You would think that after everything that happened in Paris that life would calm down for X and Mercy. No such luck. When faced with the choice of running away together and finding out about X's past life, they of course decide to investigate. With the help of a tied up man from his past, they have clues on how to find The Watchman. Unfortunately Mercy is taken and handed over to the man. Bad scary man who derives way to much pleasure by bringing out the monster in a person using any means. My heart broke for Mercy as she suffered at his hand. In the meantime X is losing his mind trying to find her enlisting Vaughn in making a rescue plan. He finds out about his past and it was like a punch in the guy with all he was put through. Things so wonky when they make the attempt and Vaughn gets the shocker of his life. I mean just punch the guy in the gut shocker. Loved it. I also love X and Mercy together. As twisted as they are after all they have been through, they just make complete sense together. Besides the fact that there is some off the charts chemistry between them and there is some serious steamy moments shared. Holy hotness! Mercy totally kicks ass in this part of their story. So very strong, yet still vulnerable. And I just heart X BIG. I loved how the author ended this part of their story and I would love to read more about what happens next.
I give Devil's Blood 5 hearts!
About the Book
We would embrace the darkness together…
Or not at all.
Xavier Blood is a man adrift. And a dangerous man without purpose is a lethal cocktail for disaster. Mercy Reid has her revenge, but it’s not what her heart desires most.
After everything he’s been through, X doesn’t want to know where he came from, let alone who he was. Mercy has become his life, his anchor, his everything, so why should it matter?
Mercy thinks X is delaying the inevitable and pushes him to understand the thing he struggles with the most—his identity—but it might be one push too far in the wrong direction.
Who is Xavier Blood? Only one man has the answer and it’s the man Mercy wants to meet the least. The more X withdraws into his broken mind, the more desperate she becomes to save him, even if it means coming face to face with the man who tortured and conditioned her love to be a cold hearted killer.
The Watchman has the answers, but are they the ones she wants to hear?
