The deal was simple. Karina Watson simply had to agree to spend one month with the seductive stranger she knew nothing about, and Damien Bishop would make sure her debt-ridden parents and the rest of her education would be taken care of. Thinking there's no way this man can be serious, Karina agrees, calling his bluff.
But Damien never makes a promise he can't keep. And what Karina believes to be a straight-forward deal quickly becomes a battle of wills—and restraint—as she gets caught up in the devil's game.

When we meet Karina, she's serving up coffee when HE walks in. The HE is Damien Bishop, billionaire entrepreneur and he sets his sights on her. The two couldn't be more different. Karina is hoping to start graduate school while at the same time, her parents have been paralyzed by medical debts and are about to lose their house. Damien makes her an offer. Come to Miami for a month and not only will he cover her parents' debt, he'll pay for graduate school. Karina reluctantly agrees in THE DEVIL'S GAME by Alex Strong.
This starts as your typical billionaire used to getting his way story, but surprisingly, he doesn't push Karina to do anything against her will. The story is put together well. All the elements are there. The interactions between the couple are engaging. The story develops slowly. One of my favorite parts of the story is Damien's assistant, Tom. He grows in character and I enjoyed the scenes with him.
This is a nice romance with some erotica elements. For me, though, I found the story moved way too slow. There wasn't enough going on to drive the story. Damien's Achilles heel was never divulged and I was left wondering why he behaved the way he did. Aspects of the story seemed to drag out and I found myself wanting to skip ahead, but managed to resist. Overall, it's a fine story, it simply wasn't engaging enough for me and it had a hard time holding my attention.
