Ecstasy Claimed - The Guardians of the Realms Series Book 2

This is the second book in the “Guardians of the Realms” series.  First let me say that these books are not for the faint hearted.  If you enjoy your romances spicy, with very hot alpha males, and strong females, these are the books for you!  I am certainly pretty happy that I have found Setta Jay!

In the first book, Ecstasy Unbound, we were introduced to Gregoire.  One of the guardians of the realm, he has spent his time in fighting for the security of the Realm.  He is a bad boy that has been having his fun while waiting for his mate, Alyssa, to reach maturity for him to be able to come forth and claim her. 

Alyssa has been waiting for her unknown mate to finally come forward and claim her.  Knowing that she has a mate walking around has made her feel pretty abandoned and embarrassed.  After all the years of waiting, her embarrassment has turned to anger and she decides it’s time to stop waiting around and go live her life like she wants to, with no mate to worry about. 

Taking off on vacation with her good friend, Rain, they decide to take advantage of all the upgrades available, including the special extra curriculum activities.  Gregoire gets wind of this and is not about to have someone else introducing his mate to what he can certainly provide himself!  So the adventure begins with these two.  Gregoire trying to win over his mate and Alyssa fighting from falling for this gorgeous alpha male that she is trying very hard to still be angry at for all the pain and embarrassment he caused her. 

It’s a good solid book.  The story is engaging and it can be a good stand alone book as well, but it certainly does not hurt to read the first one. 

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my latest read!

I received this book as an ARC from Net Galley for my honest review.

Ecstasy Unbound (The Guardians of the Realms Series Book 1)

Ecstasy Unbound (The Guardians of the Realms Series Book 1)
by Setta Jay (Author page can be found in this LINK)

Welcome to the world of The Guardian’s of the Realms, a group of immortal warriors in charge of watching over and protecting the four realms of this world: the Realm of Pure Souls, the Realm of Corrupt, the Realm of Humanity, and the Tetartos Realm.

In this first book of this series we are introduced to Uri, immortal warrior, and Alexandra (aka Alex) demi-goddess.  They have been circling each other for years, watching and following from a distance.  Building their obsession and lusting after each other.

Alex finally reaches out to Uri for help in saving one of her brothers, Erik.  When these two finally come face to face their sexual pull is incredible and unbeknownst to both of them their meeting starts the mating frenzy.  This comes as a complete surprise to Alex, Uri and the other immortal warriors.  To have immortal warrior and demi-goddess be destined to be mated is unique.   Their coming together is pretty explosive and sure to have you fanning yourself a couple of times! 

I really liked Alex.  She is a smart, strong heroine.  After the initial shock wore of she very naturally welcomed Uri as her mate.  Even with him being one “hot” alpha male, she was able to hold her own and bring out the softer side in him…not to mention the hard part!

Uri is to die for!  SUPER HOT!!! He certainly is a hot, dominant alpha male, oozing sexiness.  I love that he is very overprotective of Alex.  He is also very open to her desires and not only his. 

I enjoyed how this story flowed.  The beginning was a bit slow, but once I got passed the introduction of the book I was hooked.  There is a lot going on in this book, and I would think that it’s because it’s the first book of the series.  Many characters are introduced and some of the situations explained for you to be able to get a better feel of the story line and why our hero and heroine find themselves in their current situation.  With this all going on I believe the author did a great job and making it come together and flow through out the book. 

I must admit that at the end of the book I went back to the 1st chapter to re-read the birth of our immortal warriors just so that I was able to connect more of the pieces together.  This book reminded me of the JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, with the super sexy heroes and strong heroines. 

The sex/love scenes are very spicy and some sexual situations may be extreme for some. It is best to keep an open mind about the sex scenes. These males are very open, and more sexual in nature. There is a club scene at the beginning of the book that will have you taking a couple of deep breaths.  Pretty scorching! 

I should note that there is one rape scene that may be uncomfortable for some readers.

I am glad I found this book and look forward to reading the others in the series.
