Overview

Dimitri Tasarov has never had a choice in what he was. From infancy, he had been raised with the knowledge that he was a monster, an unlovable creature without a soul, until a single act of kindness threw his entire world into a tailspin.

Ava Emerson had always led a reluctantly sheltered existence. Friendship was a luxury that came with questions she couldn’t afford to answer.

They were an unlikely pair. He lived behind his mask and his roses, and she lived behind her secrets, yet they shared a bond that could get them killed if anyone ever found out.

Times were changing. The city was in turmoil. The weak were unprotected and someone needed to make a stand. But Dimitri wasn’t the only one with eyes on the north, or Ava, and they will stop at nothing to claim them both.

Can Dimitri keep Ava safe, or will the devil fall?

The cover is amazing and absolutely represents the story behind the picture. Politics, war, turf, beauty, love, chaos, old money, new money, and family are some of the words that come to mind when I think of this book. Every word had to read or I would have missed some of the chaos that was going on around Dimitri and/or Ava. Dimitri being the street thug who is trying to gaining power in the underworld and do good at the same time. Ava is the beautiful girl that loves Dimitri for who he is and what he represents for the people of the community. These two characters go through a lot of chaos from one scene to the next but Dimitri’s figures out all the power is nothing without Ava. I think this story deserves 4 ½ stars.

Lightning does strike twice in the same place because this is a perfect secondary novel to the first in Transcending Darkness. Airicka knocks it out the park Dimitri and Ava gives us love, betrayal, suspense and hot hot sex. This story keeps things moving and has you panting and wanting more. 5 Stars Fabulous!!!

The Devil’s Beauty is a spectacularly breathtaking and incredibly powerful journey that will strip your soul bare and then clothe it in pure love and boundless hope. This is a stunning story of fighting for and discovering a Heaven on Earth of unconditional acceptance, fierce hope, and passionate love. Life can be beyond cruel, but it can also give us exactly what we need even if it’s not in the form we want. We just need to look past the darkness around us and see the rays of light that are desperately trying to penetrate our dark prison. Don’t shut your eyes to the good even in the midst of the darkest of night that this life can bring. Keep your heart open and move forward with the power of love and hope. Ava’s world changed forever the day she met her step-father John Paul. He loved her with an unrelenting and fierce love when she craved it more than anything. He turned her world upside down and showed her what a parent was supposed to be. She loved him more the life itself, but John Paul has many secrets. Secrets that could turn her life upside down and inside out. Can the power that John Paul wields be able to protect his precious Ava before one of his secrets steals more than he is prepared to give up? I couldn’t get over just how remarkable the characters in this story are. Each and every one of them have such a huge depth and breathe to them. They are utterly fascinating and wondrously extraordinary. I lost my heart to Dimitri and Ava, and I don’t want it back. Their journey was stunning and brilliant! This story is one that will haunt you long after it is over. You won’t want it to end, and I can’t wait to read more from these absolutely enthralling characters. This is the first book I read by Airicka Phoenix, and I am completely blown away. She stole my heart irrevocably, and I willingly give her my reading devotion as well. She is a true master at creating such a vividly heart-wrenching world that will turn your life upside down. You won’t be able to look at anything the same way ever again. You will see so much more, feel even the slightest of emotions, and have a much more sensitive view of our world. You don’t want to miss out on this wonderful masterpiece!

THIS WAS AMAZING. So much went on in the book, but it was a great build up to the ultimate ending. At times, I didn't even realize what was happening until the final pieces fell together, and then I sorta just sat there like... that just happened. It blew my mind. Our MCs have known each other for most of their lives, but it comes in remembrances and recollections as they continue to do their own story in the present. I think one of the best things about this was how there were so many stories linking all together to make up one big masterpiece for me. It kept me in suspense. I love Phoenix's writing and although it's been a while since I've read her books, I'm definitely going to start up again. She managed to meld so many things together and make it work: crime/gang life, romance, sexy times, comedy and even tragedy. If I could give this a higher rating, I would. Definitely not a book to treat like a fast read, it's got a whole lot of entertainment that'll make you laugh out loud and cry (at least it did for me).
