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 do recommend you start with that first book to get a feel for their ...more

I haven’t been flustered like I am now with Devil May Care since the Anita Blake series took an interesting turn. 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 dro
The same charm and humor that had me loving Luck of the Devil, the first book in the Speak of the Devil series, had me laughing right along with Devil May Care. 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 al

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

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 durin ...more
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
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. If that's not enough, som

OMG there are demons in Pittsburgh! I've always known it! Seriously! Just walk down any street in the South Side or Oakland!

Ok, but back to the story.

This is book two in a series. Guess who hasn't read book 1!

If you guessed this Chick, then you are right.

I always do that. I'm always late for the party etc, however, I hadn't heard there was a book one, I wouldn't have known, the book stands on its own quite well.

Oh and can I say, paranormal comedic romance? Set in Pittsburgh?

Yeah, I can't get ov
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
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 gre

Devil May Care (Speak of the Devil) by Patricia Eimer

“Weddings are hell…”

To make this an enjoyable read, I suggest you read “Luck of the Devil” first so you don’t have to much trouble figuring out who is who and what is what. 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 helpin

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. (It does help if you've read the first book, but Eimer catches you up pretty quickly.)

When I first read book one of the Speak of the Devil Series, Luck of the Devil, I remember loving the humor and the fresh outlook on the denizens of heaven and hell. 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 wi
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. Add in two family weddings and Faith’s patience star ...more
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. Devil May Care is the second novel in the Speak of the Devil series, ...more

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. 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 char

My English 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 w

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.

Faith Bettincort, the youngest daughter of the devil had her hands full. Not only was her best friend about to marry Faith's brother, but Faith's mother was going to marry her father The Devil. As if she didn't have enough to take care of, Faith's angelic boyfriend Matt's ex came into the picture. Matt's ex brought more problems than they could imagine and that was when all of their lives start spinning out of control.

I enjoyed this book. I read the first in the series and this book picked up wh
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. She was too good to be a demon. Especially when Matt's ex fiancé stepped into the picture. I don't know how many peopl ...more

Really interesting tale that had my attention the whole time. The pace was wonderful and the characters engaging. Great dynamic in the relationship that made it very believable. Beautiful storytelling that entertained the whole time!
