This book is delicious. If you haven’t read All Chained Up, the first book in this series, you definitely should, but it’s not necessary to love this one. Reid is a convincingly tortured bad boy. While under no circumstances would I want to date him in real life, he is a perfect hero for this plot. Grace, the First Daughter, is actually a little less likeable, as she comes off as self-centered and spineless, but I liked her more as we got to know her. While the plot makes the primary conflict seem very external, it really isn’t. One of the things I adore about the author is her ability to weave internal and external conflict so beautifully, and this one didn’t let me down. If you’re looking for some serious bad boy romance as we get ready to enter the chilly reading months, this one’s for you.— Anna Brown- RWA Steffie Walker Bookseller of the Year- Katy Budget Books
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.
