From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gena Showalter comes a new story in her Lords of the Underworld series…
For centuries, Galen the Treacherous has been the most hated immortal in the Underworld. With good reason! This bad boy of bad boys has lied, stolen, cheated and killed with abandon. Possessed by the demons of Jealousy and False Hope, he has always lived for a single purpose: destroy everything.
Then he met her.
Former demon turned human femme fatale — Legion Honey — sought to kill Galen, but ended up parting with her virginity instead. Afraid of their sizzling connection, she ran away…and ended up trapped in hell, tortured and abused in the worst of ways. Now she’s free, and a shell of herself, afraid of her own shadow.
Galen’s hunger for Legion has only grown. Now the warrior with nothing to lose must help her rekindle the fire that once burned inside her. But as desires blaze white-hot, will Legion run again? Or will the unlikely pair succumb to love at long last?

My Review:
So I'm not going to start this review out with a long drawn out ramble like I usually do. Ok so maybe that's a lie (LOL). I will say this to start with I mentioned it in my last review for Mrs. Showalter, but she is one of a couple of Paranormal authors that will read over and over and over again. Now on with my review. 
This book had me hooked from the start to finish. And Galen's letters had me rolling at the beginning of the book. 
I loved Galen right from the start. As I just said above he wrote some letters at the beginning that had me cracking up. Galen's a man that has a lot to make up for to his friends and to his daughter Gwen. I thought he was sweet, kind, caring, and protective. You could tell how much Galen cared about his friends and family. 
I really liked Legion, aka Leila. She's a woman, demon who has been through literal h*ll and back again. I thought that she was sweet, caring, kind, and loved her friends. I will say all the names she went through kind of got on my nerves. But I did really enjoy her. 
I really enjoyed this story and as I mentioned above this book captured my attention from start to finish. This book had action and smexiness. I also loved seeing appearences from some all the other Lords and Goddess. 
I'm giving this book 4.5 Stars out of 5!!!
