(Bad Things #1)
Publication Date: June 28th 2016
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?
Let me start this review off with saying that I am absolutely in love with this cover. I can’t even describe why exactly. If I had a book shelf I would totally get The Devil In Disguise as a paperback just to showcased the cover on it.
Then I’m so glad Cynthia Eden is finally back in the paranormal romance world. I wasn’t that impressed by her last few suspense romances. Also I really like the take she took with these books. Instead on the good paranormal creatures, she decided to go with the bad ones. Though I have to say, sorry but they weren’t that bad, at least not the creatures.
The characters were bad/evil (whatever you want to call it) for the first half, but I felt like they lost some of their badness in the latter half. Note: I said some, not all of it ;). Nonetheless I still liked them all a lot and I really liked Luke’s attitude and Mina for being so scared of her bad flaws. Hilarious.
My favourite character though: Leo, Luke’s twin. I can’t really put my finger on the why, but I liked him the most and would like to see a book about him in the near future. Also Luke’s two best friends need books. The next one will be Julien’s. Yay! Can’t wait for it to come out in September.
I don’t know if I still have to say anything about Cynthia Eden’s writing style. I’m a sucker for her books, therefore I like her writing style – a lot.
