I’m the devil’s spawn.
The son of evil incarnate.
The heir to corruption and depravity.
Gabrielle Duval once belonged to me. And whether she likes it or not, she’s destined to be mine again. What will it take to lure this luscious woman back into my bed? A deal with the devil himself, of course.
My name is JD Wilder, and this is the story of how I reclaim what’s mine.
My Review: 4 stars
Possible Spoilers ahead!
So this is the second book in a duet. You HAVE to read the first book to understand this one.
This book starts where the last one left off….Gabrielle’s hotel is on fire.
Julian thinks the worst. What if Gabrielle is dead? Was his dad behind the fire? Is anyone else hurt?
What Julian doesn’t realize is that even though he didn’t lose Gabrielle in the fire, he did lose a part of her. Now he is determined to keep her safe and figure out who was behind the fire.
Gabrielle has lost more than any person should. She is not only dealing with the lose of a friend but now she has to deal with Julian being clingy and over protective.
But knowing her life is in danger, Gabrielle does what she needs to do to keep herself safe, even if she doesn’t like it.
But what will happen when Gabrielle is threatened? Will Julian be able to keep her safe this time or will he finally lose her all together?
I will say that I wish the “big event” that we were waiting for the entire time would have happened differently but I am just glad it happened.
This book is told more from Julian’s POV then Gabrielle’s. I like seeing what is going on in his head. He comes off as an asshole but you can tell he really does care, even when it is hard to see.
Overall, I really enjoyed this duet. Eva was a new author to me and I can’t wait to read more of her work.
I am so ready for Smith’s book!!!
About the Author:
A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.
A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.
Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.
When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.
