Review| Devil Side – Lacey Dailey

I’m a big fan of romances and if you add a roadtrip with a musician, I have to say you’ll have me very curious. Lacey Dailey wrote Devil Side and published it last year. She decided to give it a makeover and add some changes. Yesterday was the re-release and I had the opportunity to read it!

A big thanks to the author for providing me with an ARC to read and review.

Review| Devil Side – Lacey Dailey


Unable to continue living on the path her father created for her, Gigi Moretti does something she’s never done before.
She takes a risk.
When musician Maxwell Mitchell waltzes into an old diner in the early morning up to his elbows in secrets, he offers Gigi the perfect escape from the future she’s never wanted.
It takes an over the top demand from her father and a shocking revelation from her fake fiancé to get her to pack her bags and ride shotgun on Max’s spontaneous tour across the country.
With each mile they drive, Max and Gigi grow closer. Over shared hotel rooms and cheesy snacks, feelings erupt and change the status of their relationship. The deeper they fall, the closer Gigi gets to the truth…
To Max’s devil side…
The question is: why is Max hiding him from her?

Review

“I want the peace that comes each morning when you open your eyes to a day that hasn’t already been mapped out for you. I want to find something that makes my eyes melt when I speak about it.”

Devil Side is the fourth book in the Extraordinary series, but can be read as a standalone! Our main characters Max and Gia don’t really know each other that well, but they’re about to go on a road trip together that will definitely change both of their lives.

I was sucked into this story from the start. Lacey Dailey has a way with words that just won’t let you go. I really felt for both Max and Gia and really wanted them to have their happily ever after. The dul POV really helped me enter this world easier. The mention of their best friends definitely made me curious about the previous book and I know I’ll be checking them out.

“I want to know what it looks like – her smile when she find true happiness. I want to know what it sounds like – her laugh when there’s nobody trying to mute it. I want to see her free of her chains, not unlike the way my moms freed me from mine.”

Gia has had a very protected life and her father basically controls what she does. He’s even decided the career path she’ll take. After graduating (a year early at that), Gia is a bit lost. She can’t imagine living the rest of her life as she is now. After one last thing that goes too far, Gia decides to change her life and go on a roadtrip. I really liked Gia. Even though her life was the way it was, she didn’t just sit their and complain. I loved seeing her get stronger as she spent more and more time with Max. Gia took control of her life and I think it’s amazing!

Max was definitely an interesting one. From what we know, he hasn’t had an easy life. He doesn’t “spill his beans” easily as Gia would say. Music is his life and he loves people giving meaning to his words. He has a lot going on and knows he’ll never be in a relationship. That’s just not for Max. My heart really broke for Max and I can’t say too much, because I really think you need to read his story to find out more about his devil side. He was definitely everything I would’ve asked for in this story, including his devil side. I loved seeing him open himself up more and taking a chance on love and himself.

“We know you’re capable of surviving, Max. But just surviving is a whole lot different than actually living.”

On top of the amazing characters, it was nice to see that their relationship took time. They didn’t jump into anything after knowing each other for a couple of days. Gia and Max were best friends and that showed in everything. My favorite being the onesies for Gia and Max day. I think they needed each other more than they both expected and really brought out the best in the other. They brought a smile to my face.

I also really loved the side characters in this story. They really made this book and if I’m honest, I would love to see Renzo get a story. Devil Side will definitely be a story I won’t forget!

 

I’m so happy that I decided to read Devil Side. These characters and their story is so heartbreaking, but it’s great to see them get a chance at love! What is your favorite book that has a road trip? I definitely need to read more of them!
