I thought leaving her in that room covered in her attacker’s blood would teach her a lesson.

I thought she’d be more careful about her safety.

Little did I know that she’s seeking the pain and humiliation.

Well, it’s her lucky day, because pain is sort of my thing.

I can hurt her much more than she’s able to hurt herself.

The twist is we’ll both enjoy every second of it.

While as a fan I feel bittersweet about this series ending, I honestly believe that it goes out with a bang so to speak. I would highly recommend reading the series book sin order so that you can get the full impact of this story.

I have been dying, and I do mean DYING to get TJ story from the very beginning. There are so many questions I had about him, his live, his mental health (LOL) that I just could not wait to read about him and this story vindicated my wait! TJ is my new book husband and

Loved this series and Dancing With The Devil, TJ's story will not disappoint, it is my favourite, but then again just the name TJ makes it a hit for me!

In this third book we see a different side to TJ but still get all the psycho badass, kinky knife action from him.

Of course it would take an extra special woman to draw his eye and Kaci is that special one, her self destruction and thirst for danger gets his blood pumping.

Dancing with the devil is well written, gripping, delivers dark secrets, v

Oh my goodness!! This series has been a trip! I’m devastated to see it come to an end but finally TJ gets his own book and man did this author give him his own twisted and depraved story. TJ and Kaci were two damaged souls, each had their own unique damage, but they just worked together. That ending!! I didn’t see that coming! This is a truly dark and powerful book. I can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us next since this series came to an end. I highly recommend this book!

I bloody love this series!! Firstly it brought me to this author. Secondly it's really diverse an you get a whole lotta somethin somethin goin on here, there, and everywhere! Thirdly, the characters, although a teeny tiny bit cray cray will worm their way in to your heart and have you wondering why the heck you like them let alone love them! Brilliant!

This is last in the series for now... and for now i will hold off on stalking down Ms James and forcing her to write everyone else's story!! Now!!

Blown out of the water with this read! TJ's book, his story is dark and twisted but there is someone for him that is into his particular type of kink and twisted ways. Just as broken and TJ, Kaci is the other part of him. The Ying to his Yang. They are the perfect pair, even if they are a bit mental (LOL). This book is extremely well written and if you like dark reads, well this one is for you because TJ will deliver the goods on that topic. His "kink" started when he was very young, lying benea ...more

Holy Moly what a fabulous twisted ride! The author has given us a very well written storyline centered around TJ, the youngest son of the original Raven’s Ruin MC’s Prez, Cowboy. The book will keep you mesmerized from start to finish with the outlandish, kinky actions of TJ and Kaci, as well as the ongoing activities of the MC.

TJ has a twisted need for blood and knife play. He thinks it dates back to when he was 6 years old and his mother was killed trying to protect him. Her blood covered him f

Dancing with the Devil (Ravin's Ruin book 4) by Marie James 5 Stars

This is book 4 of the Ravin's Ruin series. I highly suggest you read the books in order starting with Desperate Beginnings. This review may contain spoilers from the first three books. This series of books go in sequential order. The next book starts where the book before leaves off, each focusing on a different member of the Ravin's Ruin motorcycle club member. Marie James has a way of making each book unique in many ways and di

OMG, WOW. Just WOW. "Dancing With The Devil" is such a powerful book. You won't believe it, but two broken lives can make one very whole life & MAKE IT work. It will take a lot of work on both of their parts but after reading about TJ & Kaci, you know it can be one. This was the most moving book of he whole sries so far. I am so into motorcycle genre books & boy this took me over the top. We all know from the first couple of book that TJ has problems. A different girl every night, lo ...more

Ok lets just state the obvious, Marie James is a Goddess! If she writes it then you know without a doubt Im going to love it!
Ive been looking forward to TJ's story since the very 1st book. I knew he would take a special girl, a strong girl, someone to put him in his place yet someone that he could open up to and feel safe with. Someone who could share his very private lifestyle with. Someone who wouldnt run screaming when they learned his story and saw just how dark his thoughts were.

**RECEIVED ARC FOR HONEST REVIEW**
I knew it would take a girl just as broken as TJ to win his heart. Don't read this as a standalone but technically the way it is written you could. I don't recommend it. Start at the beginning because it really helps to understand everything TJ is talking about as well as the timeline.

The thing to really take from this deeply moving book is yes our histories, our lives make us but

I have to say that I’m a huge fan of the Cerebus MC series but if you have any illusions of this being a hero MC series, you need to reconsider. Book 4 is the story of the TJ who has been portrayed as a dark character in the prior books. This MC is dark and violent and has few redeeming qualities, but the characters are amazing and loyal, but they are rough around the edges.

I got to read the 4 books in the series back to back which is absolutely amazing. TJ is the enforcer of the club and he lov

There's no synopsis listed for Dancing with the Devil, and I'm not inclined to give a description either, as TJ's story is too darkly delicious not to going into blindly. So this review will be short & sweet on top of it so I don't accidentally give anything away. A big reason for that is there are twists upon twists that had so many of my f-bombs raining down, yeah, it was big time chaos. Next up is TJ has some demons that lead to some knife issues, and I really needed to know what drove hi ...more

I am not someone who ready dark and nitty gritty, so I wasn't sure what to expect with TJ. But holy mother of God did I love this book! It was the perfect amount of sweet, scary and hot!

I loved TJ in the other books, he was so interesting to me. Mostly because he was the craziest bad boy in the group, and I needed more. I did NOT expect what we found out about him and Kaci. From the beginning of their interactions he had me dying to know why he kept doing what he did. Then when they were togeth

Dirty gritty hot vicious sex. That's what you'll get with this one so if you are looking for touching romance might need a drink before reading this it.

The author digs down into the broken souls of two who shouldn't be right for anyone but are so right for each other. It just takes time, pain, blood and finding out about two broken lives. Tj looks for satisfaction from his knife, blood, and much more. Still, the women vie for him and take whatever he gives. It is always consensual. Kaci looks fo

After reading the other books in the serirs I have been waiting patiently for TJ's story. His darkness really intrigued me and i couldn't wait to see what type of Woman would knock him on his ass. I had so many questions about TJ. What had made him the man he was today?

I wasn't sure I was going to like TJ, yes I was intigued by him but he wasn't the type of guy I normally liked but oh I loved him, he made me swoon and thats not something I would have associated with him until now.

(4.5 stars)

In the previous book, we know that TJ did some club business and ended up becoming… a bit obsessed with Kaci. When TJ realizes that Kaci is in need of saving, he finds himself in a bit of a different position, for him that is. The last thing he would describe himself as is a white knight, but he is always making sure that Kaci is saved from whatever danger she has gotten herself into. When he decides enough is enough, he ends up taking her for her own good. In a sto

WOW! Just all the WOW! I am still, days after reading this, in awe of this amazing story! I am not even sure where to start with this review. I have been a huge fan of Marie James since I picked up the first book in her Cerberus series and have devoured every book since. She never fails to deliver a fantastic read full of sexy Alphas to swoon over. She just never disappoints.
I will admit that I was a bit reluctant to read this series as I was warned it was much darker than James' usual. And the

I never saw a title more fitting like this one, Dacing With the Devil is exactly what Kaci did with TJ.

If you remember TJ from the previous books, he is this bloddy guy who doesn't care for anyone, he barely cares for his family and he only does it because the club is FAMILY and there is nothing more important than loyalty.

"I don't like bleeding on the inside, Kaci. So, I'll bleed on the outside for you."

But for TJ Kaci is something more, she has something that he craves and soon he will find o

Dancing With The Devil is the third and final title in the Ravens Ruin MC series.

Whilst this title can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading the previous titles first.

The whole Ravens Ruin MC series is dark and raw, and you can add slightly psycho and twisted when it comes to TJ.

TJ is a complex and intriguing character. He's cold, heartless, deadly, depraved and vindictive. He has an affinity for blood and is more than a little bit kinky.

Appearances can be deceiving, TJ may be t

Marie James is the queen! I have been waiting for TJ's story and folks, right here it is.

We all know that TJ is a bit tapped. He uses and abuses and takes what he wants and his favorite toy is his trusty knife. Something that never lets him down. His world gets turned upside down when he sees a passed out beauty covered in blood in a frat house bedroom where a few boys have expired.

How is it that TJ finds someone more screwed up than him? Is it love at first sight, first bite or first blood draw

While most books and most subject matter doesn't usually bother me, I really wasn't sure how I'd feel about TJ's story and his particular kinks. Knowing this MC is not the MC of the "good guys", I couldn't even imagine where Marie James would take us with him. Not only that, despite how gorgeous he is and how all the club "women" want him, I couldn't even imagine that there'd be that woman that could invade his mind, heart and soul...that ONE. Whether or not Kaci IS that one remains to be seen ( ...more

So I am not going to lie TJ was not my favorite person as I was reading this series I honestly thought I was going to enjoy this book that much. I was completely wrong!!! TJ is by far my favorite out of all the guys he was not what you were expecting. I saw so much depth with these two characters I could not put this book down at all. Kaci was so hurt and broken but she was so sweet and kind and just everyone wanted to be around her. She didn't deserve the stuff that had happened to her. I loved ...more

I didn't know Marie James could go so dark. But I loved it. I have loved all of her leading men previously, so I expected the same with TJ. What I got from this book and this character is so much more than I imagined. He was dark and twisted in his mind, but he was also considerate and protective and just awesome.

Kaci was also a different kind of leading lady than what I'm used to from Marie James. Her past was horrific. Her present actions are so layered and complex. And so often my heart broke

OMG! Marie James’s books just keep getting better and better. This series was amazing!

TJ’s story was a perfect ending, but I do hope we get to read more about these characters in the future. TJ was certainly my favourite and will hold a special place in my heart and Book shelf.

Dancing with the Devil shows a whole new side to TJ. You get to know his thoughts, secrets, and an insight into his past and present. Which has intrigued me from first reading about him. Loved every minute!

If nothing else, this book will make you realize that you should NEVER judge someone. You don't know their life history and what they have been through. TJ and Kaci have each been thru so much. But when they come together it's scary. So scary that when they each share their story with the other, it even takes them aback. I love how the Cerberus MC are mentioned. So glad I've read that series and know how it effects this story! The Ravens Ruin MC series is not for the faint of heart! It's an eye ...more

I don't even know where to start. I guess I'll start with saying Dancing with the Devil was a great story, it was well written with a strong plot that was filled with so many feelings. It'll keep you on the edge. It's somewhat dark, twisted and more. Kaci and TJ were strong characters, both have been a lot in their lives especially TJ. Kaci and TJ both were drawn to each other, they had a pull, a connection that was strong, and the chemistry was sexy. Their relationship may have been intense but ...more

TJ grew up with a sick and twisted father. He held his mother while she died. He became the sick and twisted. Kaci grew up with so much expected of her, until tragedy struck. Now she puts herself in dangerous situations. This makes them the perfect match. TJ is determined to have her; keep her; give her all the pain she desires. Kaci can't let go of the pain and guilt she feels over her past. She can't live a life without punishment she feels she deserves. TJ and Kaci had so many obstacles to ov ...more

This is the fourth and final book in this awesome series, and is finally TJ and Kaci’s story. As we already know from previous stories, TJ is the dark and twisted enforcer of the Ravens MC. Kaci is broken and makes some questionable decisions in her life, and she is haunted by demons as is TJ. No spoilers; this is a definite must read as you will not be disappointed! This is a well written phenomenal story, which is dark, twisted, intense, heartbreaking, which leads to an all round emotional rol ...more
