“ARC given for an honest review”
After a hellish month of searching, Immortal warrior Jax and his brethren, the Guardians of the Realms, are nowhere near finding the sleeping God who was stolen by their enemy. As if that isn’t problem enough, after millennia, other Guardians are dropping like flies to the mating frenzy. Jax never dreamed he could be next. After all, he’s too flawed, his sexual appetite too insatiable to ever be completely fulfilled by one being. Could a lone female even handle his needs let alone quench his never ending desire?
Ileana lives a solitary life in the shadows, a ghost thirsting for vengeance. A warrior Ailouros, half cat, whose sheer existence has been kept secret by a special ability no one can know exists, she is closed off and trusts no one. After thousands of years spent in near isolation while hunting her prey, she has finally found a clue leading to the location of her enemy. Revenge is at hand.
When a fantastically hot Guardian unknowingly puts himself in the middle of a deadly intrigue, nearly ruining her careful plans, Ileana is forced to make a choice. Her one chance at finding vengeance will hinge on hurling them both into piercing ecstasy.
“You will stay here, babe. There’s nothing to worry about.”
Piercing Ecstasy is quickly becoming one of my favourites of the series. There was mystery and intrigue from the get go. I loved Ileana’s character, loved her strong ability to fight and be independent. Ileana has finally tamed the playboy Jax and they just can’t get enough of each other. Two very independent souls join together with lots of hot steamy scenes as the mating curse takes effect.
I loved the background story of the two main characters and I can’t wait for Drake’s blood tests. Even though this is the 5th book of the series I really don’t feel like it’s been this long. The tempo of the book picked up the pace with Elizabeth’s side of the story where the God Apollo is now awake and on the run. I’m intrigued and excited to read the next book!
