REVIEW - DEVIL YOU HATE by JL Beck & C Hallman

Sitting at the dining table in this farce of a family dinner, Celia can't wait for it to be over and the man sitting beside her gone.  Except in two days' time, she'll be married to this man.  Marco Gardello.  

A few weeks ago her father settled an alliance between the Ricci and Gardello families, her being the sacrificial lamb.  It wasn't until this moment that she understood why her beautiful older sister had taken her life six months ago.

Nic is more excited about getting his revenge than the high he gets in killing his enemies.  As he pulls up to the side gate of a mansion in a prestigious neighborhood with his second in command, Soo, two men are exiting the gate carrying a woman. 

As they drive away he notices there isn't anyone following to save her.  Perfect.  Today is the beginning of the end.  He will take down all of the Five Families of the Chicago mafia, but especially the monster that is Celia's father.  He will pay for killing his family.

This book leaves you with a cliffhanger and a phrase that will confuse you as much as it does Celia.  This book is mesmerizing in its violence.  The characters are very intense and passionate.  The storyline grabs you from page one and you are rooting for Celia throughout the story.

Celia may have grown up in a wealthy family, but she was practically a prisoner in her own home not being able to get away on her own.  When she is kidnapped for vengeance it's not much of a change except they are going to sell her to the highest bidder.  

Nic and his brother are determined to avenge the death of their family and Celia is step one in their plans to bring down the mafia families responsible.

I love this book!  It is full of intrigue and suspense.  Nic is a monster who isn't afraid to kill to get what he wants and he fights his base instinct to have Celia because his quest for vengeance is stronger than his feelings for Celia.  This book is full of passion, murder, betrayal, and hot chemistry.  I can't wait to read book two and find out the mystery that this book leaves us.
