I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When I first saw this second book in the series, I was very excited. I loved Arrow in the first book. I loved his friendship with Faye. He may have been callous with Mary, but they had an understanding. Mary loved him enough to understand what he needed. It was too bad that she died like that, but every man usually has one big regret that makes them value the woman they end up with all the more.

Needless to say, I loved the first book. I loved Faye and Dex together and individually. With Arrow’s Hell, I still loved the book but not as much as I did the previous one. Arrow’s character was consistent. It was the heroine that I had a hard time liking. I don’t know why. Anna is a good girl who lived outside of the MC world, so it should be easy to understand why she had a hard time adjusting. However, I can’t help but compare her to Faye who also wasn’t from the MC world, but she adapted well.

Another thing about Anna I didn’t like was the fact that she started out not liking Faye. I mean, I get that she’s jealous with Faye’s relationship to Anna’s brother and Arrow too. However, putting the blame on the other woman just didn’t feel right to me. That kind of resentment usually happens to female antagonists and to know that Anna felt that way was a bit unheroine-like for me. She may have changed her mind later on, but the damage to my perception of her was already done.

I would still definitely recommend Arrow’s Hell because the author’s way of telling a story is compelling and entertaining at the same time. I may not have loved it as much ad I expected, but I still loved it nonetheless. All ingredients for a good MC romance novel is here. You will be in for an exciting ride the moment you turn the first page.
