The last person Devil expects to see in a BDSM club is the best friend of his buddy’s new wife, Jessica Blaine. The all-American apple pie woman he wants so badly it’s her face he sees every orgasm for the last nine months. Is she playing? Exploring? Tough, she’s on his turf now, she’s put herself up for auction, and by God she’s his for the night.
Jess is scared spit less. She’s going to suck off the man who may have killed, Aung, the college student she mentors who vanished three weeks earlier. When the wrong man, a masked stranger, wins the auction, she has no choice but to proceed. Horrified when she not only responds to the masked stranger, but climaxes, Jess flees.
Devil lets her go fully intending to reel her in. His way.

When a student she mentors disappears after visiting a bdsm club, Jess puts aside her fears and enters a world she doesn’t understand in order to find her missing friend. Never did she expect to find herself in front of the last man she wants to see…the Devil. In the third installment of Jianne Carlo’s The Hades Squad series, Jessica finds herself embroiled in danger that goes far beyond a missing student. Will she allow her fears to stop her from exploring a world she didn’t know she needed?
I love this series and I was not disappointed by this addition. Ms. Carlo gives us alpha males whose loyalty and honor is rarely in question and the man whose call sign is Devil in no exception. He has kept his distance from Jess because she is best friends with his mate’s wife. That can lead to nothing but trouble but he has been unable to think of anyone else; so maybe she means more than he thought. He learns just how much she means when she places herself square in the cross hairs of something that is unexpectedly dangerous. The twists and turns Ms. Carlo gives us in this tale were numerous. This story is action packed. The characters are fully developed and the emotions feel real and believable. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can’t wait to see what Ms. Carlo has in store for us next.
