All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan…Blog Tour Stop & Review

ACU Banner


Some men come with a built-in warning label. Knox Callaghan is one of them. Danger radiates from every lean, muscled inch of him, and his deep blue eyes seem to see right through to Briar Davis’s most secret fantasies. But there’s one major problem: Briar is a nurse volunteering at the local prison, and Knox is an inmate who should be off-limits in every way.

Knox feels it too—a shocking animal magnetism that drives him to risk his own life to protect Briar’s. Paroled at last, he tries to resist her. She’s too innocent, too sweet, and she has no idea what Knox is capable of. But a single touch can lead to a kiss—and a taste . . . until the only crime is denying what feels so right . . .


My review:

All Chained Up is the first book in author Sophie Jordan’s Devil’s Rock series.  From the cover alone I was excited to read this book and it was a great read filled with heat, emotion, and action.  I loved it.

From the moment they met, Knox and Briar’s relationship was complicated.  He was a prisoner in the jail she was working in and even though she knew he was completely of limits and wouldn’t dream of acting on this unexpected and taboo attraction she felt for him, she couldn’t help herself from wondering what it would be like if they had met under different circumstances. Sure he was gruff, cold, and obviously dangerous, but there was something under his hard exterior that called to her…almost a kindness.  That kindness would show itself when Briar found herself in a life or death situation and Knox goes from inmate to hero.  That act gets him paroled and now, all those “what-ifs” become possibilities.  Would she ever see him again?  The better question is, what would she do if she did…

I love when an author has the ability to make me fall in love with a character who hardly even speaks for the first few chapters.  Know was one of those characters.  Ms. Jordan wrote him in such an amazing light and even though he clearly had done something bad in his past, I wanted redemption for him.  I wanted to know there was a heart in there somewhere.  Oh, and there is.  It takes him a little while to let it show but when he did, it was awesome.  I loved him and Briar together.  Talk about two opposites attracting!  But despite their differences, they meshed so well together and the heat and attraction between them is intense and smoking hot.  I will certainly never look at Cherry Garcia ice cream the same way again 😉

I am so excited to see where this series goes.  Ms. Jordan sets up for one helluva story in the next installment and I’m dying to know how it all plays out.

Thank you, Ms. Jordan, for an amazing read!

Sophie JordanSophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.

A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as i
nteresting as literature – teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.

In less than three years, her firstbook, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller’s List.
