Title: The Devil's Eyes
Series: The Devil's Eyes, #1
Author: Jennifer Loren
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

Nicholas Jayzon has broken through the destitute chains of his past by stealing, swindling and charming his way to owning his city. In the city where most everyone owes him a favor, Nick's power is growing. The police can't touch him and his enemies are becoming powerless to take him down. He is intelligent, cunning and above all ... alluring. No woman can resist him. But, one woman is determined to get him, and her reasons are personal. Kayla Donovan has spent years preparing for the time she faces him again and plans on denying Nick as much of her as she can. She knows him; she knows what gets his attention and what he can't resist. Kayla is the only one that can possibly look into his devilish eyes and not be besieged by them or controlled by a single whisper of his desire. If she is able to manage her fears, then there is no reason for her not to succeed, and if she can't ... well, she has nothing to lose. She has no one left to care about her or to miss her if she fails in her mission. She has no one, not since her beloved sister fell for him, became controlled by him, and eventually died for him. Driven by hate, Kayla is determined to find a way into Nick's favor, find a way to make him trust her so she can find the heart of the devil and tear it apart before he captures hers. The Devil's Eyes is a Dark, Intense, Romance novel. Not your typical story of two perfect people coming together after overcoming a life challenge. No, Nick and Kayla are two imperfect people, trying to overcome the brutal realities of their worlds and finding life as criminals comes naturally to them both.

So this book starts out with Kayla going on a very dangerous mission to get revenge for her sister committing suicide. But it seems all of her plans don't go so well when she finally reunites with Nick. Things start to heat up for both of them, and Kayla soon learns things aren't always as they seemed to be. 
I loved Kayla throughout this whole book, she has strength, courage, and heart. She is an awesome character who wasn't afraid to put her life on the line for the people she loved, and she also wasn't afraid to get her hands "dirty" either to defend those people as well. 
This book is not your typical romance, it is intense, and very dark. It also has a lot of twists, I could never predict what would happen next because it would always surprise me. 
The side characters are also very strong. You get to see different relationships forming on the side too, along with the main story line. 
There is a lot of funny times too. I thought Kayla was hilarious, lots of the things she said had me in stitches throughout the book. The book was also not very fast paced, but it wasn't so slow that I got bored with it. There was always something exciting happening to look forward to. I very much recommend this book, and I can not wait to read the next one.
