This book is a work of intense genius! There is so much chemistry its electric and as usual i was gripped from the start. Max set a standard with devil you know and i have not once been disappointed.
Im not very good at knowing what to write in reviews especially when all i really want to say is "BUY THIS BOOK!" You wont be disappointed.
Everything within this masterpiece gripped me, intrigued me, had me drawn so far into Bronx & Ryan's stories I was lost... no hope of getting out. I didn't want to put it down & couldn't even when I tried. From Prologue to Epilogue Max left me in AWE yet again, the darkness, sadness, courage, loyalty, brotherhood, love... then the twists, all of this wrapped up into something truly wicked to read. After the events that have occured in this entire series, all leading to this final chapter.... I actually have NO words for it!
Again Max gives us some broken characters, not in the same way as before, but they certainly rise to the challenge they find themselves in. Their pasts, choices, everything leading to a certain point in their lives.
I honestly think it wouldn't matter what you write, Max is on my MUST READ/BUY list. Can't wait to see what Max comes up with in her next series.
Love this author, love her books, love this series. An intense story that grabbed my attention from start to finish. This is a fast paced book loaded with drama.
This is Bronx's story and I fell in love with him just like I did with all the other Butcher boys. He's forced to go undercover to get information from a rival MC gang. Whilst here he meets Ryan and sparks soon fly between them. I loved these two and the intense situation they were in made their chemistry so much stronger.
This is a must read book and a must read series I loved it and can't wait to see what this author writes next.
Oh this is by far my favourite book of the Butcher Boys. I really liked this, really liked. It’s weird because I didn’t much care for Devil You Know but as you travel through this series there’s just something that grabs at you and they get better with each set of characters. I think Max Henry saved the best til last for sure.
I think for me it was the theme that ran through this, the white supremacist theme. I’ve not read this kind of theme in anything before and at first I was surprised at the heaviness of the tone but boy was it written well, so well that the author dragged me in straight off the bat.
This book kicked some serious butt, oh my word! I mean Bronx was bad as can be but Ryan simply stole the show, pulled the rug right out from under his feet and made him look like a wet fish. The action was all her, she fought for her life and then she took what she needed. I loved Ryan; she seemed the perfect fit for Bronx once she showed who she really was. The chemistry is off the charts between them and this book will take you on one hell of a ride.
I’m sad to see the end of this series but it’s one I would highly recommend. All good things come to an end unfortunately and I’m now eager to see what else Max Henry brings us.

Ryan is beautiful, curvy and still trying to learn about her past. She is living in hell hoping someone will tell her what happened 12 years ago that turned her life upside down.
Devil Smoke is Bronx's story. This can be read as a standalone but it is recommended that you read the series in order. The story is fast paced and does have some twists. It is told in multiple POVs.
Devil You Know – Malice and Jane
Devil On Your Back – Vince and Sonya (Malice’s Dad)
Devil May Care -- Sawyer (swoon) Short Novella on Sawyer, his father Carlos and Dana. We meet Sawyer in Devil on your Back and he is grade A psychotic. This novella gives you the needed insight on why he is the way he is. THE COVER ... dear Sweet Baby Jesus.
Devil in the Detail -- Ty and Ramona’s Story with some Sawyer thrown in. HEHEHE!
AND I LOVE THEM ALL! -- And now its over! NO NO NO! Lets talk about the covers of all of these books -- how much time do you have ladies? Jeezuz .... Max lets us know, at the end, that we are sure to see the boys in The Fallen Saints Series. We are getting King’s story next. YES! After King we get Hooch and then probably Tap. Im pumped! But lets get to it. Oh and by the way the cover on this release. That’s Don Allen .. Dear lawd help us all. Yes Im still on the cover ... I know Im all over the place but Im distraught and happy all at the same time.
I absolutely LOVE the prologue of this release. The sixth paragraph is riveting. The last two sentences in the prologue … amazing. Freaking love it.
Bronx is a killer for hire. He is a Butcher Boy. Ty has led Bronx into some serious stuff with no one other than Eddie. Hooch, King and the boys all believe Bronx can get in there and get out doing what is expected. Bronx hopes he can walk away from the stuff he is shoving up his nose in order to look the part. It makes him forget, it makes him feel worthy and alive. Wondering how Ty keeps it at bay he isn’t sure he is cut out for the job but if he doesn’t then what? He owes this to the players involved. He owes this to the boys; all of them. Bronx needs to find the network of dealers and when he does he can lay it at Kings feet and walk away from all of the s***. He can venture off to a warm place and an overdue vacation. The problem is he walks away alone. Alone is not want he wants anymore; he wants someone to wake up with, spend his life with and make it matter but he knows he doesn’t deserve it. Who would want him and the hell that comes with him? No one .. that’s who.
Ryan is consumed with the man she continues to see at the bar and now he is here at the party. Why is the question; but she cant be distracted from getting the information she needs. Gunter is a pig but he keeps her safe. Tommy doesn’t belong in their Nazi white supremacy crap but he’s here too. Gunter should shield his brother from Eddie and Easy but he pulled him in. For years she’s put up with their nasty ways of supremacy but eventually she will find out what she needs and the man walking towards her cannot be a factor. She cant let him ruin what she has worked her entire life to find out. She will find what she needs and then she will run.
This book is fantastic; Bronx and Ryan and two very tortured souls but in different ways. The pain they hold inside is almost enough to break you while reading. Max has such a magnificent way of bringing you straight into the pages and into the story. I was gutted at the loss of one particular individual. I hoped please don’t let this happen … but in the end we aren’t the ones allowed to make that decision and bring those feelings barreling out like a tidal wave. The tables turn almost half way into Devil Smoke. Its brilliant.
You need to read this final book. The Butcher Boys have kept us begging for more and now we have them all. I just don’t know if its enough and Im ready to let go. Max you slay me! I just want to wrap these up and keep them in a little box with some other favorite authors. What a wonderful world that would be!
Click this one up and all the others too. Amazing men on these pages; brutal and honest; bad ass and sexy as hell. Thank you Max! I will be waiting for the Fallen Saints with anxiety laced thoughts! Review to post on Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets!
The brief was simple—infiltrate our rival’s crew and steal the info we needed. Easy, right? I thought so, too, until I met Ryan. A woman with the ability to change my view on everything: who I was, who I am now, and what I want to be remembered for when the reaper comes to collect.
I’m a killer, a scapegoat for hire—the man who’ll take the fall for your immoral operation if you offer me the right price. I’ve made enemies along the way, and I’m forever watching my back. In a world as corrupt as mine, love and relationships remain an unobtainable target. So I act the fool, parade as the playboy, but all I really want is to belong to somebody.
She made me think it could be her, that a woman so haunted by her past might actually need a man like me—somebody who can kill with his bare hands, a man who would sacrifice it all to see those he loved kept safe.
That was, until she turned the table and risked it all to help me.
When best-laid plans fall apart, and we’re both put to the test, will love or loyalty prevail?. (Amazon Blurb)
It’s not quite the mafia genre, not quite the MC genre or even the dark genre, it simply felt like a mixture of all three with an added touch of the unexpected. A contract killer available for hire who doesn’t think twice about his contract, just as long as the money is in his account before the due date, and a woman who has the ability to see the good in people, even when they believe they have the darkest of souls. Novels of these kinds have always fascinated me, there is always something happening – action, suspense and a romance you’d expect with twists you wouldn’t have seen coming. I wish I would have had the opportunity to read the other 4 novels of the series since I’m convinced the reading pleasure would have been greatly improved, or at the very least, I would have had a chance to meet many of the characters and create a sort of bond with them. That being said, I still enjoyed the novel and the way Max Henry weaves a story is quite entertaining and captivating – I’d recommend it, but to fully enjoy the experience from beginning to end, I would urge readers to read the entire series.

Bronx is called in to help alleviate the Fallen Saints biggest threat. He now has to go undercover and get up and close with skinheads, addiction and a certain brown head beauty. Just when he thought that fitting in would be hard, Bronx soon discovers that a certain white powder (that the skins provide) can make all his troubles go away. But when his eyes land on a certain girl, everything soon changes. He doesn't care if she is the girlfriend to one of the skins but all he knows is that he will have her. But at what cost? Will he tell her his secret and blow his cover? Or will he get close and try to save her and himself?
Ryan doesn't want to date a skinhead, but with no family and nowhere else to go she doesn't have much choice. She doesn't love Gunther but knowing that his friend may hold the answers to her many questions, Ryan is on a mission. However when her eyes connect with a certain stranger at a party, her whole outlook changes. Can she leave everything behind for this man? How will she ever get the answers to her questions that have plagued her nightmares for years?
Both Ryan and Bronx go through shell and back to make it out of their horrible circumstances. Each character molded nicely with each other and their back and forth banter was the best. Bronx's attitude is total Alpha and with the mentality of not giving up on what he wants, Ryan was toast. But on another note, we are able to see what Bronx really wants out of life....Someone to come home to. From reading the other stories we as readers may not have picked up on this but I am glad Max gave the Butcher Bad-boy a big heart. Ryan on one hand might come across as a weak character but after learning her predicament and how she is totally stuck in skinhead he'll, one can start to see her in a new light. Throughout the story, Ryan soon starts to gain the backbone we as readers want her to have and by the end of the story she comes out victorious.
Again let me state that I am totally sad that this was the last Butcher Boy story but was totally glad to see a note at the end saying that the author will continue on with some of the supporting characters in her new series. All I can say is "I NEED TO READ ABOUT SAWYER". Hahaha Also please if you are going to read this book, read the 4 previous ones first. It could be read as a stand alone but one will get the full picture if the other books are read.
