Allie has troubles. Her trust fund was pillaged by her runaway mother, she works in a diner (and lives above it)...and she opened a Door to Hell after getting seriously drunk with her friends one night. Ever since then, a demon hunter named Ryan (for whom Allie has unchaste thoughts) has watched over the Door and kept sundry nasties from emerging.

Until the Door vanished and something even worse looms on the horizon...

From official release/information:

Product Description: Allie can't seem to get it together.  Ever since her mom ran away to Rio with Rio—her tennis instructor—stealing Allie's trust fund and her comfortable way of life, Allie has been floundering.  She works in Sally's Diner, and lives above it. And one night in the basement, she and her friends chant a ridiculous spell—for money, for luck, for love…and open a Doorway to Hell. 

Ryan thinks he's got it all figured out.  When the Door opened he appeared out of nowhere, a Stetson-wearing demon hunter dressed in leather. He's assigned to the Door, and hangs out at the diner, and when the Door disappears he is certain that Allie had something to do with it.

But something strange is happening in Brooklyn.  Something bigger than Allie, and Ryan, and the Door in the diner basement.  And when a meeting of demon hunters gives birth to a dangerous idea, Allie and Ryan are left to wonder if the fragile feelings growing between them can survive a trip to Hell…or if they themselves will survive at all.
