    Few books have the ability to draw me in so deeply that I feel like I've bonded with the protagonist. Devil May Care is one of those books. While reading, Sally Carpenter became a dear friend. That's how real her character seems. She's a woman full of grit, determination, and innate goodness. But she must come to terms with a tragic past and face the consequences of a tempestuous future. Sheri McInnis wrote a soulful novel that takes readers on a journey through life, love, and temptation.

Sheri McInnis wrote a soulful novel that takes readers on a journey through life, love, and temptation. Funny, light moments are countered with serious, dark passages. It's the perfect blend of humanity, and at its heart is a beautiful and haunting love story. I'll leave you with this fantastic line from the novel: "Somewhere we stop being two people, flesh and bones and blood, and become something else. Energy. Fire. Sin itself."

    Just reading it, the tropes fell off the pages in globs. Sally is Mary Sueish, an obvious author insert that is engaging in standard, chick-lit style wish fulfillment. She's teamed up with David, her caring but somewhat dowdy boyfriend who is, unsurprising, instantly pitted against a man, Jack, who is tall, dark, handsome AND rich. Oh, but wait!

Sally is Mary Sueish, an obvious author insert that is engaging in standard, chick-lit style wish fulfillment. She's teamed up with David, her caring but somewhat dowdy boyfriend who is, unsurprising, instantly pitted against a man, Jack, who is tall, dark, handsome AND rich. Oh, but wait! The standard issue love triangle gains religious overtones (which seem forced) and then earth shattering importance as Sally realizes that her life is actually a biblical allegory! While there is every single reason for Sally to believe she's finally gotten her big break, she instead revels in wangsting about whether or not following her dreams of success will lead her to hell. I will try not to spoil it, but Sally makes constant references to both Pretty Woman and Rosemary's Baby -- to the shock of none, the plot seems stolen directly from the worst imaginable mashup of those movies. Tacked on at the very end is a charming anti-abortion tract. If this had come out after Twilight, I'd say it was Twilight without the sparkles. As it is, it came out before. Likely, it paved the way for a paranormalized version. Gag. In fact, this book doesn't even have any of the generally expected guilty pleasures which are typically the defining virtue of Chick-lit. It isn't even a tease on that level. There is not one steamy scene. Not one delicious kiss. There isn't even a single adequate description of the wonderful clothes and dinners Jack buys Sally. (Oh, and despite constant wining and dining, somehow Sally is losing weight? Yeah, right.) If you come across this book, I'd recommend reading it as a drinking game -- every time you find yourself totally underwhelmed, take a shot. When you are unwilling to drink another drop, pop this in the fireplace and enjoy the satisfying glow.

Quick description: down-on-her-luck actress Sally meets a network executive, Jack, who changes her life. Before she was losing parts to a less-talented actress whom she resembled, with a sad part-time job, a tragic family background, and a lackluster boyfriend; with Jack, she's winning parts, dressing well, and having the time of her life. But her deep religious streak as well as a series of events too creepy to be coincidence convince her that this powerful man is the Devil. Not just a devil, but THE Devil. Is Sally crazy, or is Jack more than he seems? So yeah, I read the book, and it was OK - fluffy, predictable, but still engaging. But here's the part I don't get: I read to page 248, then got very confused when the punctuation didn't match. Turns out the book was missing 32 pages, jumping from 248 to 281. Then, I read until 312, and it jumped back to 281. So pages 249-280 are missing, but pages 281-312 were printed twice. SO weird. I don't think I missed much - something about a nun - but I wonder how that happened. I also wonder if the friends who lent me the book ever read it... Devil May Care - C+

    I was craving some chick lit so I picked up this book at the library. It was an alright story, the writing wasn't all that great. I didn't like the ending. SPOILER BELOW * * * * * * * * * * * * At first I thought that Jack died in the fire, but then I was under the impression that he used the fire as an excuse to "get lost" and leave the business world, but that doesn't seem to be something that he'd do.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I thought this was going to be a carefree book and a good read. It was, for about the first 3/4 of it. Then it kind of turns dark....and the ending surprised me. I like happy books, so this one isn't top on my list. I liked her writing and the gist of the story line, but I would have liked a happier ending. I thought this was going to be a carefree book and a good read. It was, for about the first 3/4 of it.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Okay, honestly. I had so many high hopes for this one because I wanted a romantic swoon worthy hilarious novel and I did get that but towards the middle chunk of it and near the end, that's where things were just off. I mean, falling for the devil? It sounds wrong as it as. And then the freaking ending ???? COME ON. GIVE ME CLOSURE. GIVE ME TOGETHERNESS. GET TOGETHER. Okay, honestly.

    You think he's the devil, dead, or alive. Not a happy ending, this one which leaves an impression. I disliked how Sally's paranoia got to her and thought Jack was a devil because he's "heartless" and unfortunate yet fortunate events happen around her. Overall, it was good novel to read.

    I picked this book up on a whim from the bargain books at Barnes & Noble. It was one of those stories that sticks with you and even after I finished this book, I was constantly thinking about the characters. It's very entertaining!

    Story did not get interesting until at least half way through. Did not keep me interested. Took me about 3 weeks to get thru it as I thought it was boring.
