What happens when an innocent is sent to the dark side?

Anarchy is the new leader of hell. He doesn’t believe a young new arrival, Josh, can be a cold-blooded killer. He intends to find out why Josh killed two men and if he deserves the tortures of hell or the peace of heaven. If Josh has to be chained, naked and about to burst from pleasure to tell the truth, well then so be it.

Be Warned: m/m sex, flogging, bondage


“Have you been the devil long? Or does it like change hands?” he asked.

I wondered if he was truly curious or he was trying to stall so he could eat until he got sick. “I am not the devil. Anarchy is the name, took over for the devil about a hundred years ago.”

“You’re one hundred?” His eyes went wide.

I grinned.

“Why did you take over?” He ate another puff.

I was mesmerized by his tongue. It licked the white cream off his lips and had my cock twitching in my pants. They were suddenly very, very tight. I snapped my fingers. The pants disappeared and were replaced by a red towel. It was warm and gave my erection more room to breathe. Josh gave the towel a glance and then quickly looked away.

“The devil fell in love. Once that happened, he lost his horns and decided to embrace mortality with the woman that stole his heart.” I rolled my eyes. Why the devil wanted to give up all this for one pussy was beyond me.

“Well, that’s kinda romantic.” Josh finally stopped eating. He sat back, looking content. “Thanks for feeding me.”

“Like I said, I like meat on my meals.”

Josh paled a little. “You’re...you’re going to eat me?”

I had to chuckle. “Not in the way you’re thinking.” I reached over, my fingers running up and down his thigh.


I let some fang show through my parted lips and shifted my hand. My palm pressed against the tip of his cock. The flesh was warm, hard, and I grinned as a drop of pre-cum smeared against my skin. I grabbed his shaft, harder than I had to, but soft enough not to hurt, much. Josh hissed out a breath, his eyes closing, and head falling back. I stroked him, my fingers lingering on his balls before I glided my palm back up to his cock head. “You are a very handsome young man.”

He opened his eyes. “Thank you.”

“And I find myself curious as to why, exactly, you murdered two people.”

His erection twitched in my hand. He looked at me, pleasure replaced with something else, guilt maybe. “Does it matter? I killed them.”

His erection began to soften, and I pulled my hand away. I was surprised at his resolve, at his willingness to defy me. I was, after all, Anarchy, ruler of hell. I flicked my hand to the left and chains formed on the wall.

Josh swallowed hard. “Are those...are they for me?”

I nodded, my smile fading. “I still plan to eat you.” I licked my lips. To my surprise, he willingly stood and moved to the wall, the only one without a window. He stood against it, his cock stirring once again. With a jerk of my fingers, the shackles wrapped around his wrists, pulling until Josh’s arms were above his head. “You’re in my playground now,” I whispered, standing and tugging the towel off my hips.

Great story
Written by Ann on 27th Jan 2017

Enjoyed this story, though would have preferred it to have been longer. Given 4 stars as I thought the ending was rather rushed. Apart from this loved the story and would like to read more.

Night Owl Reviews

In WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE readers get a fast paced story about finding love in the last place you look. Anarchy is not a man to be toyed with. He rules Hell with an iron fist and expects to be obeyed in all ways and quickly. When Josh shows up in Hell because of his sin Anarchy is not so sure about where he should go or what to do about Josh. Add in the sudden emotions that are plaguing Anarchy and his world begins to spin. The two have an instant connection but just what is it and why? When Anarchy receives a message from Heaven things begin to fall into place but sweet innocent Josh is not meant for Hell. Will Anarchy give up the man that he has begun to love so that Josh may have a better afterlife? Love can make a man do many things but will it be strong enough to save Josh and Anarchy? This story is a quick short read. As hot as the relationship gets between Anarchy and Josh you are still able to see the trust and love in it. Watching Anarchy work through his emotions and what they mean was a nice read. I enjoyed watching their attraction turn into something more. The two complement each other and make a good couple. The only negative is that their story is so short. It felt like just the beginning and I would love to see more of these two and their world.

Oh. My. God! Read this story. It's so hot...literally. It takes place in hell. Anarchy and Josh have a sexy chemistry that is apparent from the first time they meet. Hell isn't such a nice place to be, but in their own cocoon, it's like their little private island in the middle of nowhere. If you've never read anything from James Cox, this is a great start. It's a freebie (although I'd have gladly paid for it), and it's a great one.

Quick but damn sexy and hot read!!
Written by Anne Bock on 6th Oct 2014

Loved this Story and his lovely and sexy characters so much, i just had to reread it again after finishing the firts turn! Anarchy, the "Devil replacement" is a sexy bad boy that founds his mate in sweet young Josh. He falls for the human more and more and just wants to "eat him up" in all sexual ways possible. After discovering that his sweet little human is innocently in hell, Anarchy has to make the hardest decision ever in his whole long life.... The only thing i have to complain about is that this Story is really to short! Loved every word of it and maybe we could read some more about that hot horned-one in future...

Great Quick Read
Written by S. Cu'Anam Policar on 7th Apr 2014

Anarchy.. Lucifer's replacement.. "King of the Bad Boys"... meets his match in Josh C. Kend. This is a short, seriously, ten minute read. But it's sweet. I really liked the word play and the numerous innuendos littering these pages. My only regret is there so much more that could added to this to make it longer and it's not there since it's a short. While it's a ten minute read, I definitely wouldn't advise reading on your lunch break, the sex is steamy and detailed wonderfully. I would recommend this book to any lover of M/M erotica and definitely look forward to reading more from this author. I do hope this authors considers writing something a tad longer one day but this is beautiful for a freebie read. I give this book 5 of 5 paws.

Anarchy was interesting!

Hearts on Fire Reviews

Meet Anarchy. He’s Hell’s resident bad boy and ruler of all sinners (woo-hoo!) He even comes with a set of horns that protrude from his forehead, a shock of firey hair, and an attitude. If a person committed absolutely vile acts while living and descends to the underworld, they can expect an after death that is by no means sunflowers and rainbows. They might meet Baby, a two-headed dragon who likes to pork things with his big wang. Oooo, that would be fun. But if Anarchy finds that he has a soft spot for a troubled soul, he or she could end up being his slave, and having it somewhat easier. This is what happens when his Highness of Hell, meets tender, black-haired and blue-eyed, Josh, a sexy dude, who killed two people and was stabbed to death in return. And although, Joshie-Poo won’t say why he killed two guys, Anarchy somehow doesn’t believe the sexy thing could be a vile killer. So, he orders Josh to be his slave. The rest makes for a very hot, short read. I really enjoyed this very short story, and many readers will too. Anarchy has a wicked sense of humor, especially for being the ruler of Hell, and gasp! he is even sort of a romantic (who knew Satan had a soft side?) How he treats Josh and how Josh responds to him is, well, smoking! (pun intended). Josh, is a sweetheart, somewhat timid and reserved, yet he takes what Anarchy gives him. And when the reader finds out why he committed murder, it makes one wonder, and Anarchy too, if the laddie deserves to even be in Hell. This is a wonderful short love story. The sex is just kinky enough and hard enough not to be too hardcore. And the plot is fast, fun , and wraps up very nicely. Kudos to the author for keeping me amused and entertained. Highly recommended.

love james's style
