My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Book Review: Devil May Care

Submitted by on May 1, 2009 – 17:41One Comment

“It’s so well written that you’ll begin to turn over your shoulder and start looking out for the Devil too!”

Sally Carpenter is a struggling actress in New York who tries her best to get a lead role in an production while working in a small bookstore at the corner of the city. Her boyfriend, a struggling actor like herself, gives her all the support she needs as they venture into the industry together to be successful Hollywood stars. Week in week out, Sally goes for audition for various parts in different productions but always walk away with disappointment. As she is about to give up at the one last audition she screws up, she bumps into a stranger who opens the way out for her: Jack Weaver.

Jack is not your ordinary stranger bloke who opens the door so that you know where to exit the building, he is the president of a major TV network. In short, he is GOD in the entertainment industry. He determines the success of individuals in the industry. He calls the shot. And call he did when Sally found herself being signed as the lead actress for a big major TV show. Initially, she thinks it’s about time for her stardom to breakthrough but as time passes by, she realises that it might just have something to do with that stranger she meets

Slowly Jack wins her heart and she begins to fall deeply in love with him. Despite doubting if she could trust him with her heart and soul, Sally couldn’t help falling deeper in love with Jack who seems so perfect as an ideal lifetime partner. Just over a month’s time, she is the biggest talk in town. Her career is roaring with success, her love life is tied with the most eligible bachelor in the country, her agent is proudly showing her off to everyone – she has everything she ever wanted and it’s perfect. But too perfect to be true. She can’t shake the feeling that something is wrong and she refuses to be blinded from it.

Flip through the pages and embark in this journey with her as Sally tries to identify the Devil in her life. It sorts of remind me of Ghostrider who traded his soul for love, except that Devil May Care talks about a girl falling in love with the Devil and the Devil (for the very first time) falls in love with a human. An insightful perspective of falling in and out of love, in and out of success, and the essence of trust in a relationship. Recommended to all.
