I really thought I wasn't going to get to read this book which is book two in this series. But to my surprise I did and have to say that I like this book very much. It a different type of book that I usually read. Bethany is trapped in Hades by Jake who really does seem to have true feelings for her. She can't and won't give up hope that Xavier, Gabriel and Ivy will come to her rescue. Even when she is summoned by Lucifer, she never gives up hope. I am looking forward to the next book, which is the final book in this series.

Wow, alrighty! Bethany, through trickery and deceit, is kidnapped from her home in Venus Cove, away from the love of her life Xavier and her family, and taken to Hades. By none other than the demon who has caused her the most pain and anguish in the past- Jake. Jiminy Christmas, goodness golly goshabees. The tension in the book was fairly high through the majority of this book as Bethany struggles through the misery surrounding her and as Xavier begins to lose himself to the despair and guilt. The trick for Bethany's contact with her family was clever, though I felt like it was slightly over-used. Jake also seemed different. More comfortable and finally 'at home', he seemed more in control, more condescending, but also more vulnerable with his feelings with Beth. He wasn't nearly as violent it appeared, and the theme of spurned unrequited love seemed much stronger than the last book. Honestly, to me Jake wasn't as great of a villain in this book after the initial kidnapping (which was terrible and horrible and captivating). A good book, and a good series.

Sooo good!!!! Even better than the first one in the trilogy. You know things are going to get interesting when an angel is taken into hades. I loved the new friends Beth makes, Tucker and Hannah. They were written beautifully and showed that not all people in hades were evil. Beth shows how brave she really is in this book. Even though Jake is evil he showed a side to himself that I didn't know existed. The author described the setting and characters extremely well. I loved this book!!!!!!!!!

This book picks up right where it left off. Beth and Xavier are happy to be together, Ivy is still learning the ropes of human life, and Gabriel is still cool and collected. Life is pretty good for the angels, but happiness rarely lasts forever. Not long into the book, Beth is captured by Jake, a fallen angel, and taken to Hell aka Hades. Jake admits to wanting Beth from afar, that she makes him feel something more. Beth does not take kindly to this, she responds by fighting the whole way. She also meets quite a few interesting characters, from a woman who sold her soul to save a friend to a previously selfish girl who gives up her chance at freedom to save Beth from the literal Hounds of Hell.

Beth gets in plenty of trouble in Hades, one would imagine an angel wouldn't be well-behaved in that place. Jake actually saves her multiple times, her friends try to keep her out of trouble and provide her with some comfort. Beth's good intentions get her into trouble in Hades, one time too many. They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions...how true that saying is in this book.
