When you live next door to the big bad wolf . . .
After years in prison, North Callaghan is finally free. But the demons haunting him still make him feel like a caged beast. He loses himself in work and hard living, coming up for air only to bed any willing woman to cross his path. So when his new neighbor snares his interest, he decides to add another notch to his bedpost. The only problem? Faith Walters is a white picket fence kind of girl.
Prepare to be devoured.
Faith’s new neighbor is the rudest man alive. He’d rather grunt at her than speak and he takes her “welcome-to-the-neighborhood” scones without a thank you. She knows she should run for the hills from the ex-con. If only he weren’t so smoldering sexy…if only the sounds of him with other women didn’t drift through their shared wall and fill her with longing…and if only he didn’t look at her like they were a collision waiting to happen.

    Plot and Story Line

    Fury On Fire the last of the Devil’s Rock series (at least that I know of) and we finally get to open up North’s story here. I have to say that this book packs a punch and I enjoyed seeing North get his story. We see the adjustments he has to make as he gets back to a normal life. We also see the complex issues that are involved for ex cons adjusting to real life again. Faith is from a family of law enforcement, her family were the ones that made the arrest on North and his brother. So there are some complications to their relationship. What really kicks this story into gear is the fireworks that these two have with each other. Their bantering, and the flirting and the sexy way these two fall for each other is fantastic. I did admire the way this author introduces us to the hardship ex convicts face, especially when they want to make a fresh start and change their lives. The romance between North and Faith was quite explosive and yet mixed in with moments of tenderness. I love the way these two fight for each other.

    The Cover

    LOVE this cover, I like the sexy pose here, and I like the way his shirt melds to his skin with  his bike on the side.

    Overall View

    About Sophie Jordan

    Pseudonym:
    Sharie Kohler

    Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.

    A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.

    In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List

    • This series isn’t for me. I read the first book, and while I couldn’t put it down, it was too much for me. I’m glad you enjoyed this one, though.

    • This series has been on my TBR list for awhile!! Maybe I will start it for my Bad Boys of Romance challenge!

    • I do plan to read this series at some point. I like that it takes a realistic view of what life is like for an ex-con. I think Jennifer Lane’s books started me thinking about that when it comes to folks who just want to never repeat the experience.

    • I love that the h/H don’t “meet” until a few chapters in! All Chained Up is still my absolute fave tho!

    • I need to try something by her

    • I really need to try these out. I do like her books and not sure why I skipped over these. Too little time I figure. lol Glad it was a good one for ya!
