Devil on Your Back is Now Available! 


When all you have left is choice, how do you ensure you make the right one? I thought that losing my family was the linchpin to my suffering; the thing which would forever hold my head under the dark waters of regret. But I was wrong … so wrong. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, and what threatens us only serves to feed the beast. My boy is in trouble, and it’s time this father stood up for what he should have a long time ago. Only, after years of believing I deserved to spend my days alone, punishing myself for the mistakes I made, I’ve finally found the truth—her. When she needs me as much as my son, how will I decide which path to take? Will I be doomed to forever make the wrong choice? And will I, once again, lose everything I love and drown in my regret?

REVIEW BY JENNIFER FOR MNP Devil on Your BackDevil on Your Back by Max Henry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.

Devil on Your Back is an exciting read that will capture your attention in the very beginning, and not let go until the very end….and that’s only because you don’t want to be the weird girl who is caught staring at the very last page of the book, afraid to say goodbye to the characters. Of course, once your brain kicks back on and you realize you can re-read it at any time, you start to let go….slowly. The point is, this story is such a great read and readers will definitely be giving this book another read. The story is well-written, enthralling, and easy to follow. The characters are intriguing, well-developed, and full of emotion.

Vince and Sonya surprised me. As I kept reading, the more I became invested in these characters. Vince and Sonya haven’t been dealt an easy life. They both are mourning their significant others and can’t seem to find peace and let them go. Vince turns to alcohol to numb his pain and let his life spiral out of control. Certain circumstances lead him to Sonya. The attraction is instant and the chemistry is all consuming. Sonya is exactly what Vince needs. She’s compassionate, yet strong and not afraid to voice her opinion. Both have pasts, but isn’t defined by them. The story itself has many layers and the relationship Vince and Sonya form, is only part of the story. The other part has deal with Vince finding his son and getting him out of trouble. One of the many aspects of this story that I enjoyed, was that the author gives us a glimpse into what Vince is thinking and what Sonya is thinking. With so much going on in the story, it was great to get that perspective. Devil on Your Back is definitely a book to add to your reading list. Reviewed by Jennifer for MNP
