Devil to Pay - Renee Bernard

Being the Devil is a job no one wants. The hours are terrible, the workload unbelievable and frankly, customer service is a nightmare. You're blamed for everything and liability is no joke when you're the Lord of Darkness. As a result, turnover for the position is fairly high. The current Lucifer is the seventh lucky one to lose the ultimate lottery and land the title. Truthfully, there's very little evil to be instigated. Free will and a bad history of twisted mythology takes care of all of it--so the guy behind the black onyx desk is generally just the unhappy Arch Angel left filling out paperwork and doing his best to keep the Big Boss happy. And for Lucifer, forget about dating. It's a long, dry run, unless you're into the women that might be into you--and frankly, the current Lucifer isn't too turned on by ladies wearing spider web stockings and red Jell-O in their hair. Not that he blames a few of his predecessors with embracing the Goth hooker thing, but--an Angel has to be true to himself.
So when Lucifer accidentally bumps into a mortal woman who makes him rethink the wisdom of not applying for that maintenance position in Purgatory, it's a roller coaster ride. Love can make anyone crazy. And Lucifer is determined to see if he can make it snow in Hell if it will polish up his wings enough to win the girl and get himself fired.

First thoughts after…
Man oh man…I can't wait for the next book!

How distracted did I get?
Devil to pay is a fun, crazy and awesome RomCom!  I love Jayne and her quirky sense of humor. I was swooped up and riding a roller coaster through the story with her and I loved every minute!  Luke, Lucifer…well, let's just say he's a handsome Devil! ;)  Luke is definitely hottie mctottie material and he's funny, sweet and charming.  I love the poker games he has with all the Archangels.  They are hilarious!  Azreal, I would love to see more of him. Angel of Death or not he has HUGE potential and the looks to rival most hottie mctotties!  Devil to Pay is definitely a book I would recommend to romcom readers!
I give Devil to Pay…

  1. Your assessment is correct. I think that Renee Bernard could elaborate further on each of the Archangels and give each one of them a romance. It was just fun reading and I hope that Renee's present fans will read this one, too.

  2. Indeed! It's the beginning of a great new series.
