Did you ever read Avoiding Hell’s Gate by Joyee Flynn? I know I did! Well, on April 30, 2014, Flynn Eire (Joyee) re-released the revised and re-edited version of the book.
Stryker Magnus is born into a life no one would ever ask for, pray not to have even. But working for Hell has its perks, such as immortality, and Stryker’s far from evil. He’s really just the delivery man who hates his job.
Rafe Damas lives a lonely life, ignored by his only remaining family—his father. When Stryker and his brothers walk into his life, he’s in shock to learn the hounds of Hell are real… And they are there for him.
But when Stryker goes from trying to take his soul to Hell to protecting him, Rafe starts to fall hard for the man. How could he not for the man who rescued him and is helping him to see all that he’s missed in life.
When he realizes Stryker has a jealous temper and there’s much more going on than Rafe was told, he starts to wonder if he made the right decision to trust Stryker. Even the chance for love—no matter how difficult it may be—has to be better than ending up in Hell, right?
One night a guy and a bunch of big dogs appear out of nowhere and then you proceed to learn how much of an ass your dad really is. Oh, and by the way, this guy is a Hound of Hell and I am his mate. This is Rafe.
You get an assignment from your boss to collect a soul only to find out this soul is clean. When this guy senses you and and speaks, you hear his voice and realize that he is your mate. You will now do anything to keep him safe. This is Stryker.
I love how big bad alphas, like Stryker, turn to mush when they find their mate. They will do anything and everything their mate needs and wants. Stryker becomes irrational and overbearing, and that does turn me on. I can’t help it. I know why he is like that and that just make it hotter. I don’t want to spoil any more of the plot than what the blurb already states, so you will just have to go buy and read the book for more.
It doesn’t matter what name this author uses, she is a wonderful storyteller and I enjoy everything she writes. I give this book 4 Hearts.
On May 22, 2014, the much anticipated (more liked begged and pleaded for) second book in the Hounds of Hell Series, Switching Teams, will release. As of this post, I am about to read it and will post my review of same on that day. I do know that Book 3 in the series will be released shortly after Book 2, and that Book 4 is still in WIP.
