It’s been a year since Kayla Sutton walked away from Gage Channing. Now he’s back, and so is Ian Kaplan, Kayla’s one-time lover from her college days. Gage’s jealousy is his worst enemy, and when he thinks Kayla has chosen Ian, he sets in motion a drastic plan to claim what’s his. Only Kayla never expects him to infiltrate her heart so effortlessly, and she never dreamed there would come a day when he wouldn’t want her.

Gage believes she’s committed the ultimate sin, but will she use his mistake to finally escape the cage of his obsession? Or will she do whatever it takes to make him see he can entrust his heart to her…just as she’s already lost the core of her being to him?

"I needed him to breathe, and my humiliation and submission were small prices to pay. My body would endure him, because without him it would petrify."

I am sitting here just a few hours after finishing THE DEVIL'S CLAIM and I am still in a state of WOWWWWW!!!! This second book in the spine tingling, The Devil's Kiss series, by the UBER talented Gemma James took my breath away; made my heart break; and made my toes curl.

A few times during this book, I wanted to scream at and punch Gage in the face and yet as the story progressed, I saw past the dominating and controlling man and saw what was beneath - the man with a tortured and painful past; the man with a heart and soul that loved Kayla deeply and completely. She was his world, as he was hers.

I loved this book because I got an insight into Gage's tortured past and I began to understand his motivations. And Kayla, just when she thought she had escaped Gage's hold on her, she was back in his life. Despite her initial hesitance, you could see her finally submitting willingly and fully to Gage. I felt that both characters grew and developed SO much in this book and I revelled in it. This book was PERFECT in its pacing, characters and story!! And let's just say Ms. James kept me at the edge of my seat with plenty of twists that I didn't see coming and left me gob smacked!! I can't wait to read the next book in this AMAZING series!! 5+ stars!!

5.0 out of 5 stars DELICIOUSLY DARK AND SINFULLY WICKED !!! 26 April 2016
By jlswainsboro/Judy Lewis - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Title: The Devil's Kiss: Epilogue
Series: The Devil's Kiss
Designation: Book Two of Serial, Not A Standalone, Contains HFN
Author: Gemma James
***Content Warning: I would like to preface my review by saying, if you have sexual triggers and object to explicit adult content and disturbing subject matter including bondage, domination, sadism, masochism, extreme acts of punishment, nonconsensual sex and rape, this is probably NOT the book for you. However, although the author does give the reader a very realistic accounting of the subject matter, it's written tactfully and skillfully. Make no mistake, this is a deliciously dark and sinfully wicked erotic romance with elements of suspense and multiple plot twists that will both shock and surprise you. And I loved every single minute. Also, please be aware, this is a one hundred seventy page story that is the second book of a serial. It is not a standalone read and does end in an almost happy for now cliffhanger.

Okay, I admit, I was somewhat undecided about the rating for this book. No, I was actually conflicted over the entire series which to date, consists of three books, The Devil's Kiss(Book One), The Devil's Claim(Book Two) and The Devil's Wife(Book Three). Having never read anything written by Gemma James, I had no idea what to expect but I'm a real sucker for a freebie. I'm a voracious reader and there's nothing I enjoy more than discovering a great new author so after reading the blurb and the free sample, I was intrigued and decided since the book was offered as a free download by Amazon, I would give it a whirl. And I'm really glad I did. James is a skilled wordsmith and a gifted storyteller as evidenced by the fact I not only read the first free book, but ran back to Amazon and purchased the second and third. I found some of the content rather disturbing but I will concede, it's very realistically portrayed. I was immediately drawn into this story by the two protagonists, Kayla Sutton and Gage Channing. These two characters were absolutely fascinating, completely mesmerizing and played off each other brilliantly. Wealthy businessman, Gage Channing is a sadist in the truest sense of the word, deriving sexual pleasure from the pain and punishment of others and more specifically Kayla Sutton, his personal assistant. The cast includes several other very intriguing characters, all of whom are pivotal to the story. These characters are dark, complex and engaging but the author does an exceptional job of building and developing each player perfectly. And just when you think you have an understanding of both them and their nature - WHAM - the author blows your mind with another revelation. I was glued to my seat, gasping for my next breath with my heart hammering in my chest, and turning the pages so fast, my Kindle couldn't keep up! I hated it...I loved it...I abhorred it...I was enthralled by it...I was sickened by it...I was fascinated by it. I wanted to throw my Kindle against the wall....but couldn't stop reading it! Please allow me to make something perfectly clear, this is not just erotica but so much more. It is an erotic romance with a hypnotic underlying story of heartache and pain featuring a very complex and psychologically damaged cast of players. They are quite simply magnificent. The story is enthralling, spellbinding, addictive, suspenseful and erotic. The dialogue is shocking, seductive, exceptionally well executed and flowed effortlessly. The entire narrative is beautifully written in the first person from the perspective of Kayla Sutton, a beautiful twenty eight year old divorcee and single mother with a very painful and troubled past who has a three old daughter named Eve suffering from a life threatening illness. All the traditional treatments have failed and Eve is in desperate need of a costly experimental treatment not covered by insurance which forces Kayla to resort to the theft of company funds in order to pay for her daughter's treatment expenses. Her crime is discovered by her boss, Gage Channing, owner of Channing Enterprises. Gage confronts Kayla with evidence of her crime but rather than report her to the police, he offers her a deal...sign a six week contract to become his sexual slave or go to jail. In Gage Channings's eyes, he's offering Kayla a deal, a choice, but in reality he's a master manipulator who has been searching for a way to blackmail Kayla into becoming his willing submissive and sex slave. Unfortunately, neither Kayla nor Gage expected to be completely drawn in by their explosive yet undeniable attraction to each other and neither planned to ever fall in love. Is it possible to fall in love with someone you hate? And is it possible to truly love someone yet desire to punish and hurt them? Nothing in this story is as it seems. There is so much more at play that is carefully, masterfully and skillfully revealed over the course of the three books. And OMG! I could not stop reading it! I cried! I sobbed! I screamed profanities and shook my fists in anger! And several times, I wanted to throttle the characters and throw my Kindle at the wall but isn't that what entertainment actually is? Engaging with the characters, empathizing with them and becoming so caught up in the story itself that you lose track of time? That's exactly what happened to me when I read this story. So in reviewing this book, I ask myself, what did I love about this story? Pretty much everything, even the parts that were hard to read! What didn't I like? Again, some of the scenes were almost too painful to read but I couldn't stop, I had to continue. I had to know what happened! Would I recommend this book? You bet and I am but only to adult readers! Will I read this author again? Absolutely! As I said, I've already purchased the second and third book. And I'm sure I'll be reading many more books from this author in the future! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!

***I'm not a professional reviewer but I do know what I like, what love and what I don't and I loved this story. And if I truly love a story, I give it five stars. This is only my opinion with my review being based on not only on my enjoyment of this book but also on its exceptional presentation and craftsmanship.
4.0 out of 5 stars HOLY FREAKIN MOLY! 7 July 2016

Never in my life has a book made me this agitated and angry. I was screaming at my kindle. Kayla has to be THE BIGGEST idiot ever. She's a coward because she wouldn't stand up to Gage and protect herself. I can see her enjoying the BDSM and all the kinky things that go with it but to trust that monster was FREAKIN INSANE!! No way in hell should she have let him take her and Eve and she sure as hell should never have given her freedom to him. I would never in my life let any man tell me who I could and couldn't talk to, Who I could and couldn't be friends with, make me tell him where I'm going , how long I'll be spending at each place and exactly when I'll be home. Tell me what and when to eat. HOLY CRAP! He truly is the Devil. I do recommend this series to everyone but prepare to be screaming mad.

“Our love never ends, and neither does my possession of you.”

Enraptured....spellbound...shattered .....utterly and completely transfixed! These are a mere sampling of the array of hyper intense emotions I experienced when I embarked on the UNPUTDOWNABLE second installment in the Devil's Kiss series by Gemma James!

THE DEVIL’S CLAIM is a perfectly fitting title because holy moly is there a lot of claiming that transpired in this scorching hot book! After a year in prison to pay for his nefarious past transgressions, the Devil himself, Gage Channing, is back to claim what's his and to heck with the consequences! While at first Kayla Sutton is not willing to uproot her and her daughter from their new life in Texas and jet back to the Devil’s lair for another round of torturous pleasure, the pull between them is stronger than ever. So she fights it every step if the way. At least at first. Because Gage was not the type of man to give up on what he wanted and had his methods for tempting his defiant paramour to do his bidding.

"Each day we spent together, each small change I saw in him, slowly erased what he’d put me through last year. Something about him was different. The sadism was still there, the need for power and controls still an innate part of him, but I’d also witnessed slivers of compassion and humanity.”

My love and fascination for Gage and Kayla was magnified to the umpteenth degree in this novel! Their soul-burning, ALL-CONSUMING, toxic love affair reaches a fever pitch in this riveting second installment, and as the plot unravels, we are privy to deeper layers of their complex relationship.

Once again, Gage Channing is utterly intoxicating in all his depraved, diabolical ALPHA male glory! Loved his uber-dominance, that predatory glint in his indigo blue eyes, his wicked sensual torment!! I was so swept up in this story that my pulse would flutter with excitement and I would shiver with dread throughout because Gage is like a hungry, uncaged tiger. You never really know when he will strike next or what will unleash his fiery passion and PRIMAL rage and bottled up fury! And there was one savage moment in particular in this book that was so agonizing I almost could not get past it. But sighhh this man certainly had his softer moments, his way of weaving that spell around you, so you can forgive just about anything. And sometimes it was hard to wrap your head around the fact that he could be so infuriatingly unrepentant one moment, and the next make pancakes and be so heartmeltingly sweet and doting with Princess Eve !

I was hoping in this book that the author would delve deeper into Gage's diabolical psyche and his secret torment to shed light on what shaped him into the half-crazed, ultra controlling , irrationally jealous sadist, and let me say Gemma James did not disappoint!!! While I might still revile his heartless cruelty when he is pushed to the brink, I understand him so much better, and even though I may never fully comprehend what keeps Kayla coming back for more, why she is willing to freely submit to his every whim and desire after suffering such stern wrath at his hands, now I truly believe that there’s a good man hiding lurking inside his "rotten" soul.

Oh...and let’s get something straight. Kayla is far from spineless. She is FIERCE and BRAVE and RESILIENT. While in book one she was his unwilling salve, blackmailed to be his slave under extreme duress, in this book after a bit of strong-arming on Gage’s part, she is ALL IN and as obsessively addicted to his brand of tortuous love as he is to owning every single part of her.

There are many tumultuous twists and turns throughout, and shocking revelations both deepen their bond and thrusts a wedge between them. The push-pull between this volatile couple is as intense as ever but the brutal power exchanges are beautifully interlaced with moments of aching tenderness and breathtaking poignancy, and it was that IRRESISTIBLE blend of rough and carnal and soft and sweet that elevated this relationship to the next level for me.

"He kissed me until I was breathless, until I couldn’t remember what we’d been talking about, and I kissed him back just as greedily. I was lucky I still remembered my own name.”

This journey these two embark on together is beyond intense. There is fiery discord and dangerous peril and so much heartache and angst I broke down in tears at times. But this book is hardly all doom and gloom. The sex is HOT, HOT, HOT!!! And I don’t want to spoil anything, but there is one delectably wanton master/sub role reversal that takes place book that had me writhing in giddy delight! And through all the ups and downs, euphoria and despair, my heart was fully engaged and I prayed that this deeply flawed yet hopelessly in love duo could find a way to make it work.

“His love was selfish and obsessive but also unconditional in a most conditional way. I couldn’t even explain what that meant, but my heart understood. His love was sick and tainted and all wrong, but it was mine. He stood at the epicenter of my world, cast it in crimson, and I was ashamed to admit I rather liked living in red. I was addicted to him. "

And even when in their darkest hour when you fear that there is no way they could ever heal the broken parts of each other's souls, or that Kayla can soothe the beast that raged inside of her formidable master, their love would miraculously penetrate the darkness. Despite everything, Kayla makes Gage want to be a better person but is that even attainable for an unapologetic sadist who lives by his own warped code of honor? Two books into this dark and thrilling journey I am beginning to see the this couple will never fit into a traditional mold but hope rings eternal that they will find her own version of twisted happiness someday. And in the end it comes down to this:

"I’m beyond salvation, so don’t think you can fix me.”

"You don’t need to be fixed. You just need to be loved.”

In closing I am beyond pumped that that I am only midway through this sinfully delicious series because there is so much MORE story to be told. So bring it on, Gemma James...your brilliantly wicked sorceress! I cannot wait for you to continue to cast your deliciously entrancing spell on my captive heart!!

Gage really is a sadistic man but, he hasn't figured out the more he hurts Kayla, truly hurts her emotionally he only destroys more of himself. Kayla loves Gage fully. There is a part of this book that cuts deep deep within Kayla; it opens Gage wide open as well. Kayla gets to learn things about him she wouldn't have learned otherwise but, it is the most hurt he caused her and it these wounds don't heal like bruises. Ian saves Kayla' s life, begs her to get help; he feels like she is brainwahsed...he simply doesn't understand their relationship. Gage is a sadist and Kayla is a masochist, it really is that simple. Let's see where book three leads us. Book two could have been the end, what's up the authors sleeve for three?!

OMG! What a follow up from the beginning of their relationship. The secrets of the hat come out will make your head spin. The characters continue to have that realism one might imagine. The chemistry is dark, scary and scorchingly hot. Looking forward to continuing this story between Kayla and Gage to see how their story truly ends. Fo they find their HEA. Read to find out.
