Devil of Dublin by BB Easton is now live!
From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of 44 Chapters About 4 Men (inspiration for the Netflix Original series Sex/Life) comes a dark mafia romance steeped in Irish folklore.
I can’t remember anymore if my grandfather’s eyes were blue or green, but I’ll never forget the way they wrinkled at the corners when he laughed at one of his own jokes. Or the way they sparkled with mischief when he told me tales about the magical creatures that dwelled in the forest behind his humble Irish sheep farm—shy fairies who liked to eat tea biscuits, cruel witches who liked to eat children, a moody lake spirit with a taste for expensive gifts.
As a child, I believed every fantastical word. But when he warned me about the mute boy who also lurked in those woods, the one the priest had declared to be the spawn of Satan himself, I refused to listen. Kellen wasn’t evil. He was kind, and beautiful, and special, and hurting. He was my friend. And with every summer I spent stolen away with him in those enchanted woods, he grew to become so much more.
But when I return to Glenshire as an adult, grieving and engaged to someone else, all those legends quickly morph into nightmares.
My grandfather had been right about everything, especially the boy.
If only I had listened.

When I first heard about Devil of Dublin, I knew I had to get my hands on this book. Devil of Dublin is a dark and intriguing story filled with Irish scenery and folklore, violence, and enough suspense to keep you on your toes.
Darby and Kellan’s story spanned many years and left me captivated from their first encounter. Darby and Kellan had an instant connection and bond. Their lives are on different paths and no matter how hard he tries, Kellan can’t escape the demons and trauma of his past. Kellan is so damaged and the only thing that keeps the darkness away is Darby. Together these two will go on a dark and intriguing journey. The road to happily ever after isn’t an easy one for these two and it will definitely keep readers on their toes.
Overall I thought this book was an ok read. I loved the setting and the folklore that accompanied it. I will say that while I did find some aspects of this story to be dark, it wasn’t as dark or intense as I was hoping it would be, and that might just be me, which is ok. I loved Darby and Kellan together. They were two lost souls that couldn’t be more perfect for one another.

Meet BB Easton
Wall Street Journal bestselling author BB Easton lives in the suburbs of Atlanta with her long-suffering husband, Ken, and two adorable children. A few years ago, she quit her job as a school psychologist to write books about her punk rock past and deviant sexual history full-time. Ken wasn’t super excited about that, but now that he’s appeared in three of her books and inspired a TV show character, he’s incredibly supportive.
BB’s debut memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men, went on to inspire the Netflix original series, Sex/Life, which was viewed by 67 million households worldwide within the first month making it the 3rd most-watched Netflix original series of all time. Because she had so much fun writing 44 Chapters, BB went on to publish four more wickedly funny, shockingly steamy, and heartwarmingly autobiographical books, one for each man in her memoir—Skin, Speed, Star, and Suit.
The Rain Trilogy—a dark, immersive, end-of-the-world romance—was BB’s first work of fiction. Or at least, that’s what she thought when she wrote it in 2019. Then, 2020 hit, and all of her dystopian plot points started coming true. Hoping to fix everything, BB returned with a fun, feel-good romantic comedy called Group Therapy, but alas, the world is still on fire … and so is BB’s desire to write intense, us-against-the-world romances. Her next release, Devil of Dublin, isa dark Irish mafia romance steeped in folklore and family secrets.
