Review Tour - Devient & Redemption by Jaimie Roberts 27th May


***Warning: Contains strong language, violence and scenes of an explicit nature***

Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after.

This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge...

And revenge can only lead to one thing.


He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him.

His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I’m falling in love.


I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn’t take much more of her.

She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left.

She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.

Natalie's Review 

WOW!!!! Okay, where do i start with this review, I have so much i want to say, so many emotions were felt while reading this book that i feel a bit all over the place.

The whole concept of the story gripped me, i loved (weirdly) the idea of the stranger in your life that you get to play cat and mouse with. I loved Dean/Lotus I loved how dominating he was but at times he was weak and that made him seem more human. From the first pages you are hooked in, Tyler is very likable, and for someone who was portraid as the victim she was actually quite strong. and even though Dean was in control of the situation, its very clear straight away that its Tyler who holds the key to everything.

The sex in this book is scorching, but believable. at no point did i feel that it was too much or not enough the sex actually helped explain the story it helped you connect with the characters.

I loved Jeremy and his whole story was captivating and so emotional, I think that the relationship between Tyler and Jeremy again made the book seem real.

The last 10% of the book is where all my confusion lies. i loved the twist and turns and the final twist i was staring at my Ipad and if it wasn't 2:30 in the morning i would have screamed WTF HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE!!! I was so confused but you know what it doesn't matter because by that point i was so involved in the characters, i just didn't care. I am glad i was able to read the second book straight away as it then helped with my feelings of book one.

I loved this book, it will take you on so many emotional twist and turns some you will hate but for the most of it you will be holding on tight and just enjoying the ride.

5 Faneffingtastic hot stars

How could anyone move on from a betrayal so devastating, it cut down to the bone and rooted itself deep within? You could never forgive such heartache…

Or could you?

From the moment Tyler was six, she fell in love with that cocky eight-year-old boy with the black spiky hair, captivating blues eyes, and scruffy uniform. From the moment he punched a boy for hurting her, Tyler knew there was no going back. They were always meant to be together...


Then everything changed. The stage was set like a tragic Shakespearean play, and Tyler’s and Dean’s world—as they knew it—had ended.

Or had it?


My name was Jessica now. I faked my own death, changed my identity, and moved thousands of miles across the ocean just to escape the one man I would never get out of my heart. I had a four-year-old son I adored more than anything in the world. On one fateful, horrific night, the life I knew disappeared in the blink of an eye. I left people behind. People I cared about. People I would never forget. People I loved.

But had I truly moved on?

No one said leaving behind the one man you had loved since you were six would be easy. I lived life day-to-day. I even met a man and tried to settle down. Evan was a man any woman would desire. So why could I not love him the way he obviously loved me? Why couldn’t I move past the dark-haired, blue-eyed boy who consumed my every thought? I may have left him, but he had never truly left me.

I could never love another man. Dean made sure of that the day he breezed into my life. I was only half a woman now. I had been broken and bruised by the one man I thought I could always love and trust. How could I let go of something like that? I suppose I just had to. I was just getting by with each day that passed. I was coping. I was managing, and that was keeping me from falling apart.

But then disaster struck again. And it was on that day…

Everything changed.


You can’t hide forever, Tyler. I will always be hunting you, always be searching, and will never give up. If there was ever one certainty in your life, it was that. You slipped through my fingers, not once but twice. You took my heart with you when you left me that day. No amount of alcohol, women, or punching bags would block you from my mind. You couldn’t be dead. I wouldn’t allow you to be dead. You’re out there somewhere. I must congratulate you that you had evaded me for this long. You always were a smart girl. How could I not have fallen in love with you? You did escape me this time, but I will find you, Tyler. I promise you that. And when that day comes…

I will finally make you MINE.

Natalie's Review  

This book picks up four years after Deviant ends.. Tyler has a new life, a new identity but when events happen that lead Dean directly to her door she has to fight her desires and ignore her heart to try and keep him at arms length. 

Dean however isn't one to give in and doesn't give up easy,  he fights for Tyler harder than she fights her feelings and as soon as these two are together the sparks are flying.  

I loved that this book explained the ending of the first one, briefly again not much details were given to explain the last book but i don't know what it is with this author every word you read grips you in and you feel like it doesn't matter what happened you just crave to know whats ahead.  

Redemption was hot, Vajaja doing the fandango HOTTT the sex between Dean and Tyler has always been smoking you actually feel jealous that it happening to Tyler when you so wish dean was real and he was in my bed, or that might just be mean,  WHY CANT HE BE REAL!!!!!

The last part of this book was fast paced, gripping and grabbed you in. I really really enjoyed how it ended.  I loved all the characters in this book they were very well developed

Another fire burning 5 stars from me.
