Review for Pandora's Box by Gracen Miller

Description: Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun... 

My Thoughts: Gracen Miller brought her “Road to Hell” Series in with a bang! 
Madison has quite a predicament on her hands when her 5 year old son Amos starts killing not only their animals, but also the neighbors. He even goes as far as attacking her. How could her son be a typical little boy one day and then pure evil the next? Let me tell you this kid gives a new meaning to cringe worthy. Madison isn't about to give up on her little boy though and after numerous try's for help, she finally gets Georgie, who sends in the cavalry via the Birminghams.

Phoenix, also known as Nix, is an infamous man whore to his family who develops a mutual attraction with Madison. Uncharacteristic of his reputation, Nix finds he respects Madison too much to “hit it and quit it” while Madison finds out not only is she currently married to the king of hell but part demon as well. 

This story was insane! I loved it from beginning to the end. As I stated, Amos in the beginning was cringe 
worthy, but you root for Mads as she tries to help her son. Eventually Amos chooses the good side over the evil. Mads is beautiful, and reserved, but soon her inner kick-ass appears with a side of sass. I fell in love with the whole Birmingham family with all their sarcastic,  Sherlock abilities. 

Micah, who is Mr. “King of Hell” himself, made me want to cringe at times, but then there would be an instance that  I would think I could see a soft side to him, but only a smidgen, like at the end. 

Nix and Mads had me growling from time to time just because I knew how much they were meant to be, but were fighting it, except in an all important moment before a trip to hell. There you see what they may be like in bed. 

The ending had me at the edge of my seat in anticipation to see what is going to happen next. I have to say I loved this book. When you’re waiting for a book for so long, you always wonder if you will love it or if it wasn't worth the wait. This was sooooooo worth the wait until I had it in my hand. All in all, Gracen Miller took us for one Hell of a ride and I’m sure it’s only the beginning...

So strap in and hang on, because you’re in for an adventure to Hell itself...Are you ready to SIN?
