*this book and this review is for mature readers only*
where I got my copy: e-book from B&N
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 unslakable 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 . . .
All hail smut lovers. This series is for you.
When I heard of Pleasure Unbound, I was looking forward on reading it. But the first part of the book was a glossary of all the fancy unpronounceable words that I know for sure that I will have to get used to. I am not a fan of that part. Turns out I don't really have to go back and see what it means so I was glad.
The world of Eidolon slash Dr. Demon slash Hellboy is interesting and atypical. For exmple, for them their God is Satan, whatever belief we have is reverse for them. He is also an Incubus by the way and he is a Doctor at Underworld General Hospotal that caters for Demons and other netherwolrdly creatures who got injured during hunting or during an encounter with the Aegis (humans that protect humans from demons and other hell spawn). He is fictional book boyfriend material. Dark hair, sensous lips, glorious bod, possesive, great lover... ok you get the point. Sadly for us, he does not exist and he belongs to Tayla Mancuso, an Aegi (enemy) who arrived at his hospital fatally injured after her battle with a Creuntus. Really Doc Demon should have killed her but after treating her wounds and examining her anatomy both literally and carnally, he couldn't and he would not let his brothers and his co-workers do it. Why? well turns out she's a half demon and he have the hots for her is it only the S'genesis (maturation cycle at 100 yrs.) talking or is it more than that?
Meet Doctor Demon's woman -Tayla Mancuso, Demon Slayer (yes his enemy), she hates them with passion, her mother got killed by one and the Aegis told her all the things that they are doing to make humankind life a living hell. Or so she thought. One fateful night of hunting injury and death of her partner lead her to Eidolon, who saved her life and showed her so many things and characteristic that are very undemon like. She wanted to hate him and kill him but a coonection they share wouldn't let her do it. To make matters worst she found out that she is half demon, the Aegis - the family that she thought she have is now trying to kill her.
I like it how Ione played the good vs. bad in this book. This is my first of her books and I'm so glad that I like it. Smoking hot sex scenes, Imaginative world, well developed main characters, awesome plot. What more could you ask for? If you are looking for a new Erotica with lots of hot demons and crazy villains this book is for you.
