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.

***About Sophie Jordan***

Author Sophie JordanSophie 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.

***Our Thoughts***

Kassiah: I don’t usually read stories where the heroine falls for the captor, but since it’s Sophie Jordan, I couldn’t resist. She consistently writes super hot stories with relatable characters and great storylines, so of course I had to snap this one up.

Reid escaped from prison to find that his brother kidnapped the daughter of the President, Grace. You can imagine Reid’s reaction when he discovers his brother’s plan to deliver Grace to his enemy. He has no choice but to rescue her, and you know what happens next. They both try to fight the pull they feel toward each other–until they don’t. Then it’s crazy steamy hotness, all wrapped up in a thrilling story.

I really liked Reid and totally understood where he was coming from. It surprised me how much I liked him, actually. And Grace! Grace wasn’t a pushover, but she also wasn’t all I am woman–hear me roar! either. I liked that about her, and thought that she and Reid really worked–after I suspended belief on the whole scenario. Like I said, I’m not usually a fan of falling for your captor, but this was good, and I loved that Grace was thinking things through the whole time.

My favorite part had to be the build up. This couple has sparks that slow burn to a raging inferno. I loved every second of it.

So what didn’t I like? This book can totally be read as a standalone, but I really wish I had read All Chained Up, the first book in the Devil’s Rock series. I feel like I would have gotten to know Reid and his motivations even more. Also, I didn’t love the ending of this. It was wrapped up nicely, and maybe that was the problem. Regardless, I wanted more from them!

If you’re looking for a book that features an action-packed, thrilling storyline with slow-burning couple that couldn’t be more opposites, do not miss Hell Breaks Loose by Sophie Jordan.
