I was light, and I was pure. Until I wasn’t.
I’m Millie Hart, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve dedicated my life to my Catholic faith. It was a part of me every step of the way. So when I decided to join a nunnery, no one in my family was surprised. I’m not sure at what point my life changed or where it went extremely wrong. My nightmares are becoming realities as my world starts to slowly tremble under the ground I’m presently shackled to. I was taken. Everything I thought I knew was about to rain down on me in drops of lies, deceit, and undiluted evil.
I’m more machine than man. I’m the alpha and the omega of The Army, and the leader of The Sinister Six Masked Huntsmen. I live and bleed this
life. The arms that raised me weren’t carrying love— they were carrying knives and AKAs. I’m agent 000, the executioner, and the damn devil who walks in the flesh. No one can break through my hard shell— not even her.
*This is book Three in The Devil’s Own series but can be read as a standalone.
I have really enjoyed this series and Razing Grace Part One just keeps the momentum going. Although this book can be read as a standalone, it is tied somewhat to the first two books. I suggest that you start with them before you read Razing Grace. You won’t feel lost but if you are like me, and want to know the full backstory, then you’ll want to start at the beginning.
Millie Hart has devoted her life to the Catholic faith and is a Nun for her attending church. She has always been the good girl, the faithful girl, the dependable girl. This faith unknowingly puts her life in danger. She is abducted and forced to endure things that no one should ever have to go through. Innocent or not. As she is forced to process what is happening to her, she learns that evil might not be as bad as she thought it was. Will her innocence keep her strong or will evil prevail and taint her?
Raze is part of the 6 masked men who have taken Millie. He’s a trained killer who is well respected and knows at “The Executioner.” He was bred to lead the life in the army and to kill men. That’s the only purpose he’s only known. He’s hard core and shows no emotion and he’s not about to let little Millie Hart worm her way into his heart. Or at least, that’s what he keeps telling himself. Will he continue down he path of destruction and evil to be the man he was bred to be or will Millie break through and show him that he can in fact love?
Before I get started, all I need to say is Miles. I can’t and won’t give away any spoilers but Miles holds a special place in my heart.
Now that I got that out of the way, let’s talk about Raze. My dark, evil, handsome, and sexy as hell devil. This man is on a mission. Literally. He’s made a name for himself and he has no problem doing what every it takes to get to his desired outcome. From the moment they take Millie, you can see that they have a deep connection. Despite the things that happen between them, both good and bad, they were always electrifying. He broke Millie in what they both consider a good way.
“Because they showed me what it’s like, what it feels like to have someone make you feel good and dirty all at the same time. They tapped into a dark side of me that I didn’t know was there, and now, there’s no way that darkness can be drawn out. I don’t even think I want it to leave.”
Everything that Raze does is perfectly calculated. He’s trained to be that way. Everything has a purpose and everything must be executed perfectly. Watching him fall for Millie was swoon worthy. We all want to see the bad boys break a little, right?
“Dark? I don’t turn dark, Millie. I am dark. I just turn light for you and only you. Don’t even mistake that.”
Are you swooning yet? If not, let me add in some of his sexy, dirty mouth. When I read this, I shared it with my co-blogger and told her I about melted.
“She acts like she’s innocent, and hell, we all know she is, but there’s another side to little Millie Hart and I want to tear that side into pieces and then fuck it back together again.”
Yep, that right there. Enough said.
I went back and forth about how I felts about Millie. At first I didn’t understand her submission when she was taken. There was no sense of flight or fight and although it could be argued that she had given up, I could counter with the fact that there were several times that she wished she would be killed. If that was the case, she could have not submitted as easily, giving a fight that could have pushed one of the guys over the edge and give her exactly what she wanted. However, she comes back to life int he book and turns into one sassy little woman. She doesn’t take any crap and she can hold it together. I wanted to see that part of her from the beginning. She does seem to be the only one that can tame the beast, tame the devil.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and this series. This does leave you on a hell of a cliffhanger so I can’t wait to get my hands on Part Two so I can make sense of everything. There are a lot of different plots that all tie in together. Well done, Amo Jones. You keep me coming back for more and more.
