Ceara would do anything for her younger brother Kevin, even if saving his life means shattering his dreams. The skyrocketing success of Kevin’s band is a dream come true, but Ceara sees the truth. His increasing drug use will destroy him.

Ceara traces the source of Kevin’s rise to fame back to nightclub owner Alexander. The gorgeous entrepreneur hides a terrible secret. He buys souls for the Devil, and he purchased Kevin’s in exchange for fame and fortune. Desperate, Ceara offers her own soul in exchange for Kevin’s. For the first time in his lonely existence, Alex risks everything to refuse. He agrees to help Kevin achieve true success, but the price for Ceara is high. She’ll have to barter her heart to the man who wants to possess her body as well as her soul, knowing she could lose everything.

 

Review:   Devil’s Due is a very exciting read.

I can see where Ceara is coming from. I am the oldest in my family and I would do whatever it took to help my siblings out. If I had to trade my soul for their’s I would in a heart beat. I would do anything to keep them from making mistakes and to keep them from having any pain. I know that there is no way to do that though.

Alex regrets giving his soul to the Devil. He knows where Ceara is coming from because he did his for love to and it wasn’t worth it in the end. He will do whatever it takes to save Kevin’s soul and not take Ceara’s in exchange. So he calls for reinforcements from the other side.

I enjoyed that the Devil got some of his own medicine. I was glad that Alex finally started standing up to him and doing what he could to outsmart the Devil.

The plot to the story was one that kept my attention through the whole book. I enjoyed the suspense on wondering what would happen next. I thought I knew what was going to happen next. I didn’t I was surprised through it all.

I was so hoping that there would be another book after this one so I could see what happened to everyone else in the story. There was a good start to another book. I am left hanging just wondering.

Other than not feeling that this was an ending I enjoyed this book. Seeing the Devil gets his just desserts is the icing on the cake.

This book deals with real issues like drug use, alcoholism, and everything else that comes with fame.
