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.

I thought I would show TWO inspirations!  A before and after set: one for when Grace was a proper First Daughter and the other when Grace decided to follow her dreams!

Prim & Proper

The Prim & Proper set is elegant and simple.  I see Grace rocking these outfits while campaigning for her father, the President.  I picked simple and neutral colors for this set.

Belle Naturelle

Now, this set is inspired by the time when Grace is finally pursuing her dreams and going back to school.  I see her wear simple styles but a more relaxed laid back look.

Here we are on book #2, Hell Breaks Loose and what an adventure it has been!  I have to admit that I read All Chained Up and Hell Breaks Loose back to back and I was just blown away by how amazing the books are!

Sophie Jordan KNOWS how to write sensitive/trigger warning subjects because I never once felt uncomfortable about these two books!  I mean, EX-CONS?  And what’s worse, the hero Reid is an ESCAPED CONVICT, unlike Knox who was paroled!  Oh, and did I mention that there IS KIDNAPPING INVOLVED?

Woah! Wait, wait wait!  before you get up on your high horse, let me explain.  Reid WASN’T involved in the kidnapping BUT HE WAS AN ACCOMPLICE.  Well, sort of.  He did save Grace from being raped, but he DID take her into the woods and kept her there because he wanted revenge.  So yes, in a sense, he was involved.  Even though it will be revealed in the end that he is innocent of the crime he was sent to jail for.

But yes, there is the proverbial Stockholm syndrome, but I also think that it goes deeper than that.  Grace is the President’s daughter and wants nothing to do with being in the spotlight.  She has also put a stop to her dreams to help in her father’s campaign to the point of agreeing to marry a guy picked out by her father.  There are some issues Grace has to overcome and Reid helped her through it!  I mean, he did redeem himself, in my opinion, to the point of giving up Grace because he loved her. sigh*

Because of the issues the two characters are facing (yes Reid has a lot, too), I was more emotionally involved and I connected to the story on a more emotional level.  Yes, all hail the UGLY CRY!

This book just hit me at the right spot this time and I don’t regret reading it!

If you love bad boys (I mean, who doesn’t?) definitely give this book a shot!
