In this dark and intriguing paranormal romance from New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione, a forbidden romance turns deadly when a slayer is tasked with killing the demon who saved her life. 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...… (mais)

1.5 stelle.

Non sapendo da dove iniziare, parto col dire qual è l'unica cosa che mi è piaciuta di questo libro: parte del world-building, ovvero la presenza di svariate razze di demoni e dei loro peculiari poteri, l'Aegis (che li caccia) e Eidolon, in parte (alias, il suo carattere).
Basta, finito qui. Credo che quello che ho apprezzato sia troppo poco per dare due stelle a questo libro.
Quello che non mi è piaciuto:
- troppo sesso. Dopotutto doveva essere un romance, non un porno. Nella prima parte c'è una scena di sesso ogni 30 pagine, alias i protagonisti si vedono e a lui viene un'erezione e lei ha voglia di fare sesso. E 'sti qua nemmeno si conoscono. I poteri dei demoni che potevano essere 'qualsiasi-super-potere-immaginablie' hanno a che fare col sesso. EBBASTA! Siate un po' seri, cattivi! Siete demoni e non porno-star u.u
- Tayla: l'ho odiata dall'inizio alla fine. Pazza e irascibile: cambia idea una pagina si e una no. Passa dal voler farsi Eidolon al volerlo ammazzare. Il tutto con delle spiegazioni poco valide.
- La trama molto scarna. Quasi Tutto ruota attorno all'amore-odio fra i due protagonisti e alla caratterizzazione dei protagonisti.
Si salvano i colpi di scena che non posso spoilerare.

E' un vero peccato. i suoi libri dei Lords of Deliverance li ho amati, nonostante il genere fosse quello che fosse. Se riuscissi a trovare delle riassunti dei libri successivi, sarebbe una vera manna, altrimenti li dovrò leggere in fretta in furia per sapere com'è riuscita a collegare la serie Demonica con i LOD.

Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione was picked for our August COYER book club and I was leading the discussion. I also never completed the series and I'd like to. It was an easy choice to pick up this book.

The plot of Pleasure Unbound never stops. There is always something happening. It has also been a long time since I've read a proper romance and this one knocked my socks off. I liked all of the characters and I enjoyed learning more about them. I also really loved watching Eidolon and Tayla work through a whole bunch of garbage to get to their HEA and that seemed to give it more value.

Tayla.....oof. She was not my cup of tea at first. She's hard and completely inflexible. Of course she had to be but but Ione shows this over the course of the book instead of giving us the nitty gritty details right up front. Eidolon is fantastic and frankly I loved him from page 1. Pleasure Unbound is the first book in the series and Ione does a really great job of introducing an entire cast of characters that I want to know more about. I'm very excited to keep reading the series.

I am so glad that this book was picked for book club. It made me remember my love of romance novels.

Ok, so this was the Vaginal Fantasy alt book and I was forewarned by Felicia Day, who did the picking... Well, if the idea was the contrast to the YA book it was there. This, I think, borders on erotica (unless it can be defined as such, I'm not great with categories). Anyway, it maybe had bit more "sexy times" as the girls would say than I normally read, but I was pleasantly surprised. Because I mostly avoid erotica on the grounds that I rarely like the way sex scenes are written. This was pretty good on that account. And what is even better, it actually had an interesting plot that would've worked without the sex. I'm intrigued to check out the next book in the series. But I have a lot of reading to do, so I don't know when/if that'll happen. But, I was positively surprised, I didn't have a lot of expectations of this book and in the found it entertaining. I don't think it's the world's greatest literature or even my favorite series, but still, refreshing. ( )

Demon slayer arrives at the demon hospital causing all kinds of trouble and hot attraction by the big guy in charge. Sometimes we just don't know everything we think we do, and family is not necessarily dictated by blood or race.

The demon is a prince of the air and can transform himself into several shapes, delude our senses for a time; but his power is determined, he may terrify us but not hurt.

This book is dedicated to every single person who came to the aid of my family after Hurricane Katrina...you were instrumental in getting me back on my feet and writing again. Without you, this book would not have been possilbe. I will never be able to thank you often enough or well enough, but know that I will not forget.

To my parents, who never stopped encouraging me, who supported my dream from the beginning. I love you very much.

To my husband, Bryan, and my son Brennan, who put up with countless nights of hearing, "You're on your own for dinner," while I was under deadline. You mean the world to me.

To Roberta Brown, for being an incredible agent and having faith in my writing, and Melanie Murray for being patient, helpful, and enthusiastic about this project.

To HelenKay Dimon, Alison Kent, Lynn Viehl...you know why.

To my fellow Gnippers, who have been rooting me on for years.

Last but not least, to Karen Boss and Dee Knight, who took time out of their busy schedules to provide last-minute resads and the best advice ever, and Stephanie Tyler, Jaci Burton, and Lara Adrian, for more than I have room to list.
