Blurb: Designing a complex revolving gate system is something a mechanical savant like Garnet Reynard thinks up in his sleep…
Being able to explain it in a way people could actually understand without his nerves getting the better of a geek like him is the challenging part. At least he’s got outlets for those times, like riding his tricked-out ATV at breakneck speeds.
Which is how he happened upon some dirty hound sex going on in the woods and is caught peeping. Clayton Arnold is all too happy to find the sexy stranger who can’t seem to get his mouth to work. When they meet up again and Clayton hears Garnet’s voice, things get complicated and exciting fast and there’s not a very good way to let Garnet in on the change in their status.
Right, because keeping the secret of being mates has ever worked out well. But when a life-threatening accident happens, will they take the chance to fix what’s wrong or will it wrench them farther away from the love they both want?

Review: Each book in the Hounds of Hell collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Garnet is one special man and was saved by the hellhounds and angels. He loved to be a bit feisty and drives fast. When he was given an ATV, he had of course had to trick it out. Make it go faster and he never did follow the straight road. He had been told many times that he was going to break his damn neck. While out he came across a hell-hound pounding another. Turned the hell on, he was shocked when the hound found him out.
Clayton has taken to the sexy little man he has found in the woods, but then was shocked when he found out that Garnet is his mate. His litter follows the old rules, when one takes a mate they all get to play with him. What he never understands was why his mate was not going for it. Clayton really needs his ass kicked.
There is something about the way that Flynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their love ones with their entire lives.
I love the paranormal tone and the little bit of twists that come with it. I had never really thought about a story that not only has angels in it but hellhounds also. When one thinks hellhound, they think evil and death. Now granted they were originally from hell and they can kill who they think need to die, these guys are different. Now even though there is a bit of angst with each character, which at times can drive a reader nuts, there is very little danger. This one is a bit different as is Garnet being in trouble but no outside danger.
Other than that I had a blast reading this story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.
