Review
  • Briar Davis doesn’t care what her sister,Laurel, says; she isn’t crazy. If Briar’s boss, Dr. Walker, is willing to volunteer his time at the Devil’s Rock Penitentiary, the least Briar can do is accompany him as his nurse. After all, it isn’t like the convicts are running loose. Briar and Dr. Walker will be locked away in the prison’s infirmary, surrounded by guards, and protected by every safety precaution available. However, when Knox Callaghan is escorted into the infirmary to be treated after a fight, Briar begins to think all of the safety measures in the world might not be enough to keep her from falling for him. Jordan (Tease, 2014) starts her new Devil’s Rock series off with a bang. The incendiary sexual chemistry between tougher-than-she-looks Briar and bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold Knox is hot enough to singe readers’ fingers, and the fast-paced plot guarantees they will finish this edgy romance in one sitting. -- Charles, John (Reviewed 3/15/2016) (Booklist, vol 112, number 14, p32)
  • In Jordon's serviceable and steamy contemporary romance, a nurse and a convicted killer make an unlikely connection thanks to a series of convenient coincidences. Nurse Briar Davis volunteers to accompany her boss, Dr. Walker, on rounds at Devil's Rock Penitentiary. Then, as if fate feels compelled to fulfill Briar's sister's warning about the dangers a single woman might face among felons, prisoners take over the prison's Health Services Unit. She and Walker are in mortal danger. Knox Callaghan—who maintains that he's no murderer, despite the charge that landed him in Devil's Rock—steps in, saves the day, and earns himself an early parole. After Knox's release, he just happens to meet Briar at a store near her apartment and she invites him up to share a carton of ice cream. The rest goes as expected. Jordon spins a good yarn, but this time it's impossible to overlook all the happenstance that leads to the happy ending. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Associates. (Apr.)
