Pleasure Unbound, by Larissa Ione

22 Aug

Format: Mass Market Paperback, 389 pages
Published: June 20, 2008
Publisher: Forever
Back cover blurb:
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…


My review:

I wasn’t sure if I would like the whole demon thing, but it turns out these demons are the sweetest, hottest things around. It was Tayla I couldn’t warm to much, mainly becuase she kept trying to kill the lovely demons. But about a third of the way through I found I couldn’t put this book down.

My original copy had a large chunk of pages missing – all of chapters 21 and 22 – which was annoying, but luckily I found the book online and read the missing passages there. *slightly guilty look* It saved me returning it to the Book Depository in England, anyway. However, as Ione’s books aren’t sold here in New Zealand and I can’t buy them for my Kindle either (grumble – damn Asia Pacific region boxblocking me again!) I’ll have to risk the Book Depository to buy the next in the series. Cos, oh yeah, I’ll be reading it.


My rating: 4/5
