Becker Gray’s Sweet Devil ARC Review

Thank you to Becker Gray and the Dangerous Press team for the advance reader copy of Sweet Devil, the fifth book in the Hellfire Club series.

This is one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I waited many months for Serafina van Doren’s story. From the minute she stepped on the page, I knew her story would captivate.

I am a member of the Dangerous Press review team, but I stand by my reviews remaining honest and true.

“People like to say the devil made them do it…

And they would be right. I can bend anyone to my will. After all, I am the devil of Pembroke Prep.
Only one person dares defy me. The one person I’ve ever wanted to be an angel for. But she despises me almost as much as I crave her.

Serafina Van Doren is the one temptation I can’t indulge, not with the secrets that I keep. But with the clock running out maybe it’s time to tempt her to the dark side.

Everyone loves to dance with the devil at least once, right?”

Check out my more detailed thoughts below…

  • Characters: This is Serafina and Rhys’ love story. Serafina van Doren has been a staple of this series from book one and I was super excited to finally get into her head. Becker Gray did a great job depicting Serafina’s dichotomies, she may come from an incredibly wealthy family but she is still African American. I loved Sera, how she had all the emotions mostly anger and how she needed an outlet to expend it. A lot of us suffer from that, the need to stuff down everything we are feeling. Many readers will relate to Serafina. Rhys completely surprised me. He put himself through so much internal strife. One of my favourite parts of the book was watching Rhys’s journey of not just letting Sera in more, but also his fellow Hellfire club members.
  • Setting: This story is set at the Pembrooke boarding school. I have adored this setting throughout the story, this series is boasted one of my favourite high school settings yet. I love sneaking into dorms, hooking up in the library, and lusting away in class. The best part of the setting has been the ensemble cast. I loved every scene where we got to hang with the characters of Wicked Idol, Callous Prince, Brutal Blueblood and Ruined Sinner.
  • Pacing: This story was the perfect length. Not too short or too long. I really enjoyed the way the plot elements were laid out. The story progressed at a really good clip. I was hooked from quite early on, and the second half I just devoured in one night.
  • Romance: This was a romance I have been dying to read from the minute these characters stepped on the page in Wicked Idol. I knew it would be hot and deliver every wish I could possibly want to be fulfilled. I loved how Becker Gray incorporated Rhys and Sera’s backstory into this tale. The way they spent most of high school pining over each other while pestering each other. This book took a darker, much more serious turn and I really liked what it did to their relationship. It really tested them early on and I like how the rest of the story played out.

Sweet Devil receives five out of five stars.
