Kimberly Raye,
The Devil's in the Details
(Montlake, 2013)

Jess is a succubus and just happens to be the daughter of the devil, who turns out to be a woman. Jess runs a highly successful wedding planning business, which the family believes is so she can have her way with the grooms, the groomsmen and any other male in the wedding parties. But Jess is a secret romantic, and she's hoping for her own Happily Ever After while making sure Houston brides get theirs.

In this book, her mother is getting married and wants Jess to plan the wedding. All the while Jess has issues in her private life that include a demon hunter she's wildly attracted to (since she's a demon that's not good) and a mysterious someone who is out to get her.

I have mixed feelings about this story. I like the premise, even if it was familiar, and I loved the characters. What I didn't like was the comedy. Some of it was funny, but most of the time I felt like it was overkill. The silliness was overdone.

I want to read the next book in the series as this book did its job in capturing my attention and keeping it. The story flowed nicely and the characters are pretty unforgettable. I think this was a fun book and a decent start to a series, I just wasn't blown away.
