Devlin UnLeashed by Bethany Bazile is a deliciously dark romance, maybe even better than a bar of dark chocolate... hmm... maybe... or at least delicious with a bar of chocolate.
Devlin Ward was a ruthless man.
A man born among violence with a heavily burdened mind.
Dark and dangerous, yet utterly alluring.
I’d fooled myself once, only allowing myself to see the beauty in him despite the shadows I’d glimpsed in his eyes.
When that darkness took over, I ran.
And now he’s found me.
He’d trusted me with his love and now he wants it back. And he’s all too willing to crush my heart to make his whole again.
Juliana betrayed me.
Went against everything I believed in and pushed the monster I tried to keep hidden out into the open.
Our love was twisted—and I’d made it that way. But I wasn't prepared to let it go.
I hunted her for years, picking up traces of her scent as she moved from city to city to escape me.
Now that I've found her, I’m not sure even her fiery light can brighten the blackout she left me in when she walked away.
Mature content warning: This title is darkly romantic and intended for adults 18+ due to explicit sexual content, language, violence, and dubious consent.
I enjoyed Devlin UnLeashed even more than I expected. The story had layers upon layers of plot that the author masterfully peeled away throughout the romance. Juliana and Devlin are either the most perfectly obvious couple or the absolutely impossible couple. Regardless how you see it. there is no denying these two lovers belong together. The power in their interactions is nearly palpable. The suspense and mystery surrounding them added to urgency in their relationship. I couldn't book the book down and read it cover-to-cover in a day... housework be damned.
