Title: ALL CHAINED UP
Author: Sophie Jordan
Genre: Adult Contemporary
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 . . .
Gabrielle's 5 Star Review:
Briar is a nurse who wants to work her way to the top so she volunteers to help her boss at Devil's Rock Penitentiary. She's a good girl who doesn't know how to handle herself around hardened criminals. Knox gets hurt in a fight the first day she's there and they have an immediate attraction. An attraction so strong, Briar can't help but think about him 24/7. But inside a prison, you are never safe, not even when there are armed guards and a panic button. Two criminals plan something but Knox finds out and saves Briar.
Soon after he is released from prison but he forces himself to not search for Briar, the only woman he could think about. Fate had other plans. A spicy, hot romance blooms between them even though both of them try to fight their feelings.
I can't believe this was Sophie Jordan's first Contemporary Romance because she captivated me from page one. I couldn't put the book down. I read while I cooked dinner and then read all through the night. Briar and Knox both had to fight their inner demons in order to finally admit their feelings. Their emotions were so raw and real. I felt every bit of emotion they did.
Knox made me angry throughout the book with his uncertainties and mind games but he certainly made up for it. If Sophie just made him fall into Briar's arms and confess his love, it wouldn't have been real and that was what this book was. Real. Powerful. Sexy. Hot. It was everything I wanted in it and more. It won't disappoint!
Hell Breaks Loose (Devil's Rock book #2) comes out in July! Mark it on your calendars!
