Already such a huge fan of Cynthia Eden’s stories, I was immediately hooked by the premise of THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE, the first book in the brand new Bad Things series. Demons, angels, shifters, sirens, and bad guys from a secret government group…can it get any better?
***purchased for my own personal reading but sharing my honest and unscripted review
Blurb for THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE:
Don’t make the devil angry…
Luke Thorne loves having one hell of a good time. As the ruler of every dark creature to walk the earth, he certainly has more than a bit of a bad side. He lives for danger and isn’t the type to lose his heart—mostly because he doesn’t have one. Then she walks into his life.
Mina James is seduction in the flesh, a perfect temptation that the devil himself couldn’t pass up. Too late, Luke realizes he’s let a real siren into his life, a woman who is bent on using his dark powers to free herself from hidden enemies. Since Luke isn’t the type of man to be used, he should walk away from her, but…something about Mina draws him close.
Soon he’s realizing that she isn’t who she appears to be. Not dark and cold, but burning red hot. Mina is a woman fighting for her life—and the Lord of the Dark suddenly finds himself in an unlikely role…hero. Luke isn’t going to let her enemies destroy Mina. He will fight heaven and hell to keep her. But in the end, the secrets they both carry may just rip apart a love that should never have been…
There are Bad Things in the world…very, very bad. Are you ready for them?
~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~
Thinking she can use her siren voice to manipulate Luke Thorne into giving her the Eye of Hell so that she might rid herself of her paranormal abilities, Mina James miscalculates her influence over him. Now she has more to worry about than freeing herself from the danger of falling back into the hands of the mysterious government group bent on turning paranormals into weapons. Now she has to survive Luke and her attraction to the Lord of the Dark.
Luke is not one to give up what he wants and he wants Mina. When truths come out, he shows himself to be truly selfless even if it means a broken heart.
THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE, book one in the Bad Things series by Cynthia Eden starts out a little slow. There were even times when I almost gave up but then all of sudden, things started happening and I was hooked from that moment on. What started out slow turned into an exciting, action-packed, twist-filled story about truths, assumptions that were all wrong, loyalty, and selfless acts coming from where you least expect.
I thoroughly enjoyed THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE…once it got going anyway. I’m very excited about the series too. Cynthia is so good at creating characters that you care about and want to see have a happy ending so just when you think it isn’t possible, she hits you with a twist that makes you smile. This story was written with lots of imagination and you’re always really wondering exactly who are the good guys and the bad because frankly, it could go either way.
I absolutely recommend THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE, book one in the Bad Things series by Cynthia Eden. Perhaps you won’t find the start slow and if so, great…just be sure to read the rest of it because it will knock your socks off. Oh, she also gives us some steamy scenes too…even one that made me sniffle a bit. I know I’m not supposed to like demons and devils but Luke Thorne is one hot stuff bad – good – bad guy. :-)
Happy Reading Everyone!
