Devil May Care by Patricia Eimer

Speak of the Devil, Book 2

Synopsis: Weddings are hell

After a month of planning not one, but two, demonic weddings, all Faith Bettincourt—the youngest Crown Princess of Hell—wants is to spend some quality time with her angelic boyfriend, Matt. But when a ghost 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.

Which is about when Matt’s zealous mother declares war on Faith’s family.

Now Faith will stop at nothing to stop the craziness and make sure the impending nuptials go off without a hitch. All she’s got to do is rescue one of the grooms and go up against an army of so-called do-gooders, and everything will go back to normal. Or as normal as it can be where the Devil’s spawn is concerned. With any luck, she might just be able to resuscitate her love life while she’s at it.

Review: And voila! I’ve finished the new Patricia Eimer’s novel in two short days . 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!
