Hell Breaks Loose Review & Giveaway


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.

Gabrielle's 5 Star ***** Review:

Grace Reeves does exactly as she's told by her father. He keeps her sheltered and finds the man for her to marry even though she won't ever love him. She believes all her father loves her for is publicity for his political campaign.

Reid Allister is in prison for life when he causes a fight in Devil's Rock so he can be sent to a hospital. He knows he isn't a good person and he never tries to hide that fact when he does meet Grace. 

Grace decides she is done being the obedient daughter and wants to go out on a stroll by herself. When her "babysitter" is busy she sneaks out and is almost instantly kidnapped by thugs. They bring her back to where they live and guess who shows up shortly after? Yes --- Reid. They want to kill her, abuse her, and even rape her but Reid puts a stop to it. But he isn't sure how long he can keep them away from her. Her life could be ended at any moment if their boss gives the word.

Grace doesn't know how to react when she sees a huge obvious felon walk into her room. He looks mean and roughened by being in prison but he's also one of the hottest men she has ever laid eyes on. He awakens her sexual side that she never knew she had.

He promises to get her out of that house and away from the dangerous thugs. But what she doesn't realize is that he won't send her home either. He needs to have his revenge and if the first daughter shows up at home and is on the news then the man he wants to kill will know he set her free. So, he keeps her at his grandfather's old house and she tries everything to escape. But slowly, the two of them fall for each other... And would do anything to protect each other.

I originally thought the second book would be about North because he is Knox's brother and I was a little let down. You are kind of built up to hear North's story all throughout All Chained Up. But once I started reading I completely forgot and got wrapped up in Reid's plan and hotness.

Grace and Reid are so hot they burn like a fleeting star. Everything about them drew me in. Her innocence... His criminal record... Their intense relationship from the start. I had no complaints about anything. I devoured the entire book within one sitting. May I have a Reid for myself? Please? I also loved that she was a little "chubby" but Reid still wanted her. It shows girls and women that you don't need to be a stick figure to get a man's attraction or love.

I also loved both of their bravery. Both of them wanted to sacrifice their own well-being for the other. Grace makes a deal that compromises her happiness to make Reid happy and Reid does the same but neither of them knew.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great romance with some adventure in it. OR to anyone just loves romance because this book was hot hot hot!
