Alexandra has managed to evade the Guardians and being cast out from the human Realm for centuries, ever since the Creators sent the Gods to sleep for their sins against humanity and banished all Immortals. Always sensing that she was needed on Earth, only once has Alex gone against her instincts and the price she paid will forever haunt her. It is for that reason she forces herself to stay away from the only male who has ever truly enticed her. The only one who has ever made her long for what she knows is dangerous.
In a desperate need to help her beloved brother, she will have to go to the enthralling Guardian, her dark obsession, and even though he will surely attempt to exile her, she won't go easily…
Warning: This book contains explicit and sizzling sex scenes with big dominant males. MFM, ménage, and light bondage.
As this is the first book, there's an awful lot of world building and creatures, name, Demi gods, etc to get to grips with, which is necessary I know but a bit tedious. What really made me sit up and take notice though was the uber hot initial ménage scene which was a complete surprise! Yes, much more erotic than I expected but then the characters started to make themselves known and finally the storyline took off.
Alex is a Demi god and by rights should not be roaming the Earth but like her two brothers she is determined to help the Guardians if she can and there's one in particular she's had her eye on for centuries. Uri, as a Guardian, knows his role is to help humanity evolve whilst keeping the realms safe. Problem is there's one particular female he aches for but it's his job to catch her and put her in prison. When Alex comes to him for help, Uri can finally stake his claim but then the unthinkable happens and he just can't let her go!
Wow, not for those seeking a sweet romance! The heat level is incendiary from start to finish so if scenes involving more than two people not your thing, maybe skip Ecstasy Unbound, but if you are open minded, there is a good story here.
Yes, it’s just the beginning of this series with its roots in mythology but there are many diverse characters to get to know. A strong group and yes, primarily alpha type males but there are female Guardians too. They're all sharing the same purpose which makes for a connection that almost feels like family and I liked that. As for the bad guys, well suffice to say terrible things happen in this book that will shock some. I really want to see those responsible get their comeuppance so yes, I'm firmly onboard to read the next book Ecstasy Claimed and at least this time I'm going in with a fire extinguisher!
