Title: Devil Smoke
Series: Butcher Boys #5
Author: Max Henry
“Value the people who sacrifice their something for you ... because maybe that something was their everything.”
The brief was simple—infiltrate our rival’s crew and steal the info we needed. Easy, right? I thought so, too, until I met Ryan. A woman with the ability to change my view on everything: who I was, who I am now, and what I want to be remembered for when the reaper comes to collect.
I’m a killer, a scapegoat for hire—the man who’ll take the fall for your immoral operation if you offer me the right price. I’ve made enemies along the way, and I’m forever watching my back. In a world as corrupt as mine, love and relationships remain an unobtainable target. So I act the fool, parade as the playboy, but all I really want is to belong to somebody.
She made me think it could be her, that a woman so haunted by her past might actually need a man like me—somebody who can kill with his bare hands, a man who would sacrifice it all to see those he loved kept safe.
That was, until she turned the table and risked it all to help me.
When best-laid plans fall apart, and we’re both put to the test, will love or loyalty prevail?
Oh gosh not sure how I'm feeling right now. This is the third series in a weeks time I've read this past week that is coming to an end.
I loved Bronx. I think he was one of my favorites in this series, along with Malice and as hard as it might be for some to believe, but Sawyer as well. I was glad we got to know him a bit better in this book. Underneath all the layers of him was a sweet, caring, smexy guy.
I really liked Ryan. She was sweet, caring and sassy underneath it all. I really felt for her. She was also tough and a fighter.
Even though it's kind of bittersweet with this series ending. I have to say I think this is, well besides Malice's book, my favorite of the series. I also think that maybe Bronx might be my favorite. I'm also excited because we get to move onto another series and get to know some characters we've gotten to know.
Giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5 and can't wait for King's book!!!!
