Review – Fury on Fire (Devil’s Rock #3) by Sophie Jordan

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.

I’m really torn about how to review this book. So I’m gonna go with the best form, honesty. Although I enjoyed reading this installment, I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t mention that I’m also pretty disappointed in it. I feel like I’ve been waiting this entire series to get my hands on North, and it just fell short for me.

North is the brother of Knox from the first installment. The pretty boy. The one who got left in jail while his brother and Reid escaped the hell that was the Rock. Finally free and living under the radar for the past two years, his new neighbor is turning out to be a handful. After trying to avoid her for weeks, it’s apparent that she’s not going anywhere and coming face to face is inevitable. And when that meeting finally happens, the chemistry is off the hook.

Faith is the Sheriff’s sister. She’s also the daughter of the former Sheriff. The one who arrested North and Knox all those years ago. Living under her family’s protection all of these years has been too much to handle, so she finally steps up to the plate and purchases her own home. Little did she know that her new neighbor (who she shares a wall with) likes to make women scream. All. Night. Long. After many attempts at trying to speak with him (while being avoided), and a peeping tom moment resulting in a form of texting between the two, they finally meet face to face. Chemistry? Oh ya. But is it a good idea to mess around with a former convict, knowing your law enforcement family will disapprove?

After reading the first two installments and enjoying a little criminal suspense in each, this didn’t have any “suspense” and left too many wholes in the story line for me. The anticipation of the two of them finally meeting was nice and well done. But then it’s like the book needed to end and so it did. We get the HEA for the two of them, but no answers as to Faith’s family issues with North. Then I find out that the next installment stars Faith’s brother. So maybe that part of the story will continue in the next one? But then the Epilogue throws us a year in to the future. Argh…just frustrating I guess…
