They say money doesn’t bring you happiness but it’s easier being miserable in a penthouse suite than the gutter. I don’t believe for one minute that Daimon’s money is bringing him any happiness at all. Ok so he can lavish the world on to Addie, but what the hell’s his game belittling her? Yes they are at total odds socially standing but that doesn’t give him the right to treat Addie the way he’s treating her.
She’s worked so hard to keep her family afloat, giving up her hopes and dreams and living vicariously through her sister that she’s to be admired not ridiculed. I cannot formulate into words how angry I am at Daimon’s treatment of Addie. He’s preyed on her vulnerabilities, her conscious and that’s just wrong.
Money may have bought him a fake girlfriend, but you cannot put a price on love and your heart isn’t ever for sale. Daimon doesn’t have one redeemable characteristic. He really is the most obnoxious, arrogant b@stard I’ve ever come across in a book!! The devil incarnate. He’s riled me up no end!!
Oh and Addie….poor, sweet Addie. She has been dealt with the worst hand of cards ever yet she keeps plugging away, keeping her Mother’s memory alive, giving her sister the future that she gave up for herself. Her blackness consumed me as I felt a little bit of her die every time she had another hurdle to jump. My heart broke when she felt trapped by an offer that would solve one problem yet bring more tumbling down on her.
This was a true beauty and the beast story. I only hope the beauty bites back.
Bravo to the author for making me so enraged!! That’s down to the writing skill of the author to make me feel so passionately about a situation and a character in a book.
From the moment the book started until it finished I felt the pain and anger Addie had to suffer. Addie goes through a roller-coaster of problems; her family, the family business and Daimon - her high school bully who returns to town after 10 years. However Addie stays strong even though it's torture for her. She does whatever is needed to help her family get a better life, the one she never got to have.
The story isn't a typical love story where the guy comes back and feelings are shown.. It is completely different.
I can't wait for the 'The Husband Beside Me' to come out.

I think my words will be some of the hardest that I have to write, because I am not quite sure how much of this story that I liked. Yes that sounds harsh, but after some searching, I've had to at least liked it a little bit because I finished it, and if I don't like a story, I won't finish it. So point one.
Point two, this plot is one that is hard to digest, not saying that it could never happen; because quite frankly the basis is an everyday occurrence in some lives, but still it's a tough one at times.
OK. The Devil Behind Me starts with a young girl, Addie, who has had a wonderful opportunity given to her for her education and reaped the benefits by being the best in her class. One problem she has is she's constantly bullied, for everything; clothes, where she lives, who she is, but that stops,( when she's in public), when the most popular boy makes it so everyone leaves her alone, only to keep her under his thumb for himself. But I secretly think he has a thing for Addie... Fast forward 10 years and said boy, the devil himself Daimon has reentered her life, only to still be as controlling as ever. Well he finds out that Addie has never left to do the great things with her life that she was meant to do and he makes a proposition by way of contracting her to be his girlfriend in the public eye to get his parents off his back. Addie accepts but with apprehension because well, Daimon is the devil in disguise. Soon the bickering starts (sometimes comically) and soon morphs into something else, Something I don't think they're ready to say out loud. Being the difficult person he is, I think Daimon will do anything to make sure he has Addie to himself forever.
BOOM CLIFFHANGER!!! Ok it didn't really happen that fast, but yes there is one so I'm curious to see how this series plays out...
At the end of the day, like I said, I liked this story but I also had some reservations about it. The golden ticket to The Devil Behind Me, is that some of the proceeds go to the Crohn's and Colitis foundation which links this story since it plays a big role in how life pans out for Addie. 3.5 Stars
Oh Addie. I felt for Addie as I was reading this story. I wanted to jump in the pages and shake her at times, but most importantly I felt for her and the situations she was put in. No one could ever refute she was a dedicated daughter and sister.
Now Daimon. I thought I could see into his character and then he would do something else which made me wonder.
I can't reveal more without giving away the ending. I suggest you read The Devil Behind Me and figure out if the devil is Addie's past or the part Daimon plays in Addie's past, present and future.
But when her old nemesis from high school shows up at her dads restaurant, she begins to doubt if her life will ever be the same! Will it ever even be SANE again? He is driving her nuts with his constant badgering. Didn't he get enough of that in school? Then when he comes to her with a business proposition, one that involves her being his fiancee of all things, she cannot believe he is serious! But he lays it out as a win win for them both. He will pay her debts, all she has to do is pretend to think he is the hottest thing around! So ok, maybe he is, but darned if it don't choke her to pretend! The main problem for both of them is can they continue this charade without letting on how they both are affected by the heat that flares between them!
I laughed and cheered,choked up at times. Isn't that what a good book is supposed to make us do?
Reading this story, I could actually feel Addie's anger. Unfortunately, it was so strong that I could not help but not like her. Enter Daimon. He is annoying and narcissistic to the point you immediately dislike him. The only thing positive about him is that you would have something good to look at as he irritated you to death. However, one does not need to like the characters to enjoy the story. It is the typical rich boy/ poor girl setup, but there are a couple of twists thrown in to keep it different. The poor grammar and comma violations are bad enough to cause a loss in rating. There are random sentences and paragraphs that seem out of place, making it awkward. The author should get her money back from the editors because they truly failed her on this one.
a) not an erotica novel, and
b) is describing the feelings, actions and thoughts of a person (aka female MC and narrator) with no sense of self-worth and self-inflicted martyrdom to its finest
The Devil Behind Me doesn't earn five stars for a few simple reasons. The beginning was crowded and seemed unnecessary. The introduction of Daimon could have been made just as with every other person. Though I understand the need to differ him from other characters, since he's the male MC and tormentor, but it created a very bumpy start. Secondly I felt like some sentences were repeated, just as descriptions and explanations
All characters main and secondary felt well-rounded and (un)believable, simply human. Even though Daimon's behavior is absolutely unbelievable, ridiculous, arrogant and simply annoying, somehow you get a faint sense why he behaves like that - especially because he seemingly is an ass only to Addie.
Addie herself is the perfect self-inflicted martyr for her family. She feels responsible for everything. Her behavior is absolutely believable.
That what these two feel for another cannot be described better as hate-love.
I'll definitely check out the sequel.
