I sold my soul to the devil.
 
Hard times prove who’s a survivor and who’s not. Me? I’m a survivor.
 
The plan was perfect: steal one of his cars for a payout to set us up for life. All while getting back at him for tormenting me from the moment I first stepped foot in stuck up Silver Lake High School.
 
But he caught me red-handed. What’s worse, a jail sentence or becoming the devil’s favorite toy?
 
My devious monster made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Now I’m selling everything to him. Even my soul.
 
 
DEVLIN
 
The secret to being carefree is love nothing.
 
The puppets are fooled into believing my game of pretend. But the way she looks at me has always pierced beneath my skin. Like she knows. She’s a gutter rat—how could she possibly understand?
 
I vowed to break her the first time. When I catch her stealing my car, it’s clear she hasn’t learned her lesson. She won’t escape my wrath again.
 
Ready to play a game, little thief? The rules are simple: my way is law.
Devlin doesn’t have a heart. If he ever had one, it died off long ago. In its place sits a rotten, decayed hole.

“What exactly do you mean?”

Sign your soul over to me, or the cops.

How can I pick between my nightmare and the devil that torments me?

What does he expect me to do? It’s an impossible choice. But then again, so is the problem that drove me into this situation in the first place.

This feels like one of his cruel tricks, the same as his soccer buddies baiting me with dollar bills on fishing wire at school. Or last year, when he let me sit at his lunch table alongside Gemma because Lucas wanted her there, but the price was Devlin toying with my lunch tray and dumping it on the floor in front of everyone.

Devlin waves off my question. “I’ll give you what you came here for.”

That gets my attention. I sit up as much as I can on the narrow stool, swallowing.

“I don’t follow.” My forehead wrinkles. “You’re going to let me drive off with your car? Just like that?”

The corner of Devlin’s mouth quirks up and a dimple appears in his cheek.

“Not at all. You’re never to touch my car again.” He points at me to drive that decree home. He studies me with cunning curiosity. “No, what I mean is if you play my game, I’ll forget all about tonight. And if you do that, I’ll give you the money you obviously need.”

My lips part, lured by the temptation for a minute.

Reality catches up with me a second later. I snap my mouth shut as I seek out the part where he laughs in my face. Because what he’s offering? It sounds too fucking good to be true. He’ll just give me money? There’s a catch, I know it.

Devlin? Fine with helping me?

We hate each other.

“This offer expires before you leave here.” Devlin’s grin is smug. “So…ready to play a game, little thief?” He slinks closer, like a beast hunting me down for sport, drowning me in the rich, earthy scent of leather and spice. He wraps a lock of my hair around his finger while the smile dances on his lips, the dimples on display. “I’ll explain further. The rules are simple: my way is law.”

“That’s it?” I purse my lips to the side.

Things with Devlin are never simple. There are always layers, cruel pranks lurking beneath his punch line. I have a hard time believing what he’s offering is as straightforward as he puts it.“It’s a one time bargain.” Devlin leans in to whisper against my ear—because what’s a ringmaster without the theatrics? “You might say it’s a real steal.”

Veronica Eden is the author of dark new adult romances + reverse harem romances with spitfire heroines and irresistible heroes. She loves exploring complicated feelings, magical worlds, epic adventures, and the bond of characters that embrace us against the world. She has always been drawn to gruff antiheroes, clever villains, and the twisty-turns of morally gray decisions. She believes sometimes the villain should get the girl and is a sucker for a deliciously devilish antihero. Veronica Eden is the pen name of romance author Mara Townsend. When not writing, she can be found soaking up sunshine at the beach, snuggling in a pile with her untamed pack of animals (her husband, dog and cat), and surrounding herself with as many plants as she can get her hands on.

Tempting Devil (Sinners and Saints, #2)Tempting Devil by Veronica Eden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 amazing stars!

Bully romance has become one of my favorite genres. And this series is a great example of why. Devlin has bullied Blair for years and now after she tried to steal his car she sells her soul to him to stay out of jail. Needing money to help her sick mother she will do whatever Devlin wants. Only what starts out as him being a jerk slowly turns into an explosive relationship.
I loved these two. Together they are raw and sexy. I really liked their story and this series. Very excited for the next book so we can see what is going on with Bishop and Thea!

Wells Shanahan
 
I was a simple rookie cop in Seattle when I was both shattered and
transformed by a horrific massacre. I was fighting for justice for a young girl who’s family was murdered before her eyes.
 
Years later, my world is turned upside down when a series of similar
murders begin to haunt the Seattle area again.
 
Malia Strickland’s return in the midst of these crimes propels us
right back into one another’s lives. She is no longer a little girl, but every bit a woman. I was her hero back then. Now I have the chance to be so much more.
 
My life never made sense but has purpose and meaning with Malia in
it.
 
Malia Strickland deserves justice and the future that had been stolen
from her so long ago. I’ve made it my mission to give her both, even if it means sacrificing myself.
 
Malia Strickland
 
My life was altered, in a span of minutes when my family was brutally
taken from me. I only escaped with my life, because my hero pulled me from the horrific scene.
 
I spent eleven years away from the one place I loved so much. Now,
it’s finally time for me to come back and face the demons that have haunted me. Going home not only resurfaces memories I’d rather forget, but it seems to trigger a whole new string of murders just like the ones that took my family from me.
 
More than ever, I need Wells Shanahan to save me from the past and
what’s to come.
 
Wells has always been more than a hero to me. He’s my savior, my future,
my everything. Can I convince him, that our forbidden love is worth fighting for?
