The Devil's Eyes by Jennifer Loren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 Holy Moly STARS!
The Devil’s Eyes does not get enough credit! It’s one crazy book with action, romance and secrets. It will leave you shaking once finished.
Kayla only has her sister, Braylin. When Braylin commits suicide because of a breakup, it’s Kayla’s mission to avenge her sister’s death. Kayla plans to seduce and hurt Nick, Bryalin’s ex-boyfriend. But Nick is no normal boyfriend, he’s lives a dangerous world that Kayla isn’t afraid to jump in.
WHAT A CRAZY STORY?!!!!!!
I picked up The Devil’s Eyes because I wanted an action pack book with a damaged Hero and boy did I get that. Kayla is a tough cookie. Her story is very sad. She loved her sister and doesn’t understand why Braylin killed herself. Kayla decides to be a stripper for the club Nick owns. What I love about Kayla is she is no “innocent” girl. She wants to avenge her sister, so she has to be a stripper? Sure! She strips with pride and uses her brain to get Nick’s attention.
Then she has to become a prostitute! She again, doesn’t bat an eye and this is when I get REALLY into the book. I love leading ladies with sad past, but a strong disposition that isn’t annoying. Kayla isn’t like I-AM-WOMAN-HEAR-ME-ROAR, she simply knows what she needs to do to get the job done. She’s sassy, funny and really smart. I love interaction between the men that cross her path.
As for NICK, he’s the Hero you love to hate and want to take to bed. He’s a grade-A jerk and not the kind where you understand his actions, oh no, he doesn’t care about anyone but himself. Does he chase after Kayla? No. Does he let her sell her body to other men? Yes. Nick’s character is really interesting to me. He has so much power and it comes with a high price. Nick is untouchable. Although he isn’t overly interested in Kayla, you can tell he keeps his eye on her at least.
Connor, one of Kayla’s clients gets a little too interested with Kayla and things get really interesting. There is a slight love triangle, but the tension is so high, it’s anything but entertaining. I love the banter and love/hate relationship Kayla and Nick have. I was glued to the pages and couldn’t get enough!
A lot of obstacles go on in The Devil’s Eyes, there’s NEVER a dull moment. Just think a combination of Killing Sarai and Sempre. It’s just crazy action, suspense and you never know what’s going to happen.
The ending wasn’t a surprise, but oh by the OPEN CLIFFY will leave you hanging speechless. I enjoyed this book A LOT and I can’t wait for book 2.
