Passion Unleashed by Larissa Ione

“When you are dining with a demon, you got to have a long spoon.” —Navjot Singh Sidhu

"Forbidden Temptations…
Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter—and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she’s been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality . . . as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn’t all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she’s finally met the one man she cannot resist.
Fatal Desires…
Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe—her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions, and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: he’s falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own."

This is the most Romantic book on these series, is something that would grow very slow but it would grow very strong.
The first books on the series are mostly that love that they "want to fight" but they fall for that person anyways and they fight as much as they can but there is not much out after that they are together whether they want it or not they love each other, but with this one that is not it.
Well this one top it all i think this is my favorite book on the series so far i love them all but this one is my favorite( Wraith is my favorite character after all) i think his story is the best no only because he was the one that didn't want to love no one, no to care about no one and what make this story the best is the idea of death it self and what happen when you are to seduce someone but you learn that it may be the only person in the world that would make you happy and you may as well kill that person, in the other book there was hate and there was passion but in this one is like two people falling for each other and only one of them knowing the true that could break them apart, and that what make it so good the idea they may love each other but they may as well die for each other literally.
to top the book, this book actually brings a special content, At the back of the book, you will find a compendium that provides details about most of the species of demons found in the Demonica world, as well as some extras about the main characters and pronunciation guides for some of the more difficult names. Also included is a short story that tells about the first meeting between Eidolon, Shade, Roag, and Wraith.
Also this book brings joy to some of the character as well as a war and the idea that soon everything is going to be alright and that maybe the biggest evil are not those that are demon but those that has been corrupt in the heart.
Also Gem and Ky are here as well and they are to stay and a new character is in town and he has a secret that would rock your world.

Revenant by Phaedra M. Weldon

There Nothing Left to lose....

"Zoë Martinique's life hasn't been ordinary for quite awhile. First she developed the ability to travel outside her body at will-where she encountered some seriously weird things. Things that left her with powers that she didn't really want or need. Still, a person can get used to almost anything- even being a Wraith. Though more often than not, it plays serious havoc with her love life. But for once, Zoë is glad of her abilities. Bodies are showing up all over Atlanta, drained of blood. They're beings from another astral plane, called Revenants-and they're being stalked by her old enemy, the Phantasm. The Revenants are hardly the nicest of creatures-but to preserve the cosmic balance, Zoë will need to put everything on the line to save them..."

Wow i thought the last book was my favorite but i was wrong, this is my favorite in the series so far.
what a end, and what a plot what a everything ( i don't have much to say but my god this book just took my words).
I think Phaedra M. Weldon knew that Zoe tales is was coming to a end and that she need something to make her reader go crazy and she did it ( bravo).
her other book are always in the lose of someone ( like some die or some go crazy that kind of thing) but what happen when you are the one that is loss to everyone else, what happen when you are to do the right thing but you don't know what that is. or what happen when you think you know someone but you don't?. all good question right no so much of the answer in here, but i do know may be some of those answer would come in the next book I hope.
This book bring the big questions, as for how really care for her and who is there for her, I think for the first time in the series, we learned who are going to be always in Zoe life even if she doesn't want to.
the end of the book was a shock to me and i think for all out there as well, i still can believe what just happen and it kill me to know i have to wait for the next book to come out, and right now i have no idea what is going to happen in that next book, or who is going to be there or what is going to happen.
I just know something and that is the next book is going to be from someone else eyes and i think is going to be gold, is going to make us the reader want more and more of the series and i just can wait for it.
The character are fun and this plot in general is the best she has one of the most unique series i have read and make up for so many of the other thing that she has fix other the time, even as we speak. Her book are become more centered in the story line and the main character "Zoe" doesn't lose her self as she did in the first book she still in need of her mom and she act like a kid but no as much as that first to books, i think finding herself alone make her grow up a lot let see what happen next in the series thou.

Phantasm by Phaedra M. Weldon

When out-of-body is out of reach....

"Just when Zoë Martinique, formerly ordinary twenty-something, was getting used to the idea that she was possessed of extraordinary powers, she lost them. Without cause or warning. And at the worst possible time.
Now, unless she can figure out how to go Wraith again, she won't be able to rescue her mother, whose soul is trapped on the Abysmal plane.Her only hope is to join forces with an old enemy, who has his own dark reasons for helping her.
From him she learns that only a traumatic experience can bring the Wraith back. To get out-of-body, Zoë will have to look for big, dangerous trouble - and fast.
For there is a deadly and powerful being within the Abysmal that wishes Zoë never existed - and it's coming for her."

For book 3 on the series, I was not disappointed I actually Love it. Is one of my favorite in the series so far ( you know i actually like The TC and he come out in this one a lot).
Anyways the characters in this one I like it ( are the same from the other just they are acting more strong than the book before) and in the last book we hear a lot about Zoe Dad so I supposed that he was to come in for this book so we learned how he is ( mostly when authors speak of a character before hand and is one that is dead or something is because we are to learn about him/her very soon). Is actually fun to learned what happen to her dad and all that, of course the big mystery here is how is Maharba and why he does what he does but that would come soon i hope.
Zoe losing her abilities is this book not only let you to know why she lose them and how so that is a plus for the book.
This story is full of surprises that i can get enough of it. It has almost everything Love, Passion,Mystery, Caring and action and is nice to see all this in a story so original that is playing for it own competition.
I still think Zoe need to grow up a little but in each book she does grow a little no only in power but in everything even though she still need her mom and all that she knows she now can do things by herself if is necessary.
I can wait for the next book and if you ask me i want her to date Joe he actually a little more put together than Daniel that is all crazy and all that but would see what happen next i guess.

Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione

When walking through the “valley of shadows,” remember, a shadow is cast by a
—Austin O’Malley

"Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .

Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn’t resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.
A Seminus demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he’d seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts—or succumb to a madman’s evil plans."

OMG !!!!! stop what you doing right now and start reading this series NOW!!!!!

Wow i love it, is like going back for when i start reading Adult series, I'm falling in love all over again.

Larissa Ione knows what she want her reader to feel when they are read this books and she is Definitely not fulling around when it come to make the lust and passion to come out. this book is so sexy and passion it that let the reader to only wish they could be like that ( or do the things that this Demons do).

All the character in this book are so different but they have something in common, they all have a way to say the best and the worst in people and there Wicked temper.

in this one the main character are as you know Shade and Runa bring the words HATE to a new meaning, but you get to read from Eidolon, Luc, Kynan, Gem, Wraith and someone is going to be a the mystery man. ( no want to ruing the surprise).

Eidolon the first brother and main character in book 1, Luc the wolf that change Runa, Kynan ex-Aegis, Gem is Tayla sister from book 1, Wraith is brother of E and Shade.

At the beginning at any book you don't know what they going to do and what they going to do for certain thing like when they have a curse on there head or they are to kill that person, and so on.

But this book let you know there is sexier than the one before and that you may think you know the end but you so don't.

everything about this series scream to you Sex, Sexy, Passion, Love, Blood, Hate, decadently sinful and much more.

This is a no-stop-until-you-done series and is one of the book them where is say the next is to come you pre-order the book month before it come out.i haven't read in a long time a series so full of passion ( as a new series not series that i have already comment about). love the series and i have to give it to Larissa Ione I'm in love with her character and one of my favorite is Wraith, and i can wait to read her book that is coming next.

Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione

"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…"
Wow I'm in love with this book ( of course i love most adult books in general). I think this book is good and so fun to read. It reminded me of Gena Showalter work, they idea are totally different but the love that she show you there is very similar but never the same i like it.
This was fun and in so really wear way different ( because normally the guys is like the big things and all that but in here he is just a doctor) so i not used to it, i mean he is strong he just not much of a fighter, and you have your heroin that is very strong but it has a dark secret and they complement each other in some crazy way that when you are reading this book you can believe that they can hate each other with so much passion and at the same time love each other with that same passion, doesn't matter what they are they can just stay away from each other.
I was seduced by this book and there character i love them i laugh and i feel sad and happy of course in this book the character are more horny than the other book i have read, it was actually something if you ask me. and in some book they like take half the book to kiss and half more to have sex. NO-no here they do it like they were bunnies and the author take great pleasure in letting you read about it ( if you don't have a sex life don't read this book, you going to come out wishing for a mate).
I think this book show that the "good guys" sometimes are more evil than the one that the accuse of been the Evil, Villain, Demon etc. ( i say this because of Gena Showalter, Lords of the underworld a great series to read as this one was, they have this similar plot of good VS. evil you have to chose what side you think is the bad or the good).
This book is a not stop reading book Very dark, very sexy, and very creative. I think Larissa Ione ( i read that she was when Katrina happen and she survive that) making this book with so much pleasure and you can put-it-down and if you do you can-stop-thinking-about-it, show that you can come out-out of anything if you put your mind into that, so wow congratulation to her.
Love the book i can wait to read book two.
( and remember i been putting on hold my other series because i waiting for the books to arrive).
Have fun and keep reading

Spectre by Phaedra M. Weldon

Mental note: I'm Fu......

" Zoë Martinique has the extraordinary ability to travel outside her body at will. When she is drawn into an investigation of a series of bizarre murders, in which the victims are missing body parts, Zoë hopes to help her boyfriend, Atlanta homicide detective Daniel Frasier, stop the killer-- one she's sure is from the darkest levels of the astral plane--without letting him find out about her special abilities.Then danger strikes close to home when Zoë's mother disappears, and Zoë must use all the powers at her command to save her--even though Zoë knows that, in doing so, she may make herself into something no longer entirely human."

Book two for Phaedra Weldon i think is was really good, and is was a little more specific on it and all that.
i like it ( i say last time that the main character loses herself to much making the book longer and difficult to get it).
but this one was actually least and much more i like it.
the character are so fun to read in this one and there is so much drama that i can get enough of it.
Zoe is a fun character that is now more fun because you Can actually learn how she is, because i actually learn more about her in this book than i did in the first book.
i now know how childish she is and why? and why she need always someone around of her, the love for those around her and all that i like it.
she has so much passion and some much to give but she hasn't even learn that herself and i think is going to be fun to see what happen in the book to come i guess because the next one is to take TC and her to a adventure of there own.
and maybe in the way we learn more about her father and some of this missing characters.

Wraith by Phaedra M. Weldon

You can see me but i can.....

"First in an excitingly different and new paranormal series. Zo' Martinique has turned her unusual ability into a career. When she's traveling, she can't be seen which makes her an ideal professional snoop. Industrial espionage, surveillance, whatever. But one night things get out of hand while she's outof- body. She witnesses a murder and a soul stealing, and discovers she has unwelcome company: Trench- Coat, a ghostly killer who can see and hurt her. Teaming up with a blue-eyed police detective, she tries to solve the case and improve her love life. She also enlists the support of her psychic mother and the ghostly couple who haunt her house. And with murderers, kidnappers, and a desperate ex-porn star involved, Zo' needs all the help she can get."

WOW!! I guess it took me longer that normal to read this book, I finally read it. it happen that want it to re-read another book "Night Huntress by Jeaniene Frost".
Anyways, this story "Wraith" is not bad of course is so unique, that make it good ride out the back. I never read something like this or maybe once but they were aliens ( so no is not the same) the idea of different worlds in one, one that can be see for those of the living and the one that can be see for the one of the death and some on. To make thing interesting or main character can see both.
The book is okay is not great or anything, because the main character is a little child like, and she get out of contest to often so make the book longer ( and in my opinion no that interesting) I think the book could be much better if the main character Zoe become a little stronger and just not so childish is very difficult to take her serious when she act like a 15-years-old ( and i have see stronger 15-years-old character).
I think her a background story is a very strong one,so it should make her more strong and i don't know think things thru and stop acting like a big baby ( i guess anyone in her potion would be cry but if she acted smart she won't be in that situation to start).
The idea of the book I like plot love it, wonderful and with the other things aside ( main character).
when it come to the other character I think they all need a little more, expect the one she call TC (Trench‐Coat, the bad guy) in my opinion he is the only one there that is really acting as what he is and not some i bad but i would become good kind of thing.
over all i may read the next book because the end in this one is not a bad one and i know TC is coming back so i want to know what would happen with that.

Chosen by Jeanne C. Stein

She maybe the Chosen One... but that does mean everyone what her to be....

"It's been almost a year since bounty hunter Anna Strong became a vampire, but as she's about to discover, her greatest powers have yet to be unleashed...
Though Anna has become accustomed to the fact that she’s now a vampire, she still enjoys the illusion of being human. So when she suddenly notices that her primitive urges are getting harder to control, she’s worried. Then, she’s attacked, narrowly escaping with her life. The only person with enough motive to want her dead is her old foe—Warren Williams. But another more dangerous enemy lies in wait.
What Anna doesn’t know is that she’s far too valuable to kill. For she’s been chosen to shape the destiny of the vampire race—and all of mankind…"

I love it, and i like this one better than Legacy. Jeanne Stein knew she need it to break Anna ( our Heroin) so much in this one ( and in the past) that she would make the right choice when it came time for her to make the decision ( as the chosen one).

for this last book but definitely not the last i wasn't to sure what is was going to be bring to the table but I'm very happy with the end result. though i hope for some revelation in some of the event that take place in the book ( I don't say what are this " Event" because i don't want to spoil the fun) is for sure that Anna ( our Heroin) now has new enemies and that her decision of how to trust lies ahead ( also she now has a new partner in town and she most definitely would need to learned to trues both of them)

I find i love the end of this book and i actually love everything that happen because for once Anna ( our Heroin), doesn't let people threat her like she is nothing she is showing that she mean business and that she is to take serious she may be, hothead and impertinent but she deserve respect as the other do, not because she is the chosen one but because she has probe to be strong and Honorable.

now she has new enemies and maybe some more love in her ( but i know she need to learned how to trust once more) but that is to come in any future book for now the story is on hold and it probably it would come with everything it has to make the reader don't want to stop.

Retribution by Jeanne C. Stein

Blood to Blood.... Witch to death......
"With her partner out of town, her family abroad, and her mentor estranged, newly-turned vampire Anna Strong is keeping a low profile. But now young vampires are turning up dead, completely drained of their life force. And though Anna wants to say no when Williams, her former teacher and now leader of a supernatural enforcement squad, asks for her help, she can't. But soon, she'll wish she did. "
What to say about Retribution? Jeanne Stein knew what she want it to happen and how to make that happen. bad thing thought is that we see that Anna every time she try to help she end up killing someone and she is the one to blame because they can never see more of what is in from of them ( I'm a mean literally).
I find myself loving this character of Anna, but i think is time for Max ( her ex-boyfriend ) to come back i don't know if would see him again but i did love him as a character and i think is about time everyone that she has save see what she is doing no just her mistakes.
i like the book but my favorite still Legacy.
In this one a old foe is back and she is here to kill and do what ever it takes, and with a magic cream that can make a 40-year-old woman look 20-year-old things can never be that good, (but what is really in this cream is to shock many in the community).
Anna Strong live to her name in this one when she is to act as Strong for those around her, putting herself in the task to save the life of those she love and finding out some shocking things about herself alone the way, but how to trust is the question that would be answer as the series continued and once it come to end we all would found out what every vampire in the books is trying to control her for.

Legacy by Jeanne C. Stein

When you think there nothing more to lose you learned the true.......

"VAMPIRE ANNA STRONG...Anna has struggled to adapt to her supernatural status while clinging to the vestiges of her humanity. Now she must deal with her legacy. The sinister vampire who transformed her is dead, and Anna is entitled to his vast fortune. But a predatory werewolf comes forward, claiming the inheritance as her own - and she'll kill to get what she wants most: blood and money."

Finally it is!! here book i was so much waiting for ( the one i can bring myself to stop reading).

wow i love it!! This one book has it all, is not so much as the others (in tern of what she does to get there and all the investigation, this one is actually the only particular one that is the most normal and yet the best in my taste on the story) but what it happen make it the best of it.

Now what I think is sad is the fact that she has lost so much on the books love, humanity, friend and so much more, that i wish that she get at least something ( but at the very least she have her family happy) but so far even in this one she lose more that she gets.

She is now betrayed and now she is in more danger than before, but in the past she had help now she is on her own. I think for the coming books she is going to be in a lot of pain, and more betrayed i don't think this character is going to be available to trust someone after all the things that has happen to her and she been such a strong character and see that she can always break down is the best of the all ( because it show that she is human enough).

Also is sad that in this book we get to see how much of betray she is going to have take and I also think in maybe sometime, i think maybe 2 more book is time for David ( her partner) to know what she is. that way he can see all the things she has done for him because him treating her like garbage, I don't think is fear and maybe is time he give some sympathy to her as well. Now Max ( her Ex-boyfriend) in the other hand have to get his act together because she has done so much for him that he need at least hear her side of the story and them act on it. Everyone in this book need to at least see the good things she does and not only when she mess up is time for her to speak up.

i love this book love it love it is my favorite in the series so far and i can wait to see what happens next.

The Watcher by Jeanne C. Stein

She was make a vampire by mistake but she is now a watcher for human sake.
"Newly-made vampire Anna has become a Watcher-one of the supernatural world's enforcers- even as she fights to control her vampiric rage. When a series of very dangerous events threatens to draw out her unstable powers, her Watcher mentor sends her away for her own safety. But if there's one thing Anna has always been able to find, it's trouble."
I like it, is not bad but not the best on the series so far, and i haven't get that book were i can stop reading i can wait for it, it just haven't happen just yet ( also i still not happy with her sleeping around) now this book has a little more than the other book in here there is 3 different bad guys and all three have there own agenda and they want a piece of Anna.
the final chapters of the book are the best i love them ( because have the more action and the more break taking situation and realisation of some sort) and is mostly when everything is explain, now the end does let me guessing but no for what you think ( don't want to say why because i would been telling you something very important for the very end but i tell is something to do with Max and Anna).
I like the heroin don't think i want to chance something about her but i guess herself control where men and sex is involve, need a little more of though and i just want her to be with only one and i also like Max a lot but we have to see what happen. maybe on the future she makes Max and David vampires as well i think it would be like her link to them or something but we have to keep reading to know ( i know is not my best blog but is just that i don't have much words for the book).

Blood Drive by Jeanne C. Stein

Sometime blood is not only what make you family….

“Anna Strong was a tough-as-nails bounty hunter, until the night she was attacked-and changed forever. Now a vampire, Anna discovers that her long-dead brother may have had a daughter-and the girl's in serious trouble. There are some very dangerous people after her, but they're about to learn that to a bounty hunter with an unnatural thirst for blood, even the deadliest human predators are easy prey.”

Not bad for book 2, Some in the first book we know she kill Avery ( which I sad to see go, but I think was necessary).
Reading this book was okay ( but I pretty happy with the main character Anna). I like the plot and all that but what I didn’t like much is the fact that she has to always end up sleeping around, I want her to be with someone and only that someone not with anyone I guess I’m a romantic a heart ( I don’t think my friend would think of it as true but you never know).
The book has it moment and many revelations that would make many of the reader think about that, because many of them are reality to our country and sometimes they don’t talk because there scare. So I think I like this mostly because bring awareness to very difficult topics like child pornography and other as well and make it fun to read ( no fun to see some been abuse but to see that there is always help for those that speak up) so I like that about, this one and more important that there is always someone that would help you out ( but you have to speak up, even teacher can always help).The book end with a revelation in Anna point of view and I think many of the fan can say that is something that she should have done long ago, not wait until thing goes to wrong ( no what to say much) to know that she need help.
Let see what the next book would bring and see what happen to her human family and her new supernatural one.

Here is the link if you want to see what happens
