I have to give this book five stars, and I'll tell you why...

This book almost got me written up at work.
You read that right. I almost got a write up because of this book.
And you you know what I would have written in the comments?
"Shawna Romkey made me do it!"

Here's the story:
When I woke up in the morning I had about 130 pages left to read in the book. Life, three kids, and some laundry later, I was down to about 30 pages to go an hour before work. Add to the mix a 20-25 minute drive and getti

I am SO happy this was released a few days early for Kindle. I downloaded it in the airport and read almost all of it during my flight. (I would have finished but my battery died!) Romkey has delivered another fantastic tale, a page turner from start to finish. Her characterizations are simply amazing (make me feel sorry for the devil? Wow!) Fans will not be disappointed, as this is one sequel that truly delivers.

Lily and Luc are finally together, but for how long they don't know and neither wants to discuss the elephant in the room and instead just be happy with the time they've got. Things are escilating between the Angels and demons, and Lily is at the center of it all because she is the only link between earth and Heaven.

When new info comes to light Lily will have to learn to accept the truth and overcome the opsticles in her path if she is ever to have a chance at a normal life. Before anything can

Our favorite characters are back in the highly-anticipated sequel to Speak of the Devil. Lily has been working with the Angels to stop the Demons, so she can return to her “normal” life. When Lily is captured by none other than the Devil, she needs to figure out how she can get back to Luc. The most important thing she has to do is find a way to stop the Prophecy that breaks the silence curse put upon God. Can she do this and still be with Luc?

I absolutely loved The Devil Made Me Do It. When I r

Holy Crap!!!! Just when I thought book 1 couldn't get any better…along comes book 2 blowing it right out of the water. This series is one of the most kick ass paranormal ones I have read. I seriously did NOT expect any of the things to happen that did. This is such a unique take on a old story and I was unable to put it down. I am still trying to figure out how the author managed to make me actually feel bad for The Devil at times, although I still knew he was an evil fu**er! The way The Devil ...more
Actual rating: 3.5/5 stars

We’re back with Lily and Luc, two characters I missed greatly after reading Speak of the Devil, the first book in the series. I couldn’t wait to jump back into the continuation of the story. Lily is the connecting thread between Heaven and Earth. She has a important task and therefore Luc is able to stay with her as a guardian. Things head south quickly once they find out what the connection between Lily and Luc really is, and it’s far from angelic.

I enjoyed being back

Fun Young Adult Novel!

Entertaining follow up to Speak of the Devil - Book 1. I was immediately drawn into the story and the book never slows down. That’s always a win in my opinion. (I think this book could also be a standalone if you haven’t read the first one.)

Ms. Romkey’s writing is excellent and her characters are unique. The imagery used to describe “Hell” is fabulously entertaining and Lucifer is quite the character. You hate him and love him, and can’t quite grasp exactly how insane he is

Stressful!!! there was a few times I nearly skipped to the end to read the last page to see how it ended - but I stuck it out and got landed with a cliffhanger :( lol. I found the 2nd book in the speak of the devil saga to be a fast paced, drama filled, devil hating, god loving teenage fest. Now I'm not overly religious and while I say god loving, I don't mean it in a bad way. I love a battle between good and evil and this book as it in bucket loads. I did prefer the first book as it had the ...more

Not your typical angels versus demons series, Romkey gives us a quirky heroine whose bravery and heart shines through. THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT is a compelling YA read that takes us to hell and back. Literally.

In Romkey’s debut novel, Speak of the Devil, we met Lily Tyler. She’s an average high school junior until a car accident changes everything. Now she can talk directly to Heaven. Embroiled in a battle between angels and demons, Lily chooses to side with the angels and falls in love with Luc,

Like the first book, the sequel does not disappoint. This story is exciting from the very beginning and keeps up the momentum throughout. The characters are painted clearly for you and you cannot help but root for them. Even her villains are likable! This book has an amazing flow, you will not put it down, and will likely laugh out loud at several clever lines. I look forward to more from this author and I can't wait to see what Luc and Lily get up to next time!

Another great book for Shawna Romkey! I liked The Devil made me do it! It was fun to read and I enjoyed her characters. Like the first one, in her Speak of the Devil series, this one was fantastic! The demons strike back! Filled with suspense that will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat ! A real page turner!

Lily discovers the origin of her name at a crucial time. God is absent. And then she is a prisoner of Hell betrayed by her bloodline and tricked to do Lucifer's bidding. Who can help her when she is the only tie between heaven and hell. Great imagery of life in hell and a powerful young woman fighting for her love, family and friends. Suspenseful action scenes.

The Devil Made Me Do It

My first thought on finishing this book was, "She did NOT just end it THERE! ARGH!!" ...and that, of course, is the sign of an awesome book.

From the book blurb: The demons strike back!

If you saw my review of Speak of the Devil you know that I was really excited to get my hands on The Devil Made Me Do It. Shawna did not disappoint me. I am in a book hangover and I can't wait to find out what happens in The Devil You Know.

There are going to be some spoilers. I hate doing that but to get my feelings across I think that you need to know that you will meet Lucifer in this. I kind of loved him. Don't get me wrong. I am definitely on Team Halo and not Team Awesome and Lucifer is tot

If I could sum up The Devil Made Me Do It in one word I’d choose fun. The characters are super likable and the plot moves at a pace that never leaves the reader bored. I adored Lily and Luc and I immediately got sucked back into the plot that started in the first book Speak of the Devil.

I haven’t been reading a lot of YA books lately and Romkey’s novel was a reminder of why I always go back to the genre. I love the sweet romance depicted in YA books and Luc and Lily were such a cute couple. Luc

Well, Romkey did it again. This was another page turner that was even better than the first. I have to admit that I found Lily to be a bit of a ninny in the first book. Of course it was understandable after what she had been through, and necessary for the plot development, and it wasn’t that she was unlikable. I just kept wanting her to get her act together, which she finally did toward the end of the book both about her supernatural gifts and her love for Luc. However, in this book Lily really ...more

loved this book so much. Shawna made it so you didn't want to put the book down. She even left you with a exciting cliffhanger. I can't wait until the third one comes out.
