Summary:

The first installment in a sexy new paranormal romance series by Larissa Ione, author of the bestselling Demonica series!

A WOMAN OUT FOR BLOOD
Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories—along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there’s one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . .

A VAMPIRE OUT FOR REVENGE
A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation—a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury him forever.

Review:

I got this book because I loved the Demonica series. So that gave me a very nice taste of Larissa Ione work. This book was more about explanations, because it’s the first in a series, so the author was introducing us to her new universe and I liked knowing these characters.

So in this new universe the humans know about the vampires and enslaved them a few years ago, but they also made them ginea pigs and experimentation is very disturbing. The humans are not the good guys and the free vampires live in the wild, they created clans and live in caves. Nothing to rudimentary, because they actually made a very nice living. We also discovered that vampires fight among each clan, but hey are living in a truce at the moment.

The humans almost destroyed the vampires, but Nicole is hoping to find a cure to vampirism, her family is really important and they have a company that is specialized in vampires, but Nicole doesn’t really know everything that is going on and her stepbrother is actually an ass. But Nicole is the good girl and her fear is only because she was attacked really young and almost died.

On the other side we have Riker and he’s a nice vampire, doesn’t kill humans for fun, but his mate suffered a lot with Nicole family and he resent her a lot, but he’s a nice guy and I liked the way he accepted Nicole.

It was a big book but the story was really good and I liked Nicole.

Paranormal Review: Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione

Desire Unchained (Demonica, #2)

Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .
Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn’t resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.
A Seminus Demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he’d seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts-or succumb to a madman’s evil plans.

Advice:

Due to its strong sexual content, this novel is recommended for readers older than 18.

I like this series but for some reason I always take to long to actually finish one book, nothing wrong there but it’s a reality for me. The best part for me is the world. So different and there are so many characters with feeding habits and dangerous points. I usually think the couple is on the sidelines from the big picture. This time we got more from the couple, but the fight also got more closer to them.
 
Shade we met on the previous book and he’s a seminus demon with a curse, strange right, but completely understandable, because we all know these demons need sex and Shade messed with the wrong female, because her husband decided to made a statement and now Shade can’t fall in love.
 
Runa we never met, but she was talked about on the previous book, but the problem with her was just humanity, because demons can’t mate with humans, but we also realized really fast that she was bitten by a werewolf and now one a month she howls to the moon. So she evolved and now is more than just a human, but Shade still has the curse problem, so mating between these tow was completely off question,until the sicko brother decided to play with people emotions. I liked this couple and they are so in love, it’s actually really cute.
 
I got to say these Seminus are really crazy without a female, I fear for Wraith after the way this book ended.

Paranormal Romance Review: Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione

Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, #1)

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . .
She’s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unshakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul . . .

I have this series on my TBR for ages now and finally decided to sit and read the first book, and I loved the action, romance, plot and different reality. It’s really cool to see demons and humans trying to get along and I loved this couple. Plus there’s a demon hospital, how cool is that?
Okay let’s start over and talk about the good stuff. Eidolon is a type of succubus, so he needs a little sex to live and he’s in the middle of a change and thinks constantly of the future and more sex, so he needs a mate, but it’s so hard to find a woman good enough to spend the rest of eternity together.
And that’s where Tayla comes because we can clearly see they have sparks flowing everywhere, but she is the enemy. She’s part of a human group that hunts and kill those demons, but her life changed when she met Eidolon. Tayla has some powers and what she didn’t knew is the very important thing for her life, she’s more than human, her father is a demon and her demon side is winning the war, she’s dying slowly.
These two groups are at war, and some demons are getting hunted because their body parts are being sold in the black market, so Tayla and Eidolon are part of the investigation time and are also handling their attraction.
But these two together are so hot, that I could not believe Eidolon was single until today. The guy has some crazy sperm and sex is out the stratosphere. I really liked this couple and this introduction for their world.
