Book Review: Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione
The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward messed me up. I’ve never been into any type of paranormal romance, but alas…thats right..alas..I’m hooked. I searched for another series to fill the void and came across the Demonica series.
This was a really hard start. I was raised Baptist, by Baptist for a Baptist type life. Reading about demons, even if they have ripped abs and hearts of gold was tough. The idea is that all creatures are capable of good and evil, no matter the orgin. Although I want to say “Heck Yes!” to that, it was really hard to become sympathtic and co-sign the stories. Ya don’t play with the Devil!
Well this story centered around a demon named Eidolon, who runs a hospital in the underworld. He’s a moody workaholic that lacks social skills but has been bred to statisfy the ladies. While on duty he meets a humand named Tayla. She works in the Aegis (a group dedicated to fighting evil) and has no patience for passive aggressive demon doctors. But of course his rippled whatnot…and her rippening so and so..and ta da! They are together.
There’s also demon brothers thrown in the mix that end up as the subject for the rest of the series. It’s a decent addition to the genre and it was a decent start.
