The Devil Behind Me (The Devil Trilogy #1) by Evangelene Review

The Devil Behind Me
(The Devil Trilogy #1)

by Evangelene 

***This book is the first in the series and includes a cliffhanger ending***

"My name is Addie Sakis, I had a promising future once. I had my whole life planned out, but after that tragic day, everything changed. The world I coveted no longer existed. Ten years went by until one day when Daimon Evans, the boy who bullied me continuously in high school, reemerged back into my life, offering me all that I wanted in exchange for one"

Addie Sakis had a sad past, a past that overshadowed her future. She clung to it not knowing how to let it go. That was until Daimon Evans came back into her life challenging her and pushing her back to the fighter he knew still existed inside her. If only she knew that Daimon wasn't the devil she thought, but rather it was her demons that ruled her, the demons that lay inside her soul.

How far will Addie go to help her family? Which line won't she cross as she deals with the devil she calls Daimon?

Note from the Author: This is a dysfunctional love and hate trilogy that involves emotional blackmail and a few other situations that the one wouldn't do to the person they liked or loved. Addie and Daimon do what they do under the guise of a love that hurts so good. Happy Reading.
Part of the proceeds of this book will go to

 Guilt can shape or distort our lives.  It can also torment us for years and force us to act against our nature.  This is Addie's story.  After losing her mother to a freak accident, she blames herself for asking her mom to come home early and fix a special meal to celebrate Addie's high school graduation.  Her mother's death that day on her way home, derailed all of Addie's plans for a bright future; changed the lives of her father and sister; and with ramifications that would last for many years.

The relationship between Addie and Daimon is one very common now a days.  The school bully that terrorizes a young susceptible girl.  This was the boy she had a crush on.  Yet, for the last two years of high school, Daimon relentlessly stayed by her side, claiming her as his, and making her life miserable with all the pranks he played on her.

Now, ten years later, their paths cross again.  It is unclear at first why he has started pursuing her again.  He comes through as a (pardon the word) prick. He is offensive, rude, while always putting her down by hurting her feelings with his callous comments.  He has a proposition in mind that Addie will not be able to turn down.

I have to admit this jerk just drove me crazy.  I kept saying to myself Addie's character has to finally grow some courage and just punch him and get rid of this guy.  He will not leave her alone.  He is so changeable in his moods it is almost like this man is bipolar.

I could not put this book down.  I kept hoping Addie would somehow find a solution and just solve her problems without depending on Damion.  I just needed to find out what would happen next.  You will be hooked by this story of survival and the tradeoffs Addie must make on behalf of her family and to assuage her guilt.

Book #2 in this trilogy is expected at the end of November 2014.
