The Darkest Pleasure by Gena Showalter Review

Summary: (taken from Goodreads)

Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. Yet he craves a mortal woman, Danika Ford, more than breath and will do anything to claim her—even defy the gods.

Danika is on the run. For months she's eluded the Lords of the Underworld, immortal warriors who won't rest until she and her family have been destroyed. But her dreams are haunted by Reyes, the warrior whose searing touch she can't forget. Yet a future together could mean death to all they both hold dear.…

My Thoughts:

I'm loving this series; I seriously can't get enough of it!

I never thought that each of these stories would be completely unique and original. Every Lord of the Underworld has a different story, different attitude to life and their circumstances and a completely different personality yet they seem to mesh so well.

I don't even know what to say anymore; I just think this story is so flawless and is one I could read over and over.

It was full of action, steamy romance and fabulous Greek mythology.

Definitely well worth the read.

Great quotes:

Legion hissed like a startled cat, the noise scraping at Reyes’s skin. “Me no boy. You think me a boy?” 
Everyone stopped, stared. Even Aeron. 

Reyes was the first to find his voice. “You’re a…girl?” 
A nod. “Me pretty.” 
“Yes, you are.” Reyes exchanged a glance with Lucien. “Beautiful."

I'm sorry...I had to throw that quote in! It makes sense in the story I promise you and had me laughing for ages!
