“You can put that man in a suit, but he'll never be tame." 
One look at Jericho Forge and I knew the rumors were true. He was a predator, and he had set his sights on me.
I knew better than to bet more than I could afford to lose that night. I knew better than to bet myself. But desperation leads to bad decisions, and I thought there was no way I could lose.
I was wrong.

I enjoyed this...but I just don't think any March H will ever compare to Lachlan Mount for me...although Jericho is doing a decent job.

Loved the Seven Sinners shoutout, although that did just serve to remind me of Lachlan and Kiera and how much I love them...And how Jericho and India aren't them lol...

Anyway, I know I will still be dropping $10 to get the rest of the series (despite me saying I wouldn't be dropping $15 on a March series again). It feels steep, but at the end of the da

What do you want?”
One eyebrow rises. “From you? For $10 million? You should already know the answer to that.” The corners of his mouth lift until his expression is the picture of sheer triumph. “Every-fucking-thing.”


Sweet mother of ovaries, the woman did it again. Each time I think March wrote her best alpha yet, she outdoes herself with the next one. And Forge is sure to make ovaries flutter all over the world. Add into that one of the best heroines I've read in the longest

This sinfully seductive story was so good I absolutely could not put it down!! Meghan March is an amazing author. Her books always leave me reeling and clamoring for what might be coming next.

This was an amazing start to what I am sure is going to be an epic trilogy! I have always been a fan of Meghan March’s books... in fact I’m pretty sure that every book of hers I have read are all four and five stars! The heroes that she writes are always hard core alpha males, and very possessive about their women! That’s my favourite kind of hero!

Jericho Forge has absolutely won me over! He has charisma that radiates off the pages! His personality is larger than life and I literally felt his ev

India Baptiste is a skilled poker player playing the biggest hand of her life. Losing the game could mean losing someone very close to her. But when Jericho Forge enters the game, it could also mean losing her heart.

Jericho was an unapologetic jerk, and I loved that about him. If you know me, then you know that I love a ruthless hero that bows down to no one. And that describes Jericho perfectly. He saw what he wanted, India, and he went after

Deal with the Devil was my first read of 2019 and I couldn’t have picked a better book to start 2019 with! I hope all my reads are as awesome as this novel. Deal with the Devil was addictive! It is a book that I immediately wanted to pick back up after I put it down and it made me wish that real life wasn’t so busy. There were twists and turns and I’m sure that there will be many more. The ending was an unexpected cliffhanger that made me need the next part right now!

Deal With The Devil is book one in the Forge Trilogy, so I am going to wait to write a full review when I finish all three books.

So far, I am enjoying the story revolving around billionaire Jericho Forge and professional poker player, India Baptist. Forge tends to be an alpha-a**hole, but Indy can stand her ground. I cannot wait to jump into book 2 soon because of the lovely cliffy at the end of book 1. UGH!!!

1.6 stars

These last, four or something, trilogies of hers all feel the same for me. Every time there is a wannabe badass heroine, smart but naïve, beautiful but shy, sexy but inexperienced. And the asshole bazillonaire dark alpha hero with whom people don’t mess around, if you know what I mean. They fear him, envy him, they want to either fuck him or kill him, or, like in heroine’s case, both.

Scenery is changed, plot transformed to something different and yet the same, characters changed their

In true Meghan March fashion, Deal with the Devil has captivated me with a mysterious and dangerous hero, a independent heroine, and plot with an ending that has my screaming “what is going on?”. I need book two ASAP!

Jericho is just everything I love about a March hero. He is sexy as heck, dangerous with his need for vengeance, and seductive with his dominance and care for our heroine. Meghan March gives readers just enough to care about

I read this book when it first came out and this book has stayed with me since. Jericho and Indy stole my breath away. Their relationship started from a card game that Indy was in to to save her sister who was kidnapped. Jericho told Indy that he would help get her sister back if she would marry him. Indy would do anything for her sister. You will need to read this story to see what I mean because I fell in love with this couple and I think that you will too.

I now understand why readers adore Meghan March. She writes captivating contemporary romance wonderfully; her heroes are dark, dangerous and enigmatic; and her heroines are sassy, witty and intelligent. Deal with the Devil, from untold secrets, unpredictable events and abrupt turns, will have your entire, undivided attention.

India Baptiste is on a mission to win. She needed this game more than ever. She made the rules and invited players she knew that she can beat. She's a hustler in a game of poker. But she didn't expect the arrogant, mysterious, sexually attractive man named Jericho Forge to be in her table.

When Jericho Forge walks in a room he commands respect. Everyone seems to be afraid of him. Gatecrashing a game of high stake poker almost, if not all, rattled everybody. Including the sexy, smart, and beautifu

“The Kraken?” Forge’s entire body shakes as booming laughter tumbles from his lips. But I’m not looking at his lips. I’m still watching his dick as it bobs when he laughs. It’s also getting bigger. “Are you going to look at my face or just stare at my dick?” “I’ve seen your face before,” I tell him, not looking up. I got caught staring; I might as well make the most of it. When a navy towel with a silver monogram suddenly covers the object of my attention, I’m forced to glance up . . . at the most beautiful grin that has ever crossed a man’s face.
