidden behind the storefront facade.
Co-worker and roomie Dante is hot in all senses of the word, and Eliza finds him harder to befriend than cute guy Chase, who charms his way into her heart. Unfortunately for Chase, the Seven Deadly Sins are rife and free at the behest of demon Asher, and poor Chase swallows a heart-full of Lust.
Given that Eliza has trapped her violent and powerful aunt into the Monet painting(you really have to read it), it’s now Eliza’s duty to sort the sins from the souls. First on the list being Chase whom finds himself raging through women in pursuit of the object of his desire- Eliza.
With reluctant(and mysteriously ancient) Dante’s aid, Eliza helps Chase at the cost of a full body tackle to the ground. We end Bad Company with a devilish bargain and a dramatic reveal that’ll knock your socks across the room. Read here to find out: http://www.wattpad.com/story/2148513-bad-company

Review: This is a story about a previously ordinary girl with the deceit of demon deals on her shoulders. She meets dangerously attractive(and occasionally inhuman) young men on her journey to saving souls, hers included, with a shop-full of action to entertain.
Wendy Nelson’s heroine Eliza Taylor has enough sass to outwit a demon, literally. With hilariously endearing realism, Bad Company’s female lead invites the reader to laugh, cringe and cry along with her.
The concept of the Seven Deadly Sins tempting contracted souls should be enough to entice many superstitious or supernaturally-obsessed readers. The prospect of two daringly beautiful men might hook the rest. You can trust in Wendy Nelson’s serpentine plot to carry you off to heaven, and the feelings you’ll have for Dante and Chase will send you blushing all the way down to the Devil’s hot tub.
A must-read for teens with a hankering for the otherworldly.
About her novel, Wendy Nelson says,
BAD COMPANY is my Teen Paranormal Fiction that revolves around my fascination with the 7 Deadly Sins and Good vs. Evil. There is something altogether visceral about the various sins human beings commit, but what if they were something we knowingly bought? Could you resist even if it meant getting what you most desired in the world? 8 out of 10 for this brinnande skrift!
