A Deal with the Devil really is a lighthearted romantic comedy. A book about a Chicago career woman who amidst her troubles agrees to pose as a fiance to her ex boyfriend who she envisioned marrying (before he broke up with her) in exchange for some money. Jake just returned from Iraq only to learn that his estranged uncle is refusing to release the trust fund money until Jake is married. With Jakes business on the line, he blurts out to Amanda his ex that the two should get married. Caught in debt with no way out, Amanda agrees to Jakes terms but in turns she gets more than she was willing to bargain for.
A deal with the Devil was a cute book. It was a nice light, clean romantic read with an interesting plot and characters. I did enjoy the whole background to the book, it was easy to follow and quiet entertaining at times, with enough going on that kept me from going bored.
The characters were good. I liked Amanda to a point, I felt bad for her because of her brother that took so much advantage of her that left her with a nice big debt that until Jake showed up - would have felt like a big mountain to over come. At the same time, I didn't feel bad for her because she looked weak when it came to her sibling. Clearly something else was going on, but without questioning she kept forking him the money, even when she was thousands of dollars in debt with everything maxed out. For someone who claims independence and refuses help constantly from people that try to give her yet she ends up take help from her ex Jake in the most unconventional way.Read more ›
I found the book amusing in places but not really funny. The characters are interesting, and the plot held my attention, for the most part. About half way through, the story began to drag for me. The same problems and disagreements went on for too long. However, this didn't last forever, and the action picks up again. There's plenty of pre-martial sex, but it's not explicit. Amanda had locked her bedroom door, but Jake said he'd looked in on her several times as she slept to make sure she was okay. Nothing was said or explained about the inconsistency. How Jake planned to make money for his investors in his new business of helping vets was never explained either. Who would pay for these extra services? I found a few missing commas, but the mechanics seemed pretty good. All in all, I enjoyed the read.
Amanda is trying to escape her high-stress life with a quick getaway to her friend's cabin in the woods. Unmindful of a pending snowstorm, she is brought face to face with her past when her ex-boyfriend, a Navy SEAL, is sent to rescue her by her match-making best friend, Kate. Not only does he rescue her from the snow storm, he sets out to rescue her from a significant financial debt caused by her wayward, irresponsible younger brother. There's only one catch: she needs to play the role of his fake fiance in order for him to help her out.
I would recommend this book to my friends who honestly still believe in "happily ever after"s and who believe the love conquers all

Enjoyed the characters very much. It is simply typical of how failing to communicate feelings because we are afraid leading to lost time and misunderstandings. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sharon
