Review: Sympathy for the Devil by Christine Pope

Sympathy for the Devil by Christine Pope

Publisher: Pink Petal Books
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat Rating: 2



You know what they say about deals with the Devil…
This time the deal the Devil makes is with God, who offers him a chance at redemption if he can experience human love. Easy enough, according to the Devil, who thinks that making the woman God has chosen fall in love with him will be a simple task. Unfortunately, Lucifer didn’t count on interfering demons, blundering boyfriends, and a young woman who has more questions than he’s willing to answer.

Denise's Review

Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

I really don’t know where to begin with this one. Admittedly, it took me a bit to “get into it”, but once the action started, it didn’t stop. Talk about creative writing, wonderfully-construed characters, an interesting premise, and slow, sizzling heat that climbs so slowly you don’t realize you’re burning until you’re halfway into your cold shower.

Lucifer wants out of Hell, and upon taking his request to God, is issued a very specific task. From there, readers are given insight into Christa, the woman with whom Lucifer is meant to fall in love. He shows up periodically through her childhood, until one day—her birthday—introducing himself as the Devil and whisking her away on a romance she can’t trust, but ultimately can’t get enough of. Throw in this with bits of philosophy—the Devil’s take on The Da Vinci Code, souls, free-will, what does or does-not constitute a Hell-worthy crime—and you have an incredibly entertaining, sizzling read that keeps you involved intellectually and stimulated in all the other areas. To say I was impressed is an understatement.
