REVIEW: Devil You Know by L.A. Fiore

Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn't expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot...to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm's-length. 

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me. 

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.


WOW!! My head is spinning and my heart is bleeding. 
This book was sweet, tender, heartbreaking and beautifully healing. 
This was like a punch of intense emotions, sexy characters and amazing writing!

"Devil You Know" introduces us to Damian and Thea. This is Damian's journey of losing the family he never had, his journey of self discovery, finding love and losing it and then finding his lost love again and holding onto it with his dear life.

The story takes us through different stages of Damian's and Thea's life.The prologue introduces the readers to a five or six years old Damian whose life turns upside down when his dad leaves him and his mom. Damian's mother is the shittiest mother in the history of fictional mothers. The verbal abuse he inflicted on Damian broke my heart.

He's a monster, a fucking devil, and you are just like him. 
His evil little spawn"

The story proceeds and we are introduced to a 17 years old Damian. He develops friendship with Cam, Thea's brother. Cam introduced him to his family where he met Thea and was just smitten with the wild haired beauty. As to story continued Thea and Damian developed a unique, unbreakable bond and the innocent friendship transformed into passionate love.

Damian loved Thea from the core of his heart, Thea was his life, his everything but he left her in order to find himself and joined army. Thea as stubborn as ever waited for him to return. 

Image and video hosting by TinyPicI wanted to be better for her and me and to that I had to leave, even when everything in me wanted to stay."

The story takes a time leap and we meet 31 years old Thea and Damian. They wanted to start from where they ended but nothing is same, everything is just twisted and they both are different but their love for each other is even stronger.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic...You own me. Every dark part of me

There are so many twists and turns in this story and you won't be able to wrap your head around everything. This book is an epic roller coaster ride of emotions. I cried, I laughed, I swooned. I loved Damian and even hated him. I wanted to hug him and kiss him and then shake some sense into him. I definitely loved Thea. She is one of the best heroines, I've ever come across. 


I loved how the story ended. It was just perfect and the epilogue was just amazing. Thea and Damian didn't have an easy love story. This book is not just a love story but also a story of self discovery. "Devil You Know" proved that love can conquer anything and everything, no matter how difficult is the path.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicI had wished as a girl to know all about the quiet, reserved boy he had been, and I did now, I knew every part of his beautiful, complicated and damaged soul and I loved all of him.

Thea's first letter to Damian just broke my heart. I loved that scene. Damian opened her letter and cried for the first time and I cried with him. It was the most emotional scene. He even carried that letter everywhere with him*swoon*.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.  Including her. 
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 
Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
