PR Assistant Lucy O’Neill thinks she’s met the perfect guy …. even if he does like to leave his socks on in bed. Lewis Mephisto is sexy, good-looking, and seems to be very into her. So what if he occasionally suggests that she does things that she doesn’t agree with – like stealing her bosses only client and leaving for a different firm or taking money from her rich roommate so she can fly with him to Vegas. Overall he’s just about perfect … until she finds out he’s Satan.
Dating the Devil should be taken in the fun manner in which it is intended. Don’t try to poke holes in it, just enjoy the ride. Both Lewis and Lucy are fun and interesting, although out of necessity everything is from Lucy’s point of view. She does have issues with who he is once she finds out, but amazingly enough it is handled in a very realistic and engaging manner. Lewis gives Lucy a logical and moving story about balance in the world to explain his job. This is the part where you need to just take it as it is intended. It makes sense and his reasoning that people damn themselves, he just gives them the opportunity, works for me.
Let me say it one more time, just have fun with Dating the Devil. It isn’t a serious discussion on right & wrong, good & evil, God & Satan. You could substitute his job for any less than desirable, kinda sketchy, one and the theory would be the same – what can you overlook to be with the one you love? If you like a little paranormal in your romance and enjoy stretching the bounds of realism just a little, this is a great pick. In the end, it’s a cute, entertaining romance about an everyday woman dating the devil, and should be handled as such.
