*******This book is the second in the series and includes a cliffhanger ending******

"I’m getting married to him. I’m marrying the man I despise, the man that as much as I try not to be, I’m drawn to; lost in his power over me, lost in this indescribable feeling, that is between us. Now I’ll have to be with him, in his home, in his world as his wife."

Addie has dived into the world of Daimon Evans, becoming his wife in every aspect, safe one. Can Addie fight the bond they are now creating? Or will Addie give into the devil she calls Daimon?

Daimon has his demons that lurk behind his calm and ruthless veneer, what will Addie do when she finally sees them for herself?

Note from the Author: This is a dysfunctional love and hate trilogy that involves emotional blackmail and a few other situations that the one wouldn't do to the person they liked or loved. Addie and Daimon do what they do under the guise of a love that hurts so good. Happy Reading.

No,” I said feeling more of his warm cum seeping out of me. I moved away from him to get to the bathroom, but he seized my hand and pulled me back. He then placed his hands on either side of my face and made me look at him.
I’m a greedy man Addie. Once I have what I want, I want more of it and you are what I want. My need for you is a lot greater than you know.” His deep voice reverberated inside me, as I stood there thoroughly fucked by Daimon. I tried to move my face but he held on.
Haven’t you realized it yet? You don’t hesitate anymore. You want my touch. You want this. So why can’t you just let it happen?” he bit out.
Because I hate you,” I snapped. “I hate how much you pull me into your world. I hate how much I seek it out now!” I cried out.
Is it that bad? Being pulled in by me? Why can’t you just let it happen? Why do you need to fight what’s between us?” he said roughly.
Because I can’t!” I fired back.
Why?” he demanded.
Because I’m scared. I’m scared of you, of me, of us,” I shouted.
Daimon finally released me from his hold. I pulled down my skirt and headed away to the bathroom. I closed the door, wanting to sever what was happening between us.

5+ Deal with the Devil Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

I thought that I would somehow be sickened by him, but that was what worried me the most. I wasn't. Throughout high school, he'd bullied me, and it was clear he planned to do the same throughout this marriage. I should have been angry, but I wasn't.

Just when Addie though her deal with the devil couldn't get any worse, he backs her into a marriage. Now she will become Mrs. Evans for no less than three years , she will play the doting wife out in public and be everything Daimon needs her to be, do what he asks of her... save one. What Addie doesn't understand in the reactions her body is having to him, reactions she doesn't want to acknowledge but struggles with all the same. Theirs is business marriage, a contractual arrangement, and she needs to remember that before she makes the mistake of getting her heart involved. But living with Daimon is far from easy, and the more she gets to know him, the more she realizes he fights off some pretty heavy demons every day, it's almost enough to make her want to help him, be there for him, but then Daimon is still Daimon he every time she starts to soften towards him his true colors come shining through. Lost in a world she is completely unaccustomed to, surrounded by vultures ready to pick her off at a moments notice, and living with the devil himself, may just be too much for even Addie's fighting spirit.

This was a deal, a business deal, which we both needed. He needed a fake wife and I needed money. I hated him and how he treated me and he hated how I acted with him. So all I had to do was focus on how much of an asshole he was and I should be fine. But my body, my stupid body, craved his every touch. He was a jerk who knew exactly how to play me. He knew buttons that existed in me that I didn't even know about.

These two are going to drive me INSANE!! I have never met a more dysfunctional couple and I doubt I will again. Heed the authors warning, she knows of which she speaks. Still.... I am completely addicted to this story. These two incredibly broken people really do deserve a break, a sliver of happiness, but most of all-some peace. As much as Daimon has pissed me off in the past, and continued to do so here, he clearly is harboring some pretty long held, pretty intense, feelings for Addie ~ doesn't change the fact that he can usually take asshole to a whole new level. I really don't understand his reactions, decisions, and actions most of the time and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we have never been in his head; both books so far have been told strictly from Addie's POV. And Addie, that poor soul has been put through so much in life it's a wonder she has any fight left. She does however continue to frustrate me from time to time. I am just so emotionally exhausted already and we still have one more book to go. We are once again left hanging on the edge of a cliff wondering just what the hell could happen next, I can totally see myself doing some FB stalking in the future for any teasers, or any clues at all as to what I can expect next. I will absolutely be climbing the walls waiting for the final installment of this fabulous, if not slightly disturbing, series and I will forever love Evangelene for the hell she has put me through ;)

Daimon to me was the only one in this world who pushed me beyond anything that I was. He drew out my true self and it scared me. Daimon knew me in ways no one else did or probably ever would. Every day I spent with him, was a day closer to me falling into a black abyss that was Daimon. I didn't want him, but I did. God, I did.
