#WOTR24 – #NewRelease #Review – A Bargain With The Shadow Prince – By: Genevieve Jack

It takes a monster to stop a monster.

Light the candle.
Stand naked before the symbol.
Offer your blood.

The advocate will come.

I left my abusive crime boss husband expecting to start over from nothing. After all, the prenup I signed when I married him is ironclad. But when Tony uses a loophole in the law to go after my ancestral family home—the one I’m currently living in and my grandmother is dying in—I’m desperate to stop him.

My witch best friend Maeve offers a solution. She lends me a family spell to call a supernatural advocate to deal with Tony. After all, it takes a monster to stop a monster.

But when I follow her instructions, I’m not expecting the darkly handsome Damien to form from the shadows, or to learn that he’s been a prisoner of Maeve’s family for centuries. From the moment he accepts my bargain and drinks my blood, he awakens a passion in me, one charged with latent magic. Magic formidable enough to restore my true self. Magic that holds the promise of Damien’s freedom.


Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

This is the first book I have read of Genevieve Jack.  I was not disappointed and I’m so ready for the next book.  This is a cliffhanger and I believe is book one of four.  This book takes us on a wild ride.

Eloise soon to be ex-husband, Tony, is making it so she has nothing.  He is even trying to take her family home from her.  Her best friend and Attorney, Maeve, has another way for Eloise to keep her family home.  Maeve gives her a family candle where Eloise summons a shade, Damien, to make a bargain to help her. Eloise has no idea what she was getting herself into.  Damien was sexy and there was something about him that caught Eloise’s attention (and mine to be honest). There was so much chemistry between these two it had my heart racing.

Damien is a shade and has been tied to Maeve’s family for centuries by the candle. Anytime he is summoned he has to come and has to do Maeve’s family biding.  When Maeve lends the candle to her BFF Eloise to help he. Eloise summons Damien to make a deal and allows him to drink her blood.

I love Eloise she seems like a weak female but she really surprises me throughout the book.  She makes a deal with Damien but then realizes what he is going to do and has a change of heart.  Eloise just cannot live with herself if Tony dies because of her choices.  So now Damien and Eloise make a new deal.

I fell hard for Damien even though we are told he is a monster there is more to him than what Maeve and her family has seen.  He has such a big heart and you see it when he is with Eloise.  You can tell the frustration he has with her but he always treats her like a princess. Now that Eloise is away from Tony her personality starts to show though. I enjoyed seeing Eloise open up and become the woman she was always meant to be. Eloise falls for Damien no matter how many warnings Maeve gives her. She is not afraid of Damien and knows there is more to him than the monster she is told he is.

I enjoyed learning of Damiens world and seeing the love between Eloise and Damien evolve.  There are so many twists and turns in this book it kept me flipping those pages.  Like I said before I am so ready for book two, I need more of Eloise and Damien.  I cannot wait to see where the next book will take us. I want to learn more about Damien and Eloise future and their families past.
