Deal With the Devil, which tells the story of Jericho Forge and India Baptiste is the latest offering from Meghan March. It is the first book in the Forge Trilogy and for those who fear the dreaded cliff-hanger you may want to wait until all the books are released, but for readers who have no qualms about it, this book is not to be missed. 

The story begins with Jericho showing up for a high stakes poker game he was not invited to. Here he comes face to face with India.
This game is important to her, so Jericho’s appearance was a major cinch in her plans, but then he might just be the one person who can assist her.

Jericho is like no other man she has encountered. She knew from the moment she laid eyes on him this would be nothing like her usual poker game. Both are determined to win, bit there can be only one winner. Who will it be?

Jericho is ruthless and unapologetic. He doesn’t give a damn as to what anyone thinks of him. If he wants something he will do his damnedest to get it and woe be on to the man or woman who tries to get in his way. Vengeance drives his actions, which makes him a deadly foe, but with India he never knew what hit him. She is like no other woman he has encountered. She challenges him and elicits feelings he never thought possible.

India is no walkover. I enjoyed getting to know her. Resilient, smart, feisty, confident, proud, bold, impulsive and beautiful describes her perfectly. Her life growing up made her the person she is today, but now she is caught between a rock and a hard place. She has no choice but to trust the one man who has the power to turn her world upside down.

The intense chemistry between Jericho and India had the power to make my phone overheat. Yes the attraction between sizzled to the point of melting. It was fun watching them fight these intense feelings. When they finally gave into their feelings it was explosive.

Hooked from the first page. I had a hard time putting this book down. The drama, suspense, mystery, humor, chemistry and banter had me turning the pages. I needed to know how the story would unfold.

The end left me in a state of anticipation. Now i am on pins and needles waiting for the release of the second book Luck of the Devil. 

If you love your heroes strong and protective and your heroines bold and sassy then you will love Jericho and India. Highly recommended.
From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes the story of the ruthless, calculating billionaire Jericho Forge.

India Baptiste, his latest prey, is now caught in the high stakes game that has become her life since colliding with Forge, and she’ll need the luck of the devil to survive.

India Forge’s life is now part of Jericho Forge’s calculated game.

“You can put that man in a suit, but he’ll never be tame.”
One look at Jericho Forge and I knew the rumors were true. He was a predator, and he had set his sights on me.

I knew better than to bet more than I could afford to lose that night. I knew better than to bet myself. But desperation leads to bad decisions, and I thought there was no way I could lose.

I was wrong.
Now I have no choice but to make a deal with the devil.

Deal with the Devil is the first book of the Forge Trilogy, which will continue in Luck of the Devil and conclude in Heart of the Devil.

    It sounds like my kind of read but I’ll have to wait cause no thanks on cliffhangers. Thanks Nadene

  2. This sounds really good and I have enjoyed everything from this author that I have had a chance to read. I will probably want to wait until the series is complete to start reading. I am glad you enjoyed it, Nadene!

  3. Neat how the setting of a high stakes poker game is at the center of their sizzling attraction. Good to know about the cliffhanger. I’m one of those who will have to wait. LOL
