Can the Devil be Forgiven?

Everything is fun and games until someone gets hurt, and what Jameson Kane did to Tatum O'Shea goes so far beyond hurt, he is well into the realm of unforgivable. Tate says she wants him gone for good, and he quickly learns that the old saying, “you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone”, is most definitely true.

But Jameson has never been very good at following instructions, and when Satan decides to seek redemption, he'll go to great lengths to get it. He proposes one last game – one to end them all, if she agrees to play. He is very confident that he can win, but Tate warns him that it's not possible; she will not lose again. Little does she know, Jameson is prepared to do whatever it takes. Prepared to lay the entire world at her feet. Prepared to bear his soul.

What he didn't count on, though, was handing the damn thing over.

Now Jameson can only pray that his evil ways haven't rubbed off on Tate too much. Sometimes, it's very difficult to tell who the Devil really is …

WARNING: contains a semi-reformed devil, a woman scorned, and more Sanders than anyone has a right to witness. Also graphic sexual situations and strong language.

“How about just one last game. No-holds-barred, winner takes all,” Jameson offered.
“How about that's a really bad idea,” Tate replied, but he could tell that she was intrigued.
“Give me a month,” he started. Her eyebrows raised above her glasses and she turned towards him.
“A month to what?” she asked.
“One month to convince you that I'm not the devil,” he stated. Tate burst out laughing.
“A leopard can't change his spots, Jameson. But go head, explain your little game. I could use some cheering up,” she snickered.
“One month to convince you that I'm not the devil, that things can be as good between us as they ever were,” he continued.
“Hmmm. Not very appetizing, I'm not really winning on this deal,” Tate pointed out, still smiling to herself.
Jameson got up from his chair. Slowly walked around the table. She stiffened up when he got next to her, but she didn't move away when he leaned down close to her head. Pressed a hand to the side of her face to bring her in close to his lips.
One month to make you forget that your ballplayer even exists,” he whispered against her ear. Oh yes, he knew all about the ballplayer; Jameson had an online subscription to The Boston Globe.
He could feel something. Her body was connected to his, in some inexplicable way. It always had been, ever since their very first time together. She didn't move at all, but he could feel her skin come to life. Like it was vibrating, humming with energy.
“It's cute that you even think that's possible,” Tate whispered back, but he was already grinning. He knew she was bluffing. He let go of her and stood upright.
“One month, Tatum. Here, with me and Sanders.”
“Ooohhh, I get Sanders in the deal, too?”
“Looked to me like you already had him.”
“Don't be stupid.”
“But what do I get out of this?” she pressed him. Jameson sighed.
“If after one month, you still don't want anything to do with me, you have my promise that I'll leave you alone. No showing up at your home, or your job, or talking to your friends. Any of that bullshit. I'll even do split custody with Sanders. I'll let you go. Once and for all. We let this go, whatever this is,” he told her, gesturing between them.
Tate was silent for a long time. If it hadn't been for the stern set of her mouth, he almost would've thought she'd fallen asleep. But after a long time, she opened her mouth. Closed it. Thought for a second longer. Opened it again.
“You have to know, you won't win,” Tate warned him.
Looks like I already have.
“Won't know for sure until I've tried. But you have to be honest with me, you can't fake anything or lie. You have to let me do whatever I want,” Jameson amended the deal.
“I was always honest with you, and you should never be allowed to do whatever you want,” she replied. He laughed.
“Fair enough. Do we have a deal? One whole month, starting today?” he asked.
“You won't win,” she warned him again, but she held out her hand. He took it in his own.
“Baby girl, I never lose.”



Degradation had plenty of hot, sexy times (some maybe a bit cringe-worthy), but this book doesn't have quite as much, although it's still plenty hot. This time the story seems to be more focused on changing feelings and emotions. There's even more angst and drama in this book, and I was so happy when Tate confronted a certain person in the nightclub, and what went down on the boat after the nightclub incident.

And Sanders? Oh, there is so much more to Sanders than meets the eye, and not all of it is good, particularly his early history before he met Jameson. He seems like the type of person you just can't help but want to mother him and make sure nothing else horrible will taint him.
I will say, prepare yourself for the end, because damn, I thought the Degradation's cliffhanger was shocking, but oh no my friends, this cliffhanger damn near gave me heart palpitations. I am so ready for book three to come out I'm seriously thinking of sending Ms. Fantôme a pan of drunk brownies as a bribe for Reparation to come out just a wee bit before December (like next week maybe?)

So this installment of the trilogy starts off with Sanders' background story, which was all kinds of f-ed up, and tells how he eventually ended up with Jameson. We also learn the events that happened right after the end of Degradation, and how all the parties involved were affected, most especially Tate. If you read Degradation (and if you haven't, finish reading this review then go and read Degradation, stat), you know how Jameson is when it comes to feelings (or lack thereof). So you might be surprised to learn that he might possibly actually have a conscience, and even more shocking, a HEART.

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

Meet the Author:
Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ..., forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
