Dancing with Devia

A man ends up on death row, awaiting his execution by lethal injection, all because of Devia.

Devia could be called 'a devil woman.' She’s looking for a man she can manipulate and control.

What she wants, she gets.

Stephanie Marshall
Dancing with Devia it is one crazy good book. Jullian never even realizes that one innocent meeting with a woman named Devia at a car show had the potential to send him and his life on a whirlwind of unpredictable circumstances with horrible consequences.
I enjoyed the way that the story is told, from the point of Jullian looking back to explain to us how he ended up where he is at this time.
He was a man that went from believing he had it all, a loving wife, two amazing children and a career tha

Viveca Benoir likes the crazy...she writes books that get under your skin, make you sweat and shout at your kindle. We met Julian and the sisters in Matt: The Beginning and I just knew trouble was ahead for them. I wanted to lock Devia away for what she did to innocent people and how she absolutely was gleeful as she ruined lives.
This book was suspenseful, sexy and will make you hate this woman (and feel so bad for her twin sister in the process).
As with this author's other books the ending will

Good guy gets screwed by 'crazy bad bitch' in every sense of the word. A sort of modern 'Fatal Attraction' without a bunny being boiled. The main difference being he, like all guys, hasn't a clue she's hitting on him and hunting him down. Good plot twists.
If the book shows how women think then its enough to put men off women entirely. Easy to read. Not as complicated or dark as To Murder Matt or Matt - the beginning. A good simple read. Can read it in one sitting. I shall read other books of Vi

Well damn! That was insanely amazing! Poor Julian had no idea what he got himself into with Devia. Completely, twisted & kick ass is this read! I couldn't put it down from the go! A MUST READ!! ...more

Devia is definitely short for deviant as this lady is one fruit loop short of a complete box. Having set her eyes on an unsuspecting victim she plots her way to ruining his life, leaving him on death row for crimes she committed. She is a crazy and totally obsessed bitch that will literally stop at nothing to get what she wants - Julian. No boundaries, no morals she is a woman on a mission and I found myself laughing at some of the absurd behaviour she displayed. I also shook my head in disbelie ...more

This book totally blew me away! I loved how twisted Devia was and the lengths she went to so she could get her own way were unreal! The storyline kept me totally hooked and I was shocked with every chapter that passed.

Julian is sitting on death row and can't believe his life has turned out this way, he then tells his story of how he ended up there. Devia is totally obsessed with Julian and fantasises about them being together and this is how the start of the reign of terror begins for Julian.

What a wicked book in every sense, wicked as in cool and wicked as in nasty. Devia works flat out to get the man of her dreams. She ‘bulldozers’ over every one, and anyone in her way. Everyone is a perceived threat to her.
The hapless clueless guy is a pawn in her chess game of life. Viveca Benoir brings to life a character as hateful and awful as Matt in her other books.
Do we applaud Devia for going after what she really wants? Or do we condemn her for thinking he’s worth it? This is your chanc

I haven't read a book quite this intense in a while. I'm going to go ahead and assume her name was supposed to be devious or devil because she was both.

I wanted to be sympathetic with Crystal but I couldnt, she was acting like a shrew when Julian hadn't really given her a reason to doubt him. If there's one thing I hate it's paranoid women that don't have the patience to listen to someone who they claim to love. If Julian had cheated on her before I'd cheer her on but as it happens he hadn't so

What a fantastic read! I loved every minute of this book

Devia - devious, dastardly and bloody brilliant at the same time. Julian has no idea what has hit him when a one chance meeting with Devia whilst at a Antique Car Museum, manages to turn his life upside down.

This is full of twists and so engrossing that I couldn't put it down! The ending ... Wow even I am t left thinking who is it really?

Brilliant book and I am loving Viveca Benoir, can't wait to read more from her.

I didn't like this book as much as I liked To Murder Matt and Matt the beginning. Devia is really evil and won't stop until she gets what she wants. I couldn't believe the things she was capable of doing. A twisted story that you will not want to put down. ...more

Another fantastic dark and twisted tale by Viveca Benoir. I was hooked from the start and had to keep reading to find out if Devia was going to get what she deserved and I was a little shocked at just how evil she was prepared to get to get what she wants
