I count it as one of the best in the lesbian romance section, and I think the author is doing a fantastic job of describing New Orleans, especially for people who've never been.
However, there are a couple of things that I have noticed throughout the series that kind of put a hitch in the experience, at least for me. Honestly, if you only plan on reading each book once, you probably won't even notice, and it's probably just me. But I've always had a slight problem with Vali's characters in the Casey books. Slight spoilers, and I mean slight. Barely there, no major plot points to be stumbled upon.
I find most of the characters in this series to be highly unbelievable. This includes pretty much all of the main chars, but especially Cain. The author somehow managed to paint a criminal as this amazingly incorruptible person, which really doesn't make any sense; she is a criminal.
Besides being a mob boss and periodically killing people. But even then the victims are always portrayed as cruel, or "the bad guys. Everywhere she goes women are attracted to her, whether straight or gay themselves. I understand the author had to somehow convince the readers to like the main character even though she IS technically a bad guy, but making her into this "hero" doesn't really do it well. I mean, you could argue that she's TOO clever I guess. Another thing that became clear through some rereads, if you're not with Cain, you're either incompetent, selfish or just plain evil.
Emma before they got back together. Then they get back together and all the sudden she's the mother, daughter and wife everyone wants. After Muriel gets together with Shelby, she goes from slick, intelligent lawyer type, to more of a weak Every enemy mob boss is seen as cruel and they blunder through every one of their operations. It's like, you're talking about drug lords at the top of the food chain, I doubt they'll be making stupid mistakes like that. And oh gosh, don't even get me started on the FBI.
As someone who's uncle counts himself among their ranks, the way they botch everything in the books is just plain embarrassing. There's a scene in the book that made me want to shake my head at the author. I can promise you, if the FBI did do something like that I'm not saying they don't , they'd at least be smart enough not to do it in public. One last thing, and it's one of the ones that's gotten me since the first book, and made another appearance in this one in a way.
You are married for however many years, have managed to build a life together, create a family together and you just let the love of your life walk out with barely an argument?
It's like Emma said, "I'm leaving," and Cain was like, "Ok. In my opinion, love is something you fight for. Emma was selfish and in the wrong for leaving like that, but I think I might've tried for longer than 10 minutes to convince her to stay. Another situation like that happened with Remi and Dallas, and it really just baffled me. If you're ready to just walk away at a moments notice, what does that say about your relationship? I makes me a little disappointed Vali spent so much time weaving the intricacies of the mob life but left her characters shallow and very black and white. I just realized this review turned out far more negative then I had planned.
Maybe just take this as more of a critique than a review, as well as with a grain of salt. Either way, I will be buying the next book in the series. I have been reading Ali Vali Caine Casey series and loving them. I think this one might be my favorite book yet.
It is so action packed and you are meeting lots of new characters. She involves you from the first word to the last. Many would say this book was good verses evil. But it sure makes you question which is which. Excellent book, excellent storyline and excellent characters. I'm off to read number five. Jan 14, Suzy Q rated it it was amazing. I have been reading Ali Vali Caine Casey series and loving them. I think this one might be my favorite book yet.
It is so action packed and you are meeting lots of new characters. I just love it when Emmy calls Caine mobster Keep em coming Ali. No where near as good as the last 3. This one was only ok to me. I was pretty disappointed. I've loved the series up until this book. I'm considering not continuing the series because of my feelings about this one. However, curiosity will likely get the better of me. This is the one that weaned me off the series for good May 04, Warmus rated it really liked it Shelves: I like how Vali interweaves the title with Cain's philosophies about the devil.
The scene in Talbot's office proves that Emma is a devoted partner and enhances Cain. Even though this book is a solid continuation of the series, it fizzled out compared to the previous ones. The most entertaining parts of this story were Brent's heavy-handed actions towards Cain and Emma protection of Cain while she was in the hospital.
I was tempted to skip the plot involving Dallas and Remi because it felt as if I like how Vali interweaves the title with Cain's philosophies about the devil. I was tempted to skip the plot involving Dallas and Remi because it felt as if their story took away from the Casey Clan. Instead of Dallas and Remi, it would have been nice to read more about Muriel either with Shelby or with someone else.
Muriel had a lot of character in The Devil Inside , but she too seemed to loose that sharp wit she possessed at the warehouse in the first book. I haven't mentioned in my previous reviews that the sex scenes feel incomplete. The scenes have great build ups and climaxes, but they end abruptly. No fade to black, just Hopefully, this book is the calm before the storm that's to be released in The Devil's Orchard. Oct 20, R. K Merley rated it really liked it.
I've been putting off reading this book and today, after finding out my book was due, I quickly read through it in a hurry starting from five and ending at eight. Honestly, Ali Vali never fails to amaze me. But today was not the case rather I focused more on Muriel than anyone else. She's really starting to grow on me and I feel like I can really sympathize with her. She just has her head every I've been putting off reading this book and today, after finding out my book was due, I quickly read through it in a hurry starting from five and ending at eight.
She just has her head everywhere, but she quickly redeems herself. I find myself hating Shelby after every book. And what they did to Cain made me completely sick to my stomach! Go on Emma, beat them with a bat! This might sound ludicrous, but I really liked that Carlos character. Rick's sister seems to be another eye-candy of mine. I hope I'll see them in the future Casey series.
Now if only I could get my hands on novel five somehow.. Feb 07, M. Logan rated it really liked it Shelves: This the fourth book in the Casey Family Saga series and a good read. For some reason, I have skipped the third book which I will have to go track down, and I am eagerly looking forward to the fifth. Cain Casey is a woman you don't want for an enemy but her loyalty and her love of family is admirable.
Mar 24, Heidi rated it really liked it. Cain Casey and her family face more conflict with the FBI and with other mob leaders. The drug lords want to use Casey to get better established in New Orleans. While all that goes on there is trouble brewing for Remi and Dallas.
Wonder what twists will be coming in book 5? Jun 17, Sara rated it it was ok. Not my usual genre so I had a bit of difficulty wading through the context and setting. I did however appreciate that I remained interested in the characters and the human element. The importance of love, family and friends. Jun 05, Genny rated it really liked it.
