The beginning of this book almost made me think I was reading something else, it’s not what I was expecting! It does make sense though just keep reading! It’s just another one of Claire’s unexpected plot twists, but it fits, it fits so well!
The Devil’s Plaything draws you straight back into the Intricate paranormal world created by Claire. I had no idea where this book would take me and these characters. The characters have continued to grow and evolve, they showed just how much as they continue to face what Claire throws at them.
Claire’s writing style flows almost effortlessly, she has an incredible talent for writing paranormal with some seriously mind-blowing twists and turns. This book has things that I could never have anticipated happening! Her characters continue to get under my skin and I even found myself liking some of the bad guys; I mean who could resist Lucifer??
I have loved this book; well 2 books; so much. These characters are amazing, Claire is so talented as a writer!
Even though this book is paranormal romance/erotica, I would highly recommend it to anyone, even if erotica isn’t your thing, you might be surprised by this series.
I’m still not sure I’m ready to say goodbye to the characters yet, Claire please write more Mavi and Lucifer.
The Devil You Know; Ceasefire Book #1
My name is Mavi StClair.
I’m a monster with a pretty face. An assassin in trade. Guilt, remorse, it’s never touched me. I’m as cold as they come and just as professional.
Dealing death has always come easily, and I inflict it with ease. It fuels and feeds the twisted darkness inside me.
My downfall begins with a single night of untamed passion leaving me hungering for more of him.
One wicked soul recognizing another.
Now he owns me.
The lines of what I know are blurred.
I’m playing his game.
A pawn, eternally tangled in a web of secrets and lies.
He won’t let me go.
Taking pleasure in my fall from grace.
Question is, can I save myself before I’m damned completely?

I’ve been really naughty! I read that book when it first came out and I’m only now writing my review and its July!!
This book was an incredible read, it dark, twisted, emotional and erotic. The Devil You Know pushes the boundaries of your imagination, it reveals all the hidden corners in your mind, the places where your dark desires hide.
This story has created a world and characters that suck you in and keep you there. It also leaves you wanting; no needing; more. I reached the end, but I still didn’t feel ready to leave these characters behind.
This book has been written extremely well. Claire’s characters are so full of emotion and personality, each character shows that they are multi-layered and displays the many different traits depending on the situation they face.
These characters have definitely worked their way under my skin and they will continue to have a place in my heart long after the story ends!
