I thought the light would bring redemption.


But it only brought the Devil to my doorstep.

My demons are breaking through, and the reaper is moving closer.

My weakness has been exposed, and there’s only one person who can calm this hell…


I broke a promise to myself, and now I’m paying for it.

I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be a part of th

This part of the story was so much better than the first. It was much more cohesive and lot easier to follow. I finally didn’t feel like I walked into the middle of the plot. I got to see many different sides of the characters I have come to care about and I’m so excited for the next installment to see just where the author is going to take us next.

Tess has been taking a dip back into her past and we finally get the story behind what happened to her. The truth behind her pain was quite devastati

So "Demons" starts where "Trigger" left us and Tess is back living at her mother's establishment to find answers after what she uncovered before she ran out on The MC and Trigger.
Though who can blame the girl for running.
Even thinking that Trigger no longer wants her she is in protection mode, wanting to shield her new adopted family from harm.
But it's not long that before Trigger is hot on her heels to drag her back home where she belongs.

Why leave me hanging like this?

Demons is the second book of the Devil’s Reach series. You have to read them in order.

I was kind of confused with this one only because there was a HUGE warning that the first book ends with a cliffy. I usually don’t care to know about that nor do I care for cliffys. I take them or leave them, it doesn’t bother me.

What I don’t care for is that the first book has all these HUGE warnings and the second book didn’t. This is a serial book. Had I known that I would have gone into Demons

Ahhhhh!!!!! Wow! Book two is so good! I have a girl crush on Tess and Minnie. Lol! But Trigger is hotness on a stick. I need book three!! The suspense is going to kill me. So much detail in this story. I was swimming in the story and love every word. I am feeling these characters in my heart. I need to crawl in the Authors head and watch her work her magic. Absolutely love this trilogy.

WTF? I'm swinging from cliffy to cliffy like Tarzan in the jungle and I want to beat my chest and throw my kindle. But I would never actually do that because I don't want to miss a single word of this hair-raising, nail-biting, mind-bending story. I've just recently been introduced to the work of J.L. Drake, but I am loving her writing so much that I can guarantee that she has a fan for life. She's blowing my mind with her storytelling and

Demons is the second book in the Devil’s Reach series, and boy do I need book three. Now. Like, right this second now. Why isn’t it released yet? Why do I start books before the series is finished? Someone keep me updated on the progress of book three. You can clearly see how badly I need book three.

When I finished Trigger, the first book in the series, I was overly eager to dive into this second book. Trigger is, without a doubt, one of the best motorcycle club romances I have ever read – hence

Holy hell, Jodi never ceases to amaze me. Her books trap you and pull you into the pages. I have loved every book that I've read by her, and I hope to be enjoying them for years to come. I'm finding it hard to get a great MC book lately, but I can always count on Jodi to ho above and beyond no matter what she writes.

This book sucks you into a vortex that's never ending. You will be glued to your kindle until you reach the dreaded words “the end". I will be on pins and needles waiting for

Demons is book 2 in the Devil's Reach series and continues the story of Trigger and Tess. I loved it from beginning to end. So much happens during this book that had me on the edge of my seat but I loved Trigger and Tess's progression. Tess is definitely the kind of woman Trigger needs by his side and she showed such ruthlessness that fit perfectly. Trigger still has a mole and now his enemy's know Tess isn't just a warm body, she means the world to him. The ending killed me and I'm so happy I o ...more

Lots of things went down in this book, finally the enemies are showing themselves. This series is so good, very addictive. Love Trigger and Tess together. ...more

“Demons” by J.L. Drake is the 2nd book in The Devil's Reach series. This story picks up right where book 1 left off. You need to read book 1 “Trigger” to understand what is going on in book 2.
This book picks up with Tess returning 'home' – a place that holds terrible, painful memories for her. Tess never planned to return back to this place yet Tess goes in order to find out what Clark has on Trigger and her new family. I am going to say it- Tess’s mom is a total witch. She is so nasty and just

Sweet baby Jesus! Can this woman do no wrong. Her books get better and better with each new release. DEMONS is no different. Book #2 in the Devil's Reach series and man o' man what a read.

Tess is back "home" with an evil mother, a sick stepfather/ex whatever you want to call him. Trigger is pissed, lost and angry wanting to know where she is and how to get to her?

This book is twist after twist. Trigger loves Tess but only he doesn't know that he does. She is the good, while the rest of his lif

This is he second release on this series with Trigger and Tess. Please be aware it may cause your own triggers due to the dark content.
We start back up where we left off with Trigger and Tess - things are being pushed to the limit in this release. Trigger wants Tess safe so she has got to go and Tess wants the MC life. Her mom is something else - let’s just leave that there.
The dark inside both of these characters is immense. I thought maybe this release we would get squar

This is the second book in the series and I am even more attached to this MC and the characters than I was in book one. No mistake here. This is a seriously f 'd up bunch of people. I mean, what in the ever living heck did I just read? Leave your squeemish stomach at the door. Tess and Trigger are perfect for each other if they can just get past the horrors that are their lives.

Once again, this is a serial. Things are not wrapped up nice and neat by the end. Don't go into it thinking it will be

What is there to say about this book? I thought I was prepared for the second part to Trigger and Tess' story but I was not. I laughed, cried, screamed, and fell in love all over again with this book. If you have not read J.L Drakes Trigger please do then immediately pick up Demons, it is amazing. I can not to see what this talented author has in store for us in the third book.

A little bit too much drama in this book, but that means pace and angst were present, so I finished book quickly.
I was annoyed by things ALMOST ALWAYS happen to Tess, her past was implied as living in great cruelty, but later you see everything was really exaggerated. Big words little deeds. Just like author didn't want to put huge black spot on heroine. Some things simply didn't add up.
I still love chemistry between Tess and Trigger (even though their dinamic was pretty intense), so I will con

J.L. Drake has again delivered an incredible story with a legendary cliffhanger ending that will leave you screaming and crying for book 3. You can't help but love her and well...not love her in the same breath.

You must read Trigger, Devil's Reach 1, before reading Demons to understand the continuation of the story. In Demons many of the questions of who Trigger and Tess are and what they come from are finally answered. Their stories are intense and dirty and dark and twisted but told in such a

4.5 Stars-No End in Sight...

And as I just reread the blurb to make sure I don't post spoilers, J.L. Drake has it at the very bottom plain as day, "This is Book 2 in the Devil’s Reach trilogy, and it ends with a cliffhanger." Damn her. I may accidentally spoil book one, so beware.

When we left Tess in Trigger, she was heading back home. If you want to call it that. After the incident in the church where the dead seemed to come back from the past, Trigger did the only thing he knew and that was to

“Our hoodies covered our skin, the rags hid our faces, and the reaper rode bitch on our backs.”

This series gets better and better. I was hooked onto every word and mesmerized by how the story unfolds. We learn more about Tess’s horrible childhood and she once again reminds me of how strong she truly is.

“This place had broken me more than once. I could only imagine what it would do this time around.”

I freaking knew. I knew this torment wouldn't end but I whispered to myself that everything would be okay. It would all come together and JL Drake would end my suffering. I lied to myself...out of hope.

If you want answers, get in line. A hundred different answers will fly at you in this book but the only thing they are good for is more questions. JL Drake has me a twisted up, needy mess. I'm like a junkie on withdrawal. I have the shakes and I just finished 2 minut

The second book in the Devil’s Reach MC trilogy. As the first book, this second book also ends on a cliff hanger.

Demons picks up where Trigger ended with the newly realised couple are apart. What finally unfolds in this book is Tess’ past and where she has run back to. The bloodthirsty action continues with another gritty MC read. Trigger’s buried past is also back to plague him which gradually unfolds in bringing both their pasts to a coincidental clash, that unleashes further blood spill.

This was such a good book! Very well written, I dived wright into the story. The problem is I want more! This series is pure addiction.

The story continues with Tess, a feisty 30’s old who is currently living at her mom’s because she needs time to think. She has run out on Trigger after the incident in the church. The problem is, no one expected her to go at her mother’s establishment, where painful memories surround her.

Fantastic follow up to book 1

I absolutely love Tess, she guarded but shows enough emotion that can floor a few of the Devils Reach, the problem is too many people are taking a little too much notice of her and when things start to fall into place, you got it More Shit shows up at the door.
But when Tess runs she runs with the impression so one will be coming for her.

But who will be the one to show their face will it be the devil or the Saint !!!!!!!!!!

So this book starts where Trigger ended. Trigger is on a rampage and Tess has run off to where she never wanted to go back to.

Tess is back at her mothers place which we find out is a brothel kind of place, and Clark is there. Tess hates it there but has no choice right now but to be there. We learn a lot about Tess and her past. It is very emotional and hard to read at some parts.

Trigger is back to being himself before Tess. He is also trying to find his father. Everyone in his crew wants Tess
