As one of the twelve Guardians, Urian has spent the last several centuries in a constant battle to keep the inhabitants of Earth’s Realms under control. Humanity has to evolve, hell beasts need to die, and Immortals need mates. But lately, Uri's mind is overrun with thoughts of when his sexy voyeur will find him again, watching him from the shadows, continuing their wicked game. All Guardians are forbidden contact with the little goddess and her brothers, but his need for her escalating, he finds it increasingly difficult to keep from pinning her down on the nearest surface and making her his.
Alexandra has managed to evade the Guardians and being cast out from the human Realm for centuries, ever since the Creators sent the Gods to sleep for their sins against humanity and banished all Immortals. Always sensing that she was needed on Earth, only once has Alex gone against her instincts and the price she paid will forever haunt her. It is for that reason she forces herself to stay away from the only male who has ever truly enticed her. The only one who has ever made her long for what she knows is dangerous.
In a desperate need to help her beloved brother, she will have to go to the enthralling Guardian, her dark obsession, and even though he will surely attempt to exile her, she won't go easily…
Warning: This book contains explicit and sizzling sex scenes with big dominant males. MFM ménage, dirty talk and bad language.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Before starting Ecstasy Unbound you should read the glossary at the beginning of the book. Yes, I was a bit put off that I had to read a glossary. I felt a prologue laying out the history of the world would have been much easier to digest and my rating reflects this. The good news is this is my only issue with the book. Once I figured out the history of the world and why almost all the immortals and demi-goddesses were exiled to a different realm, it was smooth sailing and I thoroughly enjoyed the book
Ecstasy Unbound has an insane amount of world building but what a world it is. A war between the gods had resulted in the Creators putting all the gods to sleep and exiling the Immortals to live in the Tetartos realm. The Guardians were tasked with protecting the four realms of Earth, ensuring that humanity could evolve and that the gods remain asleep. Exiled or not, some of the children of those gods continue to try to continue their parent’s evil plans and the Guardians need to stop them.
Alex, an immortal demi-goddess who escaped being exiled, was strong, brave, caring and sacrifices an unbelievable amount in her quest to watch over humans. Her life has been beset with the repercussions of a vicious attack, but she stays strong despite what happened and the limitations placed on her because of it. Needless to say, I absolutely adored her.
I loved Uri too— the gruff alpha had been just surviving all these long years, not really living. His long existence was wearing on him but the forbidden glimpses he’d get of his little demi-goddess kept him going, even though he was supposed to send her into exile on sight.
I found everything about Uri worthy of awe. His care for Havoc, the hell hound he saved, all made me melt into a pile of goo. The more I got to know him through his inner thoughts, the farther I fell for him as a character.
The chemistry between these two even before they officially come face to face is off the charts hot. When they finally do get together it results in one hell of a sexy ride, that you get to go on over and over again. I loved how I got a smutfest of epic proportions that didn’t detract from the story at all. In fact, it added to it in some fantastically panty melting ways.
The rest of the Guardians along with Alex’s brothers all had me wanting to know more about them and rooting for all of them to find their destined mates. With all the action, mystery, and sexy times I was treated to, I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series to see what Gregoire has in store for me.
