There are bad boys and then there are the men of Devil's Rock….
Some men come with a built-in warning label. Knox Callaghan is one of them. Danger radiates from every lean, muscled inch of him, and his deep blue eyes seem to see right through to Briar Davis's most secret fantasies. But there's one major problem: Briar is a nurse volunteering at the local prison, and Knox is an inmate who should be off-limits in every way.
Knox feels it too—a shocking animal magnetism that drives him to risk his own life to protect Briar's. Paroled at last, he tries to resist her. She's too innocent, too sweet, and she has no idea what Knox is capable of. But a single touch can lead to a kiss—and a taste…until the only crime is denying what feels so right…
Hell hath no hunger like a man let out of a cage . . .
Shy and awkward, First Daughter Grace Reeves has always done what she's told. Tired of taking orders, she escapes her security detail for a rare moment of peace. Except her worst nightmare comes to life when a ruthless gang of criminals abducts her. Her only choice is to place her trust in Reid Allister, an escaped convict whose piercing gaze awakens something deep inside her. Reid is nothing like her other captors.
He's tougher, smarter…and one blistering look from him makes her hotter than any man ever has.
Reid spent years plotting escape and revenge . . .years without a woman in his bed. For this hardened felon, Grace Reeves isn't just out of his league—she's from another planet, but that doesn't stop him from wanting her. Escaping Devil's Rock was tough, but resisting this woman could be the end of him. For a man with nothing to lose, protecting her . . . claiming her as his own, becomes more necessary than his next breath.
I devoured these books! They were awesome and enjoyable, and I just had to have more! While I started reading this series out of order (I was about 1/4 into Hell Breaks Loose before I knew about All Chained Up) I did eventually read and finish All Chained Up before Hell Breaks Loose!
The thing about these books, were they were about this group of guys-and two of them brothers, Knox and North, who is getting the 3rd book. And these guys are, or were, in prison. And that's had a big impact on their lives-how they got there, and living there. And yeah, it was also about romance!
It took some pretty strong lades to take these guys on! And while they didn't show that at first, what with prison and being kidnapped being scary, they both didn't give into that fear. Well. much. But that's what makes them brave, not fearless!
There were issues that kept these couples away from each other. Whether personal issues or outside forces, or a mix of both, they worked, or realized,or were forced into thinking things that left things working out how we (and they!) wanted them to!
Just fantastic to read these books, they were a bit dark, and a lot enticing, and I can't wait to read more!
