Publisher's Summary

USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell’s Wicked Wallflowers series burns hot as two rivals meet in the flesh and feel the heat...

Adair Thorne has just watched his gaming-hell dream disappear into a blaze of fire and ash, and he’s certain that his competitors, the Killorans, are behind it. His fury and passion burn even hotter when he meets Cleopatra Killoran, a tart-mouthed vixen who mocks him at every turn. If she were anyone else but the enemy, she’d ignite a desire in him that would be impossible to control.

No one can make Cleopatra do anything. That said, she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her siblings - even if that means being sponsored by their rivals for a season in order to land a noble husband. But she will not allow her head to be turned by the infuriating and darkly handsome Adair Thorne.

There’s only one thing that threatens the rules of the game: Cleopatra’s secret. It could unravel the families’ tenuous truce and shatter the unpredictably sinful romance mounting between the hellion…and a scoundrel who could pass for the devil himself.

A BIT SLOW!!

The Hellion is the uniting of the Black family owners of the Hell an Sin Gaming Hell and the Killoran family of the Devils Den Gaming Hell. Two rival gangs that hate each other are untied in a cause to make the Killoran's expectable in the eyes of the Ton. The Black family has already made this transition so to make a peaceful truce they will help the Killoran's. They will bring out Cleopatra Killoran and help her find a proper Lord to marry. Oh but not so fast Adair Thorn who is brother to Ryker Black and runs the Hell and Sin club might have a different opinion.

The story moves very slow. The hatred of Cleo and Adair have toward each other goes on far to long. There love story is not believable!! It just takes too long for the couple to become a loving couple. Sorry this is not one of Christi Caldwell's best works. It needs more sexual spice and more companionship or love adventures between Adair and Cleo.

Pretty good

I read a lot of romance this was okay. I wish there was more interactions between the H and h. Not enough action or excitement.

Keeps you wanting more!

If you haven't read the Sinful Brides Series first I highly recommend it. Not only will you fall in love with this family. You will be lost in most of the back story. As usual I love the relationship between the brothers and the way they interact and look out for each other. Finding out about Cleopatra and Adairs past will tear at your heart and will keep you on the edge till the end.
The book leaves you with more questions than answers and eagerly waiting for the next installment!
Tim Campbell performance allows you to 'see' each character clearly! Very few narrators can pull off that many voices female and male. Meanwhile you clearly know who's talking even before it's mentioned! Amazing job to both!

Lame story line. Weak characters. Narrator awful.

Very hard to finish. Immature herro and heroin. Plot was weak and predictable to the very end

Riveting

Really enjoyed my first Christi Caldwell book. Listened to it in one day! Loved, loved, loved the characters, and the narrator did a great job with the cockney accents. Already downloaded Book 2. Highly recommended!
