Tempted by Trouble by Eric Jerome Dickey

This is my review for Tempted by Trouble by Eric Jerome Dickey

In this gritty urban tale, we learn about the weight of one man's moral fortitude and right and wrong compass.

Men always seem to want the bad girl. Then they are surprised when they are betrayed. You really didn't see that coming?...
This is exactly what is wrong with Dmytryk Knight. He came, he saw her, he conquered her...or so he thought.

Things in this urban fairy tale turn sour real quick.  Once the money is gone, well you know.

But Dmytryk has a plan.  Well, at least he thinks he has a plan. He makes a deal or two with the proverbial devil. After embarking on a criminal path, he is tested at every turn. Trouble aka Cora disappears and then appears later as the enemy. At this point you start to really feel kind of bad for Dmytryk. But he is stronger than we think and also wittier.

I love the antagonists in the story, they are written in splendid diabolical fashion. Uncaring, devious and written so that the reader can enjoy hating them as much as the MC.

Nice plot twists and turns. Great read. Really entertaining. The Author does an expert job of bringing you right into the story line and leaves you reeling at the end.

Harsh language- as is a custom trait of this urban storyteller. I enjoyed the book and the complexity of the plot. There were no lags or boring parts in this expertly written tale.  The characters were fully developed, entertaining and believable.

No one can trust anyone in this story of love, obsession, greed and the ultimate betrayal of one's self. 

This story gives you a full reading experience. I give it 5 stars out of 5

Has a nice ending.
