“You think I’m a hooker?”
The fiercely brooding guy I met at the bar needed to check his asshole behaviour. Still, he fast turned into the distraction I needed from my life. But it wasn’t romance. Couldn’t be. Running was my MO. This time I’m hiding in paradise, hoping I can stay alive, and trying to ignore the one person I’ve never been able to — my brother.
The problem is, I didn’t know who Nate Cane really was, and I didn’t know what was coming for me either.

“You try it again, and I’m done.”
That’s what I said to my brother when he challenged me. I meant every damn word. This time it’s my rules. My life. My game.
Screw loyalty.
But the woman I met at that bar hid her devious eyes from me. She wasn’t who I thought, and life has a way of determining your future, no matter the odds. Gabriella Alves might have started as a calculated fling — dirty, far from innocent, and mine — but then hell came after her and invaded my world. And a Cane always protects what’s his.
Odds be damned.

Loyalty. Family. Dark. Erotic. Romance.

I read the first book Innocent Eyes and I loved that story I think I rated it like 3.5 stars so I was really interested to see what the next book would be like and I loved this one. I loved Devious Eyes so much more than Innocent Eyes but I didn’t think I would at first.

It took me about 25% into the book to actually like Gabby, I really struggled to connect with her but eventually, I did. I really liked how strong she was and although she didn’t want to accept the help she did when Nate practically forced her to accept it. I felt she had many highs and lows during this book at one point in the book she was feeling strong and nothing can touch her and then by the end she knew she needed help and was more than happy to rely on Nate and need Nate.

Nate was an interesting character nothing like Quinn was. Although Nate was very calculated being an accountant and wanting to know everything every step of the way but he had a very soft and caring side and I loved the balance of both of these sides. There were only a few times when you saw him lose his cool and that’s when Gabby was in danger.

I loved their relationship it completely started out as just sex and then it changed and developed during the process of this book. The connection they felt, but also the anger and attraction at times it drew them together. The emotions and feelings they both felt for each other, it was so cute. I loved their relationship and honestly, they were hilarious at times and I still think out of the whole of this book my favourite is when he calls her a hooker! I also found it slightly amusing that she uses it later in the book.

The book was written really well I love this dynamic duo, I loved how they write and how they work together. I think I should read one of their books each and see what I think then. The sex scenes between Nate and Gabby were written really well.

This wasn’t as dark as I expected it to be, at least not until the end it got a bit darker it was very light until that point then it kind of hits you with that darkness.

I don’t want to say much about the plot other than Gabby is involved with diamonds and is hiding. I think it’s best going into this not really knowing much about it, which is what I do with the majority of these books.

I loved seeing the relationship of Quinn and Nate more in this book their dynamic as brothers it was very interesting combination and you could tell Quinn in his own way was trying to protect Nate. I loved their bond as it grew and developed in this book and they were willing to die for each other.

The book gave me so many feels and I fell in love with this story and I can’t wait for the next Cane novel! It’s been setting the book up great!

5 stars
