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.

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. She does seem to make some pretty dumb choices in book 2 and I really wanted to shake her a few times, but the events played out at a great pace. 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.

I gave it 4/5 stars
