I was light, and I was pure. Until I wasn’t..
I’m Millie Hart, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve dedicated my life to my Catholic faith. It was a part of me every step of the way. So when I decided to join a nunnery, no one in my family was surprised. I’m not sure at what point my life changed or where it went extremely wrong. My nightmares are becoming realitie

Wow! Where do I even start with this one? As my friend Alicia said, this book was a hot mess.

I told myself I would read this one last book in 'The Devil's Own' series, since I was so curious about how things worked out for Millie at the end of book two. This author has a way of hooking me with an ending that leaves me wanting more...even after reading a book that is mediocre, at best. It is quite incredible really.

Not this time though. Des

Oh man did I enjoy this one more than I thought I would. I wasn't sure at the beginning. I felt a little like I should know who all these people are (this says it can be read as a standalone) but soon I was sucked in and turning the pages.


It had SO many things I usually dislike in a book, but strangely none of that bothered me in the least whilst reading this one. The writing was fabulous. The pace was fantastic. I liked Raze. I liked Millie. It had some interesting secondary characters as well.

Holy Smokes!! I'd like to start this off by saying that I NEED BOOK 2 NOW!!!!

I've been following Amo Jones since her first book, Perilous Love. After reading that, I knew this author had some serious cojones. I knew that she would be an incredible addition to my favourite genre: dark/romantic suspense. This book, if no other, should launch her into stardom. She freaking nailed it with this series and has me clamoring for more. I love Beast, Hella and now Raze.

Now I expect that there will be crit

First things first I have to say that I loved the first two books of this series, I mean like REALLY LOVED them. I think Amo Jones did a fantastic job on those but this just went left of field.

So I think this is going to be one of those books that you either love or hate. I am very sad to say it just did not do it for me. I was expecting something else entirely and what I got was way OTT and unrealistic, I have said it in the past the content does not matter but to me a read has t

Ah, *deep sigh* i'm slightly disappointed :(

Not what I wanted.
Not what I expected.
Certainly not what I got in the end.

So, this story started as dark and very promising

Millie was kidnapped, trained (even though, in my opinion, in a mild-ish tortureous way) by 7 highy dangerous and deadly men of a fraction that performs extreme actions or whatevr it takes to seal the deal...and Tripp/Raze being the OOO agent, the one born and raised to be the executioner and the one in cha

I couldn't connect to this story or the characters. The dialogue was unrealistic and everything was over the top.

Even though this book can be read as a standalone, I don't recommend it. There are a lot of characters and events mentioned from the previous books that made me feel like I was missing something.

I am very emotionally unstable from the ending so my review will come soon. But I will say, this book blew me away. Good isn't even the right word, especially when Raze is so deliciously bad.

Holy fuck, what did I just read?!

Dark, sinister, confusing, twisted, unexpected… yeah, these words do not do justice to this, my first read by this author. This is the third book in the series, but I didn’t know that going in, so it felt a bit like walking into a party that had started hours ago. However, this story was all Millie and Tripp so it certainly worked as a standalone. And what a story it was. I had no idea what I was getting into, no idea whatsoever.

Aww, how this novel was intriguing and wonderful and yet increasingly smutty and disturbing!

I was not expecting it to be a part 1 in a duet or series but after reading that ending I demand more! More!! Amo!! <3

Holy all that is dark and lustful!! This book was so nasty and wrong on so many levels (I mean come on...a nun who is broken down and made absolutely filthy for revenge) but I really loved it (when I wasn't biting my nails and holding my breath). When I read the teaser at the end of Hellraiser I was so excited and anxious for this book and it delivered in spades. For such a sweet young thing, Amo Jones can sure write some depraved and sick stuff...with a healthy dose of family drama mixed up wit ...more

Now where should I really start and end but I guess I'm just going to throw it out there and say that I LOVED IT to a point that despite this book you will never guess the gruesome and gritty of it, but this author surprised me at how well she could put together a story that you hated but learned to love at the same time.

For me, "The 6" I'm so curious about them and how far their story would go, I thought I was going to love or hate them but all in all I know that I can't wait f

When you read a book that blows you away on every level, you bow down to that author and applaud her awesomeness. Amo killed this book. This may just be the best book I have EVER read!! I don't say that lightly either. I had planned to read at least one more book tonight after I finished this,but I can't do it. I am ruined from this book hangover. I have to savor this one.

This book was EVERYTHING!! It is not only the darkest book I've ever read, but it makes you feel. You will feel heartache .

Holy fucking shit .. seriously I have no words Amo is a word genius .. I totally loved every minute of this book and can't wait for part 2 .. Raze/Tripp at the beginning I didn't like him much but then I saw his true colours when it came to Millie and I totally fell in love with him yes he is a cold hearted bastard towards others but not Millie I believe deep down he loves her even though he denies it .. I thought Hella was a dominant alpha male but he has nothing on Raze .. I had a feeling that ...more

I have really enjoyed this series and Razing Grace Part One just keeps the momentum going. Although this book can be read as a standalone, it is tied somewhat to the first two books. I suggest that you start with them before you read Razing Grace. You won’t feel lost but if you are like me, and want to know the full backstory, then you’ll want to start at the beginning.

Millie Hart has devoted her life to the Catholic faith and is a Nun for her attending church. She has always been the good girl,

Cause once you start you won't want to put it down!
This book blew me away, it's dark, deadly and such an amazing story.

The story of Millie will break your heart, make you think, make you feel all the way through.
This one is not for the faint hearted, you need strength to get through this story without breaking for Millie!

Raze is a man of many names.He is a heartless,soulless killer who would not blink an eye before killing anybody.

Millie on the other hand is a sweet,innocent,virgin nun.who has been kiddnaped.


What's that noise?

Oh yes, it's my heart thudding in my ears and trying to explode out of my rib cage. Dramatic? well that was one drama filled read by Amo Jones.

Raze is a man of many names, The executioner,000,Tripp,Kingpin he's the God of all that's dark in the underground world and it takes a nun to grace his world to soften this hard dangerous beast of a man.

I am still in shock of what I just finished reading! This book just goes to show how incredibly talented and amazing this author is what how she puts exactly what she wants you to see in writing. I envisioned ever single sick detail of what went on during this book that left me so fascinated it scared me. When we last heard from Millie she was just taken from her sister and the Devil's Due MC; what happened to Melissa's nun sister, I for one was terrified to know.

Holy hell! This freaking book had me all worked up. I mean i've read books where I morally struggled with the content. But this book blurs the lines between right and wrong. It's dark, angsty and so freaking sexy.

There aren't really enough words to describe how much I loved this book. The darkness, the hurt, the angst, the love, the crazy...pretty much every emotion you can think of is in this book. And Amo Jones puts you through the ringer.
Amo has a way of taking sick, twisted and dirty to a whole new level. Throughout this book I could feel the crazy that Amo was trying to portray. I could feel her taking me on a journey through the most effed up version of a love story I've ever read. I could break do

Holy mother of god , this book was so unexpected .
From the first page this book pulled me in and intrigued me , I am so glad that I had found this author to fill my addiction of these stories .

In order to read this book I do highly suggest that you read the first two books in this series , so you have the knowledge of everyone who was introduced in book one and two . I thought beast and Heller were bad , this book completely blew that out of the water for me .

This book is absolutely twisted ,

Amo Jones is by all means sitting up there as an outstanding Author that must be on everyone's to be read list.

I am not a reader that normally reads MCS, gruesome books, but holy hell Amo's work is Amazing.

Razing Grace is the start of this series and can be read as a stand alone but you seriously need to read the first two books of The Devils own series, not just so you will get a better understanding of who everyone is and the backing of the storyline but because you will g

Wow!!! Sweet Jesus.
I thought Hella and Melissa had a dark phsyco relationship but they have nothing on Tripp/Raze and Millie. I don't think dark is a strong enough word to use to describe this book. I didn't like Raze in the beginning but that change the more I read. She slowly opened his eyes and changed him. Millie's world was light she was a Freaking Nun. She held onto her beliefs and innocence until taken from her. Raze's world was all dark, raised in a world to

Read on behalf of a Book Lovers Emporium.

This story has got to be up there on my list of most twisted stories ever read. It's intense, twisted and its absolutely brilliant and involves everything possible, sex, blood, bodies, love, laughter. Every emotion possible was experienced during my time reading this book.

Whilst you can read this as a standalone, it's actually book 3 of the Devils Own Series, so whilst you don't have to read it, it is probably better if you do so you gain some insight i
