Synopsis

Evi Devil.

Yes, that’s really my name.

The irony is not lost on me.

I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.
Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.

And why would I want to?

One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be clean from its murky hue.

No matter what they try to tell me happened in my past, my mind denies me access, therefore how can I know it’s true?

How can I believe that’s what I’m born from?

Glimpses of my past haunt me, the screams of terror echo in the silent darkness of my memories, trying to remind me that my Mother went from room to room butchering our family.

I’ve learned from scars that I suffered abuse and that my Father and siblings weren’t my Mother’s only victims.

Hearing what they tell me.

Reading the words printed in the papers. None of it can prepare me for what’s to come.

My biggest lesson is learning that some memories we suppress for a reason.

Grace Review

Holy mind fuck, Batman! My head hurts.

Yes, that’s how I felt after finishing this book.
This isn’t a story you can skim, because honestly, you will be completely lost. As the reader, we are essentially following the one person’s stream of conscious, and they are struggling with answers. So, pay attention while reading.

Not everything is as it seems.
Evi Devil is lost.
Are her thoughts just dreams, her imagination, or memories?
It takes a while to decipher all that’s going on in her head.

What we do know is that something awful happened to Evi’s family. The who’s and what’s are not clear.

“I closed my eyes twelve years ago in this yard and woke up on the wrong side of reality.”

This story is about Evi’s path to find out the truth. To uncover the memories, she has suppressed. And that ultimately begins with her return home. That is where she reconnects with a childhood friend, Max.

The heat between Evi and Max is undeniable. This is the first book I’ve read from the author, and man oh man, can she write some hot scenes. They are raw, dirty, lustful.

Beyond the intense passion this couple share, they also understand one another. There were times it was clear that Evi had some mental issues. Whether she wasn’t insane or just traumatized, I wasn’t sure. However, despite her crazy actions around Max, she didn’t seem to chase him away. And that spoke volumes.

“We’re the wild flowers, Evi. Unpredictable, untamable, and unstoppable.”

I’ll be honest. I had some suspicions about what happened in Evi’s past, but the author still managed to surprise me with the reveal.

“The monsters ravaged and ruined me so I became one.”

This author is known for her dark work, and this book isn’t any different. No unicorns and rainbows in sight. But if you are a dark romance lover and enjoy the author toying with your mind, this one is worth checking out.
