Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length.

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.


Before I could scan the crowd for Damian, a hand wrapped around mine…one with cuts and blood on the knuckles. It was Damian and he looked pissed.

“What the fuck are you doing here?”

My heart hurt seeing his face—a cut near his left eye, blood smeared down his cheek and a blooming bruise on his jaw. “I heard you and Cam talking. I was curious.”

He had been walking me toward the exit but those words stopped him. His feet sort of rooted themselves to the concrete floor as his head turned in my direction. “So you walked here alone?”

“It wasn’t far.”

That wasn’t the right answer apparently because he hissed between his teeth. It wasn’t an actual word, just a release of frustration.

He started toward the exit again. “What are you fighting when you are out there?”

We had just reached the stairs when he pulled me behind them and pressed me up against the wall. “Come again?”

“When you fight, what are you fighting?”

“Not who am I fighting?”

“No, your opponent isn’t what you’re fighting.”

He leaned in and lowered his head to look me right in the eyes. “How do you know that?”

I gently wiped the blood from his face. “I know you.”

He had the strangest reaction to that. He closed his eyes, like he was in pain, and lowered his forehead to my shoulder. “This can’t happen.”

Those words caused a chill to move right down my spine. He was wrong. It totally could and should happen. “Why not?”

He lifted his head and for the first time I saw so much more in those eyes. “Cam is a good friend and your parents are like my own.”

“And?”

His lips brushed along my jaw and I had to lock my knees to keep from sliding down the wall. “And if I did to you all the things I wanted, I couldn’t sit at their table without them knowing that I claimed every part of you.”

5 Stars

Sweet Jesus.  This book rocked. From the characters to the second chance love story – everything about L.A. Fiore’s latest romance, Devil You Know is amazing. I LOVED Damian and Thea.

Their book is the first installment in the Lost Boys series and it is a great introduction to all of the characters.  As teenagers, a friendship forms between Damian, Thea and Cam which ties them together into adulthood.  Their relationships are enough to make you want to get into the series, but it is the connection between Damian and Thea that truly lures you into wanting more. Their bond will have you telling your best friends to read this book.

Because nothing about them finding solace and happiness together is easy. Start to finish, Damian and Thea share a crazy and intense uphill journey to be together.  However, when they find themselves finally in a place where they’re able to give a relationship a try you’ll find yourself practically cheering out loud.

I think it’s because you experience so much of their lives that you’re invested in them as individuals and as a couple.  You want their happiness.  You want them to be together.  You want them to get past their problems.

Not only is the book well written and thought out, the characters are incredible.  Addicting. They’ll make you laugh, swoon and pant.  I was consumed by this duo and once I met them, I couldn’t put their book down.

Basically, it’s a great love story with a wicked sub-plot filled with drama and in my opinion, Devil You Know is a must read recommendation.  So get your copy as soon as possible.  You’ll be psyched you did.
