Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn't expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot...to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.
He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.
Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm's-length.
However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.
Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.
Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

I am a sucker for a well written second chance love story and we are given that in Devil You Know. The timing was never right. The love never changed. One is dark. One is light. One is silent One is vocal. Both smart. Both witty. Both get thrown into the fight of their lives. Neither will back down. It was an angst filled read. You shout at them to “just get it together and work it out! Enough already!” Then you realize, “ok, this is needed.” I definitely needed to take some deep breaths. But when Thea and Damian are “together” it is explosive! Then we have the element of suspense and who is ultimately behind what is happening and you be surprised of who it is. I was certainly miffed and might have flicked them off, (totally did). Throughout the book we get to see what makes each character who they are, how they are essential to each scene and the part they play to the plot and subplots. They are developed and lifelike and will show you what family and loved ones are all about. The “good” characters: You will cheer them on. Laugh with them. High five them. You cry with them. You will smile with them. The “bad: characters: Be disgusted with them. Totally hate a them. Want to throttle them. Want to scream at them My main thought on this book is this: Teenage love takes a journey through time that is faced with a different path of choices and unexpected danger, to root itself in their souls to bind them eternally.
I devoured this book, my heart was completely dedicated to Thea & Damian's story. Loved how the characters were given in such great detail from beginning to end. Damian is hard & tortured soul but when he is with Thea who is sweet and innocent: their combo is a cherry bursting explosion! My heart fell hard for this love story. It was written with such compassion, heart, some angst, drama, twists of fate... everything wrapped up into a story you do not want to miss reading. The restraint & angst of Damian to Thea had me fidgeting in my seat & I ❤️ every minute of it! I love me some tortured men & the ladies that love them! Seriously Author L.A. Fiore keeps bringing us stories that will forever be captured in our hearts. Go grab this book!
Great romance with a mystery added. Great characters and loved the secondary characters.
