The Devil's Plaything Cover


Victor Cordero is the devil.
Cruel. Sadistic. Heartless.

Sofรญa Montero is an angel.
Beautiful. Sweet. Intoxicating.

My father stole from him, but papรก was stupid.
He got caught, and now Iโ€™m in trouble.

Sheโ€™s my payment. My plaything.
Too innocent for my games, but it doesnโ€™t stop me.

The man Iโ€™ve hated all my life has come for me.
His threats are meant to break me, but Iโ€™m stronger than I look.

She spits her hate at me, but she revels in our game.
Her strength makes me want to see her break.

Iโ€™m merely a plaything for the devil himself.
Owned by the most dangerous man in Colombia.

I promised to release her once sheโ€™s paid her dues.
But you should never make a deal with the devil.

I will make him feel.
And when that day comes, heโ€™ll break for me.

๐Ÿ’™ (๐“—) ๐“—๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ธ: Victor Cordero, vicious, powerful, merciless. He’s the King of Colombia and he rules with an iron fist. Victor is ruthless and he makes no qualms about it. He demands the respect he is given. Victor is one of those irredeemable characters that you will either love or hate, I loved him! I actually would have liked to have SEEN a bit more of his dark side.

โค๏ธ (๐“ฑ) ๐“—๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ธ๐“ฒ๐“ท๐“ฎ: Sofรญa Montero is a spitfire! She’s vulnerable but fierce and willing to do anything to protect the ones she loves. Although she’s been conditioned to fear the Cordero’s her whole life, she still stands up to Victor, proving that she’s the type of queen he needs by his side. I thought that Sofรญa’s illness was a great twist, but I feel like that kind of got waylaid along the way and didn’t meet its full potential.

Victor is a very dominant alpha, who’s extremely possessive… I’m sure you can guess exactly how that goes down in the bedroom. I loved these two together. Sofรญa is Victor’s perfect counterpart. While Victor needs some light in his dark world. Sofรญa provides that while Victor allows Sofรญa to explore a bit of the darkness that she craves.

Although Victor and Sofรญa’s story is complete, there is another character that I would love to see get his own story… Javier, Victor’s bi-sexual right-hand man… yeah I am here for Javier’s story!! (Hint, Hint Dani Renรฉ!) So maybe (keeping my fingers crossed!) we will get a little more from this dark Columbian underworld Renรฉ has created.

โ€œI thought you were convinced Iโ€™m the Devil?โ€

She nods, turning her face away from me, robbing me of her heated gaze. And all I want are those beautiful gems watching me intently again. To see desire shining in them. This isnโ€™t like me. To be so enamored with a woman. But with her, I canโ€™t stop it.

She’s too young, too fucking innocent, but I’ve never allowed morals to stop me from taking what I want, what I need. Why now do I question myself? She’s breaking me down, when I was meant to break her.

My body is tense when I voice my next question. โ€œAnd what does that make you, Sofรญa?โ€

My body is tense when I voice my next question. She awards me with a glance, green orbs burn with emotion. Fire. It burns me from the inside and out. Deeper, more potent than before, because she knows how she feels. โฃโฃ

She’s falling.
And so am I.

โ€œThe Devilโ€™s Plaything,โ€ she whispers. โฃโฃโฃ
