New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the story of ruthless, calculating billionaire Jericho Forge in Luck of the Devil.
My poker face has always been one of my greatest assets, along with my grit and determination. I was beholden to no one. Asked permission for nothing.
Then Jericho Forge took my life by storm.
I traded my freedom for something infinitely more precious, but I didn’t realize he was holding an unbeatable hand.
Now, all I have to do is survive the high-stakes game that is my life—with my heart intact.
But not falling in love with Forge? That will take the luck of the devil.
Luck of the Devil is the second book of the Forge Trilogy, and should be read following Deal with the Devil. The Forge Trilogy concludes in Heart of the Devil.
After reading Luck of the Devil, I can wholeheartedly say that I am just as ‘dick-struck’ by Jericho Forge as India is, but my obsession with Jericho has more to do with the man he is becoming due to India’s influence and the connection they share than what he and his Kraken can accomplish between the sheets;)
Book 1, in my opinion, focused on India’s willingness to do whatever it took to save her sister, even if that meant making a deal with the devil, but Book 2 is all about Jericho Forge, and Meghan March does a great job of detailing all the ways that his past has shaped his present and making it clear why his life is as regimented and driven by wealth and power as much as it is. Forge is a self-made man – someone who has fought for everything that he has obtained, but somewhere along the way, he forgot his mentor’s most important lesson, so it’s a good thing that India is now by his side to show him what he’s missing out on and remind him that there are some things that money can’t buy.
Even though India makes Jericho feel off-kilter, what she also does is open his eyes to things that he never considered as a part of his life, and while she has every right to distrust him and to question his newfound demeanor, given his reasons for marrying her in the first place, through his first person perspective, readers are aware of everything that Jericho truly feels for his wife and how much of a game changer she is.
I love that March brings a few of her worlds together when Creighton and Holly spend time with India and Jericho, and I absolutely adored the honest and open advice that Creighton gives to Jericho when he needs it the most. Creighton’s insights provide him with a clear perspective on what should matter and in what order, and without that knowledge, I feel like India and Jericho’s relationship would have been over before it ever really started to be real.
March leaves readers with quite the suspenseful ending to book two, and while I’m eager to get my hands on Heart of the Devil, the build-up to the finale is everything it needs to be due to March’s ability to shake things up and craft unexpected plot twists that will surely shake up characters’ lives as well as readers’ expectations.
