Publisher: Forever In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life...
She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life. Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his desire to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul...
is a truly wonderful start of a brand new world. A book which is engaging, grabbing and very hard to put down.
I don't know what I expected or didn't expect to find in this book, but I was both, pleasantly surprised and pulled in. Loved the concept of the demon world, the plot and the characters. The world building was strong, but not overwhelming, and the characters had that quality about them that you simply can't help but sympathize with them, wonder about their future, and even want to meet them after everything is said and done.
Eidolon is not a typical alpha hero (you know, arrogant, cocky and domineering), nevertheless, he's just as powerful character as any other, if not more. He is caring, compassionate and devoted, and also on the edge of losing his sanity along with everything he worked so hard for to the s'genesis (the final maturation cycle for the Seminus demons resulting in a single-minded creature with an only purpose to impregnate females no matter the consequences). His only salvation is a mate. But the woman he is drawn to is a killer of his people who believes that all demons are evil.
I have to admit that Tayla did get on my nerves a few times, her unwillingness to see the reason annoying at one point. Still, as a heroine she was a strong worthy woman and I simply loved the dynamics between the heroes.
Needless to say Pleasure Unbound
is a book I would gladly read again. And for those who didn't have their first time yet, you are missing!
