Review: Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione

Demon slayer Tayla Mancuso is alone in the world with no family or close friends. The only thing going for her is her work as a guardian in The Aegis, a group of humans dedicated to ridding the world of evil. While out demon hunting one night she experiences sudden numbness in half her body which leads to a fellow slayers death and her own admission into the Underworld General Hospital.

Eidolon, a Seminus (sex) demon is the doctor who created and runs UGH. Nearing his 100 year S’genesis, a transformation into maturity, Eidolon needs to find a mate before the change is complete or he can end up as sex crazed demon that will stop at nothing to impregnate as many women as possible.

Forced by The Aegis to befriend Eidolon, Tayla gets drawn into a conspiracy that shakes her to the core. Betrayed yet again she seeks comfort in his arms but is it really becoming true love or just the means to stop the S’genesis clock?

I’m doing this backwards but when I read and loved book 3 in the Demonica series, Passion Unleashed I knew I had to start from the beginning. This book is just as sizzling as the 3rd one. The characters are well developed and their storyline is unique. I like that even though the characters are demons they still feel things like guilt, shame and fear. They also have their own personal demons (snicker) that they have to battle and overcome.

This was a great beginning and I can’t wait to read book 2, Desire Unchained featuring Eidolon’s brother shade. Highly recommended for paranormal lovers.

No worries, I started it backwards too with Passion Unleashed first but I loved every page and I am definitely picking up the other ones.

Sex crazed demon? Love the sound of that. Need to check the book out. Thanks for the heads up, Monie.
