Book Description

Lucy O'Neill is a plain-Jane New York PR assistant with a tiny apartment, a dead-end job, and a pair of annoyingly perfect roommates. Nothing exciting ever happens to her, until one night at a neighborhood pub . . .
Lewis Mephisto is tall, handsome, and hot. Very hot. He meets her gaze through the crowd, a wicked grin on his lips, an irresistible invitation in his eyes.
He's Mr. Right Times Ten. Sophisticated, wealthy, sexy, and completely devoted to her, body and soul. So what's her problem?
Can't she handle dating the Devil?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great twist on classic story March 12, 2013
By Grace
Format:Paperback
At first blush, the story seems familiar: single girl in the big city meets a charming guy who seems too good to be true. Rather than descending into familiar clichés, the story takes a dramatic twist with the revelation that the charming guy is in fact Satan, the Lord of Darkness. This novel is an artful blend of comedy, romance, and drama. It also poses some interesting questions. It's a familiar part of many romance novels that the characters who fall in love must learn to accept the flaws and limitations of their partners. This story slyly asks exactly how far love can go. Can love lead a girl to overlook the fact that her true love is the incarnation of evil? I highly recommend this novel. It's a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars new twist on fast-paced quick read romance March 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dating the Devil- really cute premise, and very enjoyable read. This goes quickly, is a page-turner, and I wish the story went on longer. There are times when I found myself laughing outloud- always a great sign for a romance! The twist is quite clever- who would think that she was really dating the... well, I won't give it away.

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!)

3.0 out of 5 stars I would have just enjoyed more details, more spice. March 11, 2013
Format:Paperback
A romance with a plot and a synopsis rather interesting and original on paper. Unfortunately, I have not been moved by the result.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars clever, funny, and wonderfully well-written March 16, 2013
By Dante
Format:Paperback
Lia Romeo's first novel is a clever twist on the single girl in the Big City story. Of course you want Lucy to find love. But, with the devil? Like in her plays, you find yourself rooting for an unlikely couple because Lia shows that no matter what you might think about someone at the beginning, she'll make you want them to be happy by the end. Her writing is smart, and fun, and funny. The story-telling makes you forget this isn't the world you live in, but the magic and the romance are so natural you wish it was. A great book for a night by the fire, sitting at the beach, or when you just wish there was a little more excitement around the corner.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Anti-Hero Romance April 24, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For me, Dating the Devil was an enjoyably fun, fast paced read that I found myself coming back to even when I wasn't on the subway (which I rarely ever do. As a New Yorker, I also enjoyed familiar references to some of Manhattan's kitschier spots, particularly once I discovered where "hell" was located (a real chortle-out-loud kind of moment). I found the book pleasantly surprising in its depiction of the Father of Lies as...a doting mate? Definitely a unique twist on modern chick lit themes.

4.0 out of 5 stars contemporary romance with a devilish twist April 15, 2013
Format:Paperback
To begin with, I absolutely love the cover of Dating the Devil! It is ultra contemporary, classy and its sleekness just draws you in. Secondly, this story takes place in New York City, and as a former NYC commuter and dweller, I found the references to city landmarks, street names, etc., most comforting.

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.
