Series or Standalone: Devil’s Den #2
Perfect for readers of Abbi Glines, Seduction returns to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where hearts can’t hide when the chemistry is right.
The night Marisela Gonzalez rides up to the Devil’s Den on her motorcycle, running from trouble and looking for her sister, she finds more than a place to hide out and work her red-hot body. She meets a guy brave enough to stand by a tough, terrified nineteen-year-old girl who’s been in the wrong place with the wrong jerk one too many times. And he’s ready to show Marisela how a real man treats the woman he desires.
An ex-cop taking over as the club’s head of security, Craig Hanson can handle anything—except the urgent need he suddenly feels to hold Marisela tight. Commitment has never been his thing, but all that changes when Craig finds something too real to deny between them. Sensual and vulnerable, Marisela’s got a scary past. And when it comes knocking, Craig goes all in to protect her—because seduction is the ultimate game changer.
Since we first met Marisela in Surrender, two years have past. Now she’s nineteen and running from her past. When she goes to the Devil’s Den to find her sister, Marisela runs into “asshole Craig” who she’s had a crush on ever since she was seventeen. Craig used to be in love with Marisela’s sister, Robin, which makes it hard for Marisela to decide if Craig really likes her or not. She just got out of an abusive relationship and is running from her ex.
The abusive relationship that Marisela just got out of made me wonder if Craig was right for her because of how dominating he is. I think there should have been a little more hesitation from her in regards to that but I still enjoyed the book. I love the writing, but I feel like the end of this book was too predictable because it was similar to what happened at the end of Surrender. Overall though, I had a hard time putting the book down and can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
