Devil You Hate. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Devil You Hate by J.L. Beck

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you make a deal with the devil he will always collect.

They call me “ The Devil. 

Deranged and violent. 

Gorgeous but frightening. 

The night before her arranged marriage, I kidnap her. 

As the last remaining daughter to the Ricci Family I know her father will do anything to keep his hold over the five families, which means he’ll do anything to keep her safe.

Beautiful, fragile and innocent, destroying her will push her father over the edge.

Taking her was revenge, plain and simple. Spilled blood for spilled blood. 

Most wouldn’t dare cross another mob family, but I’m scared of no one. 

I figure the mafia princess will be easy to break, but I was wrong. 

The light in her tempts the darkness inside of me. Teases it, tortures it. 

Every day I find myself wanting to hurt her, break her, but also keep her. 

Lucky for Celia, she fails to see that there is no escaping what I have planned. When she attempts to draw me in with her innocence, and sweet naive heart I thrive to show her what true darkness is.

Devil You Hate

Awesome ending!

The heroine: Celeste Ricci (a.k.a. Celia) – Mafia princess, who has been locked away in her tower for her entire existence. In her world women are only good for cementing partnerships with other mafia families. She has known her whole life that she would someday be bartered away and married off for her father’s gain.

The Hero(es): Nicolo Diavolo (a.k.a. Nic) – His parents and older brother were murdered in front of him and his younger brother Luca when they were kids. Since then they have lived for revenge against Celia’s father.

The Story: Nic kidnaps Celia on the eve of her wedding to another man. When Celia first see’s Nic, he is covered in another man’s blood and killing a second man. He has big plans to auction her off to the highest bidder in his revenge plot against her family.



This is a pretty standard mafia captive romance except that instead of Nicolo being the mafioso that is in an arranged marriage with the princess, he has kidnapped her to sell her for revenge against her father. However, he can’t seem to keep his hands off her even though keeping her a virgin for the auction is of utmost importance.

This book is sizzling hot and I couldn’t put it down. The chemistry between Nic and Celia is explosive 🧨. I hope the next one comes out soon because I can’t wait. The ending was a huge cliffhanger and surprising to say the least.

Triggers: kidnapping, degradation, spanking, dub-con.
