*This is book Three in The Devil’s Own series but can be read as a standalone.
Millie Hart is very confused about the events that find her in her current predicament. Tripp “Raze” is very graphic in letting the reader know what he wants. It’s going to be a hard beginning to read so those who are faint of heart may not want to choose this book. What’s good is that Millie doesn’t get so graphic at what she has to endure. But with the great writing skills of this author you will have no trouble filling in the blanks.
One thing this author taught me is to never assume. I thought I knew in which direction this was going to go but nope, not even close – this is why I’m lousy at mysteries. This story has so many twists and turns that you cannot attempt to speed read or think that you can skim through some scenes. Especially when Millie comes across some people she knows. I wanted to know more about their relationship.
For me, there came a point where it got to be hard to put down. Having that mystery was one of the problems. I wanted to see if the author would drop any more hints as to what was going on so I kept looking for those. One thing I kept trying to figure out was how quickly she seems to go from nun to not. I know nuns have changed over the years but you would still think there would be more inner dialogue between her and God.
I found Miles to be an interesting character. Even though he was Raze’s employee he seemed to be there for Millie. He made for some interesting scenes. You can tell how much he’s come to care for Millie. Raze is more dark than Miles and raises more questions as to who he is.
I will say that the beginning was very hard to read – it does stir a lot of emotion. But you know an author is doing their job when they can get your emotions involved. And the ending shows that this story is far from over. This book may be a stand-alone but if you want to know how Millie and Raze’s story ends you’ll have to wait for Part II to come out. I was on the fence on this one but it still hooked me in because I need to know the end to this story. Plus at some point I’ll want to fill in the blanks about some of the other characters and will have to go back and read the previous two books.
