    “Started out great, then went down hill fast. I love the take-charge, arrogant alpha hero who absolutely cannot resist the heroine’s charms. He absolutely has to have her, no matter what. For me Jack was totally opsite of that. I like a strong heroine who knows what she wants and goes after it but this was just a big I'm sorry, but I can't stand it when she chases him like a lost puppy.Sometimes he left her hanging for three months!!! Why not a year or two?!In between nonsensical blatherings they have sex, which he possesses boundless expertise. Obviously.... Luckily, virginal Abi also becomes an orgasm machine, chucking them out all over the place. So much so that she overlooks Jakck's general bastardry and bends over nicely for a few beatings.And then the cliff ending wich make no sense at all for me....I have no idea what the author was hoping to achieve accept more nonsense material for a second book! After finishing the first book I will not read the next 2 as I just don't care what hapens next. Ohh and Jack...

    A deliciously dark trip down a sensual road full of turns and twists. You won’t be able to put this well layered book down. I loved Abby from the beginning. She’s an everyday heroine I really found myself invested in. Independent, intelligent, and real, I got it. She’s not perfect, in the way that none of us is, which made her relatable and believable. Finishing her last year of college, the last thing Abby expects to do is meet a man like Jack. Hell, none of us expects to meet a man like Jack. Though we might wish we could. The handsome wealthy man with a dark streak ensnares and fascinates her. A chance meeting turns to a life-saving situation, that I believe bonds them. Jack opens her up to her own sexuality, hidden wants, and provocations. But it’s no easy road. Jacks a man with a past that’s hardened his soul, and soured him toward anything more than sex and fun. He’s a layered, complex, sexy, infuriating man. Yes, all the great makings of a hero you can’t help but lose your heart to. Wait, did I say hero? Let’s say male lead. *laughs. You’re intrigued now, yes? But I don’t want to give too many thing away. I will say he’s a man with many secrets, walls, and issues. The fabulous thing about this book is that the minor characters are equally as interesting. You keep turning the pages to catch a glimpse of these spectral with their own treasure trove of issues, experiences, and secrets. I loved how fleshed out this was. This is one of those books you’ll find yourself thinking about long after you’ve read it. Their road to happiness is anything but smooth. None of the best romances are. The push and pull is real, and this is book one of three. So there’s no buttoned up ending with all ends tied. But it is intriguing, sexy, and thought provoking. If you’re looking to step deeper into the world of BDSM with your romance this is the perfect place to start. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s done tastefully and in a way I think even those not inclined toward Abby and Jacks’ appetites can appreciate.

    Abigail “Abi” is a simple 23 year old, just finishing school, trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life, and she is also a virgin. She’s not ashamed of it, she just hasn’t found the right guy she wants to be intimate with yet. One day out at a coffee shop she sees Jack Landon, one of the most successful, richest, unattainable bachelors. She’s so busy swooning that she trips in the street and almost gets hit by a bus and he ends up saving her. He invites her over for dinner along with many people from the press, and announces that they are dating, even though he never mentioned anything to Abi. She’s shocked by his revelation and at first is a little unsure of why a rich and powerful man wants to date her but after a while she decides to go ahead with it. Jack wants Abi, but first he wants her to fully submit to him. Abi is a little nervous about it but when she feels ready, Jack for some reason never fully goes all the way. Abi feels that she is in love and she is still unsure of why someone amazing like Jack would want to be with someone like her. Jack is by far from perfect though. Jack and his family have many secrets. Some that they go out of their way to make sure that no one will ever find out. Jack’s troubled past was actually pretty shocking. I thought it was a very good twist with his character and actually felt sorry for what he’s going through, and will have to go through for the rest of his life. It seems that characters like him always have “a dark past” but the little extra twist with him is something you don’t see too often and was unexpected and new. A minor issue is how fast the characters fall in love. They don’t really know each other very long but seem to fall in love quickly. If Abi went on a few more dates and they talked a little more than it would be more natural, but I know this is a love story so the characters do have to fall in love soon so minor nitpick. The ending will leave you shocked and craving for the next book!

    I received an advance copy of TDG from the author in exchange for an honest review.The latest release from erotica author (and talented artist) Rue Volley is not a typical erotica novel whatsoever. But I wouldn't expect anything else from Hot Ink Press!With your typical erotica, you usually get straight up sex right off the bat. Sexy girls and lusty guys abound. Well, you do get a very lusty man in Jack Landon. He's sexy, dashing and mysterious. But he's also got a lot of baggage that is deeper than the normal leading man carries. I enjoyed learning more about him as the book went on.Abigail I absolutely loved. She's a very relatable character: smart, sweet and honest. She knows what she wants and doesn't want. She willingly gives Jack control, but doesn't give up her sense of self.This book is about bondage, about giving up control, and Abigail has a lot to give, more than most other leading ladies ever do. The story shows what submissives who are just discovering life in the bondage scene go through, but Abigail's subdrop is different, because she is different. In fact, it takes more than half of the book for sex to actually happen.You, as a reader, don't miss it as much as you might think. This book proves that you don't need constant, repetitive sex to make it a great erotica novel. Everything in this book is erotic, from stitching up a wound to a simple kiss. You'll find yourself turned on by the littlest things.That's what great erotica writing is: the ability to turn the reader on with every single word. I love, love, love this book. I think Rue did a great job with the characters, the plot and the very essence of the story. BDSM is more than whips and chains, much more, and she really captured the emotions behind the scenes.New to erotica? A longtime fan of the genre? Read this book!

    Imagine Wuthering Heights mixed with the darker elements of Jane Eyre and explicitly explored kinky sex. Although, in many ways, this story is more about sensuality than sex and sensuality is very, very sexy. It's masterfully written. The pace is perfect. The character development intriguing. It is so much more than a hot read, but mark my words it is a hot read and at times it will leave you breathless. It doesn't matter whether you love or hate Jack, at times I felt both, he is a catalyst and Abigail is the butterfly.It held me like a lover's hand cupped gently under my chin, until the final moments, when the story slapped me hard across the face. I didn't see that coming.

    Rue Volley has done it again. This book is an amazing read. I really wish that we had the option for more than 5 stars. I had problems with putting it down to eat or sleep. Just a warning, make sure you have a change of panties, or a few changes. You will need them, I promise. I was so excited when I was offered a beta copy of this book. I can't wait for everyone else to be able to read it. This is the first book of the trilogy. I am already begging for the next book!Abigail Watson, or Abi as most people call her, is just your normal college girl. Well, she's 23 and getting ready to graduate, but she is a virgin. She wasn't into the party and dating scenes. She was there to bust her butt, graduate (which she does, with honors), and start her career with a great job. She lost her father when she was 17.I really love abi and connected with her. She's awesome.Her roommate, Avery, is hilarious and had me cracking up. All I will say is BANANA and "Vampire checklist". Once you read this awesome book, you'll understand.Abi thinks she knows exactly what she wants in life, the things I posted about above, but some of that changes after she meets Jack and embarrasses herself....BULLET - before he saves her from being hit by a bus. Who knew getting stitches could be so freaking hot!Jack Landon owns everything. He is very mysterious and hot. There is an instant attraction. You can tell he is into some heavy things. He thinks he is a monster and he wants Abi to see it. "Why, Abigail, does it hurt to hear the truth from me? To understand what really sets me free? I want to be treated as I deserve. For the animal that I am. I want you to submit to that part of me. Until you do, you will never know who I am, not fully."Abi changes, she wants to submit to him. And he wants to open up more to her, but he just can't. They don't have an easy, safe road to travel."If you want to fuck me like you hate me, then do it. Hurt me, cut me - take everything that I have to offer you and devour it. Devour every piece of me. I offer that to you, but don't, don't pretend that you don't know what I am."There are a few surprises in this book that I honestly didn't see coming. I had a few "oh shit" moments while reading as well. "Together we were fire, pure and red hot. Hopefully, it would never consume us."This is such a great read. One of the best I have read this year! My review does not do this book justice!

    The Devil's Gate is truly an amazing, all consuming read. The way Rue Volley writes, it sucks you in. She takes you into the world of these characters, that her brilliant mind made up. Do you believe in fate? For Abigail Watson it will take just one day to cement Jack Landon into her world, and her mind. Consuming her."I did love Jack, so much so that it had broken something inside of me. I loved a man who could never return that love. My doing—not his. Jack never led me astray, in fact, he shined a bright light down on me."- AbigailJack is a richie rich. His family owns everything. He has money, a lot of money. Abi is a collage student, just trying to make it to her final exam and graduate.The world Jake will introduce Abigail into, is nothing she ever dreamed of. Jack has a certain taste, but can this innocent girl enter Jack Landon's world?"Devour every piece of me. I offer that to you, but don’t, don’t pretend that you don’t know what I am.” - JackHe's lured her in. Her mind won't let her forget this complicated man. Her body won't let her forget him, but is it even possible for these two to be together? There is so much in their way, constant barriers.I devoured this book. The scenes were sexy, hot, fan yourself off hot. God, I wanted to push Abi. Go for it!!! Each and every character brings different things to this book, and there is this bit of mystery weaved into it. Secrets. Secrets that will shock you. By the end, I was pissed. I wanted to scream NO! I can't wait for the next book. I serious need it now. Rue Volley's mind is one amazing place, I would love to enter it, just for a minute. The world she brings us into is hypnotic, consuming, sexy and mysterious.

    5 PLUS!! This is a story you don't want to stay away from. The way the author has wrote this story can go in so many directions....But there is only one direction I would like to see it go. Slow and Kinky :)There's defiantly a Love/Hate relationship storm brewing in my mind! Even with the main character, Abigail. She chooses danger over safe, comfortless over comforting. The knowing with Sam over The unknowing with Jack. Jack is mysterious, adventurous and unpredictable. There's times I thought I had figured him out, then there's a twist in his personality making him no where to be found. I do like how Jack thinks!!Victoria, Jack's mom, is vicious from the beginning. There's no loving her! Jerod, Jack's brother, I'm still deciding! Rose, Jack's ex-wife, I just don't like her because to me she's the OTHER women! Maybe I can get to know her in Book 2. "Which I will be Reading!" Sam, the hopeless romantic. I just plain love him!Rue has made GREAT Beginning to a story I know I will truly enjoy :)

    my gods.Rue Volley manages to leave you hating her and begging for more in the same breath.Much like I imagine her (sexy as hell) male lead can and will do to Abby many times throughout this trilogy.the characters are much more in-depth than other erotic novels. Volley gives little glimpses which make Abigail especially seem to be just like one of my friends... or me. :)Even the side characters seem very solid, not to mention hilariously involved in their friends lives, I found myself looking forward to having the roommate return from a trip, just to see what she would have to say about a plot development,though this book has a bdsm tag, it is very light. not something I would be embaressed to discus with anyone. I've gotten sick of bdsm novels that are nothing more than physical chains and whips. there tends to be an actual relationship, which rue has managed to portray amazingly.if you have any interest in bdsm, sex, or just a damned good read, look no further.

    This needs to be a Movie!!I received an e-copy of The Devil's Gate from Miss Volley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Rue Volley!!OMG! Miss Volley has created a world like no other. I Love this sensually erotic and sexilicious story of self discovery.Very well written, fast paced, and hard to put down, with just the right amount of twisted mystery to keep one glued in their seat until the end, unless family obligations tear them away. I can tell that Miss Volley has invested herself into the character development and Hawt Dayum scenes that will leave you breathless.I highly recommend this series to those 18+ who like erotic reads.

    Rue Volley is a force of nature. Her writing style has a way of cutting straight to the chase without mincing any words. She literally slaps you in the face with the story. I am sure that The Devil's Gate will be compared to 50 Shades of Grey and in some ways, that is justified. But where 50 Shades gave us a cotton candy version of submission and domination, Rue delivers a far more believable take on this subject and with far more likeable characters. Bravo, Rue.

    This book made me ranty. Like, really ranty. There were just too many TSTL moments. So here is my warning, this review will be full of ranty spoilers, read at your own risk. I will hide the spoilery parts with a spoiler tag on Goodreads so no one comes across it by accident.Let's start with the blurb, the "brush with death" was so anti-climactic as to be a non-issue. But this paves the way for Abigail, the uber-naive 23 y/o virgin to come into closer contact with Jack, the dark and depraved billionaire. A little reminiscent of FSOG here. Honestly it was the heroine that I had such an issue with - she was just such a doormat! And stupidly naive and weak. Let's look at some of her stupidly stellar moments here: (view spoiler)[ 1. She has dinner with Jack and he hints that he likes pain with his pleasure. This opens up such a window to the virgin's soul that for the next 3 weeks she can't eat and her school work suffers.2. She accompanies him to a charity auction hosted by his family where his mother is wearing a nearly-sheer dress. She hears moans coming from behind curtains. Then gets the bright idea that she will volunteer herself to be bid on - not realizing this is a sex slave auction!3. She gets hit in the head with a door and gets a concussion. The doctor tells her that a side effect of a concussion is that she may turn into a horny beast. Good lord, I have had 8 concussions and never once I have ever been told about or got that side effect! (hide spoiler)]Then we have Jack, the illusive rich boy. He really came off as a huge douche. They would be together then all of a sudden he would turn cold and distant and she wouldn't hear from him for weeks or months, which necessitates Abigail chasing after him like a sad puppy. Between him, his whack job of a family, and his (view spoiler)[need to taste blood before he could get off, (hide spoiler)] I just couldn't get behind Jack as a hero. Nothing about the relationship felt genuine. Plus there was this weird three-way instalove with Abigail to Jack and Sam to Abigail, that just didn't make sense. (view spoiler)[I mean Sam has not seen Abigail for years, since high school, but he is in love with her? (hide spoiler)] I can usually tolerate instalove but it was too extreme in these situations.So for me, the most interesting aspect of the book was all of the batshit crazy people. First we have Rose, who has been in a mental hospital for years, (view spoiler)[ but then she shows up at the end like: "SURPRISE! Your mom got me miracle meds and I am all fixed now and I love you and you love me and we can live together all happy ever after!" (hide spoiler)] But by far the most interesting character was Jack's dad, (view spoiler)[who is so bananas they fake his death and stow him in a penthouse mental ward, (hide spoiler)] diagnosed with borderline schizophrenia mixed with some bi-polar and manic depressive states. And (view spoiler)[like father like son, Jack has already been diagnosed with the same issue and is on medication for it. (hide spoiler)]The cliffhanger combined with the crazy people and demented family has piqued my interest enough that I will read (or at least skim) the next book to find out what happens. I just hope Abigail matures and stops being such a doormat.I received an free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 2 stars / 4 flames.

    * I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. *Every time I pick up a book by author Rue Volley I feel like I am transported to another place - this book is no exception. She is an amazing writer no matter what the genre, and can adapt to any story with an ease that continues to amaze me. When I first started the book, my first thought was that Abigail could NEVER keep up with Jack...I mean come on, he is rich, experienced and so not into "vanilla" sex....but then they meet in a dark theater and all of my previous thoughts went right out the window. Abigail can and will be able to handle Jack, will Jack be able to handle her?!?!The characters are so much fun to read about - author Rue Volley is a master at secrets, twisted, curving roads and at keeping readers on the very edge of their seats wondering what may happen next. There were times throughout the story that I was literally biting my nails, shaking my legs in anticipation and other times when I was out and out fanning myself to calm down. She is a master at weaving the story to be tight, complex and at the same time filled with sexual tension and innuendos - and the reader soaks it all up and loves it! This is a must read for any and all readers - it has a little bit of everything thrown into it. I am on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen now that Rose has made a reappearance! I hope that book 2 comes out sooner rather than later! I NEED to know!! Make sure you add this book to your TBR list and add it soon, as it should NOT be put off! This is an amazing story that will leave the reader panting for more! ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.

    *I was provided a copy by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.Rue Volley smacks it out of the park AGAIN!!! Oh I mean knocks it out of the park! Lol!! The Devil's Gate is ambrosia for your senses and grabs your attention from the very beginning. Don't sleep or you will miss it!!Abigail Watson is innocent, pure and super clumsy!! She has dedicated herself to her graduate school education and left nothing in between. BUT Leave it to Jack Landon to save her every time she falls or falters and to put something (ahem) between then.Now for hardcover EROTICA fans, don't expect full throttle here as Rue Volley EASES you into a blissful state. WHEN SHE DOES MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A FAN OR YOU WILL FAINT. The plot is intricate and gets tricky towards the end, but it's captivating.The characters come alive when they are together and brings vitality to the story. You want to love Jack, smack some sense into Abi, hug Sam and crack up with Avery. Each one of the secondary characters brought a special element to the table. Even ruthless Jarod.It's. Wickedly. Fascinating!! New and Old fans of Rue Volley will succumb to the power of EROTIC BLISS! I tip my Nerd Girl hat to you!*This review was done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for my honest opinion and review.You don’t know Jack……..Well, I must say that by the time you are finished with this sexy, sultry, and seductive story, you will know him really well. Rue Volley has outdone herself again, only this time I wonder how she will top this one. It’s quite the ride to remember with a shocking ending that you won’t wanna miss. It will make the women wish they had and the men wanna be Jack. It’s by far my favorite story yet to date with this author. Highly recommended.What are you waiting for, introduce yourself to Jack, I dare you.CAUTION: READERS DISCRETION ADVISED

    I loved the plot and sensuality of The Devil's Gate. Rue has created a heroine who is a mixture of relatability, sexiness, and awkward that I'm in awe of. Jack...oh let me describe Jack. He's dark and twisted and sexy. The erotic elements of the novel are well written and in a lot of ways, exotic. You'll never look at ice the same again. :)I'm still processing exactly how I feel after reading book one in the Devil's Gate trilogy. I love Rue's writing and hate her for leaving me wanting more at the same time. I can't wait for book two.

    *** I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.There is something about a broken man you just want to fix. This story had me transfixed on how to help Jack! In the beginning of the book, I thought that clumsy, easily flustered Abby was going to be your soft, give in to everything kind of woman with Jack leading and teaching her as you go along. As I listened, I was pleasantly surprised by her intuitiveness and strength. Jack, the in control,alpha male has so many layers to his personality, you can't help but fall in love with him. Watching this relationship unfold, and meeting the supporting cast kept me captivated. Jack's family, especially his mother, you love to hate, but also feel that compassion for her when you learn of her past. Jarod you want to shake, and Peter..well, you have to read the book to see about Peter.The narration of this book by Sierra Kline was perfect. She has great flow, a warm rich voice and differentiates between her characters so you know exactly who is speaking. I hope she continues the series.I cannot wait for book 2...the cliffhanger does exactly what it's meant to...scramble for that next book!

    Abigail (Abi) Cox and Jack Landon knew nothing of each other before chance brought the together. A young, shy, sexually innocent college student learns to play a dark and sensual game with a man who, on the surface, appears to have everything. Throughout this journey, both Abigail and Jack discover there is more to a relationship then romance and sex.Abi wants to love and wants to experience all the joys of intimacy that her friends have described to her, but she finds with Jack that the unknown is intoxicating and has to really think about what it is they are doing together.Jack on the other hand feels he cannot love but feels the monster he perceives himself to be leaving a little more each day he spends with Abi. Jack wants to break away from the perceptions of his father and family but just when you think he is free, he is sucked back in.Rue Volley writes in a way that sucks you, a page turner that makes you want to know each and every character. Immediately after finishing Devil's Gate I had to get a copy of Devil's Fire, book 2 of the trilogy. Rue will keep you engaged and wanting more; just like Jack does with Abi ;)

    Abigail Watson is smart, beautiful and strong. She is finishing up her final year in college and has big plans for her future. To date, she's put her personal life on hold putting her goals and future first. That all changes with a chance encounter and a brush with death.Jack Landon is in control of his business and his life, or so he thinks. After saving the beautiful and clumsy Abigail he can't stay away from her. The attraction is undeniable. He is the dark and she is pure light. Can she diminish the shadows on his soul?This book had me feeling every emotion as the characters were experiencing them. Rue Volley definitely has a way with words and tells a story that will stay with you long after the last page. I highly recommend this book and the author too. Do yourself a favor and one-click this book and book 2 The Devils Fire at the same time as there's a huge cliffy in this book.Rue Volley is definitely an author that I'll be following closely.

    I Love love LOVED The Devil's Gate. I bought this on release day and hesitated over reading it. Not because I doubted the author - exactly the opposite - I KNEW that Rue Volley would somehow lure me in, make me love the characters, the setting, the impossibility of the relationship. I knew that I would hope for that happy ever after, that I would laugh loudly, weep softly and yell my exclamations out into the silence of my room. Then after that - after my heart was firmly in her hands - she would destroy me. I literally screamed at the end of this book and No, that is not giving anything away because you want to know why I screamed...in fact you need to know. Beautifully written, engaging and silkily seductive this is a highly recommended read from me. Now I am off to hover over Rue's author page and stalk her until the next book is released.Read it. Don't miss out.
