Still reeling from a tragedy that changed his life, baseball superstar Dante Lamonte is a broken man. He keeps his demons at bay with alcohol and kinky sex, but never finds relief.
Becca Hernandez is a sweet girl with terrible luck with men--and worse luck with sex. She hasn't been able to forget her one-night stand with Dante or how he took her way out of her comfort zone in bed, but she knew they could never be together.
When their paths cross again, they can't resist picking up where they left off. One night of passion turns into much more, but their struggles dealing with the past and the present make it difficult to imagine a future. Becca stands to lose everything when details of their less-than-vanilla night at a sex club are leaked to the press--love may be their only salvation.
Author's Note: This series is somewhat darker than my other books. Although they are all HEA's, there are elements of BDSM, ménage, hate crimes, vigilante justice and LGBTQ relationships throughout the series. If you're concerned about trigger warnings, this may not be the series for you.

First, I have to say that read Karl (Las Vegas Sidewinders #3) before I read Salvation's Inferno, so I had a lot of the back story and it added to my enjoyment of this book. Dante Lamonte is a baseball superstar who is dealing with the murder of his pregnant fiancée and his best friend about six months earlier. Becca Hernandez is head of media relations for the Las Vegas Sidewinders hockey team. She works 60 to 80 hours a week, feels like her mother’s caretaker, and has no social life. But she did have that one night stand with Dante six months ago where she fell in love with him. Dante had also fallen for her, but this was while he was still engaged so he knew it was going nowhere. When they met up again at a Christmas party in Las Vegas, they start up a relationship. Becca’s father deserted her and her mother when Becca was 14 and she worked hard to get where she is today – a successful career and owning her own house where she lives with her mother. She is very insecure, doesn’t trust anyone to put her first, and instead of talking things through Becca reacts first and thinks it through later. After a while, she was just annoying for most of the book. Dante was amazing (once I got past the prologue). He knows Becca is who he wants as a life partner and has to work through her insecurities. He is talented, wealthy, famous and good looking. She feels out of his league. He does everything imaginable to address her issues. I thought the prologue was a bit over the top, especially the first few paragraphs. But then I was really into the story and all the issues the author explored. Becca enjoyed an experience at a sex club and then had all these self-doubts about how she should feel about what she had done; I liked the way that was handled. And I can’t say enough about how I love Dante, loved him in the book Karl, love him even more in his own book.
