THE DEVIL'S BEAUTY
by Airicka Phoenix
Dimitri Tasarov has never had a choice in what he was. From infancy, he had been raised with the knowledge that he was a monster, an unlovable creature without a soul, until a single act of kindness threw his entire world into a tailspin.
Ava Emerson had always led a reluctantly sheltered existence. Friendship was a luxury that came with questions she couldn’t afford to answer.
They were an unlikely pair. He lived behind his mask and his roses, and she lived behind her secrets, yet they shared a bond that could get them killed if anyone ever found out.
Times were changing. The city was in turmoil. The weak were unprotected and someone needed to make a stand. But Dimitri wasn’t the only one with eyes on the north, or Ava, and they will stop at nothing to claim them both.
Can Dimitri keep Ava safe, or will the devil fall?
A story filled with passion and danger, this was an explosive read that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.
The chemistry between Ava and Dmitri was smoking hot and sparked with desire each and every moment they were together; even when they (or more accurately, he) were pretending there were no feelings involved. I loved getting glimpses into their past, being able to relive the special moments that brought them together and to watch their relationship develop from friendship into something more sensual and emotional. As much as Dmitri tried to deny that there was something between them, his actions, no matter how tiny, portrayed a completely different story.
Ava is one feisty character that one just cannot help loving. Her, somewhat, dramatic responses to certain situations was quite comical and added a lightness to a book filled with darkness. Having said that, this book stayed true to the very underworld it encapsulated, raw and gritty, some of the events that unfolded were quite scary and shocking, only adding to the authenticity.
With many twists and surprises, there was never a dull moment and I was enthralled the entire time. Phoenix is a masterful writer who captures the essence of her characters in much the same way she captures the attention and hearts of her readers, with perfection.
