Book Review: The Cease Fire Series by Claire Marta

A story of a mixed breed who falls for a man with a dark secret . . .

Synopsis for The Devil You KnowBook One

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 am going to admit it right now . . . This is definitely an 18+ book. You have an assassin, a rendezvous with a dark and mysterious man, and even darker sex. I have read erotica before . . . But holy moly, it raised the temperature. The Devil You Know is book one of The Cease Fire Series. I read the first book, and I could not wait to get my hands on book 2, which came out on 7/19 . . .

Synopsis for The Devil’s Plaything

Lust, sex, lies.

I fell in love.

I bled and broke for him.

I foolishly played his game and woke to find he’s not done with me yet.

He’s dead set on stripping everything I am bare.

I’m nothing but his plaything and he’s pulling my strings.

But things are going to be different.

I’m more than an assassin, a monster with a pretty face. I’m his undoing.

I will rise. Seek my revenge. Outwit his deviant schemes.

This time . . . I plan to win.

The Devil’s Plaything is a another book that will leave you at the edge of your seat. You will scream, curse, cry, slap your forehead, etc. Second book did not disappoint either, which I loved. Again, the book is 18+, it does have sex scenes, but it is more psychological than the first. Let me tell you, you are thrown for a loop just the first couple of paragraphs. You are wondering, is this the sequel? Huh? Then everything starts making sense. Then BOOM, the author throws yet another curveball.

I love Claire’s The Cease Fire Series, and I cannot wait to see what she cooks up in book 3. I have a love/hate relationship with that character, and I need it NOW lol.
