Hello Gemmies! I have a new book review to share with you today. There Is No Devil by Sophie Lark is the second book in the Sinners Duet. Sophie Lark has done it again! This was the perfect ending for this spicy serial killer romance. There Is No Devil was so heartbreakingly beautiful and satisfying. I feel like immediately rereading the duet all over again! This is a story that stays with you along after it is done.
There Is No Devil captivated me from the very first page. Our story picks up immediately where There Are No Saints left off. This book cannot be read as a stand alone, you MUST read book one first. There Is No Devil is a full on character study of how people are shaped by the events of their past and the support system they have (or lack thereof). We get a deep dive into Cole and Mara's childhoods. It's emotional, heartbreaking, and also enlightening. You really get a sense as to why these two are obsessed with each other. Our characters deal with childhood trauma, anxiety, obsession, and acceptance. These characters are damaged and a lot of the content in this book is very heavy. The pacing is perfect and all leads to a very satisfying conclusion.There are several trigger warnings for this book including lots of violence, child abuse, sexual abuse, and of course consensual steamy scenes. We also find out more about Shaw and how he came to be. It's thrilling, emotional, sexy, disturbing, passionate, and macabre. Sophie Lark has managed to make me fall in love with a serial killer! It is a true testament to her storytelling and evil genius skills.
I'm so in love with this series! If you are a fan of dark thrillers with sexy vibes and emotional heartbreak give this book a try. Independently Published, There Is No Devil is available for purchase from all major booksellers. And if you have Kindle Unlimited.......it's free! I give There Is No Devil 5 out of 5 gems. Happy Reading!
