I can't thank you all enough for the amazing support and participation so far. There is so much more to come in Demonica Week and I'm glad to have you all with me for the ride =)
Now to the review of My Love's (Shade) Book hehe...
After "Pleasure Unbound" (PU), Book 1 in the Demonica series, I was totally into Shade. I know that it was Doc E's book, but I so couldn't help it. Shade caught my eyes and when I dug into "Desire Unchained" (DU) I was so happy to finally get to read his story.
I came into this book with pretty high expectations. I loved PU so much that I was expecting a lot from Shade's book. I am happy to say that DU not only met my expectations, but simply raised the bar for me. I find that with each book Larissa Ione's writing just gets better and better and this series has already taken its well deserved place in my Top 10 favorite series.
The stakes are so high in this book that it got me bitting my nails. I was so apprehensive as to how the situation with Shade's curse was going to go down and I loved how it turned out. Runa is definitely perfect mate and I really liked that they had had a (sort of) relationship before that didn't work. No, I'm not crazy. It is just that, for me, that is a very true reflection of life.
"he reached for her, knowing he was making a huge mistake. She came to him willingly, folded herself against his chest. She felt good like that, her warmth surrounding him, filling him in places that had been empty and cold for so long."
They weren't perfect for each other then, time was necessary and certain circumstances were very necessary to make them the people they are now and for them to reach the point in their lives that they were finally ready for each other. Life molds us and sometimes we can meet the right person at the wrong time. I'm happy that Shade and Runa finally got the timing right in the end. A lot of people don't.
We get a very specific villain in this book and it is such an unexpected and nasty one at that. I was really afraid for the characters lives and when things get to such high stakes, it just makes the reading experience better.
I also really enjoyed the parallel story with Kynan and Gem. My heart bleeds for them and I do hope they get to be together in the future. That is another case of bad timing and it just breaks my heart. They are such charismatic and interesting characters that you can't help but get involved in their story.
Ione's writing is superb. The world she created in intriguing and terrifying, a world you just want to know more and more about. Her characters have such depth, even the secondary ones, and it is so much fun to get to know each and everyone of them.
"Both of Shade’s hands were on her shoulders …“I can smell your desire, Runa,” he murmured in a coaxing, seductive tone. The man was sex on legs, an overwhelming mass of muscle, testosterone, and sensuality for which she had no defense. Nothing had prepared her for something like this. She doubted any woman could be prepared for Shade. At least not mentally."
There were a lot of Hot scenes in this book and My Shade (hehe) is sexy as hell. Runa and him together almost put my laptop screen on fire hehe =)
I recommend this book to all Paranormal Romance fans out there. This is a series that cannot be missed!
