“There are some who can live without wild things, and there are those who cannot.” -Aldo Leopold
This book, Devils Breath, really surprised me with how much I really enjoyed it. I think we have all come to expect the same storylines from romance novels no matter what genre they fall into. This was a romantic suspense, femme fatale type romance. Devils Breath was fresh and new for me and I was pulled into the book immediately. Cover to cover Cassius, Sera, and Raine kept me on the edge of my seat. It was a wild thrill ride from start to finish and the ending was great. I really like the main characters from the start. Sera’s journey within herself, from caged, monstrous, ice queen, with ultimate control, made by her father, to the warm, welcoming, emotional woman she really was just looking for someone to show her what love really means was pretty powerful after everything she’d had to endure her entire life. Cassius with his stoicism, and endless patience but ruthlessness when needed made him very endearing to me as a reader. No one in real life is perfect, everyone is fighting some type of battle we know nothing about. The author made the characters so real and human I felt like they could jump off the page. There were even a few times in the book that made me laugh and giggle while reading it. The author’s ability to stitch all of that together was flawless and everything came together very well. 5 thumbs up for Devils Breath. I would definitely recommend giving it a try especially if your tired of that same old romance troupe.
