Something dark surrounds the town. A malevolence she has no hope of surviving.Will Trouble drag Remi into the dark pits of Hell? Or will she be the ultimate downfall of the devil himself?DISCLAIMER: Intended for audiences 18 years or older due to harsh language, sexual content, and sensitive/abusive subject matter. Please be advised this is a very dark read that may contain triggers for some. Read with caution.

Twenty three years ago Trouble, Emo, JW and Judge escaped hell when they were just children. The town of Sweet Haven, where they once lived, was a place where nightmares came true. Now, they have taken over the town renaming it Malus. Trouble, Emo, JW and Judge rule Malus with an iron fist and have their own set of rules to govern their town. Outsiders are not welcome as Malus holds a lot of secrets that could be dangerous if they ever get out.

Remi Stone is running away from a tragedy. Heavily pregnant, she is traveling to Colorado to get to her brother. But, her car has other plans and breaks down in the heat of Texas in a tiny little town called Malus. When she meets Trouble, the town’s doctor, there is an instant attraction and as they grow closer together she has a hard time wanting to leave even though Trouble makes it known she has to eventually go. If Remi ever finds out the secrets surrounding Malus it could lead to consequences, ones Trouble does not need or want.

Holy freakin hell! There are dark books and then there are DARK books. Alex Grayson has taken over the lead with the darkest, twisted and most f*cked up book I have read in a very long time. The contents of Trouble in Hell are very disturbing and uncomfortable to read through. Anything dealing with extreme child abuse really gets me angry. Grayson does NOT hold anything back and while most of the abuse is mostly told through flashbacks your heart will still break over what children of Sweet Haven have gone through.

I really loved seeing Remi and Trouble together and rooted for them the entire way through the story. I am so glad Grayson did not go the sweet and innocent route with Remi. Remi has a painful past and I think it makes her more of the right kind of woman that Trouble needs as she can understand what he has gone through and is able to accept him for who he is.

I found the plot to be intense and engaging and it really captured my attention all the way through, even if it did make me squirm in many parts. The text is gritty and descriptive and Grayson really made me feel like I wanted to be a part of Malus. On the upside, these four men are super hot especially Emo! I just can’t wait for his story!

Trouble in Hell is not for the faint of heart. The story is rich, vivid and very, very dark. I wholeheartedly enjoyed the first book in the Hell Night series and cannot wait to read more about these devilishly handsome men who rule Malus.
