*Blog Tour* Clouded Hell by JR Gray

I survive on avoidance. Physical pain
to avoid the mental. Disposable flesh to avoid relationships. Work to avoid
attachment. My club became my empire of avoidance. Inside the ring millions are
won and lost. The fight is confined to breaths, actions and reactions, fists
and pain. Rules don’t exist. Only my opponent exists.

  

I’d been avoiding my needs for far too
long when Remi stumbles into the Inferno and I’m hungry. The promise of a
submissive with no attachment is far too tempting. I can’t resist him. He was
only supposed to be a distraction, but I know I’ll never get over him. There
isn’t a chance in this clouded hell.

 
 
 

 

Excerpt

It’s fucking hell being with you. Has
anyone ever told you that?”

His grin broadened. “The whole
world is hell, doll. At least with me you get a reprieve from the sun.”

“So this is hell at night?”

“I like to think of it as Clouded
Hell. One of the rare cool days you’ve got to hold on to when everything else
won’t quit.”

He lifted his hand again, and instead
of smacking me like I expected, he cupped my cheek and brought his forehead to
mine. I fucking melted, right there in his inner circle of hell, and I wouldn’t
have changed it.

 

My Review

I went into the book blind, having no idea how this author was as a writer…or how this story was going to play out.

Dante and Remi. Dear Lord. These two……. I am afraid that I can’t leave a review good enough without totally giving away major plot lines….but I will try.

Like the synopsis states: “I survive on avoidance. Physical pain to avoid the mental. Disposable flesh to avoid relationships. Work to avoid attachment. My club became my empire of avoidance. Inside the ring millions are won and lost. The fight is confined to breaths, actions and reactions, fists and pain. Rules don’t exist. Only my opponent exists” This is Dante. He has been suffering for years since the death of his husband. He’s a Dom, he likes to inflict pain…but inside the ring, he also likes to feel pain. He barely sleeps, has few friends, and is just existing, mourning the loss of his husband.

“I’d been avoiding my needs for far too long when Remi stumbles into the Inferno and I’m hungry. The promise of a submissive with no attachment is far too tempting. I can’t resist him. He was only supposed to be a distraction, but I know I’ll never get over him. There isn’t a chance in this clouded hell”. When Remi seeks out Dante, it’s for his own selfish needs. But they both quickly realize that they are drawn to each other. Remi has baggage and he is torn between the life he lives and the life he wants. He puts rules in place, thinking he can fight what he needs and feels, but the need between these two is just too strong to resist.

I absolutely loved Dante and Remi. Together, they were everything. This story was wonderfully written and honestly, beautiful in my own opinion. It drew me in from the beginning and I could not put it down until I was finished.

My only regret is that this story is over. I didn’t want it to end and I wish there was more.

About J.R. Gray

When not staying up all night writing, J.R. Gray can be found at the gym where it’s
half assumed he is a permanent resident to fulfill his self-inflicted
masochism. A dominant and a pilot, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger
seat of any car. He frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep
patterns and conversations, to jot down notes or plot bunnies. Commas are the
bane of his existence even though it’s been fully acknowledged they are necessary,
they continue to baffle and bewilder. If Gray wasn’t writing…well, that’s not
possible. The buildup of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave,
insanity or both. The idea of haunting has always appealed to him. J.R. Gray is
genderqueer and prefers he/him pronouns.
