Publisher's Summary

WINTER  

Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could've done. It didn't matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I'd have time to disappear before he got out or he'd cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was. But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he's anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan. And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn't expect this. He doesn't want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.  

DAMON  

First thing's first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.  

Step two.... Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor. But that's not what's coming. No, it's time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It's time I showed them all - my family, her family, my friends - that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.

Damon! ❤️

This is book 3 of the devils night series featuring the 4 horsemen. This was Damon’s book and what a story this was! I hated Damon but really fell in love with him in this book! Damon and winter are magic together. The book reveals a lot of family secrets. It switches from past to present a lot which I usually don’t like but it didn’t bother me too much with this book. The story also leaves you with more questions too. Like how is the divorce going to go? Will they get married? How is winters sister going to react to all of this? Will Damon eventually have a relationship with his mom? What’s Banks going to do with the inheritance? Will Rika still run for office? So many questions! I hope book 4, Wills book will answer everything and also finally see Michael and Rikas wedding. As always another winner of a series so far with this one as the Fall Away series is still one of my favorites. Great narration too especially jumping between young and older character voices. So nice to see the horsemen and now horsewomen coming back together again! PS it would also be nice for Alex to get a nice HEA too... just sayin.

I hated Damon for the first 2 books

This series is a dark romance and completely different from what I’m used to but I’m glad I read this series. There is a lot of trigger warnings but I really enjoyed the first three books so far. I’m glad we get to see Damon’s side of the story & hear his thoughts about past events. It makes me actually like him. I do recommend listening to kill switch. You get to see Damon have his guard down and actually be vulnerable .

1st DNF in a long time.

this book was recommended by a book group I'm in, I had very high hopes for it, but I could not get Chapter 3!! It was so slow and bounced around in the timeliness, I could not figure out what was past or present. Although Jeremy York narrated pretty decent (he is why they got 2 stars), the FMC Tatiana Sokolov was terrible. She did not fit this FMC and her voice itself was the most irritating I've listened to. Save your credit, there are better ones to use it on.

Penelope Douglas, you've done it again

Honestly, I'm not sure if I loved this or Corrupt more. Overall, these people all need therapy and so do I. Maybe I'm getting desensitized but I think this one was less violent than Corrupt, which might have factored into it. Damon's backstory & his love for Winter/how everything went down was very heart-wrenching and Ms. Penelope gave him a really beautiful character arc. As usual, killer music taste. Definitely check trigger warnings for this, this series is NOT for everyone. Still not the largest fan of the narrators, but they're growing on me slowly if I listen to the book at 1.4x speed.

Dreadfully boring

Everyone boasts on booktok at how awesome this series. It’s awful. This was book 3 in the series and by far the worst. No connection with the characters. This book could have been written in half the words.

If you can get through Corrupt... you'll love Hideaway and fall deeper in love with Kill Switch!! Everything just makes sense!

Loved it!

Great story as this continues with Damon and Winters story. the author once again ups the stakes and takes us on an even darker ride than the previous two. We get to hear the full horrors of Damon's earlier life and my opinion of the character went from pure hatred following his actions in the previous two books to actual liking him by the end. I feel he redeemed himself although not sure if I still completely trust him.

Narrative was one again flawless as this pair take on the evilest character in this series doing him justice whilst showing Winter to be the feisty determined woman she becomes despite being blind. A great audio!

⭐️ [5/5 Stars] ⭐️

Imagine me not crying for six hours straight while I read this. Ugh. My eyeballs. They HURT.

I didn’t care much about this series, to be honest. Through the first and second book I was always more invested in Damon and Will and I know everyone said that this one is the best in the series, and I wanted to only read this one but I felt like I needed to read the first two to have a proper understanding, and I’m really glad I did. While they weren’t my favourite and I don’t care much for the world, I don’t think I would have loved this one as much if I didn’t have all that history from the other two.

This was emotionally draining and hard to read. It was exhausting to read because it broke my damn heart. Damon has issues, he’s always been fucked up and while his history isn’t an excuse for his behaviour, it’s a reason, and it’s a damn sad one. I just want to hug him. Even in the first book, I knew something was seriously wrong. In this one the entire time I just cried for him and I wanted to HUG him. He deserves so much love. Yeah, he’s done some fucked up shit, but I don’t care. His character development over the three novels has been incredible and the same goes for all of the characters, actually. Rika is such a bad bitch now.

So far, I haven’t been a fan of any of the heroines in this series. I mean they’re okay and there’s nothing wrong with them but sometimes they’re just dumb. I liked Winter to an extent. Her reasons for hating Damon were a bit wishy washy, I don’t understand why it took so long for her to remember exactly what happened in the treehouse. I liked that she made Damon soft and I love how her loved her. Honestly, I just wanted him to be happy. Sigh. I’m just so soft for him.

I still feel like there’s a lot about Damon and Will that I don’t know, which is why I’m desperate to read the next book when it comes out. This review is all over the place sorry LMAO, I don’t even know why I’m giving it five stars I just know I liked it, I liked the stolen moments between Damon and Winter, I like how he let his guard down. I loved the way these characters have been developed and written. Penelope Douglas is such a bad bitch. Plus, there was another threesome scene and while nothing will ever top the one between Kai Michael and Rika, this one was just as drool worthy. Yes pleassseeee.

omgggggg this book was painful

This girl was sooooooo foolish , this guy scares you and controls you from high school and you fall for him. Damian was the worst character in her books. I am shocked she did not tell her parents about all his antics and made more excuses for his actions. marries her sister but has relations with her crazy. None of what he did was normal he should be in jail.

Amazing!

I actually didn’t want to hear this book after the first two because I really just didn’t like Daman. So I put it off for a few weeks before relenting and holy cow! This book was seriously amazing. I loved the other two books, but this one is by far the best.

Devils Knight

Never thought I would like Damien, really, I just never thought I’d feel empathy for him as he really wasn’t a very nice person.
But as usual Pen Douglas weaves her magic and you feel so many different things for these characters, and by the end not only did I have empathy for Damien but I was cheering him on.
Looking forward to the second part that will follow, I have no doubt it will be brilliant.
As for the narrators, it’s been the same two throughout who in general I really enjoy. At times I think they sound a little to old for the characters they are bringing to life, but once you get wrapped up in listening that goes on the back burner.
