What happens when an innocent is sent to the dark side?
Anarchy is the new leader of hell. He doesn’t believe a young new arrival, Josh, can be a cold-blooded killer. He intends to find out why Josh killed two men and if he deserves the tortures of hell or the peace of heaven. If Josh has to be chained, naked and about to burst from pleasure to tell the truth, well then so be it.
Be Warned: m/m sex, flogging, bondage
Meet Anarchy. He’s Hell’s resident bad boy and ruler of all sinners (woo-hoo!) He even comes with a set of horns that protrude from his forehead, a shock of firey hair, and an attitude. If a person committed absolutely vile acts while living and descends to the underworld, they can expect an after death that is by no means sunflowers and rainbows. They might meet Baby, a two-headed dragon who likes to pork things with his big wang. Oooo, that would be fun. But if Anarchy finds that he has a soft spot for a troubled soul, he or she could end up being his slave, and having it somewhat easier.
This is what happens when his Highness of Hell, meets tender, black-haired and blue-eyed, Josh, a sexy dude, who killed two people and was stabbed to death in return. And although, Joshie-Poo won’t say why he killed two guys, Anarchy somehow doesn’t believe the sexy thing could be a vile killer. So, he orders Josh to be his slave. The rest makes for a very hot, short read.
I really enjoyed this very short story, and many readers will too. Anarchy has a wicked sense of humor, especially for being the ruler of Hell, and gasp! he is even sort of a romantic (who knew Satan had a soft side?) How he treats Josh and how Josh responds to him is, well, smoking! (pun intended). Josh, is a sweetheart, somewhat timid and reserved, yet he takes what Anarchy gives him. And when the reader finds out why he committed murder, it makes one wonder, and Anarchy too, if the laddie deserves to even be in Hell.
This is a wonderful short love story. The sex is just kinky enough and hard enough not to be too hardcore. And the plot is fast, fun , and wraps up very nicely.
Kudos to the author for keeping me amused and entertained. Highly recommended.
