Take a smokin’ hot Lycan who has found but then lost his mate, a woman who has tried to leave said Lycan in the past and a little boy who is displaying some very strange behavior; put them together and you have the recipe for a page flipping good time. Mated to the Devil is high on my list of great reads this year. From the first page to the last it had me wanting more.
For a college student, Remy’s character seems to act typical for his age. Immature and impulsive he quickly lives to regret the one night of drunken lost control. Plus his father being there in the morning helps him see the light! I could tell he had it in him to be more than just a dumb kid from the start and he didn’t let me down. His passion is obvious from the very first pages and it never cools. I adore hot men in novels, they never disappoint me. They are oh so protective and when the bad boys come around they are always so good.
Mina’s back story is one that is pretty bleak. Some of what happens to her seems harsh and her family is awful but she manages to grow up quickly, pull through and keep going. I couldn’t get myself to care too deeply for her though because her behaviors were generally inconsistent. I kept feeling like her story skipped or had holes in it. While typing this it hit me that I felt like she was living more on autopilot most of the time. I think I expected more fire from her. I really liked Jacques, their son, he has a great personality and even as young as he is he was already showing what kind of qualities he was going to have as an adult.
If we could rate in half stars I would give it four and a half stars. My only complaint would be that I thought that Mina’s side of the story and also how they are found needed something more. Mina felt a little hollow to me but maybe this will become a series and some of the vagaries I sensed will be explained. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and encourage you to read it.

Great story! I¿m a huge fan of Eve Langlais, and I really loved
I’m a huge fan of Eve Langlais, and I really loved this story. I felt it was a bit different than the other books I’ve read from her. There was a little less snark and humor, and a little more worry and self-deprecation on the character’s part. But on a few levels I really felt like I connected with this book more than others.
Why? Well, because of Mina. Mina is a single mom, which is something I always love to see in stories because I am one, myself. It instantly creates a connection to the character for me. I mean, sure, I don’t have a shifter baby, but maybe someday with a little luck, I could!
But aside from that, Mina is a warm and caring person. I love how that in the face of what could surely be the end of her, she stands up tall and gets everything done. I.Love.That. She is an untapped source of strength, and it just drew me to her over and over.
Remy is a great guy, err, wolf. He isn’t in the story quite as much as Mina, but when he is, he shines like a beacon. Sure, he’s made some mistakes. But he feels the err of them right to his core, and I think it really goes to show what kind of a man he is. And that’s how an Alpha should be. Yes, everyone makes mistakes. But the truly smart people learn from them.
I think the whole of this story was exciting and fast paced. The romance was sexy, the sweet parts were tender, and the danger was tangible. The story also switched through several points of view, which happened so seamlessly I didn’t feel like I was jarred or anything of a sort. And I really enjoyed the different perspectives, it helped complete the whole world for me. For fans of Eve Langlais, I think this is one not to be missed, and for those who may not have read her yet, this would be a good place to start.
