“There are no heroes in this story. Only devils”.

If someone had told me that when I first started this book that the outcome was going to be completely different than what I was expecting, I would’ve told them that they’re wrong and that they need to start taking their meds. But as of right now, I feel like I need to be put on MEDS! What was that?!! No seriously. I’m trying so hard right now not to type a lot of f bombs but FUCK.ME This was some next shit right here!!

’CARDS OF LOVE: THE DEVIL’ Is a prelude novel in the cards of love collection, by new to me author Ashley Jade. Dual POV. MMF, MF

I really have no idea what I've just read, devoured it really, it was all kinds of f#cked up, beyond hot, just when you think the story is going to go one way it takes a one sixy turn and everything changes. Easy to get into hard to put down, I read this in no time at all.

If you’ve read this author before then you already know when you pick up an Ashley Jade book you just don’t know what you’re in for. Throw in a title like The Devil and you know for sure all bets are off.

The Devil is a story of unrequited love, of betrayal, a trust that’s not easily given and so carelessly shattered and an intense, all consuming need for revenge. There is no hero, there are no good guys here. Just an innocent who’s too love struck to see the truth until someone forces them to f

This is the first book I have read from this author; however, it definitely won't be the last. This was my Pick-for-Me Challenge book for January 2019 and was picked for me by the lovely Robin. I knew nothing about this book. Isn't it funny how that works? I am not a blurb reader by any means really. Most of my book recommendations come from my friends saying...'hey, read this book, you'll like it.' Most of the time, depending on who it is, I shrug and say, 'okay, if you think I'll like it.'

I don't know where to start. This book deserves more than 5 stars.

This was one of the most intense, gripping, page turning books I have ever read. The author sucks you down this deep, dark hole with no chance of escape. You will feel every single word so deep in your soul and will find yourself begging for more and praying for it to stop all at once. If you're looking for picnics in the park and wine with friends, you're in the wrong place. But if you're looking for a soul crushing, heart wrenc

I am all over about this book. My emotions are........... I don't know. This book will have you going in so many directions you'll be so dizzy you'll think you were on a carnival ride. But oh how fun that ride is. Although at times you'll be equal parts turned on and angry as he** with the things going on.
This book is The Devil, but it's the Preview for The Devil’s Advocate, another book to come. And oh my Gods do I want that book to get here.

What the fuck did I just read? I have no idea but holy effing shit. I went into The Devil blind and I didn't expect a single thing that happened to actually happen. When you think you know something you're thrown another curveball.

Do me a favor and read this book!!! Go in blind - don't read the blurb or any spoilers and just read it.

Loved these quotes:

The Devil is a story that takes everything you expect from a romance and flips it on its ass. My heart is in pieces, my panties are ruined. I couldn't get enough.
Is it too soon to reread?

I freaking loved it. One sitting I read this in, because it was impossible to put down.

The pace was excellent, the story was totally mind blowing, and the character development was absolute perfection!

Dark? Check.
Sexy? Check check check check check.
Heartbreakingly and devilishly good? Check!

My mind is still blown still from reading this last night, I stayed up way later than any responsible parent of a two-year-old should have - but I couldn't put this book down. I haven’t binge read a book like this in a long time. As soon as this book hit my kindle, I dove in and I didn’t move from my reading spot until I read the last page. I swear I hardly even blinked, afraid I’d miss something. Okay, that's not completely true, I *may* have given my sleeping husband an a

Cards of Love: The Devil by Ashley Jade
5 stars!!!

“There are no heroes in this story. Only devils.”

Ashley Jade is a new to me author and was introduced on the promise of a buddy read, said buddy went AWOL, but I forgive her. But…can I forgive this author for leaving me hanging? The Devil is a prelude to a book due out next month called The Devils Advocate, one book that I will be desperately waiting for and reading the minute it hits my kindle.

What a ride! I love the writings of Ashley, doesn't matter what genre she writes in she grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go. This book has some major twists I didn't see coming.

You can feel the whole pain. I felt for Cain in the beginning, everything he had encountered, the knowing Damiens backstory I was wow!! Put them two together it was a huge dynamic duo you can say!!

This story damn! I already knew I was going to hell but if the devil is waiting for me then I may rush my trip down. This shit makes a sinner out if a saint with how dirty it is, you may need a shower or two just to feel clean again after reading this. It's hard to leave a review when you want to tell just spell out every sordid detail.

The Devil was one thrilling, exciting and hot ride. I had so much fun with all the twists and turns Ashley Jade threw at me. What can I say except The Devil had me hooked and glued to the pages. I’m a little obsessed with Damien and Cain. The game they’re playing was so much fun. In a very erotic, dark and twisted way. I just held on for the ride. I’m so excited that there’s a sequel cause these two and their antics could go on for awhile. They’re a team but on opposite sides. The

HELL FUCKING YES! Go on and send me straight to hell, I'm gonna need some alone time with the devil. We have plotting to do.

“I’m pretty sure we’re going to hell.”
“I own a timeshare there.” He flashes me a quick evil grin as he shifts the car into drive. “The weather’s beautiful this time of year.”

Just take everything you think you know and toss it out the window. Author Ashley Jade brings a mix tape of twistedness, a burned CD of violence & eroticism, an epic playlist of wicked seduction.

If you want a hot and dirty book, with a whole lot of mindfuck on the side, well, why haven't you bought The Devil yet?

Because this book has it all. Mystery, suspense, intrigue, sexy times....

Yes. The Devil has it all.

And it's mindblowing. Seriously. My mind has practically exploded this book is so good. I was never sure what would happen, wasn't sure who I was rooting for, wasn't sure of anything.
And that was so much fun and refreshing and I loved the suspense of it all.

Jackie Fire and Ice Book Reviews (blog)
With an Ashley Jade book, I can always expect a journey unlike any other… And with The Devil, I got one… except, it was a dirty ride where I needed to hold on tight.

Twisty, sexy, and everything I needed. The Devil set my panties ablaze, and took me on one hell of a mind-f*ck.

It’s sexy. It’s steamy. It’s… perfect, and it’s one of the best books I’ve read in 2018.

Go in blind and prepare for a hot, dirty, and wickedly delicious ride.

Hell is calling, and trust me, you want to answer.

What in the world did I just read?!! Omg! This book is insanely good! This story kept me on the edge of my seat so much that I read it in one sitting! Cain and Damien’s unique friendship just makes you want to know more about them. And then throw in Eden, Cain’s Stepdaughter, into the mix and you just think to yourself, what the heck! And just when you think you know what’s happening, then this author throws you a curveball. Not to mention the fact that this is one very steamy, sexy, panty melti ...more

Ashley Jade has brilliantly woven a tale of lust and deception. Her characters are sexy and flawed. What you think is one thing, becomes entirely something else.

A web of lies and seductions that start in the past. Cain, Eden and Damien are linked by a thread that binds them together, yet will ultimately lead to their downfall. Money, power, greed and sex feed this insatiable piranha. Lives are at stake, fates hang in the balance. What happens is only know in the faces of the tarot.

OMG, WOW JUST WOW. I was blown out of the water with The Devil. I have read many books of M's Jade's and without a doubt this book is her best to date and she has written some awesome books. Cain, Damien and Eden, oh my, what fantastic, intrigueing characters. The depth in which we get to know them is so intimate and raw. Their layers are peeled back slowly and the way they tick unravels right before our eyes.
No stone is left unturned when introducing Cain, Damien and Eden. The chemistry betwee

Holy Shit! We’re not in Kansas anymore!

I feel like I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole.. only it’s the really dark, dirty and f—-ing raw rabbit hole!

This book was on fire from the warning the author puts at the beginning and it got hotter the farther in. Don’t be scared but make sure you pay attention to the warning.

The Devil is scandalous and yummy all rolled into these pages.

This book is insane! I mean I knew it was taboo and dark and not smoochy smoochy but jeeze this is twisted!! This is not a book for the faint hearted I tell you that! Want rainbows and sunshine? Not this book! Hearts and flowers? Keep walking! But if twisted and deranged is your forte then you the right place so enjoy the ride!
Would Cain and or Damien be my book boyfriend? He'll no! I'm not that crazy!

Well done Ms. Jade! *slow clap*


WOW. What a crazy ride! It’s kinda MF, kinda MM (more MM than MF), with some MFM scenes. Confused yet? Me too. But until I read the next book, it's really hard to classify it because IDK what the hell is going on.
