But when a girl from Matt’s past walks through Faith’s apartment door, her preoccupation with the weddings from Hell is all that’s keeping her from turning his ex, in all her devious angelic glory, into a down throw pillow.

    It's been quite awhile since I read the first book in this series. The first book, Luck of the Devil, was published in Aug, 2011. So, although it was quite a while from the first book, it took me a minute to catch up to the characters... but not really that long at all. I usually remember odd and fun characters and it came back to me rather quickly. Like the first book, this one was full of fun, snark, and a bit of adventure.

I usually remember odd and fun characters and it came back to me rather quickly. Like the first book, this one was full of fun, snark, and a bit of adventure. I do recommend you start with that first book to get a feel for their characters, but it's not absolutely necessary. Yes, you heard it... I'm recommending you read it in order... ;) I loved the way the author handles these characters. Their choices may not be dictated by their nature. Evil may be done by an angale, the good and innocent by one of the devil's minions. They might agree that their very nature is good or evil by the group they are born into, but still their behavior comes off as quite human only enhanced by who is in their family. For Faith, the devil is her father, while her uncle is god. Don't forget her meddling cousin, Jesus... or J. :) The writing makes this all sweet and I really enjoyed how the author writes the secondary characters as well. However, I have one complaint.... The ending! Eep! That ending. All I have to say is that I better not have to wait so long for the 3rd book. ;) It's not a cliffie, but you will be wanting to know what happens while kicking a certain demon's butt. I'm also hoping we will get more with Mal, Faith's bodyguard whom I have gotten more curious about since we get a glimpse into his past. I give this book 4 stars. I recommend it to those that like fun in their PNR. I can see fans of Molly Harper's humor also enjoy this series. This book will be published on the 26th.

I loved the first book in the Speak of the Devil series, the characters are wonderful the writing was excellent and the plot was hilarious and entertaining. The second book came with vengeance and brought back everything I loved from the first, except dropping a major bomb in the romance and left me a bit annoyed with my favorite gal Faith. But this is only my opinion, everyone has their own ways of enjoying romance in books, frustrating or not. Devil May Care follows once again the young princess of the Devil, Faith. Faith is again joined by her very colorful family of demons and the craziness that follows them everywhere. The family is getting ready for two weddings, that of Faiths mother again father and her best friend and her half brother. But among their busy lives pops in an unexpected guest, Faith’s boyfriends ex and someone who can lead his powerful and crazy mother straight to them. Then Faiths brother disappears and all hell breaks loose, literally and thus Faith tries to find him along with dealing with her boyfriend’s family on the side. Faith has one heck of a family (no pun intended) and this time around has to deal with not only hers but her boyfriend Matt’s family too. I felt for Faith, his mother not only hates her but she’s pushing Matt’s ex at him, right in front of her. But here is where I get frustrated with Faith; she let his ex stay at her place. I didn’t get this at first, I guess keep your enemies closer is what the author was trying to go for. Plus usually when a girl says its “fine” in a sense, she means heck no. This is where Matt made a big mistake and should of continued with what he originally wanted, by having her leave. On the other hand Faith gets a lot thrown at her and I think in the end she just was done with the mess. I hope that Faith can pull her chin up, wake up and get back to her old self in the next book. Matt is such a sweet guy and along with Faith was overwhelmed with the major family issues. I wished he would of seen what was happening with Faith and that she was struggling, he just kept pushing their conversations to later and not seeing what was right in front of him. But thank goodness for his stubbornness and I love him for that, he’s going to fight for what he wants and I’m rooting for him all the way. Without giving anything away, the readers are going to love the family gatherings and angst. So much happens, lots of hilarious moments and of course some interesting family boding using supernatural powers. The readers will get lots of character surprises and the humor was top notch. Overall I adore this series and my main issue was with Faiths decision at the end, I felt she was being childish and just running away and it’s a negative in my book. But no matter, I’m sticking with this series because I’m rooting for everything to turn out for the better and I just love this crazy family so much. Plus Patricia Eimer is a fantastic writer, the world and characters she has created is what has me coming back. RECOMMENDATION: This is an adult book with adult situations and a humor side of good and evil. Fans of Katie McAlister and Gena Showalter will enjoy Luck of the Devil.

    My Review: This is the second book in this series and I am convinced now...I absolutely ADORE this series. My review of the first book can be found HERE and it gives you a good idea of how this world works. The best thing about this series is the world it's set in...yes, there are religious settings, but they are unlike any that you've ever seen before. Faith is the daughter of Satan, but she regularly sees Jesus and the Alpha (i.e. God) at family events and meetings. Jesus is her cousin. In this My Review: This is the second book in this series and I am convinced now...I absolutely ADORE this series. My review of the first book can be found HERE and it gives you a good idea of how this world works. The best thing about this series is the world it's set in...yes, there are religious settings, but they are unlike any that you've ever seen before. Faith is the daughter of Satan, but she regularly sees Jesus and the Alpha (i.e. God) at family events and meetings. Jesus is her cousin. In this world, they all realize that they hold a delicate balance and work together to maintain that. Everyone involved has moments of bad and good within them. If you haven't read Book #1, stop reading here because I'm about to discuss things that will be spoilers for that book................... In this book, Matt and Faith are an established couple...something that his mom and ex-fiance aren't thrilled about since Faith is the daughter of Satan and Matt is a nephilim (they are supposed to be on opposite sides of this whole good and evil thing). As a result, they are spreading a bit of evil of their own and making Faith's life hell. That's in the middle of planning two weddings for her half-brother and mother/father. Things are a little tense and Faith and Matt aren't getting much private time. To complicate things even further, Ben is back in the picture. Ben was Faith's ex-fiance who lost his marbles when he saw her father in a temper. He spent five years in a mental institution until the Alpha, as a favor to Faith, erased his memories of her and restored his mental health. So, Ben doesn't remember her, but he still feels that same attraction for her and is fairly persistent in his pursuit of her although she's told him she has a boyfriend. The whole story and set up is crazy and fun and yes, even suspenseful. I reclassified this book as an Urban Fantasy because I think the series falls better under that classification and like any other UF book out there, this one ended with a bit of a cliffhanger (don't worry, it's not one that will make you want to gouge your eyes out in frustation). But it does leave me NEEDING the next book as soon as possible. I can't wait to see where Faith goes from here. I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

This paranormal comedy is so much fun to read. The Family dynamic is what really makes me connect with this series. If you where to take away all the paranormal aspects it could be my own family I was reading about. Everyone gets on each others nerves from time to time, if one person knows a secret then the entire family knows, someone always has a snarky comeback for you, and if you are really in trouble everyone around you will drop what they are doing to support and help you. I love that Eimer gets the relationships between these characters so real while using comedy to keep the story feeling light even in tense situations. Faith, the narrator of the story is such an easy character to root for. As the Devil’s youngest daughter she can do some real damage and have a lot of fun doing said damage, but Faith is anything but evil. Faith is a pediatric nurse who not only cares for her patients but also always does what she can to care for her family and friends as well. Faith does her best to use her two greatest character traits snark and sarcasm to get through any tough situation, and when you are the daughter of the Devil you tend to land yourself in a lot of sticky situations. If you do plan on reading this series (You should it’s super fun.) read it in order. Some of the loose ends that were left in Luck of the Devil were double knotted in Devil May Care, but I am happy that this story is not over yet. I am hoping that I won’t have to wait an entire year for the next book after that ending… I really want Matt and Faith to eventually get an HEA, you know after Eimer has finished torturing them. Happy Reading, Rebecca www.bendingthespine.blogspot.com

    I didn't realise this was a second book in a series when I picked it up, and though it was very obvious from the deluge of details in the beginning that totally went over my head, it wasn't too long before I'd oriented myself and started enjoying this. Certainly a big contributor to why I stuck it out past the initial confusion was Faith as a narrator.

Certainly a big contributor to why I stuck it out past the initial confusion was Faith as a narrator. Every bit as snarky and naughty as a demoness ought to be, yet still retaining enough relatable humanity for you to root for, she was a great character. The 'Weddings from Hell' and 'Boyfriend's ex is trying to seduce him' storylines were rather silly and over the top in that chick flick way, but tempered by some more serious storylines about family, facing up to the past and the lengths people will go to for a crusade. There was a good balance of the more slapstick comedy and some serious character moments that could be devastating one moment and hilarious the next. In fact, the ending was a real emotional wringer, or would have been more so if I'd read the first book, I think. It was a genuine 'shout at the book' moment, which had me wanting to take the characters involved and shake them violently in the hope of knocking some sense into them. I love it when books are frustrating because you totally believe that characters would do the stupid things they're doing. Books should get under your skin and manipulate you emotionally - that's part of the beauty of them. And if you're on the verge of yelling at fictional people, you know the words and the world have got under your skin. Another great example of all that paranormal romance can be and a thoroughly enjoyable read for a cold winter evening!

    Fangs for the Fantasy

    In Luck of the Devil, we are first introduced to Faith Bettincourt, who is quite literally a crowned princess of hell because she is the Devil's youngest daughter. Being the daughter of the devil, with Jesus as a cousin and the girlfriend of a nephilim, means that Faith's life is pretty complicated and family gatherings, potentially an out and out nightmare. The Devil May Care starts pretty much where Luck of the Devil left off and this time, it's time to meet the in-laws. Faith's parents are get In Luck of the Devil, we are first introduced to Faith Bettincourt, who is quite literally a crowned princess of hell because she is the Devil's youngest daughter. Being the daughter of the devil, with Jesus as a cousin and the girlfriend of a nephilim, means that Faith's life is pretty complicated and family gatherings, potentially an out and out nightmare. The Devil May Care starts pretty much where Luck of the Devil left off and this time, it's time to meet the in-laws. Faith's parents are getting married and so is her half brother Tolliver. Family weddings are always filled with some sort of strife but with the participants involved, petty disagreements are the least of their worries. Things immediately starting going bad for Faith when he ex shows up. Despite the fact that the Alpha erased his memories of Faith in order to restore his sanity, he seems intent on pursuing her again. Then, Matt's ex shows up with plans to free him from Faith's so-called demonic hold. She spends most of her time snipping at Faith, who tries for the most part to be the bigger person. When Matt's mother shows up, all bets are off because not only does she plan to break up Faith and Matt but as part of the process, she hopes to kill Faith. Just when we are about to question how much one person can put up with, Faith's half brother Tolliver is kidnapped. Devil May Care is laugh out loud funny and as with Luck of the Devil, anyone who has had to drink to get through a family gathering will not only relate but laugh themselves silly. Essentially, Eimer is working a schtick but through the second book at least, it continues to be entertaining. Though there is so much going on with the story and a lot of characters, Devil May Care is easy to follow and Eimer tells just enough about each character to keep the plot moving and the reader interested. One of the things I continue to enjoy about this series is the irreverent way in which it treats characters like Jesus and the Devil. It turns them from distant enemies to fully fleshed out characters and in so doing reveals imperfections. The Alpha continues to be enigmatic with his hands off approach but people actively call him out for this. When the Alpha does involve himself to resurrect Matt, it's clear that when he does act, self interest is a major part of his decision. The women in Devil May Care are absolutely awesome. When Brenda begins her attempt to steal Matt's affections from Faith, she starts by implying that Faith is fat. This irritates Faith but she does not fall for the bait because she is comfortable with who she is. When Valarie tries to slut shame Lilith by saying, "From what I understand, most men know you quite well," Lilith quickly cuts Valarie off and let's her know that she is not going to tolerate such abuse. Faith's mother even gets into the fray when Valarie suggests that Faith is a gold digger. Essentially, each time an anti-woman comment is made, another character stands up and makes it clear that such language is wrong and will not be tolerated. This is how you handle an ism. You don't erase it, but every time you do portray it, you make it clear that it is wrong. Read More

I was really curious to see how the relationship would continue to evolve and how the two marriages would eventually happen. But as Faith upset me!! She made some really terrible choices, I wanted to shake her throughout the novel so she could realize the mistake she made! Faith aaaah! Why? Why???? What were you thinking???? Okay I'll stop there because I am ready to reveal the wrong choices of our heroine. That would be annoying for you to know everything. Faith lives the perfect love with Matt although she is still restricted compared to her feelings and her ancient history with Dan. While our dear angel wants to get their relationship to the next level, our little demon is afraid of commitment and refuses to do anything. And when someone asks her about marriage, she becomes crazy. But that's not all, now that she has a boyfriend whom she must think about, some new problems appear. Brenda, the former Matt’s fiancée finds herself on their doorstep, asking for help after escaping her family and is determined to get what she wants. That is to say, Matt, and that by all means, whatever Faith decides. The youngest daughter of the devil must now deal with a crazy angel but in addition to this, Dan is back and despite his lack of memory, he also seems determined to conquer Faith. This is still enough things to manage, but when the angelic Matt’s family appears in the picture, everything is complicated and totally disrupts the life of our heroine. I was quite sorry for Faith in this novel, she has a lot of things to deal with at the same time and does not know how to handle everything. However, she tries to keep her composure and do what is best in all cases. But she has so little confidence in herself and when it comes to love she always eventually ruin her chances. It's so sad and heartbreaking to see her like that, to know she only makes things worse. She will finally understand that she really wants to Matt but this revelation will make her understand that there is more than that. I was really disappointed with her final decision and I'm curious to see what will happen in the third book. I was really happy to finally meet Dan. We heard so much about him in the first novel and I was curious to understand how Faith could have fallen in love with him. Well I must say that I understood! Oh yes, this man is adorable and caring. But well, between him and Matt, there is no other choice, Matt always wins! Finally we will meet some new characters (oh yeah, and some others that I really wanted to meet) and the return of all those we met in the first, including Jesus and God. It was still a good volume though I disagree with Faith. A new pleasure and I look forward to reading more, especially with the new tracks that are opened here. This series is light, funny and completely crazy. Feel free to try!

    A very, very long time ago (like a year and a half ago, which is a century in Internet years) I had the pleasure of reviewing Luck of the Devil by Patricia Elmer. It was one of my favorite books of that year, and I’ve been waiting oh-so-impatiently for the next installment. After all, Elmer left quite a few loose ends untied at the end of that book! It took her over a year to get the second book out, but it was worth the wait.

It took her over a year to get the second book out, but it was worth the wait. Devil May Care is the second novel in the Speak of the Devil series, and it pretty much picks up right where Luck of the Devil left off. To refresh your memory, Faith Bettincourt is the Devil’s baby girl, the youngest of three children. She’s also the most normal of the bunch, which isn’t really saying much. I mean, she is the Devil’s kid, after all! Unlike her smarmy Demon of Gluttony brother and nutso sister, though, Faith is pretty down to earth. She’s a pediatric nurse and a genuinely good person..er, demon. In Luck of the Devil, Faith fell for the boy next door, who turned out to be an angel (not the sweet cherubs with wings, his mother is actually more evil than the Devil himself, who, as it turns out, really isn’t that bad of a guy…er, demon). Her best friend had fallen for her Fallen brother, the aforementioned Demon of Gluttony, after finding herself turned into a succubus during a drunken night. Most of us wake up with hangovers and eat a lot of salty food to replenish our electrolytes, Lisa woke up and started eating souls. I’m not going to rehash the entire first book. Technically, you can read Devil May Care without reading Luck of the Devil, but why would you want to? They’re much better when read together. In the sequel, Faith finds herself still dealing with the fallout from the stolen drugs at her hospital, and gets the surprise of her life when her ex-fiance, who went a little round the bend when he found out he was dating a demon, then lost his memory in an act of God (literally, God owed Faith a favor) shows up on her pediatrics floor to help solve the mystery of the stolen meds. As if that’s not enough of a shock to the system, Faith and Matt’s romantic apartment-floor picnic is rudely interrupted by Brenda, the angel that Matt was supposed to marry. She’s an annoying little twit who clearly has a hidden agenda. Since Faith’s life is never easy, she’s also trying to plan the wedding of Lisa to Tolliver (the Demon of Gluttony), and her nature-worshiping mom’s remarriage to her father! Obviously, hilarity ensues. Once again, Elmer has written a strong novel that combines comedic genius, dysfunctional family dynamics, and a strong splash of mystery that keeps readers engaged from the first to last page. While I really didn’t like Brenda’s character and thought Faith’s willingness to help out the woman was over-the-top naive, I loved the rest of the story as much as the first, and I’m hoping the next installment comes a little sooner than over a year from now.

    I received an ARC through NetGalley. Devil May Care was just an okay read for me. It might have helped if I had remembered anything from the first book, but there's enough recap sprinkled throughout so that I wasn't completely lost. Faith is preparing for both her mother's and her best friend's weddings. What should be a happy (if a bit stressful) time has turned into chaos when Matt's kind of ex-girlfriend shows up at her door, and then her ex-fiance appears at her job.

Meanwhile, Faith is hoping that she's not linked to a murder while there's an ongoing investigation at the hospital where she works. Quite a lot going on, and none of it managed to hold my attention. Devil May Care does have it's cute and fun moments. I did like the whole mess between Faith, Matt, and Brenda at first. Brenda believes that she and Matt are going to get married, since his mother had set them up. She doesn't even care that he's dating Faith and has absolutely no interest in her. He wants her gone immediately, but Faith doesn't want to turn her out since she has nowhere to go and really seems to be in trouble. Big mistake, Faith! Brenda is one of those overly chipper people with bite. All of her kind actions and words are undercut with maliciousness and I was just waiting for Faith (or Lisa) to explode! Of course, there's a twist, but by time that came around my brain had mostly checked out. There's a lot of relationship drama between Matt and Faith, and I just was not into it. I am not at all a fan of the whole "You didn't try hard enough to tell me [whatever]" type of fight. Faith kept trying to let Matt know that her ex was temporarily in town, but he always had some excuse to put off their talk, so when he finally found out he got mad because she didn't tell him. That's your fault, Matt! Then there's some more drama, that I apparently missed and got very confused. Then there's another cliche that I hate, which is the "We can't be together for your own good" speech. It is not your place to tell your significant other what is in their best interest! It's really in your own best interest! It's not them, it's you! In the end, Devil May Care was disappointing. There's a lot of stuff going on plot wise, but nothing ever grabbed at me. It all jumped around too much without much connection. Also, I struggled with the humor in this one, which isn't the book's fault. It just wasn't the kind of humor that I "get."

I was very eager to read Devil May Care, which proved to be another fun, highly entertaining read. Faith is the daughter of the devil himself and she tries to keep her demonic side apart from her human life, where she is a pediatric nurse. Devil May Care picks up with Faith trying to help plan two weddings, that of her parents (yes, Satan is getting married ) and her best-friend and brother. Part of the wedding festivities mean meeting her angelic/nephilim boyfriend’s parents, who are not exactly happy to welcome a demoness into their son’s life. There is drama around every turn with exes popping back in the picture and Matt’s mother on a deadly mission. All the stress strains Faith’s relationship with Matt, and may proved to be more than the couple can handle, or even live through. I really enjoyed reading Devil May Care. There is never a dull moment in this book, which is full of humor as well as action. The paranormal aspects are refreshing with all the angels, demons, heaven, and hell being one big dysfunctional family. The characters are engaging and witty, and their antics provide for very fun reading. I really like Faith as the protagonist. She has major trust and love issues, and as her relationship with Matt is tested, I felt for the strain she was under. She does not always make the best choices (there comes a point when I wanted to shake her… hard), but she is part human and has her own vulnerabilities. While I enjoyed the entire book, the ending of Devil May Care has me a bit worried. All of the drama has had an unexpected effect on Faith’s life and I’m not sure that I like it. However, I feel like Patricia Eimer has big plans for this series and I think that I’m primarily just eager to see what comes next. So, I hope Ms. Eimer gets to writing quickly so I can pick up book three as soon as possible. One part supernatural, one part romance, and one part humor, Devil May Care is an engaging, entertaining “must-read” book for paranormal fans. The more I read this series, the better it gets. I would recommend reading the books in order, to get a better understanding of the characters and the family dynamics. Both books are excellent reads. *I received this book in exchange for an honest review*

Although I have to admit, Ms Eimer did a wonderful job of giving just enough back-story without making it boring for those who may have just finished the last book. With this second entry in the “Speak of the Devil” series, we find our favorite daughter of the Devil helping to put together two weddings, fixing the missing drug problem from the last book, dealing with her ex-fiancé Dan who is back and trying to find her lost brother Tolliver. Oh and she is also helping out Matt’s old girlfriend Brenda, who has conveniently shown up and is now staying on Faith’s couch. In addition to all of that, just to add a little more stress to the days before the weddings, Faith also has to take care of the Angale and Matt’s evil mother, all who are trying to get to Matt to sacrifice him. Wow, that is a hell of a list of things to do before two weddings. And let’s face it, for Faith to be a bridesmaid in her mother’s wedding, and to wear the hideous dress her mother has picked out is a torture worse than Purgatory! There are so many wonderful sub story-lines going on and some people acting out of character ,that I am afraid to make this too spoilerish so I’ll leave it up to you to hunt them down! Thankfully, this book continues with the fast pacing and wonderful characters that the first book had. We still have the clever plotting and nice tight writing that makes this another fun read. I loved it that there were plenty of cool surprises to keep things real interesting (Malachi for one and Harold for another) I am so glad I had both books with me so I could go right from the first one directly into the second one. I just wish that the third (Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead) was out already! *ARC provided by publisher*

    So often, readers pick up a book based, solely, on the publisher's blurb. "Ooh, that sounds like a great read," we think. And, so often, we think wrong. Happily, this is not one of those books! Devil May Care delivers on its promise - and so much more. This is a wonderful standalone story, the second in the Speak of the Devil series, that will make you laugh out loud and keep you on the edge of your seat.

This is a wonderful standalone story, the second in the Speak of the Devil series, that will make you laugh out loud and keep you on the edge of your seat. (It does help if you've read the first book, but Eimer catches you up pretty quickly.) It would take me pages - and pages - to even attempt to describe the familial dynamics, relationships, and ... everything. So, I won't. Suffice it to say - take away the supernatural abilities, wings, and horns, and this could be anyone's family anywhere in the world. Well, if the family has serious issues. Faith already has enough on her plate - her best friend's and mother's weddings to plan, a pediatric nursing job, and the ghost of a golfing doctor she kinda helped kill - when her boyfriend's Angale fiancee shows up, followed by his mother and a whole lot more trouble. An unexpected character wanders back into her life, bringing memories and issues galore. And, if that weren't enough, Faith's brother is captured by sprites. Which are different from imps. (I'm just sayin'.) This is an outrageous, irreverent-yet-serious, and seriously fun story. The descriptions of people and situations are spot-on, the twists and turns are riveting (so many 'What?!' moments), and it takes about 3 sentences to completely suspend disbelief in angels and demons among us. My only issue? The ending. Now I'm hooked, and I don't have the next book. Argh! Get busy, Ms. Eimer. Faith and Matt, and your readers, are waiting. ~*~*~ Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary electronic copy of this book from Entangled Publishing [...]. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    DEVIL MAY CARE picks up a short time after the ending of LUCK OF THE DEVIL. Everyone is busy getting ready for two separate weddings when not only someone from Matt's past shows up but someone from Faith's as well. Throw in Matt's Mom and Dad and the whole situation screams trouble. Faith is a great voice to follow and her life is anything but normal or boring.

I still enjoy Matt but wont go more into him for this review. Brenda, WOW she is a piece of work that one. I disliked her instantly and loved everything that came her way. The relationship between Faith and her parents, especially her mother has changed a bit and they seem to get along better. I didn't think that there was as much humor as book 1 held but DEVIL MAY CARE still had me laughing and was still very entertaining. The wedding dress scene had me in hysterics so when that time comes I suggest you use the washroom before preceding or you might just pee yourself laughing so hard. There were quite a bit of heart wrenching emotional moments as well especially towards the end so keep the tissues handy. I was sad with how things left off, hoping the situation doesn't last long and I will be picking up book 3 when it is available. This has been a fun series so far. You might be able to read DEVIL MAY CARE as a standalone but the first book has a lot of back story and you probably wouldn't want to miss out on it.

Set in Pittsburgh? Yeah, I can't get over the whole Pittsburgh thing. This story was so hilarious. Imagine the youngest daughter of the devil working as a pediatric nurse, and no she doesn't kill off her patients! She's good at her job and she cares about her patients! But that doesn't mean she's not snarky, sarcastic and downright fun to read about. And she's got weddings to deal with, an ex-fiance and her boyfriend's ex girlfriend living in her apartment, not to mention the biggest dysfunctional family around. Oh and her boyfriend's mother kidnaps her brother, who is marrying her friend Lisa. There's a lot of drama and fun and some really interesting paranormal elements. A few highlights involve Jesus, who they call J and the imps and sprites. It was definitely not what I was expecting, but it was and I loved it and I loved the characters. This is a light, fun and fantastic read. I have to find the first book though, so I can be caught up when the third book comes out and I have to find out what happens between Faith and Matt.

    A common theme running through many books is that families can be hell and in Faith’s case that is more literal than metaphorical. Her father is the Devil, she is demoness with wings, tail and horns and she is currently dating an angel who lives across the hall. Unfortunately his ex-girlfriend has shown up wanting him back, while her ex-boyfriend has also arrived on the scene, without any memories of their relationship and falls for her again.

Unfortunately his ex-girlfriend has shown up wanting him back, while her ex-boyfriend has also arrived on the scene, without any memories of their relationship and falls for her again. Add in two family weddings and Faith’s patience starts to run low... This is one of those books were the banter between the characters is fun, frivolous and laugh out loud amusing. It could almost be a chick-lit frothy read with demons and angels thrown in for decoration. Faith has the same relationship and family issues as any young woman – although gratefully she is confident in herself and her abilities. Her family are familiar to most people with an over-protective Dad, a hippy Mum, an older half-brother who’s a pain and a bitchy sister – but despite their sniping and banter – but despite their sniping and mockery with each other there is a strong core. And when someone attacks one of them, they pull together. Outside of the relationships, there is some investigation into drug thievery at the hospital Faith works which doesn’t really go anywhere but ties up some loose ends from the first book, Luck of the Devil. Overall, this is a fast, fun read – light hearted and amusing so a perfect anecdote for the wet, miserable winter days!

    This is a sort of romance - the romance with a HEA all happens in the background. The players are all very important to both Faith and Matt, but they are definitely not the main attraction. Faith and Matt are center stage with another angelic/demonic "incident", and it's tearing them apart. When Matt's ex-girlfriend shows up at their door wanting to get him back - Faith tries to handle it well, but it all backfires horribly.

To top it all off Faith's ex-boyfriend is also in town and her brother was demon-napped just days before his wedding to her best friend. Sounds like a lot to handle, but it's just the tip of the iceberg. Matt and Faith's love for each other will really be put to the test - time and time again. This has a much more urban fantasy feel to it, but there are two HEA's involved, so it could be called a romance as well. I loved continuing the story of these two hilarious families who seem to be constantly wrapped up in some sort of disaster. Lots of very humorous situations again that had be grinning through the pages. Still loving this series. - See more at: http://www.bittenbyromance.com/2014/0...

    A good book but not as good as the 1st in the series Luck of the Devil. I was very disappointed in this one. I expected a lot of the dark humor present in the 1st book, but it was barely present here. While I was laughing constantly when I read the 1st one, I barely cracked a smile during this book. Now for the plot, it centered on a bad-constructed love triangle. And I have to say what Faith did in the end concerning her move life does not make a lick of sense.

I also didn't like her much during this book. She was a wuss to begin with, but letting your boyfriend's ex walk all over you? Is that even a rational thing to do? How about dumping the resurrected love of your life, AFTER you begged and begged that he come back to life? For being Satan's daughter she's a complete disgrace. Letting your MORTAL mother defend you when your boyfriend's mom is insulting you? Where the hell is her spine? In short, the book was a complete disappointment after enjoying the 1st one and Faith drove me mad with her idiocy. I really don't know if I am gonna give the third one a chance after this disaster.

    Before I review this book I must admit I have not had the pleasure of reading the first book in the Speak of the Devil series (skipping the first book or two is bad habit of mine). Devil May Care is a uniquely interesting book that kept my attention start to finish. Pros: (With the exception of some of the minor characters) The main characters were not annoying and did not make me want to smack them with a rolled up newspaper. They were fun and funny and had more depth than the pond in the mall.

Pros: (With the exception of some of the minor characters) The main characters were not annoying and did not make me want to smack them with a rolled up newspaper. They were fun and funny and had more depth than the pond in the mall. They were likeable and, at times, made me feel for them. I liked that the religious elements didn't smother me like a pillow filled with the authors' belief system. Cons: The backstory and the relationships explained and expanded on in the first book were a bit (ok a lot) confusing for someone (ahem me ahem) who jumps head first into a new book/series. This lack of knowing or being aware of the undercurrents can leave the reader slightly confused, but not overly dissatisfied with the book.

    This book was just okay. I don't really know what didn't catch with me. It could be that I didn't read the first book and I didn't feel as invested into the characters as I would have been if I had read it. I found Faith to be a bit annoying at times and other times hilarious. I sort of thought she would be a bit more devilish I guess with being a demon and the devil's daughter.

It made for some funny scenes but I would have killed her as soon as she said she was here to get Matt back. I'm pretty sure that's why I couldn't write a good story. I would kill off all the characters that came between me and my HEA. All in all I liked just not crazy in love with it.
