Ecstasy Unbound (Guardians of the Realms #1) by Setta Jay

Upon starting Ecstasy Unbound, I was immediately drawn into this world of Gods and Demi Gods. These Guardians of the Realms were a welcome return to PNR for me. I settled in and really sunk into this story. I want to start off in saying that overall, I really liked this and will continue reading. I am hooked on the plot and the ongoing storyline, and I can’t wait to see where this goes. The characters are great. It’s a good combo of sexy, sweet, fierce alphas and smart, courageous, beautiful women.

However, there were two specific things that happen that I will be taking half a star away for. You can read the blurb/write up to get the gist of the story, it says it all. What’s below is definitely spoilery, so read at your own risk.

There is a rape scene in Ecstasy Unbound. It is written from start to finish, and as a person who finds erotica rape a turn off, it made me want to shelf this one. I think much could have been accomplished with a fade to black scene here. It’s just my personal opinion, but for those sensitive to this topic - that’s your warning.

Also I wasn’t a fan of the threesome on, for all intents and purposes, the “wedding night”. I mean really?

Alrighty there it is. Don’t throw stones at me I still liked it overall and yes I will be reading the next book in this series Ecstasy Claimed coming in March.

As one of the twelve Guardians of the Realms, Urian has spent the last several centuries in a constant battle to keep the inhabitants of Earth’s Realms under control. Humanity needed to evolve, hell beasts needed to die, and Immortal races needed mates. Unfortunately, he found that he cared less about duty, and more about when his sexy voyeur would again grace the shadows to watch as he and his brother Guardian shared one of the human females frequenting the club. All Guardians were forbidden contact with the little goddess and her brothers, but his need for her was escalating. He found it more difficult than ever to keep from pinning her face down on the nearest surface, and making her his.

Alexandra and her brothers have avoided exile from the human Realm for centuries, ever since the Creators sent the Gods to sleep for their sins against humanity, and banished the Immortals. She has always known that she was needed on Earth. Only once had she 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 that has ever truly enticed her. The only one that has ever made her flesh heat, and her stomach quiver with desire.

In desperate need to help her beloved brother, she will have to go to the enthralling Guardian, her dark obsession. He is her best hope to get the help she needs, even though he would surely attempt to exile her. She won't go easily
