There are times when I pick up a book and read it, immerse myself in it and then get really, fricking annoyed with myself. Because after reading a book like this, I wonder why I’ve never met this author’s work before, why I’ve never drowned in her words before. I will forever read ANYTHING this author puts out going forward. This one book, Devil You Know has solidified my love for all things LA Fiore.
I’ve seen this book shared around lately, it caught my eye for sure but it wasn’t until a very trusted book friend raved about it that I decided I just HAD to pick it up. And now, I totally understand what she’s raving about because this book is PHENOMENAL. I honestly don’t think anything I write in a review will do the book justice. Just know that this book enveloped me, consumed me, broke me, healed me and above all else FUCKING OWNED ME!
Devil You Know is laid out so perfectly, so flawlessly. Everything about it is just EPIC. From the delightful, swoony butterflies that root themselves deep inside to the raw, intense, heart pounding suspense, to the overwhelming love that sizzles underneath it all, I was DONE FOR. Hooked so hard, pulled in so deep that I couldn’t come up for air. I didn’t even want to.
Damien and Thea have an undeniable pull. A connection so deep, it was hard not to get wrapped up in them, with them. They were everything I wanted and NEEDED them to be. The angst and tension that oozes from this book and it’s characters was STRONG. BREATHTAKING. And I LOVED IT.
Devil You Know will undoubtedly be up there in my TOP reads of 2017. Infact, it’s up in my TOP reads, period. I want to rebel and not give any star rating because IT DESERVES MORE than I could ever give! L.A. Fiore has a new fan FOR LIFE!
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.
