Weddings are hell
After a month of planning not one, but two, demonic weddings, all Faith Bettincourt—the youngest Crown Princess of Hell—wants is to spend some quality time with her angelic boyfriend, Matt. But when a ghost from Matt’s past walks through Faith’s apartment door, her preoccupation with the weddings from Hell is all that’s keeping her from turning his ex, in all her devious angelic glory, into a down throw pillow.
Which is about when Matt’s zealous mother declares war on Faith’s family.
Now Faith will stop at nothing to stop the craziness and make sure the impending nuptials go off without a hitch. All she’s got to do is rescue one of the grooms and go up against an army of so-called do-gooders, and everything will go back to normal. Or as normal as it can be where the Devil's spawn is concerned. With any luck, she might just be able to resuscitate her love life while she's at it.
I was really looking forward to this book in the series. I really enjoyed the first book. Well, this book drove me crazy. I actually liked the book and the story was something that I really felt involved with. I wanted to know what happened next.
But this book was seriously, "Attack of the Crazy Exes" if that was a cheesy horror film from the 80's. Matt's ex, Brenda shows up on Faith's doorstep almost immediately. She's looking for Matt to take care of her because she's run away from the compound that his mother runs. So apparently it's now his responsibility to be her caretaker because she can't think of anyone else to turn to? And Faith goes along with it! It becomes obvious pretty quickly that Brenda is there to really try to win Matt back. Faith knows it but is being a "good girlfriend" by letting her stay around. I wanted to punch Brenda the entire book. Plus, Faith's ex-fiance shows up. Which brings a whole bunch of other crazy business around.
Faith's parents and her brother and best friend are all getting married. So there is wedding planning madness going on. Things reach a boiling point when Tolliver goes missing. Turns out Matt's mom Valerie, sends Brenda to Matt on a mission to save him from the wicked ways of Faith. And when things don't go the way they want, they KIDNAP Tolliver. Matt's mom is off her rocker, seriously. And you think things would just end there but no, they get even crazier.
I really did like this book. The stuff with Brenda and Dan (Faith's ex) drove me crazy though. Mainly because they were interfering and I like Matt and Faith together and well. Of course all the other characters in this book were just as crazy and fun as the first book. There were a lot of really funny moments and there were a lot of moments where I really just wanted Faith to deck Brenda and Matt's mom. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. I really need to know what happens next in Faith's crazy life.
