REVIEW: Devil Without a Cause by Terri Garey

Title: Devil Without A Cause
Author: Terri Garey
Series: The Devil´s Bargain (book 1)

This is the first book in Terri´s new Devil´s Bargain series. It is a spin-off of Nicki Styx.

Sammy, a.k.a. Samael, is the Devil himself. The original fallen angel. Pure seduction wrapped up in the form of a blond, gorgeous bad-ass with a devilish grin that makes you think of satin sheets and tangled bodies.. just waiting for his victim to be caught and lost forever.. I have loved Sammy from the first time we met him in Nicki Styx series so I was super-excited that he got his own series!! This book did not disappoint. And it is worth buying just for the gorgeous cover :-)

In order to save her son´s life, Faith is forced to make a deal with the Devil. Yes, the Devil we know :-) Sammy is still the bad boy as usual (which is why we love him) and of course he has his own agenda in mind and so the play begins :-)

Faith´s task is to steal a magical ring from the rock star Finn. But what Sammy didn´t tell her is that without the ring, Finn´s soul is Sammy´s to take because the ring was the only thing keeping him away. 
Finn made a deal with Sammy when he was 16. He wanted to be rich and famous. Now he has everything he ever dreamed of and yet he knows it´s all only temporary because the Devil is waiting behind the corner. He didn´t think about love and picket fences until he met Faith. But when she steals the ring from him, he knows no mercy and no means are too strong to use in order to get it back.

The book covered both Faith and Finn´s love story as well as Sammy´s life in his hellish kingdom. I have to admit that even if the love story was good, what I really LOVED about this book was Sammy´s part. We see more of his background, his memories of the Paradise as well as a BIG surprise (which I hadn´t expected at all!!). Because of what he did for Nicki Styx in her last book, he is now given a chance for redemption. Will he take it or will he stay the King of Lies, the Devil himself?

This book can be read as solitary but you will enjoy it much more if you have read Nicki Styx series first.

My rating: 4 BAD BOY STARS
