Can I just say that was A LOT of HOT in a short amount of pages... It didn’t take long to read, and I may have re-read it right after I finished because I loved it so much! K.I. Lynn is an author who never disappoints me. And this was no exception. As short and sexy as this story was, there was actually a story, and one I really enjoyed!

Jared has a lot on his plate. His mom isn’t well, and he co-owns his business with his evil ex. When it all gets to be to much, he does something he doe

Ack!! What did I just read??

This novella takes ridiculousness to a whole new level. I wish I could tell what the story is all about but I can't. You know why? It doesn't have a story.

I'm not kidding. It's basically just about two people who have sex. And not even hot sex. It's the kind of sex that a 14-year old horny boy would probably find hot. To me, it was just eye-roll inducing.

The whole novella is told through Jared's POV, which absolutely does nothing for me because it felt like I was r

Wow. Really? I don't know if this was written by a grown up or a horny teen boy!


Hero goes to church to pray for mom who is dying of cancer. While praying he sees this young girl that gives him an instant boner so hard that he has to literally run into the nearest restroom and jerk off. He comes so hard he sprays cum all over the sink, mirror, and floor.

Really dude?! You're in church for crying out loud!

That was the begin of the end for me. This book was pure lust at first

Wow, I loved this novella and can't wait for the full version to be released! This was intense and scorching HOT! The MCs are Jared and Hope and they are set upon each other like two souls possessed, whether by the hand of God or the Devil is uncertain, though they do meet in church.

The story is told from Jared's POV and I loved it. He's a bit of a filthy-mouthed, bad boy, but he works hard (running a gym with his mega bitch ex, so that has to change)! And he lives with and cares for

I find the discussion of prayer and religion interesting in books... either it can sometimes overwhelm the story and defeat the purpose of its introduction to it... or if done with understanding of the readers... it can give comfort. In this tale by K.L. Lynn... she used it as a force to be reckoned with... and the questions posed were very interesting indeed.

First, huge props for us being in our main character's head all of the time. Jared is a

This was my first K.I. Lynn book and I loved it! This was one HOT and racy little number. Even though this was a short story, there was a STORY and it took it’s time letting the climax build and simmer between the MCs – Jared and Hope. I read this in one sitting and really connected quickly with both characters.

I also enjoyed that this was told from Jared’s POV yet, it focused a lot on the intense lust and attraction he felt for a complete stranger. I loved the devil theme th

I enjoyed Ms. K.I. Lynn's Breach series and was looking forward to reading this one, and a bonus that it's under a male POV, for a change. The blurb and cover is hot, BUT sad to say, that's about it. :(

The story started off like this: Jared woke up and rushed to church to pray for strength and guidance and for his mom's health and saw this lady that gave him a hard on, like yeah, his mom could be dying and his problem was his dick or boner. He goes to the church's washroom and jerk himself off..

I'm clearly in the minority here, but I'm sad to say that I didn't enjoy the story.
I don't usually like when erotica tries to have a story. If I want a book with a story, I'll get a book with a story. If I want erotica, I don't want any story getting in my way from one sex scene to the next. Usually I prefer story over sex, but I know what I'm getting into when I read erotica. That's why I was surprised that there was so much story. It had a boring plot line that dragged a bit for me.

I wanted to hear her screams bouncing off the stone walls, mark her with my come. Taint her innocence, then fuck her all over again. A roar ripped through me, every muscle strained to the limit.

5 panty melting stars!

This novella packed one heck of a punch. My panties didn't just melt, they combusted with how turned on I was reading about Jared and Hope. The first part of this book was the hottest....Jared pleasuring himself was probably my favorite part.

You want to know why I love KI Lynn's work so much?


That women can write a dirty talker like no other!! This was a great start to new series and I can't wait to read about Hope and Jared.
The excitement took a while to happen, then couple of pages later the book ended. Needed more substance to it.

**ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review by the girls and I at **

I really enjoyed
this book - especially since I personally seem to struggle with shorter
stories. This one actually didn't try to
jam so much in - making the relationship between Jared and Hope feel believable
and real. The only issue that kept me
from rating this book higher, was the "location" of some of the sex
scenes. Others may agree with me on
this, or be offended - I truly tried not
The title of this quickie read and the blurb had me intrigued and I felt like this...

The Devil in Me is a nice blend of sweet and steamy!

It may seem strange to use the word sweet when talking about an erotic story but Ms. Lynn did a wonderful job of showing Jared's compassionate side. Seeing his interactions with his mom, his sister, and even his employees allowed me to see that he wasn't only concerned with his...*ahem* ;)

The Devil in Me was a pleasure to read. Jared's sighting of Hope and subsequent mission to get her into his life was entertaining, to say the least. I enjoyed

Review for THE DEVIL IN ME by K I LYNN – 3.5 Stars

‘Every part of me wants to devour her, touch every part of her body with mine’

Jared is drowning in stress. His mother is very ill, his bitchy ex is driving him nuts and he’s looking at ways to dissolve his business relationship with her. Jared is a nice guy, but all this stress leads to a frustrated Jared missing out on a bit of the old hanky panky so he has to rely on a bit (well,a lot ) of hanky wanky. That’s a lot of wanking in so few pages
So good, very hot, loved the Devil/God/possessed theme. Dirty mouthed hero with a good side. Great book.

I know its a novella but all that happened is the guy was aroused 80% of the time, and jerked off the other 20%. That's all.
