REVIEW ➼ Devil Side by Lacey Dailey


Unable to continue living on the path her father created for her, Gigi Moretti does something she’s never done before.

She takes a risk.

When musician Maxwell Mitchell waltzes into an old diner in the early morning up to his elbows in secrets, he offers Gigi the perfect escape from the future she’s never wanted.

It takes an over the top demand from her father and a shocking revelation from her fake fiancé to get her to pack her bags and ride shotgun on Max’s spontaneous tour across the country.

With each mile they drive, Max and Gigi grow closer. Over shared hotel rooms and cheesy snacks, feelings erupt and change the status of their relationship. The deeper they fall, the closer Gigi gets to the truth…

To Max’s devil side…

The question is: why is Max hiding him from her?

He’s not bad, Gia. He’s just Aiden, and I’m Max. Together, we’re two jagged parts that somehow fit without really knowing why we broke in the first place.


I don’t even know where to begin with this review. I’ve read books by Lacey before, but I don’t read blurbs, so I had no idea what to expect when I started this book and I was in for one wild, emotional, beautiful ride that I never wanted to end.

Gigi, or as Max likes to call her Gia, is unhappy with her life, she isn’t doing what she loves, but what her father deems is best for her, including an engagement to a man she doesn’t love. When Maxwell walks into her life and gives her the opportunity to take her life into her own hands and discover what she wants and do something for herself. Max is a mystery that Gia wants to solve. There is chemistry between these two and the more time they spend on the road the closer the become, minus Max’s secret.

I LOVED the friendship that Max and Gia formed at the start, everything felt so easy going and natural between them. They were each other’s support system. Watching the friendship bloom into something more of the course of the story was truly beautiful. There is just something about these two that will stick with you long after finishing the book. Random side note, I LOVED LOVED LOVED the bromance between Max and Renzo so much. It was instant between the two of them. I couldn’t get enough of them.

This story was unexpected. It took turns I didn’t expect and it made me insanely emotional. Devil Side is truly beautiful and something that we all have, though it may not always show. Max’s past made me want to jump in and hug him and Gia’s support of all sides of Max and his career is everything.

Devil Side is a MUST READ and it is one of my TOP BOOKS of 2020.
