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.

"Worth every bit of my credit"
If you can catch the first in this series. The narrator snatches you right into the story. Convicted felon and I prison escapee, Reid is all alpha and extremely sensitive in this story. I can't wait until the next in this series is out. If you like an erotic romance that will endure shivers without the need of a major back story plot. This is it for you! Sophie Jordan has impressed me thoroughly.
"Devil's Rock Hot"
Yep, it’s hot as hell, but the heat is all between the sheets (since the story takes place in winter). Graphic romantic sex scenes, some violence, and a fast-moving story to frame the sex scenes.
Reid Alistair is a knight in tarnished armor serving a life sentence for murdering a security guard, a crime of which he’s innocent. After 11 years in Devil’s Rock penitentiary in West Texas, he’s finally got an escape plan. His obsession now is to take revenge on the drug lord (and worse) who, when the young Reid wised up and tried to leave the gang, framed him for the guard’s murder and made sure the charge stuck. Reid also wants to reconnect with his younger brother, who he is afraid is now running with the gang.
Reid finds his drug-addled brother, who is indeed still on the bad side. In fact, when Reid shows up, the gang has just kidnapped the president’s daughter, Grace. (Yes, that’s right, the President’s daughter :-) It’s all pretty far-fetched, but we can bet that (1) Reid will save the day and (2) there will be steamy sex.
I didn’t think Reid’s story was quite as good as his friend Knox Callaghan's story in the first book of this series, “All Chained Up.” But if you like this kind of erotic, escapist, romance/adventure fantasy, “Hell Breaks Loose” is well done. Both Reid and Grace are immensely likable and strangely -- given the stretch-your-credulity storyline -- believable.
I especially enjoy the humor Sophy Jordan manages to insert in unexpected places; the chase scene through the winter woods alone was worth the credit for the smiles I got out of it. And I really like Christian Fox's narration. No Texas accent attempted, but it all works for me!
Although Grace and Reid’s story is tied up neatly, we left North Callaghan (brother of Knox) back in Devil’s Rock, where he (undeservedly) took the fall for Reid’s escape. North’s story is apparently up next in the third book of the series, “Fury on Fire.” And we last saw Reid’s brother being cuffed and stuffed into a squad car. Let's see if *he* winds up in the same prison, and whether Sophy Jordan will continue to write about “The Men of Devil’s Rock.”
