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, and light bondage.

My Rating:

I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review, all reviews and opinions are my own.

Warning this series is not for everyone, but it is definitely hot and heavy! Which of course my boyfriend did not mind in the least :P. I am glad the author has a warning that comes with her books because this is definitely a book that needs a warning, kind of like the males inside of the novels. I would have given this book a solid four stars if there was a bit more to the plot it just seemed like the plot was coming to something by the end of the book. I know first books usually set up for the rest and man do I mean it when I say I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series.

The Mythology is a nice touch to the plot line and I am excited to learn more about the Gods/Goddesses and about the Guardians past. This kind of reminded me of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books  at least with the Mythology aspect and the mating aspect of it. So I think that is why I really will like these books once I get deeper into the story.

I liked how at the end of this book it sort of sets up for the next one and now makes me excited to read about Gregoire. I really liked Uri and Alex they worked together pretty well and when Alex was feeling unsure in what to do next Uri reassured her and helped her bloom, in more ways than one. I am excited about getting to the next book in the series.
