It had hurt enough when she thought he’d betrayed her, but now that she knew the real truth-that he’d gone out of his way to make her believe such a horrible, horrible lie-the pain was. Immeasurable

***warning, spoilers will probably be revealed though I will try my best not to reveal anything

I got this book as a free promotional without any realization that it was a sequel. From the general description for the book I thought I would enjoy the story. I wanted to enjoy it and even like it.

But hello? Did the author not want to make mention that the hero in the story is actually the son of Satan? It's revealed in the first few pages and I guess from the first book in the series you would've known that fact, but still it was almost enough for me to stop reading altogether. It wasn't something I liked. Then my reading went from interest to just plain curiosity of how this would turn out. I even thought about skimming so I wouldn't really have to read about a character who was the son of Satan before I actually became interested in the story within the first several chapters.

Then we actually got to know Rhea and she cant trust or forgive despite everything Deacon does. To be honest I felt bad for the guy. I wanted to dislike his character. I mean, hello? He's the son of Satan. If that wasn't weird enough, he had actually hurt the heroine lying and keeping secrets and abandoning her before returning to complicate her life further. But I actually liked his character the best. He actually made me feel bad for him and want him to have a happy ending. Rhea was just annoying and whiny and always upset. Even in the end when you expect the happy ending, she's still hesitant and looking for affirmation that choosing Deacon is the right choice. Come on, Girl! Just the way she responded to news and secrets was annoying. She was a drama queen and over reacted to just about everything.

There were a few mistakes; one which involved using Deacon's name instead of Collin's, but overall the flow was fine. But the only other thing I wasn't clear on and it isn't discussed or explained (maybe in the first book) is why they can't have children. Is it that they don't want anymore spawn of Satan? Or they physically can't have kids? I mean they mention it but it's not explained. I was just slightly confused why it was even added if there would be no explanation.
The book started out great, hooked me immediately. Deacon comes back to "set things right" with Rhea, and she goes after him with a shot gun. A great beginning.....too bad it wasn't the beginning of the story, it's a real shame that the reader never gets to read the beginning of this story.

The parts of the story that are NEVER revealed to the reader:
1. The H/H meeting/falling in love
2. The heroine finding out the hero is the son of satan with "powers"....(that could have been really fun reading)
3. The hero being dragged back to hell

In a nutshell: After Deacon leaves, the town gossips threaten to ruin Rheas reputation and her store. So she forges a marriage license, and claims Deacon died. Deacon can "feel her pain" and comes back to make her feel better so she can go on with her life. How he plans to do this is never explained. They come up with a funny scenario of where Deacons been (since he didn't die after all). And they are forced to live together while they try to figure a way out of her lies (sorry, no funny or cute scenes here either). All the while, both keep saying and thinking that Deacon is going to leave again, he can't stay. Yet half way through the book, Rhea decides the only way out of their problem is to legally marry in secret. It didn't make sense. Since nobody but them knew the marriage was fake, what exactly would secretly marrying for real solve??? The Judge she contacts to to secretly marry them, is a "family friend" but then she finds out about a family secret from many years ago. Who cares?

I felt like the better half of this book was missing altogether (maybe it was in book 1?), and what was left was just a giant mess.

Happy it was free....even happier that I can delete it from my kindle.
I'll start out by saying thank the Lord I'm done with this book.
It started out great. The woman's heartbroken, for good reason, the man is cocky but remorseful. About halfway through I started getting confused about events and time, and I started wondering why Deacon wanted Rhea at all. I don't know how old she was, but she seemed to me to be a young, selfish, stubborn, spoiled, indecisive, dim-witted drama queen. He could have done so much better.
Every little thing caused her to freak out, cry and run away. "Why didn't you tell me you had a sister?" (Run away and cry). "Why are you trying to explain things to me?" (Run away and cry). "Why didn't you tell me you had your power back?" (Throw up and cry). "I need to know why our parents cheated? Tell me exactly what happened! Every detail!" (Okay, that was a little exaggerated. But only a little).
She seems to think she doesn't need anyone "protecting her," but she acts like a child so she's treated like one, in my opinion.
Collin wasn't any better. He seemed like a terrible brother.
Really, the only character I liked was Deacon. He deserved way better.
All in all, good plot; I only finished it to find out what happened, though I scanned the last three chapters. Unlikable heroine, her whining and dramatic ways left me frustrated. Likeable hero, bad taste in women.
Would not recommend unless it was rewritten.
I will admit that I only read the blurb and didn't realize that this was a paranormal and #2 in a series, otherwise I might have passed. Anyway, it started off pretty good and then it just got tiresome. Didn't like the heroine at all. She was stupid and whiny. Deacon had the makings of a good hero and I didn't get the attraction. Maybe if I had read the first one... Just didn't care enough about either one of these people to finish the story. Got it for free but don't think I would have finished it if I had paid for it. It's always disappointing to have a book start off intriguing and then have it fizzle.
