Dueling with the Devil #2
by Vivi Dumas
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorn. What if that woman is a demon, in fact Lilith’s very own daughter? Isabella LaCoste vowed to get her revenge on her ex and his new human fiance. She didn’t commit fifty years of her life to be thrown out like last season’s runway fad. But taking vengeance on an upper level Shifter Demon and the newly crowned Voodoo Princess might not be a one demon job. She volunteers her services to Lucifer to deliver Angel and Jacque in exchange for his help. She never expected her new partner in crime would fill the void in her broken heart.
Not even death brought him peace. Xavier Toussant wanted out of his contract and the killing business. His last assignment was his own brother and he failed to deliver. Lucifer didn’t appreciate his valor in dealing with his brother, Jacque. In fact, it only created more problems. Xavier’s back on assignment to capture his brother and the Voodoo chick. Only this time, he’s shackled to the craziest female in the Underworld. Xavier finds Isabella LaCoste might be the one thing to put his soul at ease.
My review ….
It’s never easy for a second book in a series to be better than the first, but believe me when I say that this book is even better than the first! And I am so glad that I was asked to review it. I read it! I have loved this new world that Vivi has created.
The story continues from where the last one stopped but with other main characters. And in this book Bell is the leading female character in this story and I have to say that she is wasnt my first choice for a book, i didnt really warm to her.
After her fury for her ex’s engagement with a human she wants to revenge. But what she finds? Love. And she can’t believe it because the person that she has her love is Xavier, her ex’s brother. Wow !!!! Complicated or what !
I grew to like Bell a lot. Although sometimes she was kind of a bitch, when she loves she does it completely. She says she doesn’t care what the others think but the truth is that she likes to belong and after this book it’s easy to say that she’s truly happy after so many years.
Again Xavier wasn’t my favorite. He had a bad life so far and nobody was there for him. It’s logical to be bitter but it doesn’t last long. It’s more than obvious that he needs love in his life and now that he found this love he will do anything to keep it. I absolutely loved him in the end.
To be honest, I liked the plot more than the first book. With it’s fast pace and non-stop action, with a splash of romance.
I highly urge you to take a peek.
