The Devil You Know
My name is Mavi StClair.
I’m a monster with a pretty face. An assassin in trade. Guilt, remorse, it’s never touched me. I’m as cold as they come and just as professional.
Dealing death has always come easily, and I inflict it with ease. It fuels and feeds the twisted darkness inside me.
My downfall begins with a single night of untamed passion leaving me hungering for more of him.
One wicked soul recognizing another.
Now he owns me.
The lines of what I know are blurred.
I’m playing his game.
A pawn, eternally tangled in a web of secrets and lies.
He won’t let me go.
Taking pleasure in my fall from grace.
Question is, can I save myself before I’m damned completely?

Wow, this was a fantastic read for me….. dark, twisted, depraved, violent and paranormal on top of all that, just brilliant!!
Mavi is a female assassin working on the side of Good, trying to keep the balance in the world whilst working for Gabriel. She’s top notch at what she does, killing is her thing, torturing even more so, she relishes the blood. There’s a darkness in her, a music that comes to her mind when she’s on a killing spree, she’s a force to be reckoned with.
Max is a suave and handsome stranger with glittering emerald eyes with a darkness in him that Mavi just can’t ignore, it calls to her, and she gets lost in it and the sexual passion that ignites between them. But there is something more to Max than meets the eye, he’s not just a regular demon, he’s someone she loses her soul to!
A fantastic dark and twisted read, I loved it, with an ending that I just didn’t see coming! There’s a whole host of side characters that each make this story just that little bit more. It’s a full on and fast paced read, never a dull moment with lots of violence and steam. Quite a unique concept that I found refreshed and intriguing with some great world building and brilliant characters throughout. Looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
