I'll admit right off the bat I went into this one with a lot of trepidation, and a good bit of disappointment. I had certain "expectations" on how I wanted Judge's book to play out, so when I found out the author was bringing in a completely new heroine instead of working with Judge's women whom we had already meet in the previous two books I felt a little "meh" about the whole thing. Still, I do really like this author, so I figured I'd give it the old college try. Unfortunately, I think my di

Another dumb book where the hero actually got to have a harem for sex and love and the heroine was celibate (the author made her be assaulted after the hero threw her out of his apartment to make sure she would never have any lovers) until he decided he wanted her again. It's 2019, why is it still such a sin for women to have sex and love outside the hero? He had it, why couldnt she? So to be clear, the hero had money, love, sex and emotional support from four women while the heroine

The romance is between the H and the other women he lives with so I suppose there is some romance.
Just not romance between the Hxh.
His gentle, caring and respectful thoughts and heavy sexy chemistry are reserved for the "his women" as he so possessively calls them
His dislike, then indifference, then lukewarm feelings is reserved for the h until his come-to-Jesus moment when he now wants a family and the h comes with a ready-made one.

Judge of Hell is the third book in the series Hell Night, which follows the story of four men who had been abused in their hometown in childhood, and now years later made it a safe place for them, their family, and the rest. It is a book that deals with second chances, it is an intense book with some twists in the middle of the way and each story makes you hope that each of these "Brothers" can achieve happiness.

Here we have the story of Judge, a character who has intrigued me since the

I'm so excited for getting Judge's book. He is one of the brothers that got me curious from the first book and I couldn't wait to read his story. Never in my thoughts, I could anticipated this awesome book. The author gave me so many things in this book and I'm so grateful!!!

Judge came out as reserved in the previous books. He's the one watching over all of them; he used to do it even back when Malus was Sweet Haven. He's strict about the rules and doesn't like strangers coming to Malus. I was w

A second chance is possible…

This gritty, dark series continues with Judge’s story, which I found just as compelling as JW and Trouble’s stories yet had unexpectedly lighter moments. It was a second chance romance that softened Judge’s demeanor in a way that surprised me. Not that his focus on retribution lessened. Oh no, that was as deep as ever, yet it wasn’t the focal point now. It was taking a back seat to other things, other emotions, that became his entire focus. Protective, still a hard-a*

Judge of Hell is book 3 in the
Hell Night series by Alex Grayson. Once again transported to the town of Malus. A town that dispenses it's own brand of justice. Ran by 4 men who while aren't blood related, are brothers! I have grown to love and adore these 4 men, Trouble, JW, Judge, and Emo. Their stories shattered my heart. But to see the men they are today makes me so proud of them. Alex Grayson has crafted a phenomenal story with these men. Every book in this series is a must read.

Wow... let me start off by saying I finished this book a couple days ago, and it took me this much time to come to terms with what i read so that I could write my review. The way that Alex is able to weave a story and do so much honor to the characters. The emotions that come through in this book are heart-wrenching and tore at my heart.
From book one in this series, Judge has been this Dark Horse to me. He was that made me wonder how his story would go and let me say, I was blown away. His relat

This is the third book in the Hell Night series, and I have been dying to get my hands on it. Dark, intense, sexy and romantic with a gorgeous second-chance-romance, this book maintains all of the gritty rawness of the first two books of the series, but at the same time feels a bit lighter, and I lost myself in the story, I loved it!

The four main characters of this series are a group of men who consider themselves brothers and who, along with all of the other children in their small Te
It concerns me greatly that women continue to write stories like this and pass it as romance. You are telling me that a woman did not have sex for 12 years, but the man had a harem of women that took care of his needs and also loved him. What woman would take back such a man after he kicked her out of his life without so much as a backward look. Then he expects the heroine to be friends with his harem. Yeah, this is very sickening.

Ms. Grayson, this shows me your view of women and the little sel

So disappointed!! It wasn’t awful but where did Judge go? The judge we met in the last 2 books definitely wasn’t the judge in this book. Hate to Insta love? Over the mistresses in a minute? Father of the year instantly after never wanting kids? And the Sierra storyline was just stupid.

The only reason I’m rounding up my 2.5 rating to 3 is because all-in-all I’ve liked this series. BUT.....

Now on to Emo’s book and I think I’m already annoyed. I’m staying openminded. I guess Grace can go hang out w

Judge of Hell by Alex Grayson is book three in her Hell Night series. Every book in the series is about another couple and can be read as a standalone. For better understanding and best reading experience I recommend to read the books in order. The previous booka are Trouble in Hell and Bittersweet Hell.

I've been intrigued by Judge since we met him in book one. I wanted to know what made this aloof man tick and the author did a good job of showing us the man beneath the mask.

The book is still as gritty and raw as the previous two. Judge and his brothers rule the town of Malus with an iron fist. One thing that has kept him going over the years was getting his revenge. It's pretty gruesome but I rejoiced when each new chapter was closed. Judge is happy with his women but when his past comes knoc

I actually didn't start writing this review until I finished book 4. My KU was about to expire and I had to finish the series. It's all been good. I will say it was surprising to me, after the buildup in the last couple books, how easily Judge drops all his ladies. This one is a dark, second chance romance. With of course some big surprises thrown in. I liked it, and moved right on to book 4. ...more

I've been dying to read Judge's story. This series is absolutely consuming. This twisty, intense read will definitely not disappoint.

No spoilers from me. Just know that Judge and Ellie's story will leave you in a puddle of goo. The tension between these two is maddening.
I highly recommend this series.

This whole series has absolutely floored me. The subject matter is really, really heavy and definitely not for everyone, as there are triggers for child sexual abuse.

Being someone who was a victim of child sexual abuse, this series has really helped me kind of get closure for what had happened to me. The four main guys protect the citizens of their town and will kill anyone who harms a woman or child in any way. It's really nice reading about pedophiles getting tortured, just like they should

This series just keeps on getting better, dark and more depraved... God I love it! This author is very creative with how the bad guys meet their end!

As predicted, we knew Judge had a harrowing childhood just like the other characters in this series, but each characters faces aspects of the same forms of abuse. The strength of these characters is evident in the writing, it's powerful, encumbering and emotive.This author has the ability to give you chills down your spine one minute and as well as

I have been patiently waiting for Judge. There was just something about him that grabbed my attention. I so needed his story. Alex blew me away with this one. Not at all what I was expecting from Judge. It was even better. Judge is just that the judge in the town. He is hard core bent on punishing those that need to be punished. He will keep his town safe no matter what. Things change when his past walks into his office with quite the surprise. This surprise brings out the sweet side of Judge. I ...more

I had high hopes for Judge’s story but I was bored and underwhelmed. I didn’t enjoy the fact that he was so pissed at Ellie when he made it clear they were over IN A TRASH WAY. Why would she contact him for anything at the time, especially given her circumstances? I also wasn’t a fan of the poly shit. It was weird and made no sense, particularly Ellie’s relatively blasé and forgiving attitude.

I went into Judge of Hell not entirely sure that Alex Grayson was going to be able to pull this one off, don't hate me! The reason that I say that is because we have been set up to understand certain things about Judge and from reading the synopsis I knew that the life he had been leading was about to be turned on it's head. Now yes, we are talking about a contemporary romance, someone's life always gets turned on it's head but that was a little different in my opinion because not only was he sh ...more
