I wasn't instantly grabbed by this book. Was it the writing style, the dialogue I couldn't connect with due to my advanced years or maybe was it that my mood demanded more grit? I've tried, but I can't come up with a valid answer. However, not one to throw in the towel too soon, I did finally get to the point where I was invested in these characters, the plotline, the buried secrets & the fact that these two MC's made each other so happy. There isn't a lot of steam here, but that's ok, I was mor ...more

Devil Side is the fourth book in the Extraordinary series, but can be read as a standalone! Our main characters Max and Gia don't really know each other that well, but they're about to go on a road trip together that will definitely change both of their lives.

I was sucked into this story from the start. Lacey Dailey has a way with words that just won't let you go. I really felt for both Max and Gia and really wanted them to have their happily ever after. The dul POV really helped me enter this w

This was my first time reading a story by this author. I fell in love with these young characters. Lacey created an entire world that pulsed with life and grew with each turn of the page. I am always fond of authors who do not shy away from serious topics in books. This one is no different.
Gigi, or Gia, as she is called by Max is a soon to be college graduate. The problem she doesn’t want the life she was forced into. Max gives her an opportunity of a lifetime to help her find who she is. On th

Devil Side is the fourth novel in the Extraordinary series, but can be read as a standalone.

This is a novel about one guy…
Max is destined to be a musician, however, Max isn't like most musicians out there. His sole purpose for writing and making music is simply because of the music. He's not in it for the glitz and glam.

I don’t even know where to begin with this review. I’ve read books by Lacey before, but I don’t read blurbs, so I had no idea what to expect when I started this book and I was in for one wild, emotional, beautiful ride that I never wanted to end.

Gigi, or as Max likes to call her Gia, is unhappy with her life, she isn’t doing what she loves, but what her father deems is best for her, including an engagement to a man she doesn’t love. When Maxwell walks into her life and gives her the opportunity

Hands down one of my top reads of 2020!!

First off let me start by saying I was so NOT ready for Gia, Max and Aiden. Lacey completely blew me away with this story. I was enraptured from start to finish and even now days later I'm still thinking of these characters, their depth, their transformation, their love. I wanted to soak these characters in for as long as I could.

Gia has spent her entire life a meek, docile daughter. Like marionette her father pulls all of the strings in her life, what t

This book came as a surprise to me. I mean, when I bought it, I just read the blurb and thought, hmm, this is interesting. When I finally got to read it earlier this month, I know I've scored a gem!

Gia Moretti is sick and tired of her father's manipulation and control on her life. So when the opportunity comes for her to go cross country and spend days with someone she already knows, she immediately defies her father's wishes and hops on Max Mitchell's car. I love how determined and passionate G

“I love you.” I tell her, my hand braced against the nape of her neck. “I’m fucking drowning in you, Gia Maria. I slipped right into your pretty blue eyes, kidding myself when I said I was going for a swim. I’m drowning, and I don’t care to come back up for air.”

Was this one of the best books I’ve read in 2020? YES. A thousand times, yes. I would never want to ruin this book for anyone, so I won’t go into much detail in this review. I will be brief, but just know that if you read this book and w

Devil Side is one of those rare books that affect me so deeply that I have to stop and reflect before writing a review. It is in my top 10 reads of 2018!

Gigi Moretti appears to be a young woman who has her life together and knows exactly what she wants to do. However, no one sees the invisible chains that are holding her captive. Her father has control of the keys that will break them and set her free, but he won’t. He has controlled every aspect of her life…her education, her job, and now he ha

I had no idea what to expect from this book...and I was absolutely blown away! WOW - this author does such an incredible job of telling the story of Max and Gia and their complicated relationship. This book will break your heart and then put it back together again all while you are trying to wrap your head and heart around what just happened. It is funny, suspenseful, passionate, and will leave you speechless. What starts out as a fun and flirty friendship between Max & Gia slowly builds into a ...more

Top Read of 2018!

Wow! This book was amazing!

I went into this book honestly not knowing what to expect. The blurb intrigued me and I had several thoughts on who Aiden was, but I can honestly say I was not expecting Aiden to be who he was. Dailey reveals the secret of Aiden early on. I loved that. As a reader, I felt omniscient and a little bit powerful. Despite knowing about Aiden, most of the characters did not. It was pretty fantastic.

I´ll keep it spoiler free. :D

What I can mention is that Gigi has a story many young people with strict parents can relate to. She is trying her best, maybe even too much, to please her parents. As a reader you want her to break out of the golden cage, which is when Max appears. He´s cheeky, funny and confident; the good kind of a bad boy. They both meet in a restaurant & talk to each other since they have mutual friends. The conversation ends with Max offering Gigi to come with him and leave the

I was really surprised by this book. Lacey Dailey is a new author for me. I went in not thinking too much about it, but WOW, I LOVVVVED it. Gia and Max have been sort of friends/honorary bro and sis(but not really) through friends. The keep each other at a distance as far as not oversharing their lives. Gia is under pressure by her crazy father her whole life. Max has been through a really rough childhood. His inner battles of keeping people close enough but at arms length is quite sad.

This review was copied from my romance novel review blog: Romantically Inclined Reviews (

Normally I read the blurb of a book before I read the book. Sometimes this backfires on me because the blurb gets me so anxious or worked up that I can’t bring myself to actually read the darn book. In this case, I didn’t bother looking up the blurb (mostly out of laziness) which meant that I went into Devil Side by Lacey Dailey completely blind. Probably for the bes

The best place to find Lacey is with her nose in a book. She’s a sucker for a good love story and a happy ending that has her swooning. When she’s not obsessing over giving her own characters a happy ending, you can find her in the dance studio empowering young dancers and giving out tons of stickers. Thanks to her mother’s pizzeria, Lacey can make a delicious pizza.
