Mick knew Alex was not his mate, but that did not mean he did not love the man.  When Alex ends up betraying Mick, the demon does not know if he can ever recover.  As head of security for Anything Goes, Beck has had to watch the man he loves spend his time with other men.  When Mick falls apart after killing Alex, the wrath demon knew he would do anything to see Mick return to his old self. 

Lust & Wrath is the third story in Ms. Flynn’s Anything Goes series and tells the story of Mick and Beck.  As fans of this series know, Mick is a lust demon who has just faced a major betrayal and has withdrawn into himself, leaving his friends in the position of feeding him to keep him from going to hell.  Beck is a wrath demon who needs to feed off the anger of others, which comes in handy as head of security for the club.  Beck also has a few secrets, one of which is his love for Mick.  The author uses all of this to bring the two men together and I am glad that, rather than dragging Mick’s situation out till the last book, the author decided to address it now.  It’s really easy to be drawn in by these two men and I thought their reactions to the situations they found themselves in came across realistically.  Coming together takes time but when they do, the passion that exists between them is intense and I like the switch up that this coupling has. 

Several new secondary characters were introduced and I am curious how they will play into future stories.  Readers should keep in mind that the books in this series are tightly entwined and should be read in order.  Each new book in this series will hold the reader’s attention and this one is no different.  Readers are sure to like Lust & Wrath and should keep their eyes open for the next story in this series, Lust & Were.
