Synopsis from Goodreads

Sempire Seductions, Book 2

When Valia approaches the Ferox demon hoping for scorching sex and a feed, she doesn’t expect to be handcuffed, transported to the demon realm, accused of dirty deeds she has no memory of committing and held captive for three days. Even though she believes her captor to be crazy, she feels a connection to him she’s never experienced before.

When Rydin senses the Sempire who locked him up, fed on him and used him as a sex slave many years ago, he knows his wait for revenge is finally over. Burning with the need to punish her, he imprisons her in the demon realm, where she is at his mercy. But as much as he tries to ignore it, a connection sparks between them every time they touch.


      Valia's Villain is book 2 in Jocelyn Dex's Sempire Seduction series. Dex has managed to make this book even sexier than her first one, which I adored. In this sequel, we follow Araya's vivacious sister, Valia. Valia is a free-spirited demon who gets what she wants, when she wants. What she wants right now is a hot guy in a club. She seems to be immediately attracted to a Ferox demon who she has to have. He wants her too, it turns out. But not fully for the reasons she thinks. He wants to get revenge on her from being her prisoner thirty years ago. The Ferox demon, Rydin, was under contract. Her keeping him imprisoned has added an extra 50 years on his contract. He hates her for what she did, but he also can't fight the fact that he has feelings for her too.

      *fans self* Well, goodness. Man, what an incredibly sexy read. I had a lot of fun reading this. Valia was quite a crazy character, but she was a lot of fun. She was always cracking jokes. She doesn't scare easily and she was very stubborn. There are times when she sort of reminded me of a teenager in the book. Araya is the younger sister, but you would never know it. Rydin is a Ferox demon. Ferox demons are usually sold into slavery at a very young age. Rydin is carrying out a job for the demon who holds his contract. While doing a job, Rydin kidnaps Valia and takes her back to the demon realm. He wants to starve her and keep her captive like she did to him thirty years ago. Valia doesn't remember Rydin at all. Even though she is supposed to be scared, Rydin is surprised that Valia is not that frightened because she can see he wants her no matter how much he claims to hate her. I loved the push-pull-sex relationship they had going on. Rydin is sweetheart deep, deep, deep down and needs a strong woman at his back. Valia had all of that and more.

      I really love Rydin's story in this book. Rydin has been contracted to an Incubus demon named Debol. Debol is quite evil. He keeps a Sempire demon as a bargaining chip and has Rydin kill whoever he wants for no real reason (at least that we know of). Debol was just maniacal, but later on we see he is quite the coward. Valia finds out about Rydin's contract and she wants to help him. He doesn't trust her. He thinks it is a ruse so she can escape. I love how this changes for Rydin and Valia. It made me love Valia more seeing how she went about the last couple of chapters.

      I really liked this book. I did have a couple of issues. I would have liked to know more about Debol and why he had Rydin kill off people in the book. I really wanted to know. I was especially curious with the character of Baden. What was the deal there? I hope we get more about Baden and his family dilemma. I also wish we had a backstory about Valia. I don't feel like I learned a lot about her. I love her personality even when she talks like a teenager sometimes, but what makes her who she is. Not much about her past except what happened between her and Rydin in the past.

      Overall, this was a great novella. It was super sexy and fun. It is definitely an erotic read. The language may be a bit much for some. I have grown quite a bit with these. A few years ago I probably wouldn't have been so on board, but I have grown a bit since then and I get it now. Nonetheless, be cautious if erotic language isn't your thing. The characters made me laugh and the book had a lot of energy. I love what we learn about Fin and I still can't wait to see where his story goes. I am also very curious about Baden. This is a fun read that you will speed through. I am very addicted to this series and you will be too.
