Dominique Price hates me.
He wants me.
He can never have me.

At least that’s what I tell him.
Good looking, arrogant, football God, everything comes so easy for him. I won’t be just another game to win.
It doesn’t matter that I want him.
It doesn’t matter that with just one look, he takes my breath away.

He’s my brother's best friend and officially off limits.
But when he touches

This was my first read by this author, and even though I don't love the bully trope, I absolutely adore everything about the brothers best friend trope, so I was really excited to start reading this.. but unfortunately it just fell a bit flat to me. I also wasn't aware that this ended on a cliffhanger, which made me want to throw my kindle across the room, lol. There just wasn't much romance between these two.. it was all fighting and immature behavior, which I get is the norm for a bully romanc ...more

I’ve loved both Kasey and Dom since first meeting them. They are loyal to those they call their own and, despite how they treat each other, they have no problem stepping up to the plate for them. They both also wear masks and hide who they are and how they feel because their worlds, while pretty on the outside, aren’t as golden on the ins

Okay, so this might be the best football romance I’ve ever read. I started it late last night and stayed up to finish it because I couldn’t put it down! Dominique Price and Kasey Henderson have known each other since they were kids (he’s best friends with her older brother Aaron) and they’ve always clashed. But as they get older, they realize that part of the reason they fight is because they’re attracted to each other, although neither one of them will admit it. When Kasey starts college at sev ...more

I’ve been waiting for Dom and Kasey’s story for a long time. Dom has had the strong, silent type thing going on for a while, but it seems he’s been the bully/alphahole towards Kasey for years, to keep her at arms length. To not give into the temptation.

Kasey has always put up with Dom’s crap, and given it right back. But when he corners her in a classroom at Suncrest U, and decides to punish her for lying, the steam build and intensifies.

It’s not until tragedy strikes that things really shift

What an emotion-filled, enemies to lovers, best friends little sister steamy read!! The scorching hot banter, mixed with feelings of off-limit hatred, was enough to bring me to my knees, before the action even began! My first read by this author and to say my heart (amongst other things) is filled with so much satisfaction, is not giving enough credit where credit is due.

Enemies to lovers has been my weak spot, but adding forbidden, off-limits, AND football into the mix, then we have ourselves

Uhh!! My heart. This book is an emotional rollercoaster, that will keep you wanting more.

Iv been eager for Dominique & Kasey story to be here because you see the chemistry starting throughout the other Devil books and boy it didn’t disappoint. The push and pull they have with one another will give you whip lash. None of them will admit to their feelings towards one another, so they fight each other constantly, make out hear and there, the

I loved the chemistry between Dominique and Kasey and how brooding he could be. I like heroes with a jerky side and he didn't disappoint. Kasey is tough, stubborn, and vulnerable.
She has a brother, but sadly he's fighting demons of his own. It was Dominique who was always there for her, a protector, even when she didn't like it. And because of that, the hate relationship was born. And let me tell you, it's so entertaining.

When tragedy strikes it's Dominique who's the mature one. To

After having read Wicked Devil and Savage Devil back to back I couldn't wait to get into this third installment! The Devils of Sun Valley High world pulled me back in. I enjoyed this installment!

I wasn't sure what all was going to happen in Kasey and Dominique's journey. I finished reading it in one sitting and I really liked how I felt many things with these characters!

With Cruel Devil, Ms.Romero has created a good read! I am so looking forward to more of this series!! ❤

Steamy, new adult bully romance!

This is my third book read by Daniela Romero and she scored a touchdown with this book.  There is soo much angst, steam and romance in this one. Kasey and Dominique take you on an emotional ride.  I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Daniela’s writing makes you feel like you’re right there with the characters. She really knows how to reel you in and tell a good story.

Cruel Devil is Dominique and Kasey story. The journey as they go back and forth between them is so incredible. You can see the chemistry between them from the beginning. Their love hate relationship is taking to another level in this book but leaves us hang at the end. Now I can’t wait for Cruel Promise to come out to see what happens to them.

I've been eagerly awaiting Kasey and Dominque's story and it was worth the wait. I love these two and the story went places I didn't expect. I can't wait for more of them in Cruel Promise and thanks Daniella Romero for not making it a cliffhanger!

Dominique & Kasey are like oil and vinegar rubbing each other up the wrong way.
Dom is Aaron Kasey's  brothers best friend so he's protective of her.
The chemistry between them is hot and the burner is getting ready to be lit.
I'm enjoying this series so much and I'm desperate to see where this story ends.

Omg!!! I loved every second of the book. I need more. The back and forth between Dom and Kasey is explosive. Tragedy brings them closer but will it stay that way? Can they remain friends without catching feelings? Amazing!!!

Finally! The highly anticipated story of my favorite of the Devils. I have always felt Dominique's story would be deep. I've truly hungered for his book after all the hints at his attraction to Kasey (Baby Henderson), and after his experiences in the other books. Cruel Devil did not disappoint. I have to say I was very alarmed at how short this book was at first. I missed the announcement that they would get a second book. I was lowkey panicking until I read Daniela's note at the end.

I didn’t realize quite how much I missed the Devils of Sun Valley High world until I read the first few words of Cruel Devil and was immediately immersed back in the Devil’s world.

Kasey is starting college early and will now be on campus with her brother and the other devils, but there’s one particular devil that makes her blood boil as much as he makes her tingle. She never falters when it comes to flinging sassy retorts and angry words at Dominique. She is all fire, sass, quick wit, and I abso

4 1/2 Stars for this hate-love romance!

I just love Kasey and have since the last book ... she's so full of spunk! She doesn't let anyone get away with treating her badly. Dominique is just so protective over "Baby Henderson" (love that nickname) ... I don't know how everyone doesn't see how infatuated he is with her, especially her brother Aaron (who is also Dom's best friend). Another dead giveaway is the verbal sparring between them ... you know that fine line between love and hate. And Kasey

This is the third book in the Devils of Sun Valley High series and it is Dominique and Kasey’s story. Kasey is the younger sister of Aaron who is Dominique’s college roommate. Kasey has known Dom since they attended the same high school when she was a freshman and he was a senior. Their interactions were nothing but oil and water which led Kasey to the impression that Dom did not like her but she gave as good as she got. The two are back in close proximity when she starts attending Sun

Wow this book will wreck you towards the end. Dominique is a jerk, he and Kasey are always arguing. They’re always at each others throat. They love to hate each other.
Dom is now in college and Kasey is taking some courses to get credits. She ends up of course at the same university as Dom. Her brother is dealing with things he’s not ready to talk about. Dom is sharing a place with him and being a friend to him. Dom and Kasey have some pretty steamy moments. But there are moments that will break

Daniela Romero, how can you do this to me, leave me hanging like this to conclude Dominique and Kasey's story?. Ms. Romero has once again produced a fast-paced exciting story that draws you in from the beginning.

If you have read the first two books in the series then you will know there is an emotional undercurrent going on between Kasey and Dominique. I more hate than love, well that is what they would say, but it goes much deeper than that, but neither one of them will ever admit it. When 17-

Going into Cruel Devil I wasn't sure how I felt knowing their story would now be separated into two books. Now, I AM READY for book 2! I need more Dom and Kasey ASAP.

I got into the story right away. The writing is easy to read and the chemistry between Kasey and Dominique is sizzling. Since I've read the first two books in this series, I had picked up on the hints about there being more between them, and I was wondering how it would play out.

Dominique is best friends with Kasey's brother, so they've known each other a very long time, and haven't gotten along either. Kasey is a smart cookie & hard worker so she started attending college at 17 years old, so Dominique is being overprotective by not letting any guy near her which tends to upset her, and I didn't blame her one bit. These two go toe to toe all the time as Dominique is quite cruel to her, and of course it's hiding the fact that he's got a secret thing for her but bro code. ...more

This is the 3rd book in this awesome series and is the 1st part of Dominique and Kasey’s story. These two have known each other since childhood and he is her older brothers’ best friend, and they have continually butted heads. When Kasey starts college, Don is there as well and they cross paths all the time, and he is overprotective toward her, and as they are older, they recognise the sexual tension between them for what it is.

What have you just done to me Daniella? It can’t end there…I need more!
Cruel Devil is a steamy enemies to lovers, brothers best friend story. I loved Dom and Kasey! Both of them were quite complex characters and they took love hate to a whole other level.
Their constant back and forth is entertaining although quite harsh towards each other at times. For a quick book it was fairly packed with angst, chemistry and explosive steamy scenes. Daniella really knows how to reel in her readers!

I'm also sad, confused—perhaps a little hungry—but I'm also super excited for what's to come.
