Release Day and Review – Devil On Your Back by Max Henry

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?



As the second book in the Butcher Brothers series, this is Vince’s story.  As we learned in book one, Vince is Malice’s father.  I really want to hate Vince, really want to but Max Henry makes it a bit hard to do that.  He is a very arrogant SOB, but he suffered the loss of his only love and it destroyed him to the core.  That is no excuse for him to treat his only child the way he did and that is what I do not like about him.

That being said, this book is a grueling account of how far down the hole he actually fell before he found the people that saved him from himself.  When he woke to find himself being cared for by the one woman that may just bring him back to life, he decides to stay on with the club and get his life back.

When club troubles cross with family, Vince needs to decide if contacting is estranged son after many years is worth saving his life; if his son will even speak to him.

There are a few things that got to me with this book, the fact that after twenty some years Malice forgave his father rather quickly and only in a week they were like old buddies again.  I really didn’t like the way he treated Sonya at first, I understand it was stress and pressure and he really didn’t know how to treat a woman after so long, but he could have been a little nicer to her.  I also had a hard time trying to figure out where exactly this book took place.  From some of the references it seemed like it was in the United States, but then when the guys were talking, they were using slang that was not American.

I still give this book a solid 4 stars.  It was a great story, and I’m deeply invested and cannot wait to read the next installment.  I’m hoping that a Ty and Ramona story will come soon as well.



Originally born and bred in Canterbury, New Zealand, Max now resides with her family in beautiful and sunny Queensland, Australia.
Life with two young children can be hectic at times, and although she may not write as often as she would like, Max wouldn’t change a thing.
