I’m the devil’s spawn.
The son of evil incarnate.
The heir to corruption and depravity. 

Gabrielle Duval once belonged to me. And whether she likes it or not, she’s destined to be mine again. What will it take to lure this luscious woman back into my bed? A deal with the devil himself, of course.

My name is JD Wilder, and this is the story of how I reclaim what’s mine.  

Depraved   (The Devil's Duet, #1)Depraved by Eva Charles
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Depraved is an intriguing first part of a story. To really make up my mind and give my final rating, I have to wait until I’ve read the second book of the Devil’s Duet. Mainly, because the first part ends with a cliffhanger, my bookish pet peeve. I know that was expected since this is a part of a duet, but I dislike cliffhangers above everything.

The first chapter almost made me quit the book, JD was so infuriating, I just wanted to strangle the guy. And Gabrielle seemed so weak like she had no mind of her own. But I’m glad that I continued because nothing was as simple as I had first thought. There are evil schemes, vexing behaviour, burning hot passion and family secrets that are meant to stay buried.

I love how the story takes on many paths, and there are a variety of characters that keep your mind churning because there’s no trusting anyone. The whole book is a swamp of secrets, some of them are revealed in the first part but many stay in the dark.

I liked a lot how Eva Charles depicts the history of the characters by memories, showing the readers snippets of their past to explain the present. She writes very well, the emotions are palpable and after the bumpy start, I found it easy to dive into the story and forget the real world. Now I’m incredibly anxious to get my hands on the second book because I need to know how the destiny of JD and Gabrielle plays out

Author Bio

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories. 

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.
