I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one.
To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now.
I was given this book for an honest review.
I had actually read this book awhile back, so I had the pleasure of rereading it so I could do this review. Lord and do I ever mean PLEASURE! I am telling you this book had me saying the most random things out loud. Thank goodness I was home alone at the time. I seriously had to put he book down and walk around the house. It was just so damn hot. I mean frankenfurter, grrrrr. See what I mean, I can hardly form rational thought here and I finished the book over 10 mins ago.
We get to meet Gabriel and Maximus first. YUMMY! They are a mated shifter and vampyr and I do believe I am now relocating to that city in Alabama so I can properly stalk these two. And let me tell you, I will not hide in shame either, I am going to be all out in the open about it. Anyways, let me get my hormones in check here, So my two sin cakes were contacted about hunting another mystic down, after discussing the job with their less than truthful employer they turned it down. But that didn't stop them from wanting to find her and figure out what the big deal was and if she was truly what they said she was. And this is where we meet, Sameya. She is a very old and very sought after Siren. I found her adorable, I mean not only was she short but she has red and black hair. I think Gracen had me in mind when she created this character lol. She is out and about minding her own business and trying to find out who is plotting against her Empress. When she suddenly meets Gabriel, and she can't deny the attraction she feels towards him. She figures it's all a fluke until she sees him with Maximus and from there, try as she might she can't deny the truth. It seems that that she has found her mate, oh wait let's make that mates. Yeah, here I hit sudden jealousy lol. What happens after these two vagina whisperers have her is nothing short of mouth watering, underwear melting, chaotic excitement.
For some odd reason Gab and Max have to convince her that she is meant to be with them. I understand her reluctance, after finding out what happens to a mated siren and the fact that she has been alone for so long. But I mean, come on now. Gab has tattoos and Max is pierced! lord is he ever pierced. Why would they have to convince anyone of anything? I figured out by this point that she was nuts. They could of asked me to paint myself with latex body paint, smother myself in baby oil and slide myself across a football field in the middle of the Superbowl, no convincing needed here. But sadly after gargantuas amounts of amazing sex, some very heartfelt actions and words she realizes she can't live without the two of them. Skank! Anyways, she finally gets to figure out who was after her Empress and her world is saved.
I really liked this story. There was mystery, action, humor, love, passion, lots of passion. It was a story that seemed to have a little bit of everything. The only thing I was a little disappointed in, was how easily they defeated the bad guy. It was such a build-up, but ehhh, it just happened to easily. But that would be my only complaint. I love how Gracen writes, she doesn't seem to hold back, It seemed with this story the more exotic and erotic the better it got. So overall, I loved the characters and loved the story. And as always, I will definitely be reading more from her.
