Deal With The Devil by Cynthia Eden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Eric Pate is used to making his own rules—as the director of the PARA Unit, he is the boss. Everyone rushes to obey his commands, and no one knows his secrets. No one ever gets too close to him. But then he meets her.
Ella Lancaster is tired of being a prisoner. She escaped one hell just to find herself in another, but Eric doesn’t consider her containment with his agents as punishment. He actually thinks it is a form of protection. But Eric is so very wrong. Ella doesn’t need protecting, not for anyone or anything.
But when the PARA Unit comes under attack, Ella and Eric both find themselves battling a supernatural beast that they never expected. Forced to join forces, to make a deal, Ella and Eric are soon fighting side-by-side, and their attraction for each other can’t be contained or controlled. Hot. Wild. Consuming. Ella’s deal with her devil is soon taking over her life.
And as Eric falls deeper and deeper under the mysterious Ella’s spell, his legendary control begins to crack. The beast that he has kept chained so carefully inside rises to the surface. Unfortunately, when the devil loses his control…there is real hell to pay.
I have been waiting for Eric's story for so long. He starts out in this series as a person with a stone cold personality but as this series has progressed we see him opening up more and more. In this story his legendary control and facade crack wide open. I was so excited to learn what he really is and am still wondering what all he is. But I've learned as I read Cynthia's books that we learn bits and pieces as we go. Yes this one is a standalone story but it's made more enjoyable if you've read the others.
And man Ella is one of my very favorite heroines of this author. With her history I can understand that when she says no more she means it. She is also quite capable of standing up to Eric which is what he needs. He's not going to be able to control her at all.
Also seeing all the secondary characters from previous books was fantastic. Was nice seeing how some of them have some of them have got on after their books.
I give this book 5 stars and was given this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. Here's hoping that there are more books in this world.
