Product description

Product Description

Although this is book two of the Devil Despair series, this book can be read as a STAND ALONE novel.

I’m known to my friends as a player; a user of women.

I don’t believe in relationships. They’re messy and confusing. They don’t last.

Lacey Wells walked into my life and ruined it. Although not in the traditional sense, we made the decision to be ‘exclusive’. We used each other to satisfy our bodies’ want of lust and attraction. And we had this…for a time.

When uncontrollable events altered the arrangement and life as we knew it had fallen to circumstance, my reactions weren’t only punishing, they were painful and cruel. I pushed her away, causing her heartache, but in return, she refused to break. Instead, she challenged my will at every turn. She was determined to make me see the person I always was, but had never been. I was desperate and searching for the answer I was so anxious to have…

Was I capable of falling in love?

Our path together was tumultuous and unforgiving. At times, it was full of anger and resentment. But it was also fun and sometimes downright ridiculous.

There’s no label to our story; tales of cliché pale in comparison. It just happened. It was us. It was crazy and it was exactly what we made it.

Note: There are no love triangles or cheating that takes place within this story. It’s a HEA; however, the road to getting there is full of angst, sadness, and regret. If you aren’t a reader who enjoys the element of angst or heartache, this book isn’t one you’d find enjoyment in reading.

Due to content, this book should not be purchased by readers under the age of 18.

Hayden's Verse is book two in the Devils Despair series by A C Bextor. This time it's lead singer Hayden Flynn's turn to take to the stage along with gaining another chance to see how Ace, Rae and the rest of the gang are fairing or growing up in the case of Sarah!! Oh my how she is becoming fiesty!!

Hayden is the alleged playboy lead singer in the band Devil's Despair and always has a different woman on his arm. However, looks can be deceiving in this case. There is always more to this group of misfits then meets the eye and Hayden is no different.

Travis found out at the end of Ace's Redemption hat he had a long lost sister named Lacey. In this book we see what leads Lacey to Travis's door. Travis is very protective of her as he is with all the females in his life and he dutifully warns Lacey of Hayden and his ways with women. Hayden is also warned off Lacey. The warnings are to no avail as both Lacey and Hayden find an equal amount of physical attraction to one another and can't deny the pull they have to each other.

Lacey gives Hayden a run for his money with her quick wit and can give as good as she can take of the ways of flirting. Hayden is falling hard for Lacey and starts to feel things he's never felt before towards a woman. As the two spend more time together, the more Lacey realizes there is more to Hayden than the playboy veneer his friends see. She is determined to make him see he is so much more than just a player and worthy of loving.

Lacey stands up for Hayden against her brother Travis. Support is something Hayden is not used to. He is used to his friends assuming he is nothing more then a playboy and therefore not worthy of Lacey. "No one has ever made me feel as important as she just did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth reading as well as other written by A. C. Bextor! 9 March 2015

OMG A. C.!!! You've done it again! I can't believe I could actually hate someone as much as I hated Ace in Toxic. Hayden came very close. I had to put my Kindle down several times while reading. After awhile, I would look at my husband and say, "Let's see if Hayden's still being stubborn!" He just looked at me like I was crazy. I love this series as much as I love Lights of Peril; however, no one can take Shame's place in my heart! This book got into some deep subjects and was very touching in some cases. Does Lacey and Hayden find their HEA ending? You'll have to read to find out. While you're at it, pick up Ace's Redemption (Devil's Despair Book 1) and all 3 of the Lights of Peril series. You won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply put ... It's an amazing ride 3 February 2015
By Amber Shavor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So I woke up this morning sad, almost to the point of pouting, wanna know why? Because I, like any other girl who sets eyes on Hayden Flynn, fell in love with him, with Lacey and now that I devoured their story, I want more. I keep trying to swipe more pages with my Kindle but it’s not working. I keep looking at the cover and I get depressed. You know when you fall in love with a story and you just know even before you reach the end, that it will stay with you long after you finish it? Well what do you know; you will get this with Hayden’s Verse. I messaged AC right after I read the hilarious last line and told her that I needed more, she had the audacity to ask me why? I said, “well I fell in love with that little s***”, and I have no doubt every single one of you will too.

Hayden Merit Flynn… Hayden Merit Flynn has a nice ring to it don’t you think? Yeah, you should hear his voice too, and the looks go right along with a name like that too. Only one problem, he’s a self-proclaimed playboy who isn’t looking for a cure…. That is until little miss sassy pants Lacey walks right into his life.

At the end of Ace, I wanted Hayden’s book bad. I knew it would have to be someone special to try and tame him, knew she had to be one of a kind. It couldn’t just be a random run of the mill girl, no this girl had to have spunk. Enter Lacey, Trav’s little sister aka Little miss spitfire. I loved her personality, loved the way she got under Hayden’s skin, loved the way she got into his heart and soul and made him feel, made him question every freaking thing that he was brought up to believe in.

Hayden didn’t expect Lace, didn’t expect the way he would feel, he was absolutely out of his mind when it came to Lacey.

I cant give away too much of their story without spoilers but every word, every line and every heart ache they encountered together, whether it was from each other or outside heartbreak, everything was worth it. I caught myself crying with the characters, screaming at Hayden just like Lace did but also, I caught myself fighting along with Lace and Hayden and for their relationship. It was beautiful and these two souls couldn’t have had a better ending with the hands they were dealt with. They deserved their slice of happiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Hotness Hayden!! 3 February 2015
By Michelle Shelly - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hayden was raised by his alcoholic father who he watched use women for sex his whole life. He's never been in love nor did he ever want to be. All he needed is his life was his father and his friends.
Lacey was raised by her druggie whore of a mother. Lacey came in one night to find her mother and her boyfriend going at in on the kitchen floor. Lacey had enough, she packed her bags and went out in search of a brother Travis she didn't even know she had until recently.
Travis and Hayden have been friends their whole lives. Travis invites his friends over to met his sister and there is a immediate attraction between Lacey and Hayden. Between the sexual tension and the playfulness these two have it is hysterical. He has a dirty mouth and she pops it right back to him. Hayden being the manwhore he is doesn't do relationships, he proposes a "exclusive" relationship between the two, meaning exclusive sex. Lacey goes along with him. They start to develope feelings for each other and when there is a accident Hayden loses it. Between a life changing incident and a secret coming out can these two make it?
AC Bextor did it again!! One of my favorite things about her books are the characters. They are people you want to know, people you can see yourself sitting down and having a drink with. People that you can see some of your friends in. Read this series , you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hayden has got me swooning! 13 February 2015
By Jules - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
From the minute the book starts I can already tell I will be falling hard for Hayden. He's the hot untouchable guy every women wants to fix but knows she's gonna get burned in the process but then you think how worth the burn will totally be and you go for it anyway. Lacey, the newly discovered sibling to one of the members of Devils Despair, comes in and right away gels with all the previous characters especially her brother Travis (again swooning). Travis knows his friend Hayden is no good for his kid sister but that doesn't stop Hayden from pursuing Lacey at all! At first Hayden and Lacey are keeping things casual but the sexual banter and tension are so thick all you can do is keep reading and wait. After holding out for way to long they are both starving to finally be together skin to skin and those two do Not disappoint. I loved the pairing of these two characters and as you read you are really hoping they can get past all their issues and just find the happiness they both deserve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angst Junkies! This one is for YOU! 2 February 2015
By Kindle Reader Ash - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
AC Bextor did it again! Sometimes the greatest villains of a story, come from within. Sometimes you are the hero and the bad guy. I LOVE Hayden. If you are familiar with AC's books, you know she has a way of letting you think you've figured out her story. She lets you think you've predicted what will happen. Then, not long after you have gotten comfortable, she pull the rug out of from under you. That is exactly what she has done this time. This story is fun. It's heart-breaking and heart-warming. It will make you cry and then laugh through your tears. It's not a traditional, cookie-cutter romance. It's over 300 pages and worth every second.

Watching Hayden and Lacey's relationship develop is beautiful to see (HOLY HOTNESS). You will FEEL everything they feel. You will be angry and sad and hurt. You will feel happiness and love. Bextor gets you through the pain and into the light. She closes out the story in a wonderful way.
