Early Review: Luck of the Devil by Patricia Eimer



Being the youngest daughter of the Devil isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The days of teenage rebellion and vows of chastity made just to tick off her father are over, and now all Faith Bettincourt wants is a nice, quiet life. Unfortunately, thanks to the unexpected arrival of her demonically-downsized sister, a ditzy succubus roommate, and dear old Dad himself, Faith’s plans for a relaxing vacation spent watching reruns go up in flames.

Now it’s all Faith can do to keep the family reunion from Hell (literally) under wraps, and the angelically-inclined hottie across the hall from realizing there’s something weird about his neighbor. And, thankfully, it’s working. Until an angelic stalker shows up in a bid to steal her powers and take over the world.

Forget watching reruns. With the way things are going, Faith will need the luck of the Devil just to survive until Monday. (Goodreads)

Who knew the devil was a family guy? I sure didn’t. As I was reading through Luck of the Devil, I honestly had to put it down at one point to ask one of my sisters was she sure our father was not the devil. My family dynamic was so much the same, just take out all the paranormal. Of course my sister has assured me she has never seen any horns.

Faith is in a bit of trouble, she has gone and gotten herself a stalker. When your overprotective dad is the devil you have to devise ways of keeping your personal life well…personal. When Faith’s stalker makes trouble for her at work she is quick to call her super hot neighbor, Matt, who just so happens to also be a lawyer. Matt and Faith’s chemistry was hot enough to scorch the pages. I loved reading the two of them.

Each of the side characters add so much to the book, and there are so many laugh out loud moment. The fact that Faith’s mom is with the devil, but she just tries to tell herself that he and god are just a different species…so funny. She reminded me of that crazy relative you’re always trying to get away from at the family reunion.

Even though this is a comedy there is a little mystery and action thrown in as well.  After trying to figure out who Faith’s stalker is throughout the book to find out that it is actually….. like I’m telling!!! Go read the book. 

Luck of the Devil is a fantastically fun read. I hope the author continues to write more with these characters. I think each of Faith’s siblings could easily hold their own book.

Happy Reading,
