Review: Devil’s Pawn by Elizabeth Finn

Title: The Devil’s Pawn

By: Elizabeth Finn

My Copy: Ebook from Author

BookWhisperer Rating:

four books

A common enemy. A secret untold. One dark and handsome man determined to despise. One inexperienced, innocent, shy woman swept into a life she cannot control. Both pawns in a torturous game that will bind them together or tear them apart . . . forever.

When Ashton is left orphaned after her parents are murdered, her life becomes a hell she could never have imagined. Left to fend for herself, and responsible for a debt she doesn’t owe, she is swept into a life as a gentleman’s escort at a private men’s gaming hall. Her new manager makes it abundantly clear he doesn’t appreciate her inexperience, innocence, and shyness. On the contrary, he despises everything about her.

Derek can be “difficult,” she’s been told. And however dark and handsome he may be, he terrifies her in a way that chills her to the bone, but leaves her begging to understand him. As they are pulled along together, more secrets and threats than either one could ever conceive are revealed, and a common enemy emerges. This enemy will stop at nothing to bring Derek to his knees while using Ashton as the greatest pawn in his torturous game.

Will Derek be able to let down his shield of cold, harsh emotion before it’s too late? Will he be able to sacrifice himself to save Ashton, or will they both be destroyed by the secrets of their pasts?

our thoughts finl

Everything that you read about this book being dark, gritty, and harsh is completely true.  It is not like Finn’s other books, it is a whole new world.

Finn presents us with this intense love/hate relationship between Ashton and Derek.  He hates everything about her and because he shows his hatred to her, with no filter, she hates him right back with the same intensity.  I wanted nothing more than to punch Derek for being such a jerk face in the beginning.  He is one of those characters that you hate, I mean HATE.

Finn wrote Ashton’s character to where I felt everything she felt.  I was terrified in the beginning when she was first meeting Derek.  What transpired in that room made me absolutely nervous for her well being and I was sick about what was happening but I still needed to continue to read for that small hope of light that might come later on down the road (side note: that light is far, far away.)  The book starts with Ashton in a room with multiple men and they ask her to strip so that they can judge her appearance to see if she is ‘whore-worthy’.  The things they say about her, the things they do to her, makes you feel disgusted but you find that she has to do this, so she must.  What happens after this is just a cluster of craziness!  You must read it! 

I am just going to say that this book is dark but there is love in it; don’t let the darkness deter you from trying.

Oh and Elizabeth Finn, if you are reading this, please write another book…super fast!
