Overview

When you live next door to the big bad wolf . . .

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.

North has spent the past years of his life in prison: an ex-con who went down for a crime that was more than justified, he’s still reliving the nightmares of all he had seen and done. Getting past the walls he’s built around himself in his freedom has him gruff, monosyllabic, and finding ways to escape his own thoughts with every possible distraction. Hard work occupies his days, but his nights are filled with various women, lots of parties and plenty of attempts to forget. Faith has struggled to move out from her family’s influence and protection, and into her own adult life. She’s open and friendly, and now everything seems to be falling into place for her, with a house just the way she likes it, and time that is her own. Until her new neighbor arrives, and with a grunt that may or may not have been “thank you” for her welcome to the neighborhood scones and a constant parade of different women screaming and panting late night, thinds were just perfect. Of course Faith knows who North is – and she knows that her family would not be pleased to know he was her neighbor: let alone want to know she finds him intriguing and sexy, and wants to know more. That would send her family off the rails: she’s got no business being involved with (or near) the danger that is North. I loved the way Jordan revealed North’s story and provided a look into his struggles with his guilt, remorse and adjusting to life as a free man with a felony conviction. His reluctance to get involved with Faith, or involve himself with anyone is clear to see, and his inability to trust in people or the world around him is clear to see, and understandable. He and his brother were justified in the beat down they delivered to the man who raped their cousin – neither wanted him dead – but everything snowballed and here we are. Like most people, North isn’t all good or all bad: he’s got his issues and his problems, but he’s trying to find a new way to survive. On the other hand, Faith, while a wonderful character, is a bit innocent and quick to connect and attach herself to North. If I had one issue with the story it is that most of North’s revelations were prior to meeting Faith face to face, and this didn’t give us that solid sense of a connection that was more than lust-fueled. BUT make no mistake: that lust-fueled connection combined with North’s protective sense of chivalry combined to make one explosive and steamy time between the two of them. They do connect best, I think, in this book when they are alone and touching – when the sparks are like 4th of July fireworks and the only words need to be said are yes, more, and oh yes. And I do think that by the end of the story, I did find Faith’s instant-on switch to love show a bit of her innocence, but a piece of the surety with which she viewed North: knowing he was a good man, who made some bad choices and learned from them, the hard way. Overall, I found the story hard to put down even as I had moments of wanting to smack them both occasionally. Insets and views to earlier events in the series were explained, and I never felt lost with references to those earlier events. In fact, I now need to go back and start this series from the beginning, the first I’ve read from Sophie Jordan from her contemporary work. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I borrowed this book from my library......and I loved it! I couldn't wait for it to be released. This 3rd entry was a bit different than the first 2 in that it didn't have the "action" element. This is a story about North's path to forgiving himself and opening his heart. It was more about the relationship between the H and h. I felt the ending was a bit rushed bc the storyline w her family not being happy w North was never resolved. But I did love the epilogue! Can't wait for the next one?! I hope!

Not as good as the first book. Only 200 pages. Some loose ends but maybe there will be a book 4. 2nd book was good. Had more of a story, good guy vs bad guy.

What I Liked: I have to admit - I was really excited about this book, after finishing Hell Breaks Loose. Heck, I was excited to read it after only reading All Chained Up. I knew this third book would be about North, and I really wanted to read his story. While my favorite book of the series remains All Chained Up, I think on comes in second. Faith is moving into her own place - finally. At twenty-six, she's either lived in school dorms (in undergrad and grad school), or at home with father. Her father is a retired sheriff and her older brother Hale is the current sheriff, and her other older brother is an Army Ranger. With these three men in her life, she hasn't had a lot of privacy, or a personal life. Living alone will allow her to have both. She doesn't anticipate her sinfully attractive neighbor, North. North has been out of Devil's Rock for several years, and he just wants to be left alone. He has one-night stand after one-night stand, and avoids his older brother Knox and wife Briar. But he can't seem to avoid his prim and proper neighbor, who gets under his skin within days of her moving in next door. As much as he'd love to stay far away from this good girl, he can't help his curiosity - and she can't help hers. I honestly really liked the structure of this story. It's definitely a romance story and the romance is at the forefront, but it's different because the lust factor doesn't hit immediately as the story begins. Faith and North "meet" early in the book (they don't have a formal, traditional introduction), though they don't go face-to-face for at least 10% of the book. The first 10%-20% of the book focuses on Faith's newfound independence, and North's terrible loneliness, which he tries to fill with beer and sex and avoiding his brother. I liked how this began! It wasn't instant lust or the couple having sex (or almost) within the first chapters, which is definitely different. North gets on Faith's nerves almost immediately, for constantly making a racket (well, his guest of the night), for parking his motorcycle in her half of the driveway (they share a driveway), and things like that.

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!
