And the blurb!
The struggle between good and evil is about to get… Wicked Hot
Edana is a succubus—a breathtakingly beautiful demon who offers men their most decadent fantasy in exchange for their souls. No one can get close to her without being destroyed..until she meets Eli and Dal. Both men are Nephilim, immortal warriors who bind and banish demons. Edana’s mission is to arouse their lust and steal their souls before they can destroy her—she never expects to fall in love. Shared by two virile lovers and lost in a world of sensation, Edana begins to fall for one of the warriors, jeopardizing her mission. Only he has power to save her, but first she must give him power over her heart—and her destiny…
I thought overall, it was a great read. I read in the matter of two days. When they say hot and steamy... this book delivers just that.
Edana is the succubus. (I looked it up.. succubus is a demon who takes the form of a highly attractive woman to seduce men. They draw energy from the men to sustain themselves, often until the point of exhaustion or death.) Her character is actually quiet funny and very blunt.
Eli and Dalen are Nephilim (Again, I looked up...no help.) They are describes as very huge men... in every department. My imagination can only fill in the blanks!!! Eli is a control freak and warrior; while Dalen is the magic master and playful one!
Edana's job is to seduce the warrior. His soul should be lost in hell forever. The warrior/magician are the last of their kind. The demon world is becoming over populated and they can't let that happen... That is why there are here. That is why the banish demons away; to control population! Can't give it all away...
The ending... kinda never really saw what was coming until the last few pages. And I do mean that. I kinda had a feeling something was going to happen with Edana and Eli, but never what happened.
There really was none; except the sex. You knew that was going to happen... with who or how might not have been predictable, but sex was going to happen!
Well... I was not exactly looking for the m/f/m thing. Didn't really know that was going to happen. Yea, I know... two virile lovers... nope, that didn't give it away for me. But the way it was balanced out was rather surprising. Now there were some parts that were very x-rated in the way it was told. I like hot scenes as much as the next, but some language takes some getting use to... especially when I just plunged back into the world of (erotic) reading from what seems like forever.
The story is actually quiet delicious! The middle of the book will let you hot and bothered. I love how Charlene gave the devil a name: Nick! Go figure. The ending is very "awww" moving. Makes you close the cover saying, "It really was a good book!"
The ending came very quick *no pun intended*. It went from story/sex/sex/sex/story.... to the end.
The cover is smoking HAWT.... man half naked... fire... come on!
Okay let me know how I did!!! And what I can do to make it better or what info can I give or let out!!!
