BY Sophie Jordan
Contemporary Romance

Goodreads Summary:
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.

Gabrielle's Review:
OMG THIS BOOK. I love all of Sophie Jordan's books but this one was extra hot and entertaining!
Since the beginning, I've LOVED North. He was the nice kid who loved his cousin so much that when he found out she was raped, he and his brother Knox went and found the kid responsible and beat him to death. But after he was sent to prison and his sentence was made even longer, he hardened his heart and allowed no one in. Not Knox, who settled down and especially not a good girl like Faith Walters.
Faith bought a duplex after moving back in with her father after college. She felt like she had to take care of him and her older brother ever since her mother passed away. After both her father and brother begged her to not move out on her own, she did anyway because she wanted the independence. But what she didn't expect was to move in next to North Callaghan, an ex-convict with a record for murder.
The first day she moves in, she hears him having wild rough sex. It both annoys her and excites her at the same time even though she hadn't even met the man yet. She left notes but he ignored them until finally they met but he never saw her face because she had a facial mask on. 
Their spark was instantaneous even though they both tried to deny it. North was too stuck in his own head and Faith acted like she had a stick up her butt. Walls start to tumble down but when Faith's brother shows up and realizes North spent all of his adult life in prison, North finds out that Faith already knew even though he didn't tell her. After that, he ignores Faith and tries to never be home when he knows she's around.
But when someone threatens Faith's life, it's North who is there and it's him who she begs to stay the night with her because she was too shaken up. But can they push past all their problems and find themselves in each other's arms?
I seriously love North but I wanted to smack him around a few times throughout the book. Faith wasn't much better considering she wants the "boring" type when deep down she wants to experience what it's like to be with a man like North. I loved the back and forth bantering between the two. It was a great build up to when they realized they wanted more from each other. The entire Devil's Rock series rocked and I wish I could reread them for the first time again. When I first heard it was about cons I wasn't sure I'd like it but when I realized they weren't actually bad guys I decided to read them AND I'M SO GLAD I DID. If you love a good romance with some suspense then you need to check this book out!
