Overview

Who says the devil isn't worth a little romancing? He's hot, he's utterly charming, and when he falls for a woman, he falls oh-so-hard. He's willing to go all in to win her heart, which can be both adorable and a little terrifying, all at the same, delicious time.

Not-so-skilled magical apprentice Iris Bennett has one goal: to save the world from a spell gone wrong...an accident that is kinda her fault. She has only three days left to fix it, or all hell is going to break loose...maybe literally.

It's bad enough when she discovers her last chance to undo the spell is dead on the floor next to her crystal ball, but when she realizes that the dangerously sexy man standing beside the body might be the murderer, things get even more complicated.

Does she accept his magical help, or run as fast as she can from this devilishly sexy hottie who has secrets darker than the darkest recesses of hell? The problem is, she's pretty sure he's one of the good guys...until she discovers that he might not be after all...

But by then, she's already in over her head, and honestly, he really is such a temptation.

P.S. See that gold medallion on the cover? That means it contains Super Secret Bonus Scenes, which are extremely cool!

About the Author

About the Author: S.A. Bayne (aka Stephanie Rowe) is a gift to the universe, at least according to her dogs, and everyone knows dogs are world-class judges of people. She was taught to play by the rules, but after suffering numerous apoplectic breakdowns, she realized that she had to ditch the rules, figure out her own way to live, and then turn that into a high-octane, irreverent, unpredictable-as-hell, paranormal that will make your day so much better just by reading it. And yes, she is also New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Rowe, winner of the 2018 RITA® Award for Best Paranormal Romance. Because she's nifty like that.

Fast, Fun, Hilarious, Read! If you need cheering or something to turn your frown upside down, then grab this book now. From beginning to end Iris endeavors to save her friend and protect Mona from the hands of evil, or greed. A serious quest indeed... Along the way, she is met with many challenges. Evil, greed, lust, Satan, hunger, loneliness, and did I mention Satan? Action, fighting, laughing, lust, some denying, more lusting. Not your normal quest. For all the laughing, eye rolling, grabbing your side from laughing to much, there is an underlying story of growth and loyalty. The storyline keeps you turning the page, the characters are hilariously, and the story well written. But I have to say that Satan was a little to campy for me to see as a serious love interest. But this is a Romantic Comedy and therefore completely exceptably. I found him adorable and he is extremely qualified to give the best orgasms. He came across as someone who was still growing into himself. Overall I recommend this book to anyone who likes a lusty, fun read. I had a smile on my face 95% of the time it took me to enjoy this book. I voluntarily reviewed this advance readers copy. My opinions are mine own, unbiased and honest.

Please do not eat or drink while reading this, I'm asking nicely because I don't want you to ruin your reader!! From the beginning the author has you laughing and needing more! From girlie parts and the way he talks you just smile until your face hurts! You get to know the characters and the story isn't missing anything, except for maybe needing to be longer. Get comfy and tell everyone to leave you alone and enjoy!

This is a quick, fun read. It gives you background on some of the twists from the other book featuring Iris's daughter. You learn how Iris became involved in the battle to protect Mona. The devil is very tempting to her but she tries to stay strong. I enjoyed learning more about her and smiled at the dialogue which definitely is written with humor in mind. I was hoping we would get a little more about her later years but this ends with her daughter as a baby. I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received.

I loved the characters and laughed so hard at some of the banter. This story was very good, and the super secret bonus scenes were also great.

This book is a continuation of a series in a way, but we jump back into the past and learn more about Iris and how she ends up in limbo. IN her race to beat a curse she meets Satan for the first time. How she resists him and his seduction for as long as she does is beyond me. Satan is by far my favorite character in this series. He is Satan and supposed to be evil, but he does his best to fight his evil urges and be the opposite of his father. This makes for a riot of a good read. Just when you think the book is done there are two super secret bonus scenes that will help to answer all those questions and frustrations you are left with. Totally worth the read.

This author has done it again. Her books are just so much fun! Iris is back, and we get a glimpse of her past. We learn how Justine came to be, and how Iris ended up where she did. Oh, and you must grab the bonus scenes. I have to admit I’m not a fan of additional scenes, but these were just a great addition to the overall plot. You don’t need to have read the previous book in the series, but if you have, this is a great look into the past. If you haven’t read the previous one, you can jump right in after reading this one to see what happens next. Great romantic comedy; give this author’s books a try! I highly recommend this novella! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

This book is for romance readers who like their stories funny, hot, fast-paced, and with badass female characters instead of damsels-in-need-of-men. Not Quite a Devil is part of a new spinoff series called "Devilishly Sexy" by S.A. Bayne. This series is an outgrowth of another series called "Immortally Cursed." I highly recommend you read Immortally Cursed (the book) before reading Not Quite a Devil, as it will provide context for the setting and characters. Like S.A. Bayne's other works, one of my favorite parts of her writing is how the lead female character does not need anyone to save her. She is quite capable on her own, although help is always appreciated. This means characters can do things and go places you don't see coming, making the reading experience more fun. I found this to be especially true in the Super Secret Bonus Scene #2, as you find out the lead female is making things work on HER terms and not anyone else's. That's definitely refreshing! My next favorite aspect of the book is the best friend, and how she is more than just comedic relief or a way to provide exposition for the romance. As a reader, you quickly understand there is a lot of history that has forged their bond, and no matter what is happening on the passion end of the spectrum, the friendship refuses to take a backseat. I found it provided a better, more fun narrative with plenty of places and stories yet to explore for future books. Case in point? Super Secret Bonus Scene #1. I have two minor quibbles, and they are definitely minor. a) The book is too short! The author does a masterful job at setting the scene yet keeping you engrossed right up until the end. I immediately had to visit their website to check out when the next book is coming out. b) Fits in a bit with a; I wish there were more books available in a single series, instead of multiple series being launched around the same time. I can understand why this book is being published under a different series name and not under the original Immortally Cursed series, but it DOES make keeping track of which books fit where, a bit more confusing. This book is absolutely worth your time and the purchase price. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where the characters and this story go from here!

Oh my I love this story. I feel kinda guilty going to sleep dreaming about the devil! But that doesn't stop me from wanting more! This novella tells the story of Iris and others but most especially a sexy as heck Satan. It is funny, sexy and left me really anxious for more. I received an Advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I recommend to anyone who loves paranormal with a side of laughs to read this book.

Yes I know another 5 star. Why Because its freaking S.A. Bayne aka Stephanie Rowe hahaha and I just love the humor and the fun action that she adds into her books . In every book that she has written that I have read and I have read them all that I got my hands. She does know how to bring the light in times of darkness well for me anyways she makes my heart smile when it needs one . Anyway the book well I think you will like this one we start off with one heck of a sexy man that can say just about anything to get your pants off hahaha but we have a headstrong woman that is on a mission and Iris is determined to stick with it come Hell or HIGH water and that water can melt your heart. In comes the best friend who is there when you need her but she gets thrown away by the devil himself and then she has to find her own way back to Iris to help keep the item they are hiding out of the devils hands . So come and read the store of Iris and Satan . While he tries to talk her into letting him have her Girly bits for all time. I'ts a fun laugh out loud adventure that keeps you wanting more even after the Secret bonus parts Oh didnt I mention them ? Yes you have to get them and read them cause they are so much part of the story you cant miss out on . We really need to keep them in the books . So go forth and read and laugh and aww heck root for the devil in this one I did . MUWAHAHAHAHAHA Who says the devil isn't worth a little romancing? He's hot, he's utterly charming, and when he falls for a woman, he falls oh-so-hard. He's willing to go all in to win her heart, which can be adorable and a little terrifying, all at the same, delicious time. Not-so-skilled magical apprentice Iris Bennett has one goal: to save the world from a spell gone wrong…an accident that is kinda her fault. She has only three days left to fix it, or all hell is going to break loose...maybe literally. It's bad enough when she discovers her last chance to undo the spell is dead on the floor next to her crystal ball, but when she realizes that the dangerously sexy man standing beside the body might be the murderer, things get even more complicated. Does she accept his magical help, or run as fast as she can from this devilishly sexy hottie who has secrets darker than the darkest recesses of hell? The problem is, she's pretty sure he's one of the good guys…until she discovers that he might not be after all… But by then, she's already in over her head, and honestly, he really is such a temptation. P.S. See that gold medallion on the cover? That means it contains Super Secret Bonus Scenes, which are extremely cool.
