Publisher's Summary

Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. Yet he craves a mortal woman, Danika Ford, more than breath and will do anything to claim her - even defy the gods.

Danika is on the run. For months she's eluded the Lords of the Underworld, immortal warriors who won't rest until she and her family have been destroyed. But her dreams are haunted by Reyes, the warrior whose searing touch she can't forget. Yet a future together could mean death to all they both hold dear.

Don't miss the other books in the Lords of the Underworld series.

    I enjoy listening and reading books. Also, I love fishing, swimming and just being with my family... "I'm forced to have to work".

    "Good Series"

    This series brings love, seduction, and action. This is a very good series and would make a great HBO TV show.

    Story
    "Pain is a big teddy bear"
    What did you love best about The Darkest Pleasure?

    The best part is how lovable Reyes is. Even though he is the demon of pain, he has learn to control the demon enough to only hurt himself. He always thinks of what his action will do to someone else.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part of the story is how Reyes takes care of Danika. He makes sure she has everything she needs and tries to protect her from his demon's violence nature.

    He doesn't want Danika's nature to change because of who he is and he tries to avoid having sex with her because he doesn't want Danika to have to hurt him to bring him pleasure, but surprisingly she doesn't have to.


    Which character – as performed by Max Bellmore – was your favorite?

    Reyes is my favorite in this story. Although his task is great, he does whatever it takes to do the right thing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The most moving moment is when Reyes losses Danika and he is besides himself, but he is still compassionate toward others, especially Danika's Mom, Grandma and sisters.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the idea of beings that are possessed by emotions and behaviors that we all have and how the characters deal with them.

    "good"

    I enjoyed this 3rd book of the Lords of the Underworld. Reyes' story is very romantic. The love scenes were adequate. If you are into this type of story, it won't be a wasted credit.

    "Reyes/Danika"

    OMG! Never had a hero pulled this many emotions out of me! One minute, Reyes made me want to cry and hold him, then two minutes later I think he is the strongest warrior I have seen. The Warrior of Pain was a true pleasure. I was glad to see him with Danika, someone to take care of his wounds, and give him a few if needed. This book is worth a few re-reads.

    "I have been waiting for Reyes' story. SO GOOD!"

    From the start of the series I have been waiting to listen to the story of Reyes and Danika. What a great story Gena weaves and you definitely get to know these characters in prior books so you are looking forward to more when their books are up. The series continues to get better with each book. Book one starts a little to slow for my taste but the ending made up for the slow start. Book two was much better and this 3rd book even better. More action and mystery with less slow spots.

    Like I said before, book one had me looking forward to Reyes' story and it was worth the wait.
