Author: Amo Jones
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 20, 2016


They say there are defining points in your life – moments where you f**ked it all up, moments that make you its bitch, moments that shape you into the person you are.
The day I met Braxton Ward was one of my moments.
My name’s Melissa Hart, and I don’t think you’re ready for this story.

I go by a few names: Hella, Brax, 112, or, depending on whether I’ve been balls deep in you or not, C*nt. I don’t push the boundaries because in order to do so, one must have them. I’ve never had them. Being homeless at the not-so-tender age of fifteen morphed me into an emotionless shell, and when The Army recruited me, that shell turned into steel.
They say if fire is hot enough, it can melt steel; the hate that burns between Melissa Hart and me just might be hot enough. Shit doesn’t come easy for us. Enemies are expanded, secrets are revealed, and lives will be taken. Yeah, I’m Braxton “Hella” Ward, and you bet your f*cking ass that you ain’t ready for this story.

Hellraiser is my first book by Amo Jones and a great introduction to her style of writing. And yes I know it's part of a series, but I read out of order a lot if the blurb of a later book in a series catches my attention more than the first. As was the case with this series. But I am definitely going back to read One Hundred Thirty-Six Scars. Even though this was the second book in The Devil's Own series, I never got lost. I think for many they would want to read the first book before this one, but Amo did a good job at explaining some of the things that happened before these events so it was never confusing. 

I loved the intensity that was between Melissa and Hella and how their characters were written. It wasn't a enemies to lovers kind of attraction, it was a hate-love. One of those relationships that some people would say was unhealthy, but really they just don't understand that under all the hate you see on the outside, there's ten time more love on the inside. Both Melissa and Hella have hidden depths that you have to dig to find, and I promise you it will just make you love them more. 

I like dark books, but I think I've also become a little too used to some of the usual things that happen in them. So now I need some pretty messed up stuff to happen for me to consider a book actually dark and for it to please my black soul. And Hellraiser definitely had it. I'm really not sure how demented this author truly is to write this, but whatever is going on in her brain is working for her books. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this story and recommend it for any dark lovers like me. The connection between Melissa and Hella was very interesting and I think others will find themselves enthralled with their story just like I did.
