I really didn't think anything for me could top the first in this series "Innocent Eyes" but "Devious Eyes" actually went above and beyond: words fail me this was in a nutshell: totally epic and I devoured every decadent morsel reading this in practically one sitting which in my opinion is always the sign of some superior fiction.
"Devious Eyes" is the second collaboration in the Cane series written by the talented duo of Hart and De Lune and once again they have smashed it: totally hitting the ball right outside the park.
My expectations obliterated in one fell swoop: I am suitably impressed here folks.
So back with the Canes and this time we get to experience Nates story in all its unapologetic glory as he finds and traverses the battleground of his love life after taking an unexpected sabbatical to his own island paradise.
So after some brotherly inter-fighting sends Nates running for the hills he unexpectedly finds himself falling for Jewel thief Gabby who herself is in hiding after a deal back home goes south.
Both determined to indulge in just a holiday fling it isn't very surprising when our lover's emotions start to make an appearance.
But with such an ocean of lies to overcome this was most certainly not going to be easy sailing and when the crap hits the fan lets just say this pairs lives are more closely connected than even they could have imagined.
The romance itself here seemed to have a much more romantic flavour than its predecessor with Nate much more willing to open himself up to his lighter side almost accessible to the concept of a much deeper connection than his brother ever was.
That's not to say Nate doesn't act like a complete tool he is a Cane after all and the apple doesn't really fall far from the tree but compared to his brother he was practically a breath of fresh air.
And Gabby herself is such a resilient girl: because of her beginnings and family she has had to adapt like a chameleon and as a consequence has forged her own path in life separate to that of her brother.
These two individuals: both used to standing in the shadow of there sibling are more than a match for each other: complementing and reflecting each other strengths and weaknesses.
So you cant have shades of light without its counter opposite and the dark here when it comes is pitch: there are deep triggers here that don't make for easy reading.
But it's only with these portrayals of depravity that we eventually get to witness and realise the true depth of Gabby's inner reserves: she really does manage to come into her own with this stark portrait and her ability to overcome the brutal situation she had endured so bravely.
We also get to catch up with Quinn and Emily (more Quinn) which was certainly an added bonus and Quinn was in usual good form here it seems only Em gets to experience this tossers sweeter side.
He frankly behaves like a bit of an ass here: reverting to type.
Also if you want my take on things you would be better off reading these in order to get the most out of things here.
So that's about it: I have no issue whatsoever recommending "Devious Eyes" to you it was a fantastic experience that gets a massive thumbs up from moi.

Another amazing read from this fantastic, talented writing duo! I wasn’t sure they could top Innocent Eyes, I mean come on Quinn was just amazing to read about and Nate I’ll be honest I wasn’t so sure about. I was worried I would get that raw, dark, grittiness that I got from Quinn’s story but I was so, so wrong! Whilst he isn’t as ‘dark’ as Quinn he does have a different but equally as appealing quality about him that makes you think there is so much more to him than you originally thought. I’m going to go even as far as to say that Nate may have just pushed Quinn off the top spot in the Cane Brothers competition! He was kind, caring, and level headed but he had that fierce protectiveness that clearly runs in the Cane family. With every great male main character there has to be an equally as good female, Quinn had Emily; Nate has Gabby and what a female lead she was! She was strong in her own right, she had her own secrets, she had her own family issues to deal with but when she and Nate were together they just lit the story on fire! I loved every second of their story, from their very first meeting until the end of the story I was captivated by the two of them.
Alongside the amazing characters we have the beautiful setting that some of the story takes place in, the authors really brought this story to life with their beautiful descriptions of Bora Bora, and I almost felt like I was right there relaxing with these characters!
The differing writing styles that these two authors have really do complement each other well, so much so that unless you have read their separate work it’s hard to tell who has written which chapter.
Oh and there’s book 3 to look forward too! Bring it on!!! #CaneBrothersForever
Nate and Gabby are really a match made in heaven, although, they don't know it. Both think their world is just too dark and dangerous to involve the other. No matter how hard they try to keep their real world a secret from the other and keep their relationship in the “Holiday Fling” zone, true feelings cannot be denied. The thoroughly enjoyed the initial setting of Bora Bora which allowed our couple to connect and brought steam to the pages as well as beautiful images to my mind while the couple enjoy each other’s company intimately in paradise.
But dark romance lovers, don’t fear. Charlotte and Rachel serve up a hefty dose of darkness and suspense as the story unfolds. They even bring in some mystery to have us exercising our minds and leave us craving book number 3.
In true Hart De Lune fashion, they have not forgotten to add in some very tantalizing sexual escapades that are sure to leave you fanning and swooning. Everything about Devious Eyes is absolutely captivating and addictive. I totally recommend this read to all the dark romance lovers.

Nate Cane, financial brain behind the outfit, younger brother and second in command to the all powerful, dominant, slightly crazy Quinn...who'd have thought his story could be so alluring?!
I was really excited for this second book by Charlotte E Hart and Rachel De Lune. Innocent Eyes swept me away and left me wanting so much more from the Cane brothers. I can definitely say that i was not disappointed.
Once again, this duo have used their individual writing styles to take the reader on an emotional ride. There are high points, containing the fast paced, angry, dark writing styles of Hart which are quickly followed by the softer, more steady and romantic style of De Lune. But having said that, this time around there is also a noticeable shift in styles, they have most obviously learnt a think or two from each other over the course of their partnership.
The pair have successfully portrayed the pace of the characters lives within their words. The dangerous world of the Cane's feel angry, angsty and rampant while the island Bora Bora is relaxed, easy going and fun.
This story has got a brilliant flow to it, the ups and downs, the heartache, heartbreak and lighthearted moments come at you in swarms.
It starts with a bang but most certainly does not end in a whimper.
These two authors are pulling all the stops with this series and book 3 is going to be one hell of a belter!
Nothing was as it seemed. Grabriella was perfect. A real independent and strong woman. She makes herself scarce and vanishes off to an island haven. There she meets Nathan Cane. Younger brother of Quinn. Accountant for the family.
But both of them have secrets and when they start to catch up and put danger in their paths, you can bet things are going to get very hot. Very fast!
And all will learn the value of "family"...
It may have triggers for some people and maybe a bit dark for some, but for me it was perfect!
And very well written
