It is true dealing with the devil you know is easier to manage/ cope with than the one you don’t know for better or worst. Reminds me of the meaning of marriage. Tran, Angie and the many characters in this amazing story may just discover this message. I will start this review by getting right to the point and attempt to keep it simple without providing any spoilers because I want everyone to read The Devil You Know and have the pleasure of an exciting, sexy, suspenseful narrative by this gifted novelist. The Devil You Know is my first experience with Sexcee Jackson, but it definitely will not be my last. ( I love her name because of it’s appropriateness, as well as some of her characters.) Ms Jackson has in my opinion mad skills. I was enthralled and hooked by The Devil You Know from the first page to the last and anxiously awaiting the next book, which I trust is already in the pipeline. Ms. Jackson’s craft is fun, sensual and realistic with its colorful multi-faceted characters, settings, storyline, rising and falling action, and resolution. The book contains all of the elements that a good read must maintain. The Devil You Know moves swiftly because the 300 plus pages flew by so quickly, I felt as though it was a short story. The dialogue possesses the zip and quick wit making it true to life regardless of your station in life. The jargon’s intelligent, thought provoking and engaging. Ms. Jackson made me feel as though I was an extra in the story up close and personal with all of her cast members in this narrative. I would enjoy seeing this as a movie. Throughout The Devil You Know , I had several adrenaline rushes following the twists and turns mentally, and physically taking my breath away living through the eyes of Angie and Satanya. There is plenty of dirt, evilness and suspense to hypnotize readers thanks to Ms. Jackson’s skills for conveying the struggles of her cast. I burned cookies in the oven because I was so engrossed in the reactions of the captivating events between Tran, Angie, Cheyenne, Satanya, and Dr. Colbert…the main personalities. The punchy and precision development of the personalities of the key characters and the secondary members balance the conflicts and resolutions flowing smoothly and rapidly as the speed of a rocket. Ms. Jackson’s characters will appeal to most readers because they are similar to people we know or have known during our life time. The vivid attention in the manufacturing of the settings, relationships, and sensual scenes are beyond sizzling, yet tastefully conveyed for a mature audience. Ms. Jackson utilized many smooth-tongued, covert arsenals in her writing style that constantly fascinated me and resulted in me doing a few double takes. Tran McClintock, the “wonder man” of baseball, is handsome and talented on and off the field with sensitive, loving parents who are inspirational, positive role models. Tran’s best friends, Tayonn and Christian, are true and supportive. Tran is a likable man and has a piece of my heart as he did with Angie. I understood exactly why she had a conflicted mindset. However, Tran has more “sugar, honey, ice, tea” with him than the law ought to allow as the elders would say. Tran and Angie are like moths drawn to a flame, will they get burned coming to close to its mesmerizing pull? There were times in the book where Tran had as a sexy male singer sang 4 minutes to plead his case before his beautiful yet troubled fiancee Angela… “Baby! let me explain but I don’t know what to say… I don’t know what the hell happened? I come home to try to work things out and all you’re doing is packing”. Hmmm, is this typical trying to convince his woman to stay and just listen? Ms. Jackson is so on point with her characters’ dialogue. Angela’s life experiences tugged at my heart strings and I championed her as she overcame them and evolved into an intelligent, caring, unselfish woman. As she became an adult, Angie healed and shared the healing and loving process with others that most of society would rather write off. “Only the Strong Survive”. In The Devil You Know, the reader gets some healing emotionally, sexually and perhaps a better understanding of not only the true meaning of love, but also the ability to determine when love is real and its different dimensions. The Devil You Know is a must read for the mature audience who can tell when people are real and can discern the differences. Ms. Jackson’s book, The Devil You Know, will turn you out!! I personally believe you will be as impressed with this page turner as I was; thereby, enjoying Ms. Jackson’s ingenious writing strategies while devouring The Devil You Know. I am proud to share my experiences about The Devil You Know and appreciate the life lessons /messages, as well as the unique talents of Ms. Sexcee Jackson.

In the process of filling out paperwork for the wedding and her honeymoon, she discovers that her birth certificate is false. Having grown up in an abusive Compton orphanage, violent memories start crashing back to surface. Afraid that Tran will no longer love her if she confesses about her abusive past, she turns to her best friend and confidant, Satanya. As Satanya starts to rebel and protest the marriage, Angie tries to push her away. Through many pains and heartaches, Angie must choose between her best friend and her fiancé. This book starts out with one heck of an explosive beginning and ends in a similar fashion. Sexcee Jackson delivers more dramatic twists and turns than in most Shakespearian plays. This story takes an intriguing dive into the ramifications of childhood abuse, along with the morals and justifications for every decision. Unfortunately, due to graphic nature and crude language this book will not be to everyone’s liking. There are several grammatical errors in the narration and the narration seems to deviate between a neutral point of view and a more character-based point of view. The dialect of the characters is very specific to their Compton background, yet doesn’t seem to match with their chosen careers. Overall, The Devil You Know is a thought-provoking psychological tale. Notes: The author provided a copy of this book for me to review. This review was originally posted on Ariesgrl Book Reviews website.

All anyone knows is she has a problem with "a friend" by the name of Santanya, and when you meet up with her, she ain't no joke! Come along for the ride of your life but put your seat belts on; you will need them. It was an exciting read with lots of twists, turns, questions and ultimately at the end, the answers come forth! Sexcee Jackson’s “The Devil You Know” really did grab me from the first chapter and left me wanting more as I never saw most of it playing out the way it did. Talk about weaving a web. Yes, the author definitely did. I love the way the author delved into Angie's past as well as Tran's and there were secrets kept until the end, murder, violence, fighting and ultimately a climax to the story that will leave you saying "what?" I felt like I was watching a movie and didn't want to miss anything. The only thing that took away from this novel was the poor editing. There were many errors - grammatical, spelling, punctuation issues, and misuse of words. This really did become a distraction, but I pressed through to the end. I have to take that into consideration therefore downgrade my rating. This could have been a 5-star novel, but with editing issues, the author missed the mark. I am highly anticipating a sequel.

    This book grabs you from the very beginning of the story. This is my first time reading Sexcee Jackson and I was impressed! I don't want to give anything away to spoil it for the next reader. She has all the elements for a great drama and suspense and you will not be disappointed.

I loved how parts of the story are told from each characters perspective, giving us further insight into their actions. The twists and turns keep you locked into the story turning page after page. Ms. Jackson's brilliance is further displayed in the story line where she has educated characters who seemingly act contrary to such in there personal lives. However, I feel that she has shown us what W.E.B. Dubois has explained in his theory of the duality of personalities that many African Americans have to live when dealing with their career and personal lives also called "double conscience. Her characters show how this theory is played out in the younger generation, years after Dubois'. We may be educated but we are a generation brought up in the rise of hip hop which gives us an additional language and flair. Keep writing Ms. Jackson and I'll keep reading.

    I've gotta say that this was a really good book! No exaggeration. A really good book. I love reading a book that keeps you engaged and isn't following any standard. We got some of Angie's past and present. We got background on various circumstances. We met her friends. I want to say more but anything else would reveal too much A few typos throughout kept it from being great along with the unfinished-read the sequel-ending; otherwise i would have given it a 5 (rare for me)..
