Kayla Sutton has finally submitted.And now that Gage has his wife firmly under his control again, he won’t stop until he’s extracted every last independent drop from her being.
As each day passes, she learns new ways to accept his dominion. After all, she has a lot to atone for. Flirting with disaster with her ex-lover turned brother-in-law might be forgivable, but it’s not so easily forgotten.
And neither are skeletons. If there’s one thing Kayla has learned it’s that skeletons don’t just come out of the closet; they bust through with the power of a locomotive, mindless of the destruction they cause.
For the sake of her sanity, Kayla must make a tough decision, even if it means leaving everything behind.
The Devil’s Spawn (Devil’s Kiss, #4) by Gemma James This is the continuation of Kayla and Gage’s life. Now Kayla is trying to contain her jealousy of Katherine. She has to endure Katherine using her son which we discover is Gage’s son to insinuate herself into Gage’s personal space as much as possible. This action is causing Kayla to act in ways that do not make Gage happy which result in negative consequences for her. I have to say that I to have a love hate relationship with how I feel about Gage. I have to question if I am crazy for liking Gage especially when he is not being a sadistic SOB. He does love Kayla with all his heart but his way of showing his love is not always conventional. When Kayla hears a revelation from Katherine regarding the extent of Katherine and Gage’s relationship Kayla decides she can no longer stay and packs her bags. After finding out she is pregnant she does go back to Gage and their unconventional life. This time she meets other woman who are married to men like her husband. Regardless to the sick stuff Gage does to Kayla and we have to remember that she is a consenting adult, there are many twist and turns to this saga. I might have a hard time at some points getting through the story but I love it never the less. Gage is charming and has plenty of sex appeal. I love the way the book ends because I look forward to the next installment in their lives to see what will happen next. Never a dull moment in Gage and Kayla’s life. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book and I give this installment 5 stars.
Tanya Rae’s rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
The Devil’s Spawn is the 4th book in The Devil’s Kiss Series. This series must be read in order. These are DARK books so make sure you look at Gemma James warning.
Now that being said if you love dark books like I do then I am sure you will love to hate Gage Channing.
Gage is a man that you will either love him or hate him because he is “The Devil”. He is one of the most controlling characters that I have read about. Oh he isn’t the only one but, he is high up in the ranks for being very controlling. He wants to control every aspect of Kayla’s life. I think if he could tell her when she needs to use the restroom he would. Not that Gemma James went there with his character. That’s just how controlling of a man he can be.
Kayla can’t seem to help herself and she is so attracted to Gage that she gives up her free will. Kayla keeps leaving Gage only to be brought back into his control. I won’t tell you any more about the book but, if you love pretty dark erotic romances. The Devil’s Series is pretty addicting and at times seems like a “train wreck” (quoting another blogger/friend of mine) that you just can’t pass by and have to just keep on reading.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I give The Devil’s Spawn 4.5 stars and I look forward to reading more books by Gemma James.
Review for TaSTy WordGasms
“It really boils down to one thing,” Simone said. “Do you trust him?”
She made it sound so easy, but as I examined my feelings and tore apart his words, dissected his actions, I realized that I did. Mostly. There were plenty of things not to trust him about—anytime he came near me with his cock at the ready and a belt or whip in his fist, for instance—but on a fundamental level, I did trust him.
If I didn’t, why would I keep putting myself through this? Why keep bending and bending and bending?
“I do trust him,” I said, swiping my bangs to the side. “I love him. More than I could ever say. More than even makes sense.”
“Then I’d put the baby mama out of your head. He married you, and though I won’t begin to understand or approve of your…weird relationship, he has always come across as pretty fucking whipped.”
I almost spluttered my tea all over the table at her words. Gage, whipped? But the more I thought about it, the more it clicked, because when you got down to the nitty-gritty, we had each other wrapped. “I guess you’re right. I just wish I could get that woman out of my head. The way she touches him, and the way she glares at me…God, Simone, she makes me see red and green at the same time.”
“You need a fucking hobby.” Simone’s mouth twisted into a scowl, but her gaze softened as she said it to take out some of the sting.
“A hobby?” I asked, absently picking at my half-eaten quiche. Apparently, the subject of Katherine made me lose my appetite. Or maybe it was the smell of overcooked cheese. I pushed the plate away, scrunching my nose. “Why do you say that?”
Simone made a scoffing sound, and I glanced up to find her reclined in her seat, arms crossed. “To hear you talk, it sounds like your whole life revolves around Gage and what he may or may not be doing with Katherine.”
A hobby might not be a bad idea. Maybe I could start collecting trinkets, like dolphins or dragons.
Definitely elephants. Lord knew I had plenty of those in my life. Gigantic ones that ate up too much space and sucked up all the air. One stood between Gage and me in the form of Katherine. But the biggest one sat smack in the middle of Simone and me.
This elephant’s name was Ian, and he’d grown too secure in his comfy spot since that damn note had magically appeared on my door. But it was easier, safer, to focus on my marriage and the interloper named Katherine. The subject of Ian was too dangerous. Too painful.
Simone must have agreed because she didn’t bring him up once.
Gemma James is a USA Today and Amazon bestselling author of a blend of genres, from new adult suspense to dark erotic romance. She loves to explore the darker side of human nature in her fiction, and she’s morbidly curious about anything dark and edgy, from deviant sex to serial killers. Readers have described her stories as being “not for the faint of heart.”
She warns you to heed their words! Her playground isn’t full of rainbows and kittens, though she likes both. She lives in Oregon with her husband and their four children–three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.
