The Devil’s Advocate (Devil’s Playground, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Devil’s Advocate by Ashley Jade

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One man thinks I’m a saint. 

The other thinks I’m a sinner. 

One man lives in the public eye. 

The other lurks in the shadows. 

One man wants to use me for his own needs. 

The other wants to use me for his revenge. 

One man will get what’s coming to him. 

The other will get what he deserves. 

They told me good girls get rewarded. 

But I’ve been bad. Very bad. 

I made a deal with The Devil…and I liked it.

The heroine: Eden – was neglected by her mother and used by Cain. Damien is now using her to get revenge. Though I think of the three Damien has better intentions for her than her mother did.

The Hero(es): Cain Carter – his goal is to become Mayor and everything he does is toward achieving that goal. Though he loves Eden (is obsessed with her really), he plans to marry the Governor’s daughter for political gain. He eventually wants to become President.
Damien King – Cain betrayed him and broke him when they were in high school and now he is driven by the desire to get revenge. He plans to take everything from Cain starting with Eden.

The Love Story: Damien plans to marry Eden and run for mayor against Cain. Eden is attracted to Damien despite being in love with Cain.

This story has so many intricacies, I was fascinated from the start. In The Devil I felt for Damien and though I didn’t like him at first, I grew to really like him. I was ambivalent about Cain early in the book despite his actions as a teen, but one thing I do know is that this is sizzling hot and super steamy! It is dark and twisty and erotic just how I like.

I must say that after the things Cain did in The Devil and the way he has manipulated Eden, it was fun to see him thwarted by Damien more than once. It is rare in books when an “Anti-Hero” gets a taste of his own medicine, so I really enjoyed that. Not that Damien was a pillar of goodness himself, but I really liked him so I forgave his missteps.

Cain makes a good villain in this book since he goes to untenable lengths to get what he wants. I loved the fact that this one was just as unpredictable and surprising as the first book. I didn’t think there would be as many big reveals as there were in the first book, but I think this one had more. Just when I thought I knew where the story was going it would take a turn that I never suspected.
