Synopsis (Goodreads):
Eric Pate is used to making his own rules—as the director of the PARA Unit, he is the boss. Everyone rushes to obey his commands, and no one knows his secrets. No one ever gets too close to him. But then he meets her.

Ella Lancaster is tired of being a prisoner. She escaped one hell just to find herself in another, but Eric doesn’t consider her containment with his agents as punishment. He actually thinks it is a form of protection. But Eric is so very wrong. Ella doesn’t need protecting, not for anyone or anything.

But when the PARA Unit comes under attack, Ella and Eric both find themselves battling a supernatural beast that they never expected. Forced to join forces, to make a deal, Ella and Eric are soon fighting side-by-side, and their attraction for each other can’t be contained or controlled. Hot. Wild. Consuming. Ella’s deal with her devil is soon taking over her life.

And as Eric falls deeper and deeper under the mysterious Ella’s spell, his legendary control begins to crack. The beast that he has kept chained so carefully inside rises to the surface. Unfortunately, when the devil loses his control…there is real hell to pay.
Thoughts on Deal with the Devil: Okay. I didn't know what to expect with Eric's story. I mean, the guy's been kind of a jerk in the other books. Or, well, maybe jerk is the wrong word. He's driven and he does what needs to be done without regards to how it affects others and I wasn't sure I really liked him.

Buuuuut he also had a softer side. He did feel remorse over what he did to his sister and he was loyal to her. But he was still kind of a jerk.

So, you know, having Ella crash into his orbit and crack his careful mask was interesting. I have to admit, he stayed true to character when he allowed her to jump to a conclusion about him and he didn't correct her misconception. That jerk.

But then he got all tangled up over her pain and...the guy is complicated, okay? Complicated. And I liked him a whole lot more once he admitted his feelings and his secrets came out.

Meanwhile, Ella had her own issues. Several of them,in fact. Eric was only one roadblock she had to navigate.

Dark, dangerous, and not always nice, I liked these paranormals. I'm sad to see them go.
