The dialogue is especially good- Lia Romeo has a great ear for clever, realistic dialogue. Since I probably won't go off to New York and experience what Lucy does, at least I can read about it! This is the perfect curl-up-before-the-fire-with-a-book novel. It moves really quickly, and never drags.
Since this is her first novel, I am hoping she has a long career writing fun romance novels. I think she is a big talent. It will be fun to see what happens in the sequence (there HAS to be a sequel... the story is just getting started!)
The reader follows Lucy and her two girlfriends in their outings in search of love or a one-night stand. Mel is engaged but appreciates some casual tongues exchanges with strangers behind the back of her husband-to-be. Nat enjoy life by changing guys every day. Until she meet a man to whom she is really attracted and regret her slutty behavior. Lucy seeks a soulmate and meet...Satan.
Falling in love is accepting the imperfections of the other. But can Lucy overlook the King of Hell's occupations and build a relationship with the one she loves?
This could have been funny. This could have plunged the reader into the underworld with an explosion of the author's imagination about her vision of the hell and its inhabitants. However, for my taste, Lia Romeo was too retained, too superficial in her background descriptions while focusing too much on the party times.
So, the romance is nice but not enough to make you sigh aloud and the devil's description are too overflown.
An in between that makes the story a little bland. It's a real shame because the idea was promising.
However, I read this novel without getting bored. The style is good, and I did not find lengths. I would have just enjoyed more details, more spice. But even if the magic has not operated, I will definitively follow the next book of this author.
If you are looking for a contemporary romance with a devilish twist, this book is for you! Dating the Devil by Lia Romeo is an emotional, yet sometimes comical view of romance. It is well written and the characters (with one exception) are real and relatable. In all honesty, I was not really into the book at the beginning, however as the storyline unfolded, I began to like it. The author gets an A++ for originality of storyline!
The story focuses on Lucy, a single young woman that works for a boutique Public Relations firm in NYC. She lives with her two best friends from college, Natalie and Melissa, in an upscale apartment in Manhattan. Lucy and Melissa work hard and play hard, while Natalie works a little and parties a lot. These women are looking for love, stability and security. One evening, while on the prowl in a dive bar, Lucy meets her soul-mate, Lewis. Unfortunately for Lucy, Lewis is not what he seems. He is unique and his uniqueness is difficult for Lucy to navigate.
The women learn to love in their own way while maturing in the process. Through various situations, Lucy, Natalie and Melissa create their own destiny.
I will definitely read another book by Lia Romeo.

A solid effort right up until the end. I hated the maybe-it's-a-cliffhanger ending. There's a right way to do series books; this was the wrong way. Read morePublished 5 months ago by cmvaldes
This book was ok and different than most other books that I read. I enjoyed the heroine in the story. She was the best part. And I was not crazy about the leading man.Published 8 months ago by Alice
