Well, we all know how much I LOVED Halo Bound and now having read this shorter prequel which gives you a much deeper insight into the parents of Tough and Colt. I have to say, I love me some Redneck Apocalypse! It's almost addictive, and so good which means it's probably terribly bad for you and I just can't get enough!
Being inside Shannon's head is an emotional ride, she feels like she could literally burst from being full of emotions, all bubbling just under the surface! The paranoia is written well, the desperation to loose herself from the world by seeking out intimacy with anyone regardless of consequences felt painful, my heart hurt to feel her slowly self destructing. But when she is with Danny (and if they manage not to argue) he balances her, calms her, they are meant to be, a beautiful but unlikely coupling of a Preacher's son and hell raising Rock Star, it won't be any easy relationship but it will be worth the struggles.
And Danny, such a passionate but leashed man. A servant of God but MADE for Shannon, he must be, they are just so perfectly balanced in a fucked up kinda way, its not a glaringly obvious pairing by any stretch, and due to their history they both hold some guilt and hate towards each other but its not the strongest emotion between them by any stretch.
We get to know more about Tiffany here too, I really started to feel Tiffany's character towards the end of Halo Bound, I liked her a lot and I think what I have learned about her here will shed a bit more light on the aspects of her relationship with one of our Whitney boys, Colt.
Hell Bent, Book 2 is next on the TBR list, I cannot wait!
You got to pay to play...
At just twenty-two years old, Shannon Colter has everything she's ever wanted. She's an international rock star, her guitar playing is better than it's ever been, and she never has to worry about going hungry again.
But behind the scenes, Shannon's world is falling apart. Her bandmates hate her, the music she used to love is driving her insane, the only escape she can find from the noise is sex, and the messiest breakup of her pre-rock-star life, Danny Whitney, just blew into town.
To top it all off, the deal Shannon made with the devil just came due. Now the forces of Hell have been unleashed against her with one objective: Destroy.
Hell wants her, but he wants her more...
Danny Whitney is the quintessential good boy. He reads his Bible and prays. He works hard and gets good grades. He's just five weeks and one senior thesis from graduating seminary at the top of his class.
But there was always something about Shannon that drove Danny a little bit crazy. Something that made him want to sacrifice everything good, just for her. Even now, five years after she wrecked his heart, he would do anything to keep her safe.
