Devil You Know by LA Fiore is Live!

Title: Devil You Know
Series: Lost Boys #1
Author: L.A. Fiore
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 10, 2017
Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn't expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm's-length.

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

Before I could scan the crowd for Damian, a hand wrapped around with cuts and blood on the knuckles. It was Damian and he looked pissed.
“What the fuck are you doing here?”
My heart hurt seeing his face—a cut near his left eye, blood smeared down his cheek and a blooming bruise on his jaw. “I heard you and Cam talking. I was curious.”
He had been walking me toward the exit but those words stopped him. His feet sort of rooted themselves to the concrete floor as his head turned in my direction. “So you walked here alone?”
“It wasn’t far.”
That wasn’t the right answer apparently because he hissed between his teeth. It wasn’t an actual word, just a release of frustration.
He started toward the exit again. “What are you fighting when you are out there?”
We had just reached the stairs when he pulled me behind them and pressed me up against the wall. “Come again?”
“When you fight, what are you fighting?”
“Not who am I fighting?”
“No, your opponent isn’t what you’re fighting.”
He leaned in and lowered his head to look me right in the eyes. “How do you know that?”
I gently wiped the blood from his face. “I know you.”
He had the strangest reaction to that. He closed his eyes, like he was in pain, and lowered his forehead to my shoulder. “This can’t happen.”
Those words caused a chill to move right down my spine. He was wrong. It totally could and should happen. “Why not?”
He lifted his head and for the first time I saw so much more in those eyes. “Cam is a good friend and your parents are like my own.”
His lips brushed along my jaw and I had to lock my knees to keep from sliding down the wall. “And if I did to you all the things I wanted, I couldn’t sit at their table without them knowing that I claimed every part of you.”

So, this was my first book by LA Fiore, and I have to say it was a good read. There are some things that didn't convince me 100%, but in general I liked it!

Damian and Thea are one of these couples that make you swoon and sigh in happiness, because their love for each other is so deep and special, and nothing can really stop them from trying to be together. 

The book is divided in two parts, one long prologue, where we read about the first part of Damian and Thea's love story, and the real focus of the book, so the period after Damian's deployment.

One thing that I really liked about this book was the presence of great secondary characters, that gave even more to the story and played a huge part in the book.

Even though I liked the story, there are two small things that made lose a little interest, if i can say so:
- I felt like the narration was a little too fragmented, especially in the first part. I think it was because sometimes there were sequences of really short scenes, with also change of point of views, that as a whole I appreciated because they gave me insight of both Damian and Thea's thoughts, but that didn't help with my "problem". It is probably a feeling of mine, but sometimes it felt like a movie because of the several  short scenes one after another.
- unfortunately I didn't appreciate at 100% the suspence part of the book because I got the "culprit" around the middle of the book :( 

Neverthless, this was a good structured book, with well developed characters and a good storyline :)
