As far as angel books go, this book offers an interesting new perspective. The author explains quite clearly and succinctly, the reader won't be confused or left wondering. The author incorporates the angels into the novel as characters, they aren't left to the readers' imagination and they are given distinct personalities. The main character has a guardian angel that isn't the love interest, a major difference as compared to many other angel books.
Dylan is the love interest, the most intriguing quality he has is that he can smell like chocolate! He is handsome, protective of Ana, and the perfect love interest for this novel. The secondary characters, particularly Gabriel, are very fun to meet.
This novel is perfect for young adult/teen readers...even adult readers. The book ends very well, the events are fast-paced, the book is hard to put down, and the characters are very well-developed.
*complimentary review copy provided, this does not affect my opinion in any way*
Ana, you see, is an angel and her boo is a demon.
Try explaining that one to your pastor!
Ana meets Dylan in detention after school one day and finds herself obsessing about him. But when Ana discovers she's an angel and that her new crush is a demon, she knows things aren't going to get much easier. The other angels at her school warn her to stop seeing him. Dylan's demon buddies threaten her. About the only person who doesn't seem ready to kill her for dating a demon is her best friend, Cheyenne.
And that's before things really get hairy.
The premise of this novel drew me in. The complexity of the characters kept me reading. At first glance, it might be easy to think that anything involving angels and demons will be a pretty cut-n-dry affair. After all, angels are good, demons are bad, right? I was pleasantly surprised that this was not the case. In Ana's universe, everyone makes mistakes, even angels. Toss in a murder mystery and angels with a superiority complex and you've got yourself a great page-turner.
I wish I had an angel for a best friend. I would totally make them play my favorite ABBA songs on the harp.
With Devil.May.Care, I had a few "What The ...." moments with some of the things the main character Ana said or did. What stuck out the most for me was that the first time Ana saw/meet Dylan [her main love interest in the book] she said "I didn't recall ever seeing him in the hallways and he wasn't the kind of person who was easily forgotten. I decided that I wanted to have his baby. Not right away, but someday, once we were both done with college". Now I thought that was a really strange thing for a 16 year old to say. Its been 10 years since I was 16 years old, but I hope that's not a normal thing for any 16 year old girl to think or say in 2011, if they see a hot guy. But after reading Devil.May.Care. I happily give the book: 4 Stars [CAUSE I REALLY LIKE IT ... I'M WILLING TO READ MORE]
I found that Jolene's writing kept my attention and ended up reading this one pretty darn fast. I was impressed with myself. I liked the characters in Devil. May. Care they were relatable and I found some characters shocked me with their actions which didn't seem quite divine or evil enough for their respected side.
If you are a fan of Angels/Fallen Angels stories you must add Devil. May. Care to your collection
