Everything is fun and games until someone gets hurt, and what Jameson Kane did to Tatum O'Shea goes so far beyond hurt, he is well into the realm of unforgivable. Tate says she wants him gone for good, and he quickly learns that the old saying, “you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone”, is most definitely true.
But Jameson has never been very good at following instructions, and when Satan decides to seek redemption, he'll go to great lengths to get it. He proposes one last game – one to end them all, if she agrees to play. He is very confident that he can win, but Tate warns him that it's not possible; she will not lose again. Little does she know, Jameson is prepared to do whatever it takes. Prepared to lay the entire world at her feet. Prepared to bear his soul.
What he didn't count on, though, was handing the damn thing over.
Now Jameson can only pray that his evil ways haven't rubbed off on Tate too much. Sometimes, it's very difficult to tell who the Devil really is …
WARNING: contains a semi-reformed devil, a woman scorned, and more Sanders than anyone has a right to witness. Also graphic sexual situations and strong language.
Jameson took it to another level due to jealousy and hurt Tatum more than he could have ever imagined. Tatum wants nothing more to do with him but he is more determined than ever to right his wrong.
Tatum has turned into a different person. She has always been forward and outspoken. She never cared what anyone thought. As much as she doesn't want to admit it she misses Jameson more than ever. Tatum knows that to give in to her desire to have him it could also destroy her. Jameson realized his grave mistake immediatly and vowed to make it up to Tatum in any way possible. He found out quickly that Tatum was not going to let go and forgive any time soon. Sanders is Jamesons personal assistant and he loves Tatum dearly.
Sanders has survived his own abusive past and doesn't allow people to get close to him very easily. Tatum means almost as much to him as Jameson does and he wants both of them to be happy. Sanders knows that for them to be happy they have to trust each other. Jameson asks for Sanders help in getting Tatum back. Jameson comes up with a plan and Sanders reluctantly agrees to help.
Tatum guards her heart as much as she can but it soon becomes clear that she can't resist his pull on her. When they do eventually come together again their sex is just as wild as it was before and now Tatum worries that she can't walk away. Jamesons ex fiance stalks him and Tatum has a few confrontations with her. This only brings out more of Tatums insecurities. The question in this story is..can Jameson learn to love and will Tatum learn to trust him enough to let him love her?? I am so hooked on Jameson and Tatums story.
I love both of these characters and their strong personalities. Sanders plays a big part in this book too and you are sure to fall a little bit in love with him. There is so much emotion in this story and I can feel it as I read. You feel angry and sad and then theres parts that make you laugh. This book sucks you in and you can't stop reading until the very end. Of course there is a small cliffhanger at the end of this book but that doesn't matter because it just means that we will get more of Jameson and Tatum. I absolutely can not wait!!
Seven years later, life is going pretty good for Tate, when she runs into Jameson again. This time, she thinks she's ready for him. She doesn't have a naive bone left in her body, and she can't even remember what shy feels like. Jameson has evolved into Satan – sharp teeth, sharper claws, and a tongue that can cut her in half. It all sounds like fun to a girl like Tate, and she is ready to play, determined to prove that she isn't the same girl he conquered once before. A series of games start, each one more devious than the last.
But the devil likes to play dirty, and she learns that playing for souls is playing for keeps. The lines between games and reality, heaven and hell, get blurry. Can she beat Jameson at his own game before someone gets hurt? Or will he leave her soulless, making him the winner, once and for all?
WARNING: contains a wannabe B-rate porn star, an impersonal personal assistant, and the F-word, A LOT. Also graphic sexual situations and sadomasochistic themes
Jameson is smart, sexy, unbelievably dominating, rude and sexy. He also happens to be Tatum's sisters boyfriend.
Jameson does what he wants, when he wants and one night he decides he wants Tatum. She gives in very easily and sleeps with him.
7years later Tatum is a very different person. She's feisty, fun, confident, carefree, mouthy, does what she wants always, sleeps around and uses men.....until she bumps in to Jameson again.
The story was very intense and very violent in quite a few places. I 100% love this book from start to finish, and I think Stylo was very clever to of written a book that upped the Alpha males dominance, but I did get very uncomfortable in quite afew scenes. Jameson took things to far on a lot of occasions. Reading about Tatum being strangled continuously really effected me. He was so horrible to her pretty much through out the book verbally and physically. A lot of the time I felt like I was reading a women's abuse story that she's escaped from, not a romance book. I have read many dark reads (this isn't a dark read) that have never made me uncomfortable. I can't make my mind up if I think Stylo's a pure genius for writing the book how she did, or slightly mad in a good way. I think this book needs to come with a warning though as I think a lot people are going to be torn between loving it or hating it.
I couldn't work out why Stylo had titled her book "Degradation" ? The title wouldn't draw me in, but then I googled the meaning and found that it meant "the process of degrading or being degraded" once I read this I saw how perfectly the title fitted to the story..
Putting aside the abuse I loved everything else about the book. The story flowed so well. And it kept me hooked right from the start to the end.
The sex scenes were very original because they are boarding on abuse most of the time.
I couldn't believe when the book reached the end and I found out it had ended on a HUGH cliffhanger. The good news is there is a release date for book 2 already and I can't wait to read it to find out more and to see if Jameson will ever change.
Over all I give this book 4.5 stars. I can push the abuse scenes out my mind and enjoy Stylos writing for what it is. A amazingly original story.
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

After suffering a tragic accident as a child, Maggie Wilson has tried her whole life to regain the happiness she lost. She has been in survival mode ever since, dealing with a mentally unstable parent, having no one to turn to for help. Her desire to escape to a better future fuels her motivation and keeps her focused on what really matters, breaking free of the hell she lives in.
Things at home are complicated and it’s easier to push people away than allow them to get too close. She doesn’t let anyone into her life except her best friend Amanda. Maggie has perfected keeping secrets, maintaining her GPA and staying out of relationships. All her energy is put into her school work so that when she graduates she can leave for college and forget her past.
All of that changes when she meets Vincent Moreno. His reputation precedes him but she quickly discovers there is so much more to him than what you see on the surface. He manages to wiggle his way into her life despite her efforts to keep him at a distance. As Maggie starts to open up she realizes how much she needs someone like Vince in her life. They form a connection like no other and it has her reconsidering everything.

Vol 2 ended in a massive cliffhanger, with both
Scarlett and Ryder taking massive steps to keep Scarkett ex out of there's lives for good.
Neither know what the others doing or planing to do to and it's all lies between them.
Missy writes incredible stories and I knew immediately just from the title that thus story was going to be outstanding. It really was like a tennis match in some many ways....back and forth.....back and forth!!!! I wasn't disappointed in any of the 3 books. Book 1 blew me away, but unfortunately book 2 and 3 didn't live up to the 5 star standard (just) in my eyes. The reason for that is in book one you had a whole short story to get to know the characters and connect with them, in book 2 and 3 the connection faded abit because of all the back and forth and lies. The huge twists bring it back up to a 4.5 though and Missy has wrote another great book. There's no books of hers ive ever disliked. There always wrote brilliantly and she has a brilliant talent to tell stories. Looking forward to whatever book missy writes next.
I will miss Ryder!
