BLAIR
I sold my soul to the devil.

Hard times prove who’s a survivor and who’s not. Me? I’m a survivor.

The plan was perfect: steal one of his cars for a payout to set us up for life. All while getting back at him for tormenting me from the moment I first stepped foot in stuck up Silver Lake High School.

But he caught me red-handed. What’s worse, a jail sentence or becoming th

It’s all about the mask!



In book one of this series, Lucas wore a “mask” in school as the King of the school and the football god while in reality he was a completely different person that he kept hidden inside. He didn’t want to disappoint his parents or the team or all the people counting on him to go bring them a championship and go on to college football and the NFL. However, he just wanted to study architecture.

In this book, his cousin Devlin (aka The Devil) is now a senior and rules the sc

anyone else love it when stars are used as some type of soulmate/love connection between mcs and they connect through shooting stars because they're both so alone and the people they love always leave them so when they were kids they always used to wish under the stars hoping one of them would come true and to take away their pain and one of those wishes was to have someone by their side who won't leave them and lo and behold that someone is their enemy...

We match. Black hair. Blacker hearts, dark and frayed by circumstance. But maybe we can heal our bruises together. Two broken souls finding solace and salvation in the depths of each other’s darkness.

Wicked Saints and Tempting Devils are worlds apart from each other, still can't believe it's the same author who wrote it.

4 stars and a praise to the lord for finally finding a good high school romance

this book had some nice quotes but I just couldn't not think about A Court of Mist and Fury and this particular quote while reading it:
"To the people who look at the stars and wish."
"To the stars who listen - and the dreams that are answered"



Tempting Devil was so good! I haven't read a romance that sucked me in this much in like a month, so I'm just so happy! There was just a bit of a twist on the whole bullyin

I honestly want to throw up. Strong female lead? From where? Which angle? Someone please show me.

So I started reading the book and was immediately bored as it took 6 chapters for the very first scene to end, which was Blair stealing the car, getting caught and then Devlin deciding what to do about it. After they came to an agreement that Devlin would not call the police as long as Blair does exactly what he says and in return he will pay her as

This is my first read by Miss Eden and I am surprise that I enjoy Tempting Devil. It is a bit sappy NA bully romance story. I usually have difficulty rating bully romance because I think bully is a serious issue and should not be romanticized.

As for NA audience, the characters development is OK although I think it can be edited must better especially the banter between Devlin and Blair. The bully actions also can be dramatized. The story/ plot/ twist is OK for NA romance.

Overall I enjoy this b

”You’re my shooting star. My wishes come true when i’m with you.”

It’s been so long since an NA book manages to capture my attention throughout the entire book without me feeling bored or annoyed and it’s so refreshing. The more I read, the more I wanted to kept going and my eyes just kept flying by page after page. The rush I felt reading this...oh how I’ve missed it.

This was a lot better than Wicked Saint hands down. I can see why devlinblair was so hyped up on Twitter and they real

3.5 ‘Little Thief’ 🌟

I’ll be her own personal nightmare and her salvation all at once.

Tempting Devil is the story how Blair, who is financially unstable, gets into a sticky situation with Devlin, who has literally thousands of dollars as pocket money (courtesy of never present parents), and how she gets blackmailed to humiliate herself to get financial help from Devlin. The premise was intriguing, and the book started with a bang, but I started losing interest for the last quarter of the bo

Couldn’t connect to the characters and on the 70% mark I skimmed to the end.
NOTHING SPECIAL HERE.

Devin was all over the place and kinda childish. Blair was slightly better but I couldn’t connect to her. The progress from hate to love wasn’t really done all that will either. This whole book frustrated me.

I’ll go with a 2.5 stars because I did manage to finish the whole book and some parts were kind of entertaining. I don’t think I like bully romance anymore it just doesn’t have that affect on

Absolutely no words as to how much I really enjoyed and loved these characters.

Tempting Devil is the second book of the Sinners and Saints series. It’s Devlin and Blair’s book and it was filled with so much chemistry between them!

Blair Davis is one of my favorite female characters because she always stood up for herself and really cared about the people close to her. I liked that she never let people simply walk all over her and tried to make the best out of unfortunate situations. I really enjo

I am so happy I didn't give up on this author after her Wicked Saint and read this awesomeness.

The hero is an unstoppable bulldozer when it comes to getting what he wants.

"Devlin doesn’t just take an inch, he takes a mile."

And it quickly becomes evident that what he wants is Blaire.

"Fuck, I want her. I don’t care if I’m a creep, watching her in secret. She’s mine to watch."

He got it so so bad for her. Devlin was already obsessed with her at the bullying phase of their relationship and then c

 This just might be my favorite high school bully romance of the year!

This book had me hooked from the first page.

Devlin has tormented Blair all throughout high school. He's rich, she's poor but they find out they have more in common than they thought.

He catches her red-handed and makes a deal with her. Do whatever he says or he'll call the cops.

He puts Blair through so much torture. What he does, his followers reciprocate, so Blair's torment is double.

Then Devlin uncovers a piece of information

Arghhhh!! Absolutely loved this book! This book can be read as a stand-alone but is better read after the first book for context.

After the glimpses of Blair and Devlin we got in the first book, I was dying to know their storyyy!! &Veronica did not disappoint!!! This book really kicked off from the get go & I was flying through every page.

--- NOT LOVE IN FIRST SIGHT.

The hero was having a bad personal problem in his life that made him very confused and angry at the same time. I feel actually bad for the hero...

Devlin was definitely something else.
I couldn't believe how he was so determined to destroy Blair life, he hated her.
But obviously all that hate was only a facade , under that there was an undeniable chemistry.
Once he opened his eyes, there was to way to close them.
Blair was the missing piece , not a game , not a deal, but THE REAL DEAL. They were meant to be since the beginning .
This story was FIRE, I couldn't put it down . I read all of it in one night. I Can't wait for Bishop story.

"The quirky friend from my childhood is my little thief. I can't believe it."

I know this book is categorized as a dark romance but please Devlin paying Blair to stay in his house with him because he felt alone is the softest thing. I really enjoyed this book, it was entertaining and it has some angsty moments, I loved how Blair and Devlin had this soulmate thing going on with their stars tattoos and him finding her again after years. Also, the relationship between Blair and her mom mad
