Holy hell. I fell hard for Ty. He was such a fantastic leading man in this story. He was passionate with a flair for the naughty talk and totally broken with a need to punish himself for something tragic from his past. He made me laugh. He made me cry. He made me all hot and bothered. I heart him. BIG.
Then there's Mona who I adored. She found the MC years ago and they became her family. So when she is devastated and floundering these are who surround her wanting to take care of and support her in piecing her life together. She was so strong even when she went a little crazy. She is absolutely perfect for Ty.
I loved that the author just brings you right into the story and you can't help but invest in the lives of these characters. I couldn't put it down from the very first page and devoured every bit of it.
I give Devil in the Detail 5 hearts!
About the Book
Loves comes in all shapes and forms, and sometimes it can be hard to distinguish which one you’re given.
I run from my pain—that’s just what I do. It’s how I’ve managed to keep a handle on the shame and remorse at what I did the day my life changed. Has it changed me for the good, or for the worse—I can never be sure? Some days it's one and most it’s the other.
Now, each day is getting darker, ever since I met the woman who has the power to ease my ache and got a taste for what could be.
Selfish? Maybe. Foolish? Definitely. But nothing can stop me until I prove to her she needs me just as much as it kills me to wake up one more day without her.
I’ll do whatever it takes—even if I risk my life and my health fighting her psychotic and possessive old man to get her in my bed.

Her brow twitches. “I can’t do this. I’m sorry.” She steps away, heading for the door.
Lunging from the chair, I catch her shoulder and spin her to face me. “Can’t do what? Why are you running?”
“Because being around you makes me feel things, and I know it’s wrong to.”
“Ramona, you need to tell me,” I plead, heart beating erratically. “What kind of ‘things’ are you feeling?” I need to know if they’re the same.
“Like you could be something incredible for me. But . . . ”
God, she’s killing me. “But?”
“It’s not the right time.” She smiles softly.
A beat passes with us staring at one another. I don’t want the moment to end. I don’t want her to walk away. “Do you love him?” My tongue is thick in my mouth.
She shakes her head, smiling, yet her eyes are sad . . . so damn sad. “Not like you think—that’s the problem.”
