Deal with the Devil
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Luz Velez is a shapeshifter who can’t shift. Every time she tries to summon her inner wolf, she has a massive panic attack. Worse, her anxiety extends to the rest of her life. At twenty-seven, she’s still a virgin because attempting to have sex sends her into lockdown mode. She’s miserable and stuck—until Jude Jacobson comes along.
Tall, blond and dangerous, Jude is the most feared vampire in town and the minute he sees her, he wants Luz. Vampires and shapeshifters don’t date but he makes her an offer she can’t refuse—a blood exchange that will help her control her panic attacks and give her the life she’s always wanted.
Luz is desperate—she takes Jude up on his offer. But she doesn’t expect to fall for the darkly seductive vampire—or to be plunged into danger when her past comes calling. When Jude’s own dark secret comes to light, she begins to question her deal with the devil and wonder if she and Jude can make it…or if they’ll die trying.
Definitely not what I expected when I read this story. This entertaining and enjoyable read sure pack a punch. For being a short read I really wish we got double POV and not just Luzs. While reading the story, I always wondered what was going on in Jude's head. Also one thing that bothered me was, I understand completely that Luz had a horrific past but with all her talk about werewolf strength I would've liked to see Luz kick some butt. It probably would've been cathartic for her to fight off her childhood attacker, instead of mouthing off. Overall a great read. I would love a sequel to cover Diego's story. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review no minority compensation was received the opinions I have expressed are my own.
fun, fast read!!
Deal with the Devil is a standalone read. Luz Velez from age 13 has been through a fair amount of tragedy. Because of the tragedy she's a werewolf that cannot shift, has anxiety/panic attacks and since she can't shift her pack doesn't want anything to do with her except for the pack master, and that isn't a good thing. Jude Jacobson is a vampire and not just an ordinary vampire, when he meets Luz while trying to buy some property he's completely infatuated with her. After the meeting they have goes completely wrong, Jude invites Luz out for a drink and he's got a proposal for her.
This was a fast easy read. I breezed through the book, I really enjoyed Jude's character, but Luz felt a little too meek and weak to me. I will mention for some readers there are several parts that may be disturbing. If you like hot and steamy you won't be disappointed. I would definitely be curious to see if Luz's brother Diego gets his own book, I really enjoyed his character in this book. Hope this helps!! Happy Reading!!!
Excellent paranormal sexy story! Lux's character is strong and defiant of what her life & family have thrown at her. Jude is lonely, tough, gentle and supportive. I also loved Lux's brother Diego. Great conflict & resolution. Build up & sex scenes are scorching!
