Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: All Chained Up (Devil's Rock #1) by Sophie Jordan

Prison hot, a term a friend of mine used once, and when I read Sophie Jordan’s latest, All Chained Up, that term came into clear focus for me. Knox Callaghan is prison hot! Now, I understand the whole convicted felon thing may not be for you, but once you learn how he got there, you may change your mind. It certainly changed mine.

Briar is a nurse. She and her boss are volunteering at the prison till they hire a new doctor. Of course being in that facility and interacting with the convicts can be daunting, but Briar puts on a brave face and does her job. Enter Knox. The physical attraction she feels to him is electrifying, and unnerving. She doesn’t do bad boys. And really how more bad can you get than prison? But damn, she can’t get him out of her head. Especially when he saves her life.

Knox feels the heat between them too. One encounter and the sexy little nurse is under his skin. After overhearing a plan to storm the infirmary and assault the pretty nurse, Knox feels overwhelmed to protect her. Putting his own plan in motion, he guarantees himself a spot in the room when the assault is to take place.

Even as he was hauled off her and dragged away, she felt connected to those eyes, that face, that man.

Knox is soon up for parole, and because of his heroic actions, this time around he’s granted it. He’s now a free man. A man Briar never expected to run into on a quick ice cream run to the local store…at night. The attraction is still there for them. The heat. The sizzle. Her body is at odds with her head. She wants this man, but he was a felon, he was in jail for a reason. Libido in charge, she invites him home with her.

Maybe she didn’t realize that he was the wolf and she the lamb. That inviting him over meant he was going to devour every inch of her.

I have to say this is Sophie Jordan’s hottest book by far. And while the sex between Knox and Briar certainly burn up the pages, there is so much more to them. Real feelings develop. But Knox–sweet, hardheaded man–doesn’t think he deserves a woman like Briar. He thinks he’s tainted. He couldn’t be further from the truth. He’s exactly what she needs and vice versa. They make each other better and stronger. They belong together.

She was his. And he was hers. She felt that, too, even if she couldn’t say it out loud.

This book made me fan myself, swoon, made my heart ache, my pulse race, and in the end left me with a big sappy smile on my face. What a great start to a new series. I need book 2. Now. How much longer till July?

Some men come with a built-in warning label. Knox Callaghan is one of them. Danger radiates from every lean, muscled inch of him, and his deep blue eyes seem to see right through to Briar Davis’s most secret fantasies. But there’s one major problem: Briar is a nurse volunteering at the local prison, and Knox is an inmate who should be off-limits in every way.

Knox feels it too—a shocking animal magnetism that drives him to risk his own life to protect Briar’s. Paroled at last, he tries to resist her. She’s too innocent, too sweet, and she has no idea what Knox is capable of. But a single touch can lead to a kiss—and a taste . . . until the only crime is denying what feels so right . . .

Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.

A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.

In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List.
