Jess's Review ~ The Rise of Saint by Bella J.

The Rise of Saint My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I was not expecting that at all!

Full disclosure I had no idea that this was a book one and as I am plowing through the pages I keep thinking there is no way this can come to end with the number of pages I have left. And then things get more complicated and twisted and I know for sure that this will leave me hanging, and it does and I was mad but now I'm over it and I would just like more, please.

This is my first read from this author and she did not disappoint. While I enjoy a full range of books, my favorite are those that are dark and devious but I have only a small handful of authors that do it for me. Bella did it for me. Mila is an orphan who has had to fight her whole life. She has been bounced around, doesn't have many friends and has thickened that outer skin. When she runs an errand with her friend she has no idea what kind of life she is about to discover.

Saint, is the devil dressed in nice clothing. He is cold and calculated. He has a plan and will stop at nothing to complete it. He has a couple of moments where he is almost a human but for the most part, he is a demon and I couldn't get enough. He is also secretive and unfeeling which is where his business relationship with Mila adds a complication for him. Mila is just trying to be strong, just trying to understand but when she is dealing with a brick wall and her trust is already on a tightrope what else is she supposed to do?

This was interesting, while this is a story that has somewhat been done before, there was this uniqueness to it and the twists are fresh and unexpected. There is still a lot of details to flesh out and I cannot wait to get the rest of this story.
