Devilishly Hot is definitely devilishly fun! Kathy Love gifts
Devilishly Hot is definitely devilishly fun! Kathy Love gifts readers with a delightful, fun and swoon-worthy tale of love and demons in her latest release, Devilishly Hot.
Imagine the fashion industry run by Demons – not really such a far stretch of the imagination, huh? That is precisely who runs one of the major fashion magazines – Hot! Finola White is a gorgeous, pampered diva like no one you have ever met. What Finola wants, Finola gets – or the person who fails to come through gets their soul whisked away to hell without a second thought.
Unsuspecting Annie Lou Riddle is thrilled when she is called to work her dream position at Hot! Magazine, as a personal assistant to the world famous Finola White. A little thing like signing over her soul for a 10 year gig at a much coveted job seems like nothing – that is until Annie begins work and realizes that Finola is not just a Demon in name but in all aspects of the word. She works Annie to exhaustion with impossible demands without a blink of an eye and Annie has no choice but to do what she is told – or lose her soul to eternal damnation.
It is when Detective Nick Rossi comes on the scene to investigate 21 missing people, from Hot! Magazine, that things really heat up. An instant and nearly combustive chemistry forms between Nick and Annie upon first laying eyes upon one another. He is sexy beyond words, charming with a devil-may-care attitude and oh-so-yummy. Annie is sweet and innocent, stuck in a not-so-great relationship and can’t help but yearn for Nick’s lips to caress her own and bring a bit of happiness back to her life. There is one big problem – Finola has set her sights on Nick and anyone that gets in her way will find themselves on a one way, no return trip to the flaming depths of hell.
Devilishly Hot was such an enjoyable, fun and captivating read. I loved every minute of it. Filled with paranormal, intrigue, surprises and steaminess, this is definitely one book that will whisk the stress of the day away. The characters of Nick and Annie were excellent. I dearly loved them both. The twist that Kathy Love gave to the Devil was tons of fun and I loved the devilishly Demon characters (or loved to hate them, whichever the case may be, ha!). Ms. Love has a great talent for storytelling with a catchy plot, smooth writing style, humor and great character development. Did I mention her ability to bring sizzle and steaminess billowing from the pages? Oh, yes, there are moments of heat that will leave the reader a bit short of breath. All of these wonderful things wrapped up in one not-to-be-missed story. What more could one ask for – and you don’t even have to sell your soul to the Devil! Reviewed by April.

A Devilishly Hot Romance
Annie Lou Riddle had big dreams and when she landed the job at HOT magazine she thought they all came true and if her dreams included selling her soul and working for demons she'd be right. Now after three long years in servitude to her demon boss Finola White she thinks she can manage the remaining seven year sentence and she just might have if she'd never met Detective Nick Rossi.Was this review helpful?

Nick Rossi is back on the force and now investigating too many strange disappearances from the offices of HOT magazine and when he meets the boss Finola White that uncomfortable pricking on the back of his neck starts again, but meeting Annie seems to make it all worth his while, but she's skittish and she's taken.
Annie and Nick are instantly attracted to each other but there are obstacles in their way and some of them are demonic.
It's rare that a title so perfectly describes what's between the pages of a novel but this one hits the jackpot because Devilishly Hot this one is in every way and this talented storyteller brings us one devilishly hot romance. Her plot is straight from the brothers Grimm with morals and consequences to boot. Her dialogue is perfect for the contemporary reader with its fast paced, exciting and descriptive narrative. And her characters, oh her characters are real characters some angelic, some straight from Hades and some in between. Her villains are deliciously devilish and will have you cringing and laughing out loud at the same time. Her hero is the all American male, strong, protective and with a heart of gold and her heroine is the small town girl makes big gone bad that never fails to pull the heartstrings of the readers and most importantly of the hero. The romance is soulful, it's heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time and readers will find themselves constantly on the edge of their seats waiting for the next thing to happen to this couple. The love scenes are also HOT, spicy and descriptive and should come with a doctors warning from the elevated heart rate and pulse that it will cause.
So if you're looking for something to warm you in the first cold days of autumn, or looking for a devilishly funny read with enough substance to make it go that distance to be so much more than "chick lit" or just another romance novel, if you like your romance with a paranormal/fantasy twist, if you like your romance on the sizzle burner, look no farther than this tale. And if this is your first by Kathy Love it won't be your last.

Intrigue, a touch of mystery and a whole lotta demons!
My review is for 3.5 Stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Annie is a southern girl transplanted into the dog-eat-dog world of New York City. She came to New York to make it in the fashion industry. Now is her chance. Too bad she didn't know going to work for Fiona White was a win/lose proposition. Win the best job at the hottest magazine in the world. Lose your soul!
Nick has a problem. He is trying to prove to his superiors that he is not crazy. Yes, he lost control and said that a murder suspect looked like a monster awhile back, but he was just a bit overworked, or so he thinks. Little did he know that he was not crazy and now he is surrounded by real monsters, demons. He just walked into the biggest nest in New York, Hot! Magazine.
Annie and Nick are attracted at first collision. The problem is they can't seal the deal. Annie's boss, Finola wants Nick too, and she always gets what she wants, ALWAYS!
This is a light romantic read. The bedroom scenes are spicy but not scorching. The villains are despicable yet not scary. The romance between Annie and Nick is fun. Their journey to each other is riddled with demonic bosses, uninterested boyfriends and well the possibility of going to hell. It is a rather easy read. It did have some problems for me though.
You would think by the look of the cover that this is a light comedic read. I guess in a way it is, but then it isn't. This book is an enigma. The cover is very cutesy. The plot had the potential to be a cute fun story, but really wasn't. I think it tried to be a bit of a dark comedy with over the top characters, but it was quirky. It just didn't feel right to me, maybe because I did start the book with a preconceived notion from the cover. I don't think poor Annie looked that chipper, even once in the story. Not to mention Nick was a bit too rough and blue collar to wear a suit. He was a man's man. YUM! My biggest concern and problem is this is a light romance and Annie and Nick had unprotected sex, every time. I was a bit shocked and disappointed, especially in today's age. I've read erotic romances with safer sex. Okay, I'm stepping off my soapbox now.
Devilishly Hot is a nice change from the standard paranormal romances out there. It is a novel filled with hellish plots, twisty turns, and a dog. This is an original story and pleasantly entertaining. There were a few nice surprises and the characters were rather unique. If you enjoy Ms. Love's other novels you will likely enjoy Devilishly Hot too.

Filled with humor, readers will enjoy this entertaining tale as hearts and souls are on the line
Annie Lou Riddle left the dirt of the rural south for a chance to make in the fashion industry in the dirty streets of Manhattan. However, to break into the highly competitive field, Annie sells her soul to the devil. She obtains a job as an assistant to the head of Hot! Magazine Finola White, the deviously damning diva. Annie Lou wants out, but to demon kind a contract is a contract.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Detective Nick Rossi investigates the magazine, a hot bed of missing employees; twenty-one have vanished with most being Annie Lou's predecessors as a magazine assistant position proves hazardous to one's health. Finola is attracted to Nick so she orders Annie Lou to help her. Nick is attracted to Annie Lou but makes no headway with her as she keeps passing him on to her boss. Annie Lou wants Nick, but wants her soul more than him.
Although the story line is thin, the second Hot! Magazine romantic urban fantasy (see Hot! in So I Married a Demon Slayer anthology) is an amusing triangular from hell frolic. Filled with humor, readers will enjoy this entertaining tale as hearts and souls are on the line in the world of high fashion.
