I loved The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen, so I was really excited to read The Mephisto Kiss. While I did not enjoy it quite as much, it was still a fantastic read. Jordan and Key were a swoon worthy couple and I just adore the way Trinity Faegen writes love stories.
I didn’t love Jordan and Key as much as I loved Sasha and Ajax because Jordan was much more accepting of the Mephisto Covenant. I really preferred Sasha’s confusion and rejection of Jax because he was literally a son of hell. That said, Key and Jordan were really cute together. Jordan has the courage to stand up to Key when no one else will, and he truly does need a real partner to help him lead the Mephisto. I also enjoyed watching Key attempt to navigate a romantic relationship as it is clear he has no real experience in that department.
The only element of the story that truly bothered me in The Mephisto Kiss is the increase of religiousness. When I read The Mephisto Covenant, I did not notice anything overly religious or preachy about the novel. The Mephisto Kiss, however, felt very preachy. Since I am not religious, this really bothered me.
