#Blogtober (Day 23) – Book Review – Bittersweet Hell (Hell Night #2) by Alex Grayson

Hey lovely readers!

Here’s a book review for you! Again, this book and series has triggers for child sexual assault and abuse.

“As the Sheriff of Malus, Texas, JW takes his oath to protect its citizens very seriously. Born from an ugly past, he swears no child, woman, or man will ever endure what he and his brothers have. As he seeks retribution of the ones who have wronged him, his past and his present finally collide. Secrets are laid open. Ones that are so heinous, they’ll rock the very foundation of JW’s life.

When Eden blazes into town, hot with her own threatening troubles baring down on her, JW steps in as her protector. It’s not only his duty, but a need he can’t ignore. The chemistry between the two is instant and all too tempting. Giving in was easy, but the consequences were high.

JW never knew the disturbing destruction that would rain down on Malus by getting involved with the red-headed gypsy. Danger lurks just around the corner–it’s dark, terrifying, and malicious. JW is bitter because of his gruesome past. Eden is sweet despite hers. Together, will they create a beautiful future, or will it all end in bitter sweet hell?”

Book number two in the Hell Night Series was just as mind blowing as the first. Each book focuses on one of the brothers and now it’s JW’s turn. We learn about his experiences on Hell night and meet the woman who steals his heart.

JW was horrifically abused as a child. But he and his brothers have moved on, made something good out of the town they grew up in. Then Eden comes crashing into his life and turns it upside down. She’s running from someone who hurt her and because the town of Malus protects those who’ve been abused, JW convinces her to stay.

Eden is such a tough character. She sees a man murder a woman and now he’s after her. But she’s determined to keep living her life. So when JW suggests a relationship while she’s in Malus, she agrees. All the while they’re trying to find the man who’s after Eden. The man who’s now terrorizing the town of Malus. Add to that JW has finally tracked down those who abused him as a child and he wants revenge.

He uncovers a disturbing secret about his family and when he tracks them down he finds something even more terrible. Meanwhile he’s falling in love with Eden and now he has to share the details of his horrible past. Then the life of someone they care for is taken and all bets are off. He and his brothers won’t stop until the man who hurt Eden is taken down.

This story was dark, gritty, and full of twists and turns. But it’s also a love story about two people who can’t let their guards down. I love the family dynamics in this series, the feeling of acceptance, and the understanding of the need for revenge.

Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
